On A Dark Wing by Jordan Dane

Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her "lucky" break came at the expense of her mother's life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death - by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky - she would never be normal again.

Now she’s the target of Death's ravens and an innocent boy's life is on the line. When Nate Holden - Abbey’s secret crush - starts to climb Alaska's Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.

And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets.

Release Date 27th December 2011

Quite an interesting read although I have to say, I was a bit ..... disturbed? ..... by Abbey's obsession with Nate, it bordered on creepy and stalker-ish. It was more than just a teenage crush, or maybe it was just a teenage crush but, since Nate was mentioned or fantasised about every other paragraph, my mind pushed it into obsession.

But the story was good other than that. I liked the take on death, although I didn't see Death as a young boy, I'm kind of hoping that Abbey seen Death as a teenage boy 'cos she's a teenager and that a person would see what they would most relate too. I liked how the story was told from a few different POVs, especially the parts with Abbey and Nate, since it let you see what was happening on both sides of the stories.

Definitely worth a read and a nice change from all the current YA books.
