Review: Angel Burn


 Overall Impression:

Source: NetGalley

Short synopsis (Goodreads): 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.

My Review: What first attracted me to this book was its premise. Killer Angels? Haven’t heard of those before! That being said, getting to know the characters was interesting. I expected Willow to be ditsy, but she wasn’t. I expected Alex to be shallow, but he wasn’t either. The supporting cast didn’t have as much depth to them, but Willow and Alex were able to carry the story along just fine.

I actually liked the fact that Willow was first person narrative whilst Alex and others were more third person. The attraction between the two main characters was obvious, and got a little too syrupy sweet towards the end for my liking, but it was still adorable. I was expecting more action, and there was some, but I think/hope the second one in this series has more. Definitely willing to read the next one to see what happens.
