Angel's Feather (Flyer Chronicles, Book One) Kindle Edition
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.

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!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration.
