Book review: Winged Deliverance by Heather Allen Dencker

I’ve been waiting, not so patiently, for this book for a year and now that I’ve finally gotten the chance to read it, I’m heartbroken because it was over too soon.

Winged Deliverance, just like Winged Descent (the first book in the series), is told in multiple POVs, each chapter is told in first person by one of the three main characters.

In book one I started off by liking Conner, then I hated the way he acted and decided I was team Kendrick; but I have to admit I warmed up to Conner a lot in this one, and I cheered and rooted for him all through the story. My heart broke for him at times, and at some point in the story (I won’t tell you when, otherwise I’d spoil the reading experience for you) I was mad at Heather and I threatened never to speak to her again if things didn’t change… I bet now you’re curious to know why, aren’t you? :)

The story starts a couple of weeks after Kendrick, Norana and all the centaurs who’d come to Earth had been forced to go back to Centaura. We finally get to read Kendrick’s letter to Savannah, which we knew about from book one but Heather kept us on tenterhooks and never told us what was written in it until now - and it was worth the wait, let me tell you. :)

Even though Savannah and Conner try to get back to their normal lives, forgetting anything had ever happened, an unexpected visit makes them change their minds and they realize that their lives will never be the same anymore. Especially since there’s a threat coming from the Lapiths, and Conner and Savannah are the only two people who can inform the centaurs before it’s too late.

I don’t want to tell you too much about the plot, because it’s so much better to discover every twist in the story as it unfolds; what I can say is that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat most of the time, and every now and then it will make you go “aww!”, bringing a smile to your face.

I loved the interaction between Conner and Savannah, and I was glad that, in spite of the events in book one, they went back to being best friends. I missed their banter!

I don’t need to say how much I loved Kendrick, because he’s just as handsome and cute as he was in book one – and now that’s he’s the basileus (the king) of his planet, he’s even hotter. *lol*

I really enjoyed this story but I wish it didn’t end so soon. Even though this is supposed to be the last book in the series, I do hope the author will decide to write another one, because I would really love to read more about the new lives of the two different couples (sorry, but I can’t tell you who the second couple is!).

Maybe I could try coaxing Heather to write another book, and find other fans who’d help me with that (so if you’ve read the Winged Trilogy and just like me you want another book, let’s team up together and start sweet-talking Heather into doing it). :)

Have you read Winged Deliverance already? Leave a comment and let me know what you thought of it.
