Book Description from Goodreads:

After leaving her family's angel cult to start a new life, Lydia Easterhouse's past comes back to haunt her. Halo of the Madonna is a short prequel to the Halo series (Halo of the Damned and Halo of the Nephilim).

My Review:

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

In Halo of the Madonna we find out Kim and Joanna's mother Lydia Easterhouse's secrets or some of them anyway. Lydia stole Armaros' box of Heaven and hid it for many years without anyone knowing she was the one who took it. We also find out that Lydia was not as bad a person as her daughters thought she was. Lydia actually cared for her daughters and son very much. Lydia knew that Armaros' box of Heaven probably would harm him in some way otherwise he would not want it back so bad. She became very determined to learn whatever she needed in order to find out all about the box of Heaven and all of its secrets.

Lydia tried to teach her granddaughter Maria as much and all that she could before she died or was killed, her daughters didn't believe her. Maria is a very smart little girl who was always sort of chastising her grandmother with wanting to learn all about angels and demons. Lydia took her children and left her mother's home and bought her own. She worked and invested her money and eventually she was able to buy another home no one knew about where she could start a new life with her children and get away from her mother, Armaros and their religion.

I read Halo of the Damned and loved it very much. I then read Halo of the Nephilim and really and truly loved it even more. I can't wait for the next book in the Halo series and Halo of the Madonna is just as fantastic as book #1 and book #2 in the Halo series. Hopefully it will hold me over until the next book but I'm not counting on it. If you have not read Dina Rae's work then I suggest you do because she is one amazing writers. If you haven't read any of her work yet then you don't know what you are missing.

Read my review of Halo of the Damned and Halo of the Nephilim.
