A Story from the On Wings Saga
Prequel to On Wings of Thunder
Every story has a beginning…. Dragons. Angels fear them and demons follow them. Formidable beasts of incredible power, they fight each other to the death for dominance. But dwindling dragon numbers cause alarm among the angelic ranks. Surely when they have nothing left to conquer, the fearsome creatures will turn their sights to the Upper Realm.
Roland, an angelic artist of significant talent, doesn’t know what to believe. Part of him longs to see a dragon in person, and his peaceful life of contentment is wearing thin. He wants passion, desire, adventure, and love. He gets more than he bargained for when, along with his sister, he’s ambushed and captured by demons, who bring him to a creature who surpasses Roland’s wildest imaginings.
But the mighty dragon Asagoroth is not all that he seems. Something sparks between him and Roland. Something neither anticipated. Something that will shake the cosmos to its core.
I loved On Wings of Passion by M.D. Grimm. This book is actually a prequel to the book On Wings of Thunder, which was written as a standalone book. However, the fans of the book loved it so much that the author gave us the backstory on how Trystan and Asagoroth first meet and fall in love and how Roland is reincarnated as Trystan in On Wings of Thunder. I haven’t read On Wings of Thunder. I had actually bought the book some time ago because I loved the cover and the blurb and then never got around to reading it. I can say, now that I have read this book, that it will be the next book on my reading list. I finished On Wings of Passion and immediately wanted to start reading On Wings of Thunder to find out what happens next between Roland/Trystan and Asagoroth. I know that I absolutely loved Roland and Asagoroth.
I loved Roland. He’s an angel, and as a baby, the seer said that he had been chosen to be an artist and his medium is painting, just as his older sister had been chosen to be the next high chancellor of the angels. However, Roland isn’t a typical artist. He’s fascinated in seeing the beauty in creatures that other angels consider to be monsters and enemies. He has tried not to be, but he’s fascinated by demons and dragons and how they’re all different looking. His longtime friend with benefits and knowledge seeker, Gabryl, keeps him informed about what’s happening with the dragons and how there haven’t been as many sightings of them and how that will impact the angels, who are enemies with the dragons and demons.
The only dragon to be seen in a while is Asagoroth and how he has a huge legion of demons at his command. This causes alarm in the angelic ranks who live in the Upper Realm for they fear that when they have nothing left to conquer that the fearsome creatures will turn their sights to them. Roland doesn’t know what to believe. Part of him longs to see a dragon in person, and he’s getting tired of his peaceful existence. He wants passion, desire, adventure, and love. He gets more than he bargained for when, along with his sister, he’s ambushed and captured by demons, who bring him to a creature who surpasses Roland’s wildest imaginings.
But the mighty dragon, Asagoroth, isn’t all that he seems. Something sparks between him and Roland. Something that neither anticipated. Something that will shake the cosmos to its core and leave readers scrambling for the next book in the series which is already out and awaiting your consumption.
I loved Asagoroth. He learns a lot from Roland. He learns how to be happy, love, and put someone else above his own wishes and desires.
A truly wonderful prequel. I can’t recommend it enough. Now, off to read the next book, On Wings of Thunder.
