Angel Fire (Angel #2)

Angel Fire (Angel, #2)
Angel Fire (Angel Series #2)
By L. A. Weatherly
Published January 24th, 2012 by Candlewick Press

4.5 stars - It was pretty amazing! 

In Book Two of L. A. Weatherly’s wildly romantic, action-packed trilogy, the angels are back with a vengeance . . . and they don’t have heaven in mind.

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?

So first of all Ive been wanting to post my review for this book for a week already but I've been very busy lately.  But anyways here it is now!  After reading Angel Burn, (review on my blog), I was really wanting to find out what was going to happen.  Well Angel Fire let me know what happened and I was very pleased with it.  And in case you haven't noticed its like 700 pages!  I enjoyed the length of the story but I'll admit that at some times it did feel a little slow, mainly in the middle.  In the last 200 pages or so the book gets pretty exciting.  So we start out Angel Fire with Alex, Willow, Raziel and a new character, Seb.  The view points switch between the four of them again and I found each one interesting.  

Some might not be fond of the fact that there is a sort of love triangle in this book but there is and I'm sure you can guess who it's between.  Although at times you might wonder if it's going to become a square because someone from Alex's past comes into the story.  I'll let you find out who on your own so I don't spoil it.  Throughout the story Alex has the responsibility of training new AK's because they have to get ready for some pretty powerful angels and with the second wave there is a whole bunch of them.  In the meantime Willow is having a difficult time with the rest of the AK members and figuring out her feelings for Seb while she practices her angel powers with him.  

I really like Angel Fire.  I feel like the characters became closer, Alex and Willow mainly.  And their relationship became more real with flaws.  The action was intense near the end of the book and it has you wondering what's going to happen next.  I like that I was able to really dislike some characters while loving others. Plus this book made me cry which means that I really connected with the characters even more than the first book.  There's a ton I want to say but I don't want to give anything away. So check this out for yourself!  The third book should be coming out sometime in 2013 and I can't wait!  Sorry for not posting sooner but again I've been really busy with homework and school.  Hopefully I'll post more soon!
