Wings of Redemption (Return to Sanctuary 0.5) by Sarah Gilman
Release Date: 1 December 2012
Reading Order: Stand Alone
Humans and archangels don’t mix on the best occasions. When Saffron Morin goes to the gates of the demon colony, Eden, in search of her sister, she meets an archangel who is curious one minute and hostile the next, and she ends up the colony’s “guest” against her will.
Kestrel’s archangel psychic talent tells him the human woman’s life is in danger. Despite her family’s association with poachers who hunt archangels for their valuable feathers, he vows to save her life. Enemies by birth, lovers by choice, they give in to growing attraction as days pass.
Even if he succeeds in saving her life, he must hurt her to protect others of his kind, and he may not be able to live with himself after a betrayal he has no choice but to commit. In order to find redemption, the Collector’s daughter and an archangel must first find each other.
My Opinion 5 STARS
Having read this after book one I already knew about the world Ms Gilman can weave within her books.
I loved this series from book one, and this novella did not disappoint.
Kestrel (Kes) was an intriguing character, and I loved how he blossomed out of his shell upon meeting Saffron, even when he found out her true identity.
Saffron was another good character who seemed to get a lot of information from Kes even though it could have proven costly. I even liked Kes's demon protector, who was a good friend to him.
I just wish that this had been novel length instead of a novella.
