Following the cliffhanger ending of Phoenix, Natalie finds herself separated from Ash and unexpectedly reunited with her parents, including the father she thought was dead. But she can only think of Ash. She hasn't heard a word of him since she and Elijah were brought to the underground headquarters of the Sentry Rebellion. But she vows to find him.

Ash, meanwhile is back in Black City; it's the perfect place to hide from the Sentry government. But not for long. He won't give up on Natalie or bringing an end to the terrible reign of Purian Rose.

A pulse-racing end to an exciting series.

Finally reading this conclusion, I can now say how much I really enjoyed the series. The ending is exciting yet full of revelations for the reader to enjoy.

Plot: So if you have not read this series give it a go. It’s exciting with a lot of drama and action pack with on the run fights to keep your heart racing. The plot picked up right where the last book left off, introducing the reader to the past. I love it when the reader gets more information from the past. It’s like a history lesson on why certain things happen. And let me tell you that Wings offers some pretty scary skeletons. With each new chapter to the past, a new door of why’s are answered. And it of course only left me wanting more.

Relationships: There are some parts of the story that give the reader lots to look forward too. There are so many secrets that are exposed, the reasons behind people’s actions and just ahhh. I don’t want to give it all away but I can tell you that this story is so exciting. Every person is connected somehow to the past and all because of a relationship.

Ending: The ending is satisfying. I really like how the author brought the story together. She did a great job bringing in the past piece by piece as well as the present to help the readers understand the end. There are some sacrifices that had my heart on my throat but OMG its awesome.

Overall, this series is pretty good. It had my attention the whole way through the story and paved a way for a great reading adventure. Wings is a fantastic ending.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I have the first in this series on my shelves I should give it a try especially now knowing the sequel is awesome, too. I love how action packed it sounds, and the mystery seems to be unraveling at the perfect pace too! Great review, Savvy!

  3. I love a good ending. So if the ending book is this good, I so need to read the rest. Great review!

    I enjoyed the first book but pretty but never found a chance to read this the second one I guess. It sounds like I should try to finish the series at some point!

    I have been back and forth on whether to read this series or not. I do love action packed stories, and this sounds like it’s got plenty of action. I’m glad to hear that the series as a whole is great. I should give it a try.
