    One thought on “Angel Fire”

    1. Darcy Anderson is released on parole after serving a 10 year sentence for the murder of her parents and arson (they burned in a housefire). Darcy returns to her hometown and must deal with her gruff Uncle Edward, Barry, a local bully, Sheriff Burke, the bully's father, handsome Neil, who has been transferred to the local fire department, and her strange ability to call fire.I only got 56% into this book before I decided this book just wasn't for me, and we needed to part ways. That isn't, howeve [...]

    2. Valmore Daniels has written a complex and well-rounded character in Darcy Anderson, a woman who can set fire to things telepathically. The book opens with her leaving prison after doing 10 years for killing her parents in a fire which she accidentally started. The rest of the book focuses on Darcy coming to terms not only with what she did and her strange "affliction" but also the trials and tribulations of returning to her hometown where she's essentially an outcast.There was quite a bit of bac [...]

    3. I couldn't put this book down! It drew me in from the very beginning! I felt drawn to the main character and wanted to punch the daylights out of her ex-husband, Barry. What an ass! I enjoyed the journey of discovery as she learned about her power and how to wield it without injuring herself and others. I liked the cliffhanger ending because it made me want to pick up the next book in the series, like a good cliffhanger should. This is an author worth keeping an eye on!

    4. This book had so much potential. I was loving it! Such good villains without the paranormal taking it over. What ruined it for me was the ending. It was rushed and was a disappointment. I may give the series another chance, not too sure yet.

    5. I tried, I really did, but NOTHING happened no excitement, no battles, nothingNOTHING. BORED OUT OF MY MIND! DNF 70%

    6. I received a Kindle Touch for my birthday and this was the first book I read on it. I found the book through Prime's lending library, which is filled with delightfully embarrassing books. If nothing else, e-readers are grand because they allow me to joyfully read embarrassing books without facing the judgmental looks of my fellow subway riders.Valmore Daniels feels like a fairly novice writer. That doesn't mean "bad," but it means she uses lots of short sentences, repeats certain words and phra [...]

    7. Angel Fire: The First Book Of Fallen Angels ( maybe some spoilers. :) The only reason that I gave this book a 4 instead of a 5 was because of the plot. Its mostly about a woman named Darcy, "accidentally" killed her parents in a flaming fire. Of course, she gets blamed and goes to jail! So ten years later, she moves back to Middleton to return to her past life. She meets Aunt and Uncle Edward. So she tries to be nice and she gets a job working at their motel. She then meets a hot and sizzling ( [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. I have to say - I was incredibly disappointed in the direction this book went. It started out a bit slow - I had to put it down & pick it back up later several times (and I very rarely do this). It was an interesting concept, and I felt it could have been turned into something. My main problem was this - after reading the book, I feel like it was more of a 'prequel' novella, not the first book in a series. I'm disappointed to see that the 2nd book in the series is about a totally different m [...]

    10. This was not my favorite book but I can appreciate that it was written from a viwpoint I haven't read before.

    11. This seemed to take a long time to get to the point, additionally I found it depressing. It is well written and it is simply my patience and my mood that wasn't up for it.

    12. Whoa!****SPOILERS****This was AWESOME! Gawd I hurt for Darcy! She's been through hell and back. Like the universe won't give this girl a break. First she her husband is a piece of shit and beats her so bad she miscarries the baby he doesn't even know she carrying. Then in the same moment she discovers she has these powers she has no idea how to control and in the midst of it all passes out and awakes to find her parents dead. She spends a decade in jail only to come out and the only living blood [...]

    13. Interesting story conceptI am always looking for good stories and this did not disappoint. Am looking forward to reading the next book, as I'm sure it will explain more what was left unexplained in this novel.

    14. I did not enjoy this book at all. Very poorly written and the characters were either boring or cartoonish. I skimmed through most of this book. I will definitely not be reading anything else by this author.

    15. This review contains spoilers.Angel Fire has a really interesting concept - girl with the power of fire inside her loses her parents and now has to learn to function and control her ability before others get hurt. Let's start with the positives. I really liked Darcy at first. She had purpose and was being strong and trying to overcome the past and move forward with her life. I really liked Neil because he was supportive, protective, and a real gentleman. Uncle Edward was quite difficult in his o [...]

    16. Angel Fire begins with Darcy Anderson being released from prison and putted on parole. After serving her ten years sentence for manslaughter of burning both her parents, Darcy returned to her small town, Middleton. Darcy wanted to put the past behind her except her ex-husband and the Sheriff refused to allow her.The town of Middleton remembered Darcy for setting the house on fire while her parent was in the house. The thing is Darcy knew that she didn't set the house on fire by common means and [...]

    17. I did not know what to expect from this and still do not really. I liked the characters even though I felt they could have been given more of a foundation. They are just laid out without a lot of preamble right into the story, which does not allow for a lot of time to decide whether to like them or not. Everyone's background and personality as well as that of the town feels so rushed into place and not given a chance to just become who or what it is.Darcy Anderson was sent to prison for the deat [...]

    18. Darcy Anderson spent ten years in jail for an "accidental" fire that burned her house to the ground and her parents to death. Now she's back home in Middleton, Arizona, with her Uncle Edward and Aunt Martha. Darcy finds it hard to start over amid the distrust of the towns-folk who keep dredging up her past. Darcy can hardly blame them when she herself is mistrustful of her secret ability to start fire whenever she feels threatened. What frightens her more is her lack of ability to control the el [...]

    19. This was an interesting story and I liked the way it was written. It starts out with Darcy Anderson as she leaves prison on parole after accidentally killing her parents in a house fire. It then goes back and forward between her memories of the events that led her there and at times the sentence itself. This could easily have become confusing but it was done well and kept me interested.Darcy moves back to her home town and in with her uncle who is not at all happy to see her but agrees to let he [...]

    20. Review: Angel Fire (Fallen Angels #1) by Valmore Daniels I'm stuck on the fence on Angel Fire. I've thought it over for a few and days and still am not sure how to review it.What I liked: The synopsis sounds like something I'd want to read. It was an okay read. Nothing that I would go on and on about. The writing was good and a few of the characters were sympathetic.The heroine, Darcy, has the ability to set things/people on fire. She thought she had this dark secret but more people know about i [...]

    21. I bought this book because I saw the awesome cover on the author's Kindle signature. Truth. I was a little surprised by two things about it. First, despite the title, the presence of fallen angels in the novel is subtle, and never completely confirmed. Second, despite the fact that the speculative elements were subtle (especially in the first half), I blew through the book in two days.It has great pacing and a strong voice for the central character, both of which count for a whole lot. These are [...]

    22. I'd really prefer to give this a 2.5, because it starts out strong and interesting in my opinion but takes a pretty serious dive towards boring once she starts figuring her powers out. The beginning has a chick fresh out of jail returning to a pretty hostile small town, with a lot of issues to overcome. Yet once things get better for Darcy, Daniels devotes an entire chapter each to Darcy's aunt, uncle, and love interest Neil and their take on her powers. The result is a lot of time spent reading [...]

    23. Wow. Very interesting. The last time Darcy's husband hit her fire shot from her body which caught the house on fire and killed her parents. She served 10 years in prison for involuntary manslaughter and the book starts with her first day out. She is taken in by her somewhat reluctant aunt and uncle who become her biggest advocates. Thankfully. I felt for her but I wish she could have learned to control ability. I felt like she was the Tasmanian Devil when she was mad. Her now Ex- (who unfortunat [...]

    24. 3.5 stars.i enjoyed this book, it starts right off from the first page and keeps you going right to the end. Darcy is released from prison after a ten year stint for manslaughter, of her parents. Neil is the new local fire chief. together they discover each has their own special thing that makes them different, but neither really thought there would be anyone else who had these strange things going on. quite violent in places, but it is needed, to get the point across. it didnt quite get 4 stars [...]

    25. I enjoyed this book even though at times it was strange and at times confusing but in all, was a good read.Darcy have been in prison for the past 10 years for a crime that she did not mean to commit. She has a special power. When upset, she is able to burn things with her hands. This special power caused the death of her parents and her then Ex Fiance to despise her. Upon her arrival to her old home town, she is not very welcomed by her uncle, due to her causing the death of his sister. Her aunt [...]

    26. This is a complex story involving Darcy who has been incarcerated for manslaughter in the deaths of her parents. Her ex who hates her, wants revenge for being slighted. She returns home with misgivings but is determined to face the past to forge a new beginning. Can she survive or control her affliction? Or will it control her? She learns from her Aunt that her affliction is hereditary n is usually passed from generation to generation. In her situation it skipped a few generations but only manif [...]

    27. The plot of Angel Fire was unique enough to catch my interest. It starts with the protagonist getting out of prison, not something you see very often. Now let me warn you, this is not a happy ending type of story, actually there's not a lot of happiness in general. We have Darcy, who has a strange power and no ability to control its destructive nature. This is her story and its "real" ugliness included. But as the reader, I couldn't help but sympathize and hope things would continue to get bette [...]

    28. I don't usually read books about Angels, they are just not my thing and I find the books get a bit religious, anyway this one was for free and I thought I would give it a go, im glad I did, It was really good and very different, I really felt for Darcy, she seem's to get all the bad luck and people just seemed to hate her for something she cant control. I cried for her a lot through this book and the ending shocked the hell out of me, I had to stop reading cause I was bubbling away, it was so sa [...]

    29. So, I was intrigued by the description. Sounded interesting. The writing was smooth and it truly was an easy read. Sometimes you get books and they are choppy or just hard work. This was great. It flowed well.I didn't care for the story much. It felt more like Sweet Home Alabama meets Legion. Some parts were sweet, and happy, and then the whole tone changes and everything just ends in devastation. I was such a drastic change to the story and not in a good way.The book did have an actual ending t [...]
