Angel Burn Review

Angel Burn
L.A. Weatherly
Release Date: May 2011

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 that 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.

I was actually pretty impressed with this book. It had an interesting concept, one where the Angels aren't exactly the good guys. It was told from several POV's which, if your not expecting it, can thrown you off at first. But I grew to actually enjoy the switch-ups. I really liked the main characters. It was nice to see a female lead character who wasn't whiny, weak, and annoying. The friction between Willow and Alex was entertaining and believable, but once they got past that, it got a bit too sappy and cliche for my tastes. Some of the lovey-dovey parts dragged on a bit too long as well. But you can't have it all right? Aside from that, it was still pretty fast-paced and action-filled. I enjoyed Weatherly's writing style. It's very simplistic, she doesn't use fancy adjectives or over-detail every little thing. Which is a breath of fresh air sometimes. It was very easy and engaging to read. This is definitely one you Paranormal YA fans should read.

I am rating "Angel Burn"

'Till Next Time!
