The choices I had made led to the moment when fate took over. I would learn a lesson I wasn't prepared for. And Death would be my willing teacher.Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her "lucky" break came at the expense of her mother's life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.
Now she's the target of Death's ravens and an innocent boy's life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey's secret crush—starts to climb Alaska's Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets
My thoughts

Cover: A really likeable cover. The raven give it a ominous, something is lurking feel. I know don’t judge a book by its cover and have to say yes the Dude angel and raven got my attention.

Book: The book tour signup was posted on YA Bound. I immediately signed up because On a dark wing was on my wish list and for me as an Int books are hard to come by. This is a 4 stars review. I think I just lucky reading great and good books after each other

A horrible accident happened a few years ago. Abby survived, her mom didn’t. She got ‘’lucky’’. And Death does not forget

Abby, our leading lady was not appreciate to her dad and Tanner, her best friend. Probably cause of the accident. I did not feel for her but after a while you feel her honesty and such and started to like her.

Tanner Lange, is our co protagonist and best friend a computer genius and in a wheelchair. But a hot nerd. I’ve to say I’m pretty good looking myself ha ha [ego boast lol]. I really really really really really[ ok enough really’s lol] liked him and you can ‘’taste and feel’’ his love and friendship towards Abby in the ‘air’’

Nate is a very important character and co narrator. A popular and boy next door type. He was ok , I did not get to feel his ‘’him’’ , his ‘’soul’[pretty philosophical right,lol] although loved his interaction with his little sister zoey . A great big brother.

And Death, that’s his name ; nothing less or more. I felt a little pity , I said a little pity c’mon he’s the death. His loneliness and how he sees the us..

This book was in 3th person and 3 pov’s ; Abby, Tanner and Nate. Liked all of their voices especially Tanner. I liked his chapters the most. There were emotional scenes but did not feel at times and liking Abby at first decreased the rating. This is a paranormal Young adult with a touch, a dazzle of contemporary. Liked the raven after each chapters pictured.

There is love, a lot. Parental[Yay , the parents are present , sisterly- brotherly and friendship and of course romance. There’s infatuation but that’s a other thing. Love the relationship of Abby and her dad after it strengthened. And romance with the person you don’t expect. I found the perfect song

I’m glad I had this experience and would love to read her other books.

Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin Teen for approving my request. And YA bound for letting my partake in booktour. This an 100% honest review

A song that fits perfectly with this book and does generate a atmosphere.

  5. Thanks for posting that music video, Roro. Man, I love that song.


  6. Reading from your review, the character development sounds a little lacking... is that why this book is a 4 and not a 5?

  7. Great review! This sounds like a good one---I'll have to try it out sometime and see what I think!

  8. I really liked Tanner too. He is fabulous. I loved it when she surprised him by kissing him. Too fun!


  9. Love that you mention the parents are actually present in this.... family bonds are way too often over-looked in YA! Really glad you liked this, because I think I'll be getting a copy soon, so I'll have to bump it up on my TBR! :)

    Merry Christmas!

  10. I haven't seen this one before but it looks good.
