ANGEL EYES by Shannon Dittemore || Kindle Fire Giveaway and Facebook Party

About Shannon

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.

About Book

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

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 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 Thoughts

Brielle returns home with broken dreams and a heavy heart.  Her fear and sorrow is so strong it chills her to the bone.  It seems like she will never be warm again.  She tries to avoid her friends to no avail and her father is at a loss as how to help his little girl get over her night terrors.

When she returns to school she feels as if she is being shadowed.  There is a new boy, Jake in her school and every time she turned around he was there. When he was near it was as if he radiated heat.  She not only felt warm when he was near she also felt calm and safe.  She soon discovered he was also her new next door neighbor. 

The more time Brielle spent with Jake it became clear he was gifted.  It is not just a coincidence that he sought her out he there along with others to protect her from unseen evils.

Really!  Who and what is Jake? Why does he need to protect Brielle?  What evil is it that surrounds her?

Author states."A realm that only angels and demons - and - Brielle can perceive."

This book is not the type of book I would normally read. I know my teen grandkids are going to enjoy reading this book.  I have passed many good books on to them in the past so I know there will be a debate as to who gets this book first.

I enjoyed going over the Reading Group Guide after reading the book. I would love to share more but I will let you find out for yourselves.

I highly recommend this book, especially for young adults.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson  for this Litfuse PublicityTour review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
