Those Black Wings is getting some good reviews, which I appreciate very much.
“I freaking LOVED this book! I picked it up thinking it would be a good read and I was floored with just how good it was. I loved the portrayal of an unhealthy relationship and all that went with that. The characterization was spot on. I loved Kay, and I loved her story and how she went through everything. I was hooked from the first page, and went head-first into a complete and utter adoration of the words in this story. It’s something every teen should read, and a lot of adults too. It was amazing and well told and I just can not say enough good things about this book! I’d give it more than five stars if I could!”
“Really, 4 1/2 stars, rounded up, because it was NOT an easy-to-read story; there were times when I had to take breaks from it because it was quite uncomfortable for me to read; yet the whole time I felt compelled to finish it & knew I would get back to it. Now, I am glad that I did & I totally appreciate the way Ms Cordell concluded the book; I felt that she resolved the issue well – not a fairytale ending, but realistic. And, wow. I think it’s really important for stories like this to be told. I particularly liked where Kay opens up about what’s happening & when she researches online about the situation – I thought that was really important for her and for us (as readers) to get the message that no one is alone in this. Thank you, Ms Cordell, for an engaging & intense reading experience; I look forward to reading more of your work!”
“There are so many levels of abuse and some that aren’t spoken of. In this emotionally hard read, suicide, the threat of it, is used as a form of abuse to keep Katy captive. This isn’t something that is spoken of highly but it is so real. This author handles the topic skillfully. The angst and pain and consequences are real and that makes this book a must read.”
