"an intriguing, complex world with a non-stop adventure"
When members of the the Winged Clans start disappearing
Dearn, King of the Winged Clans, fears that the hated
Vulture Clan may not be extinct as was thought. Many years
have passed since the vultures and some humans waged war
against Dearn's people and committed atrocious acts. When
the clans defeated the vultures, Dearn's ancestor ordered
the them executed. Along with the vultures, the Bastard
Breeds, children born from the rape of clanswomen by
vultures, were ordered exterminated. Unfortunately, it
appears that both clans might have survived to start
Dearn's fears are confirmed, when he finds his cousin and
his cousin's family brutally murdered and later is almost
captured by the vultures. A beautiful Bastard Breed,
Matte, saves him from capture and confuses him greatly.
Are the Bastard Breeds friends or enemies? Dearn will need
all the friends he can get to defeat the diabolical forces
gathering against him.
Wow! I loved this book. Ms. Leigh creates an intriguing,
complex world with interesting characters and an absorbing
plot. BROKEN WINGS starts off with a bang and doesn't let
up until the very end. I was sad to see it end and hope
Ms. Leigh plans more books set in this world. While BROKEN
WINGS isn't erotic in nature, it does contain realistic
scenes of war and rape. It may not be everyone's cup of
tea, but I greatly enjoyed it.

He is the king of a winged race steeped in honor and tradition. His blood runs fierce and pure with his Eagle Clan heritage.
She is the general of a clan that should not exist. Her blood is diluted, tainted by that of the reviled Vulture breed.
Now Dearn and Matte will come together, each fighting for the existence of their people and peace between them. But first, they must defeat not just the Vultures, but also the demented dreams of a human king and the merciless vengeance of Cinder, the demonic god he follows.
