Even the love of her boyfriend, Xavier Woods, and her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep the angel Bethany Church from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly her loved ones as well. Can he be trusted in this wager? And what does Jake have Xavier believing about Beth’s fate that may result in an act of betrayal that will leave Bethany - and readers - wondering if Xavier is so good after all?

“Her [Adornetto’s] dialogue feels fresh and real, pulled from the mouths of her peers without any cultural markers necessary to prove relevance... If it were not for young adult readers like her, the Y.A. boom never would have happened and publishing would be much gloomier.” (The New York Times Book Review)
"A compelling novel of good and evil that will find an audience among girls who can’t get enough of otherworldly characters and situations and heart-wrenching romance.” (School Library Journal
I am a voracious reader who enjoys the YA, Paranormal, Romance, Business and Personal Development genres. Look out for my reviews!
This is a great read for teens - both sexes - who enjoy roller coaster adventure, crossed with rom-com (romantic comedy) with a good dose or religion and theology thrown in to season the story. You will laugh, shed a tear and even hold your breath throughout this book.
Jake Thorne, the hellish antagonist of the first two books in the series brings
It's always a treat to have an author record his/her own audio book, allowing the story to enjoy the conviction of its creator. Adornetto puts her shrill voice to good use, keeping her numerous characters' tones, personalities and demeanours well differentiated throughout an engaging 13-hour performance.
This book was extremely entertaining, and while it was emotional in spots, I mostly hooted with laughter throughout. With its more positive storyline and the right acting talent, I can easily see The Halo Trilogy eclipsing Twilight as the next big graphic novel turned movie franchise.
I was fortunate enough to read Halo before Hades - I recommend this before moving on to this second book in the series. Fabulous book!
