Summary/ product description: “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 "refugee" camps provided by the angels who have all but enslaved humanity. As this angelic stranglehold tightens, Willow and Alex are recruiting and training new Angel Killers while struggling to hold ground on the celestial battlefield. But Willow continues to have 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?”

My Review:  Why did I wait over a year to read this? I put it off because I was afraid of how it would end. I loved the first two books despite their lengths. These books take a while to read, but I love the characters and the story. I just feel sad that it’s over.

It’s kind of sad that this series wasn’t more popular. It’s the craziest mix of sci-fi and paranormal ever. These angels are nothing like the angels you know other than having halos and wings. They feed on people. They’re inter-dimensional beings and their world’s ether is dying. Willow and Seb are the only half-angels alive and this gives them special abilities. They’re helping to train Angel Killers in aura work in the Nevada compound. Willow has Alex as her boyfriend, but Seb still pines after her. He tries to date a girl named Meghan.

Just when they think that they have a chance at defeating the angels, something happens to destroy their plans and they start feeling hopeless. They still train and kill angels because every dead angel could mean the life of a human is saved. Alex discovered another way to destroy the angels and sets out to find it. Something happens that breaks Willows heart.

Angel Fever was a very emotionally stunning read. I almost found myself crying in some parts. I just love the relationship between Willow and Alex. Seb is also a great guy, but he wasn’t there from the start. Alex is practically my dream guy and I felt like I was there, right along side Willow, feeling her pain and love for Alex.

There’s just some much action, adventure and romance packed into this book. It’s thick (but less thick than Angel Fire) with content. It didn’t drag on because it was boring, but because I just wanted to savor the story and not miss anything. I hate when I feel like I have to skim, but I didn’t do that here.

This is definitely in my top five angel series. It’s the most unique one. It reads like an alien-apocalypse story. I have a hard time finding the right comparison, but if you like Angelfall by Susan Ee or the series on SyFy called Dominion, then you should check out this series.

Cover Art Review: Consistent with previous covers. Love the fiery hair image.
