A sinister threat. A city in danger. A boy with the power to command the crows. Batman meets The Graveyard Book in this epic new series.
For years, Caw has lived on the streets of Blackstone with only three crows for company. Caw has never known why he can understand the crows. But when he rescues a girl named Lydia from a vicious attack, he discovers others like him — ferals who can speak to certain animals. And some of them are dangerous.
Now, the most sinister feral of all — the Spinning Man — is on the move again. To save his city, Caw must quickly master abilities he never knew he had... and prepare to defeat a darkness he never could have imagined.
Rights to Ferals have sold in 26 languages, and film rights have been optioned by FOX. The first book in this dark, action-packed trilogy is set to thrill readers with its fierce animal powers, fantastically creepy atmosphere, and high-octane adventure.
Little is known of the mysterious Jacob Grey. He is said to live in a big city in the USA, where he wanders the streets at night dreaming up his dark and twisted tales. He has a deep love of animals and even talks to crows himself... although no one knows if he understands their replies.
