Amalya Rivers longs to die and end her lonely existence—but it doesn’t work out that way…

A former runaway turned criminal, Amalya is murdered and thrust into a treacherous world full of red-skinned, horned beasts under the control of the Demon Ruler, Abaddon, instead of enjoying peace and serenity like she hoped. But saving a young child from a certain brutal death in the last moments of her life has earned her a chance at salvation.

Elliott the Redeemer wants no part in saving another soul…

After one too many failures at redeeming lost souls, the nail-biting, self-pitying Elliot has had enough of his work and would prefer to live out his eternity on Earth drowning in bourbon. It doesn’t matter that Amalya has grown black feathered wings signifying the good that still dwells within her. He can’t risk failure again.

Amalya must save someone from her past in order to escape Abaddon’s rule…

She has to prevent the now grown child she saved from committing murder or risk returning to Netherworld with Abaddon for good. She can’t do it alone, though. Amalya needs the help of the angel sent to guide her, but their emerging love might not be enough to convince Elliot she’s worth the risk.

Amalya loves her black wings. She knows she’s meant to be an angel—and she will stop at nothing to prove it…

I do enjoy some angels, when done right of course, and this tale of triumph and trials is one that had me hooked from the start. We all know men can be stubborn and you really do have to motivate them sometimes, our leading male is no exception to this! He's all man and wrapped in some juicy goodness, what gal wouldn't want to get him going! 

As the two continue on their journey, you're taken deeper into the world this author has created. And it's a pretty darn good one at that! I liked the balance of details mixed with dialog, it was never too much or too little. This story knows where it's going and the ride to get there is hot and fun! 

Just a few small issues editing issues that anyone else might not care about. But my BFF and site partner Sharon is an editor, so I can't help but spot the goofs! 
Overall, you just can't have a good pnr without some struggle and this saga takes you there and back. And again just for a fun whack on the head! I didn't know this author before reading Her Black Wings, but I do now and I look forward to reading more!

About the Author:
A.J. Norris is a romantic suspense and paranormal romance novelist. She began writing as a way to dim down the voices inside her head. She enjoys being able to get inside someone else's head, even a fictional one, and see what they see. Watching how her characters deal with difficult situations or squirm with the uncomfortable ones make the hard work of writing all worth it. She is a movie buff, especially book adaptations, loves watching her son play baseball and communing with other writers. She lives with her family who are extremely tolerant (at least most of the time) of all her late nights behind the computer.
