Review for Falling Angels on Night Owl Reviews

http://www.nightowlreviews.com/v5/Reviews/Hitherandthee-reviews-Falling-Angels-by-Ami-Blackwelder

Falling Angels

AngelFire Chronicles, #2


Falling Angels is the second book in the outstanding Angelfire series by Ami Blackwelder. As with the first book, I was immediately drawn in to the story, as it is extremely engaging and interesting. I did find it somewhat fast paced, but not confusing at all, so it was easy to follow. The characters from the previous novel She Speaks to Angels did come back, and they were deeper and more adult than the first book, which follows the storyline of a deep and dangerous conflict perfectly. I would recommend reading in order to get the full benefit of the story told in order. As a lover of angels, this book was a perfect read for me, as it would be for others as well.

Ali Maney’s world has turned upside down. Now that she is a human turned angel (known as Angelfire), Daemon and Dumah, Kian’s sister, both Dark Angels, want nothing more than Ali’s death. Dumah and Daemon are trying to build an army, and Ali’s death would not only help them, but would destroy Kian and the other Angels as well. And now her friends and family have been drawn into the angel war too! Kian is devastated by his sister’s desertion, and turns all of his attentions to Ali and her training. All she wanted was a normal high school experience. Ali never wanted to be this extraordinary being who held the fate of the world in her hands. Ali is not sure that she can stop the Dark Angels, or that her powers will be enough. Kian knows that they have to be. Can Ali and her powers save them all? Or will she fall, and all be lost?

Score: 4.50 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick
 
 She Speaks to Angels is most assuredly not what I expected. What I expected was a somewhat lighthearted, upbeat, young adult novel about a young girl who can speak to angels. What I found was a beautiful novel that, although it is quite dark in many spots, tells the story of a young girl who is torn between the powers of good and evil and trying to protect her heart and those she cares about. The characters are charming, and I found Ali and her friends easily relatable. I am quite eager to read the next novella in the series, Dumah’s Demons, and the next full novel, Falling Angels, to see where the saga of Ali takes her. She Speaks to Angels is a novel that I believe will appeal to readers of all ages, and rightly so. 
 Ali Maney is a typical high school teenager. Nothing special ever happens to her. As a student at Millennium High in Manhattan, sure, a few weird things have happened, a few suicides over the years, but nothing really bizarre. Until one day, in English class, when a hugely popular football player, Tyler, suddenly pitches himself off the roof to his death. Ali and her two best friends, Molly and Jen, are positive that Tyler’s death was not intentional. As they investigate, the bad boy in town starts to notice Ali. Daemon is gorgeous! Ali is shocked, but amazed. What could he want with her? As she ponders this, three new students arrive. Kian, Krysta, and Nathaniel all seem to have something…..different about them. Ali is floored when Kian appears more than interested in her too. What is she to do with two gorgeous guys after her? But not everything is as it seems. As Ali gets closer to each Daemon and Kian, the forces of the supernatural will come closer as well. One has been sent to protect, one has been sent to kill. Can Ali be saved? Or is she in way over her pretty little head?
 
 Happy reading,

Reviews from Sebrena

               She Speaks to Angels (The AngelFire Chronicles #1)
The book has great promise and is the first of a trilogy. I found the first half of the book moved rather slowly, however, the second half moved along at a fast rate and became a real page turner. It's a gripping young adult novel that brings together angels & demons with romance & suspense. A welcome diversion from vampires and werewolves. But, it's not for realists though.

                Dumah's Demons (The AngelFire Chronicles #1.5)
This is a great novella. It gives just enough to get you wanting more. It works as a stand alone but you you will need to read, She Speaks to Angels, in order to understand some of the characters. The story is of Kian’s sister, Dumah (Dumah is found in 'Falling Angels', Book 2) and how she becomes a Dark Angel. 

                Falling Angels (The AngelFire Chronicles #2)
I enjoyed this book. It has a good storyline about how people never seem to be happy with what they have and always want more. I couldn't seem to read the pages fast enough to see what would happen next. Can not wait to see how book 3 turns out. This is worth the read. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks,

Review of Dumah's Demons from J Bronder

Review from J Bronder Book Reviews

This story starts out after a bad gang attacks Kain and Dumah, his sister. Dumah starts having strange abilities and runs into Dameon. He explains to her how she is part angel and how she has special abilities. He also tells her how doing evil things can change her person. Dameon gives her a home, helps encourage her to use her abilities, and seems to give her the love that she is looking for. But there is something going on and Dameon is going to need Dumah’s help.
I really liked how you learn more about Dameon. This tied into She Speaks to Angels but it also can be a stand alone story. I loved it and felt compassion for Dumah when she found her place with the Dark Angels. Now I’m going to have to go back and read She Speaks to Angels again.
This is a great novella, just a quick taste to get you wanting more with She Speaks to Angels and Falling Angels.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
You can find Dumah’s Demons on Amazon and Goodreads.

Early Review of Falling Angels from Dennis

Early Review of Falling Angels from Dennis


I enjoyed this book. If you’re into angels then this is a series that you don’t want to miss. One thing I can say is that the characters are written well. I can truly believe that Ali and her friends are teenagers. Usually when I read a story it’s the characters and then the plot that draws my attention, but with Falling Angels it’s the plot that keeps drawing me back. I love the problems and objects that come in play that help move the plot along. I love the premise behind Angelfire and the idea of how we all have the ability to go dark within us. I love how demons come to be and even Dameon. For once the bad guys are actually really bad and we see just how evil they are. I can’t wait for the next book and to see Ali grow and mature. Read this series you won’t be disappointed.

Review of Dumah's Demons

from J. Annas Walker's Romance and More
on Dumah's Demons

This is a short outtake from the series. It did it's job in piquing my curiosity about the series, but it doesn't stand alone. I felt like I was missing a world of information vital to the story. In a way, it was a middle with no beginning and no real ending. If you're going to read this story, be sure to start with the AngelFire Chronicles book 1.

The story focuses on Dumah and her realization she possesses dark magic. In the opening scene, we see Dumah as the victim of a brutal rape, which is not graphically described but is very present. Her brother doesn't prevent the rape, and this divides the siblings. Dumah is immediately approached by Daemon and leaves with him to uncover her powers.

I had a bit of trouble believing a teenage girl would leave with a strange man/boy after being raped the previous night. Daemon is helpful and does offer her something she's never had, a family. However she showed no real reluctance or even shock over the violation. I can say the story is well written and made me wonder what brought the siblings to where this short novella begins. It is only my reaction to Dumah's rape that made me cringe. This isn't a story I would recommend to middle grade readers, but older YA readers familiar with the series would enjoy it. I give Dumah's Demons three stars.

She Speaks to Angels by Ami Blackwelder Will Have You Soaring

She Speaks to Angels by Ami Blackwelder is the first book in a new trilogy. A young adult novel that brings together angels, demons, romance, and suspense into a gripping story.

Allison looks in shock as a popular football player falls to his death outside her classroom window. Unfortunately, this is not as unusual as you would expect. This begins a mystery that Allison unravels piece by piece. Angels? Demons? How could that even be possible? And more importantly, why do they want to kill her? 

You will be waiting impatiently on the edge of your seat as you wait for what will happen on the next page. I am greatly looking forward to the release of book two.

Review from Zodiac Book Reviews

from Zodiac Book Reviews

There are many books out there with battles between angels and demons, good and evil; but She Speaks to Angels has elements I've never read in another book of its kind. Ami Blackwelder takes real life issues ans combines them with the supernatural to create a tale of gripping survival, intense romance, and puzzling mystery.

Ali's world changed abruptly when Tommy Bachelor jumped from the roof of her high school. But why would a popular football player kill himself? Ali believes that there's more to the incident than meets the eye and starts her own investigation into the suicide. What she finds is unbelievable. Angels in Manhattan? Yep, but they aren't the only ones taking up residence in the city. The demons, or Dark Angels, are also in town, and they want Ali dead. Why do they want her dead? Because she found out their secret and they are losing their power and the only way to get it back is by killing her. But the angels, or AngelFire, will do anything to protect her.

Ali doesn't know who she can trust. Dameon, the guy she's been crushing on since he transferred the Millennium High and is finally showing interest in her? Or the three new transfer students--Kian, Krysta, and Nathaniel--who warn Ali away from Dameon? What she does know is that none of them are what they seem and all of them are hiding something.

One of the unique things I really liked about She Speaks to Angels is the rules that the angels and demons are to live by. The AngelFire are pretty serious about keeping them, but the Dark Angels gain new, not necessarily stronger, powers by breaking them; such as fur or fangs. Breaking the rules results in loss of essence, loss of wings, and loss of gifts. One of the rules that Kian and Ali have grievance with is the one that states that there can be no intimacy with humans, otherwise there's a loss of wing power. This makes for some pretty intense moments between Ali and Kian when they do allow some small amount of physical contact.

I like that Ali didn't fall in love with Kian right away. She was so blinded by Dameon in the beginning that she never really saw Kian until it was almost too late. When she did finally see Kian, she realized her mistake in choosing Dameon over Kian. The fact that there can be little to no physical intimacy between them proves that their feelings are from the heart and not hormones. Because of the no intimacy rule, their relationship has an intensity that's purely emotional. I thought that the moments when Kian touches Ali with his ethereal form was very powerful, because it's the only way for them to really be able to touch without Kian losing his wing power.

The beginnings of Dameon and Sammael's plan for making an army of Fanged and Were demons to fight the AngelFire are revealed in She Speaks to Angels. With losses and gains at the end of this book, it will be interesting to see how these changes impact future events.

Review from Cocktails and Books

from Cocktails and Books

Ali Maney thinks she's just hit the high school jackpot when the hottest guy in the school starts paying attention to her, but she soon learns that the death of a classmate and the dark, hot Dameon are linked together and she's the next target for the sinister Dark Angel.

With the help of a group of newbies: Kian, Krysta and Nathaniel..who are AngelFire (angels for all intents and purposes), Ali tries to come to grips with the the reality that angels and demons do exist, while helping her new friends find a way to trap Dameon in hopes of stopping the demons from running wild in New York City.

As I've said before, I'm not generally a big angel story fan, but this one that I enjoyed. Ali was a girl who just wanted to be loved. She thought she finally found that in Dameon, but again, she finds that he didn't really want her...he wanted to get rid of her. But when she finally decides to trust in the group of newbies who have befriended her best friends, she finds the one person who loves her for who she is. 

Kian, having spent most of his life living on the streets, is found by the AngelFire leader and now living amongst his kind. While he did his job, he was still an outsider. But when he find Ali, he finds the reason in his life. He knows he must follow the rules and he cannot have any kind of intimate contact with Ali, Kian knows he will do whatever is necessary to protect Ali from Dameon and those like him.

Ami Blackwelder does an excellent job of creating a storyline and characters that has your attention locked from the very beginning. I will definitely be looking for the next installment in the series.

Review from My Book Addiction and More

from My Book Addiction and More

SHE SPEAKS TO ANGELS is an action packed story that keeps you wanting more. School is let out early due to a student jumping off the school roof and falling to the ground in front of Ali’s English class window. Is it murder? Will Ali ever get together with Dameon or will it be Kian? Dameon’s pull on Ali is a bit stronger then Kians at first and this leads to her almost being killed. Ms. Blackwelder keeps you on the edge of you seat waiting to find out what happens next.

This is a must read for anyone who likes a good mystery.

Rating: 4.5

from Cassie @ ShadowKissedCassie.blogpsot.com

Ami Blackwelder has done an amazing job again! Don’t miss adding this book to your “To-Read” Shelf!

Allison is sitting in her High School English class when Tommy, a popular football player jumps from the school roof and dies. All of Millennium High is shocked at the suicide but Allison is more than just shocked, she is suspicious. Her and her friends take it upon themselves to investigate Tommy’s death and what they find is more dangerous than any depressed teen suicide. Allison soon gets sucked into the world of Angelfire, angels who serve mankind by protecting humans from demons…..demons like Dameon.

Dameon has made it his mission to harm Allison and anyone who gets in his way. Now she must work will the amazingly handsome Kian to save New York from falling under the control of Dameon and his gang.

Blackwelder has created an angel story that surpasses other popular YA paranormal’s like Hush, Hush. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the world of Angelfire and getting to know the characters that made this story so memorable. Not many stories start off so intriguing and it doesn’t take much time to realize what seemed like a teenage suicide was really a murder. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series! Make the Angelfire series part of your library today!

Review of Dumah's Demons


from LynnaReynolds.Wordpress.com
My Thoughts:
This book starts off with the aftermath of some violence against Dumah. At that point, I came to realize that you will need to read She Speaks to Angels in order to understand some of the characters in this novella. Dumah’s story is a great incentive to go back and start from book one.
Dameon has come to her rescue and lets her know that they have a connection. He’s a character that I can’t decide if he’s good or evil. But that’s a good thing because he’s one reason to continue to read the series in order to try to figure him out.
What’s great about this story is that Dumah lets you know how old she is but the reader doesn’t get a sense of Dameon’s age. But I will need to read She Speaks to Angels before I will know for sure. Otherwise, the reader can make the choice. By making this a novella, there is no waste of scenes and no time to be bored. It’s also a great book to read if you only have a couple of hours and you want a great paranormal to read.
The ending will leave the reader hanging and wanting to go back for more. This book gets the reader ready for Falling Angels. I hope you will check out Ami’s vlog to give you a little incite as to what it’s about. You will not be disappointed if you follow this author.
