             Halflings (Halflings #1)


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 a scientist’s dark plan, 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.

Halflings has a fantastic storyline with plenty of action, drama, and romance—all what I love in a novel. Heather Burch has finally done what I have wanted to see in a triangle romance for a long time. Burch's writing was also fantastic and exciting, she kept me glued to this story with a cliffhanger ending that had me loving the main character Nikki. Burch has taken the half-human and half-angel that we are familiar with and given it a new twist. And the intriguing storyline had me loving the Halflings.

Nikki is a seventeen-year-old kick-butt martial artist, Kawasaki motorcycle riding girl, but she’s never broken the rules. She’s a tough girl that uses her brain for more than girly clothes, make-up and boy swooning, which drives her best friend Krissy crazy. Its going take more than the good-looking football quarterback to get Nikki's heart swooning over a guy. When Nikki finds herself fighting the evil forces of hell, she soon realizes her I-can-take-care-of-my-own-self altitude is going to need the help of three new gorgeous guys that just moved to her town, and two of the guys are going to melt her tough girl heart.

Mace, Raven, and Vine are the three gorgeous halflings sent on a heavenly mission to fight the evil forces that come against Nikki, along with their caregiver Will. Mace is the good guy hero type that never breaks the rules. Raven is the bad-boy who always breaks the rules, and Vine is the newbie who's just looking for his next candy fixes.

Nikki, who's never had any of those girly swoon love problems, has met her match with Mace. Nikki, the girl who couldn't fall in love, has just fallen for both Mace and Raven, but now she will know the power and the pain of love's heart-break for the two guys she loves but will never have.

Halflings is a totally different triangle love romance. One I have been waiting for a long time and I’m so glad Heather Burch has written Nikki, Mace, and Raven’s intriguing romance with a fantastic strong storyline with action, drama, humor and heart-break. Burch has given her main character Nikki a strong personality that I truly admire when facing life's most hurtful choices, Nikki's character shows she can make responsible choices while her whole life is being taken away from her as you will see in this heart-breaking cliffhanger. I highly recommend Halflings as a must read.

Also there is a free ebook, 11:15 The Making of a Halfling, that starts the Halflings adventure! If you've already read Halfings, this will add to your fun. If you haven't, this will introduce you to the Halflings.

  2. Debbie, thank you so much for this glowing review! You really grabbed hold of all the subtle nuances planted in Halflings. Yay! Very exciting for me!
