(ARC) REVIEW: Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore

Title: Angel Eyes
Author: Shannon Dittemore
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Fiction
Date Published: 5-29-12

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 Rating: Probably More 3.5*'s

My Review:
This story was a fresh spin on all of the Angel stories out there right now.

One thing that really bothered me was the many alternating points of view. This works in some books but for some reason just didnt get pulled off here. When it was a Damien or even Canaan POV I found myself bored and rushing through. The Point of View I wanted (Jake) wasn't even there.

This story had a great plot and unfolded well. It had undertones of Christianity, but not to the point where the reader felt force-fed.
