Broken Wings (Angel Eyes Trilogy #2)
Release Date: February 19, 2013
320 pages

 Summary from Goodreads:
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. He’s dating a much younger woman who makes Brielle’s skin crawl, and he’s downright hostile toward Jake. Haunting nightmares keep Brielle from sleeping, 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. When he plucks the blind demon, Damien, from the fiery chasm and sends him back to Earth with new eyes, the stage is set for a cataclysmic battle of good versus evil.

Then Brielle unearths the truth about her mother’s death and she must question everything she ever thought was true.

Brielle has no choice. She knows evil forces are converging and will soon rain their terror down upon 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

Broken Wings was absolutely AMAZING!!!!  It was even better than the first book.  Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down.  I HAD to know what was going to happen.  Shannon did a fantastic job on crafting a story that enthralled me from page one.  The story drew me in and felt so life-like.  I felt as if I was standing right there with them the entire time.  I was able to see everything they saw, feel everything the felt.  That makes a story even more magical to me.  I couldn't believe how much time went by when I finished this book.  

Broken Wings picked up where Angel Eyes ended.  Brielle starts to move on after Ali's death.  She is also growing closer to Jake which her father doesn't like at all.  Her father starts up drinking big time and starts dating a younger woman that Brielle has uneasy feelings for.  Jake is hiding something from Brielle and she knows that.  Brielle is also having horrible nightmares keeping her from sleeping.   I was able to relate to each and everyone of the characters in this story.  I loved all of them, but the evil doers of course.  

Broken Wings to me on an epic journey I didn't expect.  It was even better than the first book.  This book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  All I can say about the ending is wow.  It definitely left me wanting more.  I need the third book now!!!!  I have always loved books about Angels and this series has become one of my favorites.  Broken Wings is a book I will definitely reread.  This book is a must read everyone!!!!!  Great job Shannon!!!!

336 pages

Summary from Goodreads:

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


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 Jake or Brielle 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.
