Celestial (Angels of Elysium #2) by Olivia Wildenstein
In ninety-two days, the feathered appendages that link me to the people I loathe finally come off. Dear, winglets, you will not be missed.
Celeste has spent the last four years building a life outside of angelic guilds—parties, check—pursuing human ambitions instead of celestial ones—college, check—and shedding feathers across Parisian cobblestones and more recently New York sidewalks—speaking her mind, always check.
She swore off angels, but the death of the woman who took her in the night Leigh died brings them soaring back into her life . . . and not just any angel but the most detestable one, the one complicit in Leigh’s death—Seraph Asher.
Although Celeste tells the archangel to feather off, the unreasonably pretty and obstinate man doesn’t leave her alone. He returns and insists she complete her wings. When she asks him for one good reason to do so, he gives her an unbeatable one: what he did with Leigh’s soul.
Asher never meant to share his damning secret, but he knows it’s the only way to save Celeste—the rebellious Fletching he can’t get out of his head . . . or heart.
Again, wowza! 5 amazing stars for this emotional rollercoaster. I read books 1 and 2 so quickly, I am now dying for the 3rd book that doesn’t come out till December! Ughh. Anyways, if you can’t tell, I loved this book/ series, and I can’t recommend it enough.
This book picks up 4 years after the first book, following Celeste, Leigh’s best friend. Celeste is about to lose her wings, her immortality, and her soul because she has given up on completing her feathers. When Seraph Asher, an unwanted blast from the past shows up, Celeste thinks nothing he says will get her to work on her wings. That is until he says the one thing that gets her to fight for her life again.
Oh boy, I can’t say much more because then it gives away the first and the third book, but I will say, read this book! This book tackles all the same hypocrisies of the angel world, but with Celeste and Asher using their voices for change, it brings some hardships that could mean they lose everything.
