Review: Angel Fire

Title: Angel Fire
Series: Angel Trilogy # 2
Genre: Young Adult- Fantasy/Paranormal
Author: L.A. Weatherly
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Release Date: January 27, 2012
Book: ARC sent by publisher

"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. 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?"

I really loved this book! There are so many changes, new characters, and new places that made me so happy and giddy while reading this book. I especially loved the emotions in the book as well as the progress of the characters. Since the first book, Alex and Willow are on the run. Things might be all as what they thought.

Without any spoilers, I want to express why I loved this book so much. First off, there are some new characters that really made the book much more edgy. Both characters create uncertainty and unstable environments. Many things from the past come up to haunt and destroy Alex and Willow, while others things come up just to complicate it more. I did enjoy what these new characters brought. As the reader, as the new characters bring more story to the story, they also open up doors to that can be bad.

The plot line of this book delve deeper into the angels. I loved that Willow is able to learn more about herself that what she thought. Though many fear rose up in Willow, she still kept herself strong and did what need to be done. All the characters in this book, including minor ones, played bigger parts. I like seeing how the minor characters decisions played a big part in the end.

All in all, Angel Fire is a great sequel. One that is fast past and very exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed this book far more than I enjoyed the first. Ms. Weatherly  gave her readers so much more to be excited about. Ms. Weatherly answered questions, raised more, but left her readers yearning for the third book! I can't wait to read it!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
