Wings of Fire by Caris Roane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"The search is futile When carried out by the avenging heart. —Collected Proverbs, Beatrice of Fourth."
Warrior Antony Medichi has been searching for his breh Parissa Lovejoy for 3 months now. Pariasa, the famous Mortal with Wings has been taken by the evil Rith(loyal servant of Greaves). By night Medichi does his duty...fighting the death vamps and by day he does everything in his power to retrieve Parissa from Riths evil clutches.
This was by far my favorite of the series. There were a lot of other things going on in this world than just Parissa and Antony...which I greatly enjoyed! That Greaves is one EVIL mofo!! Parissa discovers that Greaves has been keeping Death and Ressurection slaves to keep his army and Administrators supplied with dying blood. While in captivity Parissa stumbles across Fiona...she finds out that she's Greaves oldest D and R slave and is appaled! She's been there for a hundred years. Once Parissa finally escapes she makes it her number one priority to save Fiona and the other slaves. I really admired her courage and her willingness to fight and not be a victim any longer.
The best part of this story was Antony and Parissa's love story. They really had a lot of reasons for not wanting to fall in love and acccept the breh-hedden. Since losing his wife and unborn child before his ascension, Medichi has lived a warriors life. Believing that his abilility to fall in love died along with his family. But Parissa is proof positive that he really can love and is scared shitless. Not only at love but the possiblity that he will fail her as he feels he did her and his wife. It was quite extrodinary to witness thier journey. And finally their surrender to one another and willingness to not live without the other!
"The first path seduces by promise, The second appeals to pride, But the worthy path demands surrender. —Collected Proverbs, Beatrice of Fourth"
Then there was the potential for another warrior and his breh. I just know I will adore Jean-Pierre's book!! That french accent just does it for me:)
All in all, I loved it loved it loved it! Love this series cant wait for the next one!
Oh and let me share my favorite quote in this one. Of course its from the baddest chica in literary history....Endelle!!
“You know, your speech patterns have changed. You used to be rather stiff in the ass. You’re loosening up. I think that’s a good thing. Medichi good in bed? Is that why you seem so different? Does he satisfy you? He should. He’s hung like a horse.”
I love her whit and barbs...cant wait to see who she ends up with! Its gonna be awesome:)
