Dark Halo (Angel Eyes, #3)


Dark Halo Book #3 in the Angel Eyes series
By Shannon Dittemore
Published by Thomas Nelson

I read the first two in the series and was so happy that I was able to get a copy of the third book. In the beginning of the book it does give an update on what happened in the first two books. This book did not disappoint me. I absolutely loved the ending that it was given.

Jake was taken by the demon, Damian, in the previous book. Brielle is understandably upset over him being taken. Brielle stays close to the chest as she was asked and is finally given a hint of where Jake may be, which is also a part of the mystery. Brielle finds Jake and is taken with him by Damian and she meets Satan in the desert where he offers her his halo which will allow her to not have nightmares and to not see the Celestial.

Book Description

One halo brought sight to Brielle. Another offers sweet relief from what she sees.

Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial. Even without the halo, the invisible realm is everywhere she looks. It’s impossibly beautiful—and terrifying, especially now. Because a battle rages above Stratus, Oregon.

The Terrestrial Veil is ripping, and demons walk the streets past unseeing mortals. Dark, sticky fear drips from every face, and nightmares haunt Brielle’s sleep.

Worst of all, Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien. When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap.

Now she’s stranded in a sulfurous desert with the Prince of Darkness himself, and he’s offering her another halo—a mirrored ring that will destroy her Celestial vision. All she has to do is wear it and she’ll see no more of the invisible world. No more fear. No more nightmares. No more demons. It’s a gift. And best of all: it comes with the promise of a future with Jake, something the Throne Room seems to be taking from her.

Will Brielle trade the beauty of the Celestial and the truth of the world around her just to feel ordinary again?

Once Upon a Prince (#1 Royal Wedding)



By Rachel Hauck
Published by Zondervan

Susanna is on the beach, hoping to hear a proposal from her military man that she has spent years waiting for. Instead, he says I found the right ring to give to my future fiance, but it is not her. "Right ring, wrong woman." In the just a few days, Susanna loses her fiance, and quits her job. She comes to realize he is right, they weren't meant to be, and she feels like a fool for waiting for so long for him.

This was a really interesting book. Especially for just when you just wanting to relax. I would recommend this book to all who like to read romance novels that are not graphic.

Book Description

Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.

Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess---just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn’t going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.

The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon’s Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family’s tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna’s aid under the fabled Lover’s Oak, he is blindsided by love.

Their lives are worlds apart. He’s a royal prince. She’s an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation.
