Introducing Dark Halo

Dark Halo by Shannon Dittemore

Dark HaloGenre: YA fantasy, spiritual warfare


One halo brought sight to Brielle. Another offers sweet relief from what she sees.

Angel Eyes Book Three

Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial. Even without the halo, the invisible realm is everywhere she looks. It’s impossibly beautiful—and terrifying, especially now. Because a battle rages above Stratus, Oregon.

The Terrestrial Veil is ripping, and demons walk the streets past unseeing mortals. Dark, sticky fear drips from every face, and nightmares haunt Brielle’s sleep.

Worst of all, Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien. When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap.

Now she’s stranded in a sulfurous desert with the Prince of Darkness himself, and he’s offering her another halo—a mirrored ring that will destroy her Celestial vision. All she has to do is wear it and she’ll see no more of the invisible world. No more fear. No more nightmares. No more demons. It’s a gift. And best of all: it comes with the promise of a future with Jake, something the Throne Room seems to be taking from her.

Will Brielle trade the beauty of the Celestial and the truth of the world around her just to feel ordinary again?

What others are saying

“Not only does Shannon Dittemore’s prose read like poetry, her story bursts with creativity and is rich with meaning. Reading this book has forever changed the way I think of fear.”— Stephanie Morrill, Barnes & Noble reviewer

“This was an exciting and phenomenal final installment in a truly fascinating YA fantasy trilogy. The writing continued to flow effortlessly and at a fast pace. Brielle continues to be an awesome lead character—she’s still broken and flawed—and she knows this—but she refuses to give up, even when she feels like she can’t bear it anymore. She always does what needs to be done—what must be done—and she gives everything she has for what she believes is right.”—Stephanie Ward, Amazon reviewer

“…like Peretti’s This Present Darnkess meets X-Men.”—The Story Sanctuary
