Angel Fever by L.A. Weatherly - ESSENTIAL

Weatherly, L.A. Angel Fever, 489 pgs.  Candlewick Press, 2013.  $17.99 

Content: Language: PG-13 (64 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  

In the third and final book of the Angel Burn trilogy, Alex and Willow have gathered a team of Angel Killers in an attempt to kill the remaining angels on earth.  The angels have been sucking the life out of humanity and Alex figures if the Angel Killers can use the angels’ connections to each other that they can kill around 100 angels and it will take away their power.  But just as the Angel Killers are getting ready to attack, Willow’s angel father breaks the angel bond and brings thousands more angels to earth.  Outnumbered and discouraged, Alex takes drastic measures that might mean the end of Alex and Willow’s relationship.  

This is a great ending to an action packed trilogy.  The main characters have great chemistry and the story never slows down.  The solution to the angel problem makes since and fits with the rest of the trilogy.  This was a fun series and clean enough for young adults.  Some readers might have a problem with angels being the bad guys, but it made for an interesting adversary.
