Death can take on many guises: owl, eagle, groundling, human, plague, storm, and now, Crow. Kyp and his bedraggled band have come through so much, but now they face a new enemy: their own kind. They are being hunted down, methodically and relentlessly. Kuper has drawn hundreds of thousands with his vengeful dogma. They call themselves the Collection, and they are very, very angry. Kyp's wits and his extraordinary flying skills have never been more tested. He faces a storm of epic proportions, and the fate of each and every Crow hangs in the balance. There is nowhere to hide. The Collection is coming.

Clem was born in Calgary, Alberta, and lives there with his wife and two daughters.
'Martini writes spare but muscular prose which vividly conjures landscape, character and situation. He knows how to build narrative and create suspense and maintain reader interest until the very last sentence ... there is every intimation that the future volumes may be even more enthralling. An impressive debut' Daily Express 'The Mob... is an epic tale of bravery, betrayal, rivalry and foolhardiness. It is a fully conceived and convincing world.' Times Educational Supplement 'The archaic tone gives Martini's prose weight, while still making it accessible enough for children' Big Issue '"a Canadian Watership Down for Crows" may explain it, but it doesn't do this wonderfully moving book justice ... Fast paced and totally absorbing' Philip Ardagh, Guardian Children's Supplement
