CSFF Blog Tour “Broken Wings” – A Book Review
It’s another CSFF (Christian Science-Fiction & Fantasy) tour and this month we’re reviewing Broken Wings by Shannon Dittemore. Check out my fellow reviewers’ blogs (listed below) for their reviews. In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
The story of Brielle and Jake fighting demons with their special gifts and angel guardians continues where the first book Angel Eyes left off. It’s hard being the middle child of a trilogy. Everyone knows about the first one and the third one is the epic ending everyone is waiting for. The second born has to work extra hard time to get noticed. A good author handles this tension with ease and Dittemore doesn’t disappoint. She allows the reader to enjoy this book on its own with just enough detail and reintroduction from the first book to bring along the reader. It also introduce new characters, new challenges and exciting twists that don’t disappoint. However, since it’s the second book the ending is tempered with the finale still to come.
Brielle is an excellent protagonist because she is relate-able. She’s strong yet breaks down and cries. She’s searching for answers yet questions what she finds. She’s human but has a gift to see into the Celestial. Ok, maybe not everyone can do that, but I really appreciate how the author doesn’t elevate that gift into super human ability and a superiority complex. This story goes into some really deep stuff and some might find the Christianity topics a bit much but for me it was appropriate, after all this book is about Heaven and Hell, demons and angels, and good versus evil.
Dittemore’s descriptions of the Celestial and especially Worship as a sensory experience were captivating and there are some scenes that were definitely page turners. If you’ve read the first book you will really enjoy this sequel and like me, won’t be able to wait for the finale.
