Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

This is another one of those books that is really hard to review because you absolutely loved it. My mind is struggling to create the write phrases to describe this book. It's incredibly hard for me to form complete thoughts. So basically 5 out of 5 stars!

Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly
5 out of 5 stars
Out, out and out!
Summary from 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 does. 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.

I just want to start off by saying this isn't your average angel book. Instead of angels being the good guys here, most of these angels are mind-sucking, aura-taking monsters! They feed off of humans and cause insanity, craziness, and eventually death to the prey, or humans. She wasn't afraid to show how bad the angels were. And that takes skill.

I love the path L.A. Weatherly took with her plot. Every moment was action-packed, with lots of incidents with guns and all. I was never bored with Angel Burn, instead I was yearning for more. Every path she took with her writing led to more and more twists and turns. Throughout the book, I couldn't even predict one event! But let me just say this, once you find out everything, it just clicks! This is one good plot! I absolutely love, love, love it! And I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel!

Then there were the characters. Let's see, there's Willow, who may or may not be an angel. She's a pretty awesome heroine. I really, really like her because she's brave, beautiful and heroic. She is very kind and funny. She is the girl everyone should try to be. Why? Well, because she's the best! And because she has an awesome name!
There's also Alex, who isn't exactly your average bad boy or Prince Charming. But there's one thing he is: crush-worthy! He's really protective, charming and broken. Oh wow, I am in love with Alex! He is amazing! While he does have his flaws, I still love him. He is one crush worthy guy! And did I mention he was an assassin? I didn't? Well, he is one. He just happens to kill angels instead of people...

I loved this ending. It made me speechless, which is a pretty hard thing for a book to do. This ending is so bittersweet and perfect and beautiful. It made me want to tear my hair off, and that's a good thing...
... Well, kind of...

NOte: This book is also called Angel. For some reason, I chose to call it Angel Burn. If you search it up on Goodreads, they show both titles for this book, but it first comes up as Angel.
