Shattering Halos by Sunniva Dee
Publication date: February 24th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal
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.

"The blurb of Shattering Halos starts with "I traded my death for love." I want to know what crazy things would the author do for love."
LOL, what a creative question—I love it!
I think the reason why I write New Adult literature is that I've been there in terms of doing crazy things for love. I'm a passionate person in everything that I do, and yes—I never had a problem going all out for love. To brush low points, in my college years I've banged on doors in the middle of the night in a rage over fights with my then boyfriend. I've… yeah, no. Enough about my college years. Let's just say that the ultimate crazy thing I've done for love was to pack up my entire home, ship it off from Bergen, Norway (yes, to the left of Sweden, all the way up north, there, in Europe, by the North Pole) to move to Los Angeles because of my love. Twelve years later, I'm still married to my Angelino husband, Michael, but we're now living in Savannah, Georgia. If he told me he'd like to move to Bali next, I'd go—as long as I got to bring my laptop. ;)
I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.
I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.
I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.
I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
