Angel's Wings


One thing I'll say about the author, Starfox Howl, is that she goes outside the box with her books. She has come up with one of the most unique series I've read in several years, and considering part of the series is for young adults that's great as we need more of those instead of the boring vampire and werewolf stories. Angel Wings is the second book in the MORFS series. I did not know that when I decided to review the book, but I did go and read the first one too. I'm very glad I did. Reading the first book cleared up a lot of problems and questions I had with the second book. Although not all of them.

While the plot is unique that also causes some problems for me. In the future a virus called MORFS is becoming an epidemic. Thing is MORFS affects everyone differently. In one person it can give angel wings and in another it can turn them into the opposite gender. While I don't really mind how far-fetched this virus sounds I do have a problem with it not being explained fully. Like how did it come into existence, how it can affect everyone differently, and why it can affect some people twice. To me those are questions that needed answered desperately.

Overall I thought it was a fun and interesting story. I'd recommend it to all young adult fans.

Book Blurb for Angel's Wings

The year is 2068 and the MORFS outbreak is worldwide. Science has found no cure, just better ways of keeping those sickened alive until the symptoms pass.

Angel Sanderson was stricken by the once deadly syndrome, the first time when she turned ten years old. After five years living trapped in the body and mind of an eight-year-old with butterfly wings, she is one of the rarest victims, someone in whom the syndrome is triggered a second time. The young woman who emerges is truly an angel, tall, lovely and a flyer with wings who can soar to the heavens.

On the first day at a school just for MORFS survivors, she meets a boy with a troubled past. Her attraction to him is real, but can their young love survive the trials of life and family without crashing and burning?
