YA review: Hades

Heaven Help Her.

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier’s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well.

The story that Alexandra Adornetto built in her New York Times-bestselling debut, Halo, comes alive in action-packed and unexpected ways, as angels battle demons, and the power of love is put to the test. (goodreads)

My thoughts...This is the second book by the young, but talented Alexandra Adornetto. If you have not read Halo yet, you can read my review here. In this second installment, I could see a lot of growth in the author. The book seems more focused, the action comes quicker, and the characters are more developed.

Readers will enjoy following Bethany in her adventure. Jake Thorn, gone but not forgotten, makes a startling appearance. Parts of the story were so shocking that it made me want to run to church. Some of the characters did some things that left me shaking my head, but they are young adults left in some pretty intense situations. Overall, I really enjoyed Hades. I am looking forward to more in this series.
