"A brilliant, heart wrenching story about love in a time of war. Rebel Wing soars." ~Anna Carey, author of the Eve trilogy and the upcoming Blackbird series
"I've never been actively jealous of a fictional character . . . until now. Aris's adventures set my imagination on fire, and made my heart take flight." ~Kass Morgan, author of New York Times bestseller The 100
"What starts as a tale of star-crossed romance quickly evolves into a gripping page-turner, with gender roles and identity explored and questioned at every turn." ~ STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly
"Reminiscent of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games (2008) and Lois Lowry's The Giver (1993), this tale quickly takes off in its own imaginative direction...Part mystery, part romance, part sci-fi, Banghart's fast-paced exploration of loyalty, identity and commitment is entertaining and intriguing." ~ Kirkus Reviews

I am so excited to share Rebel Wing with you. This book is so special to me...I wrote the first draft when my husband was deployed for a year to a war zone. Aris and this story were born out of my longing and worry for him...and my desire to be with him, no matter the cost.
The story became about so much more than that, though. Questions of identity, political accountability, how far a person will go to do the right thing....and how far they'll go for the people they love.
I hope you enjoy!
