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.

I have attempted to read books with angels as the main characters and every time I am disappointed. I have found them as sad and pathetic and angels should not be sad. PROPHECY GIRL is definitely not that which is awesome. These angels are descendants of the warrior angels and they have not lost any of that kick-assness, which is a totally appropriate word to use to describe angels btw.

Amelie Bennett is a descendent of … well I won’t tell you you have to read the book. She is fighting to clear her name after being falsely accused but before that she shows some super cook magical powers. Now in Amelie’s world which is set in New Orleans (which is added to the long lists of places that I want to visit but only do through books) angels have bondmates and at the beginning Amelie is without one but then she meets him... Jackson Smith-Hailey, who is good and of the line of Gabriel and is holding some type of secret that I couldn’t figure out by the end of the book which really ate at me but his story was nonetheless great. The chemistry between these two is so magnetic and it is refreshing that they are equal partners in things.

PROPHECY GIRL is so well written I was never bored with the story and the turns thrown in there were intertwined so well because is flowed so well. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a read about angels that won’t make you run for the hills.

Cecily White did a great job with PROPHECY GIRL and I will definitely look into when the second book in the ANGEL ACADEMY series is released.
