Abigail Cells had a nightmare the day before she met Gideon, the new guy in school who has every girl drooling just to be near him. In her nightmare, she was murdered by a magical creature. As she gets to know Gideon, she begins to remember pieces of her nightmare, and was shocked when Gideon turned out to be the creature from her nightmare. Who is Gideon really, should Abby allow herself to fall completely for him, or is he the next disaster waiting to happen

I have received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review. I like a good story with angels and demons
Before Gideon shows up at her school, Abigail dreams she is murdered by a magical creature. As she gets to know Gideon she remembers more and more about her nightmare until she realizes the creature that killed her in her dream is Gideon. Who is Gideon really? And what does he want from her?
I really liked the characters in this book. Abigail is a very interesting main character. She’s not just another girl who manages to get herself in danger because she fell in love with the wrong guy. She managed to surprise me more than once and I kept wanting things to work out for her. She’s a little bit of a damsel in distress but that didn’t annoy me too much.
Gideon is a very unique character. He manages to scare everyone, Abigail included, but he’s also extremely funny.  He might be evil but it’s impossible not to like him.
Tristan is the opposite of Gideon. While Gideon is evil, Tristan is an angel. He’s caring and loving and an all-around great guy.
This is an interesting story with good twists and turns. The author definitely did a good job creating this world and developing all the characters.
All in all, this is a good and well-written story with interesting characters and good plot twists.
If you like Young Adult Paranormal stories that include angels and demons I think you might enjoy this book.

Rating:  Worth Your Time (4 Stars)
