In a world where angels are beyond redemption, Alex thinks he's found one that might deserve mercy. Alex is a ruthless assassin - of angels. Forget everything you've heard about them before. Angels are not benign celestial creatures, but fierce stalkers whose irresistible force allows them to feed off humans, draining them of their vitality until there is barely anything left. As far as Alex is concerned, the only good angel is a dead angel...until he meets Willow. She may look like a normal teenager but Willow is no ordinary girl. Half-angel, half-human, Willow may hold the key to defeating the evil angels. But as the hunter and the hunted embark on an epic and dangerous journey and Willow learns the dark and terrifying secrets of her past, Alex finds himself drawn to Willow...with devastating consequences. Eoin Colfer reinvented the fairy, Stephenie Meyer reinvented the vampire, L.A. Weatherly reinvents the angel!

First Thoughts: I switched Across the Universe with this book because I felt that it was going to be good. So I switched the book I been waiting to get with this one, a book that i never heard of.

Cover: The cover is stunning! I really love it, it have a light glow in it showing the beauty of Willow which is amazing.

Setting: I like the setting, normal high school and students who mostly have no idea what is happening outside from the school or inside. A good school setting sometimes and a good outside setting.

Characters: I really like Alex, he's awesome. I also like that Willow is not perfect and she is a beauty person inside and out. The only thing I don't like about the two is that they fall in love so fast!
Alex is like "oh she is so beautiful." and "I love her." So is Willow! I don't feel the connection between them. But they are cute together, so I getting to let it slip a bit. I also hate how they are like "I'm going to die!" and "No Willow!! She going to die." I really hate when characters are like that, that is way close to the end they annoyed me. Bu they are good, solid characters though.

Plot: I think the plot is amazing, turning the belief of angels as good to angels as beautiful monsters sucking people's energy who don't know they are getting weak, the people are given "angel burn" and they thinks that the angels are helping them, It is different and original. I have a good feeling that this trilogy will be good. What if we were always wrong about angels and L.A Weatherly brought it to us with this book.

Recommends: Fluffy romance lovers.
