A bird of happiness, or fowl fortune? Feathers black, all lives consumed! This is the tale of a young, neglected girl who dies and is resurrected as the ominous Black Bird.

Destroy the kingdom in a storm of bullets! What fate awaits this girl-turned-bird? Will you, the Black Bird, destroy the world? Has this lively, fun-filled kingdom already led itself down the path of destruction?
