Wilted Wings by Shadow Stephens - Review

Wilted WingsWilted Wings

Power, greed, and envy fill Damon and Ilisha’s world. Their hope of settling into a life of peace and family remains out of grasp. Damon is kidnapped and forced to stand trial for the death of his father while a breed of hybrids designed to destroy all angels is set loose. With no choice but to leave her earthly mother and baby behind, Ilisha struggles in a world of high politics and family feuds. She must become an ultimate warrior to save her husband and both the worlds she loves.

My Thoughts:  Wilted Wings is the second book in the Broken Butterflies series. The story continues with Ilisha and Damon. They are fighting off some serious evil in this book. The book starts down on Earth, which is being overrun by evil, and quickly shoots off to the kingdoms of Heaven. The scenery in this book sounds so beautiful. The descriptions of the different kingdoms are so vivid.

The characters of Wilted Wings were interesting. I loved watching Ilisha come into her own up in the kingdoms. She had to learn the politics so quickly, and she did such an amazing job. Damon can be kind of an overbearing jerk, but that is just my opinion. He loves his family fiercely though, and is willing to do anything to protect them and his kingdom. I enjoy Caligula’s character the most. She’s so snarky and pretty bad a** when it comes down to it. The bad guys in this book were a horrible level of evil. Bram is back in this book, and I am left wanting to both love and hate him. He is such a fickle character.

I don’t read many angel books, but from what I’ve read, Shadow Stephens is nothing like the others. The different kingdoms are an interesting part of this book. I also love the butterflies. They add a beauty to the violence in the story. There are other differences, but then I get into spoilers.

Wilted Wings is definitely an exciting book. I think readers will enjoy it. There is a little something to interest many readers. There are battles, politics, some mystery, and quite a few steamy moments. I will be interested in seeing what happens next for all these angels.
