Read Wings Unseen Online Free - To end a civil war, Lansera's King Turyn relinquished a quarter of his kingdom to create Medua, exiling all who would honor greed over valor to this new realm on the other side of the mountains. The Meduans and Lanserim have maintained an uneasy truce for two generations, but their ways of life are as compatible as oil and water.
When Vesperi, a Meduan noblewoman, kills a Lanserim spy with a lick of her silver flame, she hopes the powerful display of magic will convince her father to name her as his heir. She doesn't know the act will draw the eye of the tyrannical Guj, Medua's leader, or that the spy was the brother of Serrafina Gavenstone, the fiancee of Turyn's grandson, Prince Janto. As Janto sets out for an annual competition on the mysterious island of Braven, Serra accepts an invitation to study with the religious Brotherhood, hoping for somewhere to grieve her brother's murder in peace. What she finds instead is a horror that threatens both countries, devouring all living things and leaving husks of skin in its wake.
To defeat it, Janto and Serra must learn to work together with the only person who possesses the magic that can: the beautiful Vesperi, whom no one knows murdered Serra's brother. An ultimate rejection plunges Vesperi forward toward their shared destiny, with the powerful Guj on her heels and the menacing beating of unseen wings all about.
Readers of all ages will enjoy Wings Unseen, Rebecca Gomez Farrell's first full-length novel. It is a fully-imagined epic fantasy with an unforgettable cast of characters.

Many thanks to Rebecca Gomez Farrell, Meerkat Press, and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
Well, I've debated my review for about a week. To say I was underwhelmed may be a bit strident, but I'm still left with a flat feeling. While I'm certainly glad I...

This book really surprised me. I went in expecting a cool fantasy setting (and yes it's as good as the blurb makes it sound), some different magic and a really annoying love triangle. I was partially right, and partially wrong.
The Not-So Love, Love Triangle
So let's deal with the 'three-headed' l...

Thank you to Meerkat Press for the ARC! Overall a very strong and ambitious story with a beautiful cover of our three-winged bird!
At the heart of the novel is a land torn apart decades earlier by war and powerful, selfish leaders. This left Lansera and Medua, two areas divided by poverty, culture...

I received a copy from Meerkat Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Wings Unseen reminds me so much of Falling Kingdoms. We have around 3 main POVs with a few minor ones that are placed in different points in the 2 feuding kingdoms. Vesperi is the daughter of the estate lord in M...

Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell was excruciatingly slow. It had great potential but it was lost in way too many details and nonsense. The characters were all pretty boring, except Vesperi who had a good overall character evolution. I wouldn’t waste my time for this one. I almost DNF’ed a co...

Things I liked:
*Uniqueness of the characters
I knew I would like one of the characters, Vesperi a lot from the beginning. She was unique. But besides her, I can't remember any of the characters until...

I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
How to summarize this?.........
Welcome to Lansera and Medua. These two places used to be one before they were separated, putting the bad people in Medua and the nice ones in Lansera.
Veseri lives in Medua. She’s the da...

Disclaimer: Netgalley gave me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The first few chapters were really a struggle to get through, but once I got about 20% of the way into the book, the strength of the plot and characters won me over. There are some obnoxious things about Wings Unse...

Rating: 2.5 stars
The first thing that caught my eye about Wings Unseen was the cover. It was beautiful and enchanting. Then I read the description and I was even more drawn in.
Within the first few chapters, I...

Wings Unseen is an enthralling female-driven fantasy debut. The world, magic system, and terrific characters – with two complex, multi-layered heroines along with the male protagonist – drew me in and kept me rapt. The romantic set-up goes sideways in a delightful way, satisfying me entirely. The...
