Release date:

Available internationally in paperback and digital formats. (English)

This novel is New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist. In it, “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire meets the TV series “Supernatural”—if the brothers were angels and love made them lose their heads.


He 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.

Hmm…can I stay like this forever?

My heart hammered. Nestled under Gabriel’s chin and hyperaware of his proximity, I let him flood my senses. From the hollow dip at his neck, I sucked in the scent of his skin. I savored his palpability, the undisputable reality of him being there with me. His chest flowed into me and ebbed away in a slow, steady rhythm.

“What am I going to do with you?”

No. That’s his first question after months and months and months?

My head snapped up to study his expression. Gabriel released me, and holding me out, he looked me over. The dazzling aquamarine of his irises shifted like northern lights, but when his eyes fixed mine, they deepened and calmed.

“I’m sorry this happened, Gaia. It shouldn’t have.”

“Excuse me? What shouldn’t have happened?” I snuggled tight. Groaning softly, he hesitated before wrapping me back into his arms.

Goose bumps broadcasted my response, and Gabriel stilled for a moment. When he moved to whisper into my hair, I couldn’t hide the shivers running down my spine. “You shouldn’t have seen me.” The words pulsated through me in ripples.

How can something feel so good it hurts?

“And more than anything, you were not supposed to feel that.”

My cheeks heated. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.

“But you do.” No uncertainty in his answer, no humor…

Author Biography

Hi there! Here I am, on the back of the magazine! 🙂

I am Sunniva. 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.
