Today I am a host for the Blof Tour of When Ash Rains Down by Cecelia Earl, coordinated by YA Bound Book Tours.
PUBLISHER: Cecelia Earl
DATE PUBLISHED: 4th January 2017
Being crowned homecoming queen and enduring a week at the center of her classmates’ attention is eighteen-year-old Julia White’s worst nightmare—even with Cole, her long-time crush, as her date. But when Julia is attacked by a green-blooded demon that vanishes in a plume of smoke, she comes face to face with what real nightmares look like—in the flesh, and all of the homecoming stuff hardly matters anymore.
As a frightening wave of crime infiltrates her small Wisconsin town, Julia tries to avoid Nicholas, a brooding, infuriating relative of Cole’s, who insists she’s the reason behind the corruption. He claims the culprits are demons who are after powers that only she—a human-angel hybrid—possesses. It’s unbelievable, of course, until he takes her to a hidden battlefield where warrior angels train to fight soul-siphoning demons—and her own angelic wings unfold.
When angels and demons draw battle lines, endangering everyone in their way, Julia has to find a way to protect them all, including herself. Because as it turns out, she’s the devil’s most powerful weapon against the angels, and he’ll stop at nothing to claim her.
The final battle between Heaven and Hell has begun.
Amazing take on angels and demons from a debut author.
The plot of this book was fast paced and went from semi-contemporary at the beginning to paranormal by the conclusion of the book. This book packed a lot in and completed the urban-fantasy world building in a way reminiscent of The Mortal Instruments series. The characters themselves were flawed and well-rounded individuals. Julia was particularly driven and focused and this leant to a complete collapse of her world upon the discovery of this new paranormal world that she had unknowingly been a part of. This was a thoroughly enjoyable new urban fantasy book and an amazing commencement of a brand new series.
