Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Publisher: Harper Collins / Katherine Tegen Books
Publication Date: February 15, 2011
Page Count: 464

Description from Goodreads:
This debut, the first novel in a trilogy, is achingly romantic, terrifying, and filled with blistering action.

When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.

While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

I finished reading Angerfire last night and have been trying ever since to think of something to write that would explain the AWESOMENESS that is this book! I'll start by saying that before I was even half way through I was on seeing if there would be another book after this one...and I'm SO happy to say that yes, this will be a trilogy!! The only bad part is having to wait til 2012 to read it!!

Don't walk, run to the nearest store to get your hands on this book!
