Book Review: Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

Title: Angel Fire
Author: L.A. Weatherly
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Publication Date: January 24, 2012
Summary from Amazon;
If you haven't read Angel Burn, please don't continue reading because of possible spoilers.
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. 
 The angel menace has exploded, and Alex and Willow are on the lam. Willow's prophetic dreams point them to Mexico City, where they connect with a group of angel killers led by Kara, an AK from Alex's past. But the team is suspicious of Willow, even after Alex takes over training them for an attack on THE TWELVE, a council of all-powerful angels.

This book came out on my birthday, which I was totally siked about. So, of course I bought it as a birthday present to myself because 1) I needed an excuse and that seemed like a good one, 2) ... There's not really any more reasons, really. haha.
When I first saw the cover and style of Angel Fire, I was completely and truly awed, no joke. Not only is the front cover gorgeous but the spine, it's absolutely amazing!
 There was so much tension in this book, due to a gorgeous, at least in my mind, half-angel by the name of Seb. Seb has been looking for another of his kind all his life long, and when Willow and him meet, well there's definitely some sparks, as to say. So yes, there is a love triangle, which we all most of the time love, but mostly pretend to hate. L.A. Weatherly pulls off the triangle just perfect though; setting off emotions, adding dramatic effect to the plot, and making the book more interesting than it would've been without the tension it caused. Weatherly's writing is great, switching from 1st POV to 3rd throughout the book, giving you a somewhat omniscience overlook at the plot and characters.

L.A. Weatherly's Angel Fire surpassed Angel Burn in so many levels. What with it's tension-filled pages, romance(s), and detailing; Angel Fire is a true page-turner that has you anticipating the conclusion to this series.
