Author: L.A. Weatherly
Release Date: May 24, 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 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.
(summary taken from Goodreads)MY THOUGHTS:
Angel Burn is unlike any other angel book I've ever read! Instead of the perfect, good, and pure angels we all know and love, L.A. Weatherly writes about angels that are — more or less — evil. They feed on human souls to survive. It's twisted and wrong and goes against everything I believe in... and I love it!
Everything about this book takes my breath away! From the original premise to the perfectly crafted characters to the amazing romance. Because, despite the insta-love between Willow and Alex, every time they're together gives me tingly feelings. They're just so darn sweet!
I adore Willow. There isn't a moment in the book where I dislike her at all. She's caring and strong at the same time — and she also fixes cars (which is so cool!). And Alex is just pure amazingness! He's hotter than any AK (Angel Killer) has a right to be!
At first, you might find the switching narratives (from Willow's first person to someone else's third person) a little weird, but you'll quickly find that it works for this book! It helps you connect with Willow a whole lot more. Plus, the scenes in Alex's point of view? Oh, God. ♥
Overall, I love Angel Burn! You should definitely read this book, whether you're a fan of angels or not!
