Somewhere between falling and flying… you will find the truth.

The truth is being unveiled and Iris’ past is unlike anything she ever could have guessed. For Stryx, finding your missing half doesn’t always mean finding your mate. Iris has been missing a part of herself for so long that no one is sure she will be able to put the pieces back together and her ever reliable dre...more

Revenge, a need for understanding, and learning to lean on others as necessary whilst figuring out who to trust appear to be common trends in much of today's fiction. What happens, however, when you throw in a secret society, love, twisted and tangled webs of deception, and a twist that may take your breath away? Eyrie.

Overall, I give this book a 4 out of 5, and here is why:

The Good
Eyris is the beautiful sequel to Owlet, a story about a young lady who is trying to figure out who she is. Not an e...more

**3.5 stars**

Iris continues grow and develop as a Stryx. She is a member of a society where the people have a soul that is half human and half bird. There are representatives of the different members of the bird species. Iris was thought to be an owlet, but now she finds that she is something more, she is special and was born to lead.

This book takes a closer look at the Stryx society. The government and social structure is defined. As Iris learns more, she is not pleased with all that she finds...more

So if you have read book one, I highly recommend you re-read it before you read this one. Otherwise you'll end up like me who read it awhile ago and some of the details are a wee bit foggy and I have no fracking clue what is going on.

I didn't have time to re-read Owlet fully, but I skimmed it and it helped. Kind of.

But I really liked Owlet. This is a young adult series and it's about Stryx (which is like, half human/half bird) and they aren't really shifters because they don't turn into the bi...more

Eyrie by Emma Michaels is the second in the Society of Feathers series, continuing the dramatic tale of Iris and her journey to discovering the truth that has been hidden from her nearly her whole life.

Told in a poetic style narrative, the story begins right after the first novel Owlet with Iris learning more about what she is and what has happened in her past. She must harness her Owlet abilities if she is going to survive in this whole new world of people with the souls of humans and aves. The...more

Original review here: http://offbeatvagabond.blogspot.com/2014/01/eyrie-blog-tour-book-review-10-amazon.html

Eyrie is book two in the Society of Feather series. This is a series that is far from your average YA read. Michaels has created such a unique series. Our main character, Iris, has made some huge discoveries that her father has kept from her. She has found out that she is a Stryx. This means she has two souls (half human/half bird). All Stryx have a special power or ability and it all depe...more

Eyrie is the second book in the Society of Feathers series which is completely different from any other paranormal stories I have ever read. This series is about people who have half the soul of a bird, or in some cases, their body holds the soul of a human and the soul of a bird. They do not shape shift, but rather their lives are changed to reflect characteristics of their aves (avian soul). The only aspect of them physically that might show that they are not quite human is their eyes. At time...more
The plot to this series remains okay, quick paced with suspense and a chilling end. The intricate language weaves through the story and teaches us new ways to speak. The intelligence and way this world works creates a good plot. The engaging POVs progress all the feels when we see things in different perspective. she write so we fully see meaning with Iris and connecting to our real life. Memories hold truth and discovery dangerous to know. The love is so powerfully bounded, a big part of the st...more

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of Eyrie in exchange for my review as a part of this blog tour.

Iris is an Owlet, and a powerful one at that. But she thinks different from the others of her kind, believing that all of them are born equal. In Iris' world each of her kind has two halves to their soul, an Aves and a human half, and depending which Aves a person has, they have different abilities. No one knows who Iris is yet, or that she even does, yet...more

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Eyrie is the second book in the Society of Feathers series by Emma Michaels. This book was your classic second book. The kind that's purpose is to set up and prepare for the next book. There was a lot of detail that went into the building of this story, and it was a tad slow at times. There was a few key things that really grabbed me while reading, but there seemed to be a lot of filler as well. With that being said, the world within this series continues to b...more
I jumped in to reading this second book in the series before reading book one and had no problem picking up the storyline.

I was pleasantly surprised to read about this alternate world that incorporates a paranormal bird element. However, not really shapeshifting or flying or literal physical traits - more like the essence of.

Explanations and analysis are given as the main character and her entourage navigate the politics of their world.

Lots of friendship bonding and some romance also grabbed my...more

Let me start off by saying, if you have not read the first book in this series, Owlet, then put this book down and go read it first. You really need to read the first book so that the second book makes sense. In the second book we pick up with Iris trying to figure out everything from the lies she had been told. She has to figure out how to right some wrongs. Those who are helping and guiding her on this journey are also a little wary because she has the power to make decisions for good or evil....more
