I’m so excited to share today’s review for you. On Wings of Devotion (Book 2 in the Codebreakers series) has been out in the world for a couple of weeks and I’m so happy to see many share my same excitement. If you haven’t yet read Roseanna White’s latest, then hopefully my thoughts will have you pushing it to the top of your TBR pile.
About the Book
All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster–a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed “Black Heart” every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.
Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron rather than be recruited to the Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him.
But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test.
Oh. My. Camden!!!
Y’all On Wings of Devotion is even more swoony than The Number of Love. Talk about blew me
away! I absolutely LOVED The Number of Love and adored it so much, I put it on all my favorite lists of the year and decade. But I was not prepared for On Wings of Devotion to surpass my love for book 1. But y’all…
Camden is moody, antagonistic, and so full of angst because of the haunting of his past. He carried such hurt and covers it with smirks (which I could totally imagine being smoldering) and humor. And Arabelle can’t help but fall in love.
Arabelle was Camden’s perfect hero. Full of goodness and light all stemming from her devotion of God. But what I liked more than anything, is that she prayed for Camden before she ever knew him, before they ever met. A person like that is worthy of friendship and the best of heroes.
I loved watching these two fall in love and their first kiss gave me ALL THE FEELS! This book will definitely be a reread which means I’d totally give it 6 stars if I could. Instead, I’ll settle for telling all of you to read it and read it now. 😉 Not that I’m bossy or anything.
Go forth and happy reading!
