Julie one more time for the CSFF Blog Tour on Broken Wings by Shannon Dittemore!
I'm just looking back at the entries (well, those I saw before about 9 PM Pacific time Tuesday night).
Several CSFFers posted about Biblical elements in particular in Broken Wings. Meagan @ Blooming with Books cited Biblical instances of prophetic dreams and also the possibility of seeing into heaven (or as Broken Wings would call it, the Celestial). Shannon McDermott makes a pretty compelling case for the Cherubim and Shields being consistent with the Bible (though I'm still not so sure about the Sabers :) ). As Meagan so brilliantly commented on my entry, "If Broken Wings has turned us to the Bible to search for answers then perhaps it is a good thing." I completely agree.
Others praised the writing in the book...as I'd mentioned, I didn't feel like there were the same witty touches here, so I was disappointed. But several CSFFers seemed to appreciate the descriptions in Broken Wings, including Kathleen Smith and Rebecca LuElla Miller.
Shannon McDermott (again) has some memorable lines about why she doesn't like Jake and Brielle so much this time around (and I agree with most of it!) She wraps up with: "Those who like books about angels will find this the sort of thing they like. Even those who don’t may make an exception."
That about sums it up better than I could write.
Thanks for the tour, everyone!
