The Black Wings series has an enticing ecosystem of Agents of the Dead, angels, demons, fairies, and gargoyles. Despite those natural advantages, however, I think it is time for me and Madeline Black to part ways.

In BLACK NIGHT Maddy’s band of stalwart hunks seemed like little more than a gloomy flock of crows, predicting doom and gloom while Maddy kicks butt. The chemistry in BLACK HOWL was infinitely more satisfying, as the machismo and banter added slap-stick spice to the action. And oh what action, as Maddy takes on the world of stuffy, entitled Grigori and continues to grow into her own.
The Madeline Black series employs a blend of two great, common urban fantasy tropes: the “big reveal” (where a mundane character discovers magic exists) and an open world where magic is commonly accepted. The mix of these two story-lines creates a chemistry that adds new zest to familiar concepts, an energy that I thoroughly enjoy.
