Book Review ~ Halo

Book: Halo
Author: Alexandra Adornetto
Rating: 2
Cover: 3.5

Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels, Ivy, Bethany and Gabriel, are sent from Heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness. They work hard to conceal there true identity and most of all their wings.

But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls for the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to head when the angels realise they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There’s a new kid in town and he’s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all he’s after Beth.

The angels and Xavier must work together to overcome the dark forces but will Beth survive the battle?

When I read this book I had my doubts about the book for two reasons,
  1. the blurb basically tells you the whole story
  2. the author is 19?

Despite this I went ahead and purchased the book, it took me along time to get through it and it wasn’t very good at all. The writing style is good and the plot has potential but the writer dragged on everything and made things as boring as possible. Not only was the book boring but I personally, rely on characters relationships to make the book interesting, and none of the relationships were exciting or attracting.

 This is one of the very few books in which I do not recommend. I suggest to either not read it, or simply borrow it from a friends or your local library.

  1. I've heard very mixed reviews on this book. It sounds like the author needs to let her writing skills mature a little more.

    Thanks for the review.
