Brielle 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 an 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 either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices begin.
A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.
"Angel Eyes" by Shannon Dittemore is a great fiction novel for teens that has a little bit of everything for everyone. This book has fast paced action, angels, demons, romance, and the transitions from pain to healing. In the begining of this book, Brielle is broken and in pain after dealing with the death of her best friend. She blames herself and lives in constant shame and guilt from the experience. As she starts trying to live in her home town that is everything but cheery, she has this constant feeling of cold that surrounds her continually. It wasn't until she met Jake, that everything started to change. As you follow Brielle into her journey of forgiving herself, learning to love again when all feels lost, and learning more about a God that loves her, you will fall in love with each and every one of the characters along the way.
In my opinion, this is one of those books that all teenagers should read. It's very well written and has something for everyone. If you've ever had questions where you wondered why God would allow so much pain in your life or allow so much suffering in the world around you, then this book is a must read. I would easily give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recomend it to my friends. :)
