Synopsis:After being inexplicably targeted by an evil intent on harming her at any cost, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the watchful guardianship of three mysterious young men who call themselves halflings. Sworn to defend her, misfits Mace, Raven, and Vine battle to keep Nikki safe while hiding their deepest secret—and the wings that come with.
A growing attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. While she risks a broken heart, Mace and Raven could lose everything, including their souls. As the mysteries behind the boys’ powers, as well as her role in a scientist’s dark plan, unfold, Nikki is faced with choices that will affect the future of an entire race of heavenly beings, as well as the precarious equilibrium of the earthly world.
Cover: A pretty decent cover.Are those wings? I loved the red hue
Book:I was in the mood for an angel book thus requested it on netgalley.Sad it was disappointing.The religious undertones were not a problem , the characters were.
I always try to finish a book and finishing this one was grueling.The love triangle was annoying. I tried not to be a cynic while reading the reading romance and ended up laughing.[ i'm rarely cynical] I tried to like it but sadly no success.
The MC is supposed to be an rocking kick butting heroine but was in fact one the whiny bunch. Which boy am i going to choose, which "brother".
Yeah falling in love is forbiden and is dangerous for there souls . Gimme a break. I do have to say the youngest "brother" is the best of the bunch and the funniest.Really he is a Hoot.
The prologue was freaking amazing , exiting. A chase. Nikki is being chased by hell hounds.And then the "brothers" appear . The halflings. WHY,WHY,WHY could the rest not exceed the prologue.The rest felt like reading a textbook, the prologue excluded.Flat and boring
A couple of people loved.Sad i did not. I read raving reviews. If you are interested.Give it a try.Maybe you are the one that will love it.
