The mysterious clash of light and darkness, seen and unseen, will draw the reader into book two of the Angel Eyes trilogy. The author has spectacularly designed a supernatural setting filled with charismatic characters whose gifts are worth noting. Dittemore draws us into the most worshipful moments and equally crafts a thread of fear and despair as the plot leads us into a darker existence that teens are able to rise above. It is great to have a young adult novel that casts Scripture as an ever-present help in times of trouble.
Jake and Brielle joined forces to uncover a child sex trafficking ring in book one. Now they are thrown together again to find the man or demon behind the disappearance of the halo and the ring. Because without these sacred gifts from the chest, the hope they bring is dashed. Brielle wonders if she will lose her abilities to see the celestial and know for certain who is in need of God’s wonders and miracles. Jake knows he is being stalked because of his abilities to heal with his touch. Will beings of the underworld take away their gifts, or are these shades after their souls?
