My name is Darcy Anderson, and I am cursed with a dark power: Whenever my life is in danger, something inside me summons elemental fire to protect me. I cannot control this.
One night, I was attacked in my home. The fire ... it raged out of control. I survived the inferno, but my house burned to the ground - with my parents inside.
I was at a loss to explain to the courts what happened, and so they sent me to prison for ten years for manslaughter.
Now I'm out on parole, and all I want is to return to my home town and rebuild my life; but the man who attacked me is back to finish the job he started.
I can sense the power in me growing. If I can't control it, it will control me and destroy everything - and everyone - I love.

But someone has framed me for a crime I didn't commit. They want me dead, and they're willing to kill my friends and family to get to me.
Even as I try to save the people I love, a dark and ancient power grows inside me. I can feel its anger rising.
If it gets away from me, it will rip everything in my life apart.

With over 30,000 copies sold to date, and an average 4.2 out 5 rating on Amazon.com, The Complete Book Of Fallen Angels comprises five novels in the series.
To prospective translators: Although it is an immense task, you must be willing to commit to translating the entire box set rather than the individual titles. It's extremely important to maintain the same "voice" throughout the series. Once translation is completed, the individual books will be released as well as the box set with the same translator and the same contract under Babelcube's terms and conditions. Releasing the books in this manner provides mulitiple marketing opportunities, such as offering the first volume as a "free sampler" - a technique that has proven effective in the English versions. If you have questions about this process, please don't hesitate to message me. I'm looking forward to working with you.
I woke to a world of fire and ash.
Forcing my eyes open, I willed the fog in my brain to lift. My lungs screamed for air, and I opened my mouth to breathe, but thick smoke clawed at my throat. Gasping with the effort, I somehow managed to get my arms under me and raise my head up off the floor.
Through the curtain of hair in front of my face, my eyes were drawn to the wedding band glowing white hot on the charred carpet, but the roaring fire dragged my attention away at once.
The plaster walls of my basement apartment peeled and melted under the rage of the inferno. Crackling and snapping in protest, the cheap pine coffee table in front of me collapsed. The fabric and cushions of the oversized couch were entirely consumed, leaving nothing more than the crumbling black skeleton of its wooden frame.
Intense heat washed against my skin as fire chewed at the edge of the rug on which I lay; but my first thought was not for my own safety.
