Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Wainting on Wednesday is a wekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
                                                Angelfire (Angelfire, #1)
Title: Angelfire
Series:Angelfire,  book 1
Author: Courtney Allison Moulton
Realease Date: February 15th 2011
Publisher: HarperCollins
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary:This debut, the first novel in a trilogy, is achingly romantic, terrifying, and filled with blistering action.

When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.

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.

My thoughts: One word: angels. Also the plot sounds really good, the summary is intriguing and I love paranormal books so I can't wait to read it.

I hear this story was written by an author who participated in the NaNoWriMo project which is going on write now. I know a few people that are doing that challenge as well. What a wonderful way to promote writing! I look forward to reading this one too.

I've not read any paranormal books. I think I'd have to start on a really lite series to see if this was a genre I could learn to appreciate. Any recommendations? I like children's books and young adult alike.
