Review: Black Wings - by Megan Hart
Briella is a bright child, some would say gifted. That being said, she does have trouble making friends,
"Along with a loathing for personal hygiene and lack of friends, Briella had taken up lying. Much like her father, she wasn't really very good at it."
Briella's father, Tommy, was making an effort to be in her life, even though her mother, Marian had left him years ago and was now in a relationship with her step-father, Dean.
As if that's not complicated enough, one-day Briella befriends a raven on the way home from school. She names the bird Onyx, and this is when the wheels start to come off and things get more than a little strange.
Black Wings is a wonderful, real-life-like story with a touch of the fantastical. Wildly original. The challenging relationship between Briella and her mother was spot on, very believable. Black Wings is a story that is simple, yet elegant. Simultaneously charming and dangerous. Intriguing and entertaining, right up to the unbelievable ending. I loved it.
Published by Flame Tree Press, Black Wings is available in hardcover, paperback, e-book and audio formats.
From the author's bio - Megan Hart has written in almost every genre of romantic fiction, including historical, contemporary, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, futuristic, fantasy and perhaps most notably, erotic. She also writes non-erotic fantasy and science fiction, as well as continuing to occasionally dabble in horror. Black Wings is one of the later.
