Bethany Church believes so- after all, the love of her angel siblings and her boyfriend Xavier saved her from the clutches of hell itself.

But when Jake Thorn returns to town, determined to take Beth away with him, it seems he may be able to destroy everything she cares about.

Will Jake's actions shatter Beth's faith in love? Or can she overcome heartache and betrayal to fulfil her role on Earth?
I couldn't wait for Hades to come out as I enjoyed the first one so much so when it finally came out I just had to read it.

In Hades we start of with Beth and Xavier happily ever after or so it seems...

When Beth gets roped into doing a seance all hell breaks loose literally as we meet Jake again. Although when Beth first sees him it is when he has tricked her into believing he was someone else and then tricks her into Hades.

I really felt sorry for both Beth and Xavier for most of this book as it just shows how strong their love for one another is. I also occasionally felt sorry for Jake but I guess I am just as gullible as Beth!

We get to meet some new characters in this book and for the most part I liked them well Tuck and Hanna as they seemed too nice to be in Hades and I really hope we get to see them again in the next book. We also got to meet Archangel Micheal and again I would have loved to see more of him but I have a feeling this wish will be coming true in the next book.

Sometimes I found myself wanting to through the book though as some of the decision's that Beth made, made me so angry and couldn't believe what she was going to do it was a literal mouth open moment. I wish we got to see the aftermath of Beth's actions but it went straight to the epilogue and everything seemed to be forgiven.

Speaking of the end, I hated the way it ended it just didn't feel right I knew to expect a cliffhanger but this just didn't feel like it was the end of this book.

Although Hades wasn't as good as Halo I am still looking forward to the next book to see what is going to get in the way of Beth and Xavier's romance as there always seems to be something!
