One halo brought sight to Brielle. Another offers sweet relief from what she sees.
Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial realm. Even without the halo, it’s everywhere she looks. And with the heavens above Stratus ravaged by war, Brielle wishes for another gift, any gift. Because Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien—and she knows if she ever wants to see him again, she must fight.
But fighting is so hard when everything you see makes you afraid.

When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap. Then the Prince of Darkness himself offers Brielle a halo of his own making. With the dark halo, she won’t have to see the fear and brokenness that surround her. She’ll be free of that unbearable burden. And it comes with a promise: the guarantee of a life with Jake.
When confusing details about Jake’s past emerge, and the battle above reaches a fever pitch, Brielle is forced to make a choice. Will she choose the dark halo and the ignorance that comes with it, or will she choose to live with her eyes wide open and trust the Creator’s design—even if it means a future without Jake?

My Review: So this is the third and last book in this series. Now this book does contain faith, which can make some people throw this book off their to-read lists. Now, I don't like religion or faith type books, but all three books, are pretty darn good. Shannon does have a way of writing. She makes it so that, it does not over power the book. Which is good, for many readers out there, who I know would love it. One thing this book has done is captured heaven and hell. In anyway you think of it, the good and evil, nice and bad, either way these books have it. Now that is one hard thing do to, but when you nail it, well that's one good book.

It's fast paced at parts, and jaw dropping in others. In other words, you don't put the book down until the end.
