The Black Feathers Book Trailer

9th April 2013

It's been a long time since I've featured a book trailer, because it's been a long time since one has caught my eye in the way that this one has. I love the moody music, and I really want to know what those birds are up to. The only thing that I think would improve this is some narration, perhaps by Morgan Freeman.

So what's it all about?

From the blurb:

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?

So it's a post-apocalyptic story. After Pure and The Return Man and The Farm, these are certainly in fashion. The trailer is slick and creepy; if the book matches up to that then it's one to add to the TBR pile.
