Publisher's Summary

Being Lucifer's daughter isn't always easy.

I'm no stranger to fending for myself, but when I make an epic mistake, my dad is left with no choice but to punish me.

You’d think he’d torture my soul or send me to hell, but no, he sends me to Celestial Academy, where college-aged angels learn to be guardians. The only problem is I don't have wings, and I'm certainly not an angel.

Attending a school full of angels is no walk in the park when your dad is the devil...until I meet three men who make me feel like anything is possible.

But just when I think things have changed for the better, there's a threat that might take everything I've grown to love away. Angels are being kidnapped and drained of their blood, and I might be their next target.

Only book one is on audio.

Ascend is book one in the Celestial Academy trilogy. Contains MM, teacher/student, mature scenes, light bullying from one of her men in book one only, and adult situations. Ends with a cliff-hanger.

Outstanding!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this author and I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited about a new author! She has taken a pretty saturated RH genre and raised the bar. Outstanding narration. Both narrators are superb. The steam and storyline was amazing. Also her spin on angels is really cool. I only wish the rest of the series was available on audible already because the wait is going to be terrible.

Meh

I understand this is book 1 from the series of books. But there is no story buildup that will compel me buy book 2.6 I can't help but feel in the haste of adding erotic scenes, author forgot to add substance to the story. Could have been a great plot frankly, but no emotional entanglement, nothing that makes the scene form before your mind as you read, even the erotic parts read superficial at best.

this series is going to be awesome!

really great characters all around, well developed and not quite your usual rh lineup. unique world though some classic devil's daughter story elements remain. smexy times are on point.

sooo much potential! wish it was longer but that's just cuz it kept my interest so well.

Fantastic start! Can't wait for more!

I loved it! The story was unique and fantastic. I love the characters. I also like that there's some discussion on how havinf multiple boyfriends is gonna work- so many stories, and I love them too, are in a world where the reverse harem is normal or expected; it's nice to have one that's considered unconventional. There was drama, action (both kinds), and intrigue. I can't wait for the next one.

Absolutely amazing

First off, I love this series, I have read it and now have listened to it. Danica is Lucifer’s daughter and she is a troubled teen. She gets kicked out of high school and sent to Celestial Academy where she is bullied by the Angels for being Lucifer’s daughter and not having any angel powers. She stumbles on an angel kidnapping ring. With the help of a teacher, his fallen angel friend, and a recently created Archangel Danica has to survive the academy and find out why angels are being taken. I loved the narrators voices and the fit really well with these characters

Just Wow

I am just getting into audiobooks. This was one of my favorite books to read last year. So when it came out in audio form. I'm happy to say it's the first one I listened to all the way through.
The narration by Patrick is perfection. That man's voice? Oh man, hubba hubba.
The story itself is amazing with in-depth characters as the story evolves.
Also, it's a fast burn. Not for sensitive ninnies.

Wow! Loved it!!

I really enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would. Not only was the story well thought out with characters that were well rounded and made you feel for, but the choice of narrators was phenomenal. Seriously, I highly recommend this book & audiobook to anyone wanting something that will suck you in!

Fabulous

I was given a free code and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I loved everything about this book and listened to it all in one sitting . Both narrators were fabulous only adding to my enjoyment of the book . I can’t wait for book 2 to land.

Not to be missed!

This book was addictively good, I couldn't stop and then was disappointed when I got to the end, it made me me laugh and cry, I loved the idea of Danica, Lucifer's daughter being sent to the Angel's acadamy as a last chance. Of course she finds the bullies on arrival, three hot angels, and discover a nefarious plan involving the fallen. I loved that Lucifer was shown as a caring dad, while matching the description to tv series character! The narrators Patrick Zeller and Brooke Daniels were both amazing at helping to bring these characters to life,
I can't wait for book 2 to be available on audiobook to find out whats next.
