Waiting for the next one...

I have been anticipating this book for months. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. It had a great plot that really drove the story. I couldn't seem to put it down. My one criticism for the book was the length. I think that it could have been a little longer (and not just because I wanted more to read). I thought that the interactions between Teagan and Garreth could have been more descriptive and I would have liked to here Garreth talk more about what it is like to be in a "human" body.

Teagan McNeel is your typical seventeen year old girl. She lives with her single mother, hangs out with her best friend Claire every weekend, and trudges her way through high school. Then the dreams start. She feels like she is being watched. She is also confused by how differently she responds to the dreams. Sometimes she is left feeling warm and comforted, while others she is cold and scared. At least they are only dreams..or are they? When they suddenly start to happen at school Teagan thinks that she is loosing her mind.

Then the fantastically gorgeous new guy Garreth Adams pops into her life. He is perfect in every way and she is shocked that he seems to have his sights set on her. What Teagan doesn't know is that Garreth is her Guardian and he is here to protect her from his enemy Hadrian. Hadrian is the (also stunningly gorgeous) dark angel plotting to enslave all Guardians and by proxy, their human charges. The conflict that Teagan has between her love for Garreth and the pull she feels toward Hadrian opens the door for an interesting sequel. Which is on its way, but once you read Angel Star I'm sure you will agree that it can't come soon enough! So If you haven't already make sure to add this to your "to-read" list.

I had really high expections for this book, and they were not met. After all the good reviews about this book, I thought it would be really good. It was not. What I found was that it was like "Twilight" (and I do not like Twilight). Teagen was an annoying character to me and just seemed to be obsessed with Garreth. She only mourned about a day (if even that) after her best friend died. Then she went back to being obsessed with Garreth. And Garreth, of course, was perfect. He had NO flaws! That also get annoying after a while. Then, like all the other new "paranormal romances" out there, Teagen also realizes that she is attracted to the "bad guy", too. Didn't see that one comin! Really? This book was so predictable and the only thing that even kept me from finishing it was the fact that I bought it. It was so like "Twilight" that Garreth even referred to Teagen "babbeling in her sleep" and while she was, she said that she loved him. Sound familiar? I do not reccomend this book at all. But maybe it's just me.

    Angel Star

    I had such high expectations for Angel Star. So much so that I refused to read any of the other twelve books I had until I got to the library and picked up Angel Star.
    I was so disappointed in the book! I thought it was going to be interesting, cool, different, but hell, it was another carbon copy of all the other 'angel' novels out there. The plot was unoriginal, and the writing screamed 'novice'.
    *Spoiler* When the main character's best friend (book was so forgettable I can't remember her name) dies, Teagan is like "She's dead. I'm sad...Moving on, my angel boyfriend is so awesome!" Ugh. I was thinking, 'How did this book get published?' like, five different times. As much as I wanted the book to improve, it seemed to drone on and on, and it wasn't even a 300 page book!
    I guess this book is perfect for those people who hate reading like, thoughts and reasons, and prefers dialog, but this isn't for me. I don't think I'll be reading the other two books in the series when they come out.
