Above the Flames by Cassandra Fear WITH Review

Above The Flames by Cassandra Fear 
Published by: Limitless Publishing
Publication date: April 19th 2016
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:
Jasmine’s sixteenth birthday was the worst ever…

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 troubled angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon’s souls be bound together—in hell?



Review:
5 stars

I was asked for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS

This was a very good book for a debut author!  I was very impressed when I found out that it was a debut novel.  The story line was good.  I was pulled in and couldn't put the book down.  I loved the main character.  Her snarky and snappy come backs were good.  Through all of her loss in life, she never once lost herself.  She continued to fight.  I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Jasmine has had a rough life.  Something has always been different.  On her 16th birthday, she watched a demon kill her father.  That is when everything changed for her.  Her power grew stronger.  She didn't understand her powers and therefore tried to keep it locked in a box deep inside of herself.  After her father died, Jasmine moved to live with her grandparents.  Things were looking up.  That is until demons came, kidnapped her, and changed her world for good.  Why are the demons hell bent on capturing her?  Do they succeed?  Who does Jasmine meet on her journey of fighting evil?

I would recommend this book to others.  It is a good clean book of angels vs demons.  I would even let my 14 year old read this book.  I think she would enjoy it as well.  I look forward to reading the next book that comes from this author!
