Halflings by Heather Burch


Split. After being inexplicably targeted by an evil intent on harming her at any cost, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the watchful guardianship of three mysterious young men who call themselves halflings. Sworn to defend her, misfits Mace, Raven, and Vine battle to keep Nikki safe while hiding their deepest secret---and the wings that come with. A growing attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. While she risks a broken heart, Mace and Raven could lose everything, including their souls. As the mysteries behind the boys' powers, as well as her role in a scientist's dark plan, unfold, Nikki is faced with choices that will affect the future of an entire race of heavenly beings, as well as the precarious equilibrium of the earthly world.

My Review:
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book sounds amazing, I know... I thought it was going to be a great book that would lead me on adventures untold, and even better it would have angels in it.  Unfortunately, I didn't find this book to be that great.  I actually didn't even finish it.  I made it to the 1/2 way point, and I stopped, because I just couldn't get into it. 

So here are my reasons why I didn't finish the book:

  1. The flow of the novel was stilted, and difficult to follow.  
  2. We know that Nikki is important, but really, why and what makes her so important isn't clear. Plus it is so irritating that you don't know that you just kind of stew waiting for them to reveal the big secret.
  3. This forbidden love turning you evil subject is kind of pissing me off!  What the heck?  must someone "lose their soul" to love someone?  
Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this book, and because of that, I cannot recommend it.  If you did enjoy this book, please let me know why.

Happy Reading!
