Review of the Winged Series by L.M. Pruitt, Books 1-3

My Overall Rating for this Series is 5 Stars
Here's the overall series review summary.

Winged, book one, had me hooked quickly and I was blown away by the story being told. It’s creative, fun, emotional and sexy. The dialogue is fantastic, witty and flows well. I couldn’t wait to read more.

Uprising, book two, jumped right back into the world and the characters’ emotions. It was a little darker than Winged and some seriously surprising and bad sh*t happens in this story and the author makes you feel it - feel for the characters, feel their pain.

Lost, book three, was darker than Uprising, but in a different way than Uprising was darker than Winged. Joanne, the heroine is dealing with personal demons and the demons are winning. In all three books, the author did a great job at making me feel the characters’ emotions. Whether it was happiness, anger, lust, or despair - I felt it.

Simply put, the Winged series is a fantastic read. Pruitt delivers the creativity, the emotion, the action and even some hot sex.

See individual book reviews below.

Book 1
L.M. Pruitt

I fell from the Talmadge Bridge the week before I turned thirty.

I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels.

I chose the demons--and the angels.

I chose the Winged.

Winged Book Two
L.M. Pruitt

I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels.

I chose the demons--and the angels.

I chose the Winged.
In the last year, Joanne Watson has died, fallen in love, fought demons and earned her Wings.

None of that compares to what's coming next....

Life as a member of the Winged isn't perfect--or easy. There's always some new camp drama. There's always a demon ready for a fight. There's always death.

And now there's the Resistance.

Joanne must choose again, this time between her fellow Winged and their burning desire for change or the archangels and the eternal vow she made.

Even in the afterlife, one truth remains--everything ends

Uprising was darker than Winged. It had some major upsets and surprises. Pruitt, the author, continues to deliver when it comes to making the reader feel the physical and emotional pain of the characters. I found myself feeling for Raphael's and Joanne's relationship strain even when I wasn't reading. 

I'm disappointed in something that, by the end of the book, I knew what was coming in the third book. I really didn't want it to happen but I can't tell you without a spoiler. My hope is the author will MAKE me want it to happen in the third book. I also found myself connecting with and caring about some of the secondary characters more than I expected to. You should definitely read Winged and then read Uprising!

Winged Book 3
L.M. Pruitt
June 2013

In the last year, Joanne has survived repeated attempts on her life, wholesale slaughter, and the dissolution on the cornerstone of her new existence.

And the hard times are only beginning.

As the line between right and wrong, friend and foe, and good and evil continue to blur, Joanne is forced to face one irrefutable fact.

The hardest demons to fight are the ones you can't see.

Release Party on Facebook:

Lost was darker in a different way than Uprising was but I'm not saying that's a bad thing. The author, Pruitt, even added a warning to the beginning of the book. Pruitt has a great writing voice and the dialogue flows and never sounds stilted or forced. I actually found myself teary-eye a few times while reading this due to her skill at making me feel the characters' emotions.

I knew something was coming in this story that I really didn't want and I was annoyed about it. However! Pruitt did a great job at redeeming the character so that I found myself enjoying the thing I was annoyed about. Haha. I can't explain without spoilers. If you read it, you'll probably know what I'm talking about. And you damn sure should read it. Another great story.

About the Author:

L.M. Pruitt has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. A native of Florida with a love of New Orleans, she has the uncanny ability to find humor in most things and would probably kill a plastic plant. She knows this because she's killed bamboo. Twice. As a result, she's not allowed to walk in the gardening department of any store without supervision. She's also not allowed in the card aisle of any grocery store without an escort since she'll spend thirty minutes opening cards and laughing for no good reason. She is the author of the best-selling Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, and the Frankie Post series. She continues to make her home in Florida in spite of the heat and mosquitos and shares her home with two cats--one of them smart, the other not so much.
