A Game of Wings and Marks


by Rebecca Crunden

When Octavia Coal goes to the mountains to clear her head, she doesn’t expect to find an angel in trouble.

He tells her his name is Tamiel and he’s one of the Irin – the army of angels tasked with keeping demons from overwhelming humanity. But Tamiel broke a sacred law – he fell in love with a human – and now he’s being hunted by the same angels he once served.

With nowhere else to go, Octavia and Tamiel – along with Jack, the human in question, and her brother Caleb – appeal directly to Zev, the Demon of Games. A trickster of unparalleled power, Zev gives nothing for free, and the gift he offers Octavia to keep Tamiel alive comes with a confusing catch: He makes her the Healer of Raphael, archangel and Commander of the Irin.

Suddenly a target for both angels and demons, Octavia quickly learns that the only way to survive is to play the game better than they do.

The only problem is, she doesn’t know whose game she’s playing …

There are so many things about this book I enjoyed. The portrayal of angels and demons, how humans work into it, and the overall plot were wonderful. Octavia is so strong, and the bonds between the characters felt almost tangible. Everyone was so life-like I wouldn’t be shocked if I ran into Zev or Tamiel on the street. I was a little sad when I reached the end and had to leave everyone behind. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something that isn’t what you’d expect when you hear angels and demons.
