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:

I was excited to get this for review! The cover isn't as beautiful as the other debuts, but the story sure is good. I had to read it on my kindle app. Since I don't have a kindle and I hate reading on my laptop because it's so seriously -___- So I finally found a way to read the books on my iPod. It took me about 2 and a half days? I stayed up all night today, finishing it. It was so addicting, I could not put the book down. I love the plot and setting. This book is just great!

First Chapter: Nicole Youndblood, her nickname is Nikki was being chased by a pack of 'wolves'. She was running for her live. Raven, Mace, Vine, and Will are just looking at her in the distance trying to see when to come in to save her. These guys job is to protect Nikki, because that's their mission. The reason why they're protecting her is because she's special in some type of way. They don't understand why they have to protect her since she's human. They never did protect one before. Suddenly it was time to save her but Mace made a mistake by letting Nikki see his face. 

Halflings: What are halflings? They are angels. Wait heavenly angels or fallen angels? None the above! They are in the middle...or actually they aren't. They are half angel and half human. They don't live with their parents, never got to meet them. Every Halflings group has 3 angels and has a guardian which is a heavenly angel. Halflings was made by Hitler causing the Holocaust to happen.

Love Triangle:
It's between Raven, Mace, and Nikki. I think Nikki is perfect with Raven but he is a player though. Mace is just ehhh. I think Raven can be a more of a boyfriend to Nikki.

Yep! I loved the book. It's a 5/5! It's about to come out so check that out! :) Also tell me if you guys like what I'm doing with my reviews. I'm going to tell you about the first chapter then I'll make up some other topic to talk about :)
