I haven't been this excited about a new voice in Christian fiction since Frank Perretti's THIS PRESENT DARKNESS found its way into my teenage hands many years ago. Dittemore's voice reminds me of a modern day Perretti, but with more romance and more flashes of humor.

ANGEL EYES has a lot going for it. The prose is gorgeous. There were sentences I just wanted to wallow in. The characters quickly found a place in my heart. I loved Brielle's brokenness and snarky/funny voice. Jake melted my heart from the moment he stepped onto the page. And the supporting cast all had distinct personalities and purposes within the story as well.

I enjoyed the plot. There's a bit of mystery, there's adventure and scary stakes, and there's a lovely exploration of what it means to accept that God is sovereign and that bad things still happen. I appreciated being able to see behind the spiritual warfare curtain to what was going on in the angel and demon realm.

I really loved reading this book. Every time I put it down, I couldn't wait to get back to it. This is a solid debut from a fresh voice in Christian fiction, and I can't wait to read what Ms. Dittemore writes next.
