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

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!!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

This story is truly interesting. I liked the characters a lot. The story ended with open threads. Physical and emotional wounds to heal as well as other stories to tell.
There was a lot of the "f" word used and there was a lot of overt sexual tension. No sex but definite innuendos. I was also disappointed with the main character who loved one guy but didn't seem too tore up about kissing another until she thought she'd gotten caught. That bothered me.

This is a clean but fun romp in the supernatural realm. The characters are intriguing and the story line believable. There is the age old fight of good verses evil and in this story good overcomes.

This is the second book where I have encountered a character called Rogan, the first time they were male! In this book, Rogan is a she, and she is a gatekeeper in training. She has powers she has yet to master and many secrets being kept from her. This book doesn’t preamble, we are thrown into it at the beginning, with secrets, magic powers and a ‘staged’ kidnapping, which in itself was a huge reveal!

Rogan is a teenage girl living with her adopted siblings and harboring a crush on Max who she doesn’t see like a brother. I wish I could say these are just normal kids with normal problems but they all have a gift. Rather its teleporting or shooting lasers out their eyes they are special. No this isn’t the X-Men but kind of close I guess.

Rogan Is a gatekeeper. She is trained by Castle who took her in as a young child and her guardian angel Max trains her to use her magic for good.

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.

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
