Review: Angels Dawn - Komali da Silva

Angels Dawn by Komali da Silva
 Heather's rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like all books that I read for the purpose of a review I went into it blind. I did not read a synopsis or anything other than the title. I like the unknown and surprise of what I may find. The only thing I did know about this book was that it was more of a YA novel.

I fell in LOVE with this book! The book was SO well written that I felt transported to a different place. It was fantastic, its hard to find books that do such a great job of mental escape!

Dawn turns 16 and her life is changed forever. She runs through such a gambit of emotions and life choices in that one year that most people go through MAYBE in a lifetime. Friendship, young love, heart break, hatred, betrayal, angst, malice…the reader is rung through such an emotional rollercoaster I wanted to take a nap when it was over!

The paranormal element was unexpected and while I am a bit “overdone” in the paranormal department I found it rather enjoyable and fitting to the overall story line. 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. I would have no problem recommending this book to a teenager or a friend with teenagers.

I do hope there is a sequel as the reader was left with a lot of questions and there opportunity is definitely there to expand the storyline.

Great read I would give it a solid 5 stars.

Angels Dawn

Dawn Huntington wants what every girl wants, a sweet sixteen birthday party with her friends, family, and some hot boys, but fate has other plans. On the night of Dawn's sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a crime she can't turn her back on, and the decisions she makes that night will change her life forever.

Never having been confronted with such violence, Dawn turns to a mysterious and beautiful boy named Angelo, only she can't remember what happens that night. To make things more complicated, Dawn is in a relationship with Angelo's complete opposite, Nate. Dawn doesn't want to hurt Nate, yet she can't shake her feelings for Angelo, even when she can't help but feel he's hiding something from her, and it could be something dark. Why is Angelo acting so weird around Bonita? Are they together? Are they really only friends?

Angelo may be trouble, but Dawn can't ignore her feelings for him. Dawn is at a crossroads. Should she choose love? Or friendship? Once Dawn finally finds the courage to choose, she thinks the drama is over. But Dawn wasn't expecting her choices to have such dire consequences.

Do you believe in love at first sight? But can one trust someone blindly? Can love overcome all the obstacles?

Is friendship just the beginning of love?
