Friday Memes: Ferals by Jacob Grey

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Ferals by Jacob Grey. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
A sinister threat. A city in danger. A boy with the power to command the crows. Ferals is the first book in a dark, action-packed trilogy that's part The Graveyard Book, part Batman, and all high-octane adventure.

Blackstone was once a thriving metropolis. But that was before the Dark Summer—a wave of violence and crime that swept through the city eight years ago, orchestrated by the fearsome Spinning Man. Now the Spinning Man is on the move again, and a boy named Caw is about to be caught in his web.

Caw has never questioned his ability to communicate with crows. But as the threat of a new Dark Summer looms, Caw discovers the underground world of Blackstone's ferals—those with the power to speak to and control animals. Caw is one of them. And to save his city, he must quickly master abilities he never knew he had...and prepare to defeat a darkness he never could have imagined.
Beginning:
The night belonged to him. He wore its shadows, tasted its scents.
Friday 56:
When they left the library, Lydia's bag was full of new books, and most of them had a lot more words than Caw was used to.

  1. Great atmosphere in the passages you selected. And it sounds like a very original book.

  2. Nice beginning. I like "tasted its scents." I'm curious about how Lydia and Caw got together.
    My Friday post features MIDDLE-AGED CRAZY.

  4. I really like both snippets for different reasons. The beginning is more intriguing, but you always grab me when you mention books or libraries. :-)
    Happy weekend!
