Overview

The most damaged heart can fly with the right pair of wings.

Madelyn's life is far from fairytale perfect. She is second in line for the throne of a corrupt, brutal monarchy. Or at least she was until her dark guardian sacrificed his life to hide her safely in a realm of infinite possibilities.

For years she's lived among a colony of escaped slaves as her guardian's widow. Even in this simple life, though, nothing is as it seems. Her hero kept a secret-a younger brother named Clayton Delaney. Warrior, winged demon...and the man who now wants to lay claim to her heart.

No longer cast in his brother's shadow, Clayton meets all obstacles head on, including one named Maddie. His infatuation with her reaches the breaking point when she undergoes a royal rite of passage, going into heat and pushing them both over the edge.

Just as Maddie learns that some risks are worth taking, she discovers that her guardian may be alive. And she's forced to make a choice between the man she'd thought she loved, and the demon willing to lend her his wings.

Warning: This book contains virginal angst, a hero who's too nice for his own good, wings, claws, and convenient use of glamour. It contains heartbreaking loss, conversation with a woodland creature, and sweet, sweet demon loving.

I was a little disappointed in this book. I had heard this author was exceptional but I didnt feel like thee characters were really developed. And while the characters and setting was unique I didnt feel like there was anything overly special or compelling about the underlying story.

This story was a pleasant surprise. There's no cheat sheet or anything for the world, so you just learn as you go, which is very easy given that the book largely takes place in a human setting, just centers on the demonic characters. I hadn't read the blurb before jumping right in, so I didn't know quite what to expect and once I started reading, I started formulating my theories on where it was going. Totally went in a different direction, as right about the time I'm getting into a groove with understanding the world Madelyn lives in, she leaves it! Right as I think I know how the romance will bloom, her guardian abruptly dies (supposedly). Following his death, Madelyn is heartbroken and living in a fog, leaving her sister Emma to be the strong one and take care of her and everything else. Once the big secret (among others) of Clayton's existence is blown, Emma and Madelyn lock horns because Maddie suddenly no longer needs Emma to protect her so much. This only culminates in even more fun towards the end, leaving me twitchy to read the next book (Emma's story). Clayton and Madelyn are really cute together, and the tension they muddle through is both funny and just plain hot. Every close call that gets interrupted left me laughing a little and saying "aww, come on!". Theirs is a journey of awkward confessions, sweet innocence, and steamy exploration.

I would put this at the top of my reading list for paranormal romance. I was so surprised by this author I had not heard of before. I've grown bohred of the same old stories, just change the names and the way they become a vampire. Don't get me wrong I have a few top series I wouldn't do without, but the market has gotten flooded with unoriginal and uninspiring books. This book was fresh and unique. The writing style is of the highest quality. If you like paranormal fiction, this is a must read.
