Sage Barnaby never asked for this soulless and friendless existence, but despite being unwelcome, the darkness found her and made her its companion. When her sister fell sick Sage became desperate, so she turned to the one malevolent thing that could reverse her sister’s fate, but she was cheated.

In a final effort for redemption, Sage summons her guardian angel, which just happens to be the most beautiful and arrogant creature in Heaven and Hell. They embark on a grim and twisted journey to uncover a sacred object that might have the power to save her soul. Sage and the angel face a series of challenges that test their loyalty and their morality, and together, they come to discover that their quest decide more than Sage’s fate alone. Sage Barnaby gave up everything to save her sister, but she died anyway. Now she has nothing left to lose, and that makes her very, very dangerous. 


  • I started this book blindly – without knowing really what the book is about. I’ve read the blurb but I couldn’t really process it through. 
  •  Once you are almost a quarter in, you will truly understand the plotline and why the book is titled as Flightless Bird. 
  • I love this book. Every word and every moment. Especially a hot angel with the name of Belial. And not to mention that deep down, he truly, deeply cares about Sage and is a really sweet guy/angel. 
  • It is very different than any other books that I have ever read. I have never read about angels and demons and hell. 
  • I think that Sage made a really foolish mistake at the end. Really foolish! She just can’t let it go. She was given a second chance but she just let the opportunity to go to waste. Just run away! 
  • All in all, it was a pleasant read. Definitely worth to include in your never ending tbr. 
  • And I can’t wait to read more of Sage Barnaby’s chronicles! 
  • Recommended, if you’re looking for some angel and demons action kinda read! 




  1. Awesome review! Personally, I like to be immersed in a book where I don’t actually have any idea what it is. I feel like it’s a mystery I am yet to solve. 😊
