Angelfire (Dark Angel #1)
by Hanna Peach
You'll likely find Alyxandria slicing demons with her blades rather than plucking at harp strings. She trains harder than any other warrior to prove she is nothing like her parents who abandoned her to become Rogues.
After a series of confusing visions, Alyx saves Israel, a mysterious mortal who knows too much. She discovers she has been chosen as his Guardian. There's just one problem. She is forbidden to even see him again. Why does he need protecting? And from who?
What she uncovers will change everything... an Elders' dark plan, a keye to unlock Hell, and a prophecy that warns of the greatest war this Earth will ever know. Her problems just multiplied.
The war for Earth is just beginning.
"Fantastic display of imagination" By Celeste Hawkins 1 year ago
Angelfire is a desirable mix of sexual tension and youth innocence that keeps the reader hooked. At every turn, something new and unexpected happens.
Hanna Peach's novel tells a story as old as time - well, as old as the Bible. Taking names from the Bible and creating characters from them can be a difficult thing to do, but Peach does it fantastically. We have a suspicious Michael, an enraged Uriel and a trusting Gabriel. Raphael, alas, is already deceased when this story begins. Our protagonist, Alyxandria, finds herself with powers that most Seraphim warriors could only dream of - however, they're going to get her in a lot of trouble. See, she's a guardian to a human boy, Israel, and she needs to keep him alive so he can fulfill the prophecy that neither knows about yet.
This book had surprising twists and turns around every corner, and has the effect of making the reader want to read more. Every character is interesting and has unique traits that set them apart. I feel like this novel could have amped up the sexual atmosphere a lot more. It could have given readers more clues in the beginning as well as allowing the relationship between Alyx and Israel to appear more natural and human.
This book is worth the read. It's light and well thought out, which means it can fit into anyone's busy schedule!
