Review of Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Angelfire (Angelfire, #1)
This debut, the first novel in a trilogy, is achingly romantic, terrifying, and filled with blistering action.

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.

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

Instead of just doing a regular review for this one, I thought I'd try something new and make a video review. I hope you like it! Please let me know if you'd like to see more or less of these.


  1. Great vlog! You were very clear and concise... I have big respect for that, since it's something I can barely manage in written reviews, much less when I'm trying to recommend outloud.

    Angelfire does sound really interesting - I think I may go pick it up for my friend's birthday this weekend, because it sounds right up her alley. Thanks!

  2. Really cool vlog. How do you do it? You are a natural infront of the camera, seriously.

    Anyways, this sounds like a really fun read if I were into paranormal books. I'll think about picking it up if I'm in the mood for one, but I will definitely rec it to my friends!

  3. I absolutely LOVED Angelfire. I really loved the video review - it was a ton of fun to listen too! You made so many wonderful points, that I totally agree with! I cannot wait until book 2 and 3 are out!
