Blog Tour!! Book Review of Dark Halo 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:
Dark Halo is the third book in the Angel Eyes Trilogy by Shannon Dittemore. If you haven't read Angel Eyes or Broken Wings yet, I highly recommend them! Check out my reviews for them too! In Dark Halo, it gets a whole lot worse before it gets better. Some things could even be irreversible. There is so much detail within this trilogy, that it's hard to mention anything without giving away a spoiler. Especially if you haven't read either of the first books yet, but I will say this: I love Shannon Dittemore's portrayal of spiritual warfare, both demon vs angel and demon vs human. It's very realistic, or at least like I've said in the Broken Wings review, it's pretty darn close to how I imagine it to be. Brielle is faced with some very tempting propositions too. Will she rely on her faith or will she give in? We get to learn more about some of the other characters too. I absolutely love Brielle's best friend. She is a hoot, and adds some much needed comic relief to some otherwise tense moments. I absolutely love the cover! The covers through the whole trilogy are very nice. With this one, you learn exactly who the guy on this cover is. It's fitting. This book wraps up the trilogy nicely. All questions were answered, and all loose ends were tied up. I'm sad that this is the end, but I'm happy to have experienced these books. As a whole, this series is very well thought out. It's pretty impressive. The Angel Eyes Trilogy is definitely a favorite! This series is a must read!
