Wilted WingsWilted Wings

Power, greed, and envy fill Damon and Ilisha’s world. Their hope of settling into a life of peace and family remains out of grasp. Damon is kidnapped and forced to stand trial for the death of his father while a breed of hybrids designed to destroy all angels is set loose. With no choice but to leave her earthly mother and baby behind, Ilisha struggles in a world of high politics and family feuds. She must become an ultimate warrior to save her husband and both the worlds she loves.


Wilted Wings is the second book in the series and I recommend reading Broken Butterflies (book one) prior to reading this one. In book two, the main characters are angels living here on earth raising the human baby of Ilisha’s late friend and her husband.
This book tells the story of how Ilisha and Damon must return to their kingdoms in order to fight the demons infiltrating earth. The author does a fabulous job of describing the different kingdoms. I really felt like I could “see” them. We are also introduced to new characters there. It was fun to meet the angels there and find out how they figured into Ilisha’s and Damon’s story. I loved the pace of this book; there is lots of action as they battle and discover who is behind what is happening on earth.
Back on earth, the action continues. The demons are wreaking havoc here and I enjoyed how the author shows humankind reacting to the chaos. I don’t want to give anything away, but the author does tie most everything up nicely but I could see that this may not be the end of their story.
I liked how the author has developed Ilisha into a strong character, who is brave and smart. She knows what must be done and isn’t afraid to do it. In the first book, she is just discovering who she is; in this one she really comes into her own.
Now, on to the steamy scenes. These are plentiful and descriptive. If you like reading hot sex scenes, you won’t be disappointed!
I would recommend a Merlot with this book…strong like Ilisha!


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
