Book Description

Dec 23 1997 Crow
William Blessing is obsessed with Edgar Allen Poe. Like Poe, he is a writer of dark fantasy. And like Poe, he has powerful enemies. One of them pretends to be a friend, even as he plots to murder William and steal his wife. Blessing's only hope is to learn the truth about his "friend" before...

But this is the realm of the Crow, where the grave is the doorway to the truth. William must walk through it to discover Poe's final secret. Then, and only then, with the help of a dark-winged "Raven," can he return to feed on the human carrion who raped his wife and slaughtered his soul.

1.0 out of 5 stars FOR THE FIRST NEW CROW NOVEL, VERY POOR.... March 17 2004
Format:Paperback
Upon reading this book again(my first review back in 2000 and btw..thats my mother's ID..my ID is Deaderman)., I find myself with a dislike for the story now. I applaud the originality of linking the crow with Edgar Allen Poe. I would say that i dislike the story for the simple fact of the Batlimore Goths and the seemingly forced love of Amy and William Blessing. I would not recommend this book to a new crow fan wanting to get into these. Most fans would say that the bad guys in CoA were poorly written and just plain crappy. Well, these guys are far worse. Makes you want to get the story over with just to get away from these poorly executed characters. I would very much agree with all of these negative reviews and in fact join them. Now, onto reading the Lazarus Heart..

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money Jan. 17 2003
Format:Paperback
This book was not at all enjoyable to me. I honestly hope that this author does not look upon "Baltimore Goths" the way he portrayed him in the book. They were corny, along with most of the other characters. He tries to put together "thugs" and "goths" throughout the book. Honestly, if I pick up a book about 'Gothiques' and Poe, I dont wish to be reading about drug trafficing and hits on the Baltimore gangs.
His development of local color is sad too, mindlessly throwing around locations and names and such.
Also, the authors lack of research really shows when he brings up Anton Lavey. He not only spells his name wrong, but brings up animal sacrifice, which is NOT an Anton Lavey/Satanic practice.
If you wish to read something good in the way of The Crow or horror, check out Poppy Z. Brite. She's not the absolute best, but she does make for some good reading, better than this ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Like your revenge kicked up a notch? Sept. 24 2002
Format:Paperback
First time reader (I've seen the movies) of The Crow series, and I'm certainly glad I picked this as my first book. I've now started collecting some of the others as well. I'm that hooked. For me, this was like The Count of Monte Cristo meets Edgar Allan Poe. I thoroughly enjoyed the Poe references and how the revenge theme was woven into the story line. Talk about your avenging angel! More sinister than Monte Cristo, though. I'd love to see another Crow movie come out soon. You'll be sorry if you haven't read this one yet or, like me, are new to the genre and aren't sure where to start. Start with this one.
The graphic novels are cool as well and are easy reads. Great art work. They help flesh out The Crow in my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY ,ABSOLUTELY,DOWNRIGHT AWESOME READING! June 12 2002
Format:Paperback
Very very well written and enjoyable. A must read for sure again and again. The Poe angle added a very wicked touch. All I can say is, that the crow(the man),and crow(the bird)make a awesome tagteam! Revenge is a dish best served cold,and man its north pole SUB-ZERO COLD! I knew I would love this book,once I saw the bird do more that just flap,fly and caw.It didn't take long for the action,and the tone to be set. The characters are well defined,and storyline has a few twists and turns,which only enhances this tale even more! This book would have made a great movie,not crap like the city of angles is. READ THIS BOOK! I qouth ; )

3.0 out of 5 stars The worst Crow book i've ever read Sept. 30 2001
By Elise
Format:Paperback
I have read many crow theme books and i didn't enjoy this one. Maybe i just have high standards...but it was way too predictable, and could of been written alot better. Consider the potential! Also way too clichy

4.0 out of 5 stars Poe-fectly Poe-etic Nov. 7 2000
Format:Paperback
Bischoff succesfully captures the dark, forbidding atmosphere of Charm City in his Crow novel. Who better to become the undead avenger than a specialist in the literature adored by the solar-deprived, irony deficient goth ssubculture? The plot moves along with barely enough time for the reader to catch his breath, and the quite successful skewering of academia (Johns Hopkins is the Worlds Best Univrsity, just ask them.) and the gloom and doom obsessed goth subculture are quite pleasing. Waht could have made it better? Well, Blessing before the incident is somewhat wooden, and I would love to know why his nemesis is obsessed with the Gothique group. Overall, the best Crow novel.
