Review: Black Bird of the Gallows (#1) by Meg Kassel

Summary from Goodreads:

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.


I have had the Black Bird of the Gallows series on my TBR for a few years now and I finally picked it up. I managed to fly through the first novel, and I am already almost half way through the sequel.

I’ve noticed that I am reading less and less of YA. I still pick them up but I am less motivated to request or even buy a YA title. I even put down a YA title after 100 pages because I could not connect with it. However, it is still nice to take a break from high Fantasy or intense Thrillers and pick up a quick YA novel.

I’ve wanted to read Black Bird of the Gallows even since I saw the cover all the way back in 2016 before it was released. It was just what I needed, it had a unique plot, a great main characters, a cute romance, and I flew through it!

I recommend checking out this very underappreciated YA paranormal series. It was a great read.


4 Stars Out of 5 Stars.


I'm person who loves reviewing, reading, talking about, and just being around books!
