“Halflings” by Heather Burch

Nikki Youngblood is a happy girl; she goes to school, paints in her free time and practices karate. Then her life turns upside down when she is attacked by hell hounds in the forest. She is rescued by some mysterious beings whom she later finds out to be Halflings;half angel, half human. They don’t know why but they have been sent on a mission to protect her from all the harm that comes after the hell-hound attack. During the process though, Nikki becomes attached to her protectors, Mace Raven and Vine ( who just happen to be teenagers just like her). She feels her heart splitting in two between Raven and Mace; and still with so many attacks coming at her will Nikki survive? Will the halfings come through and figure what it is they have to do, and why Nikki has been targeted?

I figured this book would be amazing, something out of the ordinary, at least that is what I thought…it was okay but honestly it was nothing special, nothing new. I felt the whole story was rushed and I found that some of the character’s actions didn’t quite fit to their description,their character. For example Nikki is described as a very great girl who cares about others and would never betray those she cares about and yet she keeps hurts Mace throughout the whole book. I just don’t see how that fits, and that is just one example. The storyline wasn’t anything new; and we never even figure out why Nikki is targeted, which is the whole point of the story. Overall, it was just okay, I rate it 2.5 stars.
