Overview

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 "Edens" provided by the angels who have all but enslaved humanity. As the angelic stranglehold on humanity tightens, Willow and Alex are recruiting and training new Angel Killers while struggling to hold ground on the celestial battlefield. Willow continues to struggle with 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?

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kristin Fletcher-Spear
The concluding novel of the trilogy that began with Angel Burn (Candlewick, 2011/Voya June 2011) will be a welcome read to fans of the series. Beginning directly at the end of Angel Fire (Candlewick, 2012/Voya February 2012), the world has been struck by catastrophic earthquakes, which Willow's angel father, Raziel, blames on her. Willow, working with her love, Alex, and the other Angel Killers, is determined to finish off the angels once and for all. As they train for the final battle, the rest of the humans have been corralled into Edens, where they can live in relative normalcy while the angels feed upon them. One must read the previous books to understand the characters and their backstories. While the story line is a standard supernatural romance, there are interesting moments that give it more depth. Much of the novel takes place over a year and a half while the characters are training. Weatherly does well to keep the reader's attention through dialogue and character conflicts, but the time lapses are only told by a character in dialogue, which would be jarring if a reader skips the line. The conclusion to the trilogy is a climactic battle that is completely eclipsed by Willow's devastating fear of losing Alex, both by death in battle and his leaving her at the end of it. While the novel never rises to "cream of the crop" of supernatural romances, libraries with the previous two titles should seriously consider it. Reviewer: Kristin Fletcher-Spear

It is bad enough when evil angels take over the world. But it is worse when humans are gathered into “Eden cities” and fed upon by the angels, resulting in mental or physical illness. Teenagers Willow and Seb, the only half-angels in existence, have joined a group of angel killers (AKs) committed to destroying the angels and taking back the world for humans. After the AKs destroyed the Angel Council in Mexico City, the Earth’s major cities were destroyed. Now the remaining AKs, led by Willow’s boyfriend, Alex, have retreated to the CIA compound in Nevada and recruited a new team of AKs, hoping to eventually kill enough angels that the rest will die with them. Willow’s father, Raziel, is a devious angel and was presumed dead with the Council. Raziel has plans of his own. In one burst, he severs the angels’ connections to each other. Now the AKs will have to kill the angels one at a time, which could take several lifetimes. But Alex, following a plan his late AK father never executed, opens a gate into the angel realm and crosses over. His actions cause an explosion that convinces Willow he is dead. With the love of her life gone, she has nothing to lose when she returns to her hometown of Pawtucket in a desperate final attempt to find the only remaining gate. If her plan works, all the angels will be drawn back into their realm. But Raziel still stands in her way. Can Willow’s untested power prevail? Weatherly’s finale in the “Angel Trilogy” wraps up the series with heightened romance, tense action, and thrilling suspense right up to the very end. Perfect for fans of Laini Taylor and Cassandra Clare. Reviewer: Magi Evans; Ages 14 up.

Gr 10 Up—In this action-packed finale to the trilogy, half-angel Willow; her boyfriend, Alex; and the rest of the exhausted Angel Killers have picked their way through earthquake-ravaged Mexico to find a secret underground base in the Nevada desert. They determine that because of the linked consciousnesses of the angels, they only need to kill about 100 more before all of the angels succumb to death. If they fail, every person on Earth will fall to the angels' appetite for human auras. But while Willow and her group are preparing for battle, her father, Raziel, is making plans of his own-plans that he believes will ensure the angels' survival. If he discovers that Willow is still alive, he will stop at nothing to kill her before she can fulfill her prophesied destiny. Alex, in desperation, makes a choice that will jeopardize both his life and his relationship with Willow. Willow is a strong, likable heroine with realistic flaws. Her conflicted emotions when Seb (the boy who loves her but whom she does not love) begins a relationship with another girl ring true to life. Some confusing plot points may make this a challenge for struggling readers, but there's enough action to convince them to keep going. And Willow's romance with Alex will have teenage girls swooning. Despite a bit of deus ex machina and a few convenient occurrences, the saga wraps up in a neat, satisfying manner.—Heather M. Campbell, formerly at Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO

The Angel Burn trilogy ends with plenty of action and heaping portions of romance, complete with jealousy, rivalries and lovers' quarrels. In a nice twist on the usual angel meme, the angels in this series are the bad guys, feeding on humans' auras and killing them. The humans respond by worshipping the angels even more, except for Willow and Alex's band of Angel Killers. In middle volume Angel Fire (2012), the group succeeded in killing much of the angels' leadership, but devastating worldwide earthquakes resulted, and the angels have pretty much taken over anyway. Half-angel Willow and boyfriend Alex find a secure underground CIA base where they train and plot, only to learn that they are so severely outnumbered that victory appears impossible. Meanwhile, half-angel Seb still loves Willow, who still loves Alex. Willow's trek across the country and the solo adventure of another major character stand out as high points in this entry. Weatherly's action scenes move briskly, and she draws out the impossible-to-win-but-can-they-do-it-anyway scenario. For romance fans, she provides appropriately spaced hot kissing scenes and hints at behind-the-curtains sex. Then there's the lonely Seb, who can't stop loving the unavailable Willow. The main characters are, of course, supermodel-attractive and bound together by raging love forever, except when they're having a spat. Despite (or perhaps because of) the standard-issue romance tropes, fans of the series will find all they want here. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)

This series surprised me in a big way...what a unique twist to make angels seem evil! I had trouble putting this book down and now it will be a struggle to find another book to grab my interest. This has been truly memorable from the nearly catastrophic plot with the love triangle and the supernatural twists...very inspirational! There were a few minor spelling or grammar flaws but it didn't disrupt the ability to enjoy the story. I highly recommend this for both young adults and even middle aged readers.

Angel Fever is definitely a book of this century. Combined with Alex's passion to save Willow amd destroy angels the story takes a unique twist at the middle of the second book dut to introduction oaf Seb's character into the already strained relationship between the hero and the heroine. As a fan I couldn't help but be sure that the character of Seb is a classic .

4.5 Stars 'Angel Fever' is the gripping conclusion to the young adult fantasy/paranormal Angel Trilogy. It picks up right where the previous book left off and continues to follow leading lady Willow Fields along with Alex and Seb as they try to figure out what to do next in their war against the angels. As more devastation rocks the world, they flee to a remote CIA bunker in the middle of the desert, where Alex, Willow, and the rest of the group begin to recruit and train new Angel Killers. Meanwhile, Raziel continues to have devious plans in the works - for both the humans and the angels. Alex discovers that there might be a way to finally defeat the angels once and for all, and heads back to his home base to attempt the feat himself. Willow, Seb, and the rest of the AKs keep training - preparing themselves for the war that is coming. Who will be left standing at the end? Will Willow and the AKs find a way to defeat the angels for good? This was one of the most compelling trilogies I've ever read and the final book didn't fail any of my expectations. There's a ton going on in the book - Raziel and his evil plans, training new AKs in the desert, Alex and Willow's relationship, Willow's feelings for Seb, and the fact that a war is being waged by angels - is just the tip of the iceberg. The characters continued to be realistic and flawed - after reading the entire trilogy I really feel like I know them all by now. I liked getting to know the three main characters - Willow, Alex, and Seb - better throughout each book along with seeing how their relationships with each other changed. The plot was ridiculously awesome - filled with action, twists, a bit of mystery, romance - basically a bit of everything. I have to admit that with this trilogy, something really hit a nerve with me because I cried in this book - more than once. As I did with the second book. Let's just say that there were some points in the books that made me so emotional that I literally couldn't continue reading for awhile because I was crying so hard and I was extremely upset. I normally don't react viscerally to books and when I do, I know that I've discovered a great author. Needless to say, these books are definitely on that list and I really haven't reacted to any characters that intensely before except for maybe a couple of other times. The writing was incredible - the plot was really fast paced and I literally couldn't stop reading. There was so much going on all the time - whether it was action with the AKs or relationship stuff with Willow and Alex, it was all exciting and I was hooked right from the start. I couldn't wait to find out what would finally happen in the war and how things would finish between Willow, Alex, and Seb. I don't normally like love triangles and this didn't change with this trilogy - it might have even made me hate them more. It definitely gave the book more depth and emotional action, but I have to admit that it made me mad sometimes. Overall, this was an explosive conclusion to the trilogy and I don't think it could have been done any better. I highly recommend this book - this entire trilogy - to fans of fantasy and paranormal romance as well as YA fiction. You need to read this series if you haven't already!! Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Angel Fever is the conclusion to this brilliant series by L.A. Weatherly. It has all come down to this, we've waited,we've watched the characters grow and mature and now the finally battle to take possession of the earth is near. Willow, Alex and the Angel killers must pull out all the string and weave a few new ones to have even a small chance to defeat the powerful angels that have enslaved and are feeding off most of the world's population. Internal turmoil might under mind the Angel Killers, can they pull themselves together in time to save the world? This is an absolutely fabulous book! I loved it. I found Angel Fever packed full of nail biting suspense, action, unexpected heros, heart breaking loses and love to last a life time. L.A.
