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.
