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.-Goodreads


My Review:

I didn't realize how much I loved this series until I picked up Wings of the Wicked...oh man it was SO good!! Even better than the first book in the series!!
When I first started Wings of the Wicked, it was so hard to put down! There were so many amazing parts that I did not see coming-both the good and the bad!

So one of my favorite parts about this book is the romance between Will and Ellie!! He has loved her for 500 years!! That's serious dedication..and every scene that they have together makes me want them to be together so bad!! The fact that Will is also  one of my favorite male characters makes me feel for him even more! He is so compassionate and sweet, but also he is willing to do ANYTHING for Ellie which makes me love him even more!

Another thing that I loved about this book was the action!! I'm not a huge fan of so much action where it just overtakes the plot of the book, but this had the perfect amount of it which I really liked! I also loved learning more about Ellie's past/angel mythology as well!

One thing that always gets me in the end is cliffhangers!! Ahhh I can't wait another year for the next book!!

Overall, I LOVED Wings of the Wicked!! Probably one of my favorite sequels so far this year!! Sometimes certain sequels of books fall flat for me due to love triangles, and unnecessary plot changes..but this one was incredible and I'm so glad that I loved it.

So I highly recommend that you pick this book up and if you haven't read the first book (Angelfire) please check it out!!

My Rating:
Five out of Five Stars

I agree. This was such a good book!! I liked the first one, but I LOVED Wings of the Wicked. The cliffhanger was rough though :/

I just picked this up from the library about an hour ago because I finished Angelfire a week ago. I am looking forward to more of Will! I am glad to hear that the sequel was good because I've been disappointed by many sequels for other series/trilogies that I've read recently.
