"A pleasingly original contribution to the paranormal-romance genre." --Kirkus Reviews

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there's more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can't imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece--and he's not human.

What's more, she knows something most don't. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that's only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

I have to be honest ~ I picked up this book because there was a review on it that said it was a good book to read and I forgot about the review. I had it lying around and looked at the cover and really liked it. I have a fascination with black birds - ravens, crows and grackles. I couldn't put the book down. It was so fascinating - I like how Angie watches Reece with binoculars. I like how there is this chemistry with them and yet the book has a lot of darkness and paranormal events to it.

This book is just "Twilight". It could have been good, but it's "Twilight" right down to the huge adopted family who all have the same eye colour. I'm not even halfway through and I don't want to read anymore, but I have to keep going for the slight chance that it will be a little different from "Twilight" (not going to happen but I have to hope; it's the only book I have to read right now).
Edit: Okay, so it's not totally "Twilight", thank goodness. Getting through all the "Twilight" stuff was worth it for the ending (though, now that I think about it, that was a little "Twilight" too). The bad guy actually has a motivation and there are real stakes and the protagonist isn't a total Mary Sue or a self-sacrificing idiot. Except the more that I think about it the more it seems like "Twilight" again.
"Black Bird of the Gallows" is "Twilight" with a better history and mythology.
