Overview

What would you do to win your freedom?

This is the question that sets bondwoman, Martise of Asher, on a dangerous path. In exchange for her freedom, she bargains with her masters, the mage-priests of Conclave, to spy on the renegade sorcerer, Silhara of Neith. The priests want Martise to expose the sorcerer's treachery and turn him over to Conclave justice. A risky endeavor, but one she accepts without hesitation--until she falls in love with her intended target.

Silhara of Neith, Master of Crows, is a desperate man. The god called Corruption invades his mind, seducing him with promises of limitless power if he will help it gain dominion over the world. Silhara struggles against Corruption's influence and searches for ways to destroy the god. When Conclave sends Martise as an apprentice to help him, he knows she's a spy. Now he fights a war on two fronts--against the god who would possess him and the apprentice who would betray him.

Mage and spy search together for a ritual that will annihilate Corruption, but in doing so, they discover secrets about each other that may damn them both. Silhara must decide if his fate, and the fate of nations, is worth the soul of the woman he has come to love, and Martise must choose continued enslavement or freedom at the cost of a man's life. And love.

Honestly this book was really an enjoyable read! I love the characters, plot,romance and action. When I found this book I was looking for a story that had a little of everything but I really wanted to enjoy a book with wizards and magic though not many things popped up that had the setting or type of fantasy story I wanted but this book made my day. l bought it early in the morning and I didn't even realize that it was like 2am the next day by the time I finished cause I just had to finish it. Anyway if you want a good fantasy with romance... (cause I'm all about romance balanced with action) I would suggest getting this book and follow Martise on her journey with Silhara the Master of Crows.

Richly drawn characters and excellent world building In Master of Crows, Grace Draven masterfully creates a complex world and beautifully drawn characters that you could easily imagine in front of you occurring in a distant time and place. I won't go into the plot details as that is more than adequately covered by the synopsis and by other reviewers. Although the tale takes place almost entirely at Neith, the home of Silhara, (with a few side trips), the scenes are not confining, and the steady pace as everything unfolds is just right. The gradually building relationship between the initial adversaries Silhara and Martise is a delight to witness, and the increasing intent of Corruption's influence over Silhara is a source of progressive dread. Add in the interactions among a sardonic anti-hero, an unassuming but surprisingly feisty heroine, and a mute but colorfully "spoken" servant, not to mention an enemy god and master mage, and you have the makings of a wonderful, unforgettable novel. Since discovering this book in 2013, I've returned to it at least once a week. Among my favorites scenes: the market place, the home of the lich, and the culminating battle. You'll understand why when you read them. Note: Although there is some sex in the book, it is not central to the tale or the characters, and it is not gratuitous. In short, Master of Crows is one of those books that you will want to read and reread, time and again

This book was nice, but the first 100 pages were kind of slow. I wanted the story to move a little faster, after that it picked up fast. If there is another one in this series I will read it.

This book took me totally by surprise. I read the author's other book "Entreat Me" and found it good and above average. This book is even better. The characters were well written. Their relationship had ups and downs and twists and turns. I actually cried at the climax of the story. Grace Craven is a really wonderful author.
