My Thoughts:
 At first I was hesitant to start reading another book about Angels and Demons so to speak as I had begun to think that I was extremely burned out on angel books and was dreading the fact that I may not enjoy this book. I was instantly drawn into this book when I read the first page—I was hooked.

The book starts off with action and made me addicted right from the beginning. Courtney Allison Moulton sure knows how to write action scenes; filled with rich description that demanded my attention and truly made me visualize the scenes extremely vividly. I found myself enjoying the various action sequences, whereas I would usually find them boring. But Moulton sure knows how to write an action scene that is truly entertaining and fantastic.

In other scenes I found myself to be thoroughly entertained too, especially in some of the scenes that one could only swoon over and that seemed too heat up the entire book.

Moulton writing did not disappoint as she kept me entertained throughout the entire book. It’s simple, descriptive where it needed to be and effective. Her action and sizzling scenes were the two aspects where she really shone as an author for me.

The chemistry between Will and Ellie was clearly evident in this book and I loved each and every single character in this book despite the amount (there are many awesome characters in this book). I felt that Ellie was more quirky in this book and I often found myself laughing at some of the things she said in her dialogue.

This book did not disappoint one bit, and I am glad that the sequel lived up to the first book in the series, to me; Wings of the Wicked was even better than Angelfire and I look forward to the final book in the trilogy. This book was sizzling, sexy, action-packed and so much fun to read!
