Publisher's Summary

Brielle Atwater isn't sure of much, but she knows a few things: 

  1. Having black wings is not normal. 
  2. Selling her soul to the demons was a mistake. 
  3. Lincoln Grey is the biggest asshole she's ever met...but not falling in love with him might prove impossible. 

When angels fell from the sky to war with the demons that ravaged Earth, their combined powers infected humanity. Now, the humans are assigned one of two fates, being either demon-gifted or angel-blessed. 

After wings sprout from Brielle's back at her awakening ceremony, she's sure she's an angel-blessed celestial. It's not until she sees black wings that she realizes something is terribly wrong.

Having sold her contract at a young age to save her father's life means she should be bound for Tainted Academy. That is, until a fallen angel unexpectedly fights for her to be accepted into Fallen Academy, the elite school for those who inhabit Angel City.

She's immediately matched with her impossibly handsome celestial teacher, Lincoln Grey. Laying eyes on him, her first thought is that her time at the academy might actually be fun, but this theory quickly fades when she and Lincoln clash on day one. To further prove her admission into Fallen Academy is cursed, the entire school is thrown into chaos when an Abrus demon reveals that he knows Brielle's secret. Now, above all else, Lincoln must fight to protect her.

To his surprise, the only thing more difficult than trying to save her...is trying not to fall for her.

Logan or Lincoln

Am I the only one who noticed how Lincoln turned into Logan every once in a while? It kinda bugged me.

Names names names

The story is great and I love it but the narrator uses the wrong name is places.... at one point she calls Lincoln Logan and then she calls Luke Lincoln so you have to really pay attention so you know who is actually being referenced or is talking

Vanessa moyen is why i got this

I love vanessa, she does the curse of the gods series by jaymin eve so when i saw that she was the narrator for this series i had to buy it. And it didn’t disappoint. I love the story, and the character development and I can’t wait to read year two. Love it, keep it up!

book great/ narrator needs to pay attention

I'm loving the book but when the narrator renames the main characters I was ripped out of my imagination. like an ice bath for my fantasy world right into the ear.

Teenage angst

The teen love angst is far too dominant in the story, otherwise a good yarn. The narrator was great.

Narration was awful

I could get through the story, but the poor narration made it a lot harder. The forced distinct character voices were so bad that they ruined any immersion in the scenes. The male voices were especially forced and sounded like a child pretending to be an angry man, with a growling tone. If the narrator wasn't good at voices, she should not have done them at all.

Pronunciation please!!!

I generally like Vanessa Moyen’s narrations, but she needs to learn how to pronounce some words. It drives me nuts every time she says “arch angel” or “arch demon””. So much so that I’m not sure I can finish listening to the book. It is pronounced “ark” not “arch”. She has issues with words in other audiobooks too, but that’s another review.

Decent YA Novel

Not much to say really. its a decent YA novel with an interesting theme. Kind of your same old: main character is super special for some reason, they go to a school, there's a rivalry with 1 other classmate for no real good reason, there's a love interest, there's an evil force to fight against.

the author plays around with those tropes well enough for it to be interesting. worth the $5 sale price i paid.

Love the book, but unsure about the narrator

This book is pretty great. I bought it on a whim and am not disappointed! The author provides multi dimensional characters and a good amount of world building which is a huge plus in my book. The only thing that bothered me about the audiobook was the performance. The narrator would switch between saying "arch" and "arc" when saying things like "archangel". Also, I swear I heard her multiple times saying "Logan" instead of "Lincoln" for one of the main characters. It was a bit infuriating but once you get past the narrator's mistakes the story is really excellent.

Strictly for fans of the genre

If you like this genre and want a fun book that hits all the usual notes, this is for you.
For me, it's confirmed I don't like the genre. I found the protagonist unappealing but maybe some readers would like her.
My main complaint is the narrator, who has a repetitive rhythm and an annoying way of overemphasizing words. And please would someone tell her "archangel" is pronounced ARK-angel, not ARCH-angel.

Good story but

Good story but at the end it goes a little too much in the s*x part, and again it is more of the same, a nice girl, meets a "bad boy" and fall in love with him and all the bull*hit from other books.
The narator was great, I loved her voice, and the fact that she didn't "sleep" while she was reading

An absolute page turner!

Brie is just so funny, a typical teenager that usually blurts out whatever she's thinking is aware of the fight between angels and demons but which side will she be on and does she have a choice? Her journey includes a few great friends and a Prophecy that was meant just for her. It also includes a couple of hunky warriors and four very cool archangels. I loved the different characters in this story and the plot so far is fantastic and action packed. I can't wait to start book 2!
The narrator Vanessa is fantastic and voices the characters really well, I've also listened to her read Life After which is also an amazing series. She has a lovely voice and puts every effort in to make the story come to life. I definitely recommend.

Good, but could be better.

I did enjoy listening to Fallen Academy Year One but it could have been better. Still it was well written and well narrated. it was good enough for me to want to listen to the next book in the series. I cannot quite put my finger on what is lacking for me but I have enjoyed previous work by Ms Stone so I have high hopes.

I loved this book and listened to it in 2 days! However I am not moving into the sequel because from what I’ve heard it’s not as good as the original but it works well as a lone book!!!❤️

Misread names

Narrator read the wrong name a couple of times in the book which really confused me and detracted from the story. The first time she said Logan instead of Lincoln (Logan is a character from another book by the same author and narrator) and the other time she said Lincoln instead of Luke.

Apart from this, a great book and great narration.

Excellent series

Vanessa Moyan does an amazing job narrating this totally awesome series. It's a take my money 💲 book series. After listening to the first book l bought all the books in the series. And l haven't regretted it. It's a complete series so you don't need to wait for more books to be written and narrated. Leia Stone writes a sometimes heart breaking action adventure paranormal romance. I loved every minute. Not just a fluffy romance. It's an awesome ride.

It had potential but... erh

I was really excited by the concept when I saw this book. I felt like there were so many interesting places the story could have turned to but I was disappointed when it more or less became a college life/drama story set in a paranormal world.
