Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-The angelic (or in this case half angelic) YA invasion continues with this series opener. Nikki Youngblood is just an average 17-year-old, which means she's a black belt in karate, an intuitive artist whose work is already in a gallery, a science nerd, a motorcycle chick, and, of course, beautiful in an unconventional way. She is also being chased by assorted human and otherworldly bad guys (and hell hounds), possibly under the control of the mysterious Damon Vessler. Not to worry; a trio of super-hot blond guys-not angel or human but something sadly in between-has been tasked with keeping her safe. Halflings are the offspring of rebellious angels and human women. While they are allowed to fight on the side of good, they aren't given the possibility of a heavenly afterlife or even allowed to fall in love. No surprise that Good Boy Mace and Bad Boy Raven are both attracted to Nikki. Religion is addressed but isn't particularly intrusive; secondary characters are pretty stock (the ditzy BFF, the antisocial computer-nerd Halfling); and Nikki, despite her many talents, is more Bella than Katniss. Still, fans of the Romeo & Juliet model will enjoy, and the cliff from which readers are left hanging should entice them to return for Book 2.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"A well-written, thoroughly thought-out, and utterly addicting read. Burch's novel captivated me from the word go - and the hits kept on coming. Packed with action, Halflings is stocked with a feisty, likable cast. This hard-to-put-down novel kept me up late into the night and burrowed itself into my imagination." - Serena Chase USA TODAY

"Gobble up and seek more." - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY


"Burch has penned a great read with a beautiful and smart heroine, hot heroes and evil villains. You'll be entranced by the end of the first chapter. With action from the first page to the last, paranormal romance fans will most definitely enjoy this." - Meera Patel, RT BOOK REVIEW

Rumors of 'Hollywood options' are already buzzing through the blogosphere and a (free) illustrated e-book prequel is now available through several outlets. Combining those tasty details with the way the novel's ending longs for the September 2012 sequel, well … the word 'franchise' certainly comes to mind. I can't say I object. Burch may be riding the coattails of a mainstream trend, but she's giving the fashion a distinctly fresh cut that will allow it to stand out on the angelic romance runway. I'm excited to watch this series take flight – and curious to see where the next book will take what's sure to become a devoted following. Packed with action, Halflings is stocked with a feisty, likable cast and a fantastically impossible love-triangle that made my heart flutter, race and sigh. This hard-to-put-down novel kept me up late into the night and burrowed itself into my imagination. (USA Today - Happy Ever After Blog (Serena Chase))

RT Rating: FOUR STARS 'Burch has penned a great read with a beautiful and smart heroine, hot heroes and evil villains. You’ll be up late reading this paranormal romance, and you’ll be entranced by the end of the first chapter. With action from the first page to the last, paranormal romance fans will most definitely enjoy this.' (Romantic Times)

'...gobble up, and seek more.' (Publishers Weekly)
