Review: Angel by L.A Weatherly

Angel (Angel, #1)Still spewing rainbows an hour after finishing Angel

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.

The review is really short cuz there wasn’t much to talk about. This book was just way too much sweet sugary love with not enough paranormal flour to make good cookies. It wasn’t that the romance was badly written but there was just too much time spent on it. And there’s only one way for me to react to that:


I really liked Willow and Alex at the start but it was around the middle where I stopped and realised there was nothing to the story other than Willow and Alex. I could literally summarise the whole story in three points.

  1. Willow finds out she half angel and Alex hides her.
  2. They go through the awkward I like you but I don’t stage and then become an official couple.
  3. They try and defeat the angels.
  4. So.. wait there isn;t anything else. Yep, that’s it.

The plot let me down a lot not only in the paranormal area but the action and the fights.The little action that was in the book didn’t really pull me in. They happened too little and when they did, they were short and anticlimatic. There’s nothing good about that. Nothing. The only time it did get exciting was at the end where Willow tries to save the world. That’s as interesting as it got for this book.

It was really hard to get through the melted sugar pool of this book. But if you managed to wade across, leave a comment with your thoughts.

Rating: 2/5 bamboo sticks (only because I slightly enjoyed the first half)
