Call of the Sparrows
 

In a tiny mountain village beyond the reach of clouds, gossip is the currency and tradition is everything.
Little Sparrow arrives to find a world driven by superstition and dark histories. To survive crooked peddlers, invisible spirits and a mother-in-law with a hidden agenda, she’s got to learn to fly with the flock.
But the more Little Sparrow grasps her role in the game, the more everything tips out of balance into a terrifying new direction.
Caught in the middle of an uprising where tradition is being burnt to the ground, Little Sparrow is forced to make a choice that will change the future of the village forever.
