Waiting on Wings of the Wicked

This description doesn't actually sound that exciting to me... it's kind of overly long, sounds melodramatic and a bit too religious. Based on this blurb alone, I don't think I would pick this book up. But, I read the first book, and I loved it. So, I've been looking forward to the sequel pretty much since I set down Angelfire.


Wings of the Wicked
by Courtney Allison Moulton
Harper Collins
January 2012

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.

  1. lol, I must not be awake this morning. I kept asking myself what is religious about this? Then I realized Heaven was a place and not someone's name. Time for coffee. ;)

  3. YEAH!!! So excited for this one too! I really enjoyed the first book, though I think I'm going to have to reread it before I pick this one up because I know I've forgotten important things. Can't wait for more Ellie and Will!

  7. LOL Madigan!!! That synopsis IS kind of long! x) And I never thought of religious before, but now that you mention it, it kind of does! But I'm still SO excited for this too, and oh my gosh, aren't you intrigued by this Cadan character?? I'm wondering if CAM is going to introduce a love triangle! x)

    Awesome pick for your WOW, Madigan! I'm definitely waiting on this one with you! :)
