The Fallen: Volume One by Thomas E. Sniegoski

On his eighteenth birthday, Aaron begins to hear strange voices and is convinced he is going insane. But having moved from foster home to foster home, Aaron doesn't know whom he can trust. He wants to confide in the cute girl from class, but fears she'll confirm he's crazy.
Then a mysterious man begins following Aaron. He knows about Aaron's troubled past and his new powers. And he has a message for Aaron: As the son of a mortal and an angel, Aaron has been chosen to redeem the Fallen.
Aaron tries to dismiss the news and resists his supernatural abilities. But he must accept his new found heritage — and quickly. For the dark powers are gaining strength, and are hell-bent on destroying him....

Sniegoski writes a book that starts quickly and draws you in from the beginning.  In the middle the book dragged slightly, but overall kept me entertained.  It is another paranormal YA book which has caught my attention.  I have been drawn to YA novels lately, but they all seem to have the content I am looking for and the fast pace that I enjoy.  Aaron is an interesting character, although at times he is annoying.  I felt for his dog Gabriel because I always tend to have more emotion when it comes to animals in books.  An animal can't necessarily defend itself so I tend to feel more connected and worried about the animals safety.

Anyway, if you are looking for an entertaining read that will leave you waiting to read the next book in the series, I recommend it.  If you are not interested in reading a YA novel about paranormal activities then this is not the book for you.
