How was it?
There’s a reason why this is one of the few series that I read AND listened to on audible. It’s good stuff, exciting, always a great read, and On The Wings of War is certainly that. The characters grow and evolve in each book, as new interesting ones are introduced.
I appreciate this trend in the Soulbound series of introducing us to folklore and myths from around the world, but it’s always impressive to see how organically those legends blend into the story. Hailey Turner has created a rich world where mythological legends, politics, action, and drama collide.
Setting the action in London and Paris, gave us a glimpse at how things are done outside of the States. Whether it is in the werecreature community or the government side of the magical community. This added another layer of realism to the series, as well as providing us a glimpse into Jono’s life before he came to NYC.
Speaking of the Wolf-Bright blue eyed God Pack alpha, his mage, Patrick, cracked me up in this book, particularly when they were in London. Sage, who’s my favorite, really stepped up and was so bad-ass I loved every word of it. It was also nice to spend some time with the Hellraisers’ adjacent characters.
I think it’s the first time it’s clearly mentioned who told Setsuna to keep Patrick safe. Before, I was under the impression that she stepped up for personal reasons that I loved speculating about. Setsuna is not the only one for who I had to adjust my speculations for. The revelations from the London God Pack changed what I thought about Estelle and Yusef. I figured that one or both of them were like Jono but now, my theory has shifted a bit.
I understand the cliffhanger ending for On the Wings of War but it got me f’ed up. I have so many questions, I am not used to this “unresolved” feeling from this book series, but it’s such a good cliff hanger! So the wait for book VI will be excruciating. This book was the freaking best
