Coping Book Review

I have a really good YA Fantasy book to share with you called Coping, a Girl With Broken Wings series, written by J. Bennett.
This exciting follow-up to Falling (Book one of the Girl With Broken Wings series) finds Maya intent on joining her half-brothers in their secret war against the genetically-enhanced killers that call themselves angels. Still trying to cope with her new abilities and the hunger that threatens to overwhelm her, Maya may be more of a hindrance than a help to her brothers as they take on a new mission and make a grisly discovery.
Coping is a fast-paced novella that brings readers back into Maya’s darkly-humorous world where angels are not the good guys, the heroes don’t wear tights, and getting in over your head just means it’s Tuesday. Join Maya, Gabe and Tarren for more blood, bullets, and Chuck Norris jokes in Coping.
My Thoughts:
If you love YA Fantasy type stories, then you will want to follow this series. This is the 2nd book and I have already read the first book also. This is one serious series that deals with these people who are turned into something like Death Angels who just want to go around sucking the life force out of humans.
It's a good take on a different kind of Zombie because these aren't dead people and they look just like you and me. It would be hard to tell them apart and unfortunately, you wouldn't know it until it's too late.
Which is where Gabe and Tarren come in who happen to be Maya's half brothers but also they hunt and kill the Death Angels. Unfortunately, Maya was given the same toxic shots that turn her into a half angel herself. She is fighting it and trying to do the right thing, but the urges sure are strong.
She makes it through this book but I wonder what will happen in the next one? If she is ever given that last dose, she will turn 100% and then there won't be any saving her from Tarren or Gabe. This story has a little bit of everything in it, sibling quabbles, monsters, humor and darkness.
Thankfully, there isn't any bad language and the scenes aren't overly graphic so it's age appropriate for young teens.
Happy Reading!
