Two young people, a man and a woman, coming of age, separated in time, and separated by an event. An eco-apocalyptic event which should re-shape humanity, reducing its population by 90%. D’Lacey combines brilliant worldbuilding with compelling, interesting characters. Two chosen ones: Megan Maurice follows a shaman-apprenticeship to bring the story of the Crowman back into knowledge. Gordon Black is separated from his family by events, including the shadowy, New World Order-ish Ward. Eminiently readable, compelling, and driven by strong narrative voice, Black Feathers is a read that will make you want to drink it in and find out more.
