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.
Wings of the Wicked starts out where Angelfire left off, with Ellie and Will kicking some demonic reaper butt. Ellie is still trying to come to terms with the fact that she’s more than just a girl, and Will is still there by her side even though they can’t be together. There is so much that goes on in this book right off the bat. We meet some interesting characters, while we continue to love those that are already familiar to us.
Ellie is working hard at being the Preilator and a normal girl. Her need to be part of the human world is a constant struggle throughout the book, but she never gives up on her human side. Will is always there (serious swoonage here), despite the pain of not being able to be with Ellie as more then just her Guardian. We find out things about Will that let us see a little more into what kind of a man he is. His determination to make sure Ellie is happy is something that takes my breath away every time. His sweetness is mixed with his ruthlessness, makes him the perfect match.
Nathaniel and Lauren are two of my favorite characters. They bring a sense of normalcy to Ellie’s world, despite the fact that they are anything but normal. Cadan is also a big part of Ellie’s life and I liked watching him develop as a character. He definitely brings a little something something to the story. 😀
The storyline develops with full blown action and secrets you weren’t expecting. There are part of the book that made me sigh in happiness and cry in anger. Courtney created a story that is full of imagination, excitement, and most of all love.
I read Angelfire as an ARC and I instantly fell in love with the story. All the expectations I might’ve had about book two were delivered, and then some. I can’t wait to find out what happens next! Wings of the Wicked is out now! Get it, read it, love it!
