Review: Angel Fire (Fallen Angels #1) by Valmore Daniels

I'm stuck on the fence on Angel Fire.  I've thought it over for a few and days and still am not sure how to review it.


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.
