This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. "A Fierce & Driven Paranormal Fantasy Read!" - JB Richards Travel through the Great Shield, and discover the world of the Children of Corvus. Protected by the Great Shield, the tribe lives united in their love and reverence for Corvus, the god of beasts, who had once bestowed a sacred gift—the ability to transform into the divine entity known as Bestiae—upon his descendants. Now, vestiges of this diluted power trigger a curse the Sacred Order calls the blood madness. Corvus's Sacred Law proclaims that to guarantee the blood madness will not be passed to future generations, every male with the curse must be executed. The captivating contemporary fantasy trilogy about a tribe of shapeshifters, deep within the inhospitable forest of northern Maine USA, in an alternate dimension known as Blackwater Hills.

Editorial Reviews: Review of Blackbird (Book One) - A Stunning Novel That Serves As Model For Paranormal Fantasy Reads! L.E. Harrison leads us into the complex spiritual and metaphysical world of shifters and werewolves in her absorbing paranormal fantasy novel, "Blackbird (The Children of Corvus Book 1)". Written as part diary and part third-person account, mostly on the behalf of her main characters—Alena, Michael, and Jonathan, this tale of an ancient inter-dimensional shifter civilization living a hidden life, obscured by The Great Shield, in the backwoods of Maine is as astonishing as it is unique. Harrison's story not only stands out in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy venue, it should serve as a model to other writers of how to develop a truly believable paranormal society. Mystery... Action... Romance... And much, much more are neatly tucked within the pages of this can't-miss, astonishing tale. -J.B. Richards - IHIBRP I came to The Blackbirds with baggage. I read the word "shapeshifters" in the blurb and felt that I knew what to expect - buff, handsome man, often shirtless, and a modern, snarky heroine. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that genre, but, believe me, that is not what this book is. Instead L.E Harrison has set her sights much higher, and has much loftier ambitions. This trilogy is set in a world of the author's creating, a world that is - and is not - northern Maine. We are deep in the lore of a tribe of shapeshifters, in Blackwater Hills. In the first book of the series, we meet our lead characters, Alena, who we are immediately fond of, and Michael Singleton, a man stained with a curse. -ReadFreely (Shortlisted for The Best Book We've Read All Year) "The novel has a promising plot, the intertwining stories of the two central characters are intriguing and will keep readers turning pages.The writing is descriptive and evocative, particularly when delving into the thoughts of the main characters and when describing the strange happenings they observe around them. The ideas of shapeshifting and a fantasy realm parallel to our own certainly aren't new, but Harrison puts a new spin on these concepts creating an original story that fans of the genre will enjoy." -The Booklife Prize  "I'm a sucker for books that take landscapes I'm familiar with, and makes them something magical and interesting. Nothing really does that more than a set of shapeshifters hidden away somewhere in Maine. ...An interesting story and a good premise for a book. It's easy to enjoy, and I could tell that Harrison really visualized and had a clear picture of the story she was telling. Steeped in magic and lore, there is a lot here to love." -Bookwormblues
