Okay, so the holidays kind of messed up my reading time but it was nice getting back in touch with the “real” world for a bit. I spent time with family I haven’t been able to celebrate with in years. Living so far away, we’d only get one or the other’s families and siblings normally couldn’t make it all. Having everyone in one place, at one time was wonderful.
However, with Christmas done and nothing standing in my way except New Year’s Eve, (which let’s be honest, I’ll spend it curled up at home binge watching The Duke) I can go back to burying my nose in the pages of my current read and not feel guilty. So without further ado, let’s introduce this one:
Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly
In the wake of the Second Wave, the angel menace has exploded, and Alex and Willow are on the lam. Willow’s prophetic dream points them to Mexico City, where they connect with a fledgling group of angel killers led by the exotically beautiful Kara, an Angel Killer from Alex’s past. But the team remains suspicious of Willow, even after the more-experienced Alex takes over as leader, training them hard for a rush attack on the Seraphic Council, or “The Twelve.” This elite group of all-powerful angels is also under the scrutiny of Willow’s angel-father, Raziel, who has his own sinister plan to defeat them.
What Willow hasn’t told Alex is that there was also a mysterious boy in her dream, one she felt overpoweringly attracted to. When brooding, gorgeous Seb shows up in the flesh, he turns out to be another – possibly the world’s only other – half angel. He’s been searching for Willow all his life, and 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?
At 638 pages, it’s a hefty book! The second in the series, I’m curious to find out where Ms. Weatherly takes us (besides Mexico). I was intrigued with Angel Burn but I didn’t fall in love with Willow. Hopefully this addition to the storyline will change that! At any rate, I get to spend more time with Alex so I’m not complaining too much.
Happy Reading, my Loves!!
P.S. As I’m typing this, I realize I haven’t shared my thoughts on Angel Burn! Oops!! I’ll have to remedy that soon.
