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.

Angelfire was a fabulous start to this trilogy but Wings Of The Wicked really sealed the deal.  This book has everything readers could possibly want: romance, action, angels, demons, reapers, and one serious badass main character.  Ellie is my girl!  =)

Ellie’s life has changed a lot since Will came back into her life but Ellie hasn’t changed much.  She is just a normal girl trying to save the world from demonic reapers.  No biggie!  In this book Ellie faces even more challenges than in Angelfire and my heart broke for her more than once.  Things aren’t at all easy for Ellie but she fights through it and Will never leaves her side.  Now that is one seriously devoted boy.  Will also faces quite a bit in this book but he is still his dark and moody self.  The boy needs some happy pills.  (I still love him though.)

The action in this book is seriously non-stop.  I never knew when some reaper was going to pop up out of nowhere and try to kill Ellie and Will.  Sadly some of the fight scenes in this book had devastating consequences and I did tear up a little. I truly love all the characters in this book and seeing any of them hurt broke my heart.  Courtney Allison Moulton did a great job of making me feel for the characters.

Overall, Wings Of The Wicked is a spectacular sequel to Angelfire.  The book may be over 500 pages but by the end up will be wishing it was longer.

    I love this book so much. I was so much better than the 1st, which seems impossible since I loved that one too. You teared up a little… oh man, I cried a bucket. I just get so emotionally attached sometimes… anyway, great review Katie!

    Oh my gosh, I heart this book like crazy! I can’t stop gushing and raving about it! Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about it! 🙂 Courtney definitely kicked it up a notch AND THEN SOME in Wings! I am DYING to read book 3! I absolutely cannot wait!

    Aah, I totally agree with you! Will most definitely needs some happy pills, lmao! BUT his dark and moody self is especially why I love him so! <333

    Awesome review, Katie!

    I have this series but was wary of starting it, I don’t know why because I love angel books. I think the focus on fighting was too much for me, but your review highlights everything I like! Romance and interesting characters!

    Must read more about the romance 🙂

    Lovely review 🙂
