After Reading: Angel Fire
Only Willow has the power to defeat the malevolent Church of Angels, and they will stop at nothing to destroy her. Willow isn’t alone, though. She has Alex by her side – a trained Angel Killer and her one true love. But nothing can change the fact that Willow’s a half-angel, and when Alex joins forces with a group of AKs, she’s treated with mistrust and suspicion. She’s never felt more alone…until she meets Seb. He’s been searching for Willow his whole life – because Seb is a half-angel too.
I reviewed Angel Burn, the first book in the trilogy, here. Okay, right off the bat, this book was an excellent sequel, in my opinion. I've had my share of let-downs for the second book, but this one wasn't one of those instances, and kept up the pace and tone set in book one. I'll admit, I was a little wary of reading it for another reason, though--it's set in el DF (Mexico City). I've spent a lot of time in that city, and while it's not one of my favorite places exactly (it's insanely huge, complicated, and don't even get me started on the traffic!) there are elements that are very near and dear to my heart. So I was a little worried Weatherly wasn't going to do the city justice. Quite the contrary, actually! She did a great job portraying the place, which pleased me (I only had a few quibbles, like it is ALWAYS raining in DF, almost at least once a day!). Anyhow, other than that, Seb's character was spot-on, and as always, Alex was awesome, sizzling, and so perfect for Willow. I can't wait for the next one!
