YA Book Review: Angel Burn



Title: Angel Burn ( Angel #1 )

Author: L.A Weatherly

Published: 2011 by Candlewick Press

Type: Paranormal, Angels, Fantasy

Paperback, 464 Pages

Source: Bought online



Summery: 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. 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.

They’re out for your soul . . . and they don’t have heaven in mind.



My Review:

I started reading this book because i won Angel Fever Arc, not thinking i was gonna win.
I told myself if i did win i was gonna buy the books so i did. I have heard amazing review for this series.
and being really surprised that i enjoyed this book so much. i like angel based books but i haven’t read one in a while that i just loved so much, and angel burn has proved to be an amazing read for any YA reader.

It is easy to follow along with. it’s not to much of a complex story. I thought the story felt more realistic
for theme. Some angel based story’s come out really cheesy and boring at times, but not Angel Burn. It’s has you gripping each page. A lot of action. I like how the author didn’t rush the love story in this book.  I really get annoyed when that kinda stuff is rushed like “i never meet you but i love you junk”, But in this story you got to watch them grow on each other from Hate ( not really hate but the best word i could think of at this moment)  to falling in love.
( Might Count as Spoilers )
The Angels in this book are not good like you would think a angel would be, no. Angel’s are down right scary in this book. They trick Humans into loving them and doing everything for them like a cult, while sucking there energy right from them making them ether insane or just sick.

Alex was sent to kill Willow by the CIA, Alex soon finds out that she is not just a Angel but Human, a Half breed. Instead of killing her he tries to save her from the CIA that was takeing over by the same thing his meant to kill…Angels. Now Alex’s job is to kill Angels, protecting Humans from them. but after finding out that the CIA has been corrupt he takes willow to New Mexico to what he thought was his last hope to saving her. The Angels wants Willow dead cause she is the answer to saving the world and destroying the Angels. Alex starts having feelings for Willow but tries to push away cause Willow is still part Angel, and his not really sure what to think about it.

The ending had me going ” What..WHAT” and then more whats. i remember screaming to myself going like ” NO THAT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO HAPPENS!” and then ” My poor baby Alex “. The ending has you gripping the pages from the suspense.

I got so zoned into L.A Weatherly’s writing, she really knows what the readers like. I highly recommend this book to anyone who love YA books. I think everyone will enjoy this.
It’s a great twist to the Normal Angel story’s out right now. So happy i got to chance to read this book and can’t wait to read the next book Angel Fire and My ARC Angel Fever. A lot of people say there aren’t much a fan of the covers but i really like them. I think the Cover is simple and eye catching for the people who like to judge a book by the cover ( Wink Wink* I know who you are ).

If you haven’t read this book, just pick it up and read it. You wont regret it, At-least i hope not. If you don’t like this book then please let me know why you did’t. The Book is pretty thick but not to thick, It’s 449 something pages long.

Overall: I Love this book and has become My favorite out of Angel type books. Beautifully done. YA fans will enjoy it.
