I had my reservations going into this book, to be honest.Angels, romance, been there-read that.I didn't mind that it had to do with angels, as long there was a unique and nicely woven story behind it.Thankfully, Angelfire more than delivered in every aspect I wanted it to!

Writing was fast paced, simple and right to the point-just the way I like them!While reading Angelfire, I kept having the impression that it was a book written by a friend of mine, someone I know well.It emitted a very peculiar sense of familiarity.And I am not talking about relating to one of the characters or anything like that.I mean that there were things that went on in the book, that made me remember all these endless conversations I usually have with friends about books and how they should be written and what we would like to see in them.It turns out,a lot of those were in Angelfire, and I just loooove when that happens!It made me connect with the story and the characters from the first to the very last page.

But when it all comes down to it, this book is about two people: Ellie and Will.These two had such chemistry, it's rediculous!They were meant to be together, no question about it!And I loved how it wasn't yet another super fast, super lame love.It was deep, meaningful and epic!!I caught myself screaming "Kiss him already, can't you see that he loves you???" because I'm telling you, you could cut the sexual tension between those two with a knife, it was so good!Even though this is the first book in what I hope will be a series, you'll definitely feel like you have read numerous books about Ellie and Will, you feel like you know so much about them already.

Overall, Angelfire is an awesome debut novel by Moulton and one you should undoubtedly add to your 2011 must reads!
