Yet another week where I didn’t even have to check release dates to know what was coming out. I’ve been keeping my eye on the release date for Wings of the Wicked for quite some time and am super glad that the original release date was moved up to January.
Though there were two books I would have loved to spotlight this week, I chose Wings of the Wicked because this is a book I’ve been pining for since the moment I finished reading Angelfire back in 2010. So, of course it had to be the Book Watch post this week.
While I’ve had an ARC of this book, I have not had a moment to sneak it in for a read, but I will definitely be reading this before release. I can’t wait to return to this world of Preliators and demons and find out what’s next for Ellie, Will and even Cadan. Or maybe especially Cadan.
This next installment of the series sounds seriously epic. The reapers are going after Ellie day and night. Bastian is planning to not only “destroy Ellie’s soul” but to unleash all the souls of the damned on humanity. And apparently some kind of dark power awakens in Ellie. And… if that isn’t bad enough, someone betrays her.
Yeah, definitely sounds epic to me. I guess I should read these book descriptions before I start creating these posts! I am now officially dying to find out who is the one to betray Ellie, whether Ellie can stop Bastian’s plans and save humanity and if Ellie can control whatever dark power she has.
That’s a LOT to have happen to a girl in one book. I’m so glad this book is over five hundred pages of awesome.
Wings of the Wicked is definitely a book that should be in the spotlight and there is no question that I will be reading this soon!
Some other great books releasing on January 31 include Incarnate by Jodi Meadows, Destiny and Deception by Shannon Delany and New Girl by Paige Harbison.
Places to Stalk:
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.
