Not all angels are good!

Angel Burn   The first of three (every YEA book is a trilogy right?) L.A. Weatherly takes angels to a new level- that of the destroyers of the Earth and mankind.

Pretty but quirky Willow knows that she is different- likes antique clothing and is psychic but she has no idea that she is part angel until she reads the palm of a classmate and sees something really bad.  Alex has grown up as an AK (angel killer) and sees himself as the terminator of all things angel until he gets a message from the CIA to go after Willow.  He can't kill her until she feeds off a human and gives them "angel burn" which oddly enough seems like someone in a religious fervor or schizophrenia.  Willow's mom has been this way for as long as anyone can remember and Willow has grown up taking care of her.  The angels are trying to take over the world and Alex has to stop them but Willow is only part angel and is a threat to their evil plan.  The action moves the story quickly and you will get to like the characters as they fall for each other.   No real adult themes so it is OK for younger teens and lovers of Twilight and The Hunger Games. The only part of the story that I felt was a bit overdone was the romantic intanglement in the end.  I am looking forward to part II which is due out this Fall.
