Jen's review of "Angel Fire" by L.A Weatherly

Angel Fire (Angel #2) by L.A Weatherly
Publication date: October 1st, 2011
Publisher: Usborne Publishing
Number of pages: 709
Format: Paperback
Buy: Amazon | The book depository
Description: 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?
In the sequel to 'Angel', L.A Weatherly brings back to Alex and Willow's story where we find that after the events of the first book they are on the run. Alex and Willow slowly make their way toward Mexico where they meet up with a bunch of AK (Angel Killers) led by someone from Alex's past. They need someone to lead them that knows what they are doing and that would be Alex. Leading these guys isn't something he originally wished to do, but he was nonetheless convinced it's what is best for everyone.

Not only that, but Willow starts to have dreams of some mystery guy, who turns out to be another (I know, geez how many are there?) half angel, whom has been looking for Willow all his life.
Insert cue for love triangle. *groan*
I know, I know. Trust me.. we all hate or love to hate love triangles.. but what I loved about how it was done in this book is how Willow's love for Alex never wavered. It was still constant, even with her growing attraction toward Seb.
And I suppose you could say this new third party in their relationship made things more exciting with the tension that was between the three of them, but I still preferred when it was just Alex and Willow.

Alex was as awesome as ever. If anything I think I might have fallen in love with him a little more in this book. Seb, was an interesting character, and I liked him to a degree. I just didnt like the amount of interest he had in Willow.

There was quite a bit of action going on in this book, and it swaps POVs, between Willow, Alex, Seb and Raziel, who is Willow's Angel father.

I anticipate waiting for the final book in this trilogy, for when I think all hell will break loose and there probably will be a final confrontation between the angels and the AK's and we'll see who comes out alive. Who will win, who will lose?
