L.A. Weatherly's novel has a strange and unusual plot. The premise is great and the execution very interesting. If this first book is any indication it will be a really interesting trilogy.

What if Angels were real, what if they were coming to earth in greater numbers, what if they could manifest and show themselves to humans? No, what if they needed to feed, and they do so on human energy, leaving behind a wake of death and disease, and the whole time the humans believe it is the best thing in their lives? The Church of Angels is the fastest growing religion in North America; the followers are devout Zealots, who believe the Angels are only here to help us. There is a small but dedicated group of AKs - Angel Killers, who hunt them down and kill them. The only way to kill an Angel is to destroy its halo while it is in angelic form.

The main part of the story focuses around two characters. Willow is a young woman who has always known she is different from other girls, but not the reason why. She can sometimes see the future and help people make better decisions. And Alex is a young man who was never really allowed to be a boy, who has been hunting Angels since before he could drive. The two have been drawn together, at first with a great antagonism to each other, but also being a bit taken with each other. Circumstances have brought them together, and their friendship and relationship begins to grow.

This book is geared mostly for young women, but there is enough action, and guns and cars to keep a young man interested and reading. The romance and time at the cabin in the mountains is a little long, but other than that it is a great novel. I look forward to the next two books; it should prove to be a very interesting series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angel Nov. 28 2010
By Caitlin - Published on Amazon.com
As much as I like to complain about all the Angel books being written recently, I sure do keep on reading them.

Putting that aside, I enjoyed this one a lot. Angels are evil and are out to feed on humanity. Awesome.

So, the story starts with Willow who can see people's future. And when the Angels find out she can do this, one comes after and sees that she is the key to their destruction. Then every Angel in world is out to find and kill Willow. Not to mention their horde of human worshipers.

Oh, by the way, when the Angels feed off of humans, they just think they're having the most wonderful experience of their lives. They've been blessed by an Angel. So, when I say horde of human worshipers, I mean HORDE!

Willow and an Angel hunter named Alex end up on an American cross country road trip looking for somewhere safe and trying to figure out what Willow is and why the Angels think she can destroy them.

What I really liked about this book is that it didn't have to be Angels. In fact the Angels are basically aliens that resemble our myths of Angels. They don't actually fulfill the myths. They are not connected to God in anyway. At least, not that we know of by the end of this book.

What I LOVED about the book was Willow and Alex. Alex is seventeen years old but everyone always thinks he's older because he's lived such a hard life. watching his emotional journey alongside the physical one he has to take with Willow is wonderful. From wanting to hate her, to realizing that he admired her, to be so scared of loving her, each step made perfect sense and felt natural.

Willow didn't do anything stupid. And this is saying a lot in young adult fiction. She didn't make a phone call thus alerting people to their presence. She didn't spend all doubting Alex's affection for her. She was smart and resourceful, a little sad about having to leave her whole life behind, but ultimately eager to help beat back the threat of the Angels. The doubts that Willow did have were completely warranted as one of the first conversations she has with Alex is about he hates a certain part of her. The same part that makes her different from everyone and forces her to leave her entire life behind. I love intelligent female leads and Willow was definitely one.

I loved these two character apart and I loved them together. And the book is mostly the two of them, together, in a car. But it doesn't drag or seem repetitive. Ms. Weatherly keeps it fresh and exciting. Car chases, shootings, narrow escapes, mystery, romance, and cool powers. This book had everything.

There was a lot of point of view shifting in this book. I am not really a fan of this. However, it wasn't too bad in this one. And it felt, if not necessary then...well, it would've been a completely different book without it. Different characters were told in different perspectives too. It took some getting used to. I think I would've enjoyed it more had it all been in third person. Or, it wouldn't have needed an adjustment-grace period-thingy.

The ending was fantastic. It had a conclusion, while still leaving everything up in the air and keeping the threat real. I also loved Alex at the end. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but he just has some good realizations and takes good actions.

Much better than I expected it to be. Simple novel, the characters seemed to grip me till the very last pages and I found the plot to be interesting to read. On the whole this book wasn't great to the point were I can start gushing about it but it was good. And simple.

Angel by L. A. Weatherly

If you have not read Angel yet, I recommend that you do - but only if you can handle cliché’s. This book is full of cliché’s that make your eyebrows shoot up like “really?”
This book features a girl protagonist who discovers that she is a half angel who could destroy all the angels already in the world, plus the groups (waves) coming in the future. So all the angel followers (everyone who has angel burn [what happens after an angel feeds off you. Causes mental illnesses] feel as if the angels are the most amazing thing in the world and join a church that is run by angels – even though it is slowly killing them)start hunting down Willow. That’s all I’m going to say.
This book has 4 different POV’s, 2 of which are main characters, 2 of which we see very little of. L. A. Weatherly’s writing is quite amazing. I am one who doesn't read a lot of male POV novels, so I thought she really did a great job capturing the male aspect of things.
If you haven’t checked it out, I really recommend that you go to that. Then come back and discuss your thoughts on it.

Can I just say, I LOVE these covers. I think they're absolutely gorgeous.
