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

    Brielle's a ballerina who 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 either Brielle or Jake 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.

    My take on this book:
    Brielle Matthews left her tiny hometown of Stratus two years ago to go to school in the city and  pursue her dreams of becoming a dancer, but after the death of her friend Allie, something which she blames herself for she finds herself going back home to finish her senior year at Stratus High.When she arrives home she learns that someone has moved next door into the old Miller place. Turns out its the new boy in school and his name is Jake who lives with a man named Canaan. There is something different about Jake and Brielle soon learns what it is and who Canaan really is.In a battle between good and evil which will ultimately win?

    In "Angel Eyes" the author weaves a story that gives readers a glimpse of the age old war of good verses evil. I thought the character of Brielle was very well written, she was struggling with her faith, because of the losses she had suffered in her life. I thought the author did a great job of allowing her character to grow and develop as the story progressed. Jake was someone that was easy to like, and I thought the author did a good job of showing his feelings for Brielle. Overall an interesting twist on angels and demons with an ending that left me wanting more.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
