Squishy Bloody Crack for Reapers: Day 13 + An Extra Peopleburger

THIS TEASER COULD BE A BIT SPOILERY.
BE WARNED.

ANGELFIRE ArtI bought a plain white cake at the grocery store after school, and as soon as I got home, I realized I didn't want tonight to be just Will and me. I wanted all of his friends there, so he knew that he still had them, that he hadn't lost everything but me. I called up Lauren, Marcus, and even Ava and made sure they'd be at my grandmother's house. Lauren, thankfully, volunteered to come over and hang out with me before the party.

I also bought some icing tubes to scribble all over Will's birthday cake, but once I got to decorating, I decided I didn't want to make some boring cake. I wanted to create something that would make him laugh. Lauren sat across from me at the kitchen table as I kinda drew snarling stick reapers with angry eyes and sharp, gaping mouths on their bubble heads and outspread wings, all surrounding a figure in the middle who was supposed to be Will. I stopped in the middle of the icing drawing and frowned disapprovingly. The stick Will didn't look much like real Will, so I dabbed on a pair of green eyes, outlined him a pair of wings, and painted a sword in his hand that wasn't quite as fancy as the real thing. Then I took the red icing tube and splattered the whole cake with it until it was a freaking massacre of frosting stick reapers. I even smeared red on the sword and wrote HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILL across the top in the drippy red icing. Nana glared at me and cleared her throat noticeably as she passed the table, and Lauren looked up at her apologetically. Regular cakes are no fun. This one was awesome.

At seven, Nana left to go play poker with her girl friends. (Or I should say she went to go destroy her girl friends at poker. Since she was psychic, it was sort of cheating.) I called Will to come over. Everyone arrived a few minutes before he did and went into the kitchen. It would have been impossible to truly surprise Will, since he'd notice Marcus's and Lauren's cars parked in the driveway - which of course he - but he came inside very confused. I had on a ridiculous grin as I led him through the house toward the kitchen.

As soon as Will saw the cake, he burst out laughing and shook his head, running a hand through his hair. His cheeks were beginning to buzz with red and my heart lifted. "Ellie, what is this?"

This was one of those scenes where the atmosphere was a little...lighter and not so intense and sad but don't be fooled, the pain and all that was there, just beneath the surface. Yesterday was supposed to end my whole event in celebration of Wings of the Wicked but my awesome girl friend, Jena from SHORTIE SAYS..., had an amazing post that will conclude these two weeks of awesomeness. (Well, I hope it was two whole weeks of awesomeness for all of you.)

I don't have much more to say because Jena's amazing post says it all...AND THEN SOME. So, read on and enjoy!

- My Character Gush Sesh -

1) So, it's no secret that I ADORE Courtney Allison Moulton's Angelfire Series. There's just SO much to fall in love with. It's action-packed, unique, romantic, sexy, funny, thrilling... and just plain all-around stunning.

Also, Will. You all know Will right? This fella right here...


Yeah.... let's just take a second to stare at him shall we? 

-

Did you take your second?

-

Oh wait, you need more time?

-

Still?

-

OKAY GOD, I KNOW HE'S GORGEOUS... BUT MY TURN NOW.

-

I forgot what I was talking about now. Jesus! ...Oh wait I remember, Will. Well, with this series... Will happens to be one of my FAVORITE book boyfriends. I absolutely adored him in Angelfire and then in Wings Of The Wicked grew to love him even more. He has these glowing green eyes. The way he can fight, the fact that he has given up everything and would do anything for Ellie never fails to amaze me. He's sexy. He's strong. Everything he does just completely melts my heart. I am absolutely DYING to read more about him in book3.

2) Ellie. I love how she's small and petite. With red hair, and KICK ASS fighting skills. She's one of those main character that can always hold her own. I absolutely love going through all her battles with her. Whether it's with friends, with Will, with Cadan, with reapers, or whoever! As anxious as I am for her story to continue in book3, I also don't want it to end!

3) And I must mention Cadan. So... in Angelfire, I thought hey he's good looking and funny... whatever, I still LOVE WILL WITH ALL MY HEART. But... BUT... after reading Wings Of The Wicked, I actually really grew to love Cadan. He's got more in his heart than you think. Not to mention he's absolutely sexy and has the best lines ever! (cough I'm still Team Will... well TEAM WELLIE. Though I'd take Cadan for myself if he uh needs someone.)

Okay, well you've probably had enough of me raving about the characters, if you want to know more about what I thought of the book, next is my review!! :)

- Jena's Wings Of The Wicked Review -

I can't even begin to explain how much Courtney outdid herself with this book. Angelfire was fantastic, but Wings Of The Wicked was pure brilliance. Pure perfection. I'm in complete awe.

We start off right in the action, Ellie in full kick-ass swing...
Preliator style. She's still trying to juggle fighting and her normal
life and it's all exhausting. And hunts only seem to becoming harder as
stronger reapers come after her. Then she receives a message, a help of
sort from someone she least expects... Cadan. She's not sure to trust
him, but before soon everything comes crashing down. The worlds worst
reapers are after her, her emotions and Will's are all over the place,
she's getting help from someone she least expects, and her human life is
crashing down around her. Ellie must figure out a way to set things
right before she loses everything she loves.

I'm not even sure I'm going to be able to put into words how amazing
this book was. So please bear with me while I just spit out
complements.  Wings of the Wicked starts off right in the action,
the first page, hell, the first chapter packs a serious punch. And
things just continue from there. My emotions were reeling all over the
place throughout this book. This book has everything you could ever ask
for. There's normalcy, angels, demons, fights, love, gut-wrenching
heartache, action, laughs, kick-ass moments, and everything in between.

Ellie is an outstanding all-around fantastic protagonist. Shes strong,
yet vulnerable. She's kick-ass... I mean she can just be like 'Oh hey
reaper, *chop with my fancy angel fire swords*, there goes your head!"
And she does it. She's still caring towards her family and friends and
completely cares about them, while also understanding and caring for her
duties as the Preliator too.

There were so many other characters that I loved through out this book.
Nathaniel and Lauren were the ones you cannot help but love. Marcus...
funny, flirty, strong. Ava... I still don't like her, but she certainly
can kick ass. Kate, always being the funny, caring best friend! Ellie's
Nana, I loved her role in this book! And, oh hmmm Cadan.
In Angelfire, I liked Cadan a lot but I didn't love him.
At least not like I loved Will. I have to admit in Wings Of The Wicked,
I ADORED Cadan. I finally grew to love him. His wittiness, his
vulnerability we get shown, and his strength. And, I cannot wait to see
more of him in the next book.

Finally, Will. It is impossible to not fall in love with him. His
perfect body, his perfect green eyes, his perfect protectiveness, his
perfect emotions, his perfect willingness, his perfect love for Ellie. I
love everything about him. I loved watching him kick reapers asses, I
loved watching him fight for Ellie and doing everything he does for her.
I love all the little things he does, as well as the big things. He's
given up his life for her, and I can't imagine not loving him. He's an
overall perfect character to me.

I could probably rant on forever, but I won't.
I just want to tell you all that Wings Of The Wicked
is thrilling, emotional, kick-ass, fun, beautiful, and absolutely
perfect. Courtney pull out all her weapons and wrapped them up into one
big, gorgeous masterpiece. I was sucked in from page one and pulled
completely through to the end. I loved every chapter, every page, every
line, and every word.
