Published by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 480 pages.

SHADOWS IN THE SILENCE is the third and final full-length book in the author’s Angelfire series.


There are a ton of amazing books releasing the week of January 29th, but a I’ve read, loved, shed tears over, reviewed, am still heartbroken because I’ve had to say goodbye to, and desperately want to re-read SHADOWS IN THE SILENCE. So there was absolutely no doubt in my mind as to which book I’d be spotlighting this week.

SHADOWS IN THE SILENCE is a the perfect ending to an addictive and amazing, heartwarming and heartbreaking and action-packed series. The battles are epic. Questions are answered. Choices are made. Lives are lost.

I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to say goodbye. Though with the release of the eNovella A DANCE WITH DARKNESS, I get one more peek into this world. Even if it’s a look at Madeleine’s story and not Ellie, Will and Cadan’s.

As I have read this book, I can’t pretend to guess at just what the outcome will be when Ellie must fight for Will as the description mentions. Or when she has to battle for all of humanity. Or fight to save herself. Because I know what Ellie must do and has done. I know what the outcome is. I know what price must be paid. And I know whether it’s a heartbreaking or happily-ever-after ending.

I can say, however, that I was glued to this book from start to finish. I was caught up in a tale that felt very epic in nature. I was transported into this world which revealed more about Ellie’s past, set the characters and readers alike on a quest, put Ellie on a collision course with destiny, and which built to an incredibly climactic finish.

Of course I won’t say anything more about that. Or about the decision Ellie had to make. Or about how certain characters felt about her choices. Or about who lived and who died.

But I can say that this series was an absolute pleasure to read, it’s one that I’ve re-read just recently and loved even more than I did the first time. It’s one that will forever hold a place in my heart and on my eBook shelves. And it’s written by an author who I will keep on my radar for as long as I’m a reader.

Oh and in case I forgot to mention it, this book was the best one of the series.

So, yes, SHADOWS IN THE SILENCE is a book that I most definitely have watched, will continue to watch and am so thrilled to call the book to watch for the week of January 29th. Even with all the other amazing titles releasing that week.

About the Book

Goodreads description:

Your strength in heart and hand will fall. . . .

Ellie knows that the darkest moments are still to come, and she has everything to fight for:

She must fight for Will.
The demonic have resorted to their cruelest weapons to put Will in mortal danger, and Ellie makes an unlikely alliance to save him and to stop Lilith and Sammael, who seek to drown the world in blood and tear a hole into Heaven.

She must fight for humanity.
As the armies of Hell rise and gather for the looming End of Days, Ellie and her band of allies travel to the world’s darkest and most ancient regions in her quest to come into her full glory as the archangel Gabriel.

And Ellie must save herself.
Her humanity withers beneath the weight of her cold archangel power, but Ellie must hold tight to who she is and who she loves as she prepares for the ultimate battle for Heaven and Earth.

In this final installment in the Angelfire trilogy, Courtney Allison Moulton brings her dark world of epic battles and blistering romance to a blazing bright conclusion.
