Halo- Alexandra Adornetto
Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces.
Is love a great enough power against evil?
After reading reviews I was hesitant to buy this book, many said it wasn't what they were expecting or that is was very cliche and like any other angel book they had read. I got it anyways and three days later the package showed up in the mail with all the other books I had ordered (I love chapters they even mail you books you buy online). I read this one first because if I didn't like it I would have something else to read after. So with that thought in mind I began reading.
The beginning of Halo was… Interesting enough to get me reading but the promise of romance to come is what kept me reading. By the middle of the book I was hooked, love interest, secrets, and evil lurking ready to attack. It was exciting, but yet I could put the book down and not think about it for days of which is what I did a few times honestly. I believe that the ending was left open for more books to follow and make this a series. I am interested in buying it to see what would happen next with Beth, as this was a interesting but which I did enjoy evening if dull in areas.
This is a book I would recommend it to readers looking for a interesting read about angels, true love, forbidden love, and how Beth and her sweetheart ignored all odds and love no matter what the risk. Although I wouldn't recommend this book if you are looking for something that you could read over and over as I found it was not one that I would've been able to reread.
And so with all this being said I rate this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, a 7.
