Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore Litfuse Blog Tour & Nook Giveaway!

From Amazon - Brielle's a ballerina who 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 the 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 start. A realm that only angels and demons-and Brielle-can perceive.

When I first got my book of Angel Eyes, it took me a bit to pick it up.  Angels have been done to death lately in the young adult genre, and I wasn't sure else was out there to write about.  But I was pleasantly surprised with Dittemore's debut, Angel Eyes, and the first in a new trilogy.  Yes, there is a dreadful cliffhanger - so you are forewarned.

While the story starts out slow, setting the world and giving the reader time to get to know the characters, it really picks up the pace once you find yourself involved in it. There are some religious undertones but it doesn't take away from the secrets or the romance that blossoms.  From cover to cover, I was hooked and I can't wait for the next in this series.  Definitely not your average angel book - but so much more! Highly recommend!!

  1. Good morning, Wendy! I'm so glad you enjoyed Angel Eyes. I know it takes time and a commitment to read and review books and I want you to know I appreciate it. So sorry about that cliffhanger, friend. Can't wait to share Broken Wings with you! Have you seen the cover. Thomas Nelson released it last week: http://shannondittemore.com/?p=2031


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
