Synopsis:
“I’m mesmerized by her fire, even if it is I who burns in it”
Small town girl Zara is a bookworm and a student who aces every exam. She is unaware of the fact that she is an Oneiro, one to occur in centuries. She can see the dreams of both angels and demons, know their deepest desires and greatest fears. But, this blessing is a curse in disguise.
Unbeknownst to her, this ability has put her in the middle of a war between heaven and hell. She is the key to find the most powerful celestial weapon ever. Heaven and hell have sent their best soldiers after her. On one hand, there is Ryan Jackson- the blue-eyed devil whose smile is enough to make her go week in the knees, and on the other, there is Jake Turner- the charming angel who is just what she needs.
Before she knows, her life gets entangled in a complicated web of deceit, hurt, and love.
What will she do when she learns about her power? What will she do when they break her heart and her will? How will a mere mortal stand against the might of heaven and wrath of hell?
Excerpt:
Ryan chuckled, “Then why are you opening up your secrets in front of the so-called bad boy?”
When pleading and tears won’t help her she turned frustrated and vented out all her anger on him, “V was right. You don’t care about me. I bet, you didn’t even remember me for a second these past months. And here, despite her multiple warnings, I somehow felt you were different. I was a fool to think of you, to wait for you, to love-”
Ryan’s eyes darkened at the unspoken words. She was taken by surprise when he walked up to her and lifted her in his arms. She hadn’t known what fire she had kindled by letting the unspoken words tear at him.
“What did you just say?”
Zara’s face turned beet red and she tried to push him away but he didn’t budge. The effort to keep his hands firmly planted on the table was visible on his face. “Complete your earlier sentence, Z”
She faked an exasperated breath and completed her line, “I was a fool to think of you, to wait for you, to…to love this stupid dress.”
Despite her anger and despite the harsh words, he smiled. 
Not just smiled but chuckled and broke into his pearly white smile that formed a dimple on his cheek. Zara sucked in a breath at seeing him smile and laugh- his smile that had the magical ability to take away all the pain from her body and heart.
He asked breathlessly, “Is that what you were going to say?”

Review(s)

akkidia_4592: This book is a nice combination of fantasy and romance. The author takes time to build up the story but it as you read further you find clues and links to things you may have missed earlier. It’s a clever tactic of making readers go back and think “Wait, is this why x had said that?” or “Oh, now I know l, what actually happened in that scene.”
Brilliant. A must read for all who love this genre and even for those who shy away from the same. Keep it up.

NightWind: It’s a wonderful story! 
The writing is not the usual, riddled-with-grammar-issues stories that can be found everywhere on this site. This feels like professional writing and it’s really easy to tell the difference. 
Most importantly, the story feels easy to read, and the author is excellent at setting up atmospheres and creating characters that act like real, relatable people. 
At the same time, the subject, loosely paranormal romance, lends these likeable characters a certain air of mystery, which creates a sense of suspense regarding the development of the plot. 
Follow along to this one! I recommend read!! 😀

TaintedMetal: While I don’t read fantasy romance on a daily basis, I’m giving this novel a shot based on the execution of its ideas. It’s good. There’s an interesting hook of a opening, which matches its synopsis. Writing wise, there’s no rush or signs of an exposition dump. Everything goes according to a certain pace. We get a good look at our main character Zara and how her life goes so far since Chapter 2. My only real criticism is the build up to the synopsis. Ever since chapter 3 the story has become like a more contemporary romance as opposed to a fantasy romance, because the actual fantasy I saw was in chapter 1. In short, readers may need to be patient before they get to the fantastical elements in the story. But for avid readers of romance in general, this build up may be necessary and fine for them. The author is doing a fantastic job at writing the story itself. I hope to see more of the fantasy elements this book has, because I do believe it’s there and perhaps this novel might be even stronger than most fantasy romances (which from my experience, has too much focus on the romance elements).
