Book Review: The Wing Collector

Title: The Wing Collector

Author: Kristi Helvig




Hide…or be hunted.

When a pair of faerie wings fetch big bucks online, 17-yo Lila Kincade realizes her kind aren’t just oppressed; they’re hunted.

Due to prejudice and hostility by humans, half-human/half-faerie Lila lives in a world where faeries are required to register with the government and bind their wings in order to look like everyone else. Her fear of being discovered results in a pathetic social life and unfashionable clothing options—fitted tops just don’t provide adequate wing coverage.

Lila is haunted by repetitive dreams involving a shack in the woods, and when photos of dismembered wings appear in her school locker, she soon realizes that she is the killer’s prime target. As faerie corpses pile up around her, Lila embarks on a mission to save her race from extinction. She must figure out who she can trust and stop the killer before she—and all faeries— are obliterated forever.

Kristi Helvig is the best-selling author of BURN OUT, which Kirkus Reviews called “a scorching series opener not to be missed.”



My review

5/5 Stars

Lila is a quiet girl. With her baggy clothes and love for her math class, she never really stands out…in public at least. In the privacy of her own home is the only place she lets her secret be on display. She is a fairy. When fairy wings are sold online, Lila realizes that there is a serial killer who is after her kind and her dreams warn her that if she’s not careful, she might be next.

I loved Lila’s character. I felt as if she was down to Earth, a real believable sort of protagonist. She was cautious and also brave, doing what she needed to do to protect herself and those around her. Combined with Ash, she also had a more vulnerable side that disappeared as the story progressed.

Packed with mystery and intrigue, The Wing Collector is definitely a to-read book for all fantasy lovers.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
