January has kicked off with a bang for Prentice and the Kingdom of Aves series. If you need social proof of how awesome this series is, check out the praise and critical reviews:
Book Riot’s 6 of the Best Black Indie SFF Writers You Should be Reading highlights Kill Three Birds.
“First off, I cannot get over this cover. (The cover for the sequel, A Theft Most Fowl, is also gorgeous.) Second, we have winged people following a Phoenix goddess, with a caste system that’s laid out as kind of birds. And our main character, Prentice Tasifa, is a Hawk, gifted with the supernatural ability to see things others can’t. And then it’s a well written procedural mystery where Prentice has to hunt down a serial killer.”–Alex Acks
Author Judy Black says of A Theft Most Fowl, “A gorgeous sequel to the first book, the mystery hits hard from the first page and kept me turning pages (digitally of course) until I finally reached the shocking ending.” Read her entire review by clicking HERE.
“In A Theft Most Fowl, we return to the Kingdom of Aves and a new mystery. Not only do we rejoin Hawk Prentice Tasifa in solving another dastardly crime, we delve deeper in Prentice’s past and learn something of her past hopes and sorrows while exploring new corners of Aves and its complicated politics.
Nicole Givens Kurtz continues to deeper her exploration of the unique world she has created, introducing new characters and deepening relationships. Most fantasy-mystery these days seems to be written in an Urban Fantasy setting. Kurtz’s abandonment of that trope is one of the things at makes this series stand out.”
