Giveaway!! "Angel Eyes" by Shannon Dittemore~YA Angelic Fiction Is Fabulous!

May I just say that this is the first book in a very long time I've read that made angelic beings seem real and perfectly awe-inspiring?!  I loved every single thing about this book.  The writing is inspiring and brilliant, the characters are engaging and strong, the plot is beautifully crafted and the tension is perfectly pitched.  This is a book you have to have.  A book that you won't want to stop reading once you start it.  I was very pleasantly surprised when it began and I was hooked from the first paragraphs. I'm a tough sell on these types of books. The emotions of Dittemore's Brielle just leap from the pages!  Her angelic beings both good and evil shattered some of my imaginings and I loved it!!  I highly recommend this book to YAs and the adults in their lives. A perfect cross over fiction. It's an inspirational read that will touch your heart and keep you thinking about the protection and love that surrounds us every day, even when we may not see it. 
 5 stars!!!

Official Summary:

Once you've seen, you can't unsee. Everything changes when you've looked at the world through . . .Angel Eyes

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 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.
