 For years, Sia’s hidden herself in the gnashing forest, dodging her father’s bounty hunters and ignoring the nameless magic in her veins. When she receives a letter from an estranged lover, she returns to the coast she used to call home, within reach of her father’s magical city hovering above the smog and the arranged marriage waiting for her. This place is not somewhere Sia wishes to linger—the land is noxious and filled with rebels, witches, and other humans who become walking corpses when they die. What was intended to be a brief visit turns into a death-bed promise anchoring Sia to Gwaith House for the foreseeable future. She agrees to look after her first love’s human child until her widower proves he can care for his daughter himself. 

 The thing with promises is: Sia can’t break them. No seraph can. At least, not without severe consequences. 

 While navigating the complex feelings she develops for the angry widower and her own grief, Sia becomes entangled in a mysterious string of dismembered corpses roaming the smog and a strange detective who refuses to leave her alone. As the desperate undead draw closer and closer to the child she is sworn to protect, Sia races to find the murderer responsible for creating them. She needs to figure it out quickly, or she may risk falling right back into her father’s scorching hands.

I received The Seldom Wings in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by R&R Book Tours. 

Sia is on a mission to figure out her abilities but while hunting for the answers she receives a message from the past requesting she return. Upon returning she finds her friend and former lover Tova needs her now more than ever. Sia is asked to make a promise that she can't break and take care of her daughter. She stays at Gwaith House with her former lovers husband and his new wife but threats are looming in every direction. Will her father get his hands on her or will something else more sinister capture her. 

I really enjoyed Sia as a character she's this badass character who is morally grey but still very good in her heart. Willing to do what's right even if it's wrong and risks her own life. She's also very loyal to those who she cares about. I found the concept for the seraph interesting how they are broken into different races based on where they lived. I liked Destin the more we get to know him the more I see why Tova loved him so much. 

I was instantly captivated by Sia's story right from the first few pages and I was hooked till the very last page. I devoured The Seldom wings in just two reading sessions because real life decided to get in the way. The characters are easy to connect with you just have to love even if they make you want to yell at the book. 

This is my first book by the author but I'm hooked she has a beautiful style of storytelling which made The Seldom Wings hard to put down. The story balances the action with just the right amount of spice creating a captivating story that sparks the heart as well as the imagination. I loved every moment of Sia's story she's such a kick-ass character and I found her so refreshing and I just loved her. I can't wait for the next book in the series because I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Sia just yet. I'm looking forward to checking out the authors other books.
