Book Tour: Review - Shattering Halos

Title - Shattering Halos
Author - Sunniva Dee
 Series - Halos #1
Publication date - February 24th 2014
Genre - New Adult, Paranormal

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.

I received Shattering Halos in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.  Gaia should have died with her friends in a fatal car accident but by some miracle she survived. At the scene of the accident, in her hospital room, and even at home Gaia has seen a handsome stranger only to learn that he’s an angel her guardian who saved her life. Her friend instantly tells her about him being a fallen angel a demon wanting to control her but Gaia knows that he is something different.

Gaia can’t get him out of her mind even though he’s all wrong for her she knows she has to have him in her life. However Gaia knows that guardian angles don’t act like Gabriel is, that she shouldn’t be able to tempt him the way she does. Gabriel hopes that it’s Michael giving him another chance but even when she asks him to remain invisible he can’t stop protecting her. An angel in love with his charge, and a girl in love with her guardian angel a relationship that tests them both changing everything they know.

Right off I liked Gaia and Gabriel there was something about each of them I just couldn’t get enough of. I like that that author gave us an insight into Gabriel so I had an idea where he was coming from and knew that he wasn’t such a bad guy after all. I wasn’t sure at first about Gaia’s insta love obsession with Gabriel but it works.

I haven’t read many books with Angels so when I saw the tour for Shattering Halos I jumped at the chance to read the book. I found the concept for the book unique the way the author put her own spin on the angel romance was clever. Shattering Halos is a captivating story it’s filled with raw emotion as the pair find their way keeping the reader drawn in till the very end. I honestly really enjoyed the story it is well written from start to finish flowing smoothly. The characters are great I was really able to connect with Gaia which I liked. I finished Shattered Halos in just a few short hours and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book of the series. 
4 out of 5 stars 

I write New Adult fiction 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 spurred my husband and me to move 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 my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of 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. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
