Title: Shadow Wings
Author: Raye Wagner and Kelly St. Clare
Published date: February 8, 2018
I will never be controlled again.
A manipulative dragon shifter. A sexy phaetyn prince. Me? I shouldn’t even exist.
With peace established in Verald, I should be free; Lord Tyrrik is liberated from his blood oath, after all. But the freedom in Verald is an illusion. If I remain, destruction will surely follow.
As soon as I come into my powers, the blood-thirsty emperor of Draecon will know. Even now, he is hunting me.
When a Phaetyn prince arrives promising safety, the solution seems perfect. A little too perfect. But is the objective of our group security or something more? Because everyone is telling me what my goals should be.
Who do you trust when everyone has lied to you?
Should I listen with my head – or my heart?
I might not get a choice.
Holy drak and pancakes!
For me, Shadow Wings was definitely one of my favorite reads of the year.
I was a bit disappointed that Tyrrik was unconscious 3/4 of the book. Seriously, i was so excited to find out more about Tyrrik and read more about him. Anyways, it does not matter, I still love this book.
This second installment, dare I say was better than the first book. We see more of Tyrrik and the quirkiness of Ryn. With less violence, more adventure and the introduction of the Phateyn lands it honestly exceeded my expectations.
Ryn has come such a long way since she was trapped in the castle. With a new purpose, she sets out to find safety in the Phateyn lands.
She meets Kamoi the Phateyn prince. *Thankfully, Ryn had no interest for that arrogant bastard. *
She finds out secrets, walks through betrayal and conquers it like a boss.
Honestly when she discovered Tyrrik was being drained she demolishes the Queen. And then the king.
I whipped my tail, lashing it across his torso. He was thrown across his dead queen, landing with a cry of pain. Using my talons, I swept at the rubble and the dipped weapons mixed in, launching them at the Phaetyn King.
Damn girl. From a soap making human girl to a goddamn scary dragon.
Usually it takes me four hours to read a book straight without interruptions, but this book took me a day. Why you may ask? Bloody hell, it was a good book.
There were so many priceless scenes in Shadow wings.
Ryn’s infatuation with stones and gems was hilarious.
I strode down several empty halls before i realized i was alone. Alone. With my knife. And a bajillion precious jewels. Conditions were perfect.
Apparently so did Tyrrik because the scenes with him bribing her to learn to fly with gems was priceless.
I was upset when I got to the end of the book but ecstatic when I learned Tyrrik and Ryn finally mated! I have literally never read anything quite captivating as that scene.
Closing my eyes, the threads of our bond drifted into focus. So little black the plainness of my blue threads was heartbreaking. I wanted the contrast of his onyx black wrapped with the blue of my Drae energy. The beauty of our bond was in the contrast and compliment of colors…
Overall Shadow Wings was immensely different than Blood Oath. In a good way. Ryn is more knowledgeable about her world and herself in general.
With a combination of Magic, Fantasy, Betrayal, Love, and my favorite: Dragons! Shadow Wings truly is a book I will forever treasure.
