Review: Four Crows by Lily White

*****5 Stars*****

In Four Crows, Lily White brings us a story of family, passion, revenge, loyalty and obsession. If you've ever read one of White's books, you know to expect a compelling read filled with compelling characters, complex storylines and uncomfortable moments. Four Crows holds true to that tradition and was an immensely enjoyable and gripping read.

Eliot returns from the Marines to an empty house. Determined to discover the whereabouts of his wife and son, he soon finds himself engaged in an obsession that leads him right to Maggie's (Magpie) door. He plans to use her as an instrument of revenge, but along the way, passion begins to battle with his obsession for revenge?

For Maggie, her whole life has been a sheltered one where she is protected by her family, one she loves, but has grown to fear. She cannot fight the passion she feels for Elliot, but she has a loyalty to her family she can not easily forsake.

This is a wild, passionate, heartbreaking and at times disturbing read that I found impossible to put down. Elliot and Maggie are characters you will cry for while also hating at times. Lily White puts you through an emotional rollercoaster and it was worth every nail biting minute. You'll be just as caught up and obsessed with revenge as Elliot and you'll question who is truly worthy of loyalty right alongside Maggie.

“You’ll have to forgive me, Darlin’, for all the unforgiveable things I’m about to do…”

Loyalty is never easy – especially when you’re forced to choose between family and the man you would do anything to possess…

Born into a world that no child should endure, Magpie “Maggie” Crow is doted on by her loving father and over protective brothers. As much as she loves them, she fears them, especially when she learns secrets they've kept hidden.

Elliot McLaughlin joined the U.S. Marine Corps right out of high school to provide for his wife and son. He’d never intended to become a father so young, but was willing to do what it took to give his family everything they needed.

After Elliot’s family goes missing, he returns from war to an empty home. Obsessed with discovering who took his family, he investigates their disappearance and plots his revenge.

Passion brings Maggie and Elliot together. Obsession pushes them apart. As a bitter battle begins between Elliot and the Crows, Maggie’s heart hangs in the balance.
