Reseña del editor

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 - for ever - and face leaving the love of her life?

For readers who enjoyed the first two books, this one will be a treat. Bethany and Xavier have been working to stay together and keep their love alive despite all odds. When they decide to marry, the have crossed a line that no angel has crossed before. Bethany is in immediate danger and the book follows her attempts to remain with her love and stay alive. With the Sevens, a group of angels who hate the idea of Bethany and Xavier together, hot on her trail, Bethany must make quick decisions to remain on top.

The characters were so much fun in this book. They truly feel like real people; the only character who started to get annoying was Bethany. She defies heavenly law when she marries and then continues to put her friends in danger. She is more than a little whiny halfway through the book. However, a reader who enjoyed this book previously will likely not mind a few dramatics. Xavier is sweet in his constant love for Bethany. He sticks with his true love no matter the cost. Gabriel and Ivy displayed bravery and love when they decide to help Bethany in any way they can. However, it isn't really up to Bethany, she may be recalled and forced to leave Xavier.

Between the high action and desperate love, this book is sure to be a fast read despite it's long length. Heaven is recommended to young adult readers.

I'm sorry but I did not care for this final book in the series. It felt like Alexandra was just throwing everything she could think of into it and the continuity was lost. Also, there was way too much negativity in the heavenly realm.

We begin where HADES left off with Xavier and Beth having left graduation to go get married. They get married and immediately the Priest is killed for having married them since humans and angels are verboten. The heavenly police aka the seven are now after the two of them and they go on the run.

Angels killing innocent humans, Molly becoming a dominated puritanical female, Xavier being possessed and more just didn't work for me.

It just gets too congested from here on out. You may enjoy it so give it a try.

Reviewer: Me

Let me begin by saying I have not read the previous novels in the series, Halo and Hades. With that being said, I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion and that is what I intend to do, state my extreme love/hate relationship with Heaven and why I couldn't put the book down despite the various *eye roll* moments I had while indulging myself in this weird world of angels. I must also state that because I am going to briefly discuss religion it is not my intention to offend anyone's religious or moral beliefs.

Heaven is the story of Bethany an angel who is deeply (or should I say obsessively) in love with a mortal named Xavier whom she is sent to guard (at least that's how I took it seeing as I honestly don't know because I haven't read the previous novels). Somewhere along the way, the two fall madly in lust, I mean in love, and in this installment of the Halo series they decide to wed, taking vows before God in order to make their love official in his eyes. Over the course of the novel, several obstacles are thrown their way and Bethany and Xavier must prove that love does conquer all.

Now here is my issue with Heaven, there is a thin line between writing a novel which lightly touches on religion and writing a novel and interjecting your own beliefs into the narrative. I really enjoyed the overall story of Bethany and Xavier. However the deeper I dove into the wells of their love affair the angrier I became from all the preachy religious over and undertones.

Example #1:

"Have you no faith left at all?" my brother remarked in surprise.

"How can I, when God seems to have abandoned us?"

"That is when you need faith the most," Gabriel said. "Not when everything is going your way, not when you have much to be thankful for, but when there is darkness all around. He is always there, He is always watching, and one way or another He will set you on the right path." - (ARC page 214)

Example #2:

"Because the path of the righteous man was never supposed to be easy," I whispered. "Those who are chosen by the Lord are given a hard journey. The reward will come later. And if He is the merciful Father I know, we'll have eternal peace together. You just have to believe in Him. Believe in His plan and trust Him with your whole heart. I know it's hard but look at the proof you've been given through my siblings and me. Most people have to go off blind faith, but not you. You've been given proof." - (ARC page 295-296)

The vast majority of Heaven is written in this manner. In every chapter there is at least one paragraph devoted to letting the readers know if you do "a" and the results are "b" it doesn't matter if you were right or wrong as long as you have faith, repent, believe and trust wholeheartedly in the Lord. Now, let me state clearly that I am a Christian and I understand what Adornetto was trying to accomplish (or at least I think I do). After all, she is writing a book about angels so there has to be some sort of moral compass in there somewhere. Even if I believe everything she wrote about faith and God that does not mean I want to read about it and feel as though I need to learn some type of lesson about my faith on every page. And this is exactly how I felt.

I firmly believe I should never be pulled out of a story for any reason because it diminishes my overall enjoyment. And I really, really, really, liked both main characters and I even enjoyed all the side characters. But I just cannot move past the fact that Heaven spent so much time on preaching to me instead of sucking me into a captivating story. I should never be able to determine what an authors beliefs are unless I am reading Christian Fiction or something of the sort. I should never be made to feel as though if I don't agree with what the author is saying that my thoughts and feelings are wrong. It's ludicrous! And it's highly insulting. I am not even going to touch on the authors writing though I found her to be a little too wordy and use too many "tags" at the end of EVERY single instance of dialogue. Just know that it happens and it may be annoying to some readers.

Overall, Heaven rubbed me the wrong way but was also a great love story (see my dilemma). Had it not been for the copious amount of religion I may have scored this book at 4.5 or a 5. I think if Adornetto perfects her writing skills and can learn to master writing about religion without giving the readers Bible lessons she could write something extremely phenomenal. I recommend this novel to those of you who don't mind books with a ton of religious undertones, and characters with obsessive personalities. For everyone else, well if you read it you will see.

Since they first met it hadn't been easy for Bethany Church, an angel, and Xavier Woods, a mortal. Despite the warnings from others, Beth and Xavier's love couldn't be denied. Making a brave decision to marry, crossing the line and doing what no others have done, a group of angels, the Seven, were determined to make them pay for their actions.

It all started with my daughter wanting to purchase, HALO. I have to admit the cover was intriguing, along with the synopsis. She read and loved it. Next it was my turn. I fell in love with the characters and the storyline. We waited impatiently for the next to come out, HADES, and finally, HEAVEN.

If I had to pick my favorite between the three, I guess I'd have to say it's HADES, though the last half of HEAVEN is a close second (You can read my review for HALO and HADES on Amazon.). Overall I loved the trilogy. ALEXANDRA ADORNETTO is an amazing writer with a creative mind that produced an amazing storyline with three dimensional characters.

The first half of HEAVEN was a tad slow, but once you reach the middle it takes off. The slow pace was tolerable due to the wonderful writing. Having read the first two books in the trilogy, there was no way I wasn't finishing the third one.

I loved the surprises and twists HEAVEN took. I hadn't a clue how Xavier and Bethany's story would unfold, but I loved how MS. ADORNETTO played it out. I could never have imagined what the author would do with one of the other characters I love, Gabriel. I'm anticipating with excitement a story about Gabe and Molly.

I just finished the third book in the Halo series. While I felt like the story hooked you like the predecessors I felt like this book fell short and it should have been longer and as for the ending I would have tweaked or rewritten it. In Heaven it takes place after Bethany and Xavier graduated in Hades they're at Sweethearts and decide they want to get married. After Beth and Xavier get married the Grim Reaper kills Father Mel, the Priest that married them and he goes to Heaven. Gabriel and Ivy find out what happened and they aren't happy so they flee Venus Cove and set Bethany and Xavier up at college where they can't reveal their relationship or else these corupt angels The Sevens will find them and do anything to keep them apart. I loved that Molly was back in the book. The descriptions were excellent. There was the right blend of action and romance. But I felt like sometimes there was too much downtime in between the book. Then there were things that weren't explained or could have been done differently. -SPOILERS IF YOU HATE SPOILERS DON'T READ PAST THIS SENTANCE- Example 1: How did Jake Thorn come back? Gabriel killed Jake. I understand that Bethany called Jake by his former angel name out of desperation to get Lucifer out of Xaviers body. But its inconsistent because in the second book Hades Jake was killed in the end by Gabriel using The archangel Michaels sword which could kill angels and demons. Example 2: Since angels and demons don't have souls how Jake came back didn't make sense. Now unless Jake wasn't killed then I could understand he was summoned. Otherwise it didn't make sense. Also certain characters we heard about in Hades (Taylah, Hannah and Tucker) we never heard about them again. I felt like there should have been a happy ending for them after helping Beth in Hades. The ending was good but it was expected and you knew what the big sacrifice was going to be. I think Gabriel, Ivy and Molly could have been at the house rejocing at Beth and Xaviers happy ending. Also are Molly and Gabriel in a relationship now? I'm not trying to convince anyone to not read this book or hate it but if you're planning to read it just don't expect this to be some great epic ending. I still love her as an author even if this book wasn't the greatest. Hopefully Alexandra will write a fourth book to the series or she'll do a Halo spin off series.
