Xavier and Bethany’s “love” was what really got me. I’ll continue this book once giant unicorns poop out chocolate-flavored rainbows from the sky while wearing tutus and singing “Born This Trilofy. I could go on. She could not do anything by herself, she constantly clung to Xavier and thought about him when they were apart for 5 minutes. So I’m not going to tear into it and lose my temper and imagine that with each punchy sentence and angry jab, I’m stabbing the author in the face.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Whatever will I do?!? And even then, the ending was just about rescuing Bethany and saving the day or some garbage. But Bethany really takes the cake. His double standards are annoying, too – he’s allowed to be protective of Bethany, but she has no say about anything that happens to him and isn’t justified in being worried when he’s actually injured.

If she had a good editor, a good pages could have been cut from this garbage. I got this from the villain. But eventually as in after eons on Earth, not the very first day they arrive.

All the angels, the boyfriend, any relevant character was white. The cover art is lovely, Adornetto, and I really like how you managed to get all the print onto the page!

And everyone else in the school is broken up into some over done cliched “group” type I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. Eventually some real conflict shows aornetto, several hundred pages too late to make the book any good, but that’s okay; as the author makes clear several times when she gets up on her soapbox, this book wasn’t written to have any sort of artistic merit!

Halo (Halo, #1) by Alexandra Adornetto
