Review: Falling: Girl with Broken Wings by J Bennett

Falling: Girl with Broken Wings by J Bennett
Published Date: January 2012
Publisher: Self
Genre: YA paranormal

The Story: The intellectual challenge of college and the warm embrace of a serious boyfriend have given Maya the wings she needs to break away from her bookish and shy reserve. Her ideal life comes crashing down when she and her boyfriend are accosted by a stranger. A stranger with glowing hands.

Maya's boyfriend is killed. She is kidnapped. Changed.

A rescue comes, but not soon enough.

Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.

And then there’s the song…

Now, Maya must struggle to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, accept her altered condition and learn to trust two vigilante half-brothers she never knew she had. As she joins the battle against a secret network of powerful and destructive beings that call themselves "Angels", Maya vows to find and destroy the one who changed her.

On the bright side, at least Maya's oldest half-brother has stopped trying to kill her.
My Review:  I enjoyed this book.  Angels are bad, almost vampire like, where they suck auras dry.  When Maya finds out that the two guys who rescued her are her brothers, she tries hard to be the person she needs to be.  Well, person isn’t the right word since she’s an “Angel” too.  We’re given a different world where you don’t know if the bad or good will win.  This was a pretty easy read.  It’s a nice change of pace from other paranormal books.
