Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once. While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

2011 books just get better and better! Courtney Allison Moulton wrote an amazing debut book that I couldn’t put down. Ellie and Will were electric. Angelfire had non-stop action that you just can’t resist. I loved that Angelfire was about reapers. It was the first reaper book that I’ve read, and it makes me want to seek out more.
The romance in this book was incredibly well written. Every piece of dialogue left me hanging. Moulton did a lovely job capturing the voice of a teenage girl. Ellie annoyed me at some parts because she only sounded like a spoiled teenager, but that is my only complaint about this book.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, because I’m sure they will be great! Courtney Allison Moulton is a debut author to watch because she’s going to write great things.
