"The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon clarity of the fight scenes is unimpeachable. This is one heroine who's happy to take matters (and angelic swords) into her own hands."

First there are nightmares.
Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.
Then come the memories.
When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream.
Now she must hunt.
Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.

"A dark and compelling world of action and intrigue... Readers will find themselves engrossed in the story until its powerful conclusion - then anxiously awaiting the second installment."
"The action scenes have enough intensity and adrenaline to send Buffy home hanging her head in shame, and Ellie is likable both as a high-octane heroine and a regular girl coping with family and social drama. The biblical mythology the story is based upon is compelling, and, of course, the sword fighting and butt kicking make this a ride worth taking."
"Moulton crafts an exciting second entry in the Angelfire trilogy, extending preexisting story lines involving Ellie, Will, Cadan, and bad guy Bastian with terrific battle scenes and some romance, too."
"At last a YA novel about a sword-yielding, butt-kicking 17-year-old girl who has been destined to fight the forces of evil; by her side is Will, her
guardian angel protector. Ellie is not that contemporary teen of other novels, who constantly needs rescuing by her immortal boyfriend. Packed
with blistering action, mystery, romance, and terror, readers will be glued from the first page to the last, breathlessly waiting for book two of this
