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? 

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.


What can I say about Prophecy Girl? 

It reminds me of Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

We have a girl, a student-trainee of a prestigious paranormal academy, who is the center of an ancient prophecy/destiny because of her impeccable pedigree. Then we have a boy, either a student or a teacher (a few years older than the girl), who is the main love interest of the girl. A forbidden romance ensue because they're not supposed to be together because their society's powers-that-be think so. But fate and love have other ideas because no matter what they are fated...

Oh, by the way, the girl needs to save the world.

The End.

It really does sound familiar but I tell you what: I thought about Prophecy Girl's similarity to the mentioned books AFTER I read it; which goes to say that Prophecy Girl delivers a story, though not quite unique, that would capture you and ensnare you in its pages.


P.S.
I'm getting sick and tired with all these instalove madness.
