A new time. A new planet. A new world. New technologies. Two new humanoid species. A new war.

The two species separate, but in the removal, some of the best are left behind among the worst. Captured and held as slaves, they are treated cruelly for entertainment. Torture. Pain.

Annabel, endures a year of such cruelty, kept alive only by way of syringes which, while healing, cause a greater agony. She discovers a secret held by their leader, and decides to help her own kind by escaping–even if it means a final death, preferable to the life she has endured.

Her escape succeeds, and she joins her own kind at the other end of the planet. Among her new friends she meets many who help her adjust to their happier life. Will Annabel find romance? Or will another war break her down?

Black Wings by Iryna K. Combs

Black WingsEver wonder what Earth’s future could be? Is it possible that a new breed of humanoids could rise in an effort to survive on another planet? What if two species came to be? Would war still be a huge part of our future? Black Wings by Iryna K. Combs is a dark and frightening look at a future world where hatred, fear and torture still thrive, even in the shadows of love in a time when humanoids now have wings.

She was left behind when her people left to find a safe and peaceful haven. For one long and brutal year Annabel was tortured, drugged and tortured again. Only through quick thinking and her own brand of deceit does she manage to get away. Near death, she arrives to be embraced by her own kind, but one man sees more than a changed survivor, he sees love and it terrifies Annabel. As she adjusts to her new freedom, her very blood could hold secrets that will help her people, because Annabel is different now.

Is war on the horizon as Annabel’s people, the Anlights prepare to stand against the evil, warmongering Varkin? Will Annabel become more than just another soldier? Is she the key to victory? Young, confused and damaged by her past, will Annabel overcome her past and find healing in the arms of the man she has fought so hard not to love?

Hang on for this one, clever, fresh, and full of action, Black Wings is a brilliant tale that begs to be read. The plot is fabulous, the details in each scene come to life and the characters are prime examples of good vs evil, with a touch of that gray area that adds more depth. All flows perfectly with only a few bumps in the dialogue that sometimes seemed not as developed as the story, which can be chalked up to the fact that this talented author's first language is not English. Looks to me like there is a new author on the block with a story to tell!

I received this copy from the author, Iryna K. Combs in exchange for my honest review.
