I know, I know, I should've posted this a little sooner, but I enjoy my summer. While it's still here, that is.
I found Angelfire to be an odd yet delightful read. Normally I'm not a big paranormal reader, but I was told that this was awesome, and they were right. Ellie was really brave and head strong, although she did have her weak moments. She was learning everything right along with us, and those feelings of weakness made her feel more human, more like us. Will was... Awesome. The brave hot guys always are. He has the entire mysterious thing going on throughout the book, and I'm hoping in the sequel there's more of him. Not that we didn't see plenty in this one. They did do some stupid stuff that I wouldn't have done, things always worked out in the end.
At least, I hope so.
The writing was good, the plot didn't drag... I liked it. There was a lot of fight scenes though, especially at the end. But that is totally expected when your heroine is an awesome demon killing... thing. If it were a movie I would give it 40 out of 51 tacos, which is hard to achieve.
I hope you have a fabulous summer, and until next time I hope you add this to your stack of books to read at the pool.
