Aside from its completely gorgeous and angelic cover, Halo by Alexandra Adornetto was a beautifully written YA fiction novel. It features a group of 3 angels (who are also siblings). These angels, Gabriel, Bethany, and Ivy are sent on a mission to help the world from falling under the influence of darkness. While doing so, they must also conceal themselves and blend in with all mortals, while avoiding noticeable human contact. But Bethany, the youngest and most naive, meets Xavier Woods, and cannot resist the almost instant attraction between them. As Gabriel and Ivy attempt to intervene and break them apart, they soon discover that the attraction is too powerful to extinguish. Later in the novel, the threat of the dark forces increases and Bethany, Ivy, and Gabriel have to focus their attention on saving the entire town from evil.
Halo can be described as a "twisted love triangle." It is written with such poise and character. Bethany and Xavier are both very relatable and fantastic characters. Alexandra Adornetto's debut American novel gets a 5 out of 5.
Keep a look out for the sequel, Hades.
