INCEPTION by TEAL HAVILAND
The world is in danger. Mankind is sinking deeper into darkness it cannot understand
Demons are easily capturing souls as they lead men and women down dangerous paths from which there is no return, while Javan, one of the Fallen, seeks an ancient book and the power it promises. If he succeeds, humans — and the world as they know it — will be destroyed.
There is someone who is capable of stopping Javan...
If she discovers him in time.
Gabrielle is one of the most powerful angels ever created, her job one of the most important. She has come to Earth to learn more about humans and what influences them, and to fight evil she sees growing at an alarming rate. She soon finds herself carelessly distracted with one human in particular, however. Lucas Watkins holds a promise of peace and love for Gabrielle that she never believed she could have again.
Caught between her new mortal ties and ancient immortal responsibilities, Gabrielle must race against what seems to be an ever-quickening clock to learn what she needs to know, uncover Javan’s plan, and find a way to stop him and all who live in Shadows.
Join Gabrielle and her allies in a story of love — past and present — fantastical beings, hidden realms, magic, fate, loss, and the fight of good versus evil in, The Reaping Chronicles.
Alright so any fans of angels and demons do you like shapeshifters, vampires, and other fantastical creatures? If you said yes to any or all of those then pick up a copy of INCEPTION. This book is a whirlwind of questions and confessions, swoons and heart breaks, and rhymes and riddles.
Gabrielle is the Angel of Karma: sounds pretty cool right?well let's just say the job has it perks. Those perks include some kick-butt powers and abilities and a pretty unusual job description. Gabrielle is the type of girl I could really get used to having as a friend. She is smart, funny, loyal, and a great accountability partner ;).
Lucas, Lucas, Lucas; what to say about Lucas? He is a little complicated, and maybe bi-polar. He could be all happy go lucky one second and then all doom and gloom the next. He can be kind of hard to read but I still enjoyed him. I won’t say too much so I don’t ruin any surprises for you, though i think you’ll figure it out on your lonesome :).
The book is really intriguing, it gets a little repetitive but the things that are repeated are important to remember so I can see the need. The book has a very complex plot with many different characters that are important to the story. The chapters flip flop between different POV’s that include Gabrielle, Javan, and Lucas, among others. This book is a nice length and takes a few days of intense reading to finish, it been awhile since I have come across a nice and long book ;). The book has quite a few steamy scenes and while more-than-kissing actions are suggested or implied that’s all they are. This book stays within it’s YA rating and the boundaries aren't really pushed thankfully. There is a good bit * read a lot * of forbidden love just to warn you. This is a good read with a heckuva cliffhanger, I recommend it to anyone looking for a mystery of fantastical origins with just enough romance.
