I am completely in love with this series. Or at least, this book, as this is all I have read of the series so far. Black Wings has a witty, independent and sassy heroine who spends most of the time running around kicking butt and yelling at people when they make her mad. Definitely my kind of woman. The fact that she has supernatural powers and the world’s most adorable side-kick just makes this book so, so, so much better.

I always enjoy books that leave you guessing – wondering what’s going on, what happened in the past, who is aligned with, or related to whom. Maddie’s parentage, and the death of her mother are two major points that drive the story, but the story behind these aspects of her life are slowly trickled out throughout the novel. Likewise, the truth about Gabriel and her enemies is slowly told to the world.

As someone who has issues with authority, I can definitely sympathise with Maddie’s inability to just do as she is commanded. Although this constantly gets her into trouble throughout the story (telling people no in no uncertain terms isn’t necessarily the best way in which to endear oneself to your superiors), it also helps her to find her own path and place within life.
