The revelations he uncovers to her about her family’s past changes everything, and as her relationship and feelings for Zander deepen, so do the risks involved.

This was surprisingly really good!
Angel’s life is great. It’s normal. She gets good grades, has nice friends, and nothing unusual really happens to her. That all changes when she meets Zander.
Suddenly, her parents are always whispering to each other and they’re trying too hard to not let her know about anything. Freaky things are happening to her. She thinks she might be going insane, but she’s not. She’s just not human. She’s an Oleah. Oleahs are creatures with a combination of human and lion features. Her parents had to protect themselves and most especially, Angel. There was a threat to all of their lives, so no matter how hard it was for them, they had to move planets and adjust. That threat would be Sindrell, satan’s sister.
I understood when Angel would get frustrated with her parents hiding things from her. She’s a teenager, I was a teenager as well. I was extremely temperamental, and things always seemed worse than they really were.
Zander was really great. I was intrigued by him. I never seemed to decide whether he was evil or not. He was mysterious. He proved himself in the end, and that’s what counts.
This book is the first one in the series, and I’m looking forward to the next book. I feel like that book would have more action and adventure.
This book was short and entertaining. I will be following the series, because the concepts are just so interesting, and I’m looking forward to how the story will develop.
