    Another thrilling mix of real and surreal. Mysteries, secrets, and surprises abound in this epic tale—the eighth in the series—set in the old fishing port of Liverpool, Nova Scotia. The interactions of several families, their multigenerational allegiances and conflicts, layer Eight Crows for a Wish with depth that can be enjoyed by newcomers to the series and long-time fans alike.

    A stranger is found sprawled on rocks at the ocean’s edge. He’s utterly lost—but senses that the crows can lead him home. I only wish I'd started Oickle's mysterious series sooner.

    An intricate tale set in a small coastal town where the natural world collides head on with mysteries of the supernatural. The setting amplifies tension and betrayal between siblings. But will the threat of mutual danger force them to overcome their bitterness? Oickle spins this story of hope in the face of evil in a way that leaves you wondering how much is reality and how much is fiction, and he does it remarkably well.

    lifelong storyteller  

    A bold leap into the town of Liverpool’s future and the mysterious role the crows continue to play. The magic, the mystery, the I-feel-like-I-know-them characters, and the shocking conclusion make this a must read for Oickle fans, new and old.
