I received this book from the author for an honest review. I had high hopes for this book, and decided to take a chance on it, but it just wasn't for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Blissany is the main girl and she has been having dreams with an angel named Gabriel that keeps trying to get her to commit to fighting a war. Blissany of course doesn't believe it and just wants Gabriel to have "dream sex" because she is sure it is all strange dreams with a hottie. And then there is Dom. He is the other one that they need to fight this war. He seems a little more cooperative but still isn't sure what he has gotten himself into.
This book was really strange to me and I had a hard time getting past it. Especially since Gabriel has Blissany doing all her fighting in a sleepwalking state, since he couldn't get her to agree to fight the war. Blissany thinks she is dreaming still, except that she wakes up with dirty feet. The whole story was full of sexual innuendoes and everyone wanting to get some.
If you enjoy books with lots of fantasy, dreams, angels, wars and everyone thinking about sex then this book is for you.

Action packed barely begins to describe this book. I was a bit overwhelmed at first, trying to follow the ups and downs of the story. College life mixed in with a few otherworldly beings. Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael...hmmm I believe I've heard those names somewhere before.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The main characters are wonderfully engaging people. I was able to easily identify with several of them. It's interesting attempting to keep straight the unusual names these people have. Blissany, Demi, Don and Wanikiya...Each adds something extraordinary to this story.
A war is about to happen. A heavenly war between the higher and lower realms. (We on Earth are middle realm dwellers). The demonic lower realm creatures have to do battle with humans and the college students are the chosen ones.
We are able to read from multiple POV's. I enjoyed watching these individuals grow and embark upon their destinies.
This is an unusual and interesting book. Law Reigns did a wonderful job presenting this unique story.

Even though I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars I still have mixed feelings for this book. I was really annoyed with the main character for the great part of the book. What saved the book is the how different it is, also the last quarter of the book was very good. The whole love triangle is annoying, however it keeps you reading because you really want to see what is going to happen.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Another problem I have is that the story does not feel finished. I am hoping that there will be another book to tie all the loose ends and if there is, I will be waiting to read it.

suffers from narcolepsy, which means she can sleep anywhere at any time.
It causes her lots of problems, as she frequently misses classes and
other events. When she is sleeping, she is often vividly dreaming.
Gabriel and the others use these dreams to their advantage, trying to
convince her that she needs to come save them. The reader, just like
Blissany, is often confused about what is real and what is actually in
the dream. You have to pay close attention to what is going on: digest
the names and faces and try to put together all of the pieces. When
Blissany is fully awake, you start to get to know her more as a person.
She is very self-conscious and has lived most of her life under her
"best friend" Demi's shadow. She aches to find the right man
and to live happily ever after. The other college students have pretty
normal desires, as well, such as getting laid and making it through
classes. They have to fight demons. They bleed orange and blue for their
Gators. Wait, what? The battle rages on, both internally for Blissany
as she tries to come to terms with her calling, as well as in their
world. Read it to see how all of that unfolds. Rest assured, a second
volume is in the works. I received a complimentary ebook in exchange
for my honest review, which also appears on Andi's Young Adult Books.

get more excited into reading the book. However, I was disappointed in
realizing they almost have nothing to do with the book. It portrayed it
in a completely different way than I had expected- not necessarily in a
bad way, but still it was a bit misleading. The book revolves around
our world and how it's about to embark on a war due to one of the higher
powers being rejected and wanting revenge. They had warriors created
with specific powers, prepared enough for such a war. The problem of the
matter was, the warriors aren't as supportive of the war and their role
in it as the higher powers had expected. Don, believes in what he's
told, yet he has mixed feelings about being involved in the whole thing.
Blissany on the other hand refuses to take part in the war in real life.
So Gabriel tries to convince her in her dream world, yet when she still
refuses, Gabriel erases her memories and decides to let her fight whilst
sleepwalking, which is one of the reasons why Don has reservations with
the whole thing. All Blissany has ever hoped for was a guy being
interested enough with her to want to date her, not a war and magic and
weird creatures. So when Don approaches her at a party, she's excited
for a few seconds before her psycho roommate comes over and captures his
attention. Things go up and down, visitors come from different worlds,
there's art galleries and fraternity parties, and a whole lot of
jealousy in the mix. This story reminded me a bit of Dream Walkers and
Dream Slayers (books I had reviewed a few weeks ago) but it was quite
different at the same time. I know how this one is basing a new light on
religious aspects like the higher powers and how one of them was
rejected for disobeying the rules...etc. But I still liked this new
dystopian world, with a surprise in the addition of vampires in the mix.
Frankly this was not the book I had expected it to turn out to be at
all, but I still enjoyed it very much! I also really liked the names
Blissany and Wanikiya. The whole drama and love mess kept me on edge I
had absolutely no idea how it was going to end up, so that was rather
great. Anyhow an interesting read! Rating: 3.5/5

much starts a couple of pages in and doesn't let up. What Reigns has
written is an intriguing and original take on the Angel myth, mixed in
with the reality of life, and the adventures of college. Blissany
unbeknown to her is The Key, she and Don another college student who is
the Paladin are to be the saviours of mankind from a war amongst the
Angels, and the High and Low courts. Blissany's friend Wankiya is the
Redeemer the King of the Low courts, he has been in love with Blissany
for quite a while now, but she is interested in Don and so is her
best-friend Demi. We also have the Angels, Gabriel, Michael, Uriel and
Raphael involved. I liked the POVs of the different characters you could
understand why they are the way they are and also their state of mind.
This at times was such a dark read but it had it's light moments as well
which balanced it out. If you like to read stories about the battles
between good and evil, and like Angel themed books then this is the one
for you. This is a great addition to the New Adult genre.I give this 3.5/5.

dark, gritty, complex and fascinating from page one until the very end.
I was so enthralled with this book I kept on turning the pages until the
wee hours of the morning. This story has an entirely different outtake
on what it means to be a superhero, the Angel lore, and the ancient
battle of good vs. evil. I was more than a little amazed, and definitely
enjoyed this book. The main character, Blissany, is a delight to read
about. Her thoughts range from focused to all over the place, which
happens to a lot of young adults/new adults. Since I’m a college student
myself, I loved the scenes at college, the roommates, classes, lunch,
etc. Then, with the addition of the supernatural, things just turned one
thousand times more interesting. What I found also very intriguing about
this book is that it doesn’t offer the main character as the sole
fighter or supernatural creature in this world, some sort of “chosen
one” but instead focuses on Blissany and her friends, working together
as a team to defeat the evil of this world. This is one of the first
books featuring supernatural teams I’ve read, as opposed to singular
heroes, and it works really well. Although Superheroes Wear Faded Denim
also features multiple POVs, I had no trouble keeping up with them. My
only pet peeve with this book was how difficult the main characters’
names are. The name I had especially problems with was Wanikiya. I still
don’t know how to properly pronounce it. And while I can take one or two
‘special’ names that one was just a bit too special for my tastes.
Superheroes Wear Faded Denim is different, special and original. The
plot is forever evolving, with twists around every corner. The narrative
is concise, the writing decent. I recommend this book to all fans of the
New Adult genre, and fantasy in general. If you’d like to see an
original take on Angels, try this one out as well.

This book is very surrealistic. It requires an ability to put aside the “normal” view of the world and accept the world of the book to fully grasp the concepts and ideas of the book. It would drive my husband crazy, but I enjoyed it for the most part. At times I was lost and confused, but those were rare.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The plot was so intense, dark, and gritty with hints of humor, romance and a fabulous subplot to boot. The characters were unique yet very believable and realistic. The characters evolve from “normal” to superhero and try to do the right thing. It was interesting to watch the dynamics unfold.
While not my usual fare, this book was definitely worth reading. I enjoyed the author taking on issues not generally dealt with in literature. I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.

This was a very creative and well written story. The story itself deals with regular college life: roommates, classes, and social stuff; then there's the fantasy side, dealing with a war, saving mankind, and uncertain what to do when dreams actually become reality. The story along with the characters was very entertaining. We read from different POVs, including Blissany's, so we see this story from all sorts of sides. This was a good novel that had suspense, jealousy, romance, and destiny. It is definitely one that should not be missed, and I encourage you read it! :)Was this review helpful?
