Angel Fire (Angel #2)
Add it on Goodreads!
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?
First, I am just curious if anybody else noticed that the dress on this cover is the same dress on the Mara Dyer covers? I just happened to notice one day and found it funny. Anyway….this books picks up right were the first one left off. I took longer routes to places or I actually drove the speed limit so I could listen to more of this book. The narrator did a great job, just like the first time, with the exception of Alex’s voice, which she changed for some strange reason (perhaps she forgot how she originally did Alex?).
For a lot of this sotry, my heart strings were being yanked on. I was so emotionally involved that my heart ached for Alex and Willow. They are still my favorite characters, and a new character, Seb, was introduced in this book, who I really enjoyed as well. Seb has a good heart and is a great strong character.
Just like the first book, this one has wonderful descriptions. I have never been to Mexico City, but the visual I got from the book is probably not far off from the real thing. The imagery is very vivid and the author really makes a clear picture with her words.
The story itself was great and full of action, especially everything that happened toward the end. It kept me enthralled and I can’t wait for the third book, Angel Fever. There was a semi-heavy emphasis on the plan to lose virginity, which I’m not really sure what my feelings are for this. It almost seemed like it had to be done, like a requirement (if that makes any sense). Other than the couple of minor issues, I really thought this was a great book and would definitely recommend the Angel series to readers.
Wonderfully descriptive, full of action, tugs the heart strings, good narration, but had a voice change.
