The crows followed Talon around everywhere. When he went to work with his uncle for the summer, the birds followed. He recognized the same straggly-tailed old crow that had followed him around since junior high.

Iris Yorita lived in his old neighborhood in Modesto. Snakes were drawn to her as the big, black birds were drawn to him. She called their ability an AFFINITY. Claimed it was a gift from God, and they should use it to help people. Talon thought she was out of her mind. How could a bunch of mangy crows or slimy snakes help anyone?

When a thief targeted the people in his uncle's neighborhood, all fingers pointed at the new kid, Talon. He decided it was time to put this strange ability to the test. Find out who was robbing their neighbors and clear his name. As Talon worked on communicating with his crows the thievery heated up. Something more sinister than robbery was going on, and it would take Talon and his new-found friends to discover what really was going on in this up-scale neighborhood.
