Blog Tour: Dark Halo by Shannon Dittemore Review & Giveaway

Dark Halo by Shannon Dittemore
(The Angel Eyes Trilogy, #3)
Release Date: August 20, 2013
Publisher: Thomas Nelson; 320 pages

One halo brought sight to Brielle. Another offers sweet relief from what she sees.
Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial realm. Even without the halo, it’s everywhere she looks. And with the heavens above Stratus ravaged by war, Brielle wishes for another gift, any gift. Because Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien—and she knows if she ever wants to see him again, she must fight.
But fighting is so hard when everything you see makes you afraid.
When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap. Then the Prince of Darkness himself offers Brielle a halo of his own making. With the dark halo, she won’t have to see the fear and brokenness that surround her. She’ll be free of that unbearable burden. And it comes with a promise: the guarantee of a life with Jake.
When confusing details about Jake’s past emerge, and the battle above reaches a fever pitch, Brielle is forced to make a choice. Will she choose the dark halo and the ignorance that comes with it, or will she choose to live with her eyes wide open and trust the Creator’s design—even if it means a future without Jake?

When I finished reading Broken Wings, I was very anxious for Dark Halo to come out. It was one heck of a cliff hanger, and I just needed to know what was going to happen to Jake, along with everyone else. It was a little while for me to wait for the next installment of the Angel Eyes trilogy, but I was very happy when I finally got Dark Halo and found out that no time away from this series could make me forget anything that had happen in the previous books. This is a story that sticks with you.

This is the final installment in the Angel Eyes Trilogy, and a lot of things com to a head in this book. There was so much packed into this series, but it didn't feel too packed, everything was addressed and answered one way or another. This book had A LOT of information in it. But it answered all of my questions, and I felt very fulfilled when I finished this book.

By this time, Brielle, is at her wits end. She is trying to stay strong, to keep praying but everything that has happened is really wearing at her resolve. At the end of Broken Wings, Jake is taken from her. Not just her, but from Cannen as well. I for sure thought this would utterly destroy her, so when I started reading Dark Halo, I was happy that it didn't completely destroy her, but I can see how this all falls into Satan's hands.

It feels like everything and everyone comes together in this book. Especially for Jake and what he finds out about Ali. I won't spoil it for anyone, but it is awesome. Small world comes to mind for sure. My favorite line from this book is from Brielle, "I just...I'm going to go talk to Satan." Just so matter of fact, like it is just a normal day thing. This was a fantastic end to such a beautiful and moving trilogy. It us paranormal, but it is also very real, and faith wielding. It made me believe even more, and I just loved every minute of it!!
