Plot
(by Goodreads)

A dead man’s warning. A lost plane wreck. A buried truth.

A dire warning from beyond the grave leaves Emelynn Taylor questioning her loyalties. Did someone she loves commit an unforgivable act of treachery? In her quest for answers, Emelynn opens a painful cold case knowing its resolution could destroy two families.

What she finds tests Emelynn’s integrity as the leadership changes hands within the Tribunal Novem, the powerful body that rules her kind. When confronted with betrayal and lies, Emelynn must follow her moral compass, even if it means losing the man she loves and alienating her Flier friends.

And when the terrible truth is unearthed, Emelynn is set on a collision course with two titans and a battle she can’t possibly win.

The sixth book in The Gift Legacy series, Wings of Prey is a thriller that skirts the edges of reality in a world within our own. Hold on tight and escape the ordinary: take flight with Emelynn Taylor.

Teaser


After I disconnected, Sam asked, “You’ll be where?”

“At the caucus. Not that I can influence anything – the leadership is preordained to change hands every five years – but it’s important to Mason. Moral support, I think.”


My Opinion

This book reunites the readers with Emelynn Taylor; together with Sam she needs to find the truth about a plane crash – at all cost.

With “Wings of Prey”, J. P. McLean has once again created a thrilling combination of mystery, paranormal, urban fantasy, and a touch of romance with steamy situations. It is a very compelling read centred on Emelynn, drawing you close to her. J. P. McLean paints a clear picture of the main characters’ mindsets while the story evolves. In this sixth even more thrilling story, I was again very close to Em – again an invisible friend and ally; trying to find the truth with her. Emelynn is complex, the other characters are also skillfully elaborated and of sufficient depth, believable with their flaws and virtues. The story is a very nicely woven combination of several genres, has a wonderful flow; it was easy to get hooked. I had a great time reading “Wings of Prey”. Reading the final book in a series can be sad; in this series it was extremely hard to let go – it is never easy to say goodbye to persons you became close to. I am going to miss this remarkable series and its protagonists.

This is a book for you if you like excellent story-telling, mysteries or paranormal romance with a very urban touch and believable characters, some strewn in steamy situations, and some violent events.

The stunning sixth and last book in The Gift Legacy series!

Highly recommended! A series to read again.

About the author

I’m very fortunate to live in a writer’s paradise on one of the small northern Gulf Islands off the eastern shore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The rugged beaches and towering fir and arbutus trees that surround me often end up in my stories. When I’m not pouring my imagination into my computer, I’m futzing in gardens, making a mess of the kitchen or hiking local trails. I write stories that entice you to believe the impossible and escape the everyday for a while. Enjoy the read!
