Review: Angelfire by L.A. Weatherly

Angel Fire
By L.A. Weatherly
Published: January 24, 2012 (originally published October, 2011)
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Series: Angel #2

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.” What Willow hasn’t told Alex is that there was also a mysterious boy in her dream, one she feels 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.

I just finished reading Angel Fire and I am literally sad that it had to end. The thought of having to wait for the next (and last) book in this series is going to drive me nuts!

First off, if you'd like, you can read my review of the first book in this series: Angel Burn, by clicking here. You can also read Damaris' review of the book by clicking here.

Angel Fire kicks off exactly where Angel Burn left off and I love that the author, doesn't spend too much time trying to recap the entire first novel. All of the information we learned about our characters is beautifully woven throughout Angel Fire whenever it feels like you might need a refresher. I think the largest difference between the first and second books is the amount of action. Angel Fire was like an edge of your seat, holy-crap-I-can't-turn-the-pages-fast-enough book! Every time you turned around, people were shooting each other, angels were killing people and dudes were decking each other in the face. I LOVED IT!!

The romance in this book was also suspenseful and exciting. Angel Fire introduces the character of Seb - the only other half-angel in the world besides Willow - and a guy who is ridiculously attracted to her. I can't tell you how it plays out between Willow and Seb and Alex, but I can say that it is is not your typical love triangle and definitely worth reading.

Somewhere between the action, the romance and the amazing story-line, L.A. Weatherly also manages to write the most beautiful descriptions of all these places in Mexico City (where most of the novel takes place). You literally feel like you can picture every moment of this book, and I think flawless writing style is something that she has down perfectly.

This book is absolutely incredible and I would definitely recommend it be on your TBR list. BUT LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!!

5 out of 5 stars!


In researching this book, I found that there are multiple covers since the book was originally published in the U.K. Personally, I like the U.K. versions better, but let me know if you agree or not.
