EBook Review – Wings of Shadow (The Underground Trilogy)

Before reading this ebook, I purposefully didn’t read the prologue, so I had no real idea what the story was about, and I found the whole premise in a literary world currently full of vampires and various shades of that colour grey to be refreshing –

I have therefore absolutely intentionally failed to mention in my review the central crux of the book! It really is a lovely surprise!

Wings of Shadow is not a challenging read, nor is it a read that will change your world, however it is light and easy to read, its the kind of ebook you can pop on the Kindle before your holiday and happily dip into when round the pool.
