Description

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 motor- cycle 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. Something happened - something I could never have imagined. It was so unfathomable, I felt nothing but a sickening feeling that seemed to come from my core and spread like poison through my body. The highway defied gravity and suddenly reared up in front of us. A deep jagged crack appeared in its center. The highway was splitting open. The crack widened like a hungry cavernous mouth, waiting to swallow us up. The wind that whipped my face grew warmer, and steam rose from the broken asphalt. I knew instinctively what it was from the feeling of hollow emptiness that emanated from it. It was a gateway to Hell, and we were heading straight toward it.

Professional reviews

"Young Australian author Alexandra Adornetto delivers the second book in her trilogy that centers around Bethany Church, an angel sent from heaven to live among mortals. Since she wrote and recorded the book when she was still a teen herself, Adornetto has an obvious youthful quality to her voice that is appropriate for her adolescent heroine. In this installment Bethany finds herself trapped in hell and struggling to find a way out. Adornetto does an admirable job when faced with the challenge of portraying characters as diverse as the Archangel Michael and Lucifer himself. While not essential to understanding the plot, listening to the first book in the trilogy, HALO, may make this a more enjoyable listen. M.D. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
