The novel is the seventh creation of admiring story writer Magnus Mills, a person who has an appreciative personality with the admiring portrayals in the form of inspirational stories. He is the man who can convince the readers to its writings. The novel “A cruel bird came to the nest and looked In” is a story of a fantasy Royal land. The land which is similar to our land in which we live. That was falling into pieces and waiting for the young emperor who was abroad for the purpose of studying and used to communicate through the penny post.
The people of the Royal land were all waiting for the young emperor, to make state run and work. Because there was an enemy who building their railway towards the Royal land to attack and get them under their regime. The story is an inspirational write up by explaining the history of past 250 years, the way things used to happen there. But the story line is not serious neither boring. Everything is presented in a great comical way. The economic activities, the way people used to manage their livings while the leader emperor is away to pass the commands for the execution.
