About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Dark Halo by Shannon Dittemore- Review and Giveaway!

My Thoughts:

Dark Halo, by Shannon Dittemore, is the thrilling third book in the Angel Eyes trilogy.  It's a combination of drama/romance/battle between good and evil.  This book will leave you breathless!  The main characters, Jake and Brielle, are gifted with special abilities from the Creator (God) and this makes them appealing to the dark side, particularly the Prince of Darkness (Satan).  At the end of Broken Wings Jake is taken away by a demon and Brielle is heartbroken and longing to find a way to save him.  She's willing to do anything and this is what the dark side is banking on.  When presented with a proposition from the Prince of Darkness, Brielle falters in her faith in order (she believes) to protect her loved ones.  Angels and demons are battling in the small town of Stratus and Jake and Brielle are in the middle of the chaos.

Dark Halo's characters truly make the story special.  Jake and Brielle are "quality" characters with depth and compassion and this makes the reader want to find out more about them.  Shannon Dittemore gives her teen (and adult!) readers more than a "kiss and tell" story- this is a battle between good and evil!  I loved how Olivia, Marco and Kaylee added layers to the adventure, in that they all had their own stories.  Damien, the demon, is absolutely terrifying.  Every time his name was on the page I could feel my heart start to race!  This may be a YA novel but it certainly kept my attention and had me racing through pages to discover how it would end.
