My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that offers you the great opportunity to learn about new books coming out and what's whetting people's appetite in world of fiction--particularly that of the young adult world. It was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I've chosen Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto. It's the third and final book in the Halo series. A lot of people have a love-hate relationship with this series--feeling strongly one way or the other. I totally loved Halo, liked the second book, Hades and can't wait to see how it all ends in Heaven. Check out the blurb...

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?




Has anyone else read this series? What did you think of it?

Heaven releases August 21, 2012 by Feiwell & Friends (McMillan).
