Rebecca Foster
Wick managed to weave a beautiful tale of love, strength, and hope into an environment rich with hatred, cruelty, and desolation. The characters were all deeply flawed, yet still managed to overcome their personal weaknesses to work toward good, and at times selfless, goals.

How many people would be willing to sacrifice themselves for a stranger? How many would ignore a person in need in order to ensure their own survival? What would we do in the same circumstances that the characters were forced...more

I have really been getting into the post-apocolyptic, paranormal fiction lately. This story had demons taking over our world in horrific fashion though thankfully this book did not delve into this too much. This story was mostly a quest for one sister to retrieve certain ingredients for a potion that will heal her poisoned younger sister. Along the way she finds courage, friendship (whether or not they are true friends remains to be seen), an entirely new def...more
Great book. Rebecca and Errol two sisters that survived the Ascension had lived in there tiny neighborhood for almost a year. One day Errol and Rebecca goes out and gathers there rations of Turkey demons for food when it all goes wrong, Errol is badly wounded by a demon. A young demon hunter, Fox, helps them and kills the demon that attacked Errol but she's badly wounded and needs more medical attention than Fox can help with.
Rebecca and Fox than takes Errol to a place were she can get healed bu...more

I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic fiction, so it was with great anticipation that I tackled “Land of No Angels,” by N.R. Wick. After all, the book had all the makings of greatness: a demon apocalypse; few human survivors; a life-saving quest.

Despite the devastation that occurred, Wick creates a world that feels vibrant and alive. One hardly notices the sparse human population among the demons, shadowlings, shades, scouters, and other denizens of the deep that now inhabit the world. In fact, I fo...more

I won a copy of this book in Elle Casey's January Anniversary Indie Book Giveaway.

Great book if you like YA post-apocalypse and/or demon narratives! In this case the apocalypse is of the demons-take-over-the-world variety.

If this book weren't the first in a series, I might say that the fictional world and its mythology are slightly underdeveloped, but since there is at least one sequel already it doesn't bother me too much. I am assuming that this stuff gets more fleshed out in the sequel (which...more
After the demons practically wiped out the human race, Rebecca and her sister Errol have been surviving off turkey demons, scavenging what they can and hiding in their family’s underground tornado bunker. For the past year they’ve stayed close to home, never venturing too far. They haven’t seen any other humans and their knowledge of demons is limited, but that changes when Errol is injured and poisoned by a demon while trying to save a human baby. A boy named Fox helps save their lives during t...more

Recommends it for: Fans of fantasy and horror
I read an advanced copy of this book and it was amazing. Rebecca, the main character, was extremely relatable as a teenage girl forced to live in a world full of demons. Showing both vulnerability and fierceness, she fights her way through a post-apocalyptic world in order to save her sister, Errol, from a poison threatening to kill her. Fox, the lead male character, intrigues with his mysterious past and connections to the demon world as a tracker.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone wh...more
This was a very entertaining find. Unique story with several twists thrown in, although Rebecca's was a little too squeamish in my opinion. It seemed like every smell made her nauseous, but she starts to find her courage at the end. I hope there is a sequel to find out what's in store for her, Errol, and Fox!
Pretty good book. The main character could have seemed a little smarter for me though. She was a little too flighty for me, but I really liked Fox.
