    When does The Crow come out over here?
    The Crow comes out in July in England, though you can order it through Australian book sites like some of the other English and American posters have.

    Wow oh wow I loved it! I was slightly apprehensive at the lack of Maerad and Cadvan in the Crow, but that fell away pretty much as soon as I opened the book. It is, I agree, the best written so far, particularly in its emotional pull (well, for me anyway).
    The tension that builds up during the first section is developed so well that I started to get jittery myself. It was a real struggle to tear myself away from the pages.
    The descriptions of the environments were excpetional, but what really got me was the attachment I began to feel to these characters. I hadn't really expected to care as much for Saliman and Hem as much as I did for Cadvan and Maerad, but that's the skill of Alison's writing. Saliman is such a beautiful character! I am looking forward to the day that Maerad and Hem meet up again so much! Bring on 2008.
    It was a shock to hear about Zelika after all that time Hem spent in Sjug'hakat Im and especially after Hem made the marriage comment. I still hold onto a small hope that somehow Saliman buried another girl and Zelika will turn up in The Singing. The Cur camp certianly was disturbingly reminiscent of the Nazi camps, and the glimpse of Sharma gave me chills. Nyanar is an intriguing addition to the story; it is interesting to see how Hem's Elidhu blood reveals itself in comparison to Maerad's. The discovery of the tuning fork brings a beautiful symbolism to the riddle of the treesong.
    Overall, I thought this book put the whole story into a new perspective, both in terms of the world of Edil-Amarandth (sp?) and in the relationships between characters. It also added a powerful new emotional dimension and made me wonder at Alison's talents - and my luck at having first stumbled into her fantastic creation!

    I am pleased to announce what would appear to be the very first piece of fanart for the crow! And indeed the first fan art i have EVER done. I did it on the back of an emily dickinson poem in english, and it's of the scene where Zelika finds Nisrah and pulls on him. It was a scene that jumped out at me, and before i knew it, it was on paper!
    my goodness! it took forever to sing up on deviantart, but here it is:

    thanks!

    I have absolutely no will power what so ever.Part of the reason i haven't been on for so long was because I knew that this would happen.
    I hate England.I love austrailia.I'm jealous of my brother.Icould ask him to send it me...but that'd take too long...I think I'm going to cry.
