Paranormal Pick: Angelfire
by Courtney Allison Moulton
Harper Collins, 2011
Available March 9, 2011
Part romance, part girl super-hero, part paranormal, part Biblical allusion, Angelfire is a fast-paced read sure to resonate with fans of Twilight and Maximum Ride.
Ellie has weird nightmares and premonitions about fighting monsters and demons with swords of angelfire. When she keeps running into an interesting older and sexy guy named Will, she realizes it's not an accident. Will tells her that they have a past together--and it's not any every day, ordinary, ho-hum past. Ellie has been reborn AGAIN and is the Preliator, the one hope of the human race to conquer those evil demons sent to destroy us. Will is her Guardian, sworn to protect her no matter what.
This revelation would be surprising and hard to handle for anyone, but for Ellie, who is best friends with Landon, a boy she has known since childhood (at least in this current lifetime), how does she juggle her human friends, her fueding parents, her hot, sexy guardian who she is falling in love with, her nightly lessons and training in demon-killing, fighting evil, saving humankind, and still trying to pass her high school classes?
If Ellie and Will fail, Ellie's soul will forever die and humans will be no more.
Recommended grades 9-up. Underage drinking and party scenes may not be suitable for younger readers.
