Wish List Wednesday (61)

Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire, 2) by Courtney Allison Moulton, Feburary 14, 2012. Published by Katherine Tegen Books.
Life as the Preliator is harder than Ellie ever imagined. Balancing real life with the responsibility of being Heaven’s warrior is a challenge for Ellie. Her relationship with Will has become all business, though they both long for each other. And now that the secret of who she really is has come out, so have Hell’s strongest reapers. Grown bold and more vicious, the demonic threaten her in the light of day and stalk her in the night.

She’s been warned. Cadan, a demonic reaper, comes to her with information about Bastian’s new plan to destroy Ellie’s soul and use an ancient relic to wake all the souls of the damned and unleash them upon humanity. As she fights to stay ahead of Bastian’s schemes , the revelations about those closest to her awaken a dark power within Ellie that threatens to destroy everything—including herself.

She’ll be betrayed. Treachery comes even from those whom she loves, and Ellie is broken by the deaths of those who stood beside her in this Heavenly war. Still, she must find a way to save the world, herself, and her love for Will. If she fails, there will be hell to pay.
Why: Because Angelfire (my review) was absolutely incredible and I want  need to know what will happen next for Ellie and Will.

Black Butler 2 by Yana Toboso, 2011 (originally published in 2007). Published by Yen Press.

Sebastian Michaelis. Occupation: Butler. He makes his master's afternoon tea, polishes the silver, and ...heads up murder investigations?! As London is seized by fear when Jack the Ripper begins his killing spree in Whitechapel, Queen Victoria commands Ciel Phantomhive and his seemingly superhuman butler Sebastian to step in. What will happen when the case takes a surprising turn that shatters one of the few truths Ciel holds dear?
Why: I found Black Butler 1 (my review) to be one of the most intriguing manga I have read lately, plus Sebastian has to be one of the most interesting characters ever.
