It was sad, but good to read about Lincoln’s experience when Bri was taken. Sad , but a very happy ending.

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 ...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

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

When Brielle disappears to Hell and may not still be alive Lincoln is stuck in Angel City with no direction. Everyone is trying to move on and they even have a funeral for her but he can’t. He can’t accept that she is gone and definitely not that she is dead. He falls in to a pit of despair, and even goes so far as to end his life. When that doesn’t work he makes a life altering decision. He must leave all of his friends and Angel City behind. If he cannot be with the woman he loves then he will ...more

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

This is Lincolns story from when Brielle was taken. My heart broke so much for him as he lost her and felt like he failed to protect her. He spirals so much as first and after a while decides its time to leave and do something else. I really loved that we got to see his POV for a little bit.

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

The book we all needed!

While reading the 3rd book I kept finding myself wanting to know Lincoln's thoughts and feelings! I was little too excited to find out that it exists and loved every word of this book. This whole series is amazing and must read! Going to be starting 4th one later this week.

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

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.

I’m soooo happy that I got to read a few pages from Lincoln’s view! It was short and sweet, and I finally got to see the love for Bri through his eyes.
Beautifully written, all I want is more from him.
This last book is going to be full of action, and I can’t wait!

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

Hotter hot hot

Getting Lincoln’s perspective really added a deeper element to this whole series !! Especially in understanding and getting a feel for Bri and his connection and relationship !
Prior to this book their relationship was there and present but to Bri it felt equal to her family and friends - so sizzle
But Bri is everything to linc ! His first and last and that is so much more evident after reading this novella . Made me wish we saw his perspective earlier but then I think the earlier

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 ...more

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

Fallen Academy Year Three And A Half (Fallen Academy Book 4) by Leia Stone A brilliant addition to the Fallen Academy series is Fallen Academy: Year Three And A Half
It shows Lincoln's POV from Year Three and gives a view on his time spent in the resistance freeing slaves. Usually these kind of POV's are a boring repetition of the previous book but this was well worth reading and i'd recommend it to all.

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

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 ...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 ...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 ...more

I was excited for this since it was our first look at another POV. It had so much potential and was capable of doing a full dive on their time apart. Unfortunately it felt rushed. Instead of doing that deep dive it was just snippets jumping through that time. I actually almost stopped reading about half way through because it felt like I wasn't reading anything I hadn't already read. I decided to stick it out and I discovered that eventually you do get to read about things that

Oh. My. God! I loved this novella so much, it's amazing when a story is told by one character and then we get another characters aspect. I'd forgotten how much I loved Link, it's been a few months since I read year 3. I was heartbroken and holding my breath in all the right places and that ending was just perfect! My emotions were running wild, this was an amazing read, I can't wait to start reading year 4 ;D

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.

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!
