Review: Angel by L. A. Weatherly

Pages: 506 Pages (Paperback)
Publisher: Usborne Publishing Ltd
Released: 30th September 2010 (UK)

Goodreads Summary:
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.

My Review:

I’ve owned Angel for ages now but I just never seemed to get round to reading it sooner… I really wish I had! Angel follows Willow and Alex on the battle to save society from the Angels on earth who are feeding of humans.

The pace of the story if perfect and I adored how the point of view changed from Willow and Alex. Angel changes from first person to third person throughout the story and it totally adds an extra level of awesomeness to it. It gives you a chance to read about small things other characters are doing away from Willow and Alex. It really kept the story fresh.

The relationship between Willow and Alex developed throughout the book at a great pace. I loved the two of them going through the conflicting love/hate emotion stages. As far as guys in books go, Alex is up there with the best! The one thing that I didn’t like about their relationship was that some of the things they said to each other were just a bit cheesy and cliché at times.

The plotline itself is fantastic. It’s full of action and cliff-hanger moments that make you need to continue to the next chapter (even at 2am when I had to awake at 6am the next day).

I am so going to be reading the sequel, Angel Fire.
