As an Agent of Death, Madeline Black is responsible for escorting the souls of the dearly departed to the afterlife. It's a 24/7 job with a lousy benefits package. Maddy's position may come with magical powers and an impressive wingspan, but it doesn't pay the bills. And then there are her infuriating boss, tenant woes, and a cranky, popcorn-loving gargoyle to contend with. Things start looking up, though, when tall, dark, and handsome Gabriel Angeloscuro agrees to rent the empty apartment in Maddy's building. It's probably just a coincidence that as soon as he moves in demons appear on the front lawn. But when an unholy monster is unleashed upon the streets of Chicago, Maddy discovers powers she never knew she possessed. Powers linked to a family legacy of tarnished halos. Powers that place her directly between the light of Heaven and the fires of Hell.

When it started I had a hard time investing in the character and seeing where it was going. But that worked it's way out about a third into it. It turns out I REALLY enjoyed the book, Anything to do with Angels and Demons makes me happy. It's worth a credit for sure. I'm going to dl the next book and hope it keeps up.
the whole story was very expected and times seemed to drawn on. Author has a good idea on thr story line but alot more explaining went on then was necessary. Also the moments in the book meant for suspense were lack luster and had expected outcomes. Narrator trys to do different voices for each character but all the men sound the same and all the females sound the same.
Edge of seat
I'm not sure Did not enjoy listening to her that much. She seemed a lil flat to me. But if i had to choose, i'd say Beezel.. the gargoyle.
Yes, but took about 7 or 8 sittings.
No but I will listen to the next book in the series.
Magic to the bone by Devon Monk
I got totally lost in the story. A girl thinks she knows whats going on just to have her world ripped apart.
all of it every chapter is a new twist
slightly nasialy good
I deffinatly want to sit and listen for ever
This was a new author for me and I really enjoyed her fast paced pitfall filled adventure. I think that the audio version allows a reader to really experience the characters horror, anxieties and triumphs more vividly.
The revelations of the heroine's origins and Evangeline's story.
I just loved Beezle. Coleen Marlo does an awesome job of voicing the character.
Maddy's first meeting with Azeal.
Overall the book was okay. The plot didn't seem like anything special. The explainations of the supernatural creatures was just hard to swallow even for a paranormal book. I will not be buying the next book. It's not worth it to me.
The first in a new series, Black Wings was full of action and emotional conflict, with some nice resolution at the end. The author left enough loose ends that I'm anxious for the next book, Black Night, to be released. Good characters, good writing and a nice job of narrating by Coleen Mario put this series on my auto-buy list.
