Giant angels with metal wings and visible song. A blind demon restored from the pit of darkness. And a girl who has never felt more broken.

Brielle sees the world as it really is: a place where the Celestial exists side by side with human reality. But in the aftermath of a supernatural showdown, her life begins to crumble. Her boyfriend, Jake, is keeping something from her—something important. Her overprotective father has started drinking again. He’s dating a much younger woman who makes Brielle’s skin crawl, and he’s downright hostile toward Jake. Haunting nightmares keep Brielle from sleeping, and flashes of Celestial vision keep her off kilter.

What she doesn’t know is that she’s been targeted. The Prince of Darkness himself has heard of the boy with healing in his hands and of the girl who sees through the Terrestrial Veil. When he plucks the blind demon, Damien, from the fiery chasm and sends him back to Earth with new eyes, the stage is set for a cataclysmic battle of good versus evil.

Then Brielle unearths the truth about her mother’s death and she must question everything she ever thought was true.

Brielle has no choice. She knows evil forces are converging and will soon rain their terror down upon the town of Stratus. She must master the weapons she’s been given. She must fight.

But can she fly with broken wings?

Super excited to dive right back into this series, I’m anxious to see what happens next.

Plot. I really liked how this plot weaved between whats happening in the world and whats happening in the spirit world. The author did a great job in creating tension on both world and leading the plots so that the match perfectly together.

Faith. One thing about faith-based books that tend to lead me astray is the fact that the character is always perfect. Not with this story. Cause in real life no one is perfect. Even a christian. So to see these characters having flaws and making mistakes, more importantly learning from them. I like that in times of need and confusion they face problems together.

Love. Their love has grown complicated. Their are many factors holding them apart. Still, I believe that this is just a test for them. I’m hoping and crossing my fingers that everything will work out in the next book.

An endearing tale that delivers a great story, Broken Wings is nicely polished. Combing faith with an epic fantasy, Broken Wings is genuinely compelling.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!
