An army of angels walk among us. They have kept us safe and ignorant, so far. Earthbound for centuries and ruled by the Elders, they have established hidden cities, a society and The Code: obey your Elders, kill all demons, eliminate Rogue-angels, protect the mortals, remain hidden. Their warriors are the ungifted earthborn angels armed with blades and the 'borrowed magics' of distilled angel-blood tattoos. Alyxandria is a young warrior with a fondness for customized knives and illegal night-races. If only she could overcome the taint of her parents who abandoned her to become Rogues. When Alyx saves Israel, a gifted mortal with a past, she is forbidden to see him again. But she can't help herself, drawn to him through their Guardian-bond, an ancient and long-forgotten bond; if he dies, she dies. An encounter with a handsome Rogue leaves Alyx questioning all she has been taught to believe. Alyx begins to dig into the Elders' secrets. Two thousand years of secrets that begin with the death of the Archangel Raphael. She is not prepared when she uncovers an Elder's dark plan. Somewhere on earth is a key to unlock hell. Somewhere on earth are pieces of an amulet that controls Lucifer and his army. Somehow Israel is the link and now both sides are after him. Who can Alyx trust when Good and Evil is no longer clear? The war for earth begins.Watch the Book Trailer here: youtube.com/watch?v=6xmTBeiIVZ8

Angelfire is not what I thought it would be, it was much much better. Alyx is a pretty awesome MC, she's tough, but she's still got a big heart. Unlike a lot of heroines, Alyx can't be classified as one stereotype, she's very well rounded. I thought the mixture of demons,angels, and mortals was inte...
I didn't like this one. It was not awful, but it was not good either. It played with the demon-angels-mortals triangle with - surprise, surprise! - the Angels not completely the good guys. As I read this twist on the well-used trope at least twice before, it lacks originality for me. Israel and ...
I was very impressed by this book, I was not expecting something so new and unique as Angelfire. A battle for Earth between good and evil Alyx begins a journey to uncover Elder secrets that will blow the lid off everything that she knows.
