Ellie is still trying to have a normal high school life while hunting demons and practicing fighting techniques with her Guardian, Will. She longs for a relationship with Will and like any teen age girl, moons over him. As bits and pieces of her past lives come forward, she learns that a relationship with Will just isn’t in the cards because he is forbidden to be anything more than her protector. The evil demons are becoming more and more aggressive, attacking in daylight and out for blood. Literally out for Ellie’s blood. That part about her blood is truly an interesting twist towards the end of the story.
I enjoyed this first in this series and it reminded me a bit of Buffy and there are sparks of brilliance in the dialogue but the whole story was a bit slow for me. I really like the characters and when the action kicks into high gear, it is a wonderful thing! Ellie also has a new admirer in the form of a demon named Cadan. He is dark and full of fun where Will is light and sweetness. I can see he is a real match for Ellie since Will is pretty much off limits for her. Of course there is an epic battle and you are left wondering who the victor will be in this fight between good and evil since the ending is not complete where it leaves off.
I’ve been wanting to start Angelfire. Its premise sounds heavenly and action-packed. And your review of its sequel makes me even more interested in getting Angelfire.
