She Speaks to Angels (AngelFire Chronicles, #1)

Book Blurb for She Speaks to Angels

"I tried not to sound hysterical, but it’s not every day you find out the paranormal is hunting you."
What if everything you believed was a lie?
A Suicide
Seventeen year old Allison Maney attends Millennium High School in Manhattan. Nothing out of the ordinary, unless you consider the occasional suicides at the school. At least that is what everyone is told, what everyone believes. But Tommy Bachelor was a popular football player; why would he jump off the roof of the school?
Dangerous Liaisons
When Dameon pays attention to Ali, she couldn't be more excited, because for the past three months he was all she could think about. But now that Dameon is finally pining for her affections, she is becoming more and more wrapped up in a clique of three who, as new transfers to the school, are proving to be trouble. But at least Dameon loves her, doesn't he?
A Soul Purpose
The underworld of angels and demons have one thing on their mind: Earth. Demons want to do what they want. Angels want to protect humans from these rogue angels, AKA: Demons
A Suspenseful Romance
Caught between Dameon and Kian, the suicide and the clique of three, Ali won't know who to trust…or who to love, because for Allison Maney, everything i not exactly what it seems.

Ami Blackwelder is paranormal writer. Growing up in Florida, she graduated UCF and in 1997 received her BA in English and additional teaching credentials. Then she packed her bags and travelled overseas to teach in Thailand, Nepal, Tibet, China and Korea. Thailand is considered her second home now. She has always loved writing and wrote poems and short stores since childhood; however, her novels began when she was in Thailand. Having won the Best Fiction Award from the University of Central Florida (Yes, The Blair Witch Project University), her short fiction From Joy We Come, Unto Joy We Return was published in the on campus literary magazine: Cypress Dome and remains to this day in University libraries around the USA. Later, she achieved the semi-finals in a Laurel Hemingway contest and published a few poems in the Thailand’s Expat magazine, and an article in the Thailand’s People newspaper. Additionally, she has published poetry in the Korea’s AIM magazine, the American Poetic Monthly magazine and Twisted Dreams Magazine. 
I wasn't quite sure I was going to like this book or not.   I guess I was thinking along other lines as to what I was expecting.  I was thinking it was going to be about somebody speaking to angels.   Well, that's not quite what it's about.   As I read I found that the book was touching my heart. It's not all sweet and goody goody.  It has it's deep dark moments.   It's a struggle between good and evil.As I read I started to really enjoy the characters and wanting to know more about them.    It takes place in Manhattan at Millennium High School. Ali Maney is a teenager attending the high school and she is just an ordinary everyday girl, living a rather dull life.   Her home city of Manhattan is  a rather calm city where very few bad things happen.   That is,  a normal day in class, a football star, Tyler suddenly leaps off the roof of the school.  Was this an accident or did Tyler intend to commit suicide? Ali and her friends start to notice some strange things.   It didn't add up.   For some reason,  a couple of boys start to take note of her.  One of the boys is the town's "bad" boy, Daemon.  Look at the name,  interesting?  Then some new kids come to school.   Kian is one of them and he seems like he likes her too.   She never had two guys after her at the same time.  She never had any guys after her at all.  But, what is this all about?   Two guys liking her, the football star leaping or being pushed off the roof?   Questions to be answered.   Ali starts to get to know the two boys and finds some things that are disturbing.   Unknown to Ali, some forces beyond her control are also working either against her or for her. You'll have to read to find out. 
We have a bad boy and we have a good boy.   One is out to kill her and the other is out to save her.  You may be surprised to find out which is which. I was.   As we all know, nothing is as it seems, ever!  Has Ali stepped beyond the safe line?   Has she gone into a space that she can't  get out of?   The author wrote a thought provoking read that will keep you on your toes trying to answer questions and trying to decide who is evil and who is good.    Is it possible one is an angel and one is a devil?   Think hard on this one.  I'm ready for book two.  

This is the first in a series, Angel Fire Chronicles.
I would suggest reading the series in order although they are stand alone books.
I received a complimentary CD book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
