In the struggle for survival...
Meghan's graduation gift is one that any eighteen-year-old would dream of: traveling abroad to England. Her journey turns into more adventure than expected when Meghan meets the mysterious Kiernan and is introduced to a strange society hidden beneath the streets of London.
The fittest win out at the expense of their rivals... When Meghan's life is threatened, she flees the city and seeks sanctuary in a distant village: a place unseen by human eyes for over one hundred years. Not knowing if anyone can be trusted, Meghan tries to determine who is friend, who is foe... and who has captured her heart. Meanwhile, a battle for survival brews all around her.

First solo adventure to another country some becomes more as Our heroine follows her heart instead of her instincts into the world of faerie. Can't wait to start book 2.

I enjoyed reading this book. This is my first book by this author and also my first Fae book. I have heard other talk about Fae books, so I am happy to finally read one. This book is perfect for the entire family. It is a clean read too, so nothing embarrassing if neighbors hear it playing.
This is a story about a girl turning 18 and gets to travel. She meets some Fae fairies both light and dark. This story has danger, adventure and paranormal happenings in it. I found this book to be entertaining and light hearted. I look forward to the next book in this series.
The author, Anna Kyss did a great job writing this story. The plot is great and I find her imagination intriguing. The narrator, Meghan Lewis did a good job on the delivery with multiple voices and accents. All in all this is an very interesting book and a new genre for me. Good job!
I received this audio book free of charge in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.
One of my problems with this book is that the heroine was never made real to me. The author only gave her as much development as you would give a passing secondary character. At the beginning, I honestly thought the heroine was a secondary character who was about to be killed or something before we met the actual heroine, because I was never given any reason to sympathize with her or to care what happened to her.
Not only was she not very well developed, but she was stupid. She never acted with any sense and she just kept going along with what the guys wanted while her only worry seemed too shallow to fit with the plot in the story.
And the one "guy" she is pining for is really kind of a jerk and has no redeeming qualities. He is too busy feeling sorry for himself and throwing tantrums to make himself likable.
And what qualities does this heroine have that makes all the guys want her except that she is pretty and will follow them dumbly wherever they lead? I wouldn't recommend this book to any Young Adult girls because I would frankly demand that they have more common sense than this.
Wings of Shadow was a very intriguing and interesting listen. The story kept my interest and caught my full attention.
The Iron Fae, Wings of Majesty, The Sound of Wings
I loved all of the characters she performed
Was not planned that way, but once I started listening, I could not stop. Everything else just had to come second until this book was finished.
Waiting for the sequel, can't wait!
A very interesting tale of the Fae world. I really enjoyed the different take on the telling of the dark and light fae. The characters were good and by the end I was very eager to hear what happens next. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series
I'm going to have to listen to the next book. I want to find out what happens next! this was a good book, written well. I loved the performance! she did a fantastic job! I hope we get to hear more about Megan in the next book!
Yes I would listen to Wings of Shadow again. Good narrator and well written.
When Killian's men grab Meghan from the tree house.
No but hope she does book 2 in the series. She did a great job on this one.
Everyone needs a Wish.

I am open to reviewing quality products.
I can be iffy when it comes to fantasy reads. This one was interesting and created intriguing world, It just didn't thrill me. The concept wan't anything new, good fae vs bad fae. It is kind of all over the place and I had a hard time keeping with the whole plot. Lots of stupid girl moments for the heroine.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Meghan Lewis, who does a fantastic job. Honestly her great read is one of the things that kept me listening. She has a terrific pace that keeps the book moving. One of the highlights of this book are the narrators skillful accents. I really enjoyed her work and would love to hear more reads from her.

Good coming of age story with a twist. I love new takes on old legends and myths. It started off by not revealing too much in the beginning, which made you feel a bit like Meghan, let you stew for a while until problems were resolved in a natural manner. The story had a nice flow, likable, believable characters. I like that it wasn't verbose but would have liked to see a little more character development. I enjoyed the narrator, she had believable accents and a pleasant voice. I look forward to listening to the next book.
Meghan Lewis is the narrator and does a wonderful job. Her accents are great and she really brings the characters to life.
The story itself is nice and easy to listen to.
The only complaint I would have is that the world building could have been a little better; the beginning was a bit confusing. The whole story seemed kind of rushed to me. The time span in the story is weeks and month going and sometimes it seemed like something is missing.
The characters are nicely written and easy to relate to. Although I have to say that Meghan seems kind of naïve, but maybe that is supposed to be the way.
What I personally didn’t agree with is that Meghan was gone for weeks and months and didn’t miss or contact her family in America; you would think that someone would think that some is wrong when she never calls or even just writes after all that time. Or that she would start to miss her family. But that is just my opinion and maybe that will be addressed in the second book.
Overall, I give it a 3 stars and curious to see what the second book is like.
