Lesson Learned from this book: God is always there and He always has a plan.

Back Blurb:

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 Review:

The Book:
So maybe it’s because I didn’t read Book 1 in the series, Angel Eyes, or maybe it’s because I had a lot to do, but for some reason Broken Wings didn’t make sense to me. I didn’t understand it. It was a good book, though, and had many excellent points. There’s a lot of things in this books the saved and unsaved alike need to read.
The Plot:
               The plot seemed a little slow at times and very explanatory.
The Writing:
               The writing was good and easy to understand. I’m very thankful Ms. Dittemore doesn’t use big words that nobody knows the meaning of! I could have done with a Little. Less. Of. This.
The Characters:
               The characters were well-written. Kaylee was my favorite, mostly because she reminded me of myself. Jake seemed kind of girly though. Brielle was a lovable character. Brielle’s dad, Keith, is another story entirely. He really really really bugged me. He was by far my least favorite character.
Note to the Author:
               Ms. Dittemore, you have no idea what a pleasure it was to read a book with no sex scenes and no swearing. It was very refreshing! Thank you so much!
