Product description

Product Description

How far would you go for the one you love? How much of yourself would you sacrifice?

Trapped on a decaying Earth and cut off from the rest of the Universe, humans are no longer allowed to leave their planet. Break this one law and you die: a penalty enforced by flyers, aliens who look like angels of long-lost religions. Michael, the flyers' leader, is the Punisher who carries out every public execution.

Adam, a young human with near-perfect memory, is committed to rebuilding Earth and a true believer in the flyers' dominion. While Adam's support for flyers isn't a secret, his deep love for Michael is. Not even Michael knows, for his kind never take human lovers, and to Adam, they are too far above him to reach.

In his broken and unwelcoming world, Adam's love can only lead to pain, loss, and disaster. Yet there is no force in the huge expanse of stars and galaxies that can stop Adam from following Michael to the end of existence. Not even Adam's own beliefs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 9 May 2017
By Aimee Brissay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have to admit I was familiar with the idea behind the story and I had been waiting for it for about two year. I was not disappointed. I just love the end result, so much that the Flyer Chronicles might be my new favorite series.
The post-apocalyptic world is so believable I had to go out to check my beloved city is still here, because, judging by how mankind is going, a future such as the one described in Alina's Angel's Feather is entirely possible. Here, there are no more cities or large settlements, there are only remnants of once great civilizations which humans are trying to recycle. Just like the tractor Adam is rebuilding.
Adam is in an interesting character. He can see beyond the simple realities of the day to day life and understands that rules are in place for a reason. In fact, there is just one rule: don't leave the planet, set for their own safety as much as for the safety of the entire universe, which I totally get. The breaking of this, is punished by death by the flyers enforcers, a race of aliens in the shape on men with wings, and especially by their leader, Michael.
While there are romantic elements to the story, it's not a romance per se. Adam and Michael do get together, but they do not end up together. The book is split into pre and -post Michael. The pre-Michael is sweet and full of hope, despite the destroyed world they live in, while the post-Michael one is dark and ansgty. Alina captures perfectly the switch in Adam's mind and personality when Michael leaves. His action, even his callousness toward the deaths his fellow men, is perfectly relatable.
I hope that in the next installment to see more of Michael's world, and perhaps, to find a way for the men and the flyers to live in peace and to evolve together. Wishful thinking, I know, but I love Adam and this world so much!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully paradoxical 22 April 2017
By M. Ernst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am one of Alina Popescu's fans - I think I own all of her books and I can say Angel's Feather is a revelation. It's a leap from the author's usual style, a story full of unpredictable twists. Adam is a complex character tormented by feelings that usually lead to light but his path is darker than what you would normally expect from being in love. To reveal more would spoil your reading experience. I can hardly wait for the paperback version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to the series 22 April 2017
By n1ght0wl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Earth has broken too many alliances and has just dug themselves into some dire straits. The result is being monitored by Flyers, angels or beings with wings who met out punishment to those who break rules.

Adam is one of the inhibitors of earth. He has
eidetic memory. Unlike many he feels it useless to fight the Flyer and believes its better to abide by the simple rules that have been enforced on them. He believes it better to put his energy elsewhere, like making sure there's enough food and resources to go around.

Michael is lead Flyer and is called the Punisher. He mets out punishment to anyone caught trying to build a ship to get off earth.

When Adam is sixteen he witnesses the Punisher end his father's life. But he wasn't sad about it instead mourning for the pain Michael has to experience metting out such punishment.

I won't say more because it's such a short read and goes by so quickly. I loved the world building and learning about the world Adam and his mother have to suffer through and but how much they want to make it a better place. I loved that they tried when so many factors weren't working in their favor.

I'm a bit of a sucker for self sacrifice stories and I really enjoyed this one. I loved seeing Michael and Adam fall in love and what lead up to Adam's and Michael's choices. I really wished this was a longer story and am looking forward to the next installment.

An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angel's Feather 22 April 2017
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an ARC of Angel's Feather for a review. The people of Earth nearly destroyed the planet, tried and failed to rule the universe. They have been grounded, no space flight forever. Flyers enforce this one rule with death. Michael is the lead flyer, the Punisher. Adam wants to fix things and make Earth better, not fly. He and Michael are drawn together, falling in love. Romance and sex are making their mental connection stronger than Michael can handle, no flyer has ever felt like this. He leaves Earth. Adam reels from the loss, broken inside. Adam has a new life goal. He'll stop at nothing, risk anything, or anyone, to get it. Suspense is built as Adam sets his plan in motion. Michael has no idea what he's done.
Alina Popescu is good at science fiction. I like her books, and have several of them in my library. This book left me wanting more. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can Adam resolve his feelings for Michael without betraying his family and fellow Earthlings? 22 April 2017
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this novella really compelling. The main character, Adam, tries his best to ignore Earth politics and rebellion, but he cannot avoid his attraction to Earth's main "jailer/enforcer" Michael, an angel-like alien called a "flyer" who deals out punishment to humans who just can't stand being confined to Earth and told what they can and can't do. Adam's and Michael's ill-fated attraction drives the conflict in the story -- how can Adam grow closer to Michael when he watched Michael kill his own rebellious father? And can Adam stand the thought of distancing himself from Michael? Adam's character is complex and the story has unexpected twists and turns as Adam must decide whether revenge is worth betraying all that he once believed in.

I received an ARC of this book at no cost. This is my honest review.
