After reading the blurb I knew that this is going to be an awesome book and it certainly lived up to my expectations!! The first chapter is an encounter of a meet in purgatory which already had me intrigued. Then we meet Alyx and learn about her and her place amongst the angels; what her role is, that she has been having visions and has had a tough upbringing.
Alyx has learnt from an early age that she has to look after herself since she was abandoned by her parents when she was born. Her flock leader, Symon raised her since then and has been the only person she has been able to count on. She is a tough character as she is an immortal and always puts her duties first, not questioning anything until she meets a Rogue who gets her thinking.
Alyx is dedicated to do her work but finds it hard to stick up for herself. The longer I read though, the more I liked her. She starts to question her beliefs and people begin to notice her and try to keep her under control. She is very talented as she has fulfilled most of her marks at an early age and she is a unique Angel. No matter what happens though she tries to think for herself and is able to see who is trying to manipulate her. It is hard for her to allow people to get close but once you earn her trust she will guard you with her life.
Israel is an honest person and once he meets Alyx you can see they already have a connection. They will need to work together to remain alive and to figure out the Blood Prophecies which were foretold by Raphael before he died. The Blood Prophecies were a great twist into the building plot and I like the way it is headed as Alex doesn’t realise how big of a part she will play in it.
The Blood Tattoos were an interesting concept that I really liked. The angels tattoo themselves with the ink of another Angel so that they can use different magics that may not be in their bloodline. The author even writes small paragraphs in between chapters to detail the use of each magic and I found it really helpful in grasping the whole Angel/magic concept.
I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. There are plenty of lies, deception, action and lust. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, Hanna would throw in a twist which would take us in a different direction. There were times I was saying “Don’t do it!” and the characters would, of course do it!! Angelfire was an entertaining read and I can’t wait to see what happens next because that ending left me wanting more!!
