Hades (Halo #2)

Hades (Halo, #2)Title: Hades (Halo #2)
Author:Alexandra Adornetto
Rating: 4/5
SummaryHeaven 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.
Hades, sequel to Halo, was by far much better than its predecessor. Reasons why: The action happens much sooner and throughout the story. The descriptions are more in depth due to the character actually having had more time on Earth and hence less naïve and yet… still very naïve in most parts of the book. But she’s an angel after all, a young one at that, do you actually want a young angel to be all worldly and not be innocently cute? Of course not. 
My Thoughts: 
The story goal is about the difference between true love and object idolization. Jake treated Beth like a pretty trinket he get to show off and Xavier valiantly goes in search to save her making the statement absence makes the heart grow fonder.
The ending gives a glimpse into a third book where they will yet again go through trials to prove their love and that it is stronger than any force they encounter.
The story though very cliché at times was an enjoyable easy read about how you can’t trust evil and love knows no bounds.
