"Gylded Wings" by Linda Nightingale
If you are in to paranormal tales and fantasy's you have come to the right place because 'Gylded Wings will give one quite a entertaining romantic read. This story was of Gyldan [an angel born into slavery and Brit [who was a human and there to take him to Earth]. I will say you will have to keep up with this story because there will be a lots of twist where the reader will find that on Gyldan's flights of discovery from Anachrys to Earth as he will suffers from the uncertainly as well as the acceptance of the truth. I like the description of how this author delivers a wonderful description of Gyldan running from the castle, with a horrible winter landscapes upon them as they are on there way to the portal to Earth which happens to be Miami. Having been treated so horribly in Anachrys as a slave and now being treated with great reverence was somewhat mystifying for Gyldan and learning just who his rescuer was that brought him to Earth was quite interesting. As Gyldan is now in a new world and seems to have lost his memory and will have to learn and get help from his new friends. What will happen as "Gyldan is bent on experiencing his newfound powers unmindful of the harm to Brit or the others."
Gylded Wings is a paranormal romance set in dual locations. Anachrys is a world of two Kingdoms paralleling our own medieval times, but one which treats Angels as slaves. In this world we are introduced to Gyldan and his siblings, Sarah and Adamus. The Kingdoms are poised for battle when a beautiful stranger offers Gyldan a chance of escape to a place where Angels are treated very differently.
Running from the castle, a harsh winter landscape and a desperate last fight, Gyldan and his rescuer step through a portal and arrive on Earth. The gate opens in a churchyard in modern Miami. Gyldan is mystified when other Angels treat him with great reverence. He also learns that his rescuer’s real name is Brit. This modern world shocks Gyldan, until his new friends help him remember who he really is. But can he truly be the Angel they say he is? Half of him says he is still the slave Gyldan, but the other half fights to be someone more.
This is a book about a Fallen Angel and his journey through redemption, with a new twist in the modern world. Ideal for those who enjoy paranormal tales and fantasy settings.
Ordinarily I am not one to, choose fantasy fiction--however, due to a fascination with angels, when Gylded Wings came my way, I accepted the offer. I've read and reviewed Ms. Nightingale's work in the past and liked it very much. I was pleased to see this one surpasses the rest. Gyldan and Brit together are a hoot to "read". The differences, in thought processing, customs and mores are vast, but they come together on an all together different plane and are a pure pleasure to read. If you love fantasy--and angels, fallen or otherwise--this is the book for you! Kat Henry Doran, Wild Women Reviews
