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 fallen angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon's souls be bound together-in hell?
Above The Flames by Cassandra Fear
(Above the Flames Trilogy, #1)
Jasmine clearly wasn’t born under a lucky star, but she could conjure blue flames from her hands and because of that, her sixteenth birthday will forever go down as one of the most painful days of her life. The day she lost her father to death, was the day she lost her mother to an emotional death, it was also the day the demons came for her, all because of the blue flames.
Clueless to their origin, she kept her “gifts” secret in her new life with her grandparents, far from the mother who didn’t want her, while trying to live a normal teen’s life, with normal teen problems. That was soon to change on her eighteenth birthday when the gates of Hell unleashed a legion of demons to hunt her down, all because one monster from the underworld wanted her as his evil minion.
Demons weren’t the only creatures to leave Hell, a fallen angel, desperate to regain God’s good graces will fight to keep Jasmine safe. Amon is a force to be reckoned with, powerful, ancient and filled with attitude and he is falling for Jasmine, the clueless pawn in another battle between good and evil. What is Jasmine? Clearly not entirely human, clearly unprepared for what Fate has decreed for her and clearly caught in a romantic triangle between the human boy who would do anything for her and this mysterious fallen angel. The mortal world is on the brink of destruction and devastation as the demons gain strength with each kill ad it is up to a ragtag group of unlikely heroes to save the world from torment.
Heroes will die, friends will betray, and hearts will break in Cassandra Fear’s Above the Flames as the battle to possess the very soul of Earth is fought. Cassandra Fear has packed her world building, her action and an amazing plot into book one of what looks to be a fantastic new series. The angst takes a back seat to the bravery and determination of one girl who finally learns why she is different and attempts to overcome the pain of loss while learning the power she possesses and why. Fascinating from start to finish, a touch of romance, a lot of demons and someone will have Hell to pay, if Jasmine has anything to say about it. Seriously, have you ever been on the receiving end of a strong willed teen?
