Publisher's Summary

Growing up is hell.

Scarlet is a 16-year-old girl with no friends, living with her single father. The one thing her life has none of is excitement. That's until she meets a naked stranger beside the lake. Then everything changes.

Scarlet discovers that she is not just an ordinary 16-year-old. In fact the fate of the world rests on her shoulders, and it seems like she's one of the bad guys. A weapon.

Pretty soon Scarlet is going to miss her old boring life but will have to accept that it is gone forever. At least she's made a friend - a demon named Sorrow. He's one of the bad guys, too.

Only evil can save her now.

    "The story was good but..."

    ...I found the narrator had only one voice. As in, all the characters sounded the same. But, in saying that it was still enjoyable.

    "Great story and narration"

    A highly recommended story from one of my favourite authors. The book is both entertaining and believable, with realistic characters. One I am definitely going to recommend to my teenage children.

    Nigel Patterson's narration is perfect as always, he is easily one of the most consistent narrators in the business.

    "Excellent story can't wait for the sequel"
    If you could sum up Wings of Sorrow in three words, what would they be?

    The story is original very well written and the narrator does an amazing job of bringing sorrow and the other characters to life
    I think that this is Iains best work to date


    What other book might you compare Wings of Sorrow to, and why?

    I try not to buy books that are the same story wise so this book stands alone although the angels and demons theme is touched on forget everything else you have read as Iain rewrites the normal preconceptions


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene where sorrow learns his true identity and then makes his choice about his future


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Angels and demons as you have never seen them before


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone that likes a fast paced original story I recommend this the narrator tells the story well adding depth to the characters

    Story
    "Loved!"

    I've read a few of this author's other books and this is definitely different to his other works but just as good.

    Scarlet Thomas and her dad move to Redlake for his work and because it's a new one, her dad is working all hours. Scarlet has no friends yet but has a job in a book store, which she enjoys. While walking home one evening by the lake, she comes across a naked man who seems to have lost his memory. For some reason she takes him home but he disappears when her dad comes home. Next day she is again walking near the lake when a stranger approaches, he calls her the spark and says she needs to be destroyed. His touch burns her but the man from the night before suddenly appears and saves her. She runs to the book shop and what is revealed will change her life forever.

    This was such a unique book and one I devoured. I pretty much everything about it. Characters: Loved Scarlet, she is a strong girl but also just looking to be safe and loved. Sorrow, it's the name Scarlet gives him because he can't remember his own. He is there to keep Scarlet safe and takes his job seriously! He is a mysterious enigmatic character and I need to know more!! Then we have the "bad" guy. Gosh this dude is like the terminator cause he kept coming back and was nearly invincible! So cool!! ;) All of these were well written and developed and easily likable.

    In all, this was an action packed, unique and gripping book. I am totally invested in these characters and need to know more, I need to see what happens Scarlet and Sorrow and just what is up with her mother?? In other words, I need book 2 now!!!!

    Nigel Patterson, what can I say!! He has such an easy voice to listen to and made for an amazing Sorrow!! He even had a good female voice. He really brought this story to life and I hope he narrates the next.

    *I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

    Story
    "What defines a "Bad guy/girl"?"

    Scarlett is a 16 year old girl, living with her single father. She is a loner, and her father is clueless how to deal with a teen girl. As she walks home from school one day, she comes across a naked man by the shores of the lake in town. So starts an adventure Scarlet could never have imagined. An angel, for lack of a better term, is hunting her because she has forbidden power, even if she doesnt know it. The naked man, who Scarlet names Sorrow, is actually a "demon" sent to protect her and make sure she survives. What follows is a harrowing race against time, with a secret society with ulterior motives, magic, a maniacal "good" guy trying to kill Scarlet, and a climactic finale that will leave the reader satisfied, but waiting for the next installment.

    The characters are well written, with snappy dialogue and a plot that has some interesting twists and turns. No one is who they seem, and there are surprises aplenty.

    Nigel Patterson does his usual excellent job narrating, handling all the variations of British, Welsh and Scottish accents with a deft touch, and keeping the narrative flowing with grace and character.

    I was given a copy of this book by the Narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review throught Audiobookboom.

    "Wings of Sorrow"

    This was a good book,not what I expect from Mr Wright.I felt it was more a YA novel.Nigel Patterson is wonderful narrating this story of a girl that doesn't know she is a witch.There is a demon out to protect her and an Angel out to get her.It felt like a lot of other books I have read lately.
    I was given this book for an honest review

    What did you love best about Wings of Sorrow?

    Sorrow was my favorite, he was kind and lovable. His naivete is endearing.


    Have you listened to any of Nigel Patterson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    "Excellent rendition of a great story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I found the pace quite right to allow my imagination to keep along with the storyline. This is a great story and was performed wonderfully.


    What other book might you compare Wings of Sorrow to and why?

    Can't think of anything similiar.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like when Sorrow initially comes out of the water naked and totally clueless that this is not the norm. I found myself chuckling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, yes.
