I loved this so hard!! This was incredible and amazing and so just what true fans of this series so needed!! It was absolutely heartbreaking getting into Lincoln's head and heart. I loved how he was lost but found purpose. The back and forth of his emotional pain was so realistic. I knew what was going to happen in the end, but reading his voice and taking the journey with him made me melt and cry and finally feel just so relieved that his misery was ended. I adore Ms. Stone's writing and it alw ...more
You think your prepared for this book but let me tell you guys...nothing...and I mean absolutely nothing can prepare you for the ride of pure raw emotions this book will take you on! Its crazy good and written so perfectly. It’s a roller-coaster of emotions for sure but one that is very well crafted.

This book takes you on the journey Lincoln goes through after Brie is taken to hell. You’ll see his agonising POV come to life in this book. Your heart will break and feel everything right along sid

Absolutely loved this POV from Lincoln, and the heartbreaking emotional journey that Leia Stone has written. Year Three And A Half is a wonderful novella and a great addition to the series.
I highly recommend Year Three And A Half, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

A Dark Journey to Redemption

This story takes place at the same time as Year 3 but follows Lincoln as he and Bri's friends try to come to terms with her apparent death.
Leia takes us down the dark path that Lincoln travels while searching for answers and how to live life after losing the love of his life.
If you've read the other Fallen Academy books then this is a must have for your collection.

When I finished reading the third book I was so upset because I wanted to know what the hell happened to lincoln while she was gone. I was so happy to find out they were making a book just for him.

With that being said, I was slightly disappointed. The storyline was great and it was awesome to see a different world from just Los Angeles and to also get more info about what was going on around the world. However, it all felt too rushed. Nothing was ever explained throughly. It was like reading a

The gripping emotions...I’ve read each book, devoured each story. I knew what had happened but I never expected the fierce emotions that poured from Lincoln. I had tears in my eyes as I read the beginning of this novella. Leia amazes me with her ability to pull us in and become part of the story. Each moment of heartache weighed on my soul. Each step into the darkness allowed the hope to dwindle even when I knew the outcome. Leia is that good.

Once again it’s fantastic. I can’t express how pheno

This was an awesome read and I honestly wasn't expecting to enjoy it so much. Usually when an author decides to do a mid point story with another character I'm always a bit dubious as I feel it may take me away from the MCs story. However, this book is such a welcome insight into Lincoln's journey and how he coped and dealt with everything whilst he wasn't sure of the fate of Brielle. I feel that the author has really managed to feel this characters grief and despair which on turn I felt whilst ...more

Holy friggin hell. You are going to be absolutely DESTROYED by Lincoln’s story. We get to experience his pain and heart break of everything he’s going through losing Brielle! This boy is dark and tortured. I mean SERIOUSLY TORTURED. I hardcore ugly cried like a little girl reading this. Seeing the relationships with their friends Shea, Noah, and Raphael! They’re some of my absolute favorite secondary characters!
I cannot wait to read book 4. It is going to be incredible and leave me with one out

This book was just as spellbinding as the rest of them. I just couldn't put it down. I loved reading about year three from Lincoln's perspective. Catia was a fun addition to the characters. Overall, a great addition to the series and I can't wait until the next book is out.

Oh the emotions. Absolutely love Lincoln. I love how this is from his point of view. You knew it got bad from the previous book but reading it makes it that much more real.

I enjoyed the book. But somehow, I was disappointed in this book compared to books 1-3. This book made me not like Lincoln as well. My big gripe, there were a lot of time gaps that left me wondering what happened in-between things, sometimes just small gaps, & other times, larger ones. After the 4 books, I'm wondering if that's just how this author writes. There were also a lot of things just left off, I don't know if it was a rush to get done by the author, or tha

Lincoln Losing His Way!!😢 3.5 Stars 🌟
(Read using Kindle Unlimited)

I thought I'd connect much more with this book than what I did 😕 I missed the neck out of Lincoln in book #3 so I don't understand it 🙈 Maybe seeing him give up so utterly didn't jibe with who is in my mind, which is stupid as he's not my creation he's the Authors!!👍👎

I think I was expecting more about depth & detail about them saving the women and children too perhaps? Don't get e wrong, I wouldn't have missed this novella for

I’m so frustrated!

Spoiler alert!! I thought I was getting the continuation from where the writer left off with Brielle last. That’s not what this is at all. This is really what happened to Lincoln while Brielle was in Hell. I wish the author would have combined the two books into one that shifted between the two. I didn’t need a his/her view of the same year. Honestly, I already knew the majority of what happened to Lincoln from reading Brielle’s side. I’m looking forward to Year 4 and hope the

An awesome story told from Lincoln's point of view after Brielle is taken by the dark prince. If you haven't read the other books I would highly recommend reading the first 3 books in the series first. This story is heartbreakingly beautiful and so much more than expected. Lincoln loses himself completely at the loss of Brielle. This is his point of view on his time with out her. In this book he makes new friends and puts himself in the resistance which is a group of Angel blessed that infiltrat ...more

This book is parallel to the time in Book 3 of Brielle in Hell. This is Lincoln's POV. I was so excited to get to know how hard Lincoln tried to rescue Brielle from Hell. His love and anguish after she was taken was so real! Everything he felt and went through and then when he decided to move on and do good with his life, and he still made sure Brielle's mom was taken care of..... ah, the feels! I loved the introduction of new characters. I can't wait for Book 5 and the continuation of Lincoln a ...more

I love it when we are treated to a different POV and a back story all at the same time. The examination of Lincoln's despair and his eventual solution was well explored and brought into harsh relief the way that many people can be brought to the edge of depression. I want to thank Leia for her "Trigger Alert" at the start of the book - I've encountered such desperate people during my life and like to think that I've been able to help them, even in a small way. Can't wait for the next installment ...more

Fallen Academy: Year 3.5 is Lincoln's story. It tells what he does after Brielle is taken to hell. It's a nice glimpse of the time they were separated and a different look at Lincoln.

Reading Lincoln’s POV brought tears to my eyes, he was so devastated that Brielle was taken. He kept trying to figure out ways to save her, kept trying to figure out how he could get to her and he made some rash decisions that luckily didn’t come to fruition. I hated how much pain he was in and how it was hard for everyone around him. He ended up focusing his energy into something different which was very dangerous but in the end it helped a lot of people. I loved reading his emotions when he fi ...more

I was waiting for year 3, my mouth watered for year 4 knowing I had to wait. My patience was thin as I got Ed the wait for year 3 1\2 until year 4 was published. I just finished 3 1\2 and am about to get year 4. My wife got hooked as well, and it is difficult for me not to blow a single line or event. This book was both surprising and we'll worth the wait! Now leave me alone I have Year 4 to read!!! :)
First off, I love this series!! And i've always been curious about how Lincoln dealt while Bri was in hell.

While it was heartbreaking and I hated seeing Lincoln in such a dark place, I also loved seeing the absolute love and devotion Lincoln had to Bri.

There were some areas I would've liked to have seen expanded a bit more, like more on Lincoln helping slaves escape etc; but all in all it's a fantastic book.

Can't wait for Year Four!!!

Another perspective

I really enjoyed getting Lincoln's perspective on this story. Meeting James and Catia was so cool! They are really great characters. Hoping Catia joins the group one day. If there was anything I would change if asked it's that I wish we could have more of Lincoln's experience in San Francisco and less of him lamenting. This series is one of my favorites and I will read these books again and again for sure!

I want more! I love this series. Getting to see linc’s perspective was a treat. But now i want more. I felt like this book was too short i would have liked to see more of what he went through in the resistance but otherwise it gave a very good view point of his mental state after the events in book 3. This book will have u in tears from the first word. If you havent already i highly recommend reading the series. It will not disappoint.

I was absolutely blown away by this book. It carried the story from Lincoln’s point of view after his fiancé is gone-this is part of a series so if you haven’t read the previous books then you’ll be very lost lol. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! I can’t rave about this book enough. It’s got action. It’s got adventure. It’s got love at its deepest. It is a little dark but it’s truthful and soulful. You don’t want to miss this

Cute, but not really

Was this a sweet novella? Did it fit well within the canon/storyline? Very much so.
So what’s the problem? This story was written from a male Brielle point of view, NOT the hard ass, stoic and emotionally spent Lincoln we had gotten to know in Book One and Two.
I’m not quite disappointed, but at the same time it’s just highlighting that Leia Stone isn’t evolving or growing when it comes to her characters, they all are beginning to blur into one.

A great companion story to this series. I’m a fan of multiple perspectives and loved getting to know Lincoln's POV and what he went through during Brielle’s time with Lucy. It was haunting, painful, and a testament to his love for Brielle and helped fully realize their relationship for me as a reader. I loved this addition and fans of the series are sure to love it too!

Quick story from Lincoln's vantage to get me through until the 4th installment is done. Nice to get to know Lincoln better! He is sensitive and brave. Perfect match for Brielle.

Lincoln is sensitive and brave the perfect match for Brielle. Can't wait to see how their adventure unfolds in the next book.

Spoil alert 🚨 Wow! Great story from the author. Lincoln being one of my favorite characters. I’m so glad he was able to over come the loss of Brielle. It was sad how he and Shea were going through but they never gave up. Definitely a must read. I hope this comes out in audiobook as well to put in my collection. And I can’t wait to read and hear the next installment.
