Rating by Katie:4 out of 5 stars
Saba and her family live alone, struggling to survive in Silverlake. They live off the wasteland left over by the Wrecker civilization. Lugh, Saba's brother, is kidnapped from home by bandits on horses. Saba and her younger sister go on an adventure to rescue their older brother.
Saba eventually finds herself fighting in the slave games and her younger sister in the servitude of their captors.
The Crow of Death is the name that the city gives her. Saba is fighting for her life and she refuses to lose. She must make her escape, save her sister and again start her search for her twin brother. She meets a young man, Jake, who is also a slave fighter and a young woman who is  part of an elite girl gang called the Free Hawks.
The Hawks get her free and then the journey begins again. Now with the help of the Free Hawks and her new friend Jake, they go hunting for Lugh.
Through this journey she befriends the Hawks and falls for Jake.  Jake and the Hawks work together to help Saba and her sister find Lugh. They fight armies and each other on this adventure and I loved reading every moment of it.

I was hooked to this story as soon as I opened the pages. There is so much action and fighting. There is never a dull moment. I was finding it hard to put the book down just to sleep! There was some romance, but nothing too mushy. I love Jake and Saba together and watching their relationship grow. This book is great and I am always finding myself recommending it to others.
