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?
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.
“A fast-paced thrill ride that had me laughing, swooning, and turning pages long past my bedtime. This book is impossible to put down.“ - C.J. Redwine, author of Defiance
Ok, so I'm a paranormal boarding school stalker.
You know it. I know it. Shoot me.
Before I start with the part that is actually concerned with my reaction to the book, let me get one thing out first.
What do I think about preconceived notions about new books.

You see the students all have angel blood and are studying to become demon hunters after they graduate. The girls are what are known as channelers being able to cast spells and the boys are paired... ...more

Awesome debut! Here's the (slightly) more detailed review I promised.
