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.

Release Date: February 19, 2013
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Fiction; 320 pages

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?

When I had read the the synopsis for Broken Wings, I have to say, I was a little disappointed by what it said. It made it hard for me to get into this book because I was almost scared of what was gonna happen to these characters. That didn't last long, just like Angel Eyes, Broken Wings sucked me in and I could not stop reading.

Broken Wings is a so much more emotional and heart wrenching then Angel Eyes. Granted Brielle and Jake know a lot more in this book, but Brielle goes through a lot of heavy things and it takes a toll on her, and you as the reader. You really feel for her and feel all the things she is going through. Jake is just the perfect guy to me. He is so understanding of everything that Brielle is going through, and he is there by her side, not judging her, just loving her. There is a lot more faith, if you will, in this book. I love it! It really makes me want to go to church right away to worship the Father. Even though this is a fiction book, the power of faith and worship that is portrayed in this book, will touch anyone. I felt the love and worship that Brielle and Jake have for the Father.

Then ending I knew was coming by the synopsis, but it wasn't as heart wreching as I thought it would be. Brielle is obviously saddened but it's not crushing her spirit. She wants to fight, to find Jake, an it just makes me that much more excited for Dark Halo. I am very curious to see what role Olivia will play in the third book, and it she finds the same peace that Brielle has. This book was amazing, I was glued to my kindle and could not put it down, pick up this series!! Amazing!!!
