Summary from Goodreads:
You’d think being stuck in the body of a beautiful seventeen year old girl forever would be a gift. But when you are fallen, it is more like a curse.

Indiana was a beautiful angel, enjoying the perks of Heaven, until she was tricked by a demon to fall in love with him. She was forced to fall from Heaven and remain in her seventeen year old form, banished to Earth, for all of eternity.

Now, unable to cope with her banishment, she is a seemingly normal seventeen year old girl by day, while she spends her nights punishing men for the wrongs they have committed against women.

Although Indiana has lived on Earth for thousands of years, she recently settled into a small town, where she has finally been able to make some lasting friendships. When a handsome, mysterious boy comes to town, Indiana knows something is not right. He might end up her ally, or she might end up in the fight of her life.

Heavenly Hell is a very quick read. I’m a pretty fast reader but I read the book in just a couple of hours. Which is great for me at the moment. I have been so busy that my reading attention span has been waning, but I was able to zip through Heavenly Hell no problem. Heavenly Hell follows Indy, a fallen angel and a demon hunter. Angels and demons is not a new theme in young adult books, but I have not read any book with this kind of take on the idea. There are fallen angels, who are still pretty angelic in my opinion. But the real storyline is kind of mysterious. To me the coolest part of the story was trying to figure out who the demon hunters boss was. We don’t find out in this book but my interest was certainly piqued and I hope we learn this boss’ identity in the second book. 

Indy is a tough man hater. She really, really hates guys. She is a self appointed protector of women against men who take advantage of them or mistreat them. I think her quest is noble but it has given her major trust issues. She doesn’t seem to trust anyone. Which has made for a very lonely couple of hundred years for her. I felt kind of bad for her but she comes off as so tough and independent that it seems like she can handle anything. I wanted to see a little more of her vulnerable side. 

There wasn’t really too much romance in this story. There was a bit of hinting at a romance between Nate, the demon hunter, and Indy but it felt kind of forced to me. I wasn’t really sure if there were actual feelings there on either end. Personally, I would like to see something between Indy and Conner or Indy and Mark. (two of her guy friends) I thought that they were really there for her. I know conner is crazy about her but I kind of like the idea of her with Mark more. I think that would be really interesting. 

Heavenly Hell ends with a cliffhanger, but the second book is already out so you can read them back to back if you are not a fan of cliffhangers. I am interested in seeing where this series goes. The first book was a good solid read. Some parts were a little sparse on development but it was a good enough foundation that I want to read the next one. And indy is a great, kick butt character, which I really enjoy.
