Sometimes the only way to heal is to love...
When Colin Flynn returns home to Ireland, the immortal Night Walker is not the protector he had once been. Although his flesh has healed, the scars hide a broken spirit.
Juliana Duffy is a survivor. She owns a florist shop and continues to play piano in spite of her deafness. Her prophetic dreams warn her of coming death and show her the faces of two men: one a customer and one a handsome stranger.
After hearing her music, Colin finds himself drawn to this woman who refuses to be defined by her injury. As an ancient enemy emerges and threatens her safety, Colin will need to learn Juliana's secret to overcome his wounds, and regain his strength.
But falling for a mortal could be the greatest risk of all...

A song of broken wings mended... (4 stars)

If you're a rabid Night series fan like I am, you probably have realized that this novella is the last hurrah before the final book, NIGHT CHILD. Which makes it a little bit of a bittersweet read. I've liked Colin all along so I was hoping he'd find his mate and Juliana is a wonderful one, but I also hated how rushed it felt.

When a bombing left Juliana deaf she had to learn how to keep going even though she could no longer hear the music she so loved to play. But she's been having visions of two mysterious men who've recently come into her life with no way to understand just what they mean. For one of them poses a deadly threat... while the other threatens to win her heart. In Juliana, Colin finds a strength to overcome he needs after his injury in NIGHT DEMON and so much more.

The only reason I couldn't rate this read a five is that it was too short and felt rushed. Colin was one of my favorite characters from the start—a hot Irish guy who turns into a hawk? Awesome!—and so I kind of wanted just a little bit more time spent on him. That aside this was such a good story. Kessler is so creative and fresh in a genre so easily slapped together at times that I feel she's the most under-noticed talents writing paranormal romance. NIGHT ANGEL does a great job of getting Colin ready for the conclusion of the series and I'm quite honestly dreading the end.

Not a good one to read as a stand-alone but also one I would not recommend skipping before reading NIGHT CHILD either. This is a pivot point for the series that is not to be missed. If you love romances where there's a physical or emotional (or both) element to the romance you will love Colin and Juliana's story.
