Far and beyond, the best part of On a Dark Wing is the mountain trek: the preparations, climbing Denali, and the rescue. There’s nothing scarier than Mother Nature, and her storms create much trouble for the climbers: avalanches, and cerebral oedemas. It all makes for thrilling reading.

The realistic stuff is okay, such as the problems at school, and Abbey’s grief. But the paranormal elements just don’t work. At first, I just didn’t understand what was going on and why, but even after it was explained… Supernatural stuff requires suspension of disbelief, but in this case it calls for too much, which means I have to work to shut off logic, and I don’t like having to work when reading.

Stay for Denali, then make an early exit.

  1. Shame… sometimes I feel like authors add in paranormal elements into a perfectly good book just to “sell it”. Either MAKE those paranormal elements work, or just skip them!
