Thinking in Pieces, Urban Fantasy Magazine, December 2015
When the woman built her mind from crows, she chose them for their cleverness, their puzzle-solving. She had not expected to find them so stubborn, so resistant to thinking together. But she’d had few good choices with no mind of her own, she supposed.
There is also Mistaken Captives, a companion novella to DEATH-TOUCHED, set simultaneously with the beginning of the novel.
