It is the Black Dawn, a time of environmental apocalypse, the earth wracked and dying.
It is the Bright Day, a time long generations hence, when a peace has descended across the world.
In each era, a child shall be chosen. Their task is to find a dark messiah known only as the Crowman. But is he our saviour – or the final incarnation of evil?
“Black Feathers is an enthralling novel written with gnarly, knotty elegance,
every page gravid with menace. Further proof, were it needed, that
Joseph D’Lacey is one of our great, dark hopes for the future of UK horror.”
Conrad Williams, author of One, London Revenant,
The Unblemished and Loss of Separation
“Joseph D’Lacey has written a contemporary fairy-tale;
here, in Black Feathers, you’ll get everything you want to find
in a work of dark, apocalyptic fiction: menace and magic
aplenty, and characters otherworldly, scary and fantastic.
A very special story, one to savour.”
Paul Meloy, author of Islington Crocodiles
