Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire #2) by Courtney Allison Moulton
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.

I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the first book.
First, what I didn't like. Wasn't so much a fan if the constant action I this one. Felt like to much.Also frustrated with Ellie for awhile about flippant way she seemed to regard the safety of those she loved although I guess she had to learn the lesson hard way and by the end, I saw so much growth and change in her.
There were a couple of secondary characters that I enjoyed. Marcus was one of them. He made me smile. Also, Her conversations with Nathaniel were a bright spot. I was also pretty intigued with Cadan and what his angle was. I liked their banter though, and the scenes he was in.Loved the romance. This was something that did not change. I fawn over Will and he was as amazing and dedicated as I remembered from the first.
I will def be reading the 3rd soon, in fact, already on the wait list from the library, because I was left hanging, and I have to know what is going to happen.
