Book Review-Shadows in the Silence

I finished reading Shadows in the Silence (Angelfire #3) by Courtney Allsion Moulton on Monday night for an Around the World ARC Tour.

From Goodreads:

Your strength in heart and hand will fall. . . .
Ellie knows that the darkest moments are still to come, and she has everything to fight for:

She must fight for Will.
The demonic have resorted to their cruelest weapons to put Will in mortal danger, and Ellie makes an unlikely alliance to save him and to stop Lilith and Sammael, who seek to drown the world in blood and tear a hole into Heaven.

She must fight for humanity.
As the armies of Hell rise and gather for the looming End of Days, Ellie and her band of allies travel to the world’s darkest and most ancient regions in her quest to come into her full glory as the archangel Gabriel.

And Ellie must save herself.
Her humanity withers beneath the weight of her cold archangel power, but Ellie must hold tight to who she is and who she loves as she prepares for the ultimate battle for Heaven and Earth.

In this final installment in the Angelfire trilogy, Courtney Allison Moulton brings her dark world of epic battles and blistering romance to a blazing bright conclusion.

While I enjoyed the first two books in the Angelfire series, this book had a hard time keeping my attention.  There was too much religion stuff, names of Angels and Demons and things I couldn't remember or keep straight.  And there was lots of action but I couldn't remember why certain things had to happen.

I found a lot of the things Ellie said or thought to be cheesy.  And I feel like everything came to Ellie too easy.  She needed some hard-to-get item from some scary angel yet the angel gave it up easily.  She needed to find a relic--she found it and was given it freely.  It just seemed all too neat.

Maybe I'm just in a cranky mood, but I was hoping for more in this final book in the trilogy.  Unfortunately, I just couldn't stay interested.

I gave this book a rating of 3/5.

Shadows in the Silence will be released on January 29, 2013.
