Giant angels with metal wings and visible song. A blind demon restored from the pit of darkness. And a girl who has never felt more broken.
Brielle sees the world as it really is: a place where the Celestial exists side by side with human reality. But in the aftermath of a supernatural showdown, her life begins to crumble.
Her boyfriend, Jake, is keeping something from her—something important. Her overprotective father has started drinking again. And he’s dating a much younger woman who makes Brielle’s skin crawl. Haunting nightmares invade Brielle’s sleep, and flashes of Celestial vision keep her off kilter.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s been targeted. The Prince of Darkness himself has heard of the boy with healing in his hands and of the girl who sees through the Terrestrial Veil.
Brielle has no choice. She knows evil forces are converging and will soon rain their terror down on the town of Stratus. She must master
the weapons she’s been given. She must fight.
But can she fly with broken wings?
My Take On This Book:
Broken Wings is the second book in a trilogy by Shannon Dittemore, is the second book in the Christian fantasy series Angel Eyes which I did not know, I did not read the first book in this trilogy before reading Broken Wings, so I was a bit lost.
What I did get from reading this book in the series is that the story centers on Brielle, who believes strongly in the spirit world. Angel Eyes the first book in the series introduces readers to the characters who continue to appear in Broken Wings, which I would deem helpful and very important to read first.
Even though I did not get to read the first book, I did find this book a bit fascinating a view of a girl who has strong beliefs about the spirit world. In this book, Brielle finds herself targeted by the prince of darkness and her boyfriend Jake is acting mysterious as if he is keeping a secret from her. Her dad starts drinking again and seeing a much younger woman whom Brielle cannot stand.
I recommend that anyone interested in reading the book that you read the first book in this trilogy so you are not too lost. Do not get me wrong this is a very good book, but I want to read the first book and come back and read this one again. The series itself sounds awesome, but when I read a series, I want to start from the beginning.
