  • Kirkus Reviews – “War, treachery, and star-crossed lovers abound in this high fantasy novel. . . . Farrell’s book is imaginative, filled with detailed worldbuilding, but rarely bogged down in exposition. Each of the protagonists’ stories is engaging in its own way.” – Full Review

  • Book Allure (4/5 stars) – “I enjoyed the writing of Farrell. . . . Each action was written to such precision that it felt like a well-directed movie in my head, leaving little for me to fill in. And that’s great! For a high fantasy book, the author’s ability to describe is essential and Farrell excelled at it.” – Full Review 
  • JD Dehart Reading & Literature Resources – “I would place this book on the shelf next to Anne Aguirre, Veronica Roth, Christopher Paolini, and Ally Condie.  Being a former middle grades English teacher, Wings Unseen would have been on my recommendation list and if any of those former students come knocking, I would not hesitate to tell them about Wings Unseen.” – Full Review
  • Bookwitty – “Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell is a complex book that clearly owes a debt towards A Song of Ice and Fire in its multi-POV structure. … A lot of adult fantasy books are a slow burn, particularly in the romantic arcs, but YA and this book specifically, counter that by laying out the emotional elements in a very forthright manner.” – Full Review

Endorsements
"Wings Unseen is an enthralling female-driven fantasy debut. The world, magic system, and terrific characters – with two complex, multi-layered heroines along with the male protagonist – drew me in and kept me rapt. The romantic set-up goes sideways in a delightful way, satisfying me entirely. The characters truly grow and change over the course of their epic quest, including a heroine who begins in a dark place and rises above it. An initially unlikable heroine, Vesperi is deftly handled and won a place as my favorite character. Compelling, entertaining, and enlightening, Wings Unseen is a fantastic read!"
– Jeffe Kennedy, award-winning author of The Twelve Kingdoms series
"With a talon-like hook, Wings Unseen will grab you and not let you go."
– Mur Lafferty, award-winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City
"Wings Unseen marries intrigue, unique worldbuilding, and political machination in a fast-paced story that will surely appeal to high fantasy and historical fantasy readers."
– Jaym Gates, author of Shattered Queen
"Wings Unseen is the fantasy I've been waiting to read for a long time. Vibrant, intense, but underscored by a weight that makes the characters jump out at you, this is not a book you will put down."
– Jay Requard, Author of The Saga of The Panther and War Pigs
"An intricately woven coming-of-age tale full of magic and intrigue. Wings Unseen presents a vivid world populated with a wonderful collection of characters to love and despise."
– Dominica Phetteplace, award-winning author of "Gin Is Stronger Than Witchcraft," "Project Entropy" and others
"An absorbing, original epic fantasy that's impossible to put down."
