Hades (Halo #2) By Alexandra Adornetto Review


Jake Thorn and his demons have been banished and Xavier and Bethany settle down to resume a normal life. But on the night of Halloween, a childish prank goes terribly wrong and Jake is summoned back to the sleepy town of Venus Cove. Bethany is deceived and like the mythical Persephone she finds herself dragged into the nightmarish underworld of Hades.

While the angels call on higher powers to help recover Bethany, Hell decides to play dirty and goes after the one thing she loves more than anything. But to spare Xavier′s life, Bethany must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Will she make a deal with the Devil? And what will happen to an angel in Hell?


Jake Thorn is back, and manages to trick the angelic Bethany into getting on his motorcycle, where she’s unknowingly in for a one-way trip on the highway to Hell or as Jake prefers it "HADES". The story starts off pretty innocently but at a Halloween party when a game played for fun turns out...well...not so funny anymore it releases the demon that Gabriel & Ivy had banished to the pits of hell. That's right people Jake Thorn is back with a bang!

 Jake practically kidnaps Bethany with the intention of making her his bride as well as the princess of Hades which in turn has unleashed a war between Heaven & Hell which will result in the form of Apocalypse. Although after he brings Bethany to his home i.e hell...she still doesn't lose faith and hopes that her family will come to her rescue.

 We also get to meet the "Big Daddy" AKA Lucifer as well as the Archangel Micheal in this book. The description of the nunnery and the nun who has been possessed was both frightening and intriguing.

The further you get to the end of the novel the pace quickens and the drama over takes. As a reader you are on the edge of your seat. Overall I'd say this book left me interested enough to find out how the story yes I am on my way to read Heaven i.e the third & final book in this trilogy.
