Goodreads :First there are nightmares.
Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.
Then come the memories.
When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream.
Now she must hunt.
Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.
My thoughts :
I was dying to read this book mostly because of all the awesome reviews I had read. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first though, because I'm not really into paranormal romances featuring angels and demons. However, I was pleasantly surprised ! It was a bit hard to get into the story but the more I read the more I grew fond of the characters. Ellie is just my type of female heroin : badass without being too tough .. I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. Meeting Will, whom I had heard so many wonderful things about, was also great. He's a very interesting character and I'm hoping to learn more about his past with Wings of th Wicked (which I've already ordered!!). I loved all the fighting scenes that I found amazinggly written !!
The one thing that bothered me a bit about this book was the whole angel/God thing because I'm not a believer though I greatly respect those who are .. It was one thing that I felt like I couldn't relate to but that's not something that will prevent me from reading the sequel, that's for sure :)!!
I really enjoyed the plot and I'm hoping that the second book will be as good or even better than Angelfire !!
Overall, the highlight of this book for me was the two main characters which form an amazing duo and I can't wait to read more about them !!
Have you read Wings of the Wicked ? Did you like it ?
4 stars, I really liked this book !
