Voice of Crow (Book #111)
Voice of Crow (Jeri Smith-Ready, 2007) is the second book in the fantasy trilogy that began last year with Eyes of Crow. They're part of a genre I'm coming to think of as "village fantasy"--think Sharon Shinn's YA fantasy or Lois McMaster Bujold's Sharing Knife series. There's a rustic, pastoral feel, and magic is woven into the fabric of life. In this case, the heroine's peaceful world is being threatened by a neighboring city-state with imperial ambitions. It's a good read, though it took me awhile to catch on to remember enough of what had happened in the previous book to follow the action.
