Supernatural boundaries will be crossed as Angel of Death, Nathaniel Evans, risks his eternal soul to save the one he loves, the paranormally gifted and nature-loving, Juliana Crowson.Thoughts on Angel Dreams: Falling back into Nathaniel and Juliana's world was fun. After the twist thrown at him in book 1, Nathaniel has been given a new assignment and it's a doozy. Juliana being Juliana, she's compelled to help him when she realizes his charge is someone who once asked her for help.
While working with a new client, Nathaniel finds out that pissing off a demon-wielding warlock in order to help a suicidal teen with misplaced sexual tendencies may be the last thing he ever does as an angel. Unable to stand aside, Juliana’s involvement in Nathaniel’s new case quickly develops into a misadventure with gun-toting bikers, table dancing, and a shamanic exorcism performed by her temperamental Native American friend, Chris Abeyta.
Can Nathaniel and Juliana’s love endure blood-letting rituals in the forest while helping a terrified teen find the will to live, or will fate and the rules of the afterlife tear them eternally apart?
And that's when things get complicated.
I like the budding relationship between Nathaniel and Juliana. I think his straightforward honesty confuses Juliana sometimes because she doesn't quite know how to respond to someone being so open about their feelings. They both seem to be on the same page, but I totally get why Juliana needed to slow things down a bit. Nathaniel's pretty intense and that could be overwhelming in ANY situation, much less when he's admitting how much she means to him.
There's the potential for a love triangle that I'm iffy on (those aren't my favorite thing, just so you know) and I'm not sure I love how close-minded Chris is when it comes to Nathaniel and the other Angels. On the other hand, seeing as Chris has some preconceived notions about what Nathaniel is, I can also understand why he's continually warning her off. (To be fair, even Nathaniel's not sure if his presence is harming Juliana in some way, so Chris's warnings might be on target.)
With plenty of danger, some terrifying moments with a demon or two, and the sweet, sometimes sad romance between Nathaniel and Juliana, this book hit the spot.
