okay, for me, it was horribly boring. this book talks about the old fashion plot (angel goes to earth, angel falls in love, angel is discovered, blah blah blah.)and the author's descriptive was very well done, but this book in the beginning was not bad, but all it talks about the main character( Bethany) adjusting to human life. but i mean angels are NOT dumb, right? but it takes like a MONTH! to adjust. the middle was really boring. and i have to skip chapters! so that i can read. i never finish the book because it is so boring that i just cant read it anymore. i rather read Percy Jackson series(duh?) and i must agree with izzyb14. (2 comments below) so if u don't like romance, DON'T read it.

An amazing read that I would definitely consider picking up again. The characters are described so vividly, it almost seems as if they are real. There was never a slow part in the plot, it was filled to the brim in excitement and action. It was pretty predictable though, other than that I think this is a great recomendation for teens looking for a romance/ action novel.

I love Beth and Xavier as a couple. Overall this book was great! The ending might have been a bit too rushed. I was surprised that Beth's first friend is someone who would be considered to be popular. I can't wait to see what happens in the next one, Hades.

I had to read this book again! I love this book and the main character. She is different from most paranormal fiction books I read, but I love her all the same. You have to read Alexandra's other book Hades; which is the book after this one.

I love this book!

This is my favorite book ever.

Halo follows Bethany who arrives in a small town with older angels Gabriel and Ivy to fight the evil forces which have invaded. When Bethany arrives in town everything is new and exciting to her. She's never been human before so everything from clothes to ice cream is a new experience. When she's enrolled in school she just hopes to make a friend. She ends up falling for Xavier, a mortal boy putting herself at great risk. Later there is an introduction of a dangerous force to the town and the risk it presents both to her and to the town as a whole

A carved wooden box drew my attention. It looked out of place amid the boyish belongings. I pulled it forward and slowly opened the lid. Inside, the box was lined with red satin. In the center lay a single white feather. I recognized immediately as the one Xavier had found in his car after our first date. I knew he would keep it forever. - Bethany, pg. 484
