First in Series
Review: Halo is so different from most of the angel series that are out now, like Hush Hush and Fallen. They both take more of a dark side to angels. Halo changed up this pattern drastically with its guardian angels and love story. And that’s what Halo was a love story, a stunning and incredible love story.
One my favorite kind of books to read, (maybe my overall favorite) are love stories. The romance between Bethany and Xavier was perfect, and that’s the only way I can think to describe it. You have the instant attraction and maybe even love at first sight. As the book progressed Bethany tried to fight her feelings, because Angels can’t fall in love with humans. It’s not part of the plan to keep the town safe.
If you don’t like romance stories you probably won’t like most of Halo. I hate to say this, but it’s true. As much I would love to tell everyone to go read Halo NOW. I know not everyone is going to fall in love with it like I did. The first three fourths is the romance and foreshadowing (lots and lots of small foreshadowing). It focuses on Bethany and Xavier creating a relationship. It doesn’t just pop out of nowhere which is one of the reasons I loved it so much. It makes the story so much more believable. If you looking for an intense paranormal book with romance thrown in you might want to look somewhere else.
BUT if you do love a great romance story (Ex. Sarah Dessen), read this. You won’t regret it. Alexandra Adornetto has created the cutest couple in history. I would really like my own Xavier (he is so sweet and amazing). I’m going to stop my gushing here, and let you start reading Halo.
