Buzzworthy Books: Halo by Alexandra Adornetto

You’ve probably heard about some great fallen angel stories in YA lit these days (one of the most notable would be Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush). But there’s a new YA book about an actual angel, who isn’t fallen — but is just visiting Earth. The only problem? She’s not supposed to reveal herself … and falling in love with a human is probably a bad idea, too.

We’re really excited to check out Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, and this new book trailer from MacMillan makes us even more excited to go pick up a copy:

You can learn more about Alexandra & Halo on MacMillan’s website. Meanwhile, here is the official book synopsis:

Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces.

Is love a great enough power against evil?

Alexandra Adornetto was fourteen when she published her first book, The Shadow Thief, in Australia. The daughter of two English teachers, she admits to being a compulsive book buyer who has run out of shelf space, and now stacks her reading “in wobbly piles on my bedroom floor.” Alex lives in Melbourne, Australia; Halo marks her U.S. debut.

    1. i totally agree with you.. it was such a good book and i enjoyed it so much.. i even read it twice.. i’m also excited for the next two books.. 🙂

  3. Halo was a really good book. it was a bit slow paced but then i was patient enough to still enjoy it. the romance was a little fast paced. but honestly, i really think that it’s one of the best books i have ever read. i enjoyed Bethany’s innocence and naivety. and i fell in love with Xavier’s kindness and protectiveness. such a perfect guy. and i was a bit intrigued by the ending i can’t wait to read Hades (the next book). i will surely be the first ones to buy it’s sequels!
