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.

(WARNING: There might be spoilers in this review but if you want to read the said spoilers, do it at your own risk and highlight the parts where I marked "spoiler". You've been warned!)

KYLA: I have been waiting for a year to read Gabriel and finally THE WAIT IS OVER. If you'd ask if the wait was worth it then I'd say yes, it definitely was. Because, duh, #TeamGabrielFTW.  

CARMEL: To be honest, I was hesitant to read Gabriel because I LOVE LAILAH (book 1) SOOO MUCH. As Kyla and I both started, the book was leading to our ship #TEAMGABRIEL. We were happy and giddy! 

KYLA: The beginning of Gabriel was pretty fun, there was action already which I love. Plus if you're on #TeamGabriel, you'll surely enjoy it. 

CARMEL: I have never been this dedicated and passionate to a pair. You have no idea how much I ship Gabriel and Lailah. For me, Nikki Kelly made the love triangle work.

KYLA: It was indeed a great YA paranormal romance novel, it did not disappoint me. I love everything about it except when Lailah (the MC) gets annoying. To clear some things, Lailah is not a horrible main character. She's just always jealous of something or someone.

CARMEL: I get where you are coming from, but it's part of Lailah's journey I guess. She's part dark and part light. There would be things that confuses her. It's all part of the story. I'm excited on where these things lead. Of course, we can't spoil the events! They would have to read Lailah and Gabriel. *whispers: read the books* 

KYLA:Well, because Lailah did something! She always does something that makes it all bad. And that's all I can say since I don't want to spoil it for you.

CARMEL: Such a tease! Whatever she decides to do whether bad or good, I don't care as long as Lailah chooses Gabriel! I won't ever give up on my OTP! I think this book is ultimately about choices. Will Lailah choose her dark side? Will the people around her support her decision or will it just divide them? This book is essential to the whole series and it should not be missed! 

KYLA: So yes, I loved Gabriel. WE BOTH LOVED IT!   It definitely had twists that blew my mind and broke my heart. YES. THIS BOOK BROKE MY HEART. I swear, after reading the book, I wanted to cry and punch someone. But I didn't do those things because I decided to focus on the brighter side of the book instead.

CARMEL: Definitely heartbreaking! Nikki, what did you do to my fragile heart?!  NOOOOOOOOO! I could not believe what I read! I was just there staring blankly. I could not react. How could you react to that?! *cries a river*

VERDICT:As usual, Nikki Kelly delivered the book amazingly. I need the third book now, Nikki! Gabriel is action-packed and fast-paced filled with twists that will blow your mind and break your heart at the same time. I definitely recommend this series to those YA paranormal romance aficionados out there! GO FORTH AND READ IT!

SPOILER: I don't if you'll cry (like I did) but here's a piece of advice to all team Gabriel out there, get your tissues ready.

About Nikki Kelly:

NIKKI KELLY was born and raised only minutes away from the chocolately scent of Cadbury World in Birmingham, England. Lailah was first launched to Wattpad, an online readers and writers community. Within six months, the novel had over one million reads. Lailah is Nikki’s debut novel, and the first book in The Styclar Saga. She lives in London with her husband and their dogs, Alfie (a pug) and Goose (a 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.
