Welcome to my stop on the Broken Wings blog tour hosted by YA Bound. Click HERE to see the full blog tour schedule!

Angel Eyes (Angel Eyes Trilogy #1)
by Shannon Dittemore
Release Date: May 29, 2012
336 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee. Everything changes when you’ve looked at the world through . . .


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.

Broken Wings (Angel Eyes Trilogy #2)
By Shannon Dittemore
Release Date: February 19, 2013
320 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
Giant angels with metal wings and visible song. A blind demon restored from the pit of darkness. And a girl who has never felt more broken.

Brielle sees the world as it really is: a place where the Celestial exists side by side with human reality. But in the aftermath of a supernatural showdown, her life begins to crumble. Her boyfriend, Jake, is keeping something from her—something important. Her overprotective father has started drinking again. He’s dating a much younger woman who makes Brielle’s skin crawl, and he’s downright hostile toward Jake. Haunting nightmares keep Brielle from sleeping, and flashes of Celestial vision keep her off kilter.

What she doesn’t know is that she’s been targeted. The Prince of Darkness himself has heard of the boy with healing in his hands and of the girl who sees through the Terrestrial Veil. When he plucks the blind demon, Damien, from the fiery chasm and sends him back to Earth with new eyes, the stage is set for a cataclysmic battle of good versus evil.

Then Brielle unearths the truth about her mother’s death and she must question everything she ever thought was true.

Brielle has no choice. She knows evil forces are converging and will soon rain their terror down upon the town of Stratus. She must master the weapons she’s been given. She must fight.

But can she fly with broken wings?

First off, I love the fact that this book, this series, is so pure. There is no adult language or content, nothing to really be concerned about as far as inappropriate material. AND it's such a fabulous read that keeps your attention and has you debating over whether you really need to get sleep tonight because you just want to keep on reading! I actually have no problem with adult material and vulgar language; however, it is refreshing to read such an intense story that has such a deeply spiritual root.

While Angel Eyes had it's share of dark material, in Broken Wings poor Brielle is struggling to hang on to her new found faith and everything and everyone that means so much to her. It's really a struggle that many of us deal with everyday, although maybe not quite to the extent that Brielle does. The bottom line, faith is hard. And keeping it through the most difficult times in our lives, and trusting that God has everything planned out and that he is listening, is even harder.  While Brielle finds the truth behind some very important secrets, she also struggles with accepting the betrayals of those she loves the most.

This is an excellent read for young adults and adults alike that will keep your attention and have you dying to know what's going to happen next. It's a clean read with a great message and you won't be disappointed.
