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.

Oh this book and all the feelings. In book 2 of the Angelfire series Ellie is still kicking demonic reaper butt alongside with her Guardian Will, who she loves, but can't be with. Oh, forbidden love, how you SLAY me.

We are introduced to a few new characters this book: Ava and Marcus. Both are also reapers who are going to help Will and Ellie.

You can't help but dislike Ava because she is hard, cold, and not at all impressed with Ellie. At least until she shows off her bad-ass Preliator skills. Ellie is instantaneously jealous and wary of Ava because it's clear she shares some history with Will.

Marcus, on the other hand, is less uptight and a fun character. He trails Will and Ellie to a party where he meets BFF, Kate. Ellie fears he is going to use her and break her heart. But hey Ellie- sometimes people surprise you!

Speaking of surprises.... Cadan. We see alot more of him in this book and we actually get to learn about him and his relationships with Bastian, Ellie, and Will. I like Cadan, but Will definitely snagged my heart back in Book 1.

This book is quite an emotional one, compared to the previous one. Disclaimer: the end of part one will tear your heart apart.

Will and Ellie are still as in love as ever with each other, and it was only a matter of time before the emotional floodgate broke and these two surrendered to their feelings, no matter how forbidden it may be. They love each other, protect each other, and lean on each other in times of need, but the two also face some heavy trials that definitely makes things a little rocky between them.

Ellie is still struggling with her human side and her angelic one. She wants to find a balance between the two and she really struggles because she doesn't want anyone to get hurt. Yet, she is still a teenage girl who isn't quite willing to relinquish her human side.

Moulton really puts our main character through the emotional ringer. Ellie is faced with tough decisions and overcome with heartbreaking loss. Yet, she is the Preliator and she has a job to do.

Once again, I loved the lore here. Learning about the Fallen, the archangels, and the plot to release Lilith and Sammael is so neat to read about. (I have a weird fascination with Lilith)

The action scenes also were very well-written and fast-paced, leaving you almost as breathless as our characters!

After that ending- I need the final book ASAP!
