Angel and Bavar by Amy Wilson

Angel is an orphan who is now living with a nice couple that took her in.  When she goes to school, she meets an odd boy who hides himself from most people, but she can see him.  She thinks he might know something about the monster that killed her parents but he tries to avoid her.  She's persistent, though.

Katherine Tegen Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published now and you can grab a copy now.

This book is part fantasy, part paranormal, and part horror story all at once.  The creature that killed her parents came from another world.  Bavar fights them to keep our world safe but each battle he fights leaves its mark on him.

When Angel finds out a spell can close the rift they come through, she wants to use it.  She needs help to translate it.  Bavar doesn't want her want her to do it because it's dangerous.  But the spell is from her father's book and she knows it will work if she can do it right...

With talking portraits, his Grandfather talking through the head of a statue and more odd things about the house, it's challenge just to find her way back to the room.  In the meantime, Bavar is fighting with one of the monsters.

Will Bavar survive?  Will Angel do the spell right?

This was an interesting read with both Bavar and Angel trying to do the right thing.  If ugly monsters don't scare you, give this one a read!
