In the small, affluent town of Allison Creek, seventeen-year-old Abigail Anderson decides against college despite graduating a year early. Instead, she stays to save her family-owned antique store from the slimy hands of her mother’s new boyfriend. But her journey is unique from the ordinary troubles most teenagers encounter. Abby has other demons to face. Ghosts and spirits of the dead have been terrorizing her since she was a child. Disembodied voices call her by name, silhouettes hide in the dark corners of her home, and malevolent beings scratch at her skin when she is asleep and awake. After meeting a group of friends with the same glass-like, color-changing eyes and streaks of blue hair, she learns she is Cerulean. The divine gift leads to dangerous realizations about the doorways between spiritual realms and her dark, twisted roots of the Anderson family tree. Demons hunt her, angels are hovering, and a mysterious coven is lurking in nearby Hell Town. Abby yearns to make sense of her life and find her purpose, but she must first save her soul, once she figures out where it belongs.
I want to visit Allison Creek and spend a day with Abby and her Cerulean friends then finish the evening hanging with Luca!
Hummingbird is a beautifully written, compelling story blending mystery and fantasy. The gorgeous world created and the fascinating characters swept me away. Prescott elegantly weaves dark concepts, magic, and the paranormal into modern life.
I still can’t decide which character is my favorite! I loved them all, even the dark, and mysterious ones! I was drawn into the story instantly and loved the surprises along the way!
Hummingbird Broken Wings had everything I could want in a fantasy book about demons, angels, witches, and the dead. But it also had elements of real- life we could all relate to. Bold characters, dark twists, and a chilling ending. Can’t wait for the next book!
