Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

Neat freak lab tech, Lily Banner lives her life as any ordinary human. She’s dedicated to her work and loves to hang out with her friends at Dante’s Circle, their local bar. When she discovers a strange blue dust at work she meets a handsome stranger holding secrets – and maybe her heart. But after a close call with a thunderstorm, she may not be as ordinary as she thinks.

Shade Griffin is a warrior angel sent to Earth to protect the supernaturals’ secrets. One problem, he can’t stop leaving dust in odd places around town. Now he has to find every ounce of his dust and keep the presence of the supernatural a secret. But after a close encounter with a sexy lab tech and a lightning quick connection, his millennia old loyalties may shift and he could lose more than just his wings in the chaos.

Sneak Peek @ Chapter 1 of Dust of My Wings!

I don’t know where to start with Dust of My Wings by Carrie Ann Ryan. The story of Shade, angel, and Lily, human (to start), has a lovely cast of characters that makes it easy to fall into the story and into their world.

Dust of My Wings is the first book in the Dante’s Circle series and WOW, what a start! In this case, it all starts with a vile of angel dust – specifically the dust from the angel Shade’s raven-like wings. Enter Lily, OCD chemist that has said vile of dust… Oh, and she kick-starts his heart and libido from the moment he sees her – Oh to be Lily.

As the story progresses there are many other kids of paranormal introduced, a lightening strike that changes ‘things’, and a secret plot against Shade and all angels to unravel… all while trying to deal with lust, love, and changing DNA.

The story is well written and the characters come to life as you read them, a rare treat, sadly. This is a love story, a mystery, an action story that combines love, loss, passion, pain, and hope. The next story is Ambrose’s, Shade’s BFF and the leader of the warrior class of angels. I can’t wait!

Carrie Ann Ryan is a bestselling paranormal and contemporary romance author. After spending too much time behind a lab bench, she decided to dive into the romance world and find her werewolf mate – even if its just in her books. Happy endings are always near – even if you have to get over the challenges of falling in love first.

Her first book, An Alpha’s Path, is the first in her Redwood Pack series. She’s also an avid reader and lover of romance and fiction novels. She loves meeting new authors and new worlds. Any recommendations you have are appreciated. Carrie Ann lives in New England with her husband and two kittens.

    I’ve heard Carrie Ann mention the title, but I had no idea what the story was about until now. It sounds like a very different take on the paranormal to me and as such it’s intriguing. Best of luck, Carrie Ann! Not that you’ll need it. 🙂 Great review, Mistress Anya!
