The handsome Angel from Lailah gets center stage in this continuation of Wattpad sensation Nikki Kelly’s romantic and action-packed series about mortals, vampires, and angels.

Gabriel is an Angel Descendant. He's also an ally to a generation of vampires who want to break away from the demon who controls them. His faith in the power of good over evil wavers, however, when he discovers that Lailah, the woman he considers his only true love, may be both angel and demon. Is their love enough to overcome the dark forces who are ready to go to war with Gabriel, the vampire Jonah, and the angel and vampire forces? And can Gabriel compete with Jonah, who is also in love with Lailah?

Once again, Nikki Kelly looks deeply into the heart and soul of good and evil to create a romantic, action-packed reading adventure.
I absolutely love Nikki Kelly! She's so sweet, and I enjoyed her debut Lailah. 

I don't want to spoil the previous book Lailah, for readers, so instead I'll list the

Top Reasons Why You Should Read Gabriel

1. Gabriel

He's kind of perfection, and you all know I have a thing for that! Seriously though, Gabriel (the angel) has such a swoony and angelic glow to him. His character seems to jump off the pages, and I soak up the pages he appears on. His romantic gestures, his noble actions, his everything makes him so so so wonderful. Oh and he's pretty attractive ;) More than that he's a leader and stands up for his beliefs, even if they go against everything he's been taught to know and trust before. Respect and love this guy! 

2. The Writing

Nikki's writing has an elegance and introspective view that perfectly mirrors Lailah's personality. I saw quite a bit of growth and maturity in the writing which I always love to see. Nikki has honed her writing techniques and varieties. Her descriptions and pacing have vastly improved as well.

3. The Plotting & Romance

This book is first and foremost about Lailah's journey as she makes choices that affect her and the ones she loves. It's fascinating to see where this whirlwind-of-emotions book will take us next. There is plenty of suspense of shocking revelations to excite and rivet readers.

We learn more about each of these characters, and Nikki does a wonderful job of creating and weaving in their backstories as it affects their personality and explains their actions. In regards to the romance, there is a love triangle in book 1, and all is settled in this book. It felt right, so I really can't argue. There is a HUGE cliffhanger at the end though, so you've been warned. 

About the Author

I was born and raised only minutes away from the chocolately scent of Cadbury World in Birmingham, England. So it will probably come as no surprise that when I'm not dreaming in Vampires & Angels, I dream in chocolate! For the past ten years I have lived in West London with my hubby and two dogs, Alfie - the Pug & Goose - the Chihuahua.

LAILAH is my debut novel, and first launched in serial form to wattpad, a readers & writers community. Within just 6months, LAILAH had over a million reads and thousands of comments and votes. Since then, The Styclar Saga has gone on to pick up a traditional deal with Feiwel & Friends, and LAILAH, the first book in the series is due for release on October 7th 2014.

These days I spend my time balancing my amazing job of writing fantasy fiction, with my other, very important role of Chocolate Connoisseur. I like to multitask and do the two together. It makes me happy.
