Masterfully crafted by Cleve Sylcox ‘Blood Crow: Love and War A Bloody Affair’ tells the story of a downtrodden and ravaged heroine whose only weapon against a waging war is an enigmatic blessing from an old native American woman. With her emotions spiraling out of control and human greed poisoning the waters, readers are invited to learn just how powerful anger can be when love and death become too close for comfort.
St. Charles, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- While most writers test the literary waters with their first book, few succeed to become prolific. But Cleve Sylcox has managed in just a few short years what most couldn't dream of in their entire career. From weaving together intricate original full-length novels to answering many calls for the submission of his short stories to anthologies, Sylcox has built a solid reputation for gripping fiction.
His latest release, 'Blood Crow: Love and War A Bloody Affair', is no different. Readers should expect a cocktail of romance, war, action and even a hint of the paranormal.
As Confederate and Union forces clash in and around the Missouri community of St. Charles, Constance McAdams fights a war of her own. Her mind has been fractured, her heart ravaged, and her soul nearly torn from its very existence.
Her husband, Gavin, threatened by a corrupt sheriff and judge, is the binding that holds her together. With a blessing from an old Choctaw woman as her only weapon, she spirals into a maddening world of crows and spirits as she fights the forces pressing in around her.
"What makes the narrative so unique is its ability to fuse together emotions that literature usually keeps worlds apart," explains the author. "The main themes are the emergence of evil and its influence on true love, as well as the never-ending battle between greed and the pursuit of good."
Continuing, "Hate and bigotry start rapidly closing in around Constance, proving that nothing is deeper than a woman's heart in times of adversity. I don't want to give too much of the story away so, if you want to find out what actually happens, you'll need to buy the book!"
Sylcox has no plans to curtail his busy writing schedule.
"I'm not slowing down yet. I've got plenty of requests on the table for further short story submissions, which is where my real passion lays. I've been writing since I was a kid yet I'm always able to further perfect my craft. Keep an eye on my Amazon profile, because plenty more books will be hitting the shelves very soon," he adds.
