Wynd Book 2: The Secret of the Wings
James Tynion IV, writer; Michael Dialynas, illustrator
Wynd, Oakley, Thorn, and Yorik continue their dangerous quest across Esseriel in this collection. They know they are on the run, but they lack a crucial piece of information that is revealed early in this arc: the vampire General Zedra has struck a deal with King Yossar of Pipetown. The king wants his errant son back. But he doesn't care what becomes of his companions, and in fact wants his son to be scared by the world outside of Pipetown. So, the scene is set for the vampire carnage that eventually ensues. The vampires attack the faeries, intending to make it look like it was done by humans (adding a double-cross into the mix). But there are new players, who may be the mysterious Winged Ones of legend. Wynd uses some of the power they passed to him to bring Thorn back from the brink of death. Zedra has also encountered the Winged Ones' power, and it may transform all of the vampires. Plenty of interesting complications for the next arc.
