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

I read this last year, I know that I should post this immediately so all the books that I've read last year will be posted on this year. Damn I'm such a loser! >.<

Well back on my review, this book definitely brings me to another world. A world full of anguish, guilt, pain, and revenge. Hades, some people call it Hell. It was very dreadful as I imagined it, Alexandra Adornetto provides all the details that In only Hades can take place.

As Bethany and Xavier surpassed their first obstacle to Jake and his "people" and the acceptance of their relationship from Ivy and Gabriel, they've become more bonded and entwined on their emotions which made me felt so utterly good. Gabriel is still the focused and composed man or should I say Archangel, that stays on ensuring the solemnity and peacefulness of Venus Cove. He's the type of man that is fully concentrated on his tasks and takes devotion of it. Ivy, the gentlest seraphim takes on coordinating the church chores and activities to help the people be enlightened and closed to God.

I've never been more close to Hell as I imagined, but this book suddenly takes me in there. I felt that I was really inside of Hell that its so hard to stop my feelings of agitation everytime they just keep on moving forward and enjoy their sufferings. Most of all meeting the "Big Daddy", it was like seeing him in another figure which is like an ordinary human. It's was scary, to think that it just hit my conscience about repentance and sins in which people have a privilege of freedom to repent.

I just became more aware of what happens in Hell, not that I don't know it at all but I haven't read The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri that's why I somehow learned something on this book.

This book also shows deep affection an unconditional love of the lovers. Eventhough they are not physically present with each other, their hearts already do binds them.
