Guest Review and Giveaway: Dark Halo by Shannon Dittemore

Hey guys! Welcome to Celestial Reviews`s tour stop for the Dark Halo tour! I bet your wondering why it says guest review? Well, my mom suckered me into letting her do another review. Also, I didnt get the book in time to be able to read it and the second book -- my schedule just became too busy. Although, if you keep an eye out here and goodreads, you might see it pop up in the next month or so.

Shannon Dittemore is having a Live Twitter Chat August 27th at 6pm (Pacific) where she will be giving away a Kindle Fire HD and other prizes!  Enter here:

Anywhoo -- here is the 5 star review! (slight spoilers)

As the last book of the Angel Eyes Trilogy, Dark Halo does a wonderful job of summing up the message throughout the whole series: Faith is about beleiveing, not  necessarily seeing.
I loved the fact that Brielle`s dad finally began to understand this, and his understaning actually helped Brielle to beleive that God still had a plan for her and Jake even with the engagement ring missing.

Dark Halo gives closure and answered questions we first asked while reading Angel Eyes, and although we don't get to witness Jake and Brielle`s wedding at the end, our imaginations get the thrill of knowing there will be one. I absolutely loved reading this series, and I stayed up late just to finish them. I reccomend these books to anyone and I am looking forward to any other books by Shannon Dittemore. 
I hope that there are more in this series, and if not then maybe a spin off series to help satisfy the questions on what happens after this one.

Dark Halo (Angel Eyes, #3)

Dark Halo (Angel Eyes Trilogy #3)

One halo brought sight to Brielle. Another offers sweet relief from what she sees.
Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial realm. Even without the halo, it’s everywhere she looks. And with the heavens above Stratus ravaged by war, Brielle wishes for another gift, any gift. Because Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien—and she knows if she ever wants to see him again, she must fight.
But fighting is so hard when everything you see makes you afraid.
When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap. Then the Prince of Darkness himself offers Brielle a halo of his own making. With the dark halo, she won’t have to see the fear and brokenness that surround her. She’ll be free of that unbearable burden. And it comes with a promise: the guarantee of a life with Jake.
When confusing details about Jake’s past emerge, and the battle above reaches a fever pitch, Brielle is forced to make a choice. Will she choose the dark halo and the ignorance that comes with it, or will she choose to live with her eyes wide open and trust the Creator’s design—even if it means a future without Jake?

I love how the book cover with the feathers reflects the halo/angel theme of the book.
