Published January 31st 2012 by HarperCollins / Katherine Tegen Books 
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. 

I've been a fan from the day Angelfire came out, when I thought it would be just another read about angels and devil's and all the usual. Little did I know I would be getting myself into a whole following 12 months of depression awaiting its sequel. This series is great for anyone who's into books packed with action and some extra steamy romance. And doesn't mind waiting months in agony for the following release.


WOTW really blew my mind. All the death and the gore and the twists were almost too much for me. Every other page was like a knife to my heart and at one point I had to set the book aside to get myself together. While I was expecting some death, SOME, I would have never saw the death of Ellie's mother coming. The timing of her death, too, really set me off. So Will and Ellie finally hit it off and then BAM! Mamma's gotta go. 
Something I did see coming, though, was Ellie's dad. I mean, c'mon, I think we ALL knew something was up with him.
But Cadan and Will? Brothers? Wah?

And Will on the verge of actual DEATH? No.

Ladies and gentlemen, only another whole year to wait. And that, that is pain.
5 stars to Wings of The Wicked! Good job, Courtney!


  1. Great review and the gifs were a good touch to it :P

  2. I haven't read WOTW yet but I read Angelfire, and found it amazing. I didn't think about continuing the series because I thought it would dissappoint if I kept reading, but from this review I really want to pick up WOTW and depress myself once more lol

  3. Ahh! I loved this book so much! Agreed with you 100% ;)
