Black Lament (Black Wings by Christina Henry 1 LUCIFER PUT HIS ARM AROUND ME. IT FELT COMFORTING, like the act of a parent, a parent I’d always wanted—a father. IT FELT COMFORTING, like the act of a parent, a parent I’d always wanted-a father. The air filled with the scent of cinnamon. It reminded me so strongly of Gabriel that the tears that always hovered beneath the surface spilled over. Lucifer said nothing, only held me as I wept. After a long while, it felt like there were no more tears to be cried.

Ну китайцы, молодцы!!!

As an Agent of Death, Madeline Black deals with loss every day. But when tragedy touches her own life, Maddy will have to find the strength within to carry on… Devastated and grieving, Maddy unexpectedly finds hope with the discovery that she is pregnant. But Maddy’s joy is short lived when Lucifer informs her that he wants the baby, hoping to draw on the combined power of two of his bloodlines. Maddy is determined that her grandfather will never have her child, but she’s not sure what she can do to stop him. Being pregnant is stressful enough, but Maddy suddenly finds herself at odds with the Agency—forbidden from meddling in the affairs of the supernatural courts. When a few of her soul collections go awry, Maddy begins to suspect that the Agency wants to terminate her employment. They should know by now that she isn’t the sort to give up without a fight…

I've kept up with this series and had this book on pre-order for months. I was that interested. I enjoy the different spin on this book, the main character is an angel, escorting souls to 'the door'. The characters that continue in each book make this series fun. Elves, demons, angels, werewolves, a gargole, even in this book a Hob oh yes and a Grim.

****SEMI SPOILER****

The book starts a week after her husband Gabriel dies. So she's still in mourning. I understand her emotional stability and strength is threatened by this pregnancy. . . And frequent mentions of being hungry, feeling weak and nauseous do happen. Yet she's still able to fight against all possible odds and pull through.

I didn't feel the connection between her friends and her as I did in the last books. Maybe because she's always hanging out with Nathaniel. As per Lucifer's orders. While she doesn't trust him she still works with him and does save his life -- There is a turn around in her relationship with him. I doubt a relationship between the two is going anywhere but there was a softening on Madeline's part. And while he seems to have an about face, he enjoyed torturing that Agency agent Byron a bit too much. And while Maddie allowed Nathaniel to torture Byron. .. . I did get the feeling her forming infant is influencing her actions. Not just being a protective mom but the genetics of her infant. I just get the impression her baby is putting his 3 cents in and influencing his mom -- Wings beating and all.

Maybe it was the guys being so agreeable to do everything Maddie said. No one was there to point her in the right direction and we all know her gargole sidekick is more interested in his food than enforcing good advice. She desperately needs a strong authority figure in her life. Someone she respects and can protect her from herself.

So the Agency she 'works' for sends her on an assignment they knew she couldn't handle. This snowballs into missed reports, skipping a work day, and the CEO on her case. What results is understandable but now she's jobless. She could barely make ends meet was it was, now she is unemployed.

I gave this a 4 star review. The characters didn't shine as in the other books. While Maddie was successful in eleminating a few threats, by the end of the book she doubled those threats. She made her situation worse, not any better, and she ignored warnings, just went ahead and did what she felt was best. She hasn't learned that revenge doesn't solve anything. Those that want to do evil will keep on doing it -- It isn't always her call to step in and take care of it. Yes, the agency didn't live up to her expectations. Life is like that. Not everything runs smoothly and the way you want it. Leaving may not solve the problem, but that's what she did. Did she change anyone's mind in the Agency? The people she rescued? We're left to wonder . . . While her city is being torn apart by Vampires.

While I enjoyed the book it just moved slow. The time frame was from a week after Gabriel died until what -- About a week later. I didn't see a lot of progress, I saw a regression in Maddie and how she's handling those she cares about and about her life. Her constant hang up on sleep and food, while normal in a pregnant person, seemed a bit much when there was so much else going on.

Summary: The Retrievers are coming to get Maddy, so Nathaniel sends her through a portal to... Well, Maddy has no idea where. She is lost in an unknown land, and there is not another human in sight. When water demons attack her, and she spies her first real life Dragon, Maddy realizes that she truly is all alone...

Review: The Black Wings novels are short, but the latest installment was an enjoyable start to my day.

The world buildings at times can be convoluted. I am not sure where the supernaturals are from all the time, and what their motivations are. But I believe that is how Henry is trying to make us feel. Maddy can't really trust anyone offering her favors, Especially not the four brothers, Lucifer, Puck, Alerian, and Daharan. Daharan is the 4th brother we just met, the most powerful, and the only one Maddy trusts. The question for us then is: who are the four brothers? What does it mean? Sometimes I feel that more questions come up than the number of answers we get.

Maddy's story shines through the complexity of her characters. Maddy herself is very complex, walking the fine line between good and evil. Has she gone too dark? Is she taking too many risks? Some characters think so while other characters relish in her dark side. Maddy's two sides I think are parallel to her remaining love interests. Nathaniel represents her going dark, J.B. represents her humanity.

Another strength of Henry's is the pace of her overall plot. Through most of the book, the story moves at her normal fast place. Not so fast that it's confusing but just enough to keep the excitement up. The only part where it felt slow was the beginning, when Maddy was off by herself. The characters really make the plot move in these books, and Maddy being on her own was a tad bit boring.

All in all, I enjoy Maddy's adventures immensely. I am looking forward to all the questions being answered. Urban Fantasy fans will enjoy the books along with me. Just make sure you start from the beginning, or else you'll be confused.

Quote:
“It’s better if I don’t make grand gestures,” Puck said. “It tends to draw unwanted attention.”
“And it doesn’t draw unwanted attention when I do it?” I asked.
“Well, yes, it might,” Puck admitted. “But when you do it, ancient beings don’t construe your actions as an act of war. They just think you’re flying off the handle— again.”

Maddy's adverture this time around begins when the Retrievers come to take her soul and Nathaniel pushes her through a portal "to a safe place" to save her life. It's a strange, not especially friendly planet and she just wants to find a way get home. In this story she meets Daharan, the oldest brother to Lucifer, Puck and Alerian(sp?) and learns just how much she's being manipulated.

There is plenty of action and emotion in this tale as Maddy is forced to embrace her darker powers. Most of the regulars are on hand and we meet a new person who looks to be an ongoing problem.

I believe I enjoyed this story more than the last book, but I have to say I'm getting bored with the series. Take that with a grain of salt because I've gotten bored with a number of long running series in the past year or two. Maddy just keeps getting more powerful and regularly wins fights against others expected to be more powerful than her. It wouldn't be much of a story if she lost, but it's expected, leaving only "how" as something to anticipate.

But overall a decent, well written story and I'd give it 3.5 stars.
