Amelie Bennett. . . . Ending the world, one prophecy at a time.

I was born to slay Crossworld demons.

Big black flappy ones, little green squirmy ones. Unfortunately, the only thing getting slain these days is my social life. With my high school under attack, combat classes intensifying, and Academy instructors dropping right and left, I can barely get my homework done, let alone score a bondmate before prom.

Then he shows up.

Jackson Smith-Hailey. Unspeakably hot, hopelessly unattainable, and dangerous in all the right ways. Sure, he’s my trainer. And okay, maybe he hates me. Doesn’t mean I’ll ignore the wicked Guardian chemistry between us. It’s crazy! Every time I’m with him, my powers explode. Awesome, right?

Wrong.

Now my teachers think I’m the murderous Graymason destined to bring down our whole race of angelbloods. Everyone in New Orleans is hunting me. The people I trusted want me dead. Jack and I have five days to solve the murders, prevent a vampire uprising, and thwart the pesky prophecy foretelling his death by my hand. Shouldn’t be too difficult.

Getting it done without falling in love. . . that might take a miracle.

 

Review: I had a hard time getting into this novel but once I did, I really enjoyed it. Amelie is a bit of a trouble maker and her friends Lisa and Katie are always there to help her. Things go awry when she finds out that she is not who she always thought she was.

She is in her last year of high school. She is an angel but hasn’t found out what bloodline she descended from. She soon finds herself on the run with Jackson. Her examiner and teacher. They share a couple kisses but Jack keeps holding her at arms length. Or does he?

Amelie is an awesome female character. She stands up for herself and never does the poor me about her life. She does what she wants even if it will and more than likely get her in trouble. She isn’t overly interested in boys and dances are not something she enjoys.

I would recommend this book to anyone. The writer has great skill in world building. It was very engaging and imaginative. I really liked how she made all the characters different and not all cookie cutter high school stereotypes.
