What if the Bible has it all wrong about the Anti-Christ?

What if this person is female and what if she actually has a choice?

Meet A.C. a.k.a Angelica Cunningham

Angelica is drop dead gorgeous, lives in a sprawling mansion with her two aunts, attends a prestigious private school, is an A student and excels at everything she does effortlessly. She has a great life.

That's until her 16th birthday and it all goes banana's. One of her aunt's fall mysteriously ill on the brink of death. Angelica is suddenly telepathic, has a heightened sense of smell and is seeing supernatural beings, that only exists in fairy tales.

Angelica's family is forced to tell her the truth. Her aunts are actually supernatural beings that have been charged with protecting Angelica from her father, Lucifer. He has put a bounty on Angelica's head and every creature from the Abyssal Realm a.k.a Hell is looking for her. In addition she has a hot guardian angel that has been assigned to her since birth that she can now see.

She is suddenly thrust into a dangerous, magical world. Between dealing with her new identity, a love triangle, hiding from her father, and just trying to be a teenager she has to make a decision to run, fight or wait for the darkness to consume her.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

The way that Waiting for the Beast started was unlike any other book I had ever read. Instead of getting thrown into Angelica's story, I was slowly eased into it. Books don't typically do this. Instead of being left guessing, I was given the relevant information at the beginning. This allowed me to focus on where the book was going, and more importantly what was in store for Angelica's future. I wasn't constantly wondering what/who Angelica was, instead I already knew.

I did appreciate how I was eased into the story, but at the same time I found myself getting a little bored. I was ready to meet Angelica and get started on the action! Once the action did start, I found that I really enjoyed reading the book. The storyline and world that Hayden had weaved fascinated me!

I'm excited for the rest of the series, and am really hoping that the author takes some risks with Angelica's romantic affairs, just like she did with the concept of this book! I know Michael is the definition of perfect, but that has been done time and time again. I am much more intrigued by Roman. I have a feeling that there is much more to him than meets the eye. What can I say, I have a soft spot for the bad boys!
