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...

This is the sequel to Angel (or Angel Burn in the US). I absolutely loved Angel. I thought it was original and unique and exciting and just… really, really good. Angel Fire however in comparison (to me at least) fell flat. Yes there were aspects that were good but I spent more time complaining about it than loving it so I’m quite disappointed. read more

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.. .

I really enjoyed this book. It’s definitely a very different take on the Angel genre. I’m so used to the angels in stories being the guy. And the human being the girl. Well this one is the other way round and we got to see the story from both sides because it’s told from both Jake and Willow’s point of view. I found this quite refreshing for this style of book. read more
