Broken Wings (Angel Eyes #2) Book Review – Christian YA

Posted by on Sep 30, 2015 in Book Reviews | 0 comments

Broken Wings is the second book in the Angel Eyes Series, written by Shannon Dittemore, and it continues with the story of Brielle and Jake. I really like this series, as it’s unique and original. The author attempts to give us an idea of the spiritual warfare going on around us that we cannot see. It is a strong Christian read–not subtle. The main characters deal with many of the bad situations by praying and trying to stay strong in their faith.

I love how the first book dealt with the sex trade industry, and this one introduces alcoholism. This series touches on some harsh realities and has romance, yet it’s clean enough for older middle schoolers. The violence is not gory. The romance is sweet and done in a Christian way, and the touchy topics are handled delicately. This series is truly a positive, Christian read.

The only negative about this book was the ending. The first book had a story within itself, yet this one just seemed to get started toward the end. Luckily, the third book in the series is out, so you can easily resume the story. It didn’t end on a cliffhanger. It just didn’t end with a finish. It felt like it was in the middle of a scene.

I still give this book four stars, and I’ll definitely read the third book in the series. I’ll pass it on to my children, and I’ll continue to recommend this series to others who enjoy Christian fantasy.

Courtlight Series Comes to Overdrive, Ingram & 3M Cloud Library

The Courtlight Series is now available in Overdrive, Ingram, and 3M Cloud Library. We’re excited to announce that the titles have sold to over a dozen libraries in three countries since this initiative launched on July 31st.

Lauded as a “fantasy world that you don’t want to miss out on”, the Courtlight Series consists of seven full-length novels that give readers an imaginative escape into a high fantasy world. With over 100,000 English-language books sold, global readers have become “captivated from beginning to end”.

The series weaves an epic story of fantasy and romance, with avid comparisons to Tamora Pierce and Mercedes Lackey, as a girl struggles to overcome the odds of her place in society while saving a prince and his empire from mortal peril.

You’ll find that each book adds to an intricate storyline that enchants an young adult audience (Grade: 7 – 12 / Age: 12 – 19) and leaves the reader wanting more unforgettable magic.

Courtlight

Courtlight Series by Terah Edun

Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the empire. But beneath her empire’s seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder—intensified by the five year anniversary of the soulbond initiations.

Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companions Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she’d never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.

But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.

This sensational series debut melds intricate storylines with remarkable characters and unforgettable magic. Sworn To Raise is ideal for fans of Kristin Cashore, Michelle Sagara, and Maria Snyder.
