You have to give S.L. Naeole credit for going against the wishes and wants of her readers. I read this book three times before I decided to give it a rating. The first time I read it, I hated it. I will not hide my disappointment in the development of the character of Grace.

Without adding any spoilers, I will say that the decisions she makes at the end of the book went completely against my expectations. I was angry and unabashedly disgusted. And then I decided to read the first two books again

I loved the other books in this series and was very disappointed in this one. I felt that her writing quality was not as good and got so tired of her using the word "sans." I have never been so frustrated with the direction of a book before and I read many. In fact, I've never written a review before but felt compelled to do so this time.

I just finished this book after spending all night reading it and it is amazing. The characters don't change in S.L. Naeole's books. They grow and they grow naturally. So much goes on in this book. It is a roller coaster of emotions and events and it just grabs you from the beginning and even when you get off, you're holding on to the handles because you don't want to leave. I swear the next book can't come soon enough!

I plan on writing a more formal review later. But just have to say that this book had one of the best scenes in it that I've read in a long time. It was so heartbreaking and beautiful.

After I finished this book I went back and re-read Falling from Grace all over again.

This gets 5 stars because of the ending. It was AMAZING! Seriously it had a wonderful ending.

Anyway, at first I was cautious because the first and second book didn't really keep my attention. There were certain times I had to stop reading because I got bored. But when I started reading this it didn't take me long to get halfway through this.

Umm...I think the only thing that really bothers me about this is that Grace was born to save Robert, but Robert was there to kill Grace while Lark was ther

SIGH! Well... let's start with the hardest part. It had been a while since I read the first two books, so I felt kinda clueless on a lot of the accepted parts of the story. (Like what exactly is "turning?" I remember something about becoming immortal? But this book doesn't explain that at all, and references it a LOT.) There was also a lot of backstory that could have been refreshed easily and wasn't.

On that point, let me say that there were a LOT of confusing details that were all dumped out at

Can't say i didn't expect this one to turn out better. I'm giving it a 3.5 because the plot thickens. Yeaaa.. it totally thickens. It's like the point of this whole series is to reveal secrets after secrets. I didn't particularly love it but i definitely don't hate it.

I didn't like the main character from the start of the series.. i didn't suddenly like her now. I'm glad that she found out about things that was hidden from her for years and that she was finally showing some backbone but, i stil

I am going to write this review trying to make it as spoiler free as possible. However just a warning I may have a few things in here that will give away part of the storyline.

This has been a wonderful series thus far however it still hasn’t hit the five star mark for me. I am in love with the story line of Angels however there are issues I have struggled with in each of the books. I guess my biggest problem is when I think of Angels I think they should be good and holy. In this series you deal

Black Halo continues the romantic story of Robert and Grace. Naeole has created a detailed story of angels and human that will test readers to expand their imaginations to its limits. The story continues to build in this third installment, but unfortunately seems to hit some obstacles. The flow of the previous two books were ever building and a continuous uphill mount; although in Black Halo it appears that the story hangs up on complications of an angel and human romance. While I loved the stor ...more

I've never wanted to write a book review before. I don't think I even did a single book report in school. But this book had me thinking so many different things and thinking about it when I should have been working that I had to put my thoughts down on paper and then put them on here because I know more people read this than the amazon stuff.

My first thoughts about the way this book ended was one big WTF?!! So many things happened that shocked me and so many secrets that went over my head and af

This is even worst than Twilight Saga. Really. I was totally tortured myself reading this series. And why oh why I still read it? (not that I read it completely, mind you, considering most of the things that told in this book (in this series) was about how much in love Grace and Robert are, that they couldn't live without each other, yada yada yada....). I think my mind was stepped out when I read it. Or maybe I am just a masochist who like to torture myself with bad stories.

I really liked how it ended, I love all the romantic scenes, but...
Grace was a little bit TOO annoying. Why did she have to make a huge speach every time something important was about to happen? The first 2 times, it was ok, but then I just didn't feel like reading "I want to be normal bla bla" "Oh this is my fault, just kill me already bla bla" GOD! I just wanted to slap her. And she should be angry at Robert for being away so much, he should be furious at her for what she did. I got it, they'r

I have to say that the Grace Series has totally surprised me! i stumbled through this series by searching for the next awesome series to read after Twilight and Night Huntress. Even though these series are completely different, i have to say this has been the best since Twilight in a YA series realm. The events that took place in this book gave like a whole turn and i was not able to believe my eyes while reading. I was able to feel and imagine every single description on these events and was to ...more

WHAT an amazing, twisted, heart wrenching, soul eating, time consuming BOOK!


I hardly put it down... The thing I loved most about Black Halo was that there were so many new twists and turns! So many surprising things you would have never guessed are revealed in this book.


Also, I despised this book. Especially the ending. Not so much as the last words that they said to eachother before the book ended, but more the fact of that thing STILL REMAINED! That's so upsetting, th

If you liked the last two books, you will love this one. I really loved it. Because if you are like me and think that you already figured it out, think twice because you will find that this book it has a lot of surprises that you will never expected.

That Grace feels betrayed for Robert it’s nothing compared with what destiny has reserved for her and Robert. And this time both will have to be strong enough to confront their enemy and finally find the true of what makes Grace so special.

I was a little worried at the beginning at the way the story was headed; I was worried that it was going to ruin all of the beauty that was in the first two books. I was pleasantly surprised -- it is difficult to even imagine the love that is between Grace and Robert let alone write about it so beautifully ... Bravo!

I took away a star for this one for the simple fact that I had more questions at the end of the book than I did in the beginning ... what in the world is Grace if she is ne
Things started getting really, really tangled and weird in this book. I realize S.L. Naeole writes YA with more of an adult twist, and the book definitely proved her skill in stepping above the watered down YA novels. Although, I did find it a bit confusing and difficult at some points. Explanations for Sam and Grace's mother, Ameila, and the entering of new characters and the loss of some of the old were all very hectic, yet intriguing. I can't wait to see how this series ends, despite my woes ...more

This series continues to improve with each book. I found that I could not put this book down and read it in pretty much one sitting. I did find myself getting frustrated with it just as did the previous ones for much the same reason - this could have been shorter and just as good and most likely better with some good editing. I am looking forward to reading the final book in this series. I am also very glad that I kept reading the series even through the frustration and look forward to reading m ...more

I didn't like the way that Grace kept pushing Robert away and yet couldn't stop having thoughts of him all the time. I mean, if you really wanted to break it off with him, then push him away completely. Don't waste your time and energy pushing him away but finally relenting in the end. Bleh. Whatever.
I like how things were going in this book. The troubles that couldn't stop coming in their way. The ending was unexpected. But I love it enough not to hate it. It was brilliant, yes. Like I said, w

Lo primero que puedo decir de este libro es que la autora en verdad quiere que me de un ataque al corazón realmente! fueron muchas emociones las que senti, realmente me volvi adicta al libro no podia parar de leerlo hasta que terminara.

Aunque debo confezar que Grace de nuevo me saco de quicio casi la ahorco :P mientras que Robert Uff me encanto fue tan romantico y tan el!

Definitivamente fue maravilloso el libro me encanto no puedo esperar para leer el cuarto!
