'Quite simply, brilliant. A mind-bending mix of history, fantasy and folklore, it's a wild bronco of a read that'll leave you breathless for more' Rachel Caine on Wake of Vultures

The conclusion to Lila Bowen's widely-acclaimed dark fantasy series, which New York Times bestselling author Kevin Hearne described as 'thrilling, delightfully written, and important.'

Rhett Walker is looking for peace, the memories of all he's lost haunting his dreams. And now the Shadow tugs him West, back to where his journey began.

With the lawless Rangers on his heels and monster attacks surging, Rhett is surrounded on all sides. This time it's not all about horses and land. This time, it feels personal. Because the newest monster on the horizon just may be wearing the face of someone from Rhett's past.

To save the Durango territory, Rhett must accept the Shadow's call and fulfill his destiny.

Treason of Hawks is the gripping final instalment of the acclaimed Shadow series, starring a hero who has been hailed as 'one of the iconic characters of this generation'.

'I don't care what else you've seen in the bookstore today. Read this one' Kevin Hearne

Wake of Vultures is a ferocious, fascinating take on the magical Old West - creatively and unsentimentally grim, yet rich with hope and heart -- Cherie Priest, author of BONESHAKER on WAKE OF VULTURES
Conspiracy of Ravens, by Lila Bowen, gives me exactly what I want in a sequel. Everything I loved in book one of the series, Wake of Vultures, gets a little bit richer, a little bit deeper, and a little more complex: more characters, more monsters, a wider world, darker magic . . . pick up Bowen's Shadow books. I think you'll be mighty pleased you did. -- FANTASY FACTION on CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS

There are fast-paced thrill-a-minute novels where the plot twists and wild action just. Keep. Coming. And then there are introspective books about someone searching for their identity and untangling deep issues of race, sexuality and gender. And then occasionally, you get a book that manages to do both. Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen is one such book, and it's a goddamn keeper -- IO9 on WAKE OF VULTURES
Part Western, part supernatural mystery, this stands out for its tough lead Nettie Lonesome, an outsider treated like a slave at home, until she fights off an attacker, with violent and unexpected consequences. This is an important book that features a trans heroine in a sometimes diversity-lacking genre -- INDEPENDENT ('10 Best Fantasy Novels of 2015') on WAKE OF VULTURES

Nettie Lonesome is a complex, tough, all-around wonderful protagonist. And Lila Bowen is equally wonderful for bringing us Nettie's story, set in a magical old west full of harpies and monster-hunters and stolen children and more. I look forward to more of Nettie's journey -- Jim C. Hines on WAKE OF VULTURES
A must-have for all modern fantasy collections and a great choice for adults and teens -- Library Journal on WAKE OF VULTURES
