The Team That Stole Readers Hearts is Back:

Gilded Wings Releases to a ‘5-Star’ Explosion!

 

When a small, unknown book came out at the beginning of 2012 called Until Next Time, it was received well. Blogs, reviewers – most had only good things to say about this mysterious author and her look into a ‘new world.’ With the inundation of vamps, wolves and angels in fiction, some thought this was going to be yet another story about the ‘fallen’ and the demons who were after them. However, the more the ‘buzz’ built, the more readers learned that this tale – this angel/warrior team – was COMPLETELY different than what had been seen for the past few years. This is a team that spoke volumes about life, romance, adventure and a whole lot of fun!

 

Gilded Wings is Book II of The Angel Chronicles trilogy and, (even though I didn’t think it was possible in ANY series to say this), it’s even better than the first. Set in a time period that was completely exciting and has made a comeback recently – The Gilded Age – Emily and Matthew find themselves in a brand new life that’s filled with secrets, lies and the literal backstabbing of the ‘Captains of Industry’ who actually built this country.

 

The scenes are spectacular. From Emily’s first beginnings in Russia during a moment in history that will forever be remembered for its absolute shock and fear; to an arrival across the ocean that makes the reader hold their breath because the writer does such an amazing job that you can almost see the Statue of Liberty welcoming people to America’s shores. The reader is then taken into an arrogant world that includes everything from mansions of the wealthy that still exist today; to the backstreets and boroughs that almost burned down around the heads of the poverty-stricken; an up-close-and-personal walk through Central Park with a view of the original shops on Park Avenue; as well as a famous show that Harry Houdini put on with his famous pachyderm, that’s STILL talked about today.

 

But with all the amazing scenes and breathtaking looks into very real locations and situations, the romantic issues between this angel/warrior team become even more difficult. Jason (for all those like me who were just waiting to see what happened next) returns…but you will be surprised. The author has done a magnificent job of not following the ‘crowd.’ In fact, this romantic triangle takes a turn that you will NOT believe and could never have guessed from reading the first book.

 

Gilded Wings is a stand-alone story, although Until Next Time is a perfect lead-in that will have you sitting in your beds, chairs, by the fire, etc. – without moving – until both have been savored. The only issue to be upset about is that you don’t have book III in your hand when you finish.

 

A huge ‘shout-out’ to this author for a remarkable job. Although this is categorized as a YA – ALL ages will love this! And if you’re a Matthew fan – heads up and hearts a pitter-pat, because he plays a much bigger and cooler role this time around!

 

‘5-Stars!’

Raunchy Adaptation of Classic TV Series Arrives on Home Video

  Chips DVD Review by Kam Williams Raunchy Adaptation of Classic TV Series Arrives on Home Video Whenever a classic television series is made into a movie, the buzz always seems to be about whether the screen version will be a creative variation on the theme or merely a campy, cornball, take-the-money-and-run ripoff trading in familiar formulas and shopworn cliches. After all, for every inspired adaptation like Batman (1989), Charlie's … [Read More its Good for You.....]

Finding Relaxation in the Most Remote Locations of All
