Coming Soon...

In the crisp autumn of 1970, the paths of four-year-old Wilona Christensen and Lucien, a fallen Daemon and son of Eris, Goddess of Chaos intersect in an unexpected collision. Drawn by a cosmic outcry, Lucien is captivated by the young girl who possesses the rare ability to perceive him. Yet, its the turmoil within Wilona's tumultuous household that fuels Lucien's penchant for mischief, despite his obligation to pursue righteousness following a failed rebellion.

As chaos brews within her family, Lucien, reveling in the havoc he orchestrates, is approached by his brother Horkos with a new directive: guide Wilona toward her destiny for a chance at redemption. Refusing to comply, Lucien, along with his sister Lethe, continue to sow despair and torment Wilona's life.

Meanwhile, Horkos, aided by his brother Deimos and their human ally June, endeavor to counteract the turmoil inflicted upon Wilona. Years later, Wilona finds herself fleeing her troubled home and lands in the care of June and her cosmic companions, where she discovers her intertwined fate with Keegan Knightly; a rugged, compassionate, boy who aids her in navigating the darkness.

"Without Wings" is a poignant reimagining, weaving together the threads of our shared human experience through the lens of fictional characters. It delves into the complexities of hope, love, and resilience, portraying a tapestry of both the profound and the devastating encounters that shape and transform us.


A narrative blend of coming-of-age and existential reflection, it finds its place on bookshelves adjacent to works such as Lauren Kate's "Fallen" , Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman", and  debut author Tory Guyon's "Angel of Water and Shadow".

Anne Shelley’s debut novel is a thought-provoking page turner. She takes an original angle, in that one of the main characters, Lucien is a depressive entity
