Summery: As half-angel Willow strives to save the world from her parasitic otherworldly kin, romance and tension heat up to a climactic finale.

In the devastated remains of the world, millions of people live in “refugee” camps provided by the angels who have all but enslaved humanity. As this angelic stranglehold tightens, Willow and Alex are recruiting and training new Angel Killers while struggling to hold ground on the celestial battlefield. But Willow continues to have feelings for Seb, and her love and resolve are tested as a shattering revelation sends Alex on a separate journey. Now that the final battle versus the angels is about to begin-and the fate of the world hangs in the balance-each of them must face the consequences of their own choices. Will love endure? Will the human race survive?

* Don’t read this review if you haven’t read the whole series it may have spoilers.

My Review: After what happens to Mexico City Willow and who left including Alex, Search for AKs to take down the angels once and for all. Alex finds out news that might just stop them so he takes off without telling the real reason on what’s going on. You could really feel Willows emotions thew this part. It was so heart breaking.

You watch Seb and willow go threw a lot on there a relationship. there feeling and closeness has changed. You watch Seb fall in love with someone who wasn’t Willow, but he was so suborn to see it threw out the whole book. After a year since Alex left Willow gets a vision short of, that something huge was gonna happen. She sets off to Pawtucket NY with Seb to try and stop it and her father who is an Angel. she comes across some her old classmates and Nina. she finds out that somehow her energy was protecting the people who she has encountered, giving off some kind of immunity to the angels.

Angel Fever is just one huge sad depressing ride. It  puts you threw a lot of heart break and Emotional battles. it is auction packed.

I understood where Willow was coming from after Alex returns but then again i wanted to slap her out of it.  Willow is a tide annoying in Angel fever,  I just wanted to know more about Alex and what he was going threw but all i got was a chapter pretty much. I just really wanted more.

Seb finally realizes that is over Willow, he was just too suborn to see it. I really hated how Willow would mess with Sebs feelings all the time. Just leave the guy alone. Willow and Seb will always have a Brother/Sister relationship. it just would’t work any other way.

Angel Fever is a good ending to the whole series, but it could of had more. i just felt like the story was rushed is spot that needed more. and parts that just needed to be rushed cause it was getting dull.

Willow is not the same person she was in Angel Burn, but that is understandable for what she has went threw. She is a lot tougher and a fighter in Angel Fever. she isn’t someone you messed with that is for sure. She has been threw so much turmoil.

The ending was adorable and cute a great way to end the story. Willow and Alex gets there happy ending, And so does Seb.

I thought the cover was confusing at first but once you get towards the middle you start to understand. The cover is really pretty. I do like the US covers better then the UKs. The UKs covers just look really dark and Gothic looking.

Angel Fever was a great way to end the series but yes it did have it’s up and downs threw the book, But the whole concept was the story is interesting. Angel Burn is still my favorite of the series, and Angel Fever isn’t as good as Angel Fire. I did still really enjoyed the book.

Overall: Pretty Cover, Good Concept, Amazing Adventure, A really great series. I will repeat this for the 3rd time. READ THE SERIES!

Summery: In book two of L. A. Weatherly’s wildly romantic, action-packed trilogy, the angels are back with a vengeance . . . and they don’t have heaven in mind.

In the wake of the Second Wave, the angel menace has exploded, and Alex and Willow are on the lam. They connect with a fledgling group of angel killers, and Alex takes charge of training. Meanwhile, Willow dreams of a mysterious boy, and when brooding, gorgeous Seb shows up in the flesh, he turns out to be another — possibly the world’s only other — half angel. When Alex enlists this rival to help keep Willow safe, he can’t predict what chemistry will pass between them . . . or how far Willow might go to keep Alex safe. Will their love endure or spell doomsday for the human race?

My Review: Talk about a emotional roller-coaster this book was. So many plot turns, made my mind go crazy.

Alex and Willow go threw many battles for there relationship, when a half-angel Seb comes along. I wasn’t really happy with the love triangle in this book. I didn’t really mind it, Seb has really grown on me but i would of just liked it to be Alex and Willow with the whole love triangle thing.

Willow and Alex go to Mexico to find more AKs if there was any, to stop the angels from taking over the world after the Second Wave. Angels are taking over and draining the Humans energy Willow gets a vision to got to Mexico City and that when to they come across a couple of AKs, and one Alex has known for a while, And Seb the half Angel.

Seb has been looking for another Half-Angel for years, he always knew it was a girl around his age, he was about to give up on her, but then he finds a Photo Willow and goes to Mexico City for find her.

I have mix-feelings over this book. There was a few parts i felt like it just dragged on to long, and then there was parts that left me puzzled, with the love triangle between Will and Alex and then Willow and Seb. I just wanted Willow to be with Alex and i can have Seb…yes me want him to myself.

Alex starts getting sick in this book, and Willow starts thinking it’s her fault because of being half-angel and all with the Angel burn that angels give Humans after draining there energy. When that was happening i fault soo bad like Alex LOVES i mean LOVES Willow. But there was parts Alex was being such an arse. I didn’t blame Willow for going to Seb.

The book might not be as good as the first but still a really good read. Has lots more action in it. Plot turns that will have you griping the pages. You watch Willow Grow to be stronger and more brave. She when’t from being a Weird kid at a high school to having to save the human race in such a short time.

The ending is  short of a happy ending minus the world almost ending and more things to come. The Love Willow and Alex has is so strong and heart warming. Yes there was moments where i wanted to go threw the book and slap them both for acting so silly!.

Everyone i think will like the new characters in this book like seb and SAM! Sam has this Attitude about him, he leaves off this”he doesn’t care but you just have to love him anyways” Feel.

And Seb has had a ruff childhood growing up in Mexico. for a while he didn’t care what the angels did really all he cared about was finding his Half angel but you watch grow to want to save the world from the angels for what they where doing to the human race.

The book is THICK! filled with a LOT of pages. I couldn’t believe how big the book was when i opened the box i was like ” Holy Mother Of Books! this is HUGEE”. I knew when reading i was gonna have to get comfortable because the book was so huge i knew it was gonna be crazy ride.

Overall: If you haven’t read the series, i repeat once more TO READ THEM! amazing story telling of angels. Angel fire isn’t as good as Angel Burn but still awesome in it’s own right. I can’t wait to read my ARC of Angel Fever. I want more Alex and have all my unanswered questions being answered. I give this book a 4/5 stars.

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.
