Best. Angel. Novel. EVER!

Oh my gosh! You have most definitely got to try this book! It's amazingly written and this author knows what her readers like! Reading this book was like watching an incredible new movie. Better than watching a movie, in fact. Each page turn brings humor, passionate characters (and some characters that aren't so passionate, for sure!) and leaves the reader with a satisfaction beyond words. Five Books does not come close to doing this book justice. From werewolves to angels, Ryan knows what her readers want and just how to deliver it! I am highly anxious to read more of Dante's Circle books, especially Ambrose's story! Now that's another hawt angel for another review.......oh and did I mention I adore the cover on this book? (Why are you still sitting there? Go grab a copy now! :)

Dust of My Wings had a straightforward plot: Angels live among unsuspecting humans, and their existence must remain a secret at all costs. When a Lily, a lab tech and a human poses a threat to that secret, the angel warrior Shade is dispatched to make sure she can't go through with her job. But Shade falls in love with her. Their happiness is short-lived when a traitor amongst the angels threatens the peace but also targets Lily. However, Lily has a secret of her own.

This was my first book by Ms Ryan, and I found many aspects of it very enjoyable. The plot may not have been anything new, but it was definitely engaging, and all the different characters pulled me in and made me care for them. Strangely enough, I found myself liking the secondary characters, Faith and Ambrose, more than the main characters. Not that Shade wasn't a great hero, but I loved the mysterious leader of the warrior angels.

Shade and Lily definitely had chemistry, and the plot made the pacing of their attraction believable, as did their unique connection. The love scenes were hot, especially my particular favorite - up in the air. I am just not a fan of heroines who are very insecure, or who get melodramatic that they inadvertently put themselves in grave danger. When she finds out the truth about Shade's reason for being on earth in the first place, she quickly draws the right conclusion, but allows her anger to overrule logic. I did like the fact that she was destined to be different, but I still giggle over the name of her particular species. There were a few grammar mistakes, but overall the story was engaging and made for a fun read. I look forward to the next book and Ambrose's story.

    Shade may be an angel, but only by physical definition – y

    Shade may be an angel, but only by physical definition – you know, the wings and all – but he doesn’t live in Heaven, and he definitely doesn’t behave like an “angel”. He’s got his own past to overcome from the Angelic Wars, and it makes for a somewhat tortured hero, though not as much as Ambrose; I’m looking forward to his story! Lily is a quirky heroine, making her pretty unique. For being a big bad warrior, Lily certainly seems to bring out the softer side of Shade.

    The villain was your typical power-hungry maniac thinking he can take over and reign supreme if only he can remove two warrior obstacles. He sometimes reminded me of a cartoon baddie up to dastardly deeds. I often half expected him to do the “muahahaha” laugh. Goofy, I know.

    The conflict, while believable, just felt a little on the weak side. I won’t complain though as it made for a fairly light-hearted read (not counting when Shade talks about what he and Ambrose lost in during the Angelic Wars, I about cried there). The best part about this book is actually the supernatural element. The concept of there being so many different types of creatures and the underlying promise that we’ll get to meet many more of them, makes for a fun, interesting story.

    Overall, the romance was sweet and sensual, the ending was satisfying on several levels, and it leaves you waiting happily for more to come. Dust of My Wings is a good start to a new series from Carrie Ann Ryan, and I look forward to more!

    Shade and Lily

    What a great beginning to another series by Carrie Ann Ryan. As a fan of her Redwood Pack, I was eager to read about her new venture into another paranormal realm.

    Shade is an Angel, a warrior angel who protects the supernatural world’s secret. He has a small problem, however, he keeps leaving dust which has fallen into the hands of Lily, a lab tech. He has to retrieve it before his secret is uncovered.

    Shade didn't expect to be so attracted to her, just as Lily can't help what she feels towards this tall, dark and handsome stranger. When Lily and her friends have an up-close call with Mother Nature, she may not be quite as normal as she thought.

    I loved Lily and her OCD (we find out later why she has those tendencies). Love that Shade finds that endearing. They have great chemistry and their passion sure has some interesting side-effects. Just remember these aren't your typical angels, wait until you read about these kick-ass sexy angels.

    We met a great supporting cast of characters that I'm sure we will get to hear about later and who knows what other paranormal entities we will meet...and I can't wait!

    Dust of My Wings, the first novel in the Dante's Circle series,

    Dust of My Wings, the first novel in the Dante's Circle series, brings together the world of the supernatural and that of humans. Shade, a warrior angel, with a broken past, is sent by the angel council to earth to stop a human woman from uncovering the secret of the supernatural world. Lily, a lab tech with only a close group of friends to call "family", has been tasked with analyzing an odd substance, when her world is suddenly thrown into turmoil. As the story unfolds, strange events occur, betrayal, murder, heartbreak and intrigue abound. Will love conquer all? Is Lily truly just human? Will Shade stop the humans from discovering that there is magic all around them?

    Carrie Ann Ryan has woven a tale of the supernatural that is spellbinding and one that I could not put down! Fabulous beginning to this series. I cannot wait for more.
