Just like the first book the actions scenes were awesome. Ellie is more bad ass in this book as far as her fighting skills go then the last. The only small issue I had with her was she was still a little whiny and trying to still hold on to her teen social life. In the first book it made sense because she was just discovering what and who she really was but in this book I expected her to grow up and leave all that behind at least most of it, especially when your fighting off demonic reapers on a daily basis, you have evil beings wanting to kill you, and you know now that you are Gabriel the Archangel in human form.
I liked Will just as much as I did in Angelfire, but I have a thing for bad boys and Cadan had me swooning for him. It's pretty obvious Ellie will only love Will so i'm not sure what Moulton was trying to accomplish with Cadan also falling for Ellie. Well regardless I loved his character and can't wait to read about him some more in the next book. I'm pretty sure there is no chance in hell Ellie will be with Cadan when this series is over but I hope Moulton creates a book just about him.
Moulton also took some serious risks in this book. She killed off key characters without hesitation, one that I had actually really liked. Shocking revelations were made about a few other characters one that I could see coming a mile away, it had to do with Ellie's father which I already thought there was something really strange about him in the first book and Wings of the Wicked proved my suspicions correct.
Overall I really enjoyed this book, and love that it was fast paced without any dull moments. Moulton did leave this one hanging with a major cliffhanger that only makes me anxiously wait for the next book.
I hate myself because that is two years that this book series wasn’t in my life.
Wings of the Wicked was spectacular. If the action and drama of having to destroy the demonic wasn’t enough, Ellie must deal with finding a way to balance every piece of her. She needs to be Gabriel, she needs to be Ellie, and she needs to be Will’s. There is always the worry in her mind of losing one of those pieces and not knowing what her world would be like if a chunk of it was suddenly gone.
Will and Ellie’s romance was superb. It wasn’t the typical Young Adult, teen love angst. Yes, some of that was there, but there was another layer to it because even if they looked young, their souls had been through so much. I felt so caught up in their every interaction, my heart hurting at one moment and soaring the next.
I’m so happy and relieved I was able to get Shadows in the Silence the moment I finished Wings of the Wicked because I would have crumbled if I had to wait. I want to dive right in and let Moulton’s story wrap its arms around me and take me right back into Ellie’s life. I am officially a Courtney Allison Moulton fan.
