A Fast and Brutal Wing

A Fast and Brutal Wing Cover

 

Staff Pick

If you are looking for a story with clear distinctions between reality and fantasy, sanity and psychosis, this is not the book for you. This novel, in which brother and sister Emmet and Niki tell two different versions of their possible involvement in the death of a neighbor, guarantees mystery, suspense, and action — but no straight answers. You'll have to decide for yourself what really happened out in the woods, and either way, the answer is sure to be creepy.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She leapt, a perfect arc, lithe muscles propelling her through the air, leaving what was human behind, clothes fallen to the ground. She was cat, claws unsheathed, teeth bared. Loving the hunt, the chase, the pounce and the strike, her teeth sinking into flesh, blood spurting in her mouth. Animal justice: ruthless and swift. And totally satisfying.
 
In their chaotic, human world, the one thing that held the brother and sister together was their shared private knowledge: their ability to change from human to animal and back.  Their ability to transform.  Or was that a lie to tear them apart?

This provocative, richly layered, and utterly compelling novel by the author of The Parrallel Universe of Liars and Target asks the unanswerable: What is truth, and what does it mean to be human?
