About the Book
Called from birth to carry the Light of God into a world filled with Darkness, seventeen-year-old Sara Benedict finds the mission this time has changed. This city, this school, is more about her growth. No longer will she function alone, but she needs Angus Finlay to fulfill the prophecies.
Yet there’s something deeper going on behind the scenes, and the harder she tries, the greater the danger seems. Her work of rescue must continue, but this task just might shut off the Light inside her once and for all.
Wings by Suzanne D. Williams is a paranormal romance with lots of symbolism, supernatural happenings, and a strong Christian allegory. Sara Benedict is a seventeen-year old who has been a carrier of the Light of God since she was born. When God tells her that it is time to move then she and her parents and older brother move where ever God is leading Sara. Sara has always worked alone but she was sent to her present location to meet Angus Finlay for she needs his help in fulfilling prophecies. There is a very real and great danger in the new location but Sara still has a job to do but it may mean her loss of the Light. The book description stated that it is “an allegorical look at the power of Christ’s death and resurrection.”
Suzanne is an excellent writer and she did a great job with this book and even though paranormal is not a favorite genre of mine, I did enjoy the book. The characters were so real that I felt as if I were interacting with them which at times left me feeling confused and wondering just what I did believe. The dialogue includes a lot of scripture references mostly from Sara but the rest of the dialogue is typical of teenagers and their parents. The descriptions of all the action scenes were so well written that I could see exactly what was happening but I must say that in some instances I had trouble believing what was happening. The plot is pretty much straight forward until the second half of the book where there are some twists and turns that even add some suspense. It is evident that Suzanne is well founded in her Christian beliefs and does an exemplary job of portraying them in this book.
Even though I do not love the book as indicated by five stars, I gave the book five stars anyway for I did enjoy it and the author did an excellent job with the writing.
I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a strong Christian paranormal romance of teenagers that also includes a great deal of allegory.
Thanks to the author, Suzanne D. Williams, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
