So, one of the coolest things about being a writer is, I get to meet other writers. And sometimes if I beg hard enough, I get advance copies of their books. Shannon Dittemore is a fellow Apocalypsie and a good friend. She came along when I really needed a friend in the writing journey, which can be really lonely at times. So I was super excited when she gave me an ARC of ANGEL EYES to giveaway on my blog. ANGEL EYES is her YA novel which debuts on May 29th from Thomas Nelson.
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.
A little bit about Shannon (taken from Goodreads):
Shannon Dittemore has an overactive imagination and a passion for truth. Her lifelong journey to combine the two is responsible for a stint at Portland Bible College, performances with local theater companies, and a focus on youth and young adult ministry. The daughter of one preacher and the wife of another, she spends her days imagining things unseen and chasing her two children around their home in Northern California. Angel Eyes is her first novel.
Full disclosure here: I don’t normally read paranormal/supernatural stories and ANGEL EYES is the first “angel” story I’ve ever read. But Shannon’s lyrical prose, action-packed scenes, and compelling (and sometimes creepy) characters have made me think I might change my reading tastes. After reading ANGEL EYES I found myself reflecting on how the supernatural/things unseen really can be at the heart of some of the evil things we encounter in this world, and how fear can really be as thick as chains. (I can’t say more than that, lest I give away any spoilers.)
