Overview

Former Agent of death Madeline Black may have been stripped of her wings—but she hasn’t lost her purpose…

When Maddy finally killed her father, Azazel, she thought his depraved experiment died with him. But now Chicago has been infested with vampires immune to the effects of the sun, and the bloodbath is worse than she could have ever imagined. While the Agency refuses to interfere with other supernatural courts, Maddy is determined to do everything within her power to save her city—wings or no wings.

But when the leader of the vampires requests that she turn herself in or risk more deaths, Maddy becomes a target for the very people she’s trying to save. Left with no other choice, she turns to Lucifer, the one creature who has the power to help her. But her grandfather’s aid has always come at a price…

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
    *ARC provided by the Author in exchange for an honest review

    I have a handful of favorite Urban Fantasy series. BLACK WINGS is definitely one of them, and while some series start to get a little stale
    by about book #5, this series just gets better, and better, and BETTER with each book that Christina releases!

    My first words after finishing Black City were "Whoa! Just whoa! Even darker, just as gripping, action packed as usual, and dare I say...
    SEXY! :) I love this series so very much!"

    Christina is definitely embracing her dark side, and I am positively giddy about it. LOL. 

    Following the mystifying events in Black Lament, there were countless ways that Christina could have gone with Black City. Out of all of
    the possibilities that I had floating around in my head though, nothing was as good as the way it actually turned out. The intensity of the
    action, the depth of the story, the emotion embedded in the dialogue and the choices that were made were wonderful and I absolutely
    couldn't get enough. And while BLACK WINGS is an Urban Fantasy series, this installment was really sexy and surprising! There were
    characters I had thought never to like that I found myself letting in and embracing, and there are definitely new villains to hate as well. 

    I know that's all very vague and you probably hate me right now, but I refuse to ruin the goodness for you and can only urge you to start
     this series as soon as you are able and get lost in the world of Maddy and company like I and so many others have. We'll welcome you
    to our lovefest and fanclub when you do. :)

    LITERAL ADDICTION gives Black City a well deserved 5 Skulls and hopes that this series keeps going. It will be a very, very sad day for
    me when there are no more BLACK WINGS releases to look forward to. I can only hope that Christina has something up her sleeve for
    us and a new series when that day comes.
