When she wakes up in the hospital, she sees people with glowing eyes, halos and wings, and a stuffed giraffe is talking to her. She thinks that this is the result of her morphine drip at first, then a serious head trauma later when her drugs are taken away. But this is her new "normal." She is immediately learns that she is not safe, and the action takes off at a run from there.
I thought the storyline of this book was really interesting! I enjoyed the angels and the demon creatures and seeing how they all interacted.
The characters, whether good or bad, were all so neat. I loved them all because each and every one of them was so extreme with their personality traits. For example, Autumn was extremely boy crazy. At first I could not stop laughing at her narrative, because she reminds me of one of my friends. I mean, she uses words like "Yummilicious" and "Hubba bubba, yum" when thinking about the men! Then there was Castle, her guardian angel who took the tough-guy/love interest to the extreme.
Desmin, the Devils Spawn Minion, was hysterical; by far my favorite character in the book! He was so inappropriate, but so freaking funny! I loved that when he overate, he had trouble standing up and moving around. Example: "Desmin struggled to gain his feet, cursing his full belly and repeating whoa over and over again."
I also loved how the three main characters (Autumn, Desmin, and Castle) all interacted when they were together. For example, their banter around the breakfast table was adorable.
There were so many features of the story that I really enjoyed. Like the "modern" references to things like the Van Helsing movie with Hugh Jackman. I also loved the idea of halos turning colors depending on the angels moods. And the Catchel was so cool! I loved that the main character thought of it a Marry Poppins bag before she knew what it was.
Typically books of this nature, are serious and intense. This book tried to infuse a tremendous amount of humor, and tongue-in-cheek phrasing. The intent appears to be to take a deep and intense topic, and have a little fun with it. Unfortunately, I found it to be a little juvenile in the approach. Autumn is in her late 20's to early 30's, but when you read her words, she sounds more like a high school girl with all the naivety and hyper-exuberance a teenage girl might have. It made her character's ability to succeed in this endeavor much less believable. Add in our adorable Desminn with his wit and teenage boy sounding humor, and it was just difficult to take them seriously. The saving grace here was the character of her guardian angel Castle. He tended to be the more serious of the group, allowing you to believe they COULD actually succeed.
Even though the blurb for this book said it was the first in a series, I wasn't expecting the cliffhanger to be as big as it was. So much was left unresolved and unanswered. I would have expected some resolution to pieces of the story, while setting up for the next book in the series. You weren't just left hanging, it was as if you were pushed off that proverbial cliff.
If you like your paranormal mysteries on the lighthearted side, then "Halos" is a good fit for you. If you prefer a more serious approach, then probably not.
The story is based on the good vs evil but in a totally fresh way. Why do a halo even be crooked? Well I'm not gonna spoil that to you😀.
I can tell you that you want regret reading the book. And I'm quit sure your gonna fell in love with Desmin and his mischiefs.
