    InconsistentThe 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 list control her, and actually kicks butt. After this...

    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 accidenta...

    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.
  • Vicky
    Very competent series.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLFuck no....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.I wish I did not have to worry about it Will...

    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!

    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.
  • Renée
    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... If you haven...
  • Andrea
    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.
  • Alyssa Nicole❣️
    I really liked the main character at the beginning because she seemed like a total badass that didn’t take shit, but slowly throughout the book she started to become so whiney and annoying. She was always worrying about Lincoln and their relationship seemed so rushed to me. I wish their were more interactions between them that weren’t them fighting with each other. I also wish their were more substance to the side characters, like her friends...
  • Taryn
    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 deci...
  • Nadine
    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.
  • Tracy D.
    Good times at Fallen AcademyI 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.
  • Amy
    This was interesting. I didn’t fall in love with the story or characters, but I definitely enjoyed reading it.
  • Vampire-lk
    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...
  • Jillian
    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.
  • anjuli
    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...
  • Kait
    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 elit...
  • Chad Christofferson
    Overwhelmed with happinessThis 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 le...
  • Chellee
    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 ...
  • Andrea Koopaloop
    2.5throw all the clichés at the wall and see what sticks!Sad because I liked the premise of the story- years ago a fight between Angels and Demons erupted, and they found themselves battling it out on Earth. Because they descended into our realm- both powers manifested in different ways amongst humankind- Some humans had remnants of demonic powers and some angelic. However, over time some humans ended up indebted to demon slave masters while man...

  • ☽☆Jean☠BookRampage☆☾
    Solid 3.5 stars.Super quick, fun and enjoyable read with extremely lovable characters. Really the kind of book I’m in the mood for right now. Highly recommend and I can’t wait to read the next one.
  • Book Addict
    What a kick-ass start to this exciting new series! As soon as I started reading my attention was grabbed and I was fully invested in Brielle and what she has to go through! She is a great FMC, feisty, independent, loyal, powerful and vulnerable and you spend the whole book just hoping away her issues. Then we meet Lincoln...he is intense, grumpy, sexy, protective and powerful. These two together are a great combination I just wish at times Lincol...
  • Kelly Fountain
    An intriguing and fascinating view into the classic angel vs. demon genre tweaked perfectly by Leia Stone. Brielle believes she’s destined to be a slave forever. Forever miserable, forever chained. The future looks bleak until the day she receives her powers. Unique, different and changed, Brielle now has something to look forward to, to fight for. Overnight her life has altered and each day brings new faces, new friends and danger. When two si...
  • Carrie
    An amazing start to a new series!! Brielle is our new heroine in this new series, the story takes place sometime after a great War between angels and demons. The war has affected humanity in a supernatural way and has gifted most of humanity with either good or evil powers. When Brielle was one of the few that received a greater gift, or a curse once you read this book you can decide for yourself. She must go to the fallen Academy to have her pow...
  • Cindy
    RecommendedWow. This is a great urban fantasy, a little more mature than YA I think since there are some sexual encounters and violence. However, it isn't too detailed. Brielle is an awesome character especially being a good person living in a city controlled by demons. It seems that there are angels and demons and then human hybrids of each. That part is a bit confusing at times since hybrids don't know what they are until 18 so they may be part...
  • Jessica Middleton
    Wow!! I am amazed. (Well not really bc we all know that anything Leia write is gonna be amazing) but seriously this book is LIT! You laugh and cry and you have love hate relationships *cough* Lincoln *cough* Brielle is an outcast among her peers but does she let that bring her down?? Hell no. She keeps her head up and keeps trying to be the best she can be, with her awesome crew of course. I cant wait until book 2 is out!
