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. She has no idea where she gets this power from - But Alex does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex 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.

“A Quirky, Fast Paced Thriller, With a Twist!”

I have to admit I understand the commotion over this book. It was different to what I expected but still amazing. I loved how it’s part of the fallen angel but not at the same time because they not fallen, just very very evil. From the moment I engaged in the book I loved it. It was a quirky, fast paced thriller with a twist, and I have never read anything quite like it. This book was so good it took me ages to write the review. It even got to the point where I was considering doing a Vide Review, but luckily my creativeness returned.

My favourite character was probably Jonah. I absolutely loved him. He was torn between the two worlds of good and bad but not in a cheesy way (I’m cheesy I <3 HARRY POTTER) He has a nice personality and I found myself instantly liking him and feeling sorry for him being at the command of the enemy. I mean he is literally caught up in the middle of everything but as people would say it’s for the greater good – Yet again CHEEEESY J

Anyway after a lot of scary psychic stuff she meets the boy. (Of course there’s a boy – DUH!) Alex, as always he is Edward Cullen perfect. Quirky, full of loss, sarcastic and finds it very hard to show emotion within in the first few chapters. Nevertheless the two eventually fall in loved and I find their love and bit overwhelming, because instead of spacing it out in-between the love Weatherly has packed it into the last five chapters.

That fact the angels were evil were my favourite twist because they are all white, glow and flutterby wings. But Willow – Half Angel – No offence but we all saw it coming. Again with her dad, I got halfway through the book and I already knew who he was. Intuition? No – Inference (we’ve been studying it in English so I just had to use the word somewhere – make me look clever – which I am by the way!)

The plot is a good one. The writing is little but descriptive. I just doesn’t go on, for once. It just tells you what you need and moves on. I think that it is a factor of a light novel (even it is 600 pages LOL).

The book is full of fiery passion, action, flare, love, darkness, light, killing, half angels, angel killers and angels and too be honest I absolutely loved this book. Yes I will read this again – SO BUY IT! GRRR – I SAID BUY IT!!!! GRRR
