This series if just fabulous!
In The Torn Wing we are transported back to London in the 1800′s. Tiki and Rieker are trying to protect the human world from a faerie invasion. New foes are introduced as well as allies, and old foes seem to be changing their ways. Or are they?
The plot thickens! Wow, did the plot thicken! Though we had some resolution in book one, there were several unanswered questions. Like, what the heck is going on with Tiki’s birthmark! I am happy to say that question is answered and a few other bombs are dropped as well.
I was glad to see the family dynamic between Tiki and her gang of orphans was still present in this installment. That was one of the things that I really enjoyed in book one and I had hoped to see it again! There was some progression with the relationship between Tiki and Rieker, but could it have happened any slower! Goodness the tension between those two! I don’t know how a person could stand to be in the same room as them!
I love the historical elements of this story. Sure, it’s fantasy at heart, but there are some factual snippets in there.
It’s action packed and full of surprises. I know the story will keep you flipping the pages like it did me! I sat down to read a bit and didn’t get up till I was done! And I was still wanting more!
I can’t WAIT to read what happens in book three! More Dain, please. And feel free to kill off Larkin anytime….
