Willow and Alex go to Mexico City to start a new team of Angel Killers, people who hunt and kill the angels who feed off humans’ spirits. These angels are causing illness in humans around the world, so Alex and his half-angel girlfriend Willow, both of whom have had families suffer at the angels hands, have figured out a plan to destroy all angel kind. With the help of the Angel Killer team and another half-angel they make a plan to destroy the Council of Angels, which are the original 12 angels. They believe that by killing these 12 angels they can stop all angels from feeding on humans. After making elaborate plans, Willow gets a premonition that splits the Angel Killer team in half, and causes doubt about the results of their plan.
I loved this book and could not put it down, regardless of the fact that it is more than 600 pages. The chemistry between the two main characters adds a romantic side to the plotting and fighting with the angels. I can hardly wait to see what the end of the trilogy will be like. MS, HS-ESSENTIAL.
