Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore

About the Book
Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee.
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 an 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 begin.
A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.

My Thoughts
I had mixed feelings about this book. As it started out I was kinda confused and rather ehh about finishing it, the story did seem to get a little better as I got farther but I still wasn't the hugest fan of the book as I reached the end. For me the plot wasn't that well done and was rather corny at parts. I've been a Christian for as long as I can remember and something about the way everything was portrayed just seemed a little off. Now none of this is to bash the author, the writing style was really good it was just the plot that turned me off a bit.

About the Author
Shannon Dittemore has an overactive imagination and a passion for truth. Her lifelong journey to combine the two is responsible for a stint at Portland Bible College, performances with local theater companies, and a focus on youth and young adult ministry. The daughter of one preacher and the wife of another, she spends her days imagining things unseen and chasing her two children around their home in Northern California. Angel Eyes is her first novel.
