Jasmine’s sixteenth birthday was the worst ever…
All in one day, her dad died, she met a demon, and her mother rejected her existence forever. After all, the demon who killed her dad was there to take her, and all because of her stupid powers—the ability to conjure blue flames.
Two years later, she’s happy. But happy never lasts…
After moving to Idaho to live with her grandparents, Jasmine has a new life. Almost nobody knows about her powers, and she’s just a normal teenager with normal problems. Then comes her eighteenth birthday—and the earthquake that changes her world forever.
An army of demons rise from Hell. And Jasmine is right in the middle of the battle…
When demons claw their way to Earth, Jasmine is surrounded by hundreds of fire-eyed beasts. Worse, she is captured by a big-shot demon named Bael. He’s a tricky foe with a chip on his shoulder—and the desire to make Jasmine use her powers for evil.
Amon is a fallen angel with an attitude—and everything to lose.
Successfully escaping the underworld undetected, Amon is on a quest to regain God’s grace when he rescues Jasmine from the clutches of a particularly nasty demon he knows all too well. The attraction between him and the not-entirely-human captive is instantaneous. Heavenly sparks fly, but ideas of romance will have to wait. First they have to stop the demon race from wiping out the mortal realm. Humanity’s fate rests in their hands.
Can two troubled angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon’s souls be bound together—in hell?
What’s not to love?
Jasmine’s birthday’s do not seem to go right at all these days, she lost her dad for her 16th and pretty much the gates of hell opened on her 18th. Yeah, I would not be thrilled either! But, Jasmine is unlike any other human she has some angelic powers and she gets to meet Fallen Angels to help fight the end of the human race.
As the main character, Jasmine is mouthy, badass and so brave considering what she has dealt with and she still has to face. One cannot help but like her and I loved her no questions asked. I was actually debating her choices in boyfriends (Bub and Beau: Does she have a B fetish???) but it seems that there is hope for her yet!
It did help that the new hottie in the book is Amon the Fallen Angel joined by other fallen as they meet and save Jasmine, Cole and Gemma who also have powers. I mean you are putting together a tiny group of angels and humans with the world falling apart and I can tell you blue sparks were flying everywhere!
Emotions are all over the place, but if you ask me, it is not unexpected.
I loved the book, there was no way I was not! We are talking angels, demons, bratty teenagers, oh and did I mention a gorgeous smouldering angel? If that is a not a recipe that goes straight to my heart, I really do not know what does.
Oh yeah there is a kiss too!!!!!!!!!!!
As you can imagine the mission of saving the world and stopping Lucifer is not going good, after all the book ends well with not so much good news and I cannot wait until book 2 is out to see what is going on and how we are going to fix the fact that heaven lost the war with hell.
Like I said, I loved it! It was nicely written, great pace, some good action sequences, high tension and betrayal and some really really bad guys, I mean demons!! This is looking to be a fantastic series that I am so looking forward to and the wait will be as always excruciating but I will have to bear it!
if you haven’t figured it out yet, I super highly recommend it and hope you love it as much as did!
