I checked this title out from my on-line library after reading the synopsis; and I am so glad that I did. I have had "not so good" experiences with authors who have chosen to delve into the sometimes very murky waters of 'angelic YA story lines.'
It seems as though most authors go the -Good Angel vs. Bad Angel with hot girl in the middle route.-
May I say, "Been there, Done that, TIRED, TIRED, TIRED!"
Angel Burn is the answer to a prayer for intelligent, well-written, captivating, angelic-themed YA.
"There are angels among us...and they're HUNGRY!"
Though the characters of Willow and Alex are meant to be the focus of this work; it is the angels that make this story soar.
The answer is simple.
They are allowed to have ulterior motives, scheme, and plot against those that they are supposedly
here to save. Yum! (That is the thing that makes the GREEK myths so irresistible.)
Formula: Supernatural being + Hidden agenda + Unwitting victims = Great Fiction
Add to that a strong, smart, and beautiful heroine with unrecognized supernatural gifts, her hot would-be assassin turned love interest, CIA operatives, a manhunt (involving Willow, Alex, and all the people-angels trying to kill them), stellar writing, and a killer plot, and you have Angel Burn.
What else is there to say? I adore this book!
This story is caviar in a world of sardines!
Cassandra Campbell is a star in the world of narration and once again she delivers. I really enjoyed the clarity of her read. She was best however, during the emotional scenes. Where there are tears; there must also be Cassandra.
