Wings of Shadow Book 2 Of the Immortal Sorrow Series by Sherri Wingler



Wings of Shadow
Book 2


Of the Immortal Sorrow       Series
By Sherri Wingler

Isabel …. Shes one of the few mortals who ever seen him, the monster that he is, whilst people are in their final moments. And Isabel, she loved him, no matter who or what he was.  She loved him for him.

And he wanted Isabel no matter how hard he tried not to. Or…did he even try not to? Love has amazing powers doesn’t it….

Is Asher going to make things worse, or is he going to make them better? Does he want to help, can he help, what can he do? What power does he have?

What could happen next? Never ever ask that!!! 

Since Izzy has avoided taking the elevator down, well then the big guy will just have to send for her! Oh and have no fear my friends, because what do they say?!

“Hell hath no fury like the woman scorned!” Izzy doesn’t play. Not when Sherri writes for her! But- look out below people, Father Time wants in on the action too!


Asher is loyal with honor and he does not want to give up on his love, and his love does not want to give up on him. And love is supposed to always find a way, isn’t it?!

This book is amazing, so fast paced, I love it, much better than the first! I completely fell in love with this one! I am totally and completely pleased with this! It is a wonderful read! I l could not put it down! I give it five stars! You will love this, especially if you loved the first one! You must go get your copy today, if you haven’t already!

Here are my questions for Sherri:
1. What made you write these books like a series?
I had a few reasons. First, I think there’s just too much story there to be contained in one book, unless it’s something as huge as Stephen King’s “The Stand.” Also, if you look at the market for young adult books nowadays, there are very few standalone books. Readers get caught up in a series when they find characters they love and they don’t want that story to end so soon. I know I do. Also, the series format is a great marketing tool. The first book is like a calling card and it sells the next book.

2. What made you want to bring "Father Time" into this book?
At the beginning of the first book, before I had a clue what I was really doing, there is a line about Time. Something like “Fate and Time choose when and how a mortal’s life should end. Death just carries it out.” So then I started thinking about Time as a person. Death was personified, so why shouldn’t I turn him into a character as well?
I spent several years when I was a kid reading nothing but Greek tragedy. (Just because I was such a wild teenager.) So I had a pretty decent grasp of the mythology before I started, and then I twisted it to make as entertaining a story as I could possibly manage.
Cronus is such a fun character, too. Everyone thinks he’s insane, and why shouldn’t they? Past, present, and future are all happening for him at the same time, which really would drive most people a little nutty, but with him you can never tell. Is he really crazy, or is he just acting crazy because he likes to keep people guessing? We may never know.

3. What movie star would you place as the "Father Time" character and "the Devil"?
I really don’t know. I’ve never pictured them as anyone famous. They just look how they look, if that makes sense. I think everyone gets a certain idea in their head of what a character looks like as they’re reading. I try to give just enough details about looks for the reader to form their own opinion. With Time, he can appear to be any age; young, old, or a child. I picture him with kind brown eyes and curly dark hair.
The character of Satan, well I think he was probably very handsome. He was rumored to be the most beautiful angel in Heaven, wasn’t he? For most of Book 2 he’s wearing a mask. It’s possible the Fall disfigured him in some way.

4. What is your favorite book you have ever read even as a child?
Ok, these are all from childhood, but I’d read them again in a heartbeat:
“Jane Eyre,” by Charlotte Bronte, hands down is my favorite. Edward Rochester is the quintessential anti-hero and Jane was a thoroughly independent heroine. It was the world’s first romance novel, and I still maintain probably the finest.
I also really love a book titled, “The Unlikely Ones,” by Mary Brown. That one is a twist on the old story of the knight and damsel story, although there is a dragon in it.
“Phantom,” by Susan Kay. That book is freaking awesome. She told the story of the phantom of the opera from the phantom’s point of view. She followed him from birth on and it was glorious! I think Amazon still carries it. Read it if you can find it.

5. Have you met any Authors in person?
I haven’t and I really, really want to! I have lots of friends online from all over the world who write, but as of now I haven’t met a single one of them in person. I may have to break down soon and hit a book convention. I was hoping to have my entire series finished before I did that, though. I just want to be sitting at the table with a stack of books, instead of just a few.

6. What are you working on now?
I’m about to finish the prequel short story to my series, “A Glimpse into Darkness.” It should be out in a matter of weeks if not sooner. I know it seems strange to release a prequel after two books are already out, but I wanted to explore Fate a little more. She’s a great character to write. She’s very vindictive, but no good villain is black or white and she’s no exception. I wanted to capture the moment when she first came into power and desire for something she could never have drove her over the edge.
I’m also working on the third book, “Wings of Defiance.” That one belongs to Grim and Gwen. I had so many requests for those two to come back I had to give them a book. They’ve both got such strong personalities they pretty much stole the show in whatever scene I put them in, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s a bonus that they’re fun to write!

7. What famous people would you choose for "Isabel and Asher?"
You know, I really can’t think of anyone famous who would be a good Izzy or Asher. I drove my cover artist, Danella Miller, nearly crazy trying to find the perfect Asher for the cover for book 1. We ended up taking body parts from several sources, but the Asher on the cover is perfect. He’s as close to the Asher in my head as anyone will ever come.
My Izzy was pretty easy to find. She’s a model named Kate Durant and she fit the bill for my character perfectly.

8. Do you ever get writers block?
I don’t get blocked in the sense that I have nothing to write, but I do get blocked because there’s so many different ways a story could go. So I have to stop and think through each possibility until I finally give up, write the ending and figure out how I got from point A to point B. Also, I’m a huge procrastinator which is terrible, but it seems to be a common ailment with writers.

9. What are your favorite things to do?
Writing is my favorite thing to do. When the story is flowing the way it should it, lights up every part of my brain and I love that feeling. I have a full-time job and a family like so many other Indie authors, so there isn’t a huge amount of spare time for extra stuff. I’m really pretty boring. I’m just a cat lady with a laptop and a dream
