“Angel Burn” (Angel Trilogy, #1) by L.A. Weatherly
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Willow knows she’s different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people’s dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces, and that he’s one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil. In the first book in an action-packed, romantic trilogy, L..A. Weatherly sends readers on a thrill-ride of a road trip - and depicts the human race at the brink of a future as catastrophic as it is deceptively beautiful.
They’re out for your soul . . . and they don’t have heaven in mind.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm not a huge fan of the angel genre, mainly because they all seem to go the same route. "Angel Burn" is an exception. In the beginning I had to push myself to keep going, mainly because the constantly switching view points were making my head hurt. But once the story starts to get going - its easy to find yourself refusing to let go of the book. There are some characters you'll hate, well a lot to be honest, but its easy to get lost in the stories of Willow and Alex. Sure, in the beginning it may be easy to hate Alex, too, but that eventually changes once you get to know him.
The blossoming relationship between Willow and Alex is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats. It's a slow burn, but the payoff is lovely.
Just when you think you know what to expect next, you'll find yourself being surprised.
I'd suggest giving this book a read when it releases in May, you won't be disappointed.
