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.
My very first review on our blog was Angelfire last year so it somehow seems fitting that really close to our1 year blogaversary that I review the sequel in the series! I look back on that review with fond memories it wasn’t the best review I’ve ever written but hey I was just starting out if you want to read it I’ll post a link after my Wings of The Wicked review. On to the review.
Wings of The Wicked is a crazy ride! Ellie is coming in to more of her gifts (or powers) and along with that her memories are also returning she now knows more than ever why it is that her and Will belong together. That being said it isn’t easy and Will pushes her away even though it tortures him, she’s an archangel after all he thinks he can’t be with her. The funny part is I wrote in my first review that there wasn’t a love triangle well I’d still say it’s not but, there is another character that is sure as hell trying to make it one and for that I love him. Cadan has easily become my favorite boy in the series not that I don’t like Will but he seems too stiff for my tastes. Cadan is funny, passionate, and doesn’t put up with crap from anyone including Ellie.
The story continues with so much action that you’re sitting on the edge of your seat as soon as you open the book! Bastian is back along with some horrifying reapers and some very big surprises. I’m pretty sure I said “Oh Crap” a few times and also cried. Answers will be answered but more questions arise. Some pretty terrible stuff happens in this book and the ending will leave you shaking your fist at Miss Moulton because it’s one hell of a cliffhanger! This is a must buy if you loved Angelfire and if you haven’t read it buy them both!!!
I decide to use a scene from the book this time. It’s not spoilery since I mentioned Cadan above ;) I absolutely loved this part!
“I never thought you’d be like this.”
“I heard stories of you,” he said, “Of your violence and ruthlessness. But you’re just a girl-a very beautiful, vulnerable girl.”
Being called beautiful was one thing, but I couldn’t afford to be weak. “Thanks, but I’m not vulnerable.”
“You are,” he insisted softly. “And I think it may be part of the reason why I’m so drawn to you. I am utterly enthralled. You’re innocent, so unlike the beast you’re said to be. Ellie, you have this softness about you that I could never dream of damaging. It would be like stomping on a flower. What would be the point?”
That’s one of his sweeter moments but there’s plenty of the smart sarcastic Cadan we know and love in there too!
