Retrieved January 18, Well, there were some small flaws plotwise that bothered me but nevertheless I can safely say that I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
When she isn’t studying ancient civilizations or writing about magic and monsters, she’s busy with farm chores. Now just throw some angels and some stuff about Heaven and Hell and battling the forces of Hell. And that romantic tension? Prior to AngelfireCourtney Allison Moulton’s creative background consisted of artwork and photography. And you know what? The beautiful girl on the cover is seventeen-year-old Ellie, who has begun having nightmares about past lives where she fights reapers.
What did Lauren see when she touched the Enshi sarcophagus and Ellie? Once Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead are re I don’t want to put up my full review yet since this book is several months away from being published. I don’t know, but I hope Miss Moulton knew how to take her story and characters better, and did not write what seemed like a combined reflection of all the TV shows and video games she watched and played.
She breaks the large explanation areas up with wit and amusement, and reveals things at a steady and well rehearsed pace. There are so many cliches in young adult paranormal fiction these days, and Moulton has an antidote for all of them.
It takes an excruciatingly long time for anything truly interesting to happen, so if I were you, I’d skip out on this one and opt for a more scintillating read. This only gets stronger as things progress and she is suddenly thrust into a new and unexpected world. To ask other readers questions about Angelfireplease sign up.
This little beacon of greatness just about does it. It’s like, every conference, that’s what you hear. Riveting and heartbreaking and beautiful”. They have all the awkwardness of teenagers, the level of embarrassment and questions, and the slap in the face moments of realization of their feelings. Action is just the random fighting that happens. I’d say, if this was a story I found on fictionpress.
I also am not allisson of the Q-and-A style of weaving the information in the reader’s mind. True, there are times when you have to insert a scene when the main character takes in how beautiful his angelfirf her love interest is–yes, there ARE scenes like that, and usually at moments when the main character’s full focus is on his or her love interest–but, you don’t have to anvelfire it, like, every chapter.

Angelfire (novel series) – Wikipedia
Serious, but not urgent, it seems, since he has to wait for his Ellie, who sometimes bides her time in the reincarnation process and must grow to the ripe age of seventeen before her powers are activated. Which seems patronizing, but really, after struggling through the whole thing that’s the only compliment I can really muster. Is Angelfire good or bad?
The kind where you zone out and can’t believe how little time seemed to go by in so many pages. But maybe that’s just me. The concept sounded interesting and is what drew me to the book, but as I read, it just felt like a very, very poor imitation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer the television series with minor differences. And speaking of Will Dec 30, Benni rated it did not like it.
Ellie, you are about as genuine as my poinsettia hair. The characters, the story-telling, the writing, the themes… was there anything? I was initially sold on the book because of the blurb, When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers – monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell – she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul. She’s fiery and fierce.
After a half-twist reveal, though, I suppose I would also feel uncomfortable if they were to become an official couple. I think that the author took all the bad things that we find in some paranormal YA, turned them into good stuff and then put them into this story.
