Book Review: Angel Eyes


By Shannon Dittemore

Description: Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee.

Brielle went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and an incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake.

Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices begin.

A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.

My Thoughts: “Angel Eyes” is the first novel in a new series Shannon Dittermore and I can already tell you I will to read the next installment.This book balances both romance and the battle of good verse evil. I personally enjoyed how the author took the fight between angels and demons to the human level, however the Christian themes may have gone a bit overboard. There's a lot of talk about fate and predetermined choices and non-believers. (think 5 pages of being preached at)  I don't mind it in a story, I read tons of Christian fiction,  but I wish the author took the time to weave it into the story more seamlessly. I'd rather be entertained than preached at.

Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
