Review: 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?
Willow and Alex survived the second wave.  But with Willow face being plastered on every Church of Angels website she’s easy to spot.  So it time for a change.  With her new short red hair, she and Alex are headed for Mexico in hopes to build a new Angel Killers team to strike again.  But when Willow has a strange dream that practically pulls her to Mexico City not only because of a strange boy that she feels drawn to although she’s never met but because something big is going to happen that she’ll need to be there for things begin to take a strange turn.  Once they get there things between her and Alex aren’t right and on top of that her Angel seems to have gained a mind of her own.  Willow is afraid that her angel is just as bad as the ones she is trying to fight.  Angel Fire is the exciting sequel to L.A. Weatherly’s Angel Burn.

I Rate This Book A:
I was excited to find that there was a sequel already out after I read the first one and it defiantly delivered.   One of the main things I liked about this one that was different from the first is that there are a handful of new character’s introduced into this one.  This really changes the dynamics between Willow and Alex because in the first book it was always just the two of them.

Two of the characters that I really liked were Seb and Sam.  *Spoiler*  I like Seb because he, like Willow is half angel but he’s known his whole life so therefore he really helps her come into her own.  Sam is a true Texan through and through and frankly if he was a real person he’d probably bug me but there something that is very FNL Tim Riggins about him that I love.

You also get a better sense of the angels dynamics.  There’s a ruling that you didn’t get in the first book because it was just a selective first wave group that was sent the earth as a test run.  But now that it was successful more important people are coming and it really messes with Raziel’s plans.
L.A. Weatherly is the author of several books including Child X and the Angel Trilogy which you will have to stay tuned for the final installment, which I believe may be due to be out sometime in January 2013.
