The first book of the series was the best one. After that it went downhill. It got cheesy and annoying with reading about her interaction with her friends on the second book for like 75% to being unrealistic on the last book. Couldn't relate with the characters. Things just didn't flow. I didn't get how her big transformation was going to change things for the better. I mean her transformation occurred after the big battle. That was confusing. She was supposed to change things but I

I told myself that I wouldn't continue reading past #2 of the series if it shared the predecessor's horrid writing style, snail pace, and lack of meat to an otherwise interesting plot. But, I held out hope till I finished the series; Sadly, the plot never grew wings, even if some characters did.

The series was like someone dangling the most tempting walnut in front of you only for you to crack it and there be no nut!

Wowzers!!!! What a perfect ending for a fantastic series!!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED everything about Gilded Wings. Everything, everything, everything!!!! Cameo did a fantastic job with this book!!! Gilded Wings was an enthralling and enchanting story from start to finish. I literally could not turn the pages fast enough with this book. Oh my gosh!!! I just want to sit here and gush over this book!!! Gilded Wings was NOT predictable at all. I was left gasping I don't know how many times. The ...more

Umm did I read a different book than everybody else? This book was so full of cop outs and contridictions it left my head spinning!! Not to mention all the action happens around 68% so the entire last third of the book I just basically skimmed through because, to be honest, I just didn't care anymore. I thought I'd figured out where she was going at the book's climax (which I said before happened way too soon) which had she gone that way I would have applauded her as putting a great twist into a ...more

This whole series was an entire cheese fest... Not sure how I made it this far? I was really hoping the author would improve as it went along but unfortunately that never happened. Will avoid this author in the future.

I can not even begin to describe how perfect of an ending this book was to the Hidden Wings Series!! It made me fall in love with the characters again!! I've missed reading about Emma and Kade and could not put this book down. (Probably not good considering tomorrow is Monday but anything for this series and Cameo). This series will forever be a favorite and I can't believing I just read the ending. The amount of tears I have made tonight are unreal! (Also laughs from Dom). I one day wish to ...more

Eeeks. This book...I wanted to like it, I really did, but so many things were off. Like REALLY THAT JUST HAPPENED, HOW DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?!? I like the premise of this novel, I truly do, but everything was rushed, ill explained, forced, etc. AND if I had to hear the word giggled one more time I thought I was going to shoot myself. You were just in a fight for gods sake, why are you giggling five minutes later like a five year old. Also, why does Emma blush every time a guy makes a comment ...more

Oh my goodness! What an epic finale! Hidden Wings was and is one of my fave series ever. There were so many moments in this book that made me cry out in joy and sadness, and laugh out loud and even grinning like a Cheshire Cat. Cameo has an uncanny ability to write magic and pull the reader in and ensnare them so they are hooked on her words forever. Everything I felt was tied up into one neat and perfect conclusion.

Unremarkable book! The story line and characters are amazing. Cameo never disappoints. Truly a amazing love stories. I highly recommend this series.
I’d just rather read 📚
What an amazing and talented author! All her books are cleverly written to the point it sucks you into the world she created with just words and makes you feel as if you're living it!
3.5 stars.

Emma's transformation is getting closer. She is running out of time to find a solution to the agreement she has with Lucifer. Despite Lucian stepping up his attacks, Emma decides to sneak out and try to travel to Midgard to get some answers from the angel who turned Kade mortal. (that was a waste of time) (view spoiler)

oh. my. goodness. i cannot even to begin to describe the love i have for this book series and the characters. one thing that really bothered me though, was that somehow lia's name was spelled differently ONLY in the last book.. it was spelled leah? i obviously got over it, but really that shouldn't have happened. as i complained in the other four (including the novella) reviews i've written, the typos and errors were so prominent that i was annoyed reading the same sentence trying to find out ...more

Best. Book. EVER!!!! Cameo is so beautifully brilliant in the art of story-telling that has suspense, drama, romance and action. The story weaves a stunning tale of triumphs and tragedies, that make you weep and want to cheer all at the same time!!! Cameo could not have written a more beautiful ending to such an incredible journey and story.

Honestly, when I first started reading this series I almost gave it up 5 chapters in. The whole "I just met him and I think I'm in love with him" thing going on between Emma and Kade gave off too much of a Twilight vibe. It felt, in one word, unbelievable. And being a realist with fantasy loving tendencies I felt leery that the story was just going to end up being another cliche romance where the protagonist forgets all of her morals, self preservation and ... well... intelligence for the sake ...more

Good continuation of the series

Enjoyed this 4th book of the Hidden Wings series. This book takes us through the time to Emma's 18th birthday. She is still being pulled between Ethon and Kade...and the time to make a decision is nearing. To make worse, Lucian has unleashed the creatures of Hell to track her and kill her in his thirst to kill all Nephillium. With the fight between Lucifer and Lucian is coming right towards her, Emma plots to get out of the agreement with Lucifer with everyone

Utterly spectacular and exquisitely stunning, Gilded Wings far surpassed all of my expectations and hopes. My imagination was given a wonderful gift as it was taken on the wildest adventure that I have ever known or dreamed about. The evolution of the magnificent characters in this story was beyond amazing, and I was absolutely thrilled to see how this marvelous story unfolded before me. I experienced the complete array of human emotions as I walked each and every heavy yet joyous step ...more

I must admit that this book was the best of the four/three books, but only because of the ending. The start of the story was still flat and Emma was still portrayed as someone whiny, but she was getting better.

The ending certainly blew me away because I was just reading the same old flat lines when suddenly there was a spike and there comes the action I have been looking for.

Oh Ethon, sorry for doubting you because of what Bane said. I felt that you should have had more time, but you were dealt

Flippin; Cameo let's send us on a emotional rollercoaster, because that's just cool! Kade he's still protective, "Emma.You're going to need to fight," he spoke loudly, thrusting his dagger into the neck of a darkling snapping at his arm. "Don't you dare let them take you." Kade likes to make sure his woman has something to look forward too, "I'm real alright. And once you heal, I'll show you exactly how real I am." Even though it's bittersweet to see this series end I'm glad it kinda ended to be ...more

I'm really sad to say I was disappointed with this book. I got half way through the book and just couldn't finish it. While I really enjoyed the first book in this series, the subsequent books seemed to just get worse. The plot was dragged out, the dialogue seemed too formal and stilted, I got very annoyed by the love triangle, and everything was cliche. I no longer felt any investment in the characters or to find out what happens at the end. Maybe I will eventually finish this book, but I ...more

What an amazing ending to this beautifully written piece of magic Cameo created! This book had it all. It made me cry my eyes out, feel an extraordinary amount of hate for one character, laugh, and feel small tingly goosebumps on my arms when reading heart filled scenes! Cameo has a way with words and this book ( in my opinion ) was one of her best masterpieces. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves an adventurous, romantic, action packed book!

If u have gotten this far in the hidden wings series then I don't have to tell u how much of an amazing writer Cameo is but she not only raised the bar with this book she blew all her and other books out of the water!!!!!
This book grabs ur attention from the first sentence and keeps it till the last word!!!

Awesome finish to this series!!! One of my favorites to date!! This quote from the book is one of the best and it made me literally LOL.
"Thomas stepped forward with Lia in his arms. She was lying limp, her mouth wide open. Did you put the sleeper on her? I gasped. No, she did this herself. She fainted as soon as she saw your wings". That made me laugh so hard. Great book!!

this series had the potential to be great but was let down by many contradictions and IMHO would have benefited from someone going through as many of the sentences seemed liked after thoughts and didn't really fit with what was previously written.

Gilded Wings by Cameo Renae is technically not the last book in the Hidden Wings series, but I believe the last one is actually a standalone. I'm not actually quite sure. Anyway, Gilded Wings is the last book where villain Lucian is concerned.

Okay, so, I felt this book was better than the third one, but not as good as the second. The second is still my favorite. The love scenes between Emma and Ethon or Emma and Kade felt drawn out and I didn't really feel any passion. The bond kept on being the
