Had high hopes for this book, the third in the Children of Time series as I really liked the first two. This is a good book, but nowhere near as good as the first two.

From now on, whenever I see corvids, I will definitely look at them differently. The ambiguity about their sentience was a nice touch, and the discourse about what’s sentient and what is not towards the end of the book is a great summary of this problem. Are we humans just very sophisticated computing machines?
