I would first like to say that I loved Angelfire. Wings of the Wicked is better than Angelfire! It has more action, romance, and just all around intense storyline. It is really gonna be hard for me to write this review without any spoilers, but I'll give it a shot!
I love C. Moulton's writing style. She does a fantastic job with each and every character. Moulton knows what she is doing when she writes a book. The reader feels a very personal attachment to each and every character. You can tell she had so much fun writing this book, it just has you (the reader) feeling every emotion possible. I usually get frustrated with sequels.I feel like the author is usually buying time, being slow with the storyline, so that there is material for the next book. That is so NOT the case with this book. It's better than Angelfire (like I said previously) and it leaves you wanting more, much, much more!
I will start with Ellie's character first. She is one of my favorite heroines. Ellie is so strong, but in Wings of the Wicked she encounters so much. My heart really went out to her in this book, I wasn't sure if she was going to make it. She is tough, yes, in front of Will and her friends. She doesn't want anyone to worry about her. She of course, comes across demons, and has to constantly train and go demon hunting while still trying to graduate from high school. I got physically tired just reading about what was required of her. Moulton of course adds her love interest Will into the mix a lot, which I am not going to complain about. She is tried and tested over and over, when it comes to Will. I love her dedication and determination. Ellie is powerful, Yes. However, she is also just a teenage girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders, and you will really get to know what I'm talking about when you read this book.
Will. Oh, I love Will. I love Will so much, I called my husband Will for the entire week, while I was reading this book. He ignored it at first, but after the third day he started to think I was seriously loosing my mind. Haha. Will is the heart and soul of this series, I kid you not. He is so kind, protective, sexy, and all around one of the best male characters there is. I think the reason I like him so much is that he is mysterious and he is head-over-heels in love with Ellie. His job as her protector though keeps him from really showing Ellie how much he loves her, and in Wings of the Wicked you will see how/why/when/what he chooses to do about that! Will melted my heart... his brute strength and fighting isn't bad to read about either.
This book was amazing. If you haven't started the series, I cannot stress enough to start. It is a non-stop, romantic, action roller coaster ride.
