A Rush of Wings, book #1 in the Maker’s Song series was in my monster to-read pile for some time now, so I decided to unearth it.
Thank goodness I didn’t let it collect anymore dust! This is a fabulous book. Not very often do I EVER give a book 5 stars, but this novel deserves all 5 shiny gold ones. It also prompted me to contact the author and do an interview, which I will be posting soon.
The reason I loved this book isn’t just for the interesting story and intriguing characters, it is because of how the book was written. The story is an Urban Fantasy, interlaced with mystery, infused with thrills and dowsed with a good helping of white knuckled; edge of your seat suspense. Not that I thought it possible, but all those elements are rolled into this fabulous novel created by the mastermind, Adrian Phoenix. You will be haunted by the heart-wrenching past and devastating loss that plagues the main Character, Dante. He is a rock star, cult phe-nom, and thought to be one of the Nightkind: graced with the unearthly beauty of a dark angel and destined to be worshiped like a god.
Our heroin, Heather Wallace, a FBI special agent finds herself tracking a serial killer and viewing a crime scene right next door to Club Hell. The owner is said to be the lead singer of Inferno, a Goth rock band, who only goes by the name DANTE. Maybe fate has brought this unlikely pair to converge at this crossroads, or simply a darker; more evil puppeteer is enjoying pulling their strings. But either way, you wouldn’t want to miss a single breathtaking moment. Your journey begins on the first page, be prepared to be launched head first; into a blackness not of night, a nightmare of the waking and a melody meant to be heard but never sung. Welcome to a rush of wings.
Please stay tuned for the upcoming interview with this book’s author, Adrian Phoenix,

Back of the Book:
HIS NAME IS DANTE.
Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.
HIS PAST IS A MYSTERY.
F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be “nightkind”: in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.
HIS FUTURE IS CHAOS.
What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer — and she’s pretty sure that link makes him the CCK’s next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man — who, she begins to believe, may indeed be a vampire — in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante’s past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny….
