Title: Shattering Halos
Author: Sunniva Dee
Genre: New Adult/Paranormal Romance
Release Date: Feb 24 2014











Synopsis: 
I traded my death for love. I wasn’t given a choice. His decision has caught up with us, so now I am a living, breathing catalyst to war between Heaven and Hell.
The violations he committed saved my life. Since the collision, he’s appeared everywhere. In my hospital room, my school, even my house. He shows up in my paintings, my drawings, in all of my art projects. I can’t stop thinking about him.
He says his name is Gabriel, and he doesn’t understand what’s happening to him. He doesn’t know how I can see him or why he wants me in ways that should be impossible for a Celestial.
My obsession grows. I need him to hold me, kiss me—give all of himself. For every day he protects me, the consequences loom darker and taller. Soon, they’ll crash down on us.
The war is about to begin.




Review by Lisa:        3.75 Angelic Stars


This was an enjoyable read. I give this debut author props on a great first book. I love any book about Angels, so this was right up my alley. It was well written; the author has a wonderful way with words.

"Apparently, they are trying to eat my boyfriend.With their eyes." - Gaia 


I'm usually drawn to the hero of  a story, but that was not the case with Shattering Halos. For some reason I was drawn to the bad boy, Cassiel. Well, he is sort of a bad boy. He is simply irresistible and I love his crass sense of humor. I am interested in hearing if Cassiel mesmerized others as he did me.

"His fingers sled expertly over my skin in ways that could have awakened a corpse." - Gaia to Cassiel


Hmm... it could be because of lines like that which make me drawn to Cassiel. Or for the fact that he may not be so bad after all. ; ) 



Excerpt:
No, no, no. This isn’t happening.
I crossed my arms and glared at my brother. At the moment, he was lounging peacefully in the ditch with a girl who should’ve been toast.
“Why’s she still alive? Take her out, man! You know you can’t get away with this.” Seriously. Way to go altering destinies.
Gabriel didn’t even flinch at my words, probably due to his madcap interest in drinking her in, lovesick-puppy style.

“Okay, you’re beaming at her. Will you snap out of it?”

Author Bio:


I write New Adult fiction, mostly with a paranormal twist, and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.
I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book”, aka, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which prompted me to drag my family and our menagerie of animals cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.
I'm currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend time with the “petting zoo,” as in an opinionated parrot, cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that … uh, bark.
I hold a Master's degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. For ten years, I taught at university level, before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Writing is my passion, my joy—my addiction. SHATTERING HALOS is my debut novel, released by The Wild Rose Press, and when I'm not writing, I read. Tons.
