When the life you wanted has crumbled beneath your fingers, there’s nothing left to do but pick up the pieces and soldier on. You’ve done this before.
But what happens when you no longer feel like yourself anymore? When fires spontaneously start-up around you, when you hear growling coming from underneath your bed, and you no longer recognize your face in the mirror. What happens then?
Ghost-hunter Perry Palomino doesn’t have much time to find out. Now, the evil she used to hunt is a lot closer to home. It’s inside of her, taking over her life bit-by-terrifying bit, and there’s only one person who can help her.
If part of her doesn’t kill him first
While ‘Dead Morning Sky’ was the creepiest book for me so far, ‘On Demon Wings’ was by far the most disturbing.
“She’s waking up. Get the bat.” Not exactly the best words to wake up to.”
This book picks up after ‘Lying Season’ poor Perry is licking her wounds, trying to move on from the absolute heartbreak of the demise of what relationship her and Dex had. She has quit ‘Experiment in Terror’ and trying to find some sort of normalcy. But poor Perry has trouble following her regardless.
The reason I found this book to be the most disturbing was because I could relate to Perry on so many levels. I felt Perry’s heartbreak like it was my own. I felt her struggle after a certain event that rocked her world. And most of all her actions leading up to the end of the book finally made sense in light of what was going on with her. Her actions with Maximus (friend or foe?) left me upset and confused, but after gaining perspective I understand why events transpired the way they did. Of course this book was hard with the absence of Dex for the majority, but don’t fret Dex fanatics, he makes his presense known in a BIG way.
“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 first day I met you.”
If the last book was a trainwreck in action, then ‘On Demon Wings’ is the explosion. But don’t worry you will get some laughs from time to time. Especially when Perry uses some colorful language to refer to our lovely Dex.
“He was still a douchecanoe. The douchecanoe who was going to paddle me to safety.”
