Wings of the Wicked Review
Reading Level:Young Adult
Publisher:HarperCollins / Katherine Tegen Books
Second book in Angelfire series
Life as the Preliator is harder than Ellie ever imagined.
Balancing real life with the responsibility of being Heaven’s warrior is a challenge for Ellie. Her relationship with Will has become all business, though they both long for each other. And now that the secret of who she really is has come out, so have Hell’s strongest reapers. Grown bold and more vicious, the demonic threaten her in the light of day and stalk her in the night.
She’s been warned.
Cadan, a demonic reaper, comes to her with information about Bastian’s new plan to destroy Ellie’s soul and use an ancient relic to wake all the souls of the damned and unleash them upon humanity. As she fights to stay ahead of Bastian’s schemes , the revelations about those closest to her awaken a dark power within Ellie that threatens to destroy everything—including herself.
She’ll be betrayed.
Treachery comes even from those whom she loves, and Ellie is broken by the deaths of those who stood beside her in this Heavenly war. Still, she must find a way to save the world, herself, and her love for Will. If she fails, there will be hell to pay.
I didn't think it could get much better than Angelfire. I was wrong. This was seriously one of the best sequels I've read in awhile. Maybe because it was absolutely adorable in every way possible. Or maybe because it has the best storyline ever. This review is mostly gonna be fan girling. Just warning you :).
I love Ellie. She's strong. Her personality is one of the reasons I love this series so much. Strong snark female heroines are hard to come by. One other thing I love about Ellie is that when she loves someone she never lets it go. I'm creepily obsessed with Will. His relationship with Ellie is adorable. He has to chose between what's right and what he wants. The whole waiting for him to come to his senses and be with Ellie was a litte annoying but in the end it was perfect. I'm really glad Cadan had a bigger part in this. I enjoy him. As long as he never puts the moves on Ellie ;).
One bad thing about this was the plot was kinda fast. Which I normally like. I read this in one sitting and it was amazing. But after I was done I was all uh what am I supposed to do now and I didn't remember much. Oh well the amazing awesomeness of it makes up for that. Of course there's some long drawn out wait for the third book. It will be worth it. I highly recommend this. Read it right now. If you don't like it I'll hunt you down tell you all the things I loved and make you love it :). 5/5 Stars
