Angel Eyes

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  (Ephesians 6:12)


I’ve always been fascinated by the world we can’t see–the supernatural world of angels and demons.  My first Frank Peretti novel had me glued to the pages, and others like Ted Dekker and Randy Alcorn have captured my attention since.  Angel Eyes, by Shannon Dittemore (check out her fun blog HERE), is one of the first novels I’ve read in a long time that comes close to the intensity of Peretti’s work.

Brielle is a young girl who has endured a horrible tragedy–her best friend has been murdered.  And, given the bruises Brielle has been noticing on her arms, her boyfriend, Marco seems to be the likely culprit.  In order to get some peace while she waits for the trial, Brielle leaves her dancing school in the city and returns to her home town of Stratus, her childhood friends, and regular high school.

However, despite the familiarity of home, Brielle is chilled, literally, as fear takes residence in her body.  That is, until she meets a new kid in school–Jake–whose body seems to literally radiate warmth.  Her friendship with Jake opens up a world she didn’t know existed, and she discovers that what she thought she knew of the ‘real’ world is really just a facade in comparison to the truth she finds in the Celestial realm.  Together, Brielle and Jake enter into a battle she never even knew existed.

Angel Eyes has adventure, danger, romance, spiritual depth, fantastic characters, and a great story line.  I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Broken Wings.
