The writing techniques utilised throughout this short story were nothing short of phenomenal. And that doesn’t even begin to describe the storyline and phenomenal characters that are splashed across the pages with a brilliant vividity. Although I haven’t (yet) had the privilege of reading the rest of the series, this short provided a great gateway into the series and the very sassy character of Maddy.
This was a great sequel to Black Wings – it had the same wit and humour, Maddy’s same ability to stumble unwittingly into problem after problem, and a gorgeous cast that you couldn’t help but feel attached to. Maddy’s clumsiness, and talent for putting her foot in her mouth have turned her into one of the most relatable heroines I have read recently. I’m constantly tripping over my own feet and getting confused about what I’m supposed to be doing in life – much like Maddy.
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.
