Only child Ben moves to the country with his mum and befriends a crow for company. However, when a local boy sees this and jeers at him mercilessly, Ben very soon becomes a laughing stock. The bullies want him to hurt the thing he loves the most. But none of them have reckoned on the power of Crow Law!

In the same style as the Shades 2.0 series, this book tells a fast-paced story but is much shorter than the Shades, allowing for less-able readers to still experience the gripping story but with much simpler language and a larger font. The excitement of the Shades series is still there in these shortened versions of the dramatic, enticing stories.
