Reece Fernandez didn’t come to this town to finish high school. He hadn’t planned to stay. Changed against his will into a harbinger of death many years before, Reece has only known a nomadic existence, chasing disasters where mass death occurs and feeding on the energy.

Reece is desperate to protect Angie from an impending natural disaster that will decimate her town, and from a sinister creature who sees her as the key to breaking his own tortured curse.

If you've read Black Birds of the Gallows, this short story is basically the beginning of that book told from Reece's point of view. I love this world so I found it interesting.

Cleaner of the Bones is a novella set at the same time as Black Bird of the Gallows, but instead of Angie’s perspective, we get Reece’s. This is a few scenes from the first book...

Cleaner of Bones was a freebie for signing up to the author's newsletter. It's written from Reece's point of view and compliments Black Birds of the Gallows. It's a short story which would best fit straight after you have read Black Birds of Gallows. It explains what the Black bird life is like a... ...more

So glad we got a prequel!!!

Reece is such a great character and this little edition was just perfect.
I am a little sad about how short it was. And it kept making me wish that all of Black Bird of the Gallows had been told from Reece's perspective. Or in alternating perspectives like Keeper of the Bees.
