ABOUT When Ash Rains Down
Book 1 
Release Date: December 1, 2016

Angels are real.

So are demons.

Shady Creek gets a whole lot scarier after Julia learns she's part angel, especially since the only person
she can trust is an angel who's as infuriating as he is attractive.

Julia received a necklace containing the songs of the angels from her dad
when she was four. When she
was eleven, he abandoned her family and the necklace went silent. At seventeen, Julia's doing
everything she can to maintain security for her family, but now her necklace seems to have come to life
once again. And that's not all that's changing.

When a robber attempts to steal from their diner, the necklace blazes and burns her chest. Pain in her
back is nearly unbearable as the thief transforms before her eyes... into something

Demon after demon threaten Julia's home, family, and friends, and she realizes there
may have been
something more behind her dad's disappearance. And now there may be something
or someone
dangerous after her.

Julia has to accept that she is not quite human. Will her infuriating but attractive Guardian Angel be able
to prepare her for the battle to come?

ABOUT When Smoke Rains Down
Book 2 
Release Date: May 27, 2017

If only humans knew the invisible danger lurking around them...&n

In the aftermath of an explosion and Homecoming battle, Julia tries
to form some semblance of a
routine: work, study, and visit her brother who remains hospitalized. Unable
to confide in anyone about
her double life of being both human and angel, and fearful she'll bring
more death and destruction to
those she loves, she pulls away from her family and best friend.

When demons once again start to show up at every turn, seemingly bringing
about her brother's
deepening depression, she demands her sword from Nicholas. Ever the stern Guardian Angel, he forbids
her from using it. Isolated, she takes protecting her brother into her own hands. But when demons show
they have evils hidden within their weapons in addition to their ability to siphon souls from the living,
Julia's not sure she knows the best way to handle saving him any longer. Especially when ash-colored
lines begin to appear on humans, lines of demonic poison that travel
through their veins toward their
hearts and alter their moods.

Thrust into a dark world of conspiring demons, Julia is in more danger than she ever imagined possible.
To stop evil from spreading and overtaking those she loves, she'll have to seek out the one person she
mistrusts most
especially when a line appears on her own arm, and her apathy toward doing much
of anything, including saving anyone, grows.

Enter a complex world where humans, demons, and angels collide, all battling to rule the Earth.

ABOUT When Fire Rains Down
Book 3 
Release Date: June 27, 2018

Hell is nothing like Julia imagined and beyond everything she feared.

The little town of Shady Creek is under attack by Lucifer and his demons.
To save the people she loves,
human-angel Hybrid Julia must rescue their kidnapped Guardian Angels, even when
it means defying her father.

Trouble is, he knows only too much about Hell's perils. When a demon
sucks Julia into a cosmic vacuum,
the experience leaves an indelible blight she dares not mention for fear of losing her place on the
angelic rescue team.

As a growing demon army surrounds Shady Creek, Julia's feelings for her own Guardian become all too
real and dangerous. But the cosmic imbalance fueled by Hybrid Angels, Rogue Guardians and Warriors is
already depleting the strength of the rescue team. And there's no room for distraction when the mission
is to get into Hell

and out again.

For the sake of the mission, Julia must face the truth of the Hybrids'
existence. Because nobody will be
safe unless she can trust the gift of free will

for others and for herself

in this end-of-the-world finale
to The Legend of Shady Creek Trilogy.

My Review:
This series was fascinating! I loved getting to know Julia as she tried to figure out the world she thought she knew as opposed to the one that started opening up to her. Her journey from a high schooler just trying to help her family stat afloat to a warrior in a spiritual battle was interesting and unique. The author does a fabulous job of developing the characters and bringing their story/battle to life. There are quite a few twists and turns that made it hard to put down! This series is a fun one to pick up that gives readers a lot to think about.
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.

Cecelia Earl graduated with a degree in education and has been teaching ever
since. She's a
wife, a mom of three boys, and an owner of a magical laundry pile that never
stops growing. She lives

near enough to Green Bay, WI that her refrigerator is always stocked with cheese, and
the first colors
her children learned were green and gold.

She's a first grade teacher in a Catholic school by day, a mom always, and a writer in her sleep, but that's
okay because being an author is a dream come true. She writes angel fantasy books
for young and
youngish adults. If you feel young, she writes for you
whether or not you feel particularly angelic.
