Jake Thorn and his demons have been banished and Xavier and Bethany settle down to resume a normal life. But on the night of Halloween, a childish prank goes terribly wrong and Jake is summoned back to the sleepy town of Venus Cove. Bethany is deceived and like the mythical Persephone she finds herself dragged into the nightmarish underworld of Hades.
While the angels call on higher powers to help recover Bethany, Hell decides to play dirty and goes after the one thing she loves more than anything. But to spare Xavier′s life, Bethany must make the ultimate sacrifice.
Will she make a deal with the Devil? And what will happen to an angel in Hell?
Praise for HALO:
′This is the first book of a trilogy. The next installment is Hades. Look for it. Doubtless it will be another winner′
NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
′Adornetto′s dialogue feels fresh and real, without any need to prove relevance ... If it were not for young adult readers like her, the YA boom never would have happened and publishing would be much gloomier′
