Heaven (Halo #3)by Alexandra Adornetto

Only sixteen when she started the series, Ally Adornetto knows how teen hearts beat, and this long-awaited conclusion is certain to be her most popular book yet.
Tease. Tease, Tease, Tease. The books teased me thinking they were going to get to SOME kind of point... but never did. Sigh.
I was dismayed by the ending. After all they went through, she leaves it like she did? The whole thing felt choppy with too many internal monologues. Bethany likes to hear herself talk more than any other book character.. well maybe not Anne Shirley but who could beat her in a monologue competition???
They FINALLY get hitched.. but wait.. here comes the tease... they STILL can't do the deed. Some books need to close some story lines and start new ones because that got old in about... 2 seconds.. wait - no yesterday.
I just felt this was drawn out, dry and repetitive. My mind kept saying "oh no, here we go AGAIN". And Again. And again.
The mythology had some holes that just left me scratching my head. There were some very potent emotional scenes which is what salvaged the score to 3 stars. Otherwise it would have been one or two.
The first book (Halo) had the most impact and was extremely creative. The second (Hades) still had enough punch to make it worthwhile. Seemed like Adornetto ran out of gas on this one. A real shame. If you haven't read the series, I'd recommend it anyway based on the first two books.
