Summary

Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels, Ivy, Bethany and Gabriel are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls for the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realise they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There’s a new kid in town and he’s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he’s after Beth. The angels and Xavier must work together to overcome the dark forces – but will Beth survive the battle?

Worst book I have ever listened to

What disappointed you about Halo?

The poor performance, the predictability of the story & cliches eg. Xavier Woods and his

Has Halo turned you off from other books in this genre?

This has definitely turned me off from other books in this genre and will not willingly read a story about angels as teenagers or from this author again

What didn’t you like about Alexandra Adornetto’s performance?

The faltering accent of the author/narrator was horrible and distracting, she kept falling between an Aussie & fake American accent eg.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment that I had wasted my time and money

Any additional comments?

Only read this if you don't mind fake american accents & like predictable characters in predictable storylines
