This gripping sequel in the Angelfire series continues with more action and more characters. It combines the forbidden romance of Twilight, the friendship and action of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the angelic/demonic mythos-urban fantasy/horror of Supernatural. Preliator Ellie is remembering more and more of her reincarnated soul’s past as archangel Gabriel. Her forbidden attraction to her Guardian, Will, is growing and becoming more distracting. Bastian seems to be back and with a bigger, more insidious plan to dominate humanity. Both Ellie and Will discover they have deep, dark powers not yet known and their long past together is both a strength and weakness.
This book, like its predecessor, will engage readers easily and many will not be able to put it down. The angst-filled, romantic tension; best girl/supportive friend; and fast-paced action sequences will keep readers wanting more in the next installment. This excellent book is a must-have purchase for all libraries, especially where horror, romance, and urban fantasy fiction is hot. Characters and plot continue to be very strong and the mixing up of traditional lore is appealing. Readers will eagerly anticipate the next in the series. This novel will provide crossover appeal to both older teens and adults.
