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?
Okay, Okay. You've got me. I only read Halo, because I fell undesirably in love with the cover. It's just really beautiful. And her wings? No words! At least, the book wasn't a miss though. I really enjoyed reading it. Cute angelic love!
In Halo, there's Bethany. She's an angel and so are her sister Ivy and brother Gabriel. They've been sent on Earth on a mission. However, there's some disturbance along the way. Bethany falls in love. Something that's prohibited as she falls in love with a human.
As you can tell, Halo mainly revolves around the romance element. It focuses on Bethany and the guy she likes (nope I'm not telling you the name, no spoilers people!) or more specifically loves. It's quite cute I must admit. Especially reading about how their 'relationship' develops and the many challenges they nee to face.
But that's not the thing that really grabbed me. It's another side romance that was introduced in Halo that I was more interested in. Gabriel's admirer. Gabriel's is a very serious and religious sort of guy. He's not into the romance thing at all. With the whole angel thing and all. So it's really cute seeing someone pine over him, trying to impress him and get his attention. Just whatever she can do.
Halo really has me pining for the next book. I hope Hades is just as good. I'm eager to see how everything goes with Bethany but mostly Gabriel. Cannot wait!
