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.

Oh my god. This book was a doozy.
Gabriel starts off exactly where Lailah ends. The novel starts off slow, with Lailah acclimating herself to her newfound powers and the dichotomy that exists within her. However, once things started to pick up, so many things were happening and I was definitely sucked into the novels and the things that were happening to my poor, darling characters.
While I really did not like Gabriel at all in this novel, I enjoyed the way that Nikki wrote him. He is an angel, a being representative of light and glory and everything that is good. However, the way he is portrayed in this novel shows him as fallible and capable of bad choices. Gawd. The entire time I was reading the novel, I wanted to strangle Gabriel. I get why he did the things he did, but AUGHH. *mentally strangles Gabriel*
I love the development Lailah takes on in this novel, compared to the first one. She definitely managed to internally voice a lot of my internal thoughts in the novel. She also has a lot more conviction in her opinions in this novel, which I particularly like, even if I don't agree with it.
Jonah! My poor baby Jonah! I didn't get to see as much of him as I would have liked to in this novel, but it really just kind of made me like him more than I already did from the first novel. I really just wanted to give him a hug and never let him go. My poor baby.
There were a lot of super pretty moments in this novel with the way they were written and I just love the way Nikki describes things in such detail and with pretty words in a way that I can imagine them in my head.
Gabriel is a fantastic sequel to the first novel, Lailah, and I seriously can't wait to read the last novel, because that ending. . . . . and also I need more Jonah in my life.
