Review: Angelfire By: Courtney Allison Moulton

ANGELFIRE: ( Angelfire #1 )
By: Courtney Allison Moulton

First there are nightmares.

Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.

Then come the memories.

When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream

Now she must hunt.

Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.
I heard a lot of buzz going around about this book on twitter so i decided to read it. I knew it would be good but not THIS GOOD, it blew me away leaving me with no regrets. It's absolutely stunning, purely magnificent! Alone the cover drew me in but the summary was so interesting it left me wanting more. I felt a magnetic pull pulling me in the book each time i read it, Courtney is a genius!

Ellie is a ordinary girl by day, but kicks evil butt during the night. After her seventeenth birthday everything changes. She now has to face dangerous, deadly, and gruesome creatures called the reapers who would do anything to get their hands on her. The only way to defend herself is by awakening her powers. The way Ellie takes on the reapers are amazing, she's brave and very talented. Trust me she's a girl you wouldn't want to mess with.

Will is to die for, he is not only strong but Ellie's fierce protector. He always has Ellie's back and comes to help her if she seemed troubled. Together they kick ass and are unbeatable. I adored how Will would do anything to keep Ellie safe under any circumstances, and how he is so over protective at certain times, its just so sweet. Will is like Ellie's knight and shinning armor.

More kick-ass characters are introduced in this book as you go on, but since i don't want to spoil everything for you i'll end here.

Angelfire is a wonderful debut, I'm looking forward to reading more about it and i hope i get to know the charaters more better in the next book. If you’re looking for a book with tones of action, amazing kick-ass characters and creatures that will send chills through your bone, then i suggest this is the perfect book for you.   

I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars!
