Book Review: Angelfire by Hanna Peach (Book One of the Dark Angel series)

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Genre: Supernatural Fiction

Age Recommendation: 13 and up

This book was very fast paced and I loved it. The characters were very well-developed and new characters were slowly introduced  into the mix.

Angelfire

———————————————–

Alyx has a special gift that must be kept a secret.

Lately, she has been seeing visions of a mortal, hunting down the Darkened, some of the most evil creatures to roam the Earth. Moreover, Alyx feels a tie to the mortal and also a need to save his life. One time, she has a vision that the mortal is about to die and ALyx uses her powers given to her by her superiors- the Elders.

Alyx finally meets the mortal, Israel. They realize that the bond between them isn’t ordinary and that their life sources are tied together. This is a connection that has not occurred in many, many years and for some reason, the Elders are bent on Alyx never seeing Israel again.

Moreover, the Elders are attempting to rid Alyx of her powers in order to remain the most respected members of society but Alyx manages to run away and go into hiding with Israel.

However, her own people have turned on her, and the army they have sent out to find her may be too much for her to handle.

Will she survive?

Book Review: Matched by Ally Condie (Book one of the Matched series)

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 13 and up

I’d heard many rave reviews about this series and I am happy to say that the first book did not disappoint. The author had a very unique idea and theme, and her writing flowed really well.

Matched

———————————————

Cassia is a young girl who is about to get matched. She is really excited, but also apprehensive about meeting the person that she will spend the rest of her life with, as chosen by her superiors. When Cassie is matched, she is thrilled to learn that she has been matched with someone she knows, because this is a very rare occurrence. Moreover, her match is her best friend Xander.

However, when Cassie picks up her microcard, a card designed to educate her about her match, she is confused as she sees another face before Xander’s- a face of a person she knows as well.

Ky is a boy whose parents committed a crime. For this reason, he is not allowed to be matched, and Cassie knows this. However, when she sees him on her microcard before Xander, she starts questioning the superiors and how they could have allowed something like this to occur.

When her curiosity goes too far, Cassie may have put herself and her family in danger.

Will she know her limits?

This book was really fast-paced and I enjoyed it a lot. There were some gory scenes here and there but they didn’t seem out of place.

Angel Fire

—————————————–

Darcy Anderson can play with fire. From a young age, she had the ability to control fire, but her power didn’t affect her life until she accidentally burned down her house and killed her parents. Now, she’s back from jail on parole after ten years and wants nothing more than to start over.

However, her childhood sweetheart, who later abused her, wants Darcy gone from his life. He makes it his mission to make Darcy miserable. Nobody in this town trusts her after what she did and she can’t go anywhere without drawing stares. To make things worse, nobody knows about her powers, so it seems like she is a mentally unstable woman who murdered her parents.

Moreover, the town sheriff seems to have something against Darcy and is constantly looking for reasons to get her convicted again.

Will Darcy be able to start over?
