Halo, by 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? (Summary from Amazon.com)

Halo is about this angel that comes with her sister and brother from heaven to save the world. Her sister is a healer, and her brother is an ark angel. No one can find out they're angels, but that may become a bit complicated when she gets feelings for a boy. Her friends are what we would call the "popular crowd "--they're sometimes a good influence and sometimes a bad influence. It's kind of interesting when they're bad influences. Bethany is learning what humans are like even though she's been studying them for all of her life.

Angels are more interesting the most people think: they can never run out of energy, they excel in everything, and they don't have any belly buttons. Alexandra Adornetto is a great author. The book is full of suspense and romance, with a bit of comedy wrapped in. She has a great writing style and is very creative. When she is describing a suspenseful moment she doesn't forget to describe the surroundings. I loved the book and I couldn't put it down.

I thought Halo was wonderful because there was hardly a moment when Bethany wasn't either trying to figure something out or in danger. I had so much fun trying to guess what was going to happen next.

Some bad things were that I had a easy time guessing what was going to happen. This book is also kind of big, and sometimes a big book intimidates people who don't have too much free time.

Other than those little things, I love this book.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 chocolate bars.

This book is for 13 or older.
