Getting the flu for her seventeenth birthday wasn't exactly the gift Jenna Morgan was hoping for. It means no party, no friends, and no fun. But when she recovers, Jenna feels better than well, she feels changed. And when her mom takes her to the local flea market, something they both love, it's almost enough to make Jenna forget the haunting dreams she's been having of two faceless boys on a distant beach, each one beckoning her to come with him.
Then, a strange man at the market gifts Jenna a pendant, and her mom freaks out. She drags Jenna home and suddenly announces they're moving to Georgia.
Jenna knows they're on the run from someone or something, but she doesn't know what. And she'll lose much more than her normal life and her senior year before she finds out why both angels and demons are hunting her.

Revelations is a fun YA novel that keeps you turning the pages. Pamela Daniell creates her own unique spin on Angels and Demons that really freshens up the genre. Her characters of Jenna, Alex and Dylan are well developed and the twists and turns will keep you intrigued. Although there is a small romance theme I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the main focus of the story. Whilst I love romance, every now and then it is nice to read a YA novel where this is not the dominant theme. Instead, the exploration of good and evil (as you would expect from Angels and Demons) takes centre stage. Watching Jenna find her true identity and come to terms with and develop her abilities takes centre stage, as does the choices she has to make on her journey. The author explores the weakness of human nature, Jenna's inherent need to do good and the strays from that path that she takes at moments of weakness. Although this book is obviously the first in a set/series you do get a satisfying conclusion at the end of book one while being left eagerly waiting for more.
