“Fans of The Mortal Instruments [by Cassandra Clare] will love this!”
After escaping from the Hollows and the Michaelea lightwarriors, Jordan takes Alyx and Israel to Aradale, a secret Rogue community, where they appear to be safe − for now. But did they bring the enemy with them? “Mini”, the strange and speechless young girl they rescued from the Hollows, is not as she seems. Why was Elder Michael keeping her locked up? What is she hiding?
Alyx and Israel are driven further apart as Israel continues to obsess over making Adere human and Alyx hides two secrets from him: that he may be part-demon and that she may be carrying his child, a tri-blood keye that can be used to unlock Hell.
Out in the mortal cities, pieces of Black Stone, the only material that can disrupt the angels’ healing abilities, continue to be stolen to make weapons for Samyara’s dark army. Alyx and her friends must stop them, but this means infiltrating holy and guarded places to steal the Black Stone − a monastery in remote China, a mosque in Saudi Arabia, an art gallery in Florence and a cathedral in Peru.
Can they win this deadly race against the Darkened?
Angelfire will be FREE through Amazon for 28 May to 1 June 2013.
Angelstone will be on sale for US$0.99 for 31 May and 1 June only.
“Despite everything, I…” Israel’s mask faltered for a moment and Alyx saw a little softness return to his eyes. “Damn you,” he all but whispered. “Despite everything you’ve done, I still love you, Alyx.”
These words stung her heart as if it were unthawing. It was the sweetest pain. Alyx tried to speak but she could only gasp instead. He loved her. Despite all that she had done he still loved her…
He placed his hands firmly around her face, fusing their gazes together. “You belong to me,” he continued, his eyes burning with intensity. “And I belong to you. But until you pull your head out of your ass and stop looking at me like this helpless child, like this boy who needs saving, we can’t be equals. And I refuse to be with someone who doesn’t view me and treat me like an equal. Because you know what? I’m tired of holding you up on this pedestal. You’re not perfect. Far from it actually, as you continue to demonstrate.”
Alyx felt her mouth begin to drop open. His scolding had caused her face to flush with shame. She wanted to feel angry at him, to feel bitter, to yell at him. And yet, staring at this man, this man, who was so assuredly putting her in her place, her body flooded with so much heat she could barely hold herself standing. She didn’t think she had ever wanted him as badly as she did now. Stupid body. Stupid heart. Betraying her again.
“You’re not perfect,” he continued, “and neither am I. But we’re perfect… for each other. I mean, Jesus, Alyx, you saw us in there… we’re better together. Isn’t that what we’re all seeking? The one who makes us better than when we are alone?”

About the Author
“I write about fantastical things, especially creatures with fangs, magic or wings.
I want to tell you tales that will rip away the glamor from your life, keep you running and fighting and gasping long past the devil’s hour and maybe, just maybe, reality will look a little bit different when you return.
Sit with me around this witchlight. Let me tell you a story.”
At the beginning of 2013, Hanna left her “respectable” career, packed up her life and sold everything except for what fit in a suitcase to be a full-time writer and go “gypsy-ing” across Europe. Even she thinks that she is a little crazy sometimes.
Hanna Peach is the author of Angelfire, book 1 of the Dark Angel series. Angelstone, (Dark Angel #2) is due for publication on 31 May 2013 and Angelsong (Dark Angel #3) is due late 2013.
