Hello everyone! I'm lucky enough to be participating in the She Speaks to Angels blog tour! Here is the beautiful cover and more information about the book and it's author Ami Blackwelder!

She Speaks to Angels

Series: (The AngelFire Chronicles #1)

Published: 2012

Genre(s): YA, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis: What if everything you believed was a lie?

A Suicide
Seventeen year old Allison Maney attends Millennium High School in Manhattan. Nothing out of the ordinary, unless you consider the occasional suicides at the school. At least that is what everyone is told, what everyone believes. But Tommy Bachelor was a popular football player; why would he jump off the roof of the school?

Dangerous Liaisons
When Dameon pays attention to Ali, she couldn't be more excited, because for the past three months he was all she could think about. But now that Dameon is finally pining for her affections, she is becoming more and more wrapped up in a clique of three who, as new transfers to the school, are proving to be trouble. But at least Dameon loves her, doesn't he?
Kian- a dangerous love interest she did not ask for.
Powers- belonging to an underworld she never knew existed.
A Clique- that could be friends or foes?

A Soul Purpose
The underworld of angels and demons have one thing on their mind: Earth.
Demons want to do what they want.
Angels want to protect humans from these rogue angels, AKA: Demons 
For Allison Maney, everything is not exactly what it seems…

A Suspenseful Romance 
Caught between Dameon and Kian, the suicide and the clique of three,
Ali won't know who to trust…or who to love.
