Description

Heaven Help Her.

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier's love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can't keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon 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.

The story that Alexandra Adornetto built in her New York Times-bestselling debut, Halo, comes alive in action-packed and unexpected ways, as angels battle demons, and the power of love is put to the test.

Our customer reviews

I'm struggling a bit in figuring out how to write my review for Hades (Halo #2) by Alexandra Adornetto. It's because I enjoyed reading Halo, but this time around I'm not quite sure if I do or not. I have mixed feelings. I would rate this book around 3.5 to 4 Spades. Hades is fast past but at times in certain parts of the story it drags on. I felt that there was too much describing of EVERYTHING. From the surroundings, background, actions, hair color, how the person looks and sometimes it's of the same person where then it gets very repetitive. I understand it helps to give descriptions of things to help the reader to visualize the setting, but it was just getting way too much where it became redundant. There were some certain errors like having a gas pedal on a motorcycle that kind of got me because I felt common sense/research wasn't applied. BUT I'm reading from the ARC and I'm hoping that the hiccup (mistake) gets fixed for final print. As for the ending, it was a disappointment. I was kind of upset. It was like someone tore the last page from the book. It was too abrupt that it didn't leave the reader any last thoughts; no bits of meat to piece for the up coming novel. Just a THE END; like a movie getting cut off in mid sentence. What I did like that made me give Hades a 4 Spades is that the story was really engaging as long as you ignore the tedious descriptions and bits of error (I'm not talking about punctuation). I couldn't help myself from staying up late paging through until I got to the end. There were exciting moments in the book that gave me reason to go on to the next chapter, and there is more action going on in Hades than there was in Halo. All in all it was okay.show more
