Above The Flames by Cassandra Fear
Published by: Limitless Publishing
Publication date: April 19th 2016
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Jasmine’s sixteenth birthday was the worst ever…
All in one day, her dad died, she met a demon, and her mother rejected her existence forever. After all, the demon who killed her dad was there to take her, and all because of her stupid powers—the ability to conjure blue flames.
Two years later, she’s happy. But happy never lasts…
After moving to Idaho to live with her grandparents, Jasmine has a new life. Almost nobody knows about her powers, and she’s just a normal teenager with normal problems. Then comes her eighteenth birthday—and the earthquake that changes her world forever.
An army of demons rise from Hell. And Jasmine is right in the middle of the battle…
When demons claw their way to Earth, Jasmine is surrounded by hundreds of fire-eyed beasts. Worse, she is captured by a big-shot demon named Bael. He’s a tricky foe with a chip on his shoulder—and the desire to make Jasmine use her powers for evil.
Amon is a fallen angel with an attitude—and everything to lose.
Successfully escaping the underworld undetected, Amon is on a quest to regain God’s grace when he rescues Jasmine from the clutches of a particularly nasty demon he knows all too well. The attraction between him and the not-entirely-human captive is instantaneous. Heavenly sparks fly, but ideas of romance will have to wait. First they have to stop the demon race from wiping out the mortal realm. Humanity’s fate rests in their hands.
Can two troubled angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon’s souls be bound together—in hell?

The characters in Above the Flames all have a mind of their own. I don’t know how to really explain that except to tell you that they take me where they want to go, and I surrender myself to them. I have to. They might hurt me if I don’t. Ha! I created little cheat sheets for each of them, kind of a background for all of my characters, and there are a ton of them. Sometimes, they wanted to scribble off the pages I wrote for them though, and so what was I to do but listen to their pleas. The only way I can explain them is by giving you a bit of their story, so here goes.
Jasmine Reynolds is my main character. She sassy, and smart, but also stubborn and has a problem keeping her sarcastic responses to a minimum, which a lot of the time gets her in trouble. I have to say, a lot of her sarcasm comes from me. I react with sarcasm to almost every situation I can to bring a sense of humor into things. Of course, I’m not facing a big, bad demon, so for me it works and people usually just end up thinking I’m funny. For Jasmine, it doesn’t work out as well.
Amon is my fallen angel main character. I also write in his point of view quite a lot, since I write alternating point of views. Amon was alive eons ago, so it’s fun to write him because since he hasn’t been in this world, he doesn’t understand a lot of things in it. He comes from a time when they worked in the fields and didn’t have electricity, so I had a great time bringing him to life. Jasmine would say something in the story, and Amon had absolutely no clue what she was talking about because he wasn’t up with the whole slang talk of this century, so I had a great time playing on that throughout the whole story.
The last character’s point of view I write is my big baddy, Bael. He’s a demon, second in charge to none other than Lucifer himself. Bael was actually and still is my favorite character to write. He came to life for me on the pages, and as the story progressed he got even more complex. He’s scary, and he doesn’t hesitate. He’s strong and cunning. He’s a great bad guy, and I bet you he’ll give you chills sometimes as you’re reading him. I know he did me.
I definitely don’t want to give everything away. This is just a hint of what’s inside the pages of Above the Flames, my debut novel in The Flames Trilogy.
