Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Six months have passed since Haven, Dante, and Lance learned of their angels-in-training status and saved their high school prom from going to Hell-literally. Now the trio goes to New Orleans where they meet up with other teen angels to take part in the next round of training. Mystery and mayhem abound as shape-shifters from the infernal regions, known collectively as the Krewe, are bent on harvesting the angels' powerful souls, and it is up to the angels and their scarcely tried skills to stop their enemies. Agresti pumps adrenaline into nearly every scene so that with a frantic swim in an alligator-infested swamp, shady goings-on in New Orleans alleys, and run-ins with the Prince of Darkness himself, the drama hardly flags. The characters are just as compelling as the action. Haven is a believable heroine. Her ability to know the state of someone's soul by looking at his or her photo becomes stronger. Still, she is filled with normal teenage insecurities. Handsome but devious Lucian seems repentant and wants Haven's help, but can he be trusted? Then, Haven loves Lance, but is he falling for Sabine? The story is steeped in New Orleans culture and lore, from the teens eating at Antoine's to Lucian's portal being in the infamously haunted LaLaurie Mansion. The pulse-pounding, decisive battle takes place amid the gilded chaos of Mardi Gras. A major cliff-hanger ending will have readers anticipating the third volume.-Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.

Customer Reviews

Agresti does a great job of invoking the character and feel of the city and its culture and weaving it throughout the story.
Rebecca Hutchison
This is a longer book, which is nice, as you get more time to get to know the characters and are able to have more action for the preangels and Krewe.

Format: Hardcover
I did it again. I don't know why I did it again, but I did. I got really bored in the middle of Illuminate, but I had such high hopes for this one that I just had to try it out. I basically just got more of the same.

The book starts out with Haven, Lance and Dante graduating early. They decide that instead of just hanging around til college starts, they're going to go on this volunteer thing to New Orleans. A change of setting is just what they need after everything that happened in Illuminate. Clearly, they don't understand that these guys just shouldn't do internships.

The book takes a really long time to get to something we already know: everyone else on the trip is an angel-in-training. Until that point, they moseying around New Orleans, being good Samaritans and meeting creepy people. I couldn't really see anything different between the demons the trio fought in Illuminate and the new troupe of demons, except for the fact that these guys were shape-shifters. That isn't really a big deal, plot wise. From there, the plot continued to follow suspiciously closely to the first book. Haven realizes something's wrong, she and Lance and Dante investigate, they save the day. Less fire in this one, though.

Another big problem I had with the first book is that little all knowing voice that would pop up and tell Haven exactly what was going on. In this one, Haven has TWO of those sources: the angel trainer, who's gotten with the technology age and gone to a cell phone text, and Lucian, who can't leave this one house because that's where he can appear in ghost form, who's always leaving her letters explaining just what's going down in the underworld.

Haven and Lance also have these cliché middle book relationship problems that seem just disjointed.

Infatuate: A Gilded Wings Novel, Book Two
By: Aimee Agresti
Category: Children's Books

Interesting dilemmas and choices made by the main characters in this book will keep you guessing as you rapidly rip thru the pages in anticpation of what might happen next. Set in a "modern" society makes it a bit different than some books of this genre. What would todays teenagers do if caught in this world? Fun, delightful, and a great book gift.

The second book is just as tantalizing as the first. Great writing and a very compelling plot! Definitely worth the buy.

Format: Hardcover
After having graduated from high school early, the trifecta--angels-in-training Haven Terra, her boyfriend Lance, and her best friend Dante--head to New Orleans for community service. In "The Big Easy," the three friends find themselves not only at odds with a local enclave of vicious, shape-shifting demons called the Krewe but also staring down their second test in the quest to earn their wings. However, they soon discover that their fellow volunteers are also angels-in-training, and together they must quell this menace and overcome their personal demons, individually and collectively. In book two of the Gilded Wings series, Agresti continues her exciting tale of a modern struggle between the forces of good and evil - employing angels and demons, the original supernatural characters. Moreover, without being heavy handed, the author spins a ripping yarn that incorporates motifs and archetypes such as the triumvirate, the plucky heroine, and the Byronic devil with a conscience as well as foreshadows an Isis-esque resurrection tale - all while seamlessly contextualizing the plot in a setting to which the reader can relate.

Infatuate is the newest book in the Gilded Wings series. This book starts fairly slow but once you get into it it's hard to put down. I recommend this book for readers 13+

I haven't read the first book in this series, Illuminate, and I think I could have enjoyed this better if I had.

It's not necessarily easy for an adult to review children's and YA books; there's a whole world of different experiences and expectations. Though I must admit angels and shape-shifting demons have not yet been in my realm of experiences (well, absent True Blood). That said, I liked this book. The characters are interesting as is the plot. I think the author writes well and I admire writers who conceive a storyline so massive that it requires 3 or more books to fulfill. I am going to order book one and probably the third, as well. When I am finished I will pass them on to my avid-reader 12 y/o granddaughter and it will be interesting to get her take on this.
