Review: Angels, trouble, and love. Those words describe every bit of Infatuate written by Aimee Agresti. Haven, Lance, and Dante have to learn how to survive when demons are after them.
Haven, Lance, and Dante go to New Orleans for an angel "camp", and once they get there they learn not everything is going to be fun and games. There are people out in the world trying to kill them, demons. Haven and the others have to learn how to control their powers, as well as the others. Being in New Orleans is dangerous especially when demons are after you. This isn't the first time Haven has encountered demons, back in Chicago is where it all started. But first Haven and the rest of the angels have to defeat the demons so they can live their live as full angels. Connor, the angel's counselor, helps them prepare for the evil that lies before them. Haven must decide if she can trust Lucian again because he says he's good but he's on the bad side. Yet this isn't the beginning of the story, read to find out all the details on relationships and survival of Haven and her friends.
I really loved this book because when you read it, it seems like you are Haven. The author uses secondary details to describe the primary details and it makes the story even more interesting. I would recommend this book for 4th grade or higher because this story is intense in some parts, such as when they are fighting or other things. If someone has an interest in angels then this book and series is meant for you. When you read this story you will feel just like the characters feel: sad, mad, angry, depressed, excited, and happy. Infatuate shows imagination but isn't too fantasy-like that you feel as in none of this could be real. This story in realistic fiction because the angels and demons are fantasy but the conflicts and feelings can happen any day. Overall Infatuate is amazing because it has exceptional details and it has an amazing setting and plot; and it's just a great story all around.
