SUMMARY
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 TAKE:  5/5 STARS
Highlights:
Be prepared to see these heavenly creatures in a different light. These breed of angels are unlike any other angels you’ve ever read before. They’re almost cannibalistic in their hunger for human life. The book is not gory, per se. But their appetites are probably comparable. They have the characteristics of a horde of aliens, parasitic and gluttonous in their hunger. They invade, they destroy, they move on. We’ve been serve with a cacophony of stories about these beings but as far as I’m concerned, Angel Burn is highly original.  

Willow is an amiable character. She is without the angst of a teenager who’d known her disparity with the rest of the kids her age.  Willow grew up knowing that she’s different. She’s a psychic with a talent in psychometry. She can tell anything about a person with one touch; she can tell what your future is if you give her your hand. Her beauty is ethereal, concealed in second hand clothes and grease from fixing cars. Her relationship with her vegetative mother is heartrending but it exists, nonetheless.

Alex was hard to figure out. I love the air of mystery that constantly surrounds him and the futile fight he had with himself as he tries to figure out who or what to follow: his heart or his belief that angels – of any kind should be terminated.

Lowlights:

Virtually none, in my honest opinion.

Final Thoughts:

I enjoyed every single page of this book. The heart pounding sequences were relentless and the romance was sweet and real. I’ve finally got my copy of Angel Fire (Angel Burn #2) and I’m chomping at the bits to get started.
