Blog Tour: Gabriel by @Styclar {Review & Giveaway}

Gabriel (The Styclar Saga #2)

by Nikki Kelly

Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Release Date: October 27th 2015


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.

Lailah is badass. There's really no other way you can describe her. She absolutely blew my mind in this book. Maybe not at first but man, by the three quarters mark, she was fierce. This is not someone you want on your bad side; trust me.
I came in to this book absolutely on team Gabriel. I left this book firmly on team Jonah. It's not that I don't like Gabriel because I do but there's just something missing with him, when it comes to Lailah.  It's sad because I was really rooting for him. But he was a creep in this book. Especially for the first quarter of the book. I mean, he reminded me of Edward Cullen from Twilight and that's not a good sing (hello, Team Jacob here). Overprotective. Way overprotective. Gabe, my man, you were really starting to creep me out. Don't worry - he took a chill pill and relaxed some. But gone is the Gabriel from the first book. 
But gone are all the characters from the first book. They've all grown up, matured and gotten fiercer (is that even a word? It is now). 
Jonah. You were dark, mysterious and sexy in the first book but I'm not a sucker for the 'bad boys'. I'm a sucker for the good guys, boy next doors, boys you can bring home to mama - those types. So please, don't take any offense to me boarding the Jonah express a little late. You weren't my cup of tea. But man, were you everything I wanted in this book. Even when Gabe was creeping me out I was still unsure about you. It took quite a bit of convincing but by midway through, you had me - hook line and sinker. You broke my heart in this book, though. And I'm pretty sure you know when.
The story gets darker, more dangerous and more risky, as all things do. Lailah has a pretty epic moment with someone from the first book. One that is very deserving and one I had to try my hardest to not to whoop aloud for. 
If you loved Lailah, there is no reason you won't love this book. If you loved Gabriel, like me, there's no reason you won't love this book and there's no reason you won't still love him (I still do). If you loved Jonah, well - brace yourselves. He's dreamy.
Thank you so much to Macmillan for allowing me the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to FFBC for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour.

I was born and raised only minutes away from the chocolately scent of Cadbury World in Birmingham, England. So it will probably come as no surprise that when I'm not dreaming in Vampires & Angels, I dream in chocolate! For the past ten years I have lived in West London with my hubby and two dogs, Alfie - the Pug & Goose - the 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.
