Publisher's Summary

In 92 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.

Much better than book 1

So it took me a minute to get used to Celeste herself, but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed this. I definitely liked Asher more in this one, and while I didn’t find anything super shocking I did find it extremely satisfying. I can’t wait til the next one is on audio cause it’s making me anxious already.

Holy angels!

Oh my goodness! My heart is so full! I absolutely adore this book! I knew Celeste would be my favorite, but she really is my absolute favorite! She's so snarky and doesn't take crap from anyone. Soulmates just took on a whole new meaning for me 💜

Snarky, sexy, semi enemies-to-lovers

Celestial is a tennis match of snark, sass, danger, and a fun tit-for-tat, toe-to-toe, semi-enemies-to lovers spicy match-up. 

Celeste, the street-wise angel not interested in entering Elysium, is content to stay on Earth, until the mountain of sexy Archangel Asher, who helped her sister burn her wings, shows up to get her back on the straight and narrow. 

Celeste has every right to feel like she does, and wanting things to change in Elysium with their archaic rules, makes her doubt Asher's intentions, for he's in the council and hasn't changed anything. I love Celeste's attitude, and the slow-burn-turn-bonfire between her and Asher was  *chef's kiss* spicy.

I love Asher's backstory because originally, I felt he was a bit of a pompous jerk in Feather. There's so much more to him, from his guilt over a decades-old incident,  to his reluctant attraction to the fiesty, stubborn Celeste is delicious to watch unfold. 

But Asher's hiding a massive,  secret, and it could cost him everything he's ever worked for. 

When Celeste decides to get her act together,  she ends up in more danger than she could have ever imagined. Her unfailing bravery and faith in others nearly becomes her downfall. 

The whole thing was a blast to listen to, from the twists and turns, to the sizzle of Celeste and Asher's attraction, and the heartfelt moments that tugged my heart, to me, made it even better than Feather! With all that is revealed, I cannot wait to listen to Starlight next!

Emma did a fine job on narration, bringing it all to life and made it an enjoyable listen!

S3XY ANGELS, enough said

Once again Olivia Wildenstein created an immersive world that I want to stay in forever. The forbidden romance of the Serif and the Fletching was so angsty and the tension that builds to the first kiss is perfection.

Loved it!!

The second installment picked up right after the first book ended. We see more of Asher and Celeste.
Great pacing throughout the series, I loved several of the secondary characters and disliked a few of them...you will see why. I enjoyed the missions and with one mission, I was very shocked. I can’t wait to read the next book, Starlight.
The narrator, Emma Lysy did a wonderful job portraying the main characters. She used a variety of voices and inflections that were easy to follow along and understand. I highly recommend the audiobook.
Oh, my heart!! I don’t know how the author does it but this one left me with a good book hangover!! If you enjoy enemies to lovers tropes then this book is definitely for you!!

Oh sweet Angels…

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was excited to find out what happened after Feather, book 1 of Angels of Elysium. The story picks up where we left off, with Asher and his decision, and Celeste who seems lost. I do not want to give too much away and spoil the story, but I can say the plot was captivating. I cannot wait to read/listen to book 3- Starlight. The narrator did the story justice. She was animated and enthralling.

Absolutely Amazing

How do you mend broken hearts when you can’t tell anyone what you’ve done to mend them?

What do you do when you’ve spent the last 4 years giving up on earning feathers and you’re almost out of time?

What do you do when you find your enemy is actually your soulmate?

This amazing story just made my heart so full!

Amazing

After the sadness of Feather this book was like a breath of fresh air. Although Celeste and Asher have their ups and downs everything turns out ok in the end. I’m looking forward to book 3 arriving on audio also giving a big shout out to a Thomas Locklear who narrated the prologue and epilogue but isn’t mentioned on the credits 🙂

Amazing!

Wow! Just wow! I listened to the audiobook and let me just say that the narrator absolutely NAILED IT! She’s the perfect voice for Celeste. And also for Naya. The audio was wonderful to listen to! And the story is fantabulous! Feather broke my heart into little tiny pieces and Celestial started putting it back together. I love how snarky, sarcastic, and sure of herself Celeste is, and I loved her and Asher’s story. Also, Naya is completely and utterly adorable! I was really happy how the story turned out for everyone. The romance is lovely and very steamy. I can’t wait for Starlight!

Perfection!

Celestial is one of the most consuming reads that I have picked up this year, if not the most. With every book I listen to by this author just gets better and better, her stories consume you entirely, literally becoming your life because you can't put it down without finding out what happens.

Phenomenal! Nail-bitingly intense! Insanely hilarious! Emotional! These are some of the words I would use to describe this amazing story! Celestial keeps us on our feet throwing with unexpected twists and turns and the challenges our favourite characters have to deal with. After Feather my heart had been shattered and if you have just finished it and are thinking whether Celestial is worth a go trust me when I say this book soothes your poor, tender heart.

Celestial follows the life of Celeste as the title suggests, Leigh's hot-tempered, brutally honest fletching friend. Celeste has not had an easy time after a tragic event she can no longer abide by the Angels rules she deems unjust, unfair and sometimes down right abhorrent. She is strong, fierce, protective and so incredibly stubborn some of the things she ends up doing made me laugh so hard I cried. But she is never more stubborn than when it comes to her friends and the people she loves.

Seraph Asher is known by many as the golden boy of Elysium but not to Celeste. Despite this, they both form a bond through shared loss, pain and guilt. Asher will do anything to atone for his mistakes but for Celeste he holds a secret deep in his heart. A secret that could get him in a lot of trouble. This secret changes Celeste's view of him immensely. Asher is the typical alpha male, possessive asshole main guy I just love. A lot of Olivia's main men you first end up hating but then Olivia gets sneaky and you suddenly find yourself loving them with your entire being.

Celestial instantly draw you in and captivates you so much you forget that it's not real life and the narrator chosen just enhances your reading experience. The narrator really brings the story to life doing the characters justice. I can't wait for the next book in this amazing series. This was the very first series about Angel's I've ever read and it was just so perfect. The ending of the book was absolutely wonderful and just everything!

Superb

Mother of all happy endings this was fantastic. I was lucky enough to receive and advanced audio copy in return for a non biased review. This Is book two in the Angels of Elysium series and we met Celeste and Asher in book one. If I am honest I took a while to warm to Celeste as she was so different from Leigh our main character in book one. Still she wormed her way into my heart. Asher was the perfect other half for her balancing her out and the chemistry was off the charts.
Like book one Celeste is a fledgling Angel and needs to earn feathers by reforming sinners in order to ascend to Elysium. Unlike Leigh Celeste has so many to earn and in such a short timeframe the task seems all but impossible. Will she earn her feathers in time? You need to read or listen to find out.
As for that epilogue oh my goodness I am beyond excited for the next book in this series.
Brilliant you are gona love this one guys. 5/5 and can’t wait for more.
