At twenty – an age when many young people are just starting out in their careers – Alexandra Adornetto is already a hugely successful international author. Since publishing her first book at fourteen, Alexandra has written five more bestsellers, moved to the United States, started university, and is now also pursuing an acting and modelling career in LA.
Heaven is the third and final book in the acclaimed Halo trilogy – one of the original angel romance novels published both in Australia and internationally. In this page-turning and eagerly anticipated conclusion to the series, angel Bethany and her mortal love Xavier are faced with their most daunting challenge yet – The Sevens, a military order of angels designed to maintain balance in the universe. These soldiers won’t stop until their job is done – capture the wayward angel and send her home.
Praise for Alexandra Adornetto’s Halo
‘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’ The New York Times Book Review
‘It’s remarkable how well-turned the language is, and how assured the plot, in this zippy and evocative young adult fantasy ’ The Age
‘Teenage wunderkind Alexandra Adornetto’s first foray into mass-market young adult fiction is a major achievement – commercial, sophisticated and hugely enjoyable’ Sun-Herald
