Did you ever read a series that just begs to be made into a movie?  Such are the books, Angel Burn, Angel Fever, and this, L.A. Weatherly’s latest title, Angel Fever.  Weatherly’s expertise at creating a vivid mental image in the mind of the reader makes a compelling argument for creating the actual visual image.  She practically has the scenes designed for the director.

This one tells the final story of Willow and the AK’s  fight against the vampire-like beings, the angels.  After the destruction of Mexico City, Willow and Alex now try to find the rest of the surviving angels.   Willow’s father, Raziel, one of the angels, is now in charge and has set up camps for the humans who survived the devastating earthquakes.  These “camps” are really farms to insure the surviving angels with constant food sources.

Willow learns that she must open a gateway between the two worlds to send the angels back to their home, and then close it again so they can never return to earth.  In order to do that she must destroy her father.  The author said that she had intended to write about passion, but it ”turned out to be … about forgiveness.”

I thoroughly enjoyed the series, and I expect that it may become popular with teen readers.  Given the mature themes in the books, I think it is best suited for the high school or college/age reader. Weatherley has a good amount of sexual innuendo in the story.  Although the sex is not graphic, some may not want younger readers exposed to it.
