As I clicked on one of my favorite blogs (Narratively Speaking) I read a post on an Angelfire ARC contest. It's a debut novel and when I read the synopsis, I wanted a copy BAD. So, if you want a copy too, head on over to Courtney Allison Moulton's site and enter.
Here's some praise for the book:
“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 exciting trilogy!”
--Becky Anderson, Anderson’s Bookshop
“When it comes to the order of meanings listed in Dictionaries under the term 'YA Romance' it's past time to push 'yearning for the unobtainable' down the list in favor of ‘an emotional rip tide fueled by subsumed memories of a seven hundred year intermittent but evolving and passionate devotion, gradually resurfacing amidst the backdrop of round two of the War Against Heaven,’ and ANGELFIRE is just the book to do it. This book throws so many satisfying emotional elements, inventive action scenes, and even a few philosophical tidbits at its readers that they cannot fail to feel themselves in the midst rather than on the margins of the story. Ellie may ask a lot of questions but the only thing her audience will be asking is when is book two.”
-- Kenny Brechner, DDG Booksellers
“This is an amazing, powerful novel with lots of action and fighting scenes that will keep you on your toes. Ellie is a strong, hard-core character you wouldn't want to mess with, and this novel is one you wouldn't want to miss out on.”
-- Lydia Hutcheons, Barbara’s Bookstore
