Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto Review
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Last book in the Halo trilogy
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 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?
This blew my expectations out of the water. It was amazing. It was such a good conclusion. The storyline was seriously epic. The characters were amazing as usual. I'm so sad this series is over but it couldn't have gone out with a bigger bang. Everything came together perfectly.
Bethany really surprised me in this. She was very strong. She was also very human. She was fighting for herself and the life she wanted to live. She never gave up on her religion but she made her choice and really stuck with it. I loved that she got a little time to be somewhat normal and happy before things fell apart. I have loved Xavier since the beginning. He's an amazing character. I love how strong he is. Also he's very loving and caring. He's one of those characters you wish were real. He's grown so much since the start. He did give me a heart attack on more than one occasion. Beth and Xavier had so many adorable moments. I loved every second. I'm so glad things worked out for them.
This had such an exciting plot. It was like a big game of cat and mouse. There was a lot of action. All of that made this impossible to put down. I had to know what was going to happen. There was some moments that were seriously torture. I was actually screaming out loud like a crazy person. I can honestly tell you that even with all the torture it was so worth it. I don't even think this review will do this book justice. In my opinion it was too amazing for words. This became my favorite book in the series. I know this series gets a lot of hate but I think just Heaven will make up for it. If you haven't read this series I highly, highly recommend. 5/5 stars
