It was effective and intriguing. Regarding Globus ‘s “Preliator”, the author has stated, “I write most of my fight scenes to this song. Things build to a strong climax before Moulton ties the majority of things up. What I noticed right off, when I started reading, was the fluent writing. Moulton was throwing in all allisoh fights, whether it was a practice with Will or a real battle with a reaper–and yet, Ellie hasn’t fully mastered her power.
Well, there were some small flaws plotwise that bothered me but nevertheless I can safely say that I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Moulton has stated that her protagonist “is a bit agelfire a reluctant heroine at first, but she really steps up to the plate when she needs to.
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 courtnney etc.
What is up with the Dad? Or, since Will never knows exactly how long it takes for Ellie to reincarnate, Will could feel bitter towards Ellie. His words, his mysterious, alluring looks! View all 47 comments.
Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton
The way her relationship with Will evolves makes up a strong part of this book, strengthening both their characters in a tremendous way and paving things for the next installment.
She’s a shallow character who wasn’t brought to life in the pages I read. Why should you read this book?
Angelfire is a series of young adult urban fantasy novels by author Courtney Allison Moultonbeginning with the inaugural entry of the same name. It focused much more on the angels and the Fallen, instead of “Heaven, blah, blah, blah.
I have mixed feelings about this book, and I haven’t even finished reading it yet–I’m past pages though–but having been curious about what other people thought of it, I looked up reviews here in Angelfiire and bam. I’m looking at you, Fallen.
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 questions and mystery to have you clamoring for the sequel. Another thing that This book has it all; amazing premise, awesome cover, and a super huge marketing scheme that made this courtnwy one of the most hyped releases of the year The thing that really gets me about Will is that he’s not in any way essential to the plot of this book.
She’s always fantasizing over Will, and it’s obvious that Will likes her too, but Moulton is just holding back from that, you know? About Courtney Allison Moulton. Once Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead are released later this year, I wasn’t going to have anything else that I was so obsessed with getting my hands on.
Aside from occasionally amusing asides Ell names her white car “Marshmallow”this book is all over the place. Isn’t the first rule of writing to hook the reader from the get go? Courtney Allison Moulton — you put a spin on angel mythology like no other. I drink it up like chocolate from a chocolate fountain. You can tell the author was really trying to do something more with it.
Is she eventually going to be a mere-mortal? 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. That’s why we don’t have a dumb main character, but a smart one with a strong personality.
And every time you die, a little piece of me dies with you. I have to admit that the first few pages caught me–actually, Mr. No flare, nothing engaging, nothing to stir the reader’s interest, to get the juices flowing.
In the series finale, Ellie prepares for her role in the climactic battle. Simply being able to fight doesn’t automatically make a female character ‘strong’. A lot of hypothesis on the angel world.
