The Moon King Trivia #2 : The bird thing

#2 : So, what is the deal with you and birds?

Q:  The Moon King features some quite brutal white crows. I’ve read some of your other stories and birds crop up fairly regularly. Do you have some sort of obsession?crow solo

A:  Guilty as charged. I was a bit of a junior twitcher when I was younger, and I’ve never lost that fascination. There’s something about birds that is both beautiful and really quite alien. And when you add the intelligence that corvids have they can be really menacing too. I’m pretty pleased with the way the white crows work as The Lunane’s protectors. I think there’s a nice balance between beautiful aloofness and brutal menace.
