Publisher's Summary

The Crows are the noble messengers of the gods. But all the gods have left. The world is baring the mark of their neglect. Slowly, the world is decaying. The Crows are all starving and doing anything they can to survive, but how much longer until there is nothing they can do to live through the undeniable end that is heading their way?

Korbinian, the youngest of the Crows, stumbles upon a sick and dying girl Adira. Can his blessing to her be the thing that saves them all? Or, will they remain tethered to a dying world and share its impending doom?

This story was complete and spectacular surprise!

This story was complete and spectacular surprise! A wonderful read! The story was really creative which flowed into the characters. Korbinian was a mystery to me and that made me want to know more. I felt there was more to him and his part in the story. The narrators voice was great in bringing the story to life. I was left with a feeling of hope and wondering if things remained the same….I give this 4 stars.

Four out of Five Stars!

King of Crows is a mystical novella by one of my favorite authors, Nia Rose. Telling the tale of old gods and their familiars, or rather their "Crows."

The Crows are dying, their Gods having abandoned them. They scrape by as best they can, unable to sustain nourishment in a faithless world. One such crow, Korbinion, struggles to maintain his immortality. But a chance encounter helps lead him to the possibility of more than just living.

Having listened to the audiobook, narrated by Matthew Weilding, I greatly enjoyed this story. My only gripe is that it was so short compared to what it could have been. I would have loved to see this world expanded upon.

All in all, a quick listen that is highly enjoyable and worth giving a chance!

Poetic and powerful

King of the Crows is a book that is creative, powerful and spiritual. I must admit that I didn't believe that I would love this book as much as I did but it gave me pause to think about how strong faith could be. Matthew Weilding did a great job as narrator with his powerful commanding voice. I loved the storyline and how well Nia Rose developed it from the beginning till the end. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes books that are poetic and full of faith.

A life line in a sea of same.

When I came upon The King of Crows, by the ever talented Nia Rose I was on the verge of taking a long break from books. I felt like i had become stuck in a rut with what I had been reading ornlistening to and no tittle could pulled me out of it. That's not to say that the books I read were bad. They had just seemed to be missing somthing that I couldn't quite grasp.
The King of Crows is short by most standards but the way it held its perspective and focus held my attention completely. The narration by Matthew wielding brushed against fond memories of Dante Alighieri and Virgil guiding him downward through Hell in the Devine comedy, of the letters sent home from transylvania by Jonathan Harker. in Bram Stoker's haunting Dracula.

I cannot recommend it enough. A story of hope pulled from the depths of despair.

Interesting

This was a very interesting story, very well written too.
I liked the idea of the crows as some sort of religious thing.
I found the book festinating. Although I’m not sure what to make of it, even though I couldn’t stop listening lol
The narrator was great, his voice seemed to fit the tale.
