On Silver Wings is military sci-fi at its best – a strong, central character, ground combat as well as space battles underpinned by a story that builds up to a totally unexpected revelation and wider insight that I never expected. It begins with Sgt Sorilla Aida unexpectedly stumbling into the start of a war on Hayden, one of earth’s colonies and follows her through various different pivotal roles she plays over the coming years.
I am a huge Evan Currie fan, I never know where his stories will lead, but as usual, he hasn’t disappointed and each book in this series reveals just that little bit more of where the plot is going to make me wait impatiently for the next book in the series. The On Silver Wings series currently consists out of 6 books, each equally engrossing.

About Evan Currie
Evan Currie is a Canadian author who has been writing both original and fan fiction works since the early 2000s and finally decided to make the jump to self-publishing with his techno-thriller Thermals. Since then he has turned out novels in the Warrior’s Wings series, the Odyssey One series, and the first book in an alternate history series set during the height of the Roman Era.
Evan has been writing most of his life in one format or another and, though his post-secondary education in computer sciences and has worked in the local lobster industry steadily over the last decade, writing has always been his true passion. “It’s what I do for fun and to relax, there’s not much I can imagine better than being a storyteller.”
The On Silver Wings series currently consists out of 6 books, each around 250 pages long. They are brilliant quick-read books, the kind that pulls you in and refuses to let go until the last page.
