Fallen Academy: Year One
Brielle Atwater isn’t sure of much, but she knows a few things:
1. Having black wings is not normal.
2. Selling her soul to the demons was a mistake.
3. Lincoln Grey is the biggest jerk she’s ever met … but not falling in love with him might prove impossible.
When angels fell from the sky to war with the demons that ravaged Earth, their combined powers infected humanity. Now, the humans are assigned one of two fates, being either demon gifted or angel blessed.
After wings sprout from Brielle’s back at her awakening ceremony, she’s sure she’s an angel blessed celestial. It’s not until she sees black wings that she realizes something is terribly wrong.
Having sold her contract at a young age to save her father’s life means she should be bound for Tainted Academy. That is, until a fallen angel unexpectedly fights for her to be accepted into Fallen Academy, the elite school for those that inhabit Angel City.
She’s immediately matched with her impossibly handsome celestial teacher, Lincoln Grey. Laying eyes on him, her first thought is that her time at the academy might actually be fun, but this theory quickly fades when she and Lincoln clash on day one. To further prove her admission into Fallen Academy is cursed, the entire school is thrown into chaos when an Abrus demon reveals that he knows Brielle’s secret. Now, above all else, Lincoln must fight to protect her.
To his surprise, the only thing more difficult than trying to save her … is trying not to fall for her.
Uncaged Review: This is a fantastic urban fantasy beginning, and one I know I’m going to be itching to get the next book as the author publishes. This is marketed as a young adult, but I wouldn’t go less than older teen, as there is some gore and cussing. The very little romance is more “closed door” type but the violence is well described.
Great action, great characters and world building and the classic, good vs. evil is all here, and the author keeps you gripped to the pages. The dialog and the strong female lead with Brielle is a character you can cheer for, and wanting the next installment as soon as it’s out. Reviewed by Cyrene
