Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore Review

Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore
(Angel Eyes, #1)
Release Date: May 29, 2012
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Fiction; 327 pages

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.

Anything to do with angels, I am there. I just love reading about how different authors have their own take on angels. I really loved Shannon's take on angels and demons here in Angel Eyes.

When we meet Brielle she is broken, and you can tell right away, she is barely holding on. The guilt of a pass event is hanging on her and keeping her from ever feeling normal, warm, alive. I like how in this story you don't find out right away what is bothering Brielle. It's not drug out, it just comes out at the right moment in the book, right when Brielle feels she can trust again. I will tell you that once it did come out, I was in tears, I just could not imagine that ever happening and the way it was written, it was just a beautify sad moment.

Jake is a welcome surprise in this book. For me, I wasn't sure that he was trust worthy or not in the beginning. Maybe he was too nice right away? Maybe that is just my own personal problem reflecting in the story lol. But he quickly won me over and what he does for Brielle is amazing, and so sweet to read. He is the breath of fresh air she so desperately needs. He seems to be so deeply in love with her already, and that is another thing that keeps you reading, to see why he feels so strongly right away.

The last few chapters in this book were intense, I couldn't put the book down, I just had to finish to know what happened. I am scared with how the book ended and with reading the blurb for book 2 and 3, I'm very scared how this will all turn out, not scared in a bad way, but scared in the way that there is no way I am not reading the next 2 books. I loved this book!!
