Publisher's Summary

Humans aren't as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a supernatural trait that lies dormant within their genetic makeup. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

Neat freak lab tech Lily Banner lives her life as any ordinary human. She's dedicated to her work and loves to hang out with her friends at Dante's Circle, their local bar. When she discovers a strange blue dust at work, she meets a handsome stranger holding secrets - and maybe her heart. But after a close call with a thunderstorm, she may not be as ordinary as she thinks.

Shade Griffin is a warrior angel sent to Earth to protect the supernaturals' secrets. One problem: He can't stop leaving dust in odd places around town. Now he has to find every ounce of his dust and keep the presence of the supernatural a secret. But after a close encounter with a sexy lab tech and a lightning-quick connection, his millennia old loyalties may shift, and he could lose more than just his wings in the chaos.

The Narrator is Ridiculous. .

The story has a good base, and thats about it. It repeats, i mean really repeats, like were stupid, and don't understand.
Also, the Narrator is Ridiculous. . Like he's reading a story out of a porn mag, i will stay away from this narrator, forever..
I really can't even believe they released it, after listening to him, i really wanted to turn it off, and scream. Because of that, its not worth a credit, only buy it if its on ssle for $2, im serious. .

Dante's Circle Book One.

Dante's Circle Book One.

When Shade is summoned to before the Elders of his angelic race to clean up the dust his wings shed, he is sent to a human woman working at a lab. He falls for her almost immediately. Later that night, a freak lightning strike hits Lily and her friends in the bar Dante's Circle. After being together, Lily and Shade discover she is actually a supernatural creature, too. Now they must find out how to survive with another angel on the warpath.

Audio Review:
Gregory Salinas narrates with an enthusiastic dramatization that can be a bit over-the-top at times. He uses a breathy voice for most of the book, even in everyday scenes without a hint of romance. If you enjoy the drama, this will be a great narration.

If you're looking for a new supernatural series with non-religious angels, dragons and other supernaturals this is the book for you!

Kudos to the narrator

He truly did the best he could with such horrid writing, I felt sorry for the guy. You could tell he was trying his best to help out, but really had nothing to work with. The plot could have been good, if the writing hadn't been so juvenile. I am very disappointed in what should have been a good book. I cannot finish this one, which is rare for me.

I am sure the story is great

But I just couldn’t get past the narrator. It was as if he was reading an overly dramatic 1980’s romance novel with the breathy, swoony voice. Gah. Sorry/not sorry.

Use to be my favorite digital book

From the moment I first read Dust of My Wings it has been one of my favorite books. Having listened to it now in audio format my enjoyment of it has doubled. Salinas has done great justice to Carrie Ann Ryan's work. The different tones and inflections of each character was fantastic.

Wow. One great read.

I was give this book by the author for a honest review.
I was given an audible version of this book for my review. First let's start with that. This is my first audio book I have ever done. It wasn't bad. Different from actually reading it.

As for the book. I loved it. It was a great story and a must read. I love Shade and that he is an angel. I loved learning about him and his past. I hope we get to see more of him in Ambrose book. Ambrose is his best friend who is a angel too. But he is more of a closed of person. I can't wait to see him open up. Lily is a human who comes across Shade. But Lily life is about to change. This is a great book. It keeps you drawn from page one. Wondering what will happen next. A must read. Can't wait to read the next one and find out Ambrose deep dark secrets and pains. Grab your copy today. It's so worth it. Loved loved loved this book.

Great Paranormal Romance

Dante's Circle is one of my favourite paranormal romances series. This was my first time listening to the audiobook version, and I loved it. I wish I had listened to it sooner. The series is very well-written with intriguing characters. Gregory Salinas does a fantastic job with the narration, further immersing the listener.

Overall, Dust of My Wings is wholly entertaining, steamy with quality plot and narration. I recommend the series to all PNR fans. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook, and my unbiased review is voluntarily given.

Hooked...!

I actually read the last book first! Which I felt was a bit short. This book however, was long enough to set the scene and get everything in motion! It was fast paced enough not to feel like it was just filled with fluff... Every word counted... I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!

Narration plays a big part in whether I keep listening to a book... Hence 5*... Perfect representation of characters and not an annoying voice! 😁

Well written

This one was again a fantastic read with plenty of interesting twists and turns that have left me wanting the end but not willing to have the series end. Definitely one that is worth a credit.
