You will LOVE Ellie She's the perfect balance of mad battle skills and heart Wondering why every teenager has to have absent parents? Ellie and her mother share a close loving relationship Yes youth of today it's okay to love your mom Creeped out by centuries old guys falling in love with teenage girls? Well Ellie's soul's pretty old too Annoyed by girls throwing themselves at obsessive stalker guys? Ellie totally calls Will on it and actually shows a healthy level of suspicion After reading about one too many TSTL heroines this year Angelfire was refreshing and originalFrustrated by book series holding their cards too closely and providing no answers? I'm looking at you Fallen Well Moulton's perfect mix of answers and mystiue creates a well developed intriguing mythology for her series And thank you Courtney for NO CLIFFHANGER Angelfire's ending is my favorite kind for a book in a series there's a satisfying resolution to this book's conflict with just enough unanswered uestions and mystery to have you clamoring for the seuel AND I AM CLAMORINGAnd that romantic tension? You'd need to use one of Ellie's Khopesh swords to slash through it I was about to say this is where Moulton really shines but then I remembered her action scenes which are brilliant and I don't even really like action scenes so I suppose Moulton is eually brilliant at writing heart aching romantic tension and gripping action scenes Moulton's pacing for Ellie and Will's relationship is fantastic I loved seeing Ellie fall in love with Will none of this I love you for no reason other than I happened to see you from across the hall for our heroine and Moulton's use of flashbacks was captivating This book oozes and seethes with romantic tension and it kept me coming back chapter after chapter waiting for the moment when Ellie and Will would FINALLY kiss So so so worth the waitAlthough I was a little thrown by the big reveal about Ellie near the end of the book I definitely did not see that coming and I'm not crazy about that development I cannot wait to see these characters again Intriguing mythology well crafted characters riveting action and captivating romance combine into one thrill ride of a novel that grips your heart and doesn't let go

KINDLE Æ à Courtney Allison Moulton

AngelfireHim 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 jus Honestly it sounds a bit too much like Buffy for comfort except Giles is a hot guy with a Cloud strife esue buster swordStill I'll take a look ETA READ IT Okay here's my non spoilery reviewA good effort Which seems patronizing but really after struggling through the whole thing that's the only compliment I can really musterI mean she certainly writes action 'well' and by 'well' I mean you can clearly visualize what's happening except it feels like dancing while counting in your head and one and two and three then really letting the passion flow out of the writing I think part of that had to do with the fact that a lot of the fights felt like fights for the sake of fights on that later than something moving and intrinsically tied to the emotional and narrative plot Still good clear fight scenesThe idea is pretty interesting too though let's be honest we're only calling this 'uniue' because it's decidedly different than Twilight plotwise anyway and now and days so much paranormal YA feels like an endless simulacrum so when you find a book that 'goes against the grain' and again in the slightest of ways you take notice But if you've watched Buffy this isn't any different Stop me if you've heard this one girl demon fighter chosen one reincarnated again and again to keep fighting those demons Only she can defend the world against yadda yadda And there's the guy devoted to watch er protect her Except unlike Giles he's young and hot okay Giles was hot but and carries a 6 foot sword only I'm guessing because the author is most likely an embarrassing FF7 fangirl whose been taught by Cloud Zack and Sephiroth that guys with really long phallic weapons are hot and really they are and it is Can't fault her on thatI mean it has the potential to be interesting but I've just seen it all before Still even with a pretty well trodden premise a great writer could twist it into something really compelling But that's the problem Moulton put in a great effort but she's just not a great writer Not yet anyway She's decent But her writing style is lacking and unfortunately clearly shows her lack of techniuewriting sophisticationSo much exposition in the A style with Ellie asking stupid uestions that someone in her position in the current situation that she's in after just discovering her powers for example would not ask Certain uestion that I felt the author just threw in there just so the readers would have this bit of info Sometimes it wasn't even important to know And trust me there are much better ways to introduce interesting plot elements than just random fight Hey Will? asks uestion Well Ellie answers Some of the exchanges between the two are just so laughably ridiculous you just can't imagine a regular person reacting the way Ellie does in the situations she's in And you can tell this is just awkward maneuvering by the author to make sure we know some piece of information or to set up for a joke that she really want to put in there When you stop seeing the story and start seeing the strings you know the author's doing something wrongThe fights were also though clear slightly annoying Like I've read in another review there's a difference between action and adventure Adventure has the action that is actually important to the plot moving it along in different and interesting ways Action is just the random fighting that happens And you get that a lot Fights that happen in the middle of EllieWill's 'date' or something just to spice up the narrative and to give the characters an excuse to angst over each other in battle It's like the random fights in an old school J RPG Walk walk walk OMG FIGHT then walk walk walk on to the next plot pointAnd the writing That's the biggest issue here the style of it Honestly the writing was extremely flat line The author seems to be able to convey teens pretty well except there's so little personality in her writing it barely ever really comes out This is even of a problem when the book's in first person First person narratives ESPECIALLY need a great engaging voice and some of the sentences are so clunky so dull and heavy handed it was tough just to keep reading The very opening of the book was where I realized I'd run into problems with this Boring No flare nothing engaging nothing to stir the reader's interest to get the juices flowing Just Ellie is in school Class ends She gets paper HUH? Really? Isn't the first rule of writing to hook the reader from the get go? It doesn't have to be flashy but think about the great books out there the evocative setting voice something interesting happening that reveals something about who the character is and this was just so balls out dull I almost put it down right there I mean don't agents and editors WARN writers about that type of stuff? It's like every conference that's what you hear Opening pages opening pages What happened?Look I know that at least in terms of paranormal Young adult lit the standards are decidedly lower You can hate on me for saying that but with some of the crap coming out it's true It's become so corporate and commercialized it's really about trying to hit certain points that Twilight proved will absolutely bring in the target audience romantic wangst monsters special heroines hot boys etc Not to say that Angelfire is Twilight level You can tell the author was really trying to do something with it But because standards for paranormal YA have dropped so low and fangirls have become increasingly easier to please hitting those points become far important than the writing and execution That's why I suspect this will get a sizable following And really I feel like that's become the main marker of success for YA novels But the fact remains that in the hands of a experienced and sophisticated writer this book could have been a lot than it was The premise is interesting enough to bring in the readers and again it does indeed hit all those 'young adult paranormal' points But the writing and execution of it was just so juvenile I can't in good conscious give it then a 25 Maybe 28 It's nearing a 3 but just not uite good enough to get there I'd say if this was a story I found on fictionpressnet or one of those sites where amateur writers post up their original fiction and if I read it I'd give it an enthusiastic review saying something like This is great You need to work on A B and C but if you keep writing and working on your craft you'll definitely be good enough to get published one day Keep it up Because that's exactly what this story read like a decent but ultimately flawed manuscript written by someone with talent but who just ultimately isn't ready to get published yet And yet is IS hence the low marksAgain I'll probably get tons of 'unhelpful' reviews on this though let's face it the 'unhelpful' or 'helpful' buttons are fairly pointless used by fangirlsanti fangirlsthe author to hate on reviews that don't immediately agree with whatever opinion the button presser has about the book Still this is just my honest review It's just not a decent enough book for me to honestly recommend it to anyone other than those who already have pretty low standards when it comes to books Especially those for whom YA supernatural lit represents the pinnacle of literaturePS Strong heroine? Let's get this straight Simply being able to fight doesn't automatically make a female character 'strong' Particularly when she seems revel in being protected by the Hot Nice Guy who we know is a Nice Guy ie syndrome because of his numerous and fairly self indulgent not to mention creepy for a NUMBER of reasons displays of 'noble' self sacrifice I really wish authors would realize that it takes than a sharp weapon to make your heroine impressive
