Book - 2017
Rate this:
Dar Oakley--the first Crow in all of Crow history with a name of his own--was born two thousand years ago. He tells the story of his impossible lives and deaths to a man who has learned his language in this novel which unravels like a fireside fable. In Ka we see how young Dar Oakley went down into the human underworld long before Julius Caesar came into the Celtic lands, and there got hold of the immortality meant for humans; how he sailed West to America with the Irish monks searching for the Paradise of the Saints; how again and again he went down into the lands of the dead and returned. All these beings inhabit Ka, the realm of Crows, and dwell also in Ymr, the realm where--as Dar Oakley learns--what humans think is so, really is so, even though we could have so much more.
