Dark Halo, by Shannon Dittemore, is the third and final chapter of the Angel Eyes trilogy. Tragic and hauntingly beautiful, Dark Halo is the perfect way to wrap up this poetic and breathtaking series.
For some, demons only exist in nightmares. For Brielle, those nightmares are living and breathing and walking among the people of Stratus, Oregon. The burden of her sight is heavy, and to top it all off, the boy she loves, Jake, has been taken by the demon Damien.
Will Brielle be able to rescue Jake? Can she withstand the temptation to accept an offer to destroy her Celestial vision, an offer given by the Prince of Darkness himself? Full of heartbreak and difficult choices, Dark Halo is an ending that will satisfy Shannon Dittemore fans who have followed this series from the beginning.
What I liked…
Shannon Dittemore has a very unique voice. She writes like one who has written twenty-five novels, rather than only three. I love how poetic and prose-like her books are. Her settings are vivid and descriptive, coming alive and more colorful with every word you read.
I was also pleased with the conflict and added tension between Brielle and Jake in Dark Halo. I felt like they needed to have this sort of moment where you don’t know what’s going to happen with their relationship, and I applaud Shannon for writing this into the story. I saw a little bit of this in Broken Wings, but it really came out in Dark Halo. Of all three books, I felt Dark Halo was the most real and well written as far as character development goes, particularly for Olivia and Marco. I really enjoyed seeing their side of things in Dark Halo and felt like it was a step in the right direction for the series. I am very much looking forward to seeing what is next for Shannon Dittemore. The Angel Eyes trilogy is a very strong debut series. I expect that anything that comes from Shannon will only get better, richer, and deeper.
I recommend Dark Halo to readers who have an appetite for supernatural, young adult love stories. I also recommend reading Angel Eyes and Broken Wings before reading Dark Halo if you haven’t already. The series is best as a linear whole and will make more sense when read in sequence.
Shannon Dittemore lives in Portland with her family. She has a background in performing arts and outreach. Her passion for truth and overactive imagination shine through her writing. You can find out more about Shannon by visiting her website, or by connecting with her on Facebook and Twitter.
Have you read this series? If so, what was your favorite of the three books and why? I love hearing from you. Until then, happy reading!
