Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Suspense/College/Dark Romance
Author: Veronica Eden
Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
A bloody cloak and dagger story fueled by suspense and mystery and intertwined with a dark, hungry love story.
The Crowned Crows walk the line of morality. Four friends who are more like brothers run an underworld of fighting rings, polker, and more, and they run it on secrets and favors. As the story went along this concept became clearer as these boys already live in a rich, entitled world. Trust fund babies who want for nothing, but knowing the dark secrets of the rich and powerful who think they run the city is worth more than any amount that sits in their bank account. This is what makes the Crowned Crows so powerful and what sends Rowan seeking their help in locating her missing brother.
Rowan is desperate, her brother has been missing for several weeks without any word and the police weren’t any help. Her last desperate attempt is seeking out the Crowned Crows, she’s heard they have methods for getting information, however, Rowan just needs to give up a favor in return.
Getting to know the four crows; they are each unique. Colton is fun, the total jokester. He is witty, sassy, and full of comebacks. Levi is silent and lethal. He comes off broody and surly, but I suspect he could be possessive and caring underneath. Jude was the biggest mystery of the four of them. A con man who can easily slip into any role. Last, but certainly not least is Wren. The king crow who is commanding, powerful, imposing, and infatuated with Rowan. Wren breaks all his rules for the girl who breaks down all of his walls, or more likes storms past them. She may have infiltrated the camp of monsters, but she also fits right in with them.
This book was full of surprises and lots of twists. It’s only the beginning of the suspenseful plot and will continue in the upcoming books.
