Synopsis

What happens when Darkness and Light collide?

Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise.
As her family’s sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm, and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered.

Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn’t even know who or what she is.

A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously, captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday… things will change.

***Kat – #NerdGirlParanormal’s  Review***
Since I love the paranormal genre I jumped at the chance to read this series.

If you like books that are about Angels, Fallen Angels, Demons and Nephilim then you will enjoy this book.

Some of the plot line felt a bit rushed, the way she was literally whisked away from the hospital after a major motor accident which resulted in the death of her parents, no police, no funeral, just whisked away by escorts…but all in all I enjoyed it, it does end in a cliff hanger , but book 2 and 3 and a prequel are also out so there will be reviews coming for those books on the blog soon.

The main character is Emma Wise who is whisked away to an Aunt whom she didn’t know existed… While waiting for someone to pick her up at the hospital, Emma gets a strange feeling which grows and suddenly she sees the reason for this “euphoric” feeling  One of the ‘escorts’ Kade.
When she touches him, she feels an intense feeling… Electricity, and this attraction is mutual, the other escort, Malachi is a bit more standoffish. But good looking non the less.

She is whisked off to Alaska by these two escorts, and then things start to get a bit weird for Emma, strange creatures trying to kill her, her escorts are super strong and fast…

“Hidden Wings” is a bit predictable in places, and similar in plot to others out there, but if you like angel and demon stories that are easy to follow then you will like this book.

I have just started reading #0.5 Decent and it’s starting to look promising I’m only 9% through but it’s a novella which is about key players in this series, Lucifer, Lucien, Samuel, Alaine… These are all featured in ‘Hidden Wings’ and hopefully reading this will help fill in the blanks that I felt were left after completing book 1.

By the end of the book, it was starting to get interesting, Emma had stopped being a typical damsel in distress, so I look forward to reading more in this series to see what actually develops.

This book would have gotten more points if maybe the characters were developed more, it was just a bit too shallow, the book has a good amount of humour, one liners and it’s suitable for teens to read… No sex scenes.

All in all this book was an easy light read, so it gets 3 stars from me, and I look forward to seeing the characters and story develop.
