Angel Burn

Angel Burn
by L.A. Weatherly
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: Candlewick
Release Date: May 2011
(this is the info for the newest edition though the old edition cover)

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 that 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 listeners 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.

Book Review:
Personally I liked it. I had never heard of it until a couple of days ago. The whole idea of the book was really interesting. And the execution was fairly well done. I loved the characters. Though with Alex I was thinking ooh stalker. There wasn't really that much to explain their relationship either. Plus the book is totally surrounded on their relationship, what I have to say is the weakest part of the book. Remember this is my personal opinion so if you don't like what I'm saying then you don't have to read it. Anyways when I read books I don't really like it when they get all mushy and stuff. Well this one definitely had it's share of mushy moments. I don't mind it when a book is mushy if the rest of it isn't totally revolving around the relationship of the two main characters. Also if the two main characters are going to have a relationship I want to feel like they really love each other. In this book that was kinda lacking. Though overall I have to say I kinda enjoyed it. With all it's faults it was fun to read. Though quite forgettable.
