Publisher's Summary

Three angels - Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human - are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments.

Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them. Gabriel and Ivy do everything in their power to intervene, but the bond between Xavier and Bethany seems too strong.

The angels’ mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?

What the Critics Say

“The 17-year-old author’s angel mythology is solid . . . there never seem to be enough lengthy tomes to satisfy the legions of paranormal-romance fans, and this first title of a planned trilogy fits the bill.” (Booklist)

    I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)

    "Love Conquers All... Twilight for Christian teens"

    There are a few problems with this story that was about it get it rated 3 stars but then I read that the author was 17 years old. For a someone so young, she pulled it off. So I split this into two reviews to be honest about the book.

    For Audience A: older kids and young teens or moms looking for something their kids can read. This is a lovely story about an angel who falls in love with a boy... without falling. It's cute, and it's guarded enough that it touches on subjects like sex but doesn't show any. Not much fowl language - I'd definately give this to my 13 year old neice.

    For Audience B: anyone over 16 looking for a Twilight substitue. This is Twilight with wings... even down to the glittery pale skin. The plot is simple and the characters are a bit shallow... their course is too easy. I find it hard to believe that an angel without free will can so easily ignore a mission and do things she shouldn't- like fall in love with a human. There should be consequences but there are none. It bothered me that one of the angels was the archangel Gabriel. Like he had nothing better to do than go live as a music teacher in a high school. If it were another angel I wouldn't have minded. I also find it hard to believe that angels land in an area and live undercover to watch humans... that ruins the concept of guardian angels who do just that. It also bothered me that they did nothing until the deus ex machina of an ending.

    For both audiences, please be aware of the Christian aspect of this book. It's not preachy, but prayers and talks about God do happen. Personally I think current authors trying to pull off a story about angels and keeping religion out of it seem a bit foolish, so this was okay with me. I know if I ran into an angel, fallen or not, I'd be pelting them with questions about Heaven, Hell, creation and everything.

    The author read this herself. She did a good job, but I'd rather someone else do it unless the book is a biography.

    "Enjoyable"

    This is a simple book. Its, as others have said, Twilight with angles instead of Vampires. The main character, Bethany, seems far too clueless and dependent on her human boyfriend. Overall I did enjoy it. Nice fantasy world to escape to for a few hours while I was at work. Once I found out that the author was only 17 when she wrote this book everything made more sense. Lol. Author is also the narrator, and I think she did a very good job. Her voice was enjoyable.

    "Loved it!"

    A beautiful and sweet love story, and I just couldn't stop listening to it! I can't wait for the next book. Alexandra Adornetto did a great job as the narrator.

    "HALO"

    This was so amazing that I could not sleep until I finished it. It held me captive and it was a beautiful love story that left me wanting more. I can't wait for the sequel, its going to drive me crazy having to wait so long.

    Story
    "Suprisingly good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes I would specially for teenagers , because the love story is so cute and I liked the way the story kept the relationship clean without the complication of physical attachment


    What did you like best about this story?

    well, I liked many aspects of the story .. specially the relation between her and Molly , though she loved Xavier she didn't sell her friend for anything


    Which character – as performed by Alexandra Adornetto – was your favorite?

    Xavier and Gabriel were the best performed characters by the author


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Xavier waited for Bethany in the cinema though she came very late .. I fell in love with him there


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised when I saw all the bad reviews on this series and specially this book , I found it entertaining and good I didn't feel bored and the storyline kept me wanting for more .. thank you so much

    "Be Prepared for Whining"
    Would you try another book from Alexandra Adornetto and/or Alexandra Adornetto?

    No.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    She shouldn't have read the book herself. Her voice is unpleasant and grating.


    What didn’t you like about Alexandra Adornetto’s performance?

    Her voice. She had such a whiny childish tone and I couldn't listen to it for very long. Turned me off to the rest of the series.


    Do you think Halo needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I didn't like this one.

    "almost like mortals"

    I had heard some bad reviews on this book but I had to find out for myself. I loved the story. It was wonderful to listen to. The narrator did an excellent job and she had such a delightful, easy to listen to voice. The story was more for the teenage genre, yet its still an audio book for any age.I found I couldn't stop listening and I had to find out what would happen next. The story takes three angels from there home in heaven to the mortal world of earth. The angels entire lives had to change by going to school,work, and everything that humans had to do. Danger lurks and it takes some time before it shows and the angels must yield from danger or face it head on. Meanwhile Bethany,the youngest angel finds love with Xavier and struggles without her feelings and mortality, thinking of becoming mortal because she never wants to be taken away from Xavier. Will their love endanger them all or will it save them all? I loved the book. I thought it was another different take on books written by about angels. If you love books with angels then I highly recommend this audio book.
