Review of Angels Dawn

Angels Dawn (The Dawn Trilogy Book 1)

Komali da Silva

CHBB Publishing

YA/ Paranormal Romance


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?


My world is upside down! I really expected Angels Dawn to follow the time tested YA recipe. Clueless teen girl with no clue, evil villain, and handsome hero saves girl while girl discovers her own strength. Nope. I thought for sure that Dawn’s parents were bound to die and leave her transported into a supernatural new life. Nope.  It deals with so much more, real issues in the lives of young people.  The paranormal element is an undertone to the exquisite drama unfolding as Dawn tries to navigate true love, false love, friendships changing and discovering her new identity after a harrowing experience alters her life forever.  I can’t recommend this strongly enough for everyone but especially teens.
