Your strength in heart and hand will fall. . . .
Ellie knows that the darkest moments are still to come, and she has everything to fight for:

She must fight for Will.
The demonic have resorted to their cruelest weapons to put Will in mortal danger, and Ellie makes an unlikely alliance to save him and to stop Lilith and Sammael, who seek to drown the world in blood and tear a hole into Heaven.

She must fight for humanity.
As the armies of Hell rise and gather for the looming End of Days, Ellie and her band of allies travel to the world’s darkest and most ancient regions in her quest to come into her full glory as the archangel Gabriel.

And Ellie must save herself.
Her humanity withers beneath the weight of her cold archangel power, but Ellie must hold tight to who she is and who she loves as she prepares for the ultimate battle for Heaven and Earth.

In this final installment in the Angelfire trilogy, Courtney Allison Moulton brings her dark world of epic battles and blistering romance to a blazing bright conclusion.

So before I start my review I want to get a little bit sentimental. Angelfire was the first book I ever reviewed on this blog! If you want to see how much I loved that book check out my review here and mind you it was my first so my style has changed quite a bit since then. And then I reviewed Wings of the Wicked right around the time of my one year blogaversary which I loved as well and you can check out that one here. So it only seems fitting that as my two year blogaversary is coming up that this be one of the reviews to close my year out! And Courtney ended this series with a bang!

Ok so on to my review. Shadows was everything I hoped for and more!!!!! Not only because it finally had a lot of Cadan (that helped lol) but because it was an amazing and fitting end to this story! I really don’t know what to say except go get this book when it comes out; and be ready to cry and scream and want to throw things because Courtney brings the heat in this book! Who will survive? Will there be a happy ending? That I can’t tell you but I can say there are a few holy shit moments oh and we finally get to meet someone important from Will’s past! And yes Will fans he is definitely in this book too! Oh and one of the scenes that made me cry the most wasn’t even a Will/Ellie or Cadan/Ellie scene! It was a scene between Kate and Marcus it was possibly the sweetest thing I’ve read in a long time and I’d love to see a story from their POV (hint, hint Courtney!)

Ok enough of the ramble fest go get this book when it comes out!!!!!!!!!!! And check out this scene between Ellie and Cadan J

“I’m not him,” he said as the air rushed from his lungs in an awful, defeated sigh. “I’ll never be good enough, will I?”

“That’s not what it’s about,” I assured him. “I can’t explain what it’s like between Will and me. If things were different…”

“If I were angelic, you mean.”

“No. It’s not about what you are either. That doesn’t mean anything. It’s who you are that I care about and what makes you my friend.” I touched his jaw, which didn’t look so red anymore. “And if you were anything but what you are, like if you were human, then I’d be making a run to the ice machine to get you something for this shiner I just gave you.”

He gave a little smile and I released his face. I walked to my bed, pulled back the blanket, settled into the firm mattress.

Cadan was slower to reach his own bed. He sat down on the edge and leaned forward. He ran a hand through his hair and exhaled. “I’m sorry Ellie. I really am”

“It’s all right,” I said, peeking up at him from my pillow. “Get some rest. We both need some.”

“You’ve got a better heart than me.”

“You’ve got a heart and soul of gold.” I told him. “You just haven’t quite figured out how to tap into all of it yet. I have faith in you, Cadan. I believe in you. Once you can believe in yourself, that you really can do good, you’ll see a huge difference in yourself.”

“Thank you, Ell.”

“Now sleep,” I said firmly. “Don’t make me slap you again.”


  1. I'm so sad to know that this series is over, but I also love when trilogies come to an end and we get the final story.

  2. OH, so excited to see you loved this! I just got a surprise copy of book 3 and I'm planning on tracking down the first two so I can devour the series all at once!

  3. I seriously can't wait to read this book. And that scene you posted . . . sigh. Now that's what I call super sweet! Lovely review!

  4. I haven't read any of this series. I'm not a big fan of angel books so I don't read many. This sounds like one of those series I would actually enjoy though. Great review!

  5. AH!! Seriously awesome review! I LOVED this book too and yup I loved that Caden was in it a lot more than the other books ^_^ The ending was a good one and YUP that Kate & Marcus scene...emotional! Love the scene you put in there ;)
