Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"D'Lacey's passages are rife with urgency, and... its message on environmental issues, meticulous setting of scene, and successful intertwining of the characters' narratives makes for an engaging read."
-Publishers Weekly

“A bold beginning to a new duology from the brilliant D’Lacey – where two children embark on a search for meaning that is riddled with ambiguity about the nature of the saviour they seek and which, ultimately, provides a siren call to live in harmony with the land.”
- Alison Littlewood, author of A Cold Season

I highly recommend this to any fans of horror, post-apocalyptic type books. Loved it, loved it - I want the next one already.
-Thoughts of a Scot

"...full of powerful and beautiful passages that while written for this fictional Earth, are also very strongly advocating for us as a people to take better care of the Earth we live on."
-Wilder's Book Review

“Spectacular is the word I’d use to describe the novel. Nothing else can capture the reading experience.” 
-The Founding Fields

"It's dark and it's grim, but it's also magical...wondrous, even."
-Beauty in Ruins

Library Journal
Two children, one living during the Black Dawn, an apocalyptic breakdown of Earth's environment and the rise of a totalitarian government, the other existing in a future time of recovery and attempted healing known as The Bright Day, embark on separate quests for the Crowman, who might be the world's salvation—or its destruction. D'Lacey (Meat) launches the first volume in a duology that assumes the quality of myth. A must-read for mythology fans.
