‘Despite the dead body found on the first page, and one of the narrators being a hard-bitten PI, ‘When we have wings’ is not your classic crime novel. It could have many labels: speculative fiction, urban fantasy, futuristic thriller, but I suggest you put the labels aside, and just go along for the ride.’ Sisters in Crime
‘…the writing itself is almost entirely wonderful – Corbett has a beautiful style and I would definitely read more from her.
In all, I would recommend When We Have Wings to lovers of science fiction, to literary fiction fans, and to readers looking to stretch their boundaries. It’s not a short book, but it’s worth the effort.’ ASIF – Australian Speculative Fiction in Focus
