Angel Eyes

It is truly wonderful to see more content for Juvenile Christian fiction. Like it or not, that age group is going to steer toward fiction writings and it is encouraging to see books like "Angel Eyes" available to those readers.

For me, personally, although the writing was good, I just wasn't captivated by the characters. I found it difficult to get through the pages. And as other reviewers have mentioned, at times the content was just too blatantly preachy. Finding a Christian fiction writer that is more subtle in their Christian message would be a treasure. Certain areas of the book seemed a little to over the top, dramatic. But I'm not a juvenile reader, so this may all be quite suitable for that age. I would pinpoint this age group as early teens. Other reviewers have also mentioned that this was far too similar to the Twilight series. I haven't read those, so I fear that if this is truly the case, young readers who have read Twilight may be terribly disappointed. For those Christians who have chosen not to read the Twilight series, this book seems like the perfect alternative! (Which I would HIGHLY recommend)
