URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Eden Moore 2: Wings to the Kingdom - Cherie Priest

Release Date: 25/05/12


At the Civil War battlefield at Chickamauga, Georgia, there have long been tales of sighting Old Green Eyes, said to be the guardian of the battle's dead, and now there's a new wrinkle. To wit, sightings of ghosts pointing frustratedly across the battlefield. The spirits need someone who can speak to them, and for them. Eden Moore is not interested. But the ghosts aren't taking no for an answer.


Cherie is an author that I’ve read before and enjoyed what occurred within the pages, yet upon reading this title, I was not only transported into Eden’s world once again but recalled the events of the previous title with a great deal of clarity which shows how well it affixed itself within my imagination.

What this second book in the series does for the reader is return to Eden’s world as events take hold and bring the reader a new mystery which whilst haunting as well as imaginative was a tad on the predictable side. Sadly this felt like a real let down for me but when you add the authors writing style into the mix, it makes it a tale that is wonderfully addictive with sharp prose, great dialogue and a lead character that I really wanted to spend time with. All in a great bit of fun and I’ll definitely be reading more of her work, although I hope that future releases try to keep the mystery alive a bit longer.
