One night, I was attacked in my home. The fire ... it raged out of control. I survived the inferno, but my house burned to the ground - with my parents inside.
I was at a loss to explain to the courts what happened, and so they sent me to prison for ten years for manslaughter.
Now I'm out on parole, and all I want is to return to my home town and rebuild my life; but the man who attacked me is back to finish the job he started.
I can sense the power in me growing. If I can't control it, it will control me and destroy everything - and everyone - I love.
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 it than she thought.
I thought the premise of the story was good, I'm just not sure how well executed it was.
I really like her Aunt Martha and Uncle Edward and to some extent, Neil, her love interest. The rest of the characters just didn't touch me at all.
What I didn't like: I got the impression that Darcy was around 29 or 30 years old but the character didn't act that way. Well, the whole story seemed "younger". I know Darcy had had a bad time in her marriage and the "bad" guys were pretty bad but none of the characters had seemed to grow from the time Darcy went to prison.
This was a free Kindle book and I thought I'd give it a try. As I said, it's not poorly written, it just didn't connect with me. This is not a series I will continue but there are plenty of readers who have enjoyed the books, so no recommendation one way or the other from me. It's just personal preference.
Angle Fire: The First Book of Fallen Angels is still currently free for Kindle.
