Wings of the Wicked - Courtney Allison Moulton



Synopsis: 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. (from Goodreads)


AHHH! I can't get ENOUGH of this stuff!!! I'm completely in love with this angel/demon world and all the characters in it! I don't know what it is about Courtney Allison Moulton's writing, but I'm hooked. OK, that's kind of a lie. I do know what I like about her.


We get to see Ellie in a whole new light in this installment of the Angelfire series. She's become more vulnerable and put into situations that really test her will to keep going. She still has that feisty sarcasm and dry wit that I enjoyed from the first book, but now she's dealing with heart-breaking trauma. I really didn't expect some of the twists that were thrown in, and I really felt for Ellie in this book. She's pushed to the emotional limit.


But this time she has Will, along with her other friends. They all have such a deep connection with each other that I can almost see the bond jumping out of the page. And I don't just mean Ellie and Will (although things between them move to the next level), but also Ellie and her best friend, Kate, and even Ellie and the new angelic reapers she meets in this book but has known for a long time. And lets not forget Cadan. He's created quite a following with this book! I like Cadan. He offers a different side to the reapers who care about the Preliator's well-being. But I'm not in love with him; I think there's still even more to him than we know. I'm very excited to see what becomes of him in the next book.


One of the themes that got passed around a lot in the first book and continues into this book is the line drawn between the angelic and demonic and how there is no choosing your destiny. A reaper is either good or evil. But Ellie constantly questions this, and for good reason. I think her hesitation to judge is one of her strengths, along with her humanity...another topic of interest. To me, this is what makes Ellie so powerful. Her desire to seek the through and find out who a person really is, even if she's unsure of who she is at times. 


And of course, Will is as loyal and brooding as ever. He's so good to Ellie. So patient. So selfless. His entire existence revolves around protecting her. He's the real deal. I'm totally rooting for him and Ellie all the way. Kate is also worth noting. She and Ellie can almost read each other's thoughts. In my mind, Kate is Will in woman form. She is just as devoted and caring of Ellie as he is, and we get to see a little more that side in this book. She's the bestest best friend.


The last book comes out next January. Are you all as excited as I am??
