Summary (Goodreads)

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 verdict


To tell the truth, reading Angelfall and World After by Susan Ee has been devastating (I know, I know this is 'Angel Fever' not 'Angelfall'...but I'm getting there in a bit). So, Angelfall and its sequel World After (best sequel ever!) were so good, so deliciously awesome, so perfect (huff) that they have spoiled me forever! I can't stop myself from comparing every book I read now to the Penryn... series. Oh God, why? And trying to keep my battered heart in one piece, here I am, waiting, waiting, waiting...for the next book in the series...sigh... *opens a jar of nutella* 

Anyway, back to Angel Fever. This is a sequel I've been waiting for for almost two years I think. Angel (Angel Burn) was pretty good. Angelfire, I felt, dragged a little at some places, though it was decent enough for me to wait for the last book in the trilogy. As for Angel Fever, I can't say its better than the first book in the series, but its better than the second one for sure. The story seemed to be moving too slow around the middle of the book, while the climax seemed too fast paced to make much sense. 

I liked the end (yes, I love happy endings), but the climax could have been better. Not what I had expected at all. What Alex, Seb, Jonah, and everyone else did during the final attack, I did get. But what the hell was Willow doing? She goes to the Willow tree and she simply knows what she has to do to "save the world" and then she does something and (somehow) puts a timer on it to go off in one minute. Blackhole like gateways open up and the angels all vanish into them. Really, the Willow part of the climax was almost comical. It definitely could have been better. Other than that, it was a great read.
