Angelfire by Hanna Peach

Alyxandria is not your typical white-winged angel, in fact, you are much more likely to find her slicing into demons with her blades rather than plucking on harp strings. She trains harder than any other warrior angel in order to prove that she is nothing like the parents who abandoned her to become rogues, but after a series of confusing visions, Alyx saves Israel, a mysterious mortal who knows way too much than he should. After being selected as his Guardian, Alyx begins to unravel malicious plans that will change everything. An Elder's dark intent, a scattered key to unlock hell and a prophecy that warns of the greatest war this earth will ever know. Alyx's problems are multiplying and the war for earth is just beginning. 

Well then, forget everything you know about angels because 'Angelfire' will blow all of your misconceptions out of the water, because these angels are all about swords, magic and blood. Peach has seemed to combine the wings of heaven with all of the magic that comes from being a witch and has produced a completely different and slightly terrifying way of writing about angels, and this for me, was the best part of the book because I love when author's use their own imagination rather than borrowing off of others. As the main protagonist Alyx was such a great character because she was so emotionally complex and I can hardly ever go past a heroin who uses a sword to smash misogyny several layers into the ground. Peach's world is filled with betrayals, mysteries, lies and tyranny, and I can't wait to find out where they will lead Alyx and Israel in the next book. 

Rating: 3.5/5
