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.
Ellie wants nothing more then to have a normal life outside of her Preliator duties. She wants to have a relationship with her the man she loves but will keeps pushing her away. More of her memories come back until her mind is completely free and she remembers everything of her past human lives. The demonic players are more determined then ever to get their hands on her making being normal harder and harder as the days go on.

I enjoyed ANGELFIRE but was not overly into it. I have to say the WINGS OF THE WICKED was much easier to get into. There is plenty of drama and danger to keep you turning the pages. The frustration of Will and Ellie's non relationship keeps you determined to see them move on in their relationship already. We get to meet a few more allies in their war against the evil and Caden proves to be more then meets the eye. I really enjoyed the characters and the way they fit into the story. The plot continued to be unique and interesting and the pace had a nice flow to it. I really like the world that Courtney has built for her story and will continue reading her future books in this series.

I gave it 4/5 stars
