When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.
A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.
While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

First I loved this book!! It was a little slow going in the begining but as the book progressed I could not stop reading. Courtney has created a world where reapers are beasts like bears and wolves and they eat people to send them to the underworld. There are also reapers that come in human for called Vir I would say more but I don't want to spoil the book.
The Characters of Ellie and Will are so strongly written. Ellie is a badass and Will fights right along with her. One thing I can say about this book was I was very happy there was no love triangle. There was another boy but Ellie's focus was always on Will. I found that refreshing since most books nowadays have a love triangle. The supporting characters were all very well written I loved Ellie's best friend Kate she was so supportive and caring even when Ellie's parents thought she was crazy. I would like to find out more about some of the other characters hopefully in the next book.
I was very lucky to recieve a copy of Angelfire from netgalley thank you so much! I can't wait to read Wings of the Wicked which comes out in 2012. Thank you Courtney for creating such a cool world.
