On a Dark Wing

                           On a Dark Wing


The choices I had made led to the moment when fate took over. I would learn a lesson I wasn't prepared for. And Death would be my willing teacher.
Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her "lucky" break came at the expense of her mother's life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.
Now she's the target of Death's ravens and an innocent boy's life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey's secret crush—starts to climb Alaska's Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.
And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets.

 (MY THOUGHTS)        5 HEARTS!!!!!
On a Dark Wing is a beautiful story of a teenage girl who becomes a young woman, and understanding the meaning of love and the sacrifices she will need to make for it. I love Jordan Dane’s writing. She always writes with an eerie darkness and romance that touches deep into my heart. I thought Dane’s novel, In the Arms of Stone Angels, had me crying of heart-break, but she takes On a Dark Wing to a deeper level of heart-break that had me crying all the way though Abby's story. Jordan Dane just has this great insight for writing dark, eerie paranormal, that sends chills though my body. She definitely has a gift for writing the eerie.

Abbey is a stubborn, head-strong teenage girl. She has carried the guilt of her mother's death for five years, which has closed her inside a dark place and makes her an outcast with her peers at school. But Death has come back to Abbey, and what she thought she hated, will be what shows her the meaning of love.

Abbey does have one friend, Tanner. I love this guy. Tanner is also an outcast and loner, which is why Abbey and Tanner cling to each other. Tanner is a true friend to Abby and there is nothing he wouldn't sacrifice for her. Tanner and Abbey’s relationship is one that had me loving these two together, especially when Abbey figures out what's fantasy and what's real.

On a Dark Wing is told from about five POVs, with Abbey being the main one. I liked this. I like knowing what the other characters are thinking, and Jordan Dane's writing from this many POVs is clear for each character. I highly recommend On a Dark Wing as a must read and am definitely looking forward to Jordan Dean's next novels.
