Review: Angel Fever by L.A. Weatherly

Angel Fever
Angel #3
Hardcover, 496 pages
Published by Candlewick
Release Date: November 26th, 2013

As half-angel Willow strives to save the world from her parasitic otherworldly kin, romance and tension heat up to a climactic finale.

In the devastated remains of the world, millions of people live in "refugee" camps provided by the angels who have all but enslaved humanity. As this angelic stranglehold tightens, Willow and Alex are recruiting and training new Angel Killers while struggling to hold ground on the celestial battlefield. But Willow continues to have feelings for Seb, and her love and resolve are tested as a shattering revelation sends Alex on a separate journey. Now that the final battle versus the angels is about to begin-and the fate of the world hangs in the balance-each of them must face the consequences of their own choices. Will love endure? Will the human race survive?

My Review:
All good things come to an ending and I loathe endings. I’ve put off finishing the Angel series for three years so I could postpone saying goodbye to some of my favorite characters ever. L.A. Weatherly did not disappoint delivering an amazing final installment with Angel Fever.

Angel Fever picks up a while after Angel Fire when the world's biggest cities went down in flames. Now Willow and her boyfriend Alex are training refugees to kill the last bit of Angels. They learned if they kill enough all of them will be wiped out forever. Sadly, things take a turn for the worse and then an even bigger turn for the worse when Alex goes missing.

So mini spoiler alert here because I think this fact is important, Alex isn’t dead and Seb and Willow do not end up together. Just a quick FYI because seriously that put me off a bit when I found out Alex died.

Anyway back to the story. It’s phenomenal and everything you could ask for in a final book. The characters are all so real and because I came to love all the characters so much all their deaths, pains, and worries felt like my own. Which goes to show what a great writer L.A. Weatherly is.

Angel Fever along with the rest of this trilogy has always held a perfect balance of action, suspense, character development, description, and dialogue. I never feel like I’m getting too much description of the world around these characters nor too much inner dialogue. It always felt like the characters were steadily progressing throughout the story to make them into who they were meant to be.

I have always had a deep love for Willow and Alex’s characters from book one. Willow started off as timid and wouldn’t hold a gun but very caring about her mother and friends who loved tinkering with cars. That hasn’t changed much but she’s grown and will now do whatever it takes to protect the ones she loves by taking out the Angels. She doesn’t rely on Alex to do all her fighting for her and is a leader in her own right. I loved that they made her so realistic within this story when things began to change. Alex wasn’t in this story a lot which was unfortunate but made sense for the story. He didn’t really have a lot of time to grow considering what happens to him and how time felt to him but I still loved his character.

Then there’s Seb who came in at book two and I was positive I wasn’t going to like it. How wrong I was and I was happy he got his own happy ending.

Overall amazing ending. I would definitely recommend. This story has evil soul-sucking Angels and dimension jumping and fantastic characters. I couldn’t ask for a better novel or ending to one of my favorite series of all times.
