Title & Author: Halflings by Heather Burch
Short summary: This story is about an average teen who turns out to be special. Nikki thinks she is only dreaming when ‘hot’ half angels save her life more than once. She doesn’t believe they are half angels at first.
What I liked about the story: I like how the story switches people without warning and how they use someone normal to be a very special person. Nikki falls in love but is not allowed and can get in serious trouble. I was mad when my mom stopped me from reading before I was finished.
What I liked about the writing: I like how the author is careful not to give anything away in the context.
Review by Miki, age 10
Summary 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 their earthly mission, 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.
