Abigail Cells had a nightmare the day before she met Gideon, the new guy in school who has every girl drooling just to be near him. In her nightmare, she was murdered by a magical creature. As she gets to know Gideon, she begins to remember pieces of her nightmare, and was shocked when Gideon turned out to be the creature from her nightmare. Who is Gideon really? Should Abby allow herself to fall completely for him, or is he the next disaster waiting to happen?

Excerpt:

Excerpt
“I’m going to divide you into groups for our Titanic memorabilia speech, which if you all remember, is this week.” Mr. Bernard said. “Speeches are due before the week is over.”

One of the students murmured, “Oh, no.”

“Mr. Silas, you and Miss Cells will be group one,” Mr. Bernard said, looking at Tristan and me. “Miss Tate, you and Mr. Duran are—” Mr. Bernard was interrupted by the sound of the door as it busted open. Everyone looked toward the noise.

Standing in the doorway was the guy I bumped into. The moment I saw him, my heart dropped. I prayed he was lost and wasn’t in our class. Frankly, I didn’t understand my uneasiness upon seeing him. He gave me bad vibes.

“You must be Mr. Chase,” Mr. Bernard said, and the boy walked toward him.

“I am,” he answered. He looked around the classroom, and his gaze stopped on Tristan.

To my surprise, Tristan looked like he knew the boy because he gave him a half-hearted smile.
“You’re late,” Mr. Bernard said, and the boy looked at the clock on the wall.

“I was actually here before the bell rang.” His eyes moved to mine. “Miss Cells can vouch for me.” I froze at the mention of my name. I wondered how he knew my name, but then I remembered I was known pretty much everywhere—the price of being famous. “She bumped into me and ran off.”
Someone please shoot me now. A few people chuckled. Jake cast a backward glance at me and grinned.

“You’re excused this time, Mr. Chase. Find a seat. I’ll assign you to a group.”

“Mr. Chase can join Jake and me,” Danny volunteered. I wasn’t surprised.

“It’s Gideon,” the boy said. “Gideon Chase.”

“What?” I blurted out in surprise at the mention of his name, and then all eyes turned to me.

Gideon? His name was actually Gideon? Why Gideon?

“Miss Cells, are you all right?” My outburst had obviously startled Mr. Bernard. Gideon stood beside him, confused, but the moment his eyes met mine, he smiled as if he knew why I was scared.

“I—I’m sorry, I didn’t—” I looked down in humiliation.

Maybe it was just a coincidence. This guy couldn’t be the same Gideon from my nightmare.

“Well,” Mr. Bernard continued, “take a seat, Mr. Chase.”

My first impression of Gideon was that he was hot.

My second impression of him was dangerous.

My third impression of him was murderer, because if he was anything like the guy from my nightmare, he was going to kill me.


Review:

Two races of angels and demons are expected to work with one another as guardian angels.   Abigail Cells  finds herself torn between two Gideon and Tristan, both have different qualities that Abigail finds enticing.  Which path will Abigail follow?

What you think will happen in Dominion is far different with what does.  This story has as many twists and turns as a roller coaster.  You vacillate between who you want Abigail with the choice is not rigidly clear, as each turn of the page has you more pulled in to this terrific story.  I thought this was an excellent story of a new series and felt the story of these angels was refreshingly new.  Excellent read.
