Reviewed by Miche Arendse for Readers' Favorite

Black Bird by L.E. Harrison takes place in Blackwater Hills, home to the tribe of Corvus. It follows the tale of Alena Andrick as she attempts to take her place among the priests of the Sacred Order and become the next Guardian of the Dead. That is before Michael Singleton waltzes into her life and changes everything on the night of the Spring Solstice. Alena is enchanted with Michael but that attraction is more dangerous than she realizes. Amid secrets and lies, Alena will have to choose what is more important; the person she loves or the well-being of the tribe she grew up in.

Black Bird by L.E. Harrison is my favorite kind of book. It has just the right amount of romance, mystery, and creative twists to the paranormal. This book did a fantastic job of keeping you hooked as you go through the story and makes you empathize with the characters through their struggles. I love that you get to see the story through the perspective of other characters especially Jonathan, who is considered an outsider, as you see him battle between logic and what he experiences among the tribe. I also loved the side characters of Mack and Justin who brought an unexpected bit of comedy relief with their antics. This book truly was a joy to read and I cannot wait to get into the rest of the series. This story is well written with such amazing characters and I look forward to their development from this point forward.
