Broken Wings

Gr 8 Up—Broken Wings opens where Angel Eyes (Thomas Nelson, 2012) ended. Brielle and Jake are enjoying a relatively normal life in Stratus. Their love is strong and they know that they are destined to marry. At first glance things seem relatively quiet, although the teens are still guarded by their shield angels-Canaan and Helene. However, all is not as it appears in this small town where humans, demons, and angels interact with great frequency. Damien, the fallen angel from Angel Eyes who was responsible for the murder of Brielle's friend, as well as for organizing a pedophile ring, is back and has discovered that the teens have special gifts. Jake's hands have the power to heal and Brielle can actually see the Celestial world. Damien convinces Lucifer, the Prince of Darkness, to capture them for his own use. The plot thickens when the grave of Brielle's long-dead mother turns out to be empty, and her dad falls for a woman with evil intentions. Conflict ensues overhead as angels and fallen angels engage in an epic battle of good vs. evil-and Brielle, with her power to view the Celestial, sees it all, even when Jake is whisked skyward, away from her. At times the plot is confusing, but teens who like paranormal, edge-of-your-seat drama with a strong Christian message will enjoy this second installment in the trilogy.—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
