Review

"An 'I can't put this book down if I tried' type of read. The author does a superb job of creating an intense, angst-driven paranormal storyline and I was hooked right from the start. Fans of young adult and paranormal genres are sure to find a new favorite author in Komali da Silva." - Readers' Favorite
"I appreciated that the author dubbed this a YA book and KEPT IT a YA book which is rarer and rarer to find these days." - Bex 'n' Books
"Angels Dawn is one of those books that grows on you with time and you'll always kinda remember it." - Taylor_Reads of Bibliophile Gathering

ARE YOU SERIOUS KOMALI?!

Dawn Huntington is your normal teenage girl. She's ready to have her sweet 16 birthday party with family, best friend Asima, best friend turned boyfriend Nate, and all her other friends. On the night of her party, she witnesses a crime that ultimately involves her personally. It was an intense scene that I could feel!

She ends up in the hospital with a head injury that starts some weird things happening to her. She starts to hear voices, sees things, feels weird things, and can't understand what's happening to her.

In walks Angelo. Dawn is paired up with him in glee club. They fall in love with each other but Angelo is different. Dawn finds out what he is, and she accepts it so I thought things were sweetly wrapping up.
WRONG! In walks Bonita and she's not your average bad girl.

Kamali's writing flows really well. Not only will she grab your attention right off, she will keep it! She then throws new twists and surprises in that you will never see coming! I couldn't put the book down as I had to see what was going to happen!

I enjoyed this book very much! I will admit I'm very frustrated right now (in a good way) because she ends the book on cliff hanger that made me yell out loud! I'm not sure how I'm going to make it until the second book comes out but I will say this, don't judge a book on it's genre or you will miss out on a great story by a new author! Verified!

Angels Dawn by Komali Da Silva is a teenage/young adult paranormal that will take you by surprise. First I was not expecting a paranormal book. When I figured out that it was one, it was not the type that I was expecting. There are no vampire, werewolves, and zombies. So if that is what you are looking for, this is not the book for you.

Dawn has high hopes for her 16th birthday. Those hopes are dashed when trying to help someone goes really wrong and her life takes an unplanned turn. She loves Nate, her boyfriend/best friend, but it is in the same way that she loves her other best friend Asima. When she meets Angelo, Dawn realizes that she is not being fair to Nate and must let him down without losing his friendship. As Dawn and Angelo seem to be getting closer and closer, Bonita (a friend of Angelo’s family), decides to step in and take Angelo for herself.

That is a watered-down description of the book because I do not want to give away what the paranormal part of the story is. While you may see similarities to other books, this story has one of its own to tell. I refused to even cook supper until I finished with this book. The ending left me with my jaw hanging down and asking “How can it end like that?” I loved this book and cannot wait for the next installment…. Please, please tell me there will be one.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was just “Wow”, but I did feel like there could have been a little more depth to some of the characters. There is also the question of how was that able to happen to someone like him. I would, and have, recommended this book to some of my friends. I think they will like it as much as I did.

I just finished reading Angels Dawn and wanted to get my thoughts down while they were still fresh in my mind. The story line is definitely unique. I really didn’t know what to expect as I tend not to read blurbs and will usually go by reviews or word of mouth. So I entered this one blindly knowing only that it was a YA novel, which is one my favorites to read. While some of the content was borderline new adult, for the most part the story stuck to the maturity level of its main characters. They were an interesting bunch and brought the story to life. I loved the paranormal elements with a little good vs. evil thrown in, makes for a much more interesting story. I give kudos to Komali for creating such a unique world with fun plot twists.

There is a reason however for my 3 star rating. I have a couple issues, primarily with the writing, that I need to mention.

- The text is a bit repetitive, mostly the descriptions of people and situations.
- There are quite a few inconsistencies in the story, noted in the passage of time and character details.
- It doesn’t always flow, especially in the beginning. The sentences are sometimes choppy.
- I feel it could of benefited from another round of editing. I hate to say it but it seems like the entire second half lacked editing as quite a few of the phrases didn’t make a whole lot of sense.

Despite my issues with the writing, I’m curious to see where the series goes from this point. The ending, while not exactly a cliffhanger, will leave you curious and wanting more.

5 stars- Oh boy! What can I say? Loved it!
Paranormal young adult, very clean and very well written. Author's writing style is really good. I really enjoyed reading the story. Big cliffhanger at the end and a bit sad too. Ok, I must confess, I was super sad at the end. But I can't wait to read the next one, I want to read it like right now. I must know what happens next!!!

*****SPOILERS*****
Things I loved about this story: the friendships, I loved Asima, she is like the perfect best friend. I also LOVED Nate. He was so cool and nice and the perfect boyfriend. Awesome book boyfriend material. Jan is the super awesome sister and I loved their relationship. Dawn's parents are super nice too and even though the dad is a bit strict sometimes, I felt like he was a great dad. The mom was a friend to her daughters and I really enjoyed their relationships.
Angelo, what can I say about him... the hero, dreamy, perfect. His brother, Pietro, super cool and super hot.
Another fave character was Cinty (Jasinta) she is the housekeeper and she is like a second mom to Dawn.

I must say the story is an insta-love kind of story but it's not written badly, I normally dislike insta-love but this one was good. It's young love and nothing hard and heavy, it's more on the sweet side and very enjoyable.
Paranormal aspects to the story: we have angels, not gonna spoil this for you so I won't tell you who they are. We have a seer and we have a witch (kind of) at least I think she is a witch. We also have some kind of bad guys that could be demons but I am not sure. Maybe on the next one we will know more.
The story has action and suspense. Funny moments and very sad ones too. It pretty much has everything you want in a story.
If you like reading paranormal and YA books then I highly recommend this one.
