Malchediel, a bit of a rebel angel, is not impressed when he is sent to do a guardian angels duty but approaches the task with the same resolve he fights every battle with the Underworld – he will protect Amy at all costs.
Amy is happy in her life. After her father dies she sets up a small art business and settles into doing what she enjoys. Her friend Stephen wants more from her but she keeps him at bay and insists they are only friends. When Malchediel enters her shop and buys one of her paintings she doesn’t realise this is the start of a new beginning for her and the revelations which follow open up a whole new world and her heart.
Wings Unfurled is Maureen Turner’s compilation of the two books in her Wings Unfurled series previously published as downloads. This one is available in paperback only but it is worth that bit extra in my opinion. I really loved this book and kept coming back to read more as much as possible. I was disappointed when it ended and I hope Ms Turner is going to write another. The characters of Amy and Malchedial hold a lot of appeal and depth and I was carried away with the plot and very keen to know what was going to happen next. This book really charmed me.
As soon as I began to read I remembered just why I'd loved the stories so much first time round. The imagery is wonderful, the characters so warm and well drawn. As soon as Malchediel made his entry onto that first page I could visualize him perfectly, his banter with the slight touch of arrogance makes him so appealing and I love his catchphrase, 'By all the saints.' Very celestial.
Throughout the book the confrontations and battles between angels, nephilim and demons are very well written, I was drawn in to them all. I'd never heard of a nephilim until I read these stories so I learned something new.
As I'd read the stories before and knew what was coming I could hardly wait to get to the final chapter. The climax is the most electrifying, exciting amazing and beautiful conclusion you could ever imagine and again so well crafted. You'll never look at good and evil in the same way again.
This book is most worthy of being made into a film. It would have some fabulous CGI scenes, I could picture them all the way through.
I discovered this author via twitter with this book, and she has since become one of my favourites. I've read all of her books and am always looking out for the next one. I would love to see a sequel to this one.
A very worthy 5*, if I could give it 10 I would!
This is a delightful story of a celestial being, Malchadiel, a warrior angel being sent to earth to Earth to protect Amy, an unsuspecting nephilim who is in grave danger from the powers of darkness and fallen angels. I won’t give too much away about the rest of the plot, only to say that, although at first unwilling to act as a babysitter, Malchadiel being a warrior angel, he soon finds himself falling for Amy. It is a love reciprocated, but it can never be – or can it?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it is well written and thoughtful. I look forward to reading the sequel, AMY, and other books from this author.
I have rated it 5 stars.
Amy, Nephilim Freedom Fighter
This is a sequel to Malchediel, and a very well thought out story it is. I enjoyed both books very much, if you like fantasy and magic then you will too. Ms Turner is a talented author. A well deserved 5 stars.
I have already read her book of short stories, Purgatory. That was a good read too. Well done Maureen Turner ! I won't hesitate to read another of her books.
