Black Wings

Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


There hadn't always been something wrong with Briella Blake, but when she's invited to attend Parkhaven, a private school for extremely gifted students, the girl's wicked genius begins to manifest itself in ways her mother can no longer deny are...strange. Briella's friendship with a raven, Onyx, that's equally as smart as she is, prompts her mother to restrict the animal from Briella's company. Soon Marian learns that nothing can stop her daughter from interacting with the bird, who seems to have become an integral part of the girl's experiments into the possibilities of recording and recreating personality and memory. Also the existence of angels, the afterlife and the soul. Marian's pregnancy with a sibling Briella doesn't want spurs the girl into a frenzied activity of experiments and desperation. Soon, it's impossible for Marian to ignore that although there hadn't always been something wrong with Briella, something is certainly wrong with her, now. Certainly even a child genius can't be blamed for the unexpected deaths and sickness surrounding her. Even the idea that the raven has become some kind of paranormal instigator of tragedy is too ridiculous and idea for Marian to entertain. With a difficult pregnancy sapping her strength, it's all Marian can do to keep herself out of the hospital, much less torture herself with worry about the daughter who's never caused trouble before. A mother's worst nightmare might be something terrible happening to her child - but what happens when the terrible thing IS the child? FLAME TREE PRESS is the new fiction imprint of Flame Tree Publishing. Launching in 2018 the list brings together brilliant new authors and the more established; the award winners, and exciting, original voices.

About the Author

Megan Hart writes books. Some of them use a lot of bad words, but most of the other words are okay. She can't live without music, the internet, or the ocean, but she and soda have achieved an amicable uncoupling. She can't stand the feeling of corduroy or velvet, and modern art leaves her cold. She writes a little bit of everything from horror to romance, though she's best known for writing erotic fiction that sometimes makes you cry.

"Tear You Apart", RT Magazine, Book of the Year, 2013 "Deeper", RP Magazine, Best Erotic Fiction, 2009 Her erotic fiction novel "Switch" was on the New York Times, USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestseller lists.


"This intriguing twist on the chosen child in an elite school trope confronts the reader with a number of unsettling questions that will linger long after the final page has turned." - Publishers Weekly "The horror creeps up on you, and I loved that about this story...Black Wings is a little The Omen, a bit Rosemary's Baby, and a lot awesome. It's disturbing and the tension drips off the page, kept me on the edge of my seat as the nightmare unfolded. I couldn't put it down, found myself racing towards the shocking conclusion." - Yolanda Sfetsos "Black Wings was a great, surprising find and an unsettling, sinister horror story." - Alibris "If you liked The Prodigy or plan to see it this would be an excellent companion piece." - Signal Horizon "BLACK WINGS is a totally engrossing psychological thriller, with implications for civilization's future." - The Haunted Reading Room "I can't stop thinking about this book!" - Book Fuel Blog "I Loved this book!" - Well Worth a Read "I really enjoy the author's subtle and original approach to the creepy-kid trope, it's one of my favourites ... This is one of those books that will stay with me a long time!" - The Most Sublime "...a disturbing and compelling examination of the horrors of motherhood." - We Who Walk Here, Walk Alone "Black Wings is dark and demanding with spine chilling moments that will leave you gasping for breath...It's a fantastic piece of work on every level." - Stacy is Reading "... a fast moving and entertaining drama which I sped through in a couple of days and is well worth checking out." - Horror DNA "Black Wings is a wonderful, real-life-like story with a touch of the fantastical. Wildly original." - Cemetery Dance--- Publishers Weekly
