Book Review: Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

Rating: StarStarStarStar

 

Willow knows she’s different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people’s dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself does. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces and that he’s one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil.

In the first book in an action-packed romantic trilogy, L. A. Weatherly sends readers on a thrill ride of a road trip  —  and depicts the human race at the brink of a future as catastrophic as it is deceptively beautiful.

(Angel Trilogy #1)

What an exciting new spin for an angel-themed YA!

Who ever thought that angels can be very, very bad, huh?

The story will take you into the heart of a cult (kind of) that worships angels, into the mind of a girl who does not accept her angel heritage, into the soul of an assassin who find courage to love again despite the loss and pain.

I liked the constant shifting of perspective: from Willow to Alex, from Raziel to Jonah. It quickens the time for me to grasp the bits and pieces that made up the story. After a few chapters, the action began. And what a trip that was!

I love Alex! He’s strong, efficient, and (almost) invincible. Not to mention emotionally distraught. Oh, how i love it in a man who has excess baggage (but not too much)! I connected with him in more ways than one.

Willow is a wuss (in the end), HA! For someone with angelic powers, she gave in to fear and panic. She should be determined and resilient like Alex.

I disliked the push/pull drama between Willow and Alex; i thought it was too long. But, by the time they were together already, the lines the author threw at me were too sappy. Or teenager-y. You get the drift. Nevertheless, the cabin scenes made up for it; much more with the breakup scenes. The emotions are real, i felt for Alex.

The cult feel of the Church of Angels creeps me out. Religious fanatics are really dangerous, eh?

The climax is suspenseful enough to keep me at the edge of my seat (or bed). It was nail-biting!

Pure and kind angels? *snickers* i think not.
