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 demoni...more
You've been warned
Oh, and sorry for the bad language in advance!
First of all, let me get one thing straight. This book was
I know, it's not the newest book in the stores, but I got my signed copy *proud* last week, and you know
for waiting for it.
And it's over
but I'm writing this anyway.
So, in the beginning, I mean in the very beginning all that sexual tension was bearable. Really. But then when the room was getting hotter Ava had to arrive and freeze everything. No, not be ...more
Hah. More like Wangst of the Wicked! I kid, I kid.
I made a comment about the first book being Buffy Season One: Disney Channel Version. Well, the sequel jumped straight into Buffy Season Six territory. It's dark, sexy, and witty. Much more so than the first.
Admittedly, I wasn't too impressed with Angelfire, the first book in this series, but Wings of the Wicked is abundantly more fun than it's predecessor.
The characters are starting to get into a comfort zone with each other and the chemistry b ...more
1) The plot. There isn't one. Most books have one of these. This one, for some odd reason, went another way...of meandering endlessly.
2) The main character. Let's see . . . seldom does she actually kick butt, even though, supposedly, she has some sort of super human powers. Waiting on those. S ...more
Basically, after I ranted to a bunch of my friends about the awful first book in this series (ANGELFIRE) some of them read it too. I ended up feeling much better about the whole thing after we'd all laughed ourselves into hiccuping puddles over how dire it was. So then we ...more
Review to come...in Feb. 2012 when the book is actually released.

I mean, I already hated her when I started, so I assumed that it honestly couldn't ge ...more
Ellie is struggling to balance her normal human life with her duties as the archangel Gabriel. She won't give up her school, friends or social life seeing that they are the only things keeping her sane. Ellie and her guardian, Will are trying to stay one step ahead of the demonic reaper, Bastian who wants to unleash hell on Earth. They are also patrolling the streets at night, fighting demons and fighting their feelings for each other. Will is reluctant to have a relatio ...more
Once I started Wings of the Wicked I honestly could not put it down. I was an emotional roller coaster through out so much of this book. Ellie is facing some of the hardest things ever and she has too much at stake. One wrong move could have disastrous effects. It doesn't help being an archangel she only half remembers and having so many human emotions. Ellie sacrifices so much in this book and not everyone comes out of it alive.
I could not put this down. There was just so much going on and neve ...more
Last year I read, and very much enjoyed, Angelfire by local (to me) author Courtney Allison Moulton. I have since been awaiting the sequel, Wings of the Wicked, with much anticipation. I was hoping it would live up to the promise of the first book. I'm very pleased to say that it has.
Since discovering that she is the Preliator, things for Ellie have become very straight forward, and very confusing at the same time. She spends her nights chasing down demonic reapers with her guardian Will, who ha ...more
Plus I died a little when I saw at the back of the Chinese version of this book, they insisted that "Ellie is unlike those YA damsels in distress who pitifully wait for the male leads to save them", are you kidding me!? Ellie always needs Will or other male characters to save her or lift her out of danger! Stop painting her as a str ...more
As you’ve seen from my Angelfire review, there is something about this story that really grabbed me. Not sure if it is the angel involvement, or the monster killing action set, but I liked the series and I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
Except for the teenage drama (that at some point got to be a bit tiresome), this book was (as well) really entertaining.
There was plenty of action, tons of monsters to fight, many characters to care about and the ending left me speechle ...more
Oh where oh where has my little plot gone, oh where oh where could it be?
Seriously Ms.Moulton. Where is it. There was like NO plot. I'm sitting there on like page 5,000 (ok...I'm exaggerating but it's loooooong, dammit. And it totally didn't need to be)and all of the sudden I think to myself. "Where the fuck is the plot? Like actually, what is the purpose of this book?" I mean, I get the whole OVERALL thing, but seriously, this book was just a series of super predictable, sup ...more
I was pulling my hair out with every page, my heart ached for Will and Ellie as they battled with their relationship. This story was heartbreakingly beautiful and devastatingly sad with a cliffhanger that will leave you screaming for the final book!
Saying it was "fantastic" wouldn't be a good enough description to how much I completely adored this book.
**I'll post my full review early next year (2012**)
What I liked:
- The world here is pretty intriguing. The concept in good - good versus evil, angelic reapers vs demonic, fallen angels versus well... essentially Gabriel/Ellie. I really like all the effort that's been made with the demonic reapers. Overall, the author has done a pretty good job in creating something int ...more
Guys, breaking news, Courtney is now officially one of my all-time favorite authors. She amazed me with Angelfire but with Wings of the Wicked, she blew me away! It was fantastic in every aspect: the heart-pounding fights, the sizzling romance (Oh good God was it hot), those jaw-dropping twists, and the brilliant cast of characters.
The plot was just so good, up to the point where it's just indescribable. There were some very dark, emotional scenes in this b ...more
...I seriously...seriously... LOVED this book. IT WAS SO EMOTIONAL, I COULDN'T STAND IT. But I did, and it seriously left a bruise on my heart. xD
Will is so sweet. I mean, ugh. He's number one on my top five favorite male heroines in books. AND HE'S BADASS. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOOOR? And then Cadan? WHY DID YOU ACT THAT WAY? Damn it all if I didn't fall for him too! -_- ...more
She’s done it again! Courtney is brilliant! I read Wings of the Wicked right after I finished Angelfire. Very well done sequel. It kept the amazing plot running full speed with more added conflicts between Ellie and Will, Will and himself, Ellie and the world of Reapers and the list just goes on! The plot never slowed down which made for a fast read. (Another all-nighter). The romantic tension between Will and Ellie was awesome! I was cheering for them out loud anytime ...more
My only real complaint was the sex issue. They've been in love for 500 years and are completely commited to each other for God's sake! Why can't they have sex? What do you mean she's not ready???? I get so irritated with YA novels that do this. People in love want to make love. Why does that have to be wrong or dirty? Yes the kissing was hot, but ...more
A.) The writing seems infinitesimally better in this novel, at ...more
I was so disappointed with Wings of the Wicked. I really enjoyed Angelfire, so I was expecting a lot from this book, and while it wasn’t terrible, it just was not as good as it could have been. I’ll probably still read the third book because I like Will and want to know what happens to him, but I’ve sort of lost interest in a lot of other parts of the story now.
My main problem was Ellie. I don’t generally like to pull the “ ...more
