Review: Angels Dawn (Dawn Trilogy #1) by Komali da Silva

Dawn is a normal girl with ordinary dreams; her sweet sixteen birthday is coming up and all she want is… well, what any sixteen girl want ;-)

As it is…. Her birthday party turns out to be very different than what she expected it to be. Not only does Dawn witness a crime, but without thought she stands up against the bad guys, only to find herself on the receiving end of their treatment instead.

Fate have other plans however and somehow Dawn is saved before it turns to worse, but she has no memory of that night. She has a suspicion that the new boy in school, Angelo, might had a finger in it, but no proof.
Before Dawn knows it, she is falling for Angelo, but will his secret drive her away, or make their connection stronger?

There are many wonderful things about Angels Dawn; friendship, love, paranormal elements, hurt, suspense.. I could go on. The plot is good, there are surprises in there that you didn’t see coming. Yes, the main plot is used a lot in all kinds of books, but yet Komali manages to add to it so you don’t get stuck in it.

I have to say though that there are some things that gets too repetitive in Angels Dawn, and it frustrated me. It also felt to me like Komali was struggling to find the right path, the right voice in the story, but once she truly found it… omg… Freaking amazing. The characters come alive, becomes a part of you and when the book ends you want to hurl it into the nearest wall because it just can’t end there. No way in hell.

So… If you love YA, true love, Paranormal creatures – you definitely should try out Angels Dawn. I know I don’t regret it.

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?
