In Dirty Wings by Sarah McCarry, Maia is a teenage piano prodigy and dutiful daughter, imprisoned in the oppressive silence of her adoptive parents' house like a princess in an ivory tower. Cass is a street rat, witch, and runaway, scraping by with her wits and her knack for a five-fingered discount. When a chance encounter brings the two girls together, an unlikely friendship blossoms that will soon change the course of both their lives. Cass springs Maia from the jail of the only world she's ever known, and Maia's only too happy to make a break for it.
But Cass didn't reckon on Jason, the hypnotic blue-eyed rocker who'd capture Maia's heart as soon as Cass set her free - and Cass isn't the only one who's noticed Maia's extraordinary gifts.
Is Cass strong enough to battle the ancient evil she's unwittingly awakened - or has she walked into a trap that will destroy everything she cares about?
In this time, like in any time, love is a dangerous game.

Where does Dirty Wings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
So beautifully written and narrated I loved this book
What did you like best about this story?
I loved how this story gives the back story of the parents of the main characters from the first book. Give a whole new depth to the characters and how they wound up.
What does Renata Friedman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her voice adds to the lyrical nature of the text. She brought it to life.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
There was so much in this book that I often needed to take a break just to think about what just happened but I definitely could have listened to it all in one sitting.
