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 *** 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. N

Inconsistent

The one word that comes to mind for this book is inconsistent. I liked the first 35%-40%, and then it went downhill. It felt like the author was engaged in the story early in and didn't really care anymore as the book progressed.

**SPOILERS**

So Bri is actually fun and kinda cool at the beginning of the book. She finds out about her unique powers, finds a cute guy but doesn't let her lust control her, and actually kicks butt. After this, however, she becomes a whiney tween obsessing ov

I was up until 1am devouring Leia Stone's new paranormal urban fantasy, Fallen Academy: Year One!
It. Is. The. Tits.
There are books that you really enjoy, and then there are books you rave about. This was a 'rave about' story.
Year One is for you if you like an enemies to lovers romance, a sassy woman with heart (and a switchblade), a tight friendship, donuts, and a high-stakes world that includes warring angels and demons, and humans who accidentally inherited angelic/demonic powers.

Sassy, sexy, YA/NA paranormal romance.

This book didn't really stand out for me, so I don't think I'll read on in the series, but is was still a fast entertaining read.

I enjoyed this one very much. But I have to admit I would like it better if I have not been reading another paranormal series which is so much appealing to me so comparing the two....this one is clearly less in many things...

I might read more books in the series in the future...

I rather be hanged than to be reading this bullshit.
It is just all garbage, good old stinking pile of garbage put on a piece of paper. I could not force myself to be reading this shit. I do not want to describe it nor talk about it.

Superb

A truly wonderful book, excellently written with a lot of details and unexpected events. It moves along very quickly, keeping me completely engrossed in the story. I would definitely recommend it to others. I’m off to start book two.

I liked it. I mean the YA romance, boy hates girl, girl thinks boy is a hot asshole, girl likes boy, boy figures girl's too hot and "different" not to like, has gotten old.

Honestly, it just makes me nauseous now but overall it was fun to read.
It required no brain power and annoying-stupid-kids who think they're invincible is just what the doctor ordered.

We all know that everything Leia writes is amazing, but this completely blew it outta the water! I thought it would be a typical YA PNR. There would be a hot love interest, some angst, and a spunky best friend. It has all of those things, but it’s so much more. Leia makes it totally unique and completely her own. I don’t know how she comes up with all of these kickass books, but keep em coming!

My first new book of the year and I really enjoyed it. I would write more, but I have to start book 2 now....no time to waste.

Such a fantastic and well written Angel vs Demon YA story. The characters are wonderful and you’ll quickly love all of them (excluding one at least). You can’t help but love and cheer for Brielle on her Year One journey at the Fallen Academy, and hope that she makes the target to get through the Gauntlet. I did loved the twist as to what the Gauntlet actually involved.
Can’t wait for what adventures are planned in Year Two...

Meh.

The beginning of the story is somewhat interesting. After Brielle becomes a full-fledged member of the academy, it starts to lag. Several times there was a good ending point, but the story pressed on and I kept losing interest. It felt like reading Brielle's Adventures instead of a cohesive story.

Brielle's servitude doesn't last long at all. She's enslaved for less than a week before her contract is supposed to be sold and the archangels decide that she needs to be saved, so they send Lincol

You would think a novel, with a large amount of people rating it five stars, wouldn't be so god-awfully bad, but it is. It's so bad that calling it mediocre is such an overstatement, so much so that it's suspicious how many readers supposedly like this book enough to give it a soaring rating. While I didn't mind the premise including the special, you're-the-one-from-the-prohpecy protagonist, I did mind the corny writing, the horrible pacing, and the lack of character depth (don't get me started ...more

Loved the world building and the idea behind this series, such a unique and inventive concept! Snappy dialogue and plenty of action made this a quick, entertaining read :) Curious to see where it goes!

3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Stars! Bully, College Romance. The writing was pretty stellar, but the love scenes needed work, it felt almost like fade to black, which I don’t like, if your writing romance write everything! Damnit! Overall not bad, I may give this series I try.

Good idea and set up but the story gets pretty lame after a while, I doubt I will follow the series any further. The love story was pretty nice and had some spark but the overall story was quite slow and dragging in my eyes.

!ATTENTION SPOILERS!
Be consistent, please.
I read this book in the hope of having a nice time, not expecting the book to become my new all time favorite novel but what I read was......
Let me try to explain:
1. The book was inconsistent, one time Bri is falling for Lincoln then suddenly he's a prick and then he's back to being the greatest thing on earth. She just can't make up her mind and once she has you don't really get where the feelings are coming from.

2. Things happen way too fast; they're h

4.0 -4.5!? I can't decide! It's good!

This is the first time I'm reading a book that is solely Leia Stone (rather than a collaboration) and it did not disappoint. Essentially, mutant humans caught up in a war between angels and demons in a post-fallen world? Oh yeah, I'm going to read that every time.

The novel had all the classical hooks of the o.g. paranormal books:
Super special heroine with badass powers and spitfire side kick? check!
Super elite school to train and fight the baddies? double ch

Good times at Fallen Academy

I admire witty, humorous, bad-ass female leads who also have a strong love of coffee. This has a slow-burn romance with a hint of enemies-to-lovers trope. Some good action sequences, and good use of magic.

Enjoying the story so far, and will definitely pick up the next in series.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS NOVEL!!!!!! It’s a refreshing take on why I fell in love with YA novels in the first place!!!! Truly a great storyline & fleshed our characters! A novel I needed to remember my childhood with its carefree days!!!!! An easy read, finished less than a week! I listened to the audiobook, but ordered the paperback on Amazon for an Xmas present to myself as this is a real gem in my opinion!!! I am looking forward to reading more in this series!!!!! I hope others enjoy this novel ...more

I loved this YA book.
A very easy read with likable characters and the token mean girl thrown in.
I'm looking forward to the next.
The covers for the series are stunning!

This was a fun book to read. I also enjoyed listening to the audible, though I probably read about 40% of the book. I will continue with the series to find out what happens next but probably not right away.

I'd say this was a fun read overall. I had no expectations except for being entertained and I was for a bit. I liked the concept of this book demons, angels, fallen (angelic) and tainted (demonic) academy and some battle. I would say it kept me reading. However, it wasn't a spectacular read for me.

I found the character building mediocre and the whole events just meh. The set up is post apocalyptic which I do enjoy and the world building is quite simplistic but, explained. The demons and angels

Overwhelmed with happiness

This is her best written work and best storyline. I love that the series is broken into school years and I want to attend this school.

If you like vampire academy and the covenant series, this is a must read.

The main characters Lincoln and Bri are fabulous because they are themselves and are not afraid to display it. The side characters add life and are enjoyable to get to know.

The only down side of this book is the length, I have that thought every time I deeply and
