It’s been a while since I last read a good Paranormal Romance novel, and not for lack of trying. Sunniva Dee’s Shattering Halos reminded me how awesome this genre can be. I was gushing about it right after I read it but after some much-needed stewing, I couldn't ignore the major hang-ups I had while reading the book. I liked the fact that it’s got the whole NA thing going on but this series has its work cut out for it if it wants to make it into the big leagues of PNR. Given that assessment, I still think Shattering Halos is a book worth reading (and Halos a series worth following)

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.
