Only Willow has the power to defeat the malevolent Church of Angels – and they will stop at nothing to destroy her. However, Willow is not alone. She is with Alex, a trained Angel Killer...and her one true love. Together, they must train a new generation of Angel Killers. But as a half-angel, Willow can’t help feeling like an outcast, even with Alex by her side. So when a handsome stranger with a tortured past arrives at the AK camp, Willow finds herself inextricably drawn to him... Completely irresistible, Angel Fire is a stunning story of loyalty, conflict and love.

    I really debated on whether to give this a three- or four-star rating, but I think I'll go out on a limb and stick with the four star one, ha. Why? Explanation as follows:

    Firstly and most importantly, Willow actually shows a backbone in this one. Not as much as I would have liked, but there were parts in which I actually wanted to wave the book around and shout, "Look! Look closer, there's a personality hiding in there!"

    I really liked Willow at the beginning of the first book, but thought she got pretty blah and compliant once the romance with Alex kicked in. There's actual TENSION between Willow and Alex in this one, guys. Granted, many of the forces are external and not internal, but it was a refreshing change of pace from the staring-deeply-into-each-other's-eyes moments.

    A new half-angel shows up and (unsurprisingly) has a thing for Willow. Alex gets jealous and paranoid, and tells Willow to ditch him or Alex is leaving. Except (wait for it!) Willow tells Alex he doesn't pick her friends for her, and he's out of line. Not only this, but later, Alex actually REALIZES WILLOW WAS RIGHT.

    I reread this section a few times and yes, I'd really like to copy and paste this passage into my local library's copies of Eclipse.

    Now, there are some definite flaws to this book, most noticeably the length. There is a LOT in this book that drags on and should have been cut. This also connects into my biggest problem with this book, which was the alternating POVs. Weatherly alternates between 1st person (Willow) and various 3rd person POVs (including Raziel, Alex, and whoever else she feels like throwing in). It's jarring, annoying, and adds little to the plot. It also pads the book like crazy, which may very well be why she did it. If this book was whittled down to something reasonable, I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others. As it is, it's a hefty commitment to make, time-wise.

    Though the writing style left something to be desired, I was relatively pleased with Willow's character (maybe that says something about the plethora of weak female protagonists in YA literature, who knows?). Willow and Alex's relationship was still pretty sickeningly sweet at times, but the action got pretty tense (once it actually got started!) and I'm looking forward to the conclusion in 2012.more
    This series has become one of my favorite of all time. I do not think there are enough good things I could say about this series and this latest book! I could go on for hours. The writing it TOP NOTCH! There is not one thing I could complain about. The storyline is amazing, something I could easily see being made into a blockbuster movie. The characters are delightful, real, engaging, inspiring, heartfelt, dramatic, and just plain....perfect. Really! Alex and Willow's relationship is treated with just the right mix of drama and realism/authenticity needed. I really enjoyed that L.A. Weatherly strayed away from the beaten path of keeping the character's YA 'innocent' and I appreciated the hot/steamy/ but appropriate in a YA novel scences between Alex and Willow. Out of all the YA books and couples I have read... they are by far my favorite. L.A. Weatherly throws a wrench in things, stirs it up a bit, and STILL they are my favorite. The continuation of the storyline just left me breathless. The development of the plot is awesome! I was literally on the edge of my seat with anticipation and despite the length (THANK YOU! I wish more books were this long), the pace was perfect. All the new characters were interesting (ugh, even Seb!) and the returning characters made me so happy (Raziel). I really think the strength of this book goes to the writing! The character development, storyline, and excellent writing/pace/development/description/concept is what really makes the Angel Burn series by far one of the best out there! If you're tired of the same ol' YA novel and you want something REALLY interesting, read these. You won't be sorry! I thank the person who recommended Angel Burn to me over and over because I would be so sorry if I never knew the wonder that is Angel Burn and now Angel Fire. L.A., you've outdone yourself ma'am! Thank you!more
    I really loved this book! There are so many changes, new characters, and new places that made me so happy and giddy while reading this book. I especially loved the emotions in the book as well as the progress of the characters. Since the first book, Alex and Willow are on the run. Things might be all as what they thought.Without any spoilers, I want to express why I loved this book so much. First off, there are some new characters that really made the book much more edgy. Both characters create uncertainty and unstable environments. Many things from the past come up to haunt and destroy Alex and Willow, while others things come up just to complicate it more. I did enjoy what these new characters brought. As the reader, as the new characters bring more story to the story, they also open up doors to that can be bad.The plot line of this book delve deeper into the angels. I loved that Willow is able to learn more about herself that what she thought. Though many fear rose up in Willow, she still kept herself strong and did what need to be done. All the characters in this book, including minor ones, played bigger parts. I like seeing how the minor characters decisions played a big part in the end.All in all, Angel Fire is a great sequel. One that is fast past and very exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed this book far more than I enjoyed the first. Ms. Weatherly gave her readers so much more to be excited about. Ms. Weatherly answered questions, raised more, but left her readers yearning for the third book! I can't wait to read it!more
