Killian Delaney sometimes feels like her entire life has been one long fight to survive. She doesn’t regret the decisions she’s made—not even the one that landed her in prison for nine years. But when her teenage niece is taken by an old and deadly enemy, Killian is forced to confront her own secretive—and sometimes violent—past. She’ll do whatever it takes to bring her niece home, even if it means returning to prison for murder, because this time the life she’s fighting for isn’t her own.
I absolutely love the cover for Seven Crows. Aside from being completely gorgeous, it sums up the feel of the book—and the character of Killian—so well. There’s such a sense of isolation and desolation in the image, which Killian feels throughout the story. She very much feels alone and lost, even though she’s surrounded by people who want to help her.
Aside from the obvious imagery of the seven crows flying across the cover, the broken window frames Killian as a target, putting her in the crosshairs. It’s chilling and it’s awesome. But then, you see her smoking gun, and you’re not quite sure if you should be afraid for her, or *of* her. And that is the main gist of the character.

She quickly discovers her niece was involved with a notorious biker gang who are engaged in everything from drugs to human trafficking. And to make it worse, the man who sent Killian to jail, the one she nearly beat to death, is at the center of it all.
To save her niece, she’ll need a plan. A smart, quick, and efficient one. Because she’s going to do it right this time. She’ll burn them to the ground.
