In Book Two of L. A. Weatherly’s wildly romantic, action-packed trilogy, the angels are back with a vengeance . . . and they don’t have heaven in mind.

In the wake of the Second Wave, the angel menace has exploded, and Alex and Willow are on the lam. Willow’s prophetic dream points them to Mexico City, where they connect with a fledgling group of angel killers led by the exotically beautiful Kara, an Angel Killer from Alex’s past. But the team remains suspicious of Willow, even after the more-experienced Alex takes over as leader, training them hard for a rush attack on the Seraphic Council, or “The Twelve.” This elite group of all-powerful angels is also under the scrutiny of Willow’s angel-father, Raziel, who has his own sinister plan to defeat them.

What Willow hasn’t told Alex is that there was also a mysterious boy in her dream, one she felt overpoweringly attracted to. When brooding, gorgeous Seb shows up in the flesh, he turns out to be another—possibly the world’s only other—half angel. He’s been searching for Willow all his life, and when Alex enlists this rival to help keep Willow safe, he can’t predict what chemistry will pass between them . . . or how far Willow might go to keep Alex safe. Will their love endure or spell doomsday for the human race?

Angel Fire kept me biting my nails throughout the whole thing!

One: the damn evil angels again!

Two: SEB!

To say Seb put some tension in this book would be an understatement. That boy knows what he wants and he wasn’t going to back down. I totally fell in love with him. He was beyond charming and good looking….but I’m Team Alex, now and forever. Sorry, Seb!!

Now, this isn’t to say Alex is perfect in this book. In fact, he goes a little overboard at some points and I was really worried he wouldn’t be able to fix things. Mind you, he’s under unbelievable pressure. Not only does he have to train the newfound group of AKs and figure out a way to take down a bunch of angels, he now has to worry about Seb and Seb’s feelings for Willow. So I forgave all of his wrong turns. I love you, Alex!!

I loved that Willow is less scared in this book. She’s learning to fight back as best as she can. And I was really proud of the way she handled the Alex/Seb situation. She was confused, but not because she wasn’t sure of who she truly loved. She mainly just needed to understand her feelings and their place for each boy. It certainly wasn’t what we normally see in love triangles and I really appreciated it.

Another interesting part of this book is the setting: Mexico. I don’t read many books set in my native country so I was completely excited about it! L.A. Weatherly brings it to life with her descriptive imagery. I felt like I was there.

Some new characters are introduced and while I liked some of them, I hated how they all treated Willow and Seb. I especially disliked Kara. Even if she just wanted what was best for the group and Alex, I found her way to abrasive for me to like.

L.A. Weatherly delivered a very worthy follow-up to Angel Burn in Angel Fire. It had tons of action and even more emotional rollercoasters! I am now eagerly anticipating the last installment in this series, Angel Fever.
