Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

My Tease for this week comes from:

 Wings of Redemption
(Return to Sanctuary 0.5)
Sarah Purdy Gilman 

First - The Blurb:

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.

Second - The Tease:

"I'm not proposing anything gargantuan. I just want to kiss you."


How to put it? He'd never been skilled in the emotional expression department. "Because when I flew you up here last night, I felt like a twenty-five year old. I don't know why you make me feel this way, but I like it."

This tease probably makes better sense if you understand that he is 500 years old.

Wings of Redemption is a beautifully written short Novella which can easily be read in an afternoon.

I liked the main two characters, Saffron and Kestrel. They interacted well and were easy to understand. I also liked Fire Eyes (Decimus - Kestrel's Guardian). He's extremely protective and also knows how to provide the right advice.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

  1. Sometimes a kiss is gargantuan though.... I am thinking this is one of those times and he just doesn't know it yet.
