Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Willow knows she's different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people's dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself does. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces and that he's one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil. <p>In the first audiobook in an action-packed romantic trilogy, L. A. Weatherly sends listeners on a thrill ride of a road trip--and depicts the human race at the brink of a future as catastrophic as it is deceptively beautiful.<p>

Horn Book Review

Here are new supernatural villains to add to the mix: angels. It's not as contradictory as it might seem, as Weatherly has created a logical, fully realized world in which these celestial beings are up to no good. While oblivious humans bask in angels' radiance and beauty, even worship them at a massive Church of Angels, the angels are in fact destroying them, feeding on humans' auras. The result is "angel burn": cancer, schizophrenia, MS, etc. To Alex, their threat is personal; he blames angels for the deaths of his father, mother, and brother. As an angel assassin, he responds to text messages (presumably) from the CIA, telling him which angel to kill next. While Alex is stalking angels, Willow is "Queen Weird" at her small-town high school. Refreshingly tough and sarcastic, she spends her time fixing cars and grudgingly giving psychic readings to classmates. Willow doesn't know that she's half-angel, nor that Alex has received a text message with instructions to kill her. Alex doesn't, of course, and what follows is a novel packed with action and romance, culminating in a conclusion full of gratifying revelations (including the identity of Willow's father). But there's plenty still to be addressed in the remainder of this morality-bending, dynamic (planned) trilogy. rachel l. smith (c) Copyright 2011.
