With an electrifying start, Wings of Sorrow starts off at full speed, immediately grasping the attention of the reader. As you read, you become more and more invested in the storyline and the lives of the characters. It's like the beginning of a great horror movie, it grabs you within the first few minutes [pages], and once Iain has you in his [imaginative] clutches, there is No way you can escape by putting down this book, you'll find you can't stop reading until you've uncovered every last detail.
You find the main character is destined by prophecy [not a spoiler since it says so in the book description] to allow bad things to happen. Iain then turns the definition of good and bad on its head, resulting in several instances where you're rooting for the bad guys who are good, instead of the good guys who are bad. While the story doesn't end with a cliffhanger per say, it does leave an opening for a sequel.
The character development was fully fleshed out for both the main and secondary characters, the storyline grabs you and keeps you reading even when life's little disturbances come calling, like eating, sleeping, or even using the restroom, well.. I take that back, you can still read in the restroom. 😇
I loved the world and the characters, especially Sorrow. I feel this book was written without the usual gore and details in a normal Iain Rob Wright book, so it's definitely safe for younger readers [Probably why it's authored as I.R. Wright instead of Iain Rob Wright].
