The girl knows she’s different. She doesn’t age. She has no family. She has visions of a past life, but no clear clues as to what she is, or where she comes from. But there is a face in her dreams – a light that breaks through the darkness. She knows his name is Gabriel.
On her way home from work, the girl encounters an injured stranger whose name is Jonah. Soon, she will understand that Jonah belongs to a generation of Vampires that serve even darker forces. Jonah and the few like him, are fighting with help from an unlikely Allie – a rogue Angel, named Gabriel.
In the crossfire between good and evil, love and hate, and life and death, the girl learns her name: Lailah. But when the lines between black and white begin to blur, where in the spectrum will she find her place? And with whom?
Gabriel and Jonah both want to protect her. But Lailah will have to fight her own battle to find out who she truly is
Lailah by Nikki Kelly
Lailah left me with a series book hangover! I was utter blown away and am still reeling days later.
Angels and Demons, good and evil and that entire wonderful gray in between, Kelly created a marvelously dark, gritty and extremely vivid story about a girl named Cessie. It is like nothing I’ve ever read before. I became enraptured in Kelly’s story telling immediately and left still wanting more. Amazing world building! Kelly has masterfully written an action packed, emotional jarring story that will have you still pondering days later. This book is definitely a Favorite Read and worth a re-read!
I received this ARC copy of Lailah from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group - Feiwel & Friends in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 7, 2014.
