Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto
Expected publication date: August 24, 2012
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Only sixteen when she started the series, Ally Adornetto knows how teen hearts beat, and this long-awaited conclusion is certain to be her most popular book yet.
Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.
The only way Bethany and Xavier can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?
Why I can't wait:
I know a lot of people didn't like the first book Halo but I absolutely adored it. Mostly because Beth and Xavier were so dang cute. I didn't like Hades as much because I missed Xavier but the ending made me insane. I am dying to know how the story ends for Beth, Xavier, Ivy, Gabriel and everyone else. Can I have an Xavier of my own? Please?
