Halflings by Heather Burch

Genre:  YA Paranormal Romance
Halflings, Book 1
Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads

Description (taken from Goodreads):
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.

So imagine a love triangle (it's easy to imagine).  And right off the bat, you've already picked which one you like.  And then the other one comes into the picture, and you get warm feelings for him as well.  And then we go back to guy number one, and the biggest ice storm comes about (and you wonder why on earth you liked him better).  And then the same happens for number two.  The author does a really good job at making you love/hate both Mace and Raven.

But back to why Nikki is being targeted in the first place.  Some clues are hinted at in the book.  But you're left guessing the whole way through.  Which means you'll be digging your nose into book two.

Would I recommend this book?  If you like love triangles and angels, sure.  I found the romance fun (even though I detest romantic triangles - for the most part).  It was a literally "love me, now hate me" relationship (think of those Old Spice commercials that completely leave you disoriented).

Thanks goes to Zondervan Publishing and Netgalley for providing me a review copy of this book.

  1. I've had this book on my TBR list for a little while and been trying to make myself read it. Your review is nice and concise. It has made me want to read the book, while providing realistic expectations that it may not blow me away. Thanks!
