Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore- Book Review/Blog Tour

Summary of Angel Eyes-

Once you've seen, you can't unsee. Everything changes when you've seen the world through...
Angel Eyes

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

Jake's the new guy at school. The boy next door with the 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 Jake or Brielle have 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.

About the Author-

Shannon is a wife and mother. A sister. A daughter. A friend. She was raised in Northern California by her parents-pastors of their local church and constant figures of inspiration.

As a youth, Shannon traveled with an award-winning performing arts team, excelling on stage and in the classroom. As a young adult, she attended Portland Bible College, continued acting, and worked with an outreach team targeting inner-city kids in the Portland-Metropolitan area.

It was in Portland that she met her husband, Matt. They were married in 2002. Soon after, they took the reigns of the youth ministry at Living Way Community Church in Roseville, California where they continue to serve in that capacity. In 2004, their son, Justus was born, followed by their daughter Jazlyn, born in 2008.

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved Angel Eyes. It is a book in the Young Adult genre, which I particularly enjoy and seems to be very popular with many readers at the moment. (Think The Hunger Games or Twilight but with a message of faith) I was very relieved to see a book about the super natural that WAS NOT about vampires...or werewolves. This book is about angels and demons, about good and evil. I really enjoyed getting to know both Jake and Brielle in this story. I love Dittemore's writing style, she had me turning page after page to see what would happen next, I just couldn't put this book down. I quite enjoyed the other "realm" where Jake and Brielle discover that they both have different gifts and that realm also changes how they see the world and the people in it. I loved the action packed ending. Angel Eyes was full of action, suspense and just the right amount of romance.

This is a debut novel, one of the best I have read in a while. I am so excited that this is the first in a trilogy. I can not wait to read the next two! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys, Christian fiction, paranormal fiction, romance or the YA genre.
