I Dare You.
Look Over Your Shoulders.
Do You See Them?
They are behind you...
They are always behind you.

Abigail Cells had a nightmare the day beforeshe 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?

Dominion is 44 long chapters, although the book has only 258 pages. I took it upon myself to write quotes at the beginning of each chapter, a quote that summons the things that happens in the chapter. Each one of them includes a spoiler to the chapters, so below I want to share with you all three of those quotes and the chapter titles.

Chapter 12: Hell on Wheels
“Give them hell, give them heaven,
and all they’ll do is forget when you’re gone. Give them mercy, give them grace,
 and they’ll only pray, when all hope is gone.”

This quote is from the Dominion theme song, which you can listen to here.
The song itself contains major spoilers to the whole book, so be sure to listen to it more than once or twice.

Chapter 19: Shadow Boxing

“If this is my punishment for hurting them, then what’s yours for hurting me back? Answer me, Karma!”

This chapter is told from Gideon Chase’ (Angel with dark wings on cover) POV. The whole book is told from Gideon and Abigail Cells’ POV, and this quote gives away more than enough of Gideon’s journey in Dominion.

Chapter 20: Dark Veil

“You’re fighting for your country, they said. Your will become a hero, they said. Kill all the enemies, they said.
 So I fought, killed, cried and killed again. Now that I’m haunted and empty, they tell me ‘God gave everyone free will’.”

This quote right here is told from Abigail’s POV, and it’s one of my personal favorite, it sums
up some of Abigail’s life and what she is going through.

I’d like to share more quotes with you, but I’m afraid I’ve given away more than enough.
Dominion comes out on the 16th of February, please give it chance when it comes out. For
more quotes go to my website www.melodymanful.com see you there!

Wow this book cover looks flawless almost cartoonish but in a not so child like way.
I do like that this book is YA Fantasy. Can't wait to read it.
