Review by Amber I
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.
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 never a dull moment. Every page felt so intense. There is the forbidden relationship between Ellie and Will, that both try to fight because if they let their feelings surface it could mean death. There is also the fact that some close to Ellie turn out not to be who she thought they were. There is that small thing to that almost every night monsters are trying to kill her and destroy the earth. And through out everything she has to try to deal with the fact she is Gabriel an archangel reincarnated for thousands of years and she is also just Ellie a human who goes to high school. Ellie learns more about her past lives, we meet some new characters and we lose some too. Oh and the ending... Its not to crazy of a cliffanger but its enough to make you need the next book asap.
I really liked Angelfire but I am in love with Wings of the Wicked. This book was just everything I admire in a Ya novel, it had non stop action, a forbidden love, and a brilliant story that kept me glued to each and every page. If you haven't yet go check out Angelfire and then come devour Wings of the Wicked!
