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.
When I first heard of Prophecy Girl, I loved the idea and was so excited to read it. Entangled Publishing does publish some amazing books :) It had a snarky, yet likable main character and a sizzling romance.
Amelie, the main character, goes to a school for the descendants of angels. When a bunch of murders start occurring around her and a hot new guy shows up who seems to instantly dislike her, she realizes there may be more to her than she ever imagined.
The top two things that cause me to love a book are usually great characters and a fast-paced, interesting plot. Prophecy Girl had both! The main character, Amelie, was sarcastic (but not overly so) and she had amazing loyalty to her friends. She’s someone I would definitely want as a friend :) Amelie was an awesome protagonist.
The plot was pretty twisted, with several new things about bloodlines and prophecies coming to light. I did guess some of the twists the plot would take, but some still surprised me. There were some pretty shocking revelations at the end of the book, and I enjoyed every bit of the plot.
Jackson was also a great guy. He was so mean to Amelie at first, and I was very annoyed at him for the first part of the book. Later, you find out he has a good reason, but I still wish he had gone about things differently. Amelie and Jackson did make a pretty amazing and powerful couple, though.
My only complaint is that I wasn’t completely happy with what happened at the end. I wish some things had happened differently. Prophecy Girl is still a great book that I’d highly recommend. I’d give it 4 out of 5 flowers.
