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.

Review quote

"Teenage author Adornetto's U.S. debut shows an impressive command of language... The fantasy is sweet and enjoyable." --Publishers Weekly on Halo

"These angels are the optimistic, hope-filled cousins of the tormented fallen angels in other paranormal romances . . . . Xavier is gorgeous, honorable and so protective of Bethany that you'll be crushing on him after the first chapter." --Justine magazine on Halo

"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 on Halo

"This is the IT book of the year in my opinion." --Moonlight Book Reviews blog on Halo

"I can now say I have a character crush on Xavier . . . . Teen romance fans will lap this one up like melted chocolate." --YA Addict blog on Halo

"I thought Halo was very well-written and was very impressed to learn that the author is only seventeen years old!" --The Book Vault blog on Halo

"I absolutely loved this book. Absolutely. Loved. It." --The Ninja Librarian blog on Halo

"Halo is an excellent book that makes you think about angels and their role on Earth." --Chick Loves Lit blog on Halo

"Often, I found myself closing my eyes, picturing the exact moment, feeling as though I could reach out to Bethany or grab Xavier in a sweet embrace . . . . A daringly palpable story that's rich with beautiful and raw details, Halo is addictive, passionate and coarse with vibrancy." --Book-crazy.com on Halo

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
