Action and introspection in one book! this is exactly the kind of writing I love and I greatly enjoyed reading it. Set in a grim future, with political intrigue, dark secrets and modified humans who can fly, the main character thinks about what’s happening to him. It’s not just about solving the plot and finding out what’s going on, it’s also about finding out who he is and deciding who he is going to be.

I found it a gripping read. The setting, and some of the characters truly enthralled me. There’s dark humour here, and the kind of thoughtful word-crafting you’d expect from a literary author, but with the kind of plot you’d expect from a summer blockbuster movie. That balance of humour and darkness, sharp dialogue, insight, action and intrigue put me in mind of Mark Lawrence.

I gather this is book one of a series – it leaves me wanting to know what happens next. It is dark and violent, and what’s suggested is darker and more violent again than what’s shown, but it’s also key to plot and characters, not there for the sake of it. If you are craving clever speculative fiction, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book.

I did not know what to expect when I first read this book, so it having bumped it's way up into my top five books was beyond a pleasant surprise; it was amazing! It has caused me genuine excitement, fear, and has even caused me to laugh out loud (on the bus). I desperately hope there is a second book on its way!

BOBW is not the type of genre book that I usually gravitate towards but after reading the reviews, I took a tentative leap into the darkness. Two days later and I had not stepped foot outside the front door. The plot subtly drags you by the throat, through a mottled dark underworld of violence, deceit and things with wings. A superb sprinkling of mottled dark humour throughout, is the top hat to this staggeringly original journey into fantasy. Read this book!

I really enjoyed this book. It's not my typical genre but I would have missed out if I had not read it for that reason. There are some really interesting and unique characters; twists and turns in the plot which kept me entertained the whole way through; and an enjoyable hint of humour and wit. The landscape (as I imagine it) is both beautiful and deprived and exemplifies this book of contrasts and contradictions. I hope there are more ....

After seeing the reviews for this book I couldn't resist reading it and I'm so glad I did! A thrilling, intriguing and exciting story line that had me gripped and clinging on for more from start to finish. This story took me on a journey of imagination and emotion, with every page pulling me deeper in to the story and making me feel more and more like I was there. Every spare moment I had to read, I did. An absolute must.

If you like social commentary, dark characters and a rolling freefall of a story this book is for you. Well thought through, Blood on Borrowed Wings keeps delivering, whether it is the vividly described scenes, the revelations of the innermost thoughts of depraved members of a new world or the self-questioning of the unlikely hero who is merely playing out his life. Go on, give it a shot. You know you should.

What a brilliant read! I was gripped from the onset. Fantastic characters that you love or really repel you. The narrative is amazing and so visual I feel like I've watched it as well as read it! The kind of book that you think about whilst you are away from it, and are eager to get back to! Can't wait for the next book!
An absolute 'must read' even if it isn't your usual genre!
Loved it!
