Once you've seen, you can't unsee. Everything changes when you've looked at the world through . . .
Brielle's a ballerina who went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She's come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and the incredible, numbing cold she can't seem to shake.
Jake's the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.
Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what's going to happen. And a beauty brighter than either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices start.
A realm that only angels and demons and Brielle can perceive.

For the most part I enjoyed this story. It was the end I didn't appreciate much. Yeah all the things fell into place properly, but it still felt off to me.
I haven't read a lot of books with angels and demons and now I realize why. Religion is such a touchy subject, whether you care to admit it or not, that you don't want to overstep your bounds by believing something different and in turn offending someone.
You might be like, "what?", but while I believe in God, I'm not so convinced in the angel or demon thing. I surely don't buy them walking or living among us.
So then I look at the book from an imaginative perspective, and I'm still torn with so much religious things in it. It can't help but challenge me and my beliefs.
Definitely a complex story that leaves you thinking. One I would pick up again, probably not.
Recommend? If you're into angels, yes.
