A small town is touched by angels; a powerful, forbidden romance forms, and intrigue and action ensue as the Dark Forces resist the angels influence, in the first book of Alexandra Adornetto's heartfelt YA Halo Trilogy.
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?
Junior angel Bethany, "created only seventeen mortal years ago," has accompanied senior angels Gabriel and Ivy on a mission to Earth, the exact nature of which is yet to be seen. While awaiting events, Bethany attends high school and quickly acquires a best friend and a boyfriend, though she knows she ought to remain focused on her angelic mission. Much of the book details Bethany and Xavier's travails as their Romeo and Juliet relationship develops; it is not until the end that

A hormone driven angel? Come on?!? I've always liked the idea of a fallen angel who fell cause they fell in love; I'm sorry God, but that is not the worst reason (or bad) to fall. A naive angel who knows nothing about human emotions and human toys, I could agree that the story may be plausible. Can't stand the inconsistency in the story, is Beth an angel or a teenager? Is she young yet still an angel, supposedly good and wise and all that with certain power etc etc? Or is she just a hormonal teen girl adopted by a family of angels? What's with the whole family ability to heal but Xavier got a concussion and have to "conveniently" miss prom, while another girl in bad auto accident in front of the whole student bodies, with proof of her car in a bad shape and "supposedly" bloody from the fatal injuries she sustained, discreetly healed? Concussion vs mangled bloody body...which do you think is more noticeable? What is with bro and sis angels who just stood by watching their sister commit the forbidden? If it's forbidden and they knew about it from the beginning, why just letting it happen? Sorry but it just a contradiction, the story goes on and on about how their love is forbidden and punishable by God knows what kind of wrath, yet they could continue on like it's only a couple teens who keep sneaking out after being grounded? Well, which one is it??? I kept waiting for the story to get exciting, I though maybe in every chapter 'this is it, gonna be the end of the line or those two love birds, the wrath of heaven gonna come upon them, they're gonna get separated and they both have to find ways to be together again!". Nope, it was unexpected, but kinda fall flat. Don't think I'd buy the next book, I'd gate to find myself skipping sentences and paragraphs.
Wheres master chief when u need him, not in this halo.
