Falling Book Review

I have a good YA Fantasy book to share with you today called Falling: Girl with Broken Wings
 written by J. Bennett.
Maya knew something was wrong.  
The stranger’s glowing hands were a big tipoff.   When the stranger murders Maya’s boyfriend with a single touch, drags the college sophomore to an abandoned storage unit, and injects her with a DNA-altering serum, Maya prays for a savior.    
Instead, she gets a double helping of knight-in-not-so-shining-armor when two young men claiming to be her half-brothers pull off a belated rescue.  
Now Maya is swiftly transforming into an “angel”, one of the scientifically-enhanced, energy-sucking creatures her brothers have spent their whole lives trying to destroy.  
Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.     
Struggling to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, this reluctant protagonist must find a way to accept her new condition and learn to trust her angel-hunting brothers as she joins them in their fight against the powerful and destructive creatures.  
On the up side, at least Maya’s eldest brother has stopped trying to kill her.
Purchase your copy on Amazon.

This was a very intense book so if you are a bit squeamish, you might not want to read this book or let your young teens read it. I was sort of okay with it but really got a little grossed out with her killing dogs and bunny rabbits for food. Otherwise, the story is good and will keep you in suspense.
It's a daily struggle for her not to kill her two half brothers while hunting down other bad guys and she proves a few times that she puts them in more danger than helping until they agree to train her. But, still in the back of one brother's mind, he believes she will turn on them. Until she tests herself without them knowing and comes to understand she has more willpower than he gives her credit for.
This is a trilogy with this being the first book so I don't know how it will develop, but for now, they are a team on the lookout for her dangerous father, the monster who turned her into what she is today. And she wants payback in a bad way, it's all she thinks about other than food.
If you want nail biting, edge of your seat, fantasy with horror mixed in kind of story, then this one will definitely be a mecca for you to read.
Happy Reading!
