"Every now and then an author comes along that makes me leap up and shout, ‘Yes! We have a winner!’ Heather Burch's debut novel, Halflings, is well-written, creative, and most of all flat out captivating story telling. Highly recommended"—Bestselling Author James L. Rubart
Award-winning author Heather Burch is making her mark alongside Stephanie Meyer, Lauren Kate, and other acclaimed paranormal scribes with the first in a new series of addictive books about a trio of half-human, half angels titled HALFLINGS (Zondervan; $14.99; February 2012).
HALFLINGS follows seventeen-year-old artist Nikki Youngblood, who is attacked by hell hounds while sketching in the woods. When three mysterious and attractive boys come to her rescue, Nikki’s life is thrown into overdrive.
Little does Nikki know Raven, Mace, and Vine have a secret—they are Halflings, the offspring of fallen angels and human women. The three were sent to Earth to protect Nikki, but as Mace and Raven become closer to their charge, the focus of the mission starts to waver. Relationships between Halflings and humans are strictly forbidden, and Mace struggles to honor the rules he has kept until now. Raven, however, has no problem breaking such rules—though Nikki is the first girl who has made him want to be better and turn away from the darkness that tempts him. For Nikki, choosing between the virtuous Mace and bad-boy Raven is a decision she doesn’t want to make, especially since choosing either means destroying their hopes for eternal reward.
As the three battle their romantic feelings, they must prepare for a fight against more than just hell hounds. Events at a local lab, and vibes surrounding Nikki’s godfather, have Raven and Vine convinced something sinister is going on, opening the world to demons and putting more than Nikki at risk. Nikki uncovers a new gift that could help aid the fight, but will it be enough to help those she loves?
Gripping and electrifying, HALFLINGS is sure to lure fans interested in a fresh, intense, spiritually-influenced paranormal series. Teens, and even adults, will be spellbound by this first book, filled with action, romance, and suspense.
