“Prepare yourselves to be completely freaked out and creeped out.  The ride Perry is on in this book is an intense one.” ~Under the Covers

The addiction continues, and after the explosive and mindblowing ending of LYING SEASON you can’t help but pick this one up RIGHT AWAY.  And on a side note I give you a warning, once you’ve reached this point in the series you won’t be able to read anything else until you’ve gotten to the current book.  You’ve been warned.

ON DEMON WINGS brings us a depressed Perry.  She was thrown out and stomped on and her heart is broken.  She goes back home to lick her wounds, but home is not a safe haven for her.  Always the outsider, and suffering from her broken heart, she doesn’t see what’s been happening to her.  Prepare yourselves to be completely freaked out and creeped out.  The ride Perry is on in this book is an intense one.  One that doesn’t let up until we’ve read the last page.  Oh wait, no it doesn’t let up there either.

Family betrayals and new romances.  This book will have your gut turning with the decisions that Perry makes and the path she takes.  Although I wasn’t always a fan of what she was doing, and even pissed me off a couple of times, it all made for an adrenaline filled story.  Ms. Halle definitely amped up the fear factor with this one!

Not a whole lot of Dex, but he was always a presence in this book.  And when he does show, he makes it count!  And like I said at the beginning…once you get to that last page you will be compelled to read the next one!

Favorite Quotes:

Oh, fucking brilliant, I thought.  I have a special ghost.

“Last chance to get out and live a normal life,” he said.  “Are you kidding?  I gave that up for Lent,” she answered with a roll of her eyes.

“Perry,” he said quietly, his fingers trailing down the side of my face, “you’ll never have to save my life.  You gave me life.  I never lived a single day until the day I first met you.”

About Karina Halle

The daugh­ter of a Nor­we­gian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Van­cou­ver, Canada with trolls and eter­nal dark­ness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadis­tic appre­ci­a­tion for freak­ing peo­ple out. Like many of the flawed char­ac­ters she writes, Karina never knew where to find her­self and has dab­bled in act­ing, make-up artistry, film pro­duc­tion, screen­writ­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, travel writ­ing and music jour­nal­ism. She even­tu­ally found her­self in the pages of the very nov­els she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screen­writ­ing degree from Van­cou­ver Film School and a Bach­e­lor of Jour­nal­ism from TRU. Her travel writ­ing, music reviews/interviews and pho­tog­ra­phy has appeared in pub­li­ca­tions such as Con­se­quence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNo­mad Travel Guides. She cur­rently splits her time between her apart­ment in down­town Van­cou­ver and her sail­boat, where a book and a bot­tle of wine are always at hand.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
