Overview

The Truth Comes with a Price

Nikki knew Damon Vessler would not let his prized creation go easily—she simply never imagined the lengths he’d travel to get her back into his clutches and turn her heart toward darkness.

A Seeker at her heels, trained on her blood, Nikki flees with Raven alongside her for protection, while Mace and the other Halflings wage the battle that has erupted on earth. But even as the two boys she loves fight for her, she knows the battle will be hers to win. Determined to uncover the secrets of her past, and exactly how she fits into Vessler’s twisted plans, Nikki sets off on her own, and soon discovers facing hellacious beasts is nothing compared to the decision she will need to make. One that could change not only the war and her relationship with Mace and Raven, but also her future with the Throne.

“Sure to appeal to fans of both star-crossed lovers and Stephanie Meyer.”

Booklist

“A well-written, thoroughly thought-out, and utterly addicting read.”

    A must read!

    For anyone out there who loves angels, plot twists and live triangles this book knocks all the other ones out of the water. Heather Burch took a amazing storyline, turned it into a fansatic story that just when you thought you knew what was going to happen next you find out it was something completly different. I read this whole series in a day and I laughed cried and cursed, mostly at the last part. Can anyone tell me if tjeres another book because it left it off at a cliff hanger and dying to know what happens!

    Favorite book of this series.

    I absolutely loved this book in every way. The ending surprises you. I love all the twists and turns. All her emotions and circumstances make her come to life. Wow! All the spiritual content really shines. I certainly recommend this book. I enjoyed all the action and the love triangles. My favorite parts were the last half of the book.

    Extremely good turn out

    The last book in Heather Burch's Halflings series was amazing. The book focusing on learning new things about Nikki that the reader did not know. Avenger was an action packed thriller that ended the series on a high note and made me upset that it was the last installment. I highly recommend this entire series for anyone interested.

    What I Loved Nikki is a lot less torn in this book when comp

    What I Loved




    Nikki is a lot less torn in this book when compared to Guardian (and I appreciated the toning down of the love triangle). At first, while Raven and Nikki were on the run from the Seeker (which was legitimately scary, by the way) and Mace is back at Viennesse, I was the one torn. Raven was being, well, Raven (part protector, part flirt), and Nikki wasn't having it. I liked that, but at the same time was wavering in my Mace loyalties.




    Any book that can make me wonder just who the heroine is going to end up with is a keeper.




    The fast pace and unrelenting action that I grew so fond of with both Halflings and Guardian returns full-force in the third book in the series. So many answers are revealed in this one! Vessler is as evil as ever, but there's a twist to even his character in the end. Raven provides a key to his and Nikki's relationship (page 146 is pivotal). Mace is as dedicated and sweet as ever, but there's even a change in him that rockets up the respect level.




    What I Didn't Like As Much




    I'm still unraveling the theological logic given on page 213, but, as with the other books, I appreciate that Heather Burch never distorts Scripture or says something that makes me squirm. This is a paranormal with half-angel, half-human beings, after all, though, so the super-unexpected ending and even the darkness is well-played.




    This book gets quite dark without being over-the-top depressing (there's plenty of comic relief, supplied mostly by the candy-loving Vine and surprisingly-heroic-but-still-adorably-nerdy Zero). I like the ending because it totally had me thinking we were going to lose a major character -- or all of them.




    Any book that can make me wonder if everyone's going to die -- and make that somehow seem strangely okay -- is a keeper.

    My favorite YA author, Heather Burch, has done it again. Avenger

    My favorite YA author, Heather Burch, has done it again. Avenger, book #3 in The Halflings series is her best work to date.

    Characters Nikki Youngblood, Mace and Raven have a chemistry that draws you in and keeps you. In this book, Vessler's (bad guy who is trying to trick Nikki into thinking he;s good) plan is revealed along with some answers that shed some light on Nikki's past and her future. We are also introduced to more Halflings! This book tied up some loose ends for me while opening new doors that make me hope ful that there will be a book #4...and #5...#6...and...
    I enjoy how Burch weaves action, romance and mystery with "The Word."  We are all faced with choices and how we choose reveals our true self. And in this book, many characters prove just that. Avenger is a MUST read.

    Alexandra

    “Uh, where's the Poseidon cabin?” she asks. She has long raven hair and ocean-blue eyes. “I'm Alexandra Jackson, Percy's twin. You can call me Alex or Nyla. I've heard both. But....” she laughs. “This is obviously not the Poseidon cabin. Athena, right? Well, good to see ya.” She picks up her silver-hilted sword which has a sapphire glowing in it, swinging her light blue packback back over her shoulder and walking out.

    Greg

    Walks in and sits silently on his bunk, unsipping his book bag and putting his clothes and possessions in the drawers under the bed. Hangs his weapon plans on the wall next to his bed and sighs greatly.
