Angel Burn

Willow is different: no, it's not because she dresses like a mechanic or has the ability to glimpse into people's futures. It's because she is a half angel. Unfortunately for humanity, angels have been feeding off humans' ether for years, and now they are literally killing off the world. Too bad Willow doesn't know she's half angel, or that she holds the power to send all the angels back to their own world and keep them from killing humanity. With the help of the confident, sexy CIA agent Alex, she might just get the job done...if they can survive. 

Seriously, this one of the most entertaining romances I've read in a long time. Alex's character was perfect: dangerous, brooding, get-out-of-my-way attitude. I loved that. What I didn't love was the fact that angels were feeding off of humans. I know it was supposed to be gross, but it kind of turned me off. Plus, I have an unspoken rule in my head that angels are good and only fallen angels are bad. I mean, if angels are bad, they're demons, right? God's rejects.  But I'm not so picky that I couldn't see past it. The romance was my favorite part of the book. I've seen some people label a few aspects of Alex and Willow's romance as cliche and cheesy, but I kind of liked that. It was a nice change from some of the serious, darker stuff I've been reading. 


  1. Howdy, Summer! I got more blog awards for you, girl!

  2. I loved this book. My only problem was the angels that fed off humans... it just doesnt feel right, but I guess thats the point.. you are supposed to hate them. I agree, the romance part was nice, although agonizing at some points.
    Is that your version of Alex or is this an actor they are casting for it? Either way, he looks so perfect for the role!

    The US has a cooler book cover than UK. We get an odd picture of the girl, and then the second book has the same image of the girl, but the add a guy next to her. She looks slightly evil too.

    1. That's actually an actor that somebody recommended to me that looks like Alex. Drew Roy. He's been in a few movies and tv shows. I thought the feeding thing was weird, too...!


Get fictional - it's fun! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
