Review SHADOWS IN THE SILENCE by COURTNEY ALLISON MOULTON @HarperTeen



Book Description

January 29, 2013 Angelfire (Book 3)

Your strength in heart and hand will fall. . . .
Ellie knows that the darkest moments are still to come, and she has everything to fight for:

She must fight for Will.
The demonic have resorted to their cruelest weapons to put Will in mortal danger, and Ellie makes an unlikely alliance to save him and to stop Lilith and Sammael, who seek to drown the world in blood and tear a hole into Heaven.

She must fight for humanity.
As the armies of Hell rise and gather for the looming End of Days, Ellie and her band of allies travel to the world’s darkest and most ancient regions in her quest to come into her full glory as the archangel Gabriel.

And Ellie must save herself.
Her humanity withers beneath the weight of her cold archangel power, but Ellie must hold tight to who she is and who she loves as she prepares for the ultimate battle for Heaven and Earth.

In this final installment in the Angelfire trilogy, Courtney Allison Moulton brings her dark world of epic battles and blistering romance to a blazing bright conclusion.

MY THOUGHTS
ADORED IT, LOVED IT, SAD IT IS OVER

+++slight spoilers after the first paragraph - especially if you haven't read the first two! +++

I seriously questioned myself when I first started reading Angelfire.  It wasn't my type of book, I had read lots of books similar to this, and on and on.  I was a still bit intrigued and so I read the second one Wings of the Wicked  which nicely picked up the pace and got me more involved with Ellie and Will. OH MY!  The conclusion totally rocked! I swear this was like a video game in book form with non stop action, serious butt kicking and enough romance to keep me sighing.  In this conclusion, Moulton really won me over and I am going to have to reread Angelfire to figure out why it didn't click with me at first.  I feel like *I* did something wrong to not get that book at first after reading this one.

So Ellie has really come into her own with her powers and can now wield her weapon with the best of them.  She is no longer the unsure girl and knows what she wants and had begun to accept the support of Cadan (interesting familial twist there!).  Although this could have seriously gone into the dreaded love triangle, it stopped just short.  Will really needs to loosen up a bit and stop doing everything by the book.  Thankfully by the end of this one, Ellie does just that for him and forces him to be a bit more open.  I love a strong girl!

Ah, the ending, so hard to take at first but I was really happy with the outcome and I think you will be too! Yeah, I can't let you know how it ends since that would ruin it for everyone but take my word, you will swoon on the last page.  I am really going to miss Ellie and the other supporting cast. Maybe there is an opening for Cadan to have a spin off.  I adore him and would love to get to know him a bit better.   Parents:  video game like violence and some serious kissing.  I look forward to more from this author now!
