Book Description

Angel Fire: The First Book of Fallen Angels

My name is Darcy Anderson, and I am cursed with a dark power:
Whenever my life is in danger, something inside me summons
elemental fire to protect me. I cannot control this.

One night, I was attacked in my home. The fire ... it raged out of control.
I survived the inferno, but my house burned to the ground
- with my parents inside.

I was at a loss to explain to the courts what happened,
and they sent me to prison for ten years for manslaughter.

Now I'm out on parole, and all I want is to return to my
home town and rebuild my life;
but the man who attacked me is back
to finish the job he started.

I can sense the power in me growing.
If I can't control it, it will control me
and destroy everything - and everyone - I love.

************SPOILER ALERTS************

I went back to the Amazon description of this book and I could not find a reference that it was for young adult readers. Trust me, it is for teenagers, very young teenagers at that. I could not make it through this book. I tried but after repeated instances of Darcy putting herself in confrontational situations, and the same way she reacts each time, the story started to feel contrived. Why did she go back to her hometown where everyone but three or four characters hated her with a killing passion. Especially since it resulted in Darcy killing her aunt, uncle, soon to be boyfriend and numerous other people. But then Darcy seemed to have the personality and judgement of a teenager.

I was never sure how everyone in her home town found out she started the fire that killed her parents. I skimmed the book a lot so I could very well have missed it.

It seems to be the fad for authors to stretch their novels out over several volumes. This would be fine if the author kept the story interesting and the pace of the plot moving, but this story moves at glacial speed. I guess the authors have to come up with some way to stretch the story out to cover multi-volumes so they keep rehashing points already made. Since I couldn't wait for the wrap up of this first volume, I finally jumped ahead to the last dozen so pages. I shouldn't have bothered. Which is a shame since I am reading another of the author's book, "Forbidden: The Stars" and it is a bit more interesting. It suffers from logic flaws also, but my interest is enough to read the second volume.

If you want to read a good book on the "Angel Fire" theme, try Stephen King's "Firestarter" or watch the 1984 movie starring a very young Drew Barrymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read May 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Avenging angel or murderer? This is the choice you need to make in ANGEL FIRE. The book opens with Darcy Anderson being released from prison after serving a ten-year sentence for manslaughter. This immediately captured my interest and is an excellent opening that kept me turning the pages. Why was she in prison? Who did she kill? The rest of the story focuses on Darcy as she tries to go home and blend in with the good townsfolk of Middleton. Unfortunately for her, people remember her as the girl who killed her parents in a horrific house fire. As if that wasn't bad enough, the Sheriff and her ex-husband Barry will not let the past rest and relentlessly confront her at every turn.

As the story unfolds, Mr. Daniels skillfully reveals more details about Darcy and what really happened on the night her parents were killed. Is she a "fire bug" as some call her or does she have an other worldly power to bring forth intense fire at will? The secondary characters are nicely fleshed out and I especially liked her Uncle Edward, a stern no-nonsense kind of guy. Darcy's inner turmoil as she comes to grips with her power is portrayed quite well by the author. Throw in a love interest with a strange power of his own and it's hard to put the book down.

I don't want to put any spoilers in the review, but suffice it to say, this is indeed an intriguing read. Whether you love her or hate her for the things she does, this book will keep you thinking long after you've finished reading. Does the end justify the means?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it January 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book hooked me in from the start. I appreciate the much more adult nature of this book compared to similar books out there. It gets tiring reading about teens and superficial young adult characters if you know what I mean. Darcy, the main character, actually has real struggles and tragedy in her life, which makes her much more real than the usual fare. The only complaint I have is that for most of the book, it was unclear what fallen angels have to do with it. I kept waiting to find out that she was adopted, or Nephilim in some way. Maybe she has her power because she's a fallen angel trapped in a human body? It was eventually answered, but now I'm intensely curious about how the next books in the series will unfold. I recommend this to anyone with a taste for urban fantasy with a more realistic, fleshed out spin. It doesn't disappoint.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow and Predictable June 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel like this was written for a much younger reader because of the plot. I was not ever really enthralled by it and I actually forgot I was reading it when I picked up a different story. I need to care about characters and Darcy did not make me like her.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read! February 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I confess to having initially downloaded a sample of Angel Fire essentially because I liked the cover graphic. I had been particularly busy and was not really in the mood to try an author I hadn't read before and was part way through a book by one of my favourite authors. I then clicked into the first chapter and met Darcy Anderson.

Immediately I took to her and her unusual "gift' and within 24 hours was back at the Kindle store to find out how she managed to deal with the 'ghosts of her past'.

I found Angel Fire to have creative elements akin to those of Stephen King, but with the added dimension of a set of characters that I immediately liked.

I fear giving too much away by saying more, but highly recommend 'Angel Fire - the First Book of Fallen Angels' but not only to the fans of the supernatural. The story is also about new beginnings, and what we need to make them work.

A great read.

Daniel Barker,
Author
