"Angel Eyes" by Shannon Dittemore

Brielle has returned to her home in Stratus, Oregon, but this homecoming is not what anyone expected. Brielle is not happy and the sadness that hovers around her affects those near her. Something horrible happened. Everyone knows. Brielle doesn't want to talk about it, she wants to be invisible, yet she knows she has to move through her life somehow. As she re-enters the school she left a couple of years before, a new boy named Jake also starts. He saw her dancing. He seems to show up everywhere she is. Is he a stalker or worse? Could he simply be a protector?

In a world where angels and demons battle, humans can be pawns and need protection. As the demons (fallen angels - Damien) and the angels (Shield Angels - Canaan) battle, most people can't see them. But, after receiving a gift from Jake, Brielle can see them. How does this affect her and her ability to move past tragedy and sadness? Will she finally understand what is going on and why Jake is in her life? Will she and Jake work together to help those around them? This first book in a new trilogy by Shannon Dittemore will provide answers to these questions and many more.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next in the series. The story pulled me in immediately and I wanted to know what had made Brielle so sad. I wanted her relationship with her father to be strong again, and I wanted to know who Jake was. In my quest for these answers I found so much more. I recommend this book to anyone who loves stories about the battle between good and evil, mysteries, and YA fiction. The book is well written and will pull you into its pages, leaving you wanting more. I received my free review copy from Litfuse Publishing for an honest review in the blog tour.
