“Black Wings sounds like a strange brew of The Bad Seed and dark magic that will keep us turning pages late into the night.”
When Briella Blake is invited to attend Parkhaven, a private school for the gifted, her sinister genius rears its ugly head in ways her mother Marian cannot deny are a little strange. And then there’s Briella’s relationship with Onyx, a raven that’s just as smart as her. Restricting her daughter from the bird does nothing to stop their interactions, as Briella experiments with the ability to recreate and save a person’s entire set of memories.
Marian becomes pregnant with a sibling Briella doesn’t want, and now she’s convinced there’s something wrong with with her eldest daughter. The strange sickness and unexplained deaths … surely they can’t be Briella’s fault, right? With Onyx helping her like some kind of paranormal sidekick? The whole thing just sounds ridiculous.
As the complications with her pregnancy build and take hold of Marian’s health, she begins to realize that the worst thing isn’t if something terrible happens to your child …
It is that the most terrible thing is your child.
