‘Halo’ by Alexandra Adornetto is a fantastic novel about Courage, Danger and Forbidden Love. In the small town of Venus cove, three angels are sent to watch over the town, to keep it safe from the works of evil. Ivy and Gabriel are experienced earth comers, but Bethany is new to all this. And because of this she meets the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. They fall in love instantly. But trouble soon arrives. There’s a new kid in town, Jake. He’s devilishly striking, worst of all he’s targeting Bethany. Will Ivy and Gabriel along with Xavier be able to save Bethany in time? Or will evil have one more victory? ‘Halo’ is a pocket of emotion with Love, hatred and laughter. If you love a good love story with that little extra hint of action, this would definitely be the book for you. After you read this you’ll be defiantly wanting more, good thing Halo is part of a Trilogy. With ‘Hades’ as the second book and ‘Heaven’ as its last. ‘Halo’ was deemed in the ‘50 books you can’t put down’ list, you will definitely see why when you read this amazing piece of work by Alexandra Adornetto.

I feel in love with this book from the beginning and followed it through all the way to the end of the series. The characters are nothing but lovable (even the bad guy was attractive). Alexandra Adornetto is such a good writer and hold a place on my favourite author list!
