Blurb: Three angels are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, their superhuman powers, and their wings. Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and they are unable to resist their attraction to each other. But the angels’ mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?
Review: When a friend picked this off our school library shelves and begged me to read it, I assumed that it would be like any other angel book in existence but my friend was 100% sure that it wouldn’t be. True to my friend’s word, it isn’t like every other angel book you’ve ever heard/seen/read and due to that, I quite enjoyed it.

Of course, there were moments where I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at what was happening. And while the romance was sweet, at time, I found it unbelievable and maybe even a little dull. The novel could certainly have done with some more action as it led up to the big problem scene and less about Prom.

All in all, Halo was quite enjoyable and I do plan on finding the sequel sometime in the future.


  1. This book is really nice! Hades (the sequel) is a good book as well. :)

  2. Yeah, Hopefully I will get around to reading it soon.
