Angel I realise it was probably a mistake to read another angel book so soon after finishing Angelfall, but it was amongst the gushing reviews and comments on the aforementioned that I read about these two books sharing a similar theme This theme being that, rather than having pretty, sparkly, heaven sent angels, the authors used thetraditional, violent creatures who have come to earth in

but it was amongst the gushing reviews and comments on the aforementioned that I read about these two books sharing a similar theme This theme being that, rather than having pretty, sparkly, heaven sent angels, the authors used thetraditional, violent creatures who have come to earth in order to take over However, this is where the similarities between the two novels end.Angel Burn has a much heavier focus on romance In fact, the majority of the book is taken up by the development of the relationship between the male and female protagonists who are, of course, drawn to each other from the very beginning I cannot help but be annoyed when the heroine pauses in life threatening situtations to ogle this novel s piece of man candy Is this normal behaviour Surely myself and Penryn cannot be the only ones to prefer survival Naturally, they are already eternally, unconditionally in love by the novel s half way marker I also would guess that the equivalent of about sixty pages in total is given to Willow and Alex s kissing sessions Way too much of this rather large book was about the romance And what was the plot, exactly Like Article 5, like The Other Life, the bad guys are not actually that important They are merely the tool needed to get the two lovebirds on the run together and allow for the road trip romancing to take place Unlike Angelfall, the angel mythology is so underdeveloped This could quite easily have been a book about vampires, werewolves, aliens take your pick You d only have to change a few words and phrases here and there.Perhaps it would not have been so bad if the romance hadn t been so damn corny as well I m not totally immune to the charms of a sexy guy in a leather jacket and the call of a touching romance, but this pulled some scenes that I m pretty sure only Disney can get away with You know what I mean, one of them is lying on the ground and no, please no, you can t be dead I love you and then their eyes flicker open Oh, please.If you re a hardcore PNR fan or haven t already read way too much annoying paranormal novels then this could be for you If you ve read Angelfall recently, though, I recommend waiting a good while before reading this because, in my opinion, it pales in comparison Simply put, I think this is the best young adult paranormal book I ve read though admittedly my knowledge in the genre is rather limited But whereas YA books usually bore me with the endless descriptions of everyday high school life, this one took a different approach, muchto my liking that of a road trip.Willow has always been psychic and has the ability to see glimpses of the future One day while reading a girl s thoughts she sees a real angel Surprisingly though, the angel seems t Simply put, I think this is the best young adult paranormal book I ve read though admittedly my knowledge in the genre is rather limited But whereas YA books usually bore me with the endless descriptions of everyday high school life, this one took a different approach, muchto my liking that of a road trip.Willow has always been psychic and has the ability to see glimpses of the future One day while reading a girl s thoughts she sees a real angel Surprisingly though, the angel seems to be hurting her friend rather than helping her and Willow tries in vain to stop Heather from joining the newfound Church of the Angels When Willow herself goes to the Church for a last attempt to stop Heather she seesangels feeding off humans, leaving them drained and weak Unbeknownst to Willow, the angels have been notified of her existence and consider her a threat For this reason, they send someone to kill her someone who s in fact an Angel Killer When Alex, who s the assassin, meets Willow, he realizes that something is very wrong with this mission and decides to watch her a while before actually killing her So he follows her to the Church of the Angels only to see the Angels attacking her And since my enemy s enemy is my friend as the old adage goes, he decides to save Willow until he knows why the Angels want her dead Thus, they both get into his car and their road trip begins.For one, there is no way that this book is going to bore you The action and suspense is non stop till the very end, while the on the road element added much to my enjoyment These two constantly meet new people, visit new places and in between they get closer to each other Thus when they finally admit to their attraction, I could actually believe it, since they were not strangers at that point I liked the writing, simple and to the point but with some beautiful descriptions of the desert and later the mountains that made me feel as if I was actually there I liked the characters too both calm, composed Willow and lonely, decisive Alex Although they were only 17 and 18 years old respectively, they both acted maturely like adults, which was very understandable and realistic considering their childhoods.If like me you read only a couple of YA books

the deal ends Review edited 6 3 11 to include this freebie There s something a brew in the heavens, because there has been a streak of great books centered around angels lately After disappointments like Hush, Hush, Fallen, and various other novels, it s exciting to have books like Unearthly and Mercy and now Angel Burn, which is the first in a trilogy previously published in the U.K under a slightly different title.What s unusual about this book is that it takes the whole notion of angels as kindly guardians and turns it upside down Angels want something very badly from humans in this story, and their secret is a pretty devastating one Willow is a clairvoyant who sees flashes of the future for anyone she touches, and is horrified by a disturbing vision she sees while doing a reading for a classmate In the meantime, alternate chapters follow a sexy and mysterious young assassin named Alex, who first sees Willow as a nemesis, but who gradually helps her to uncover incredible secrets about her past and about her future.Willow and Alex are both fantastic characters on their own, making mature decisions and doing their best in an impossible situation, but they become stronger and evenappealing together Throughout most of the book, they are on the run and alone in the car, so it s a testament to the writer that the reader remains engrossed in the mounting tension of the story as well as the slow burn of a relationship between the unlikely pair Willow and Alex are deeply connected and funny and honest, and it s refreshing to read about a boy and a girl who are actually nice to each other, even when they have every compelling reason not to be Angel Burn is a terrific page turner with unforgettable characters, and readers will be on the edge of their seats waiting its sequels This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher. So, my thoughts during and after reading Angel Burn Ahem Weatherly is not a bad writer Truly, she isn t But I felt like this book lacked epicness and research It was a small world trying to seem big A small war trying to seem all ending I felt like she sat down and used up any standing information she had about angel lore and, somehow, managed to compose an entire novel What she should ve done was spend a littletime in the library or the internet, don t be scared to give us mor So, my thoughts during and after reading Angel Burn Ahem Weatherly is not a bad writer Truly, she isn t But I felt like this book lacked epicness and research It was a small world trying to seem big A small war trying to seem all ending I felt like she sat down and used up any standing information she had about angel lore and, somehow, managed to compose an entire novel What she should ve done was spend a littletime in the library or the internet, don t be scared to give usdepth This was cheesy as fck Project Angel Angel Killers Omigod, okay so this one, I was likewatch AK stand for Angel Killers, haha That would be the biggest, most hilarious fail, hah ohAngel Burn Chakra Points Willow knowing hot things about cars The fcking C.I.A Willow and Alex really liked to talk about how much they love each other Like, over and over again Too many p.o.v.s There s no element of surprise when we know everything that s coming around the corner Bad move.There were good things, too But I don t remember them Favourite QuoteIt worth it you know, said Alex, smiling into my eyes What is I said His thumb moved slowly over my cheek All of this Having you It s worth anything I have found another awesome angel book Last year it seemed I was having the worst run with angel themed books They were all a little too similar and I was thinking maybe they weren t for me But Angel is nothing like any other angel book I have read before Not only does it have a unique concept but has great blend Favourite QuoteIt worth it you know, said Alex, smiling into my eyes What is I said His thumb moved slowly over my cheek All of this Having you It s worth anything I have found another awesome angel book Last year it seemed I was having the worst run with angel themed books They were all a little too similar and I was thinking maybe they weren t for me But Angel is nothing like any other angel book I have read before Not only does it have a unique concept but has great blend of heart pumping action, surprising twists and turns and a captivating romance.First off the mythology is really something that makes this book standout from the rest Angels feed off humans causing them death, insanity and disease and it is called angel burn And most people can t see it as they are too blinded by the angel s beauty The mythology though is easy to understand and comes together well as the story is explained and is quite interesting.Angel alternates from both Willow s and Alex s points of views and smoothly changes from one to the other Also every now and then you get a point of view from two of the secondary characters that play an important part in the story The pace is mostly quick and engaging There are couple of slow points in the book but it is 500 pages long and overall held my interest the whole way through.The characterization was good Willow is a little different from the average girl with her psychic abilities and love of cars She is instantly likeable Alex is the dark, sexy, mysterious type and completely crush worthy Their romance builds slowly at first but then turns into that epic type of love Very mushy but in a good way.Overall, this was fantastic start to this trilogy and I can t wait forBookers Warning Some of you lovely ladies at SCB may find the romance in this book too mushy for your taste The half angel and her assassin Willow and Alex are two remarkable and unique characters that I absolutely loved reading about Short book but worth the read.

Simply terrible The switching view points was the worst especially since one of them was annoying as heck I probably would have finished it if it was just written in Alex s perspective There needs to bebooks from a guys perspective All these girls POV s are getting on my nerves They are all the same we re sooo unique Then they turn around and do everything every other YA Main Character does xxWorst of all, 30 pages in and there wasn t even a hint at a plot I d imagine Terrible Simply terrible The switching view points was the worst especially since one of them was annoying as heck I

or at least hear of one by this pointAnyways, I wouldn t recommend it at all It was boring and it was horrible to get through the 30 pages I did.Never Again Willow una ragazzina particolare, vive con la madre Miranda, affetta da una malattia mentale, e con la zia, che lei considera un triste specchio della sua vita futura Dopo la scuola, Willow lavora come meccanico e fa la chiaroveggente Ripara le macchine perfettamente, cos come infallibile nel prevedere il futuro Perch lei il futuro lo vede davvero, con il solo tocco della mano E vede anche il passato Cos quando Beth, la perfetta cheerleader biondo miele, le chiede un consulto,Willow, involontariamente, sbircia nel suo passato e scopre che Beth ha avuto un incontro con gli angeli Questo l inizio di una storia che si sviluppa in un trionfo di amori e battaglie per la salvezza del mondo Gli angeli in questo libro sono talmente perfidi che hanno addirittura creato un corpo speciale di sterminatori Uno dei loro obiettivi proprio Willow, prima ragazza mezza umana mezza angelo E il destino vuole che il suo cacciatore sia il bellissimo Alex, un giovane guerriero assoldato dalla CIA che lavora attivamente per l esiguo corpo degli Angel Killer Il mondo degli angeli sta ndo, e proprio gli angeli, con la loro infida bellezza, stregano gli umani per portare a termine la loro missione stanno concertando un invasione di massa sulla terra per succhiare l energia ai terrestri e sopravvivere My bar for ranking new angel books is admittedly low I mean, look at the comps and see the lack of competition Until Unearthly, I was beginning to think it may be impossible to write a decent angel book Out of all paranormal creatures, angels have received the worse treatment in YA books BY FAR I won t go into the examples we all know what they are.With Angel Burn, I was pleasantly surprised The wearisome elements plaguing other angel books TSTL heroines, creepy obsessive love interests, My bar for ranking new angel books is admittedly low I mean, look at the comps and see the lack of competition Until Unearthly, I was beginning to think it may be impossible to write a decent angel book Out of all paranormal creatures, angels have received the worse treatment in YA books BY FAR I won t go into the examples we all know what they are.With Angel Burn, I was pleasantly surprised The wearisome elements plaguing other angel books TSTL heroines, creepy obsessive love interests, shoddy mythology were largely absent Both Willow and Alex are unique and likeable While they are immediately attracted to each other, the actual romance builds for much of the book, and the insta love is kept to a happy minimum Yes, it was the hunter falling in love with his prey we ve seen done before, but the chemistry between Willow and Alex and the way the author let the attraction simmer for chapter after chapter had me hooked.Although Angel Burn has a slow start, the pacing picks up immediately once Willow and Alex begin their road trip escape The story does descend into gooey teenage love about 2 3 of the way in, but at least the author let Willow and Alex spend time together and get to know each other first.While I m not sure why these creatures are called angels they re certainly not angelic in the traditional sense and don t seem to come from Heaven they were the perfect villains sufficiently creepy and evil The mythology is developed enough to make sense, and it s definitely unique.I m happy to say that with its original mythology, likeable main characters, and simmering romance, Angel Burn far surpasses many of its angel book competitors
