Blog Tour! A Book Review of Broken Wings by Shannon Dittemore!

Genre: (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance/Christian Fiction)
Date Published: February 19, 2013
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson Fiction

The Blurb:
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?

My Review:
Broken Wings is the second book in the Angel Eyes Trilogy by Shannon Dittemore. If you haven't read Angel Eyes yet, I highly recommend it! And check out my Angel Eyes review while you're at it. This trilogy has definitely made it to my favorites! This is closer to how I imagine angels and demons to be then most of the angel related books I have read, and for me that makes it more believable and enjoyable. Jake and Brielle's relationship is growing. Though they had that instant attraction in book one, their relationship hasn't gone straight to lusty lip locks and make out sessions. They definitely have their ups and downs through the story, but what relationship doesn't? You are given so much more information in this book, and things are starting to piece together. at the same time, there is still a lot I have yet to learn. Broken Wings kept me wanting more! It's going to be super hard to wait for book three, Dark Halo!

  1. I read a galley of Angel Eyes last year and really enjoyed it. It was different, and not preachy. I fell hard for Jake - who didn't? I'm really glad you liked the sequel! I kept meaning to request a galley, and forgot. I was worried that Jake and Brielle would go in a bad direction, so it's great that they didn't!

    Just an FYI - my blog has moved, and I'm trying to get the word out. New link is below. :)
