Wings of Darkness: Book 1 of The Immortal Sorrows Series by Sherri A. Wingler
Death comes for everyone eventually, but Izzy Maitland plans to live forever. At nearly eighteen years old, it’s not an unreasonable goal, but Fate has other plans. Izzy has a car accident. A bad one. Suddenly, strange things start happening and her ordinary life is turned upside down. She wakes up tasting blood, more often than not, and her injuries heal at an alarming rate. Her friends and family weaken, and every day, Izzy grows stronger. Strangest of all, she seems to have acquired a stalker, and he might be the Angel of Death.
**Note: This book contains some violence and strong language. Recommended for ages 16+.**
This book was suggested in a book group and boy was I glad to have it pop up on my news feed. I admit that the angel caught my eye, nice choice for a cover model! Asher, the Angel of Death is a part of our plane of existence, but when he’s in a crowd, no one really sees him and they all take measures to avoid him (he’s kinda like the Knight bus from Harry Potter). Then when it’s someone’s time to go and they finally do look at him, they see who they wanna see or their worst nightmare. This is not the case with Isabel. She sees his true face, admits he’s hot, but instead of falling in instalove, she stalkerzones him. I thought that was hilariously funny. I liked seeing her resist even though she was attracted to him. Girl got some sense in her for sure, that made for a fun time being in her head. Asher himself has POV chapters, which was a nice angle without too much exposition. His brother the Grim Reaper and her best friend Gwen added much comedic relief to the story also, not to say that Isabel isn’t funny because she is. There’s plenty of drama, adventure, action, and romance in this book – I can’t wait to start the next one!
