Publisher's Summary

Remembering the dead will always give them life.

The coveted Morrígan’s staff is up for sale on the black market to the highest bidder, and SOA Special Agent Patrick Collins will do whatever it takes to ensure the Dominion Sect doesn’t get their hands on it. Returning the weapon to its rightful owner is another step on the long road toward clearing Patrick’s soul debt, but he won’t walk it alone. Jonothon de Vere won’t let him.

Obeying the gods means Patrick must travel to London. For Jono, it means facing a past he thought he’d left behind forever. His return to England isn’t welcome, and neither is their pack, but Jono and Patrick will face the antagonism together. Politics aside, their priority must be the mission, but the bone-chilling secret they uncover in the London god pack will have far-reaching repercussions no one can ignore.

A race against time takes Patrick and Jono from the streets of London to the bright lights of Paris, where hospitality is thin on the ground, the air is filled with whispered prayers for the missing, and the Morrígan’s staff will end up in the one place it should never have gone - a graveyard.

For beneath Paris lie the long-forgotten dead, and when they rise to walk again, the living can only hope to die.

On the Wings of War is a m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to A Vigil in the Mourning. Listening to the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

BEST ONE YET!!

Okay, so I squeed like a fangirl when I got my audible of this book, just like I squeed when I got the book!

I've already raved about the book on Amazon so I'll rave about Gary Furlong's narration job here. So. Damned. GOOD!.

seriously, this guy amazes me. The attention to detail, the learning of Gaelic pronunciation, the vast array of accents and different 'voices' he creates to bring Hailey's book to life.

Mind blown.

Riveting and more!

Hailey Turner’s amazing series just keeps getting better.

I loved reading this via ebook but listening to Gary Furlong’s narration brings the whole experience to a different level. The story is clearer in my mind, the details more vivid, Wades antics are more hilarious, the fight scenes more magical and intense.

This is what happens when a brilliant story is being narrated by a brilliant narrator.

Now I’m off to listen to book six and I’m excited and nervous at the same time.

A fast paced, urban fantasy!

I love the world building of this entire series. Each book keeps getting better and better and I can't help but look forward to listening to them.

If you like a fast paced paranormal, urban fantasy setting you will love this.
If you like an action packed romantic, fantasy mystery, I do recommend this.

Gary Furlong has performed an exceptional audio delivery as well.

annoying

as much as just love these books I cant stand wade anymore. he's turned into a whinie little kid and it take the flow outta the story. it's almost like the rider purposely made Wade into a little child to stop people from wanting to listen to the book every time his character comes up in the story I want to stop listening

Totally entrenched in this series!

These books just get better and better. This is book 5, though I can't believe it because the flow is so seemless.

Don't even bother with this if you haven't started the others; this is not a series you can just jump into the middle of. The world-building is dense and thorough and the story arcs continue from book to book.

The NY god packs keep having these small battles, but most of the book takes place in London and Paris; this arc really takes a backseat. I love the ongoing love story of Jono and Patrick, and how they both mentor Wade like big brothers. There are many returning characters and a few new ones thrown in. I was still a little lost during some battle scenes--maybe those are better read than listened to? Still, it wasn't as confusing as the one with all the Celtic gods. I am now desperate for book 6; BIG surprise at the end of this one!

Gary Furlong does a great job. He nails it with Patrick and Jono, and even Wade. He doesn't merely read the book, but brings it to life. I won't be able to read these after listening to his masterful performance.

I highly recommend this entire series, and especially this contribution. Can't wait for the next one!

Best yet!

This one has such great pacing and seemless action - do you need more of a sell than: Zombie Invasion and absurd amounts of property damage?
Furlong did an exceptional job too with attention to details (making Patrick have less accurate French pronunciation than Jono for example.)
If you've followed the series this far, you'll love this one!

The Pack is going on a trip!

So it's June and the new info Patrick got in the previous book about The Morrígan staff requires that Patrick, the Pack and Lucien fly to London for the auction in which it'll appear. And since this is Patrick we are talking about AND the Morrígan staff, a War and Death Goddess, all hell breaks lose, LITERALLY! And they'll follow it to Paris.

Hailey delivered another amazing installment and she went all on the gorey bits! It's amazing seeing the Pack all together, working together, fighting together and bonding more so each time. The best thing though is how Jono's steadfastness and perseverance, with no bitterness or resentment, continuously work in chipping away Patrick's walls, knowing that even though Patrick hasn't said the "I love you", his "I'll come back" and actions (well actions when it comes to them, not blowing up city blocks) speak it louder. I seriously teared up in Wade's absolute faith in Patrick, Jono and their pack when Patrick asked him to shift mass and that no harm whatsoever would come to him when what he was would be revealed.And the twist at the end! I want to be happy about it for Patrick (although his feelings weren't clear on it) but I'm pretty sure that it won't all be sunshine and roses.

P.S.: No one can say that Patrick didn't try here to minimize damage, but what is a mage to do when a hoard of zombies is coming your way?
P.P.S.: OMG! I love Wade and his bottomless pit of a stomach.

setup for the next book

I really do enjoy this series but the chapters in Paris just seem forced as I'm used to a more immersive story from this author. Instead I kept on having to reread sections as I felt that I was being rushed through although that might be because the author was trying to push the urgency of the situation. I'm not going to ruin the ending for anyone but It makes it clear that this book is definitely laying the ground for the next one. So I look forward to the next.
