“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!
This week, I’m waiting on Halo by Alexandra Adornetto.
“Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There’s a new kid in town and he’s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he’s after Beth.”
— Description from Goodreads
I am so excited to read this story. It sounds really interesting, and kind of reminds me of the premise of City of Angels. That movie made me cry so much.
Halo by Alexandra Adornetto will be released Aug. 31, 2010.
What are you waiting on this week?
