Review

"...I enjoyed the story, it was not an easy breezy story filled with happiness & sunshine - instead deep emotions & darkness. I read this book with an open mind & i was surprised to find a fantastic book. The book has many layers to it that need to be read to be understood. I could try explaining the book but to be honest i would not do it justice. I understand now why it received so many 5 star reviews. It was amazingly written & edited. I urge people to give this book a try..."

I just bought this book yesterday after reading the sample pages and immediately getting hooked on the story and needing to know what would happen next. I bought the book and spent the next hour immersed in a fascinating world of faeries, then got up early this morning and read straight through until I finished, it's that good.

College student Meghan thought she was going on a fun date with charming, blond-haired Kiernan and was introduced to a world she never knew existed....one that was impossible to walk away from. This is not the type of book I ordinarily read, but the storyline intrigued me, with the idea of twin brothers separated on their third birthday, one staying with his mother and the other going with his father to the dark world that he creates and rules over.

Without giving away too much of the story, I will share that there is a sweet love triangle here that is G rated and should appeal to all ages. This is also a well written and fast-paced story that races along. It's very difficult to put down and as the first book in a trilogy, it has a satisfying ending that leaves this reader dying for the next book.

This story should appeal to readers who enjoyed Twilight and other similar stories. The world of the Faeries is vividly drawn and the characters are likable, especially the boys grandmother, Selena and both Avery and Kiernan make for great heroes...Meghan isn't sure which one she likes better...and I'm not either, they're both amazing.

Highly recommend this, will be telling my twin nieces, who are 14 about it, and also my friends who are in their 40's...it really is a great story for both teens and adults. I predict that this book will do very well, and that the author will have a long and happy career ahead of her!

When I saw this ebook listed for the Kindle as FREE, the cover grabbed me. There was something about that midnight blue, the young man's gaze, and Big Ben in the background. I began reading in the early afternoon and was finished by evening. Wings of Shadow was that good.

Meg has taken time between graduating high school and entering college to travel on her own. Even though I find her need for independence admirable--as a reader it was not an intelligent decision, nor was her going off with Kiernan, a guy she hardly knows--and yet, I understood why she did these things because it was part of her character as established through her voice.

Blending the underground Tubes of present day London as the setting for the Dark Fae and the nature-covered rural world for the Light fae was a nice contrast of lifestyles and added color to the story. When main character Meg enters the secret world below the subway systems I could easily picture the gunmetal grays and blacks of the walls and clothing of the dancers; and when Wish presents his costumes to Meg, Avery and Kiernan, their rainbow colors popped off the page. Author Anna Kyss blends known faerie lore and adds her own twist. The Dark fae do feel the effects of the iron surrounding them but their leader, Kiernan's father, applying some Darwinian principles, has learned drinking human blood sustains the fae. The Light fae live off of nature, nurturing and sharing in what the earth creates, and they abhor blood drinking.

Watching Meg fight to survive in the world of the dark fae and then adjusting to life with the Light fae was a wonderful contrast to her character. Being attracted to Kiernan, then abhorring him for his father's treatment of her, sent Meg to the land of the Light fae where Avery befriends her.

Wings of Shadow is sweet with a little bit of sexy, adventurous with a dash of thrill, romantic without being too sappy.

As an adult with a love for the urban fantasy/alternate reality genre, I was surprised how much I enjoyed and became attached to the older teen characters. Kyss does a good job introducing whimsy and magic yet manages to weave in Darwinism for an extra dose of credible world building.

Overall Wings of Shadow is a fun romp for adolescents on up to adults.

I won a copy of this book in Elle Casey's Springtime Indie Book Giveaway.

If you like your YA with good-looking fae boys and maternal and/or queenly fae ladies, this book's got some good things going for it. There's also nice imagery of secret steampunk-tinged fae parties held in forgotten corners of the London Underground. I also appreciated this new vampiric take on the "dark fae" and how they've interpreted Darwinism(!).

Unfortunately, the characters and dialogue are very thinly written and stereotypical. Worst of all, worse even than the speed and ease with which the heroine, Meghan, is willing to forgive terrible wrongs done to her, is the fact that we're never given the slightest reason she -- a directionless American who comes off as far younger than her 18 years -- would have not one but two fae princes fall absolutely in love with her. She also does really dumb things in service of the contrived plot.

Meghan is a classic Mary Sue, the wish-fulfillment of countless teenage girls who dream of meeting a gorgeous guy (fae or no) while exploring a fantasy-England during their summer abroad. I get why that's appealing. I do. But there should be at least a little more depth in any literary portrayal of this girlhood dream, or else why read?
