Alex has watched every person he has ever loved die by the hands of angels. He has nothing left except his job, he is an angel assassin.
Willow is a psychic, who along with her thrift store wardrobe, has a less than stellar reputation at school. When the most popular girl in school comes to her for a reading she discovers that angels are here on earth and they aren’t the good beings that they portray themselves to be.
Alex is assigned to kill Willow, when he goes to scope her out he immediately knows something is not right. Willow is half human, half angel. She doesn’t have an evil aura like the other angels and he can’t bring himself to kill her. He starts to question why he was sent to harm her, could the angels have infiltrated his program and be calling all the shots? Do they want Willow dead just because she is an anomaly or is it something more?
This book is completely NOT what I was expecting. From page one I was hooked on the adrenaline and suspense. Angels are a really popular theme in YA right now, and it’s nice to see an original plot even though the ending left a lot to be desired. I guess we will just have to keep an eye out for Weatherly’s next book.
