Editorial Reviews


There are so many positive adjectives I can apply to this novel, I scarcely know where to begin. It's totally exciting. Dramatic. Vividly intense. Poignant. There are humorous passages, as well. Need I add that it's an utterly riveting, page-turning read? -- A Night's Dream of Books

"Fresh - That's my first thought. Falling a fresh take on the paranormal/genetic engineering world, with a refreshing voice.  Maya is imperfect, sarcastic and believable; and her plight is heart-poundingly realistic...As far as debut novels go, J Bennett has hit the ground running and I can't wait to watch her pick up speed and take off!" -- Reading Lark

"Quirky, and fun with a dash of heart-wrenching family drama...Overall, Falling is a good debut to a series filled with fun and interesting characters who I look forward to learning more about in future Girl With Broken Wings novels." -- Black Sun Reviews

Note: Spoilers ahead!

The past three years have been filled with such vampire craze it seems everyone has forgotten there are other types of mythological creatures. As a reviewer, this has been as bad as having a tooth pulled out! Thankfully, there are authors with refreshing ideas and new stories to dive into. Author J. Bennett is such an author. She offers a unique take on what has now become the new trend of angel-character driven stories.

But that does not mean the book is not without its flaws. Let me begin with what worked for the book. Two of the main characters, Tarren and Gabe who are brothers, were a perfect balance for each other. Gabe is funny, hopeful and has a good heart despite the tragedy he has endured. Tarren is tougher than steel, mysterious and can seem rather cold but readers discover there's more to him. I like the dynamic between the brothers and how close the two are. The author did a good job of showing how truly alone Tarren and Gabe have been in their battle and how that has shaped the way they interact with the world--or well, lack of interaction with the world.

I also love the unique take on angels. Maya is not exactly an angel; she is a genetically enhanced human. Basically, she goes from being a shy down to earth normal girl, to a hybrid who can't help but want to suck out people's lives by touch-literally. Based on the title of the book, I had expected for Maya to in fact have wings or encounter someone with wings at some point. I had expected a big war of angels over some kind of forbidden love but I was surprised to read a book about a girl who developed special gifts (against her will) instead.

Falling: Girl With Broken Wings is a decent debut novel for author J Bennett. The paranormal beings in this book are scientifically altered to become vampire-like creatures. These beings do not drink blood though, they live off of energy, the best energy coming from humans. When they feed, they kill their victim. The extra human strength and powers that these beings have makes them believe they are better than human and they call themselves angels. Brothers Tarren and Gabe are on a mission to kill off all angels and destroy the beings their scientist father (now dead) helped create. When the brothers discover their missing half sister about to be turned by the leader of the angels, they stop the transformation process. However, Maya will never be the same again.

There are both positives and negatives to Falling. On the positive side, the world building is creative and brings a unique twist to the paranormal world. Vampires that aren't really vampires and angels that aren't really angels give this story an intriguing paranormal element. The story itself was well developed and the plot was structured well. The three main characters, Maya, Tarren, and Gabe have a very interesting dynamic going on. They each have their own issues and beliefs and they are constantly clashing with each other. By the end of the story, I liked the characters more and I was curious about what would come next for Maya, Tarren, and Gabe.

I did have some issues with Fallen. The angel terminology is a bit misleading, the paranormal beings are more vampire-esque than angelic. Also, the language was a bit off-putting at times throughout the book. There were times when I felt the author was trying too hard for the language to be beautiful and creative.

Maya feels so lucky with her life, studying literature at college and living with her boyfriend Ryan, who she is madly in love with. One night while out on a stroll with her boyfriend, they are attacked by a strange man. Ryan is killed and Maya is kidnapped. Her life takes an even worse turn when the man injects her with a needle, causing her to change. Into what, she does not really know.
This book was not at all what I was expecting. I thought a little bit of supernatural mixed in with the typical teenish angst. But really this was an intense life changing horror story. I really liked the back story of the "angels", as an experiment gone wrong who can absorb the energy from the sun or you know, whatever. The basic plot of the story I found to be compelling, but at times it seemed like the story line took some random tangents, especially when we were lost in Maya's head. I also found myself horrified at certain things in the book as well, like the bulbs coming out of her hands and the death of the puppy as well as others. I guess the fact I was freaked out/disgusted means that the author did a great job in her descriptions and world building, but it also means at times I was turned off by the book.
The characters were really well fleshed out, I understood them completely. I also felt the author did a great job of describing the change with Maya and the pain and wants that she had from it. I absolutely loved Gabe, and even kinda liked Tarren and his bad attitude. I became invested in the people in the books, even though I am not positive I will continue on in the series. I can see that many people will like this, it just was not for me.
