Finished it!!!! I stayed up all night to finish this book. At first I was a little skeptical, this books goes on for chapters about everything that goes on in the main character’s life and does not get to the plot. I was close to putting it down. Right when I was ready to give up, the author surprises you and the whole book takes a twist. Let me tell you, the ending of the book is not expected! Then the very last chapter of the book was a game changer, now I have to order the next book! However, ...more

First off this book is truly captivating. Once I started I did not want to stop. The characters are so strong and mysterious, that it keeps you hooked from the first page. It really brings out many feelings, I laughed and cried reading this book. Now with that being said, there are many things in this book that confused me. The characters, backgrounds and information, always seemed to leave something extra that left me questioning many things. But I do hope to have my answers within the next two ...more

DNF around 75% through. Bummer.
I just couldn’t bring myself to finish this book. Absolutely nothing happened in the first 100+ pages of the story...literally. There wasn’t even a whole lot of world building to make up for that lag. Even after Claire met Adam it went nowhere fast. Then by the flip of a page they’re madly in love with just a few cryptic words between them?! I mean I know it’s fiction but there was absolutely no connection or chemistry between the two! It felt very contrived to sa

I was challenged by a friend to read at least one #YA (Young Adult) book as a "bucket-list" thing to do. Surprisingly, I have gotten really absorbed within the book from the very beginning. I really like how this story unfolds and I am enjoying the characters. I look forward to finishing this book and for the remaining books in this trilogy to be published. ...more

A Must-read for the fantasy genre!

White (The Wings Trilogy Book 1) by Angelina J. Steffort (Author)

Things are not always as they appear to be. In this captivating fantasy, you will meet very realistic characters, captivated between bad and good. This is a passionate romance which is worth the read.

To start, this book was intriguing and very captivating. It’s been a while since I can say I’ve picked up a book that I could really get into and get excited about. Once I got started I couldn’t put it down. I only wished I had more time in my day to read. The characters, backgrounds locations all felt real, and vividly described. The feelings and emotions impressively well put together and eloquently structured. I was swept off my feet, glued to the pages at each romantic paragraph. In fact, I ...more

With Claire's parents gone, she is uprooted and moves to Aurora with her sister. Here, she finds a new fascination with graveyards and prefers to spend her time there. This is where she meets the good-looking Adam.

There's something mysterious about Adam and it only draws Claire in closer. They have a connection that neither can explain, but it isn't instant love which I really liked. But Adam's has secrets that put Claire's life at risk. A secret that involves an old war between demons and angel

I really liked the book. It was a nice story a different kind of angel book than I’ve read. Adam Learning he’s an angel. Falling inlove with Claire. I will say the story is a little long and taking too long for things to happen. The ending I was like omg no way!!!! I’m still trying to figure out why Ben is so mean towards Claire and hope that gets explained a little better. And I don’t understand why no one is questioning why Claire has a guardian angel? Why he saves her all the time from troubl ...more

White is a thoroughly entertaining tale of Good vs Evil. Claire and Adam are two young adults living ordinary lives. When they meet, Claire unknowingly becomes a catalyst between the forces of good and evil. People and events are not always what they appear to be. The ending came as a complete shock! I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Sigh, I really really wanted to like White, but in the end, it was not a book for me. Insta-love, immature & questionable behavior, plus what appears to be 4 possible love interests for just one girl-- not very appealing.

I did enjoy the settings (those were well written) and a few side characters, but it was not enough to make up for the rest of the book.

W but different but a really great read!

I was undecided at first as to whether I'd like the differences the author used about angels and demons (from other series along the same genre) but, after the first 2 chapters I was into this story. Loved the idea of angels feeling their souls mate even tho that person hasn't been met as yet. Also, the idea of a supernatural who seems a bit vulnerable is somehow appealing to me.
So much so that I bought the 2nd in this series immediately after finishing t

I came across this via a social media ad and thought it sounded good. I am so glad I gave it a try. Claire is an average girl, going to school and hanging with her friends when she meets a really cute guy while at the cemetery. After a few false starts, they end up together and that’s where the story really begins. I can’t wait to start the second book, and am going to have to force myself not to start it tonight (11:15pm) so I’m not overly tired at work tomorrow.

Excellent Angels and Demons story

I would have given this a 5 star but I felt the beginning was sort of drawn out in the first chapter, then I continued and started liking the story more. I did like the characters and the story line. I felt this could have been more and I am hoping it is in the 2nd book. A different type of Angels and Demons book and worth reading.

Slow beginning, but then... became un-put-down-able! Great cliffhanger!
Protagonist is rather immature, whiny, and selfish in the beginning despite the tragedy she faced. But, she is probably a reflection of us all in some way. I did enjoy the second half of the book and will continue the series.

I was totally captivated by the world that unfolds in this wonderful novel which starts off in such an ordinary, normal setting and then continues on to quite literally grow wings. I'm already looking forward to the sequels to be able to immerse myself once more in Claire's universe! ...more

White is the next book to read

The story starts slows the build up is really good. This book is about Angel and Human love. It has highs and lows. At times it was so unfair on how much emotional pain and loss the main character Claire had to deal with

Sweet, romantic, epic. Heartbreaking

I loved it, though despaired at the ending. Like the protagonist, I was in denial up to the end, then it was over. UNTIL I was left with a sprinkling of hope!

I love that the author provides real feelings in an unreal setting. If you know loss of a loved one this book will speak volumes to you. Thank you for making me feel everything I felt while reading this.

I haven't read many angel/demon-human romances. This, perhaps, keeps it fresh for me when I come across one.

I was captivated by the story. I liked Adam a lot. Claire, not as much. She was immature, especially for the experiences she had gone through. She acted and made decisions that I would expect from someone younger or one who had been sheltered from life. I thought she accepted the angel/demon part too easily for one never exposed to it. Perhaps, it will come out in another part of the tril
