The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank you Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group via NetGalley for the ARC ebook of The Crow Girl: Victoria Bergman, 1-3 by Erik Axl Lund
This riveting and compelling story tipped the orbit of my planet. It knocked me off my axis.
Some books are hard for me to review because of the power of their impact on me as a reader and human being.
For eight months I have wrestled for fitting words to describe this read.
Translated from Sweedish by Neil Smith; the over 700 pages are alive.
Do not expect mediocracy. The tapestry of words although frightening, hold one in mental restraints.
Think of The Crow Girl: Victoria Bergman, 1-3 as a discovery of a shape-shifting community of people.
Through the pen of Erik Axl Lund the reader is witness to the effects on victims by dark and deranged parts of upper society.
Upstanding citizens are the monsters hidden in plain sight. Twisted souls released from their claws attempt to rise above such evil transgression.
I apologize for not being able to give a better review. The writing, plot, subplots and characters are phenomenal.
I recommend The Crow Girl: Victoria Berman, 1-3 to readers who are seeking a unique story and crave a twisted carnival ride.
Abusive Sex, language, and violence.
