Broken Wings by Shannon Dittemore (The Angel Eyes Trilogy)

Broken Wings is the second book in this wonderful series! Angel Eyes is the first, and Dark Halo will be the third. Frankly, I wish this were not going to be *just* a trilogy! These books are great!!!
About 7 month later we pick Briell's story back up again. Her life has NOT returned to "normal" in any way that she thought that it would. In fact, it has gotten even more Spiritual than before! Oh, not spiritual in the way that religion has it, but in her day to day life is now starting to include seeing the Celestial, or the Spirit realm.

Briell is having nightmares, or are they nightmare? Even with the halo under her pillow at night, the dreams just so real that she is watching through someone else's eyes. Someone she feels she should know. A mystery that God must want to her to deal with or solve. But Briell doesn't know why and Jake doesn't have all the pieces to this puzzle either. Briell's Dad is drinking again, and then.... then there is what happens with her Mother's grave!

The most massive angels you can imagine are descending on Stratus and warfare and praise are falling and rising up in the most unlikely of places. Briell, Jake, and a few other people as well as several Angels are all smack in the middle of it all... fighting  Fighting and praying to find out what they are really fighting for, because when your eyes are really open, there is no going back. That leads me to wonder, what do other people see? I know what I see, and I can read about what Briell is seeing, but what do others see?

If possible you will see me run a three day post on this one!

About the book:

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.
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?
