Joanne’s life as a young socialite in Savannah, Georgia left her feeling unsatisfied and smothered. She existed to do what was expected of her, never living her life as she envisioned; then she died and became Winged. The Winged are an army that work under the guidance of the Archangels. The dispel Demons that come to wreak havoc on Earth.
Joanne is an amazing character. Becoming Winged was a chance for her to be what she could never be in her former life. She becomes a warrior. Her intelligence and determination make up for any weaknesses she may have. There are so many great characters in this series including her team of fellow Winged, and her love interests Archangels Michael and Raphael.
L.M. Pruitt is the creator of this wonderful series. I was glued to the books. Although I’ve seen the premise of the good versus evil story many times Pruitt does it with flair. There is action, excitement, lust, and everything in between. These novels provoke the reader to feel. Pruitt doesn’t back down from hard subject matter, and she isn’t afraid to write about what some would view as controversial and I absolutely loved that.
The first six books focus mostly on Joanne’s story and how she ascended from a scared young woman joining the Winged to something Legends are made of. The last four books I would consider more of a spin-off focusing on a new generation of Winged, including Joanne’s daughter Olivia. These books do not stand alone and need to be read from the beginning, but it is well worth the journey!
For the first time, all ten books in the international bestselling Winged series are available as a single set.
The story begins with Joanne Watson…
I fell from the Talmadge Bridge the week before I turned thirty.
I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels.
I chose the demons–and the angels.
I chose the Winged.
In the last year, Joanne Watson has died, fallen in love, fought demons and earned her Wings.
None of that compares to what’s coming next….
Life as a member of the Winged isn’t perfect–or easy. There’s always some new camp drama. There’s always a demon ready for a fight. There’s always death.
And now there’s the Resistance.
Joanne must choose again, this time between her fellow Winged and their burning desire for change or the archangels and the eternal vow she made.
Even in the afterlife, one truth remains–everything ends
In the last year, Joanne Watson has survived repeated attempts on her life, wholesale slaughter, and the dissolution on the cornerstone of her new existence.
And the hard times are only beginning.
As the line between right and wrong, friend and foe, and good and evil continue to blur, Joanne is forced to face another irrefutable fact.
The most dangerous demons to fight are the ones you can’t see.
The last six months have seen more death and destruction than any could have predicted.
And the war is only beginning.
With the fight taking Joanne and her friends from city streets to abandoned farms to the center of the earth, only one thing is certain.
The hunters are now the hunted.
The Fallen have one goal–storm the gates of Heaven and reclaim their heritage.
The Winged have one mission–to prevent it all costs.
From North America to Africa, Europe to South American, the stage is being set for the final battle, the one to end all worlds, and with it comes an ugly truth.
Keep your friends close–and your enemies closer.
Everything has led to this.
One final battle.
At the very end–what do you fight for?
And continues with her daughter, Olivia…
“I looked and behold, a white horse, and who he sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Revelation 6:2
After one hundred odd years of peace, the fate of the world once again hangs in limbo.
The First Horseman of the Apocalypse has been released.
The new generation must rise to the challenge before the millennia old dominos start to fall. And the Second Horseman is released.
Where does obligation end–and duty begin?
The first domino has fallen.
Dissent in the military is spreading to the people–old, young, and everyone in between.
As the stakes grow higher, Olivia and her team must fight their own demons in order to stop the Second Horseman.
In war, only one thing is certain–blood will be spilled.
Olivia is gone. Taken by Carestia. I had her in my hand but I couldn’t hold on.
Maybe this is my judgment, my punishment, for denying the truth. For denying how much I love her.
So I’ll hunt for her. No matter how long it takes, no matter where I have to go. I’ll find her. I won’t stop until I do.
And then–then, we’ll finish Carestia.
The number of people who will die unless we find and destroy Mavet once and for all.
Men. Women. Children. Old. Young. Rich. Poor.
Everyone–and everything–is a stake.
Failing isn’t an option.
So we won’t.
