Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore Blog Tour Stop

Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee. Everything changes when you’ve looked at the world through . . .
ANGEL EYES
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 Jake or Brielle 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. 

My Review
5 Angel Wings
Thank you to YA Bound for allowing me to be a part of this tour. I have read a lot of books about Angels and Demons but Shannon has created a world where you feel like you are right there with the characters.

Brielle is a unique character in this story. She returns home after her friend is murdered. She blames herself and feels like she could have done something to stop it from happening but little does she know things or people are lurking in the background. When she is confronted with the things that go bump in the night she is not sure how to handle things. Her life feels like it is closing in on her until she meets Jake.

Jake is a great character in this story. Jake can heal with his hands and as he and Brielle get close things start to kick off. A secret world is revealed and Brielle will have to trust Jake or walk away. What will Brielle do in the end? Will she follow her heart or will she allow the devil to sway her to his side.

This story is a breath of fresh air and it allows the reader to see both good and evil and see what the consequences are for choosing evil. Brielle will have to face some hard core facts about God and Lucifer and when she meets Lucifers child she will have to decide if she will listen to him and be swayed to his side or will she chose Jake and the Angels. Come along for an adventure that is sure to tug at your heart. Love angels this book is for you. Love demons this book is for you. Which Team will you be on....... Team Jake or Team Damien?

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 reins of the youth ministry at Living Way Community Church in Roseville, California where they continue to serve in that capacity. In October of 2004, their son Justus was born, followed by their daughter Jazlyn, born in 2008.

ANGEL EYES is Shannon’s debut novel and the launch of a young adult supernatural trilogy. It will be published in the summer of 2012 by Thomas Nelson.

“I’m a firm believer that books open doors into the imagination and remind us that we should venture there often. We should dream. We should try hard things. We should be fearless. And while there are many obstacles that stand in the way, I hope my stories remind readers that life is to be lived. Pain is to be tackled. Mountains are to be climbed. And while you may fall into dark places along the way, light is as close as the prayer on your lips.”

I adore books based around angels and demons! The supernatural is always so intriguing and seeing the different ways in which angels particularly are portrayed is always fascinating. You almost never find angels/demons that are represented in the same way, so yeah, always fun to read!

I like how angels and demons are always changed in books and it doesn't hurt the story at all.
