I was part of the promotional blog tour for this book!

Wings of Flesh and Bones was an action-packed read, full of excitement at every corner. In the past, I have had bad experiences from reading angel books, but the writing style by the author Cathrina really suited me. All of the supernatural events such as Rogan being taken by the witch, who claims to be her mother, made the storyline interesting and engaging. The pacing was quick, with a wide range of characters and visual setting. I liked th

Wings of Flesh and Bones is a fantasy adventure about angels and demons. Written in third person about the story follows Rogan and Max, switching between the two every chapter. Full of action, the plot rarely slows in pace. The angels fight demons and the action never stops, keeping you flipping the pages.

The changes in viewpoints confused me rather than keeping me on the edge of my seat, as it probably was intended to. A lot of the novel Rogan is left in the dark about her ancestry, amo

Rogan is uncertain of her place in this world, and her over protective guardian never lets her out to use her training as a Gatekeeper. When her mentor, and secret crush, Max invites her to sneak out with him, she jumps at the chance. But Rogan had no idea where he was leading her, that she would meet someone forgotten from her past, or that her world will never be the same. And Max had no idea the mistake he made bringing Rogan out, one he may pay with his life to fix.



This was a harder story

With a row of wonderful characters and fantastical world building, this is dramatic and engaging read with tons of delightful surprises.

Rogan is a Gatekeeper, and a 17-year-old orphan, who knows basically nothing about her past. Although curious, she keeps herself more than busy fighting dangerous creatures from the outer realms whose intentions in the human realm are anything but good. When her guardian Max sneaks her out of their home one night to visit a club, she finds herself kidnapped by h

A Must Read for Fans of YA Lit.
This tale is set in a dystopian, fantasy world and evolves around a group of young gatekeepers trained to keep aliens out of their realm. The author gives a foretaste of what is to come with a horror scene at the beginning as Max struggles to save his girlfriend, Rogan, from a messy fight with a giant demon. This fast-paced, gripping, and yet mysterious opening sets the tone, atmosphere and pace right up to the satisfying end.
The author writes well and has created

Gahhhh I seriously loved this story!!! Can never get enough of the supernatural!

The authors mesmerising words pulled me into the story and didn't let me go till the very end. Jam-packed with action, romance, characters you'll just fall in love with and plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and wanting more. I was kept on the edge of my seat from the very first chapter.

One fantasy story I highly recommend.

Exciting adventure

Angels and Demons and other things that go bump in the night! An exciting adventure tale but one that keeps to the main theme. Choose between the dark and the light. It matters for eternity! Great story!!

Amazing blend of fantasy elements and narration. Although I felt it was more of a mytho-fiction rather than being a fantasy. But overall amazing read!

This story took me on a roller coaster ride of adventure, romance, magic and growth. Rogan is an amazing heroine, we see her develop and learn so much during the book. From an impetuous, stubborn, ready to defend the world young woman, to someone who thinks through the situation before acting.

The character’s dialogue had me chuckling with the sarcastic lines. A paranormal tale that kept me enthralled and turning the pages to see what would happen next. I’m not going to share any spoilers, but th

Wonderful!

I simply loved this story and can't wait to read further "episodes" for lack of a better word. There were some proofreading errors where an extra word was shown twice, both before and after another word but not too many. I would recommend this story to anyone who likes tales of angels and demons.

Excellent story!

Catherine Constantine does a very good job of creating a world of fantasy and transporting you there. She puts into the story and takes you on a journey that you just have to read u til the end. This is a must read book.

A child of prophecy to save the realms...

Rogan is a progeny of multiple races and also the child of prophecy that she knows nothing about. She has the blood of good and evil in her and needs to make a choice to follow the dark or light. Which will she choose?

This was my first book by Cathrina, I was intrigued by the blurb - it looked to be a good dose of paranormal with a mix of young adult - now YA is not really my thing, but I liked the sound of the story and so gave it a go.

The story centers around Rogan, orphaned and raised by Castle to be a Gatekeeper along with a group of other young adults, all with special powers, in an attempt to keep unwanted beings out of Earth's realm. Castle tries to keep her on a tight leash, but Rogan has a mind of he

This novel started off on a good foot, got a little sidetracked right before the end, and then started wrapping things up well. Rogan was rebellious and always wanted to escape the overprotectiveness of her uncle Castle, but she didn’t realize what she would be getting into. Max is also interesting as he and Rogan both love each other but neither wants to admit it. Seeing their romance bloom throughout this novel was definitely special.

The action scenes were a bit confusing at times with how fas

At first I thought the lingo was a little difficult to understand. But once I understood it, this book is awesome.
I mean we have gatekeepers to get the demons out and what not.
Rogan is a 17 year old female who is bent on breaking the rules. Because she wants to be like everyone else and patrol on her own. However Castle the father figure has his reasons for keeping her protected and wanting someone with her at all times.

But when that doesnt seem to work, Max and Castle scare her some to get her

I wasn’t in love with Wings of Flesh and Bones. It’s not a bad book or story, it just wasn’t to my personal tastes. The reader is teased with little bits and pieces of information throughout the entire book that, rather than make me more interested in finishing the story, annoyed me.

I also felt as though the story was “quilted” together. As in, bits and pieces of story were sewn together onto a single cohesive arc. It was a bit disjointed at times, and the jumps between locations and people got

Where to even start! First off once buying this book, you will need to start it early on a day you have nothing else to do because you will not be able to put in down. Within pages I was hooked and obsessed with the characters (I hate when it takes a while to get the interesting stuff- not a problem in this book!). This book left me with knots in my stomach and my heart in my throat (I know avid book readers know what I'm talking about), wondering at every page what was going to happen next, try ...more

I wanted to like this so much more than I did. It is not a bad read - it just somehow feels incomplete. Not in plot, that is there. It is a complete story, but there is something missing in the world building. There are jumps in perspective, and quick cuts from action but there is just that something that is missing to make it totally cohesive. There is never any real explanation in the rules of magic, the different dimensions, or the bigger picture. There are hints of all of that - but never an ...more

I don't know how I feel about this. There were good it's where I was enthralled and couldn't stop reading and then there were lulls where I wished the chapter to end.
My favourite characters were Max and Shae. Their scenes always redeemed the book and cheered me up.
Rogan is an odd one because I feel I should like her because she's the protagonist but there's something, I can't put my finger on, that just leaves me cold.

Rogan’s parents died when she was young and she was taken in by her Uncle and trained to be a gatekeeper. As she trains with others like herself, she is mentored by an angel named Max who she has fallen in love with. Rogan wants to patrol on her own like the other trainees but Castle and Max continue to prevent it.

This Young Adult story is a good read for those looking for romance, secrets, demons, witches and angels. Rogan faces many challenges that teens will relate to in their world which kee

A strong introduction to Cathrina Constantine's writing. She has created a fantastic universe, which kept me wanting to read on; I loved the depth and the characters, and the chemistry between Rogan and Max was sizzling.

I debated long and hard about giving this three or four stars, because I truly did enjoy it and get engrossed with the story and the world; however, the pacing felt a little off to me and it was just too quick and under-developed towards the end. There were occasions where it fel
