    One thought on “Hades”

    1. [Applause]Circus Princess: Hello there, and welcome to another episode of What the Hell Were You Thinking?! Tonight's guests are a few of the people from the best selling Halo series. They're second installment, Hades, just recently came out. Come on out, Xavier Woods! Bethany Church! And Jake Thorn!Xavier/Bethany/Jake: [sit down in the three chairs and wave awkwardly at the audience]Circus Princess: What a pleasure it is to have you on the show this evening. Would you like some tea, Mr. Thorn?B [...]

    2. I'm going to start of this review with Story time! Warning: do not try this at home. You may or may not get injured and someverysevere scolding will follow.I also begrudgingly give this book 1.5 stars as a rating. One day, when I was about 8 or so, my family and I made our yearly trip up to Mackinac Island, Michigan. This island is different in the way that no cars or any kind of automobiles whatsoever are allowed, so everyone rides on their bikes around the 1 1/2 mile island in order to enjoy t [...]

    3. Before reading HadesHow can you trick someone into getting on a motorcycle? Either they get on, or they don't get on. Motorcycles aren't like cars. And what does angel Bethany want with a motorcycle anyway? SHE CAN FLY. Or, I'm assuming she can. Who knows, maybe Halo angels are just so lame they can't even use their wings to fly. *shudders from pure lameness*Perhaps the conversation went something like this:Jake: Hey Bethany. Why don't you get in my van on my motorcycle? I'll give you a liftBeth [...]

    4. Oh come on girls it is a book about romance and that is why we buy them. If you want to good read, non-fiction is the way to go. Stop complaining about how the writer did this or didn't do that. You brought these books because it is a girl meets boy with a bit of action with it end of story.

    5. *Goes around whistling*Wait!What?HADES?????!!!!Do you know what Hades is?Let me you:Hades (English pronunciation: /ˈheɪdiːz/; from Greek ᾍδης (older form Ἀϝίδης}, Hadēs, originally Ἅιδης, Haidēs or Άΐδης, Aidēs (Doric Ἀΐδας Aidas), meaning "the unseen"[1]) refers both to the ancient Greek underworld, the abode of Hades, and to the god of the underworld.So.What does it have to do with Christianity?The previous book was an insult to believers all over the world [...]

    6. So I wonder if I've ever told you people how much I love making lists. Yep. I spend hours on my things to do and other random lists. Here's one I'm sharing with you. Things I'd probably do while trying to read HADESLeaf through the pagesEndure Shake head in disbelief Raise my blood pressure Grind my molars to dust Be stupefied beyond belief Kill my brain cells Go to sleep Watch tv Read another book Laugh hysterically Scream in my pillow Have a good timeEnjoy readingNow that almost all of these h [...]

    7. I I ah I can't even What am I supposed to say here? This is just one of these books you knew, going into it, that you were never going to like it, and yet, after you finish it, you remain with a sour taste in your mouth. Of course, that begs the question as to why I bothered reading it in the first place (in fact, I expect that question soon), and I will adress it later on. Let me tell you, pure masochism has little to do with it.On the positive side, Hades is better than its predecesor, as far [...]

    8. Have you ever read a book, or watched a movie/TV series, where you just didn't understand why anybody would like this (in your own opinion) utter dreck? You then voice this opinion, only to be shot down by fans who tell you either to stick your head where the sun doesn't shine, or: “Oh, episode/book 1 was terrible. But I persevered and fell in love with it.”Generally it seems that's what happens with a lot of media. Catching Fire was, in my opinion, better than The Hunger Games. Every series [...]

    9. WHAT!? She is tricked in riding a motorcycle? How? I am sorry, but it ticks me off how stupid and childish she made what's-her-face. I understand she is a angel just "born", but seriously? Can you at least make her a little bad ass? I like bad ass heriones. Not the little crying whinny girls. I understand that there are moments where that it is called for, but through out the whole series of books? What the hell are you thinking Andornetto? Why don't you grow up a bit before publishing what you [...]

    10. Wishing people would stop rating books before they become available.Also, mildly interested in reading about the potential train wreck how do you get tricked into a motorcycle ride? Roofies?

    11. Dear World,Please do not question my sanity. I promise I have not lost it. I am reading this for the freaking lulz AND THAT'S IT.Sincerely, Me.While I'm writing my review, you may entertain yourselves by reading my 46 status updates below. Thank you, come again.Also, notice the addition of three stars. That means my review is coming REAL SOON, I promise!Review: 1.5 starsFirst impressions are deceiving.I have fourteen years’ worth of anecdotal proof that this theory is true, but the one example [...]

    12. Okay, what in the world is this cover about?Is that Bethany on a motorcycle?The absurdity it burns.Oh, well. It's a good think she's not an angel or that would have been really stupid. Phew!

    13. Hades by Alexandra Adornetto is the sequel to Halo that’s riding the angel train for all its worth. Although I felt Halo was lacking in so many ways, there was some enjoyable moments to it that made me want to pick up Hades. What a big mistake on my end. I feel the only reason Alexandra got published is because of her age. Publishing is giddy when they can find authors under a certain age. They must think they’re sensations, much like pop singers, if the author who’s not of legal age write [...]

    14. More of my reviews can be found at Flipping Through the Pages!Let me begin by saying that this book will be given 1.5 stars instead of 1. The only reason for this is the fact that whilst I still hated it with a passion, stuff happened (not necessarily a plot), but things apart from "I love Xavier's hair" happened.I don't even know where to start. There is a countless number of contradictions and inconsistencies in this instalment The first one I noticed occured in the first three pages"It was si [...]

    15. To See full review with pictures, videos, and Colonel Sanders click here: yalbookbriefs/201This piece of sanctimonious shit doesn't even deserve a star. Let's start off by being nice. Because it's always good to be nice right? Unlike Halo. Hades actually had a plot. Sort of. Things actually happen in Hades. Grant it, the plot is still pretty flimsy but it's there.Okay, now that's the only good thing I have to say about this piece of shit. I have read a lot of awful books in the day, but nothing [...]

    16. Bethany Church, the perfect little angel from Halo, has forced me to create a new shelf, called “WHO LET YOU BE HEROINE?”Because really, Bethany, who in their right mind would let someone like you be the heroine of their book. Answer: people who have some vendetta against interesting, flawed, and actually likable characters.Hades sets off on a journey six months after the events of Halo with Xavier and Bethany being murdly in lurve and such. Haha, I’m saying events like something actually [...]

    17. The cover certainly looks better than the original awkwardly coloured one, but you know what they say. Polish a turd it's still a turd.

    18. Ok, this book was wayyy better than Halo. For all you guys who wonder how she got tricked into riding a bicycle, here's a reality check: Jake's a demon. He can do whatever the hell (pun intended) he wants. (view spoiler)[He changed his physical body to be one of Xavier's closest friends, someone Beth trusted. Then he told her Xavier was hurt, and needed her help. What else was she supposed to do?(hide spoiler)]Hades had a LOT more action than Halo, so it went by much faster. I think this book ac [...]

    19. Yee gods, what a fine mess we have here. I did not know that Hell could possibly be so lame. Here we have the place where the wicked are punished for there sins, where the face and light of God has never and will never be seen, where there is nothing but pain and suffering and agony and sin, burning, inescapable sin, and Alexandra Adornetto reduces it all to A shady nightclub. Something's missing here. Like, I don't know, some element of terror, something that would drive people away, something [...]

    20. Arrggh! What do I write about this book? Being a religious person it was so hard to read about a heaven and a hell that are so completely not what I believe. I am so glad that this world does not exist and is only trapped in this story. The violence in this book and the references to sex and a couple of almost rape scene had my reeling. In one breath you are reading about God and his goodness and the next about a demon orgee!!! The love story is soooo sappy and over the top,but it does fit in wi [...]

    21. 2 stars, Book was entertaining, in all kinda of wrong ways. It was so bad that couldn't put it down. So predictable, I mean my little cousins would even figure out the ending. The amount of cliché's used in this book is amazing. Just imagine all the clichés in the world were copy-pasted into this book. 2 stars, for making me laugh you silly book.

    22. Disclaimer : Rant Rating Level. Off the freaking Charts. Cursing involved. I tried to keep it informative as well. Not working like he misspelled poster below. Yes I know it spelled wrong.[image error]First Sentence: When the final bell sounded at Bryce Hamiliton , Xavier and I gathered our things and headed out onto the south lawn.Of course you and Xavier headed to the south lawn. You're freaking Gorilla Glued together.Summary: Bethany Church is tricked and kidnapped by the evil Jake Thorn and [...]

    23. I live in Hong Kong, and in Hong Kong the first language is Cantonese (quite similar to Chinese). So the English translated books are not sufficient in most bookstores.Anyways, I went to one in Koon Tong today and I went to the world literature section, where the Chinese translations usually were, and I saw this.In case you didn't catch the title, they were Hades (Halo #2) and The Savage Grace (The Dark Divine #3). The English translations of their names were Satan's Hostage (Spy Angel #2) and B [...]

    24. DNF at 12%. You can find my detailed analysis on my blog, the Snark Theater (part 1 • part 2)Well, on the plus side, there's an actual plot in this one. Potentially, at least.On the minus side, the author is officially out to set feminism back…to nonexistence. And then some.You win some, you lose some? Except in this case we don't win at all.

    25. I can't believe I'm actually thinking about reading this. Maybe just for the lulz. The Halo review was ever so much fun. I want to know how the hell the first one made enough money for them to think that there should be a sequel. WHY???
