Danger, a dark past, and forbidden love combine in Heather Burch's three-book Halflings series, which combines fantasy, romance, and a battle for one girl's future.
In Halflings, after being viciously attacked in the park, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the 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. Meanwhile, a growing and forbidden attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. 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 could upend the balance between heaven and hell.
In Guardian, Nikki promised she would move on from Mace and Raven, but a close-quarters mission meant to assure her protection brings all three together in close quarters. Mace, steadfast and deeply in love, wants to protect Nikki at all costs, while Raven's loyalty to Nikki finds him advocating for her independence and battling his own darker inclinations. At the same time, Nikki finds it harder and harder to choose between the two heavenly beings she may never have. Dangers intensify, and tensions flare as the purpose of their journey becomes clear. Can their defenses hold up to master manipulator Damon Vessler and the powerful secret he holds regarding Nikki's heritage? Can anyone protect Nikki from her true purpose and destiny?
And in the final book, Avenger, with a Seeker trained on her blood, Nikki flees with Raven, while Mace and the other Halflings fight 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 her future with the Throne.
