Angels are all around us: beautiful, awe-inspiring, irresistible.
Ordinary mortals yearn to catch a glimpse of one of these stunning beings and thousands flock to The Church of Angels to feel their healing touch.
But what if their potent magnetism isn’t what it seems?
Willow knows she’s different from other girls. And not just because she loves tinkering around with cars.
Willow has a gift. She can look into people’s futures, know their dreams, their hopes and their regrets, just by touching them. But she has no idea where she gets this power from.
Until she meets Alex…
Alex is one of the few who know the truth about angels. He knows Willow’s secret and is on a mission to stop her.
The dark forces within Willow make her dangerous – and irresistible.
In spite of himself, Alex finds he is falling in love with his sworn enemy.
Angel Burn is everything you could ever want in a book – great characters, heart-thrilling action, and undeniable romance. I loved everything that made up this book. The plot line was suspenseful, and even though some parts were a bit predictable, everything was unique because of the characters that did the actions. Everything pertained to Willow and Alex’s relationship, feelings, and beliefs. I loved the uniqueness of the characters and that the plot felt different just because of who it revolved around. The premise of the book itself was incredibly creative, and I basically am screaming inside for the sequel – the only reason this review won’t go on forever is because I have three other mini-reviews to write! I highly recommend this book – it’s worth every second spent reading it (which may not me a lot, actually, because I read it in less than a day – yeah, it’s that good) and I’m seriously considering buying it because I’ve read it and loved it that much. Also, the cover art is amazing, the UK cover is too, (just FYI, for some weird reason the U.S. cover isn’t working for the post) and I basically thing I’m in love (with the book, not Alex … although, come to think of it, if he ever, you know, gets sick of Willow, he’s welcome to have a fling with me and then go back to her. Or, ummm, he could just stay).
