Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone--especially herself--from the Dark Forces.
Is love a great enough power against evil?
PRAISE FOR HALO
"Her [Adornetto's] dialogue feels fresh and real, pulled from the mouths of her peers without any cultural markers necessary to prove relevance. . . . If it were not for young adult readers like her, the Y.A. boom never would have happened and publishing would be much gloomier." The New York Times Book Review
"These angels are the optimistic, hope-filled cousins of the tormented fallen angels in other paranormal romances. . . . Xavier is gorgeous, honorable and so protective of Bethany that you'll be crushing on him after the first chapter.

I actually have this book on my to-do list. The cover is just beautiful in my opinion. If you liked this one too, you might want to check out Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly or Unearthly by Cynthia Hand.
Oh, and I had to look into it. The third book is called Heaven and it's out on August 21st.
