Book Review - Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore

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.

My Review 

There are two types of YA paranormal stories that I always love; witch stories and angel stories and the minute I saw the title and read the blurb, I knew I had to read this one!

We start off seeing Brielle returning to her home town after being in the city.  It is obvious that something bad had happened and that is why she left the city and that is something we find out all about later on in the story.   We then have Jake, the new guy at school, who seems to take a shine to Brielle but there's something about him that's different.  I really enjoyed the romantic element of the story between Brielle and Jake.

This story is slow paced and the change in view points in this story from the various characters made this story very enjoyable and addictive to keep reading.  It also has some really great action scenes nearer the end.  I definitely could not put it down.  I must also mention that near the end, this story does deal with some hard hitting issues that were a bit shocking and unexpected). 

Best wishes
