Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
12/01/2013
Gr 8 Up—Amelie Bennett was born to be a Guardian, a race descended from angels and created to slay Crossworld demons. Despite her impulsive nature, she is good at her training, but it's her senior year at St. Michael's and she needs to pass her examination and receive her Watcher bond assignment. Jackson Smith-Hailey is the new Examiner and wants little to do with her, but there is a definite attraction (and maybe more) between them. There's not much time for romance, though, because something is killing off important Guardians. The Elders think it might be Amelie because she carries Lucifer's bloodline and is possibly part demon. Is she a killer, part of an ancient prophecy, or a girl in the wrong place at the wrong time? White's debut novel has most of the textbook paranormal elements—New Orleans setting, angels, demons, vampires, werewolves, and a love/hate relationship. Despite all the busy elements, something about Prophecy Girl works. Snarky Amelie is full of insecurity and bravado. She comes across as a likable heroine and readers will root for her and Jack. The plot moves along quickly, although readers may find themselves skimming over some of the history of the bloodlines. At times the inclusion of vampires and werewolves feels forced and too convenient, but paranormal fans will be too caught up in Amelie and Jack's relationship to mind.—Heather Webb, Worthington Libraries, OH

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I had a hard time getting into this novel but once I did, I really enjoyed it. Amelie is a bit of a trouble maker and her friends Lisa and Katie are always there to help her. Things go awry when she finds out that she is not who she always thought she was.

    She is in her last year of high school. She is an angel but hasn’t found out what bloodline she descended from. She soon finds herself on the run with Jackson. Her examiner and teacher. They share a couple kisses but Jack keeps holding her at arms length. Or does he?

    Amelie is an awesome female character. She stands up for herself and never does the poor me about her life. She does what she wants even if it will and more than likely get her in trouble. She isn’t overly interested in boys and dances are not something she enjoys.

    I would recommend this book to anyone. The writer has great skill in world building. It was very engaging and imaginative. I really liked how she made all the characters different and not all cookie cutter high school stereotypes.

    I’ll be the first to admit I will judge a book by its cover and that is probably the major disadvantage hard copy books have against ebooks. This book has an exquisite cover that begs to be picked up. With its velvety soft feel, the red hair against the darkened background gives it major appeal to potential readers.

    “He frowned. ‘I prefer to believe you kissed me. If you’d like to apologize I’m happy to hear you out.’”

    Cecily White does a superb job in bringing her characters to life. While at first I thought the characters were a bit too superficial and reality TV-like, I quickly realized that is a lot of the behaviors and mannerisms of my peers, and while often super annoying, White has a firm grasp of writing from a teenage perspective. I easily saw myself in Amelia, the main character who is snarky and confident, taking no flack from anyone, yet at the same time this leaves her vulnerable, especially when the guy she really likes is around her and she finds out it has been prophesied she shall kill him.

    There is no lull in this book whatsoever from the get-go and White fills the pages with twist after twist keeping readers always on the edge wondering what is around the next corner. Will Amelia be able to kill the guy she thinks she loves and convince everyone she isn’t a murderer marked to ruin the entire angelblood race? Definitely pick up this book, if not for the nonstop action (my favorite), then for the quirky pop-culture references (least favorite) as there is a bit of everything in this book to appease all readers.

    Amelie Bennett, is entering her senior year at St. Michael's Guardian Training Academy. The academy trains Guardians which are a race of secret fighters, descended from archangels. Guardians are divided into either Channelers or Watchers. During their senior year they are tested and their bloodlines revealed. Then each Channeler is bonded to a Watcher for life.  Only rarely does a Guardian refuse a bondmate.  When the guardians graduate their job is to protect
    humans from soul sucking demons, created by Lucifer.




    Something has been targeting and killing Guardians. When a former graduate, Jackson Smith shows up to replace one of the instructors, recently killed, Amelie feels that he is her bondmate.  Jackson tries to stay away from Amelie as he knows from an old prophecy she will cause his death.




    I loved this book from the beginning. Cecily White has created a great story not only for YA but also adults. The story is set in New Orleans so it is not hard to believe that it is part Fantasy, Paranormal and of course Romance. I hope to read more about the Angel Academy and the struggle with the soul sucking demons that inhabit the Crossworld.

    Prophecy Girl has all of the makings of a book that I'd love - initially. Cecily White has a delightful sense of humor that saturates the novel. It is a paranormal story set in New Orleans that nods to other supernatural works. Amelie Bennett, the protagonist, is snarky, stubborn, and just has something special about her that I cannot put my finger on, but I know that I would like to see it in more heroines. However, the issues that I had with White's debut clouded my enjoyment.

    Firstly, let me say that I didn't not like any of the characters. They were just the problem. It was really difficult for me to remember them from scene to scene. I could recall the name of the school's Queen Bee and clique member, but I had a hard time remembering the more important characters and what their roles were. I kept going back in the book to refresh myself on who people were. It is very rare that I have to do this when I'm reading. Prophecy Girl had enough twists that this was a pretty major problem for me.

    There was, of course, a romance in the novel. I had some mixed feelings about it, but I think Ami handled it as well as could be expected. She was very honest about her feelings, and she called Jack on his bulls--- when he dished it out. (Why can't more heroines do this?!) I will say that I do NOT like the whole teacher-student romance, even if they are close in age. I think anyone who is in a position of authority over their partner, especially a younger one, creates a lot of issues, and it's just wrong when a teacher is involved. But I won't rant because it wasn't terribly offensive. Jack was a substitute teacher for all of five minutes, so I just squinted my eyes at it a little and kept reading.

    Though I had a hard time enjoying the book as thoroughly as I think I could have, it was still a pretty good read. Cecily White is an author that I'll most definitely be keeping my eye on in the future, and I can't wait to read books with her fantastic writing style. I will try to read Prophecy Girl again because the positive aspects of the book are definitely worth it.

    - 2.5/5 Stars -

    What does one do when you are the enemy you seek to destroy. 

    Amelie is the typical high school senior with demanding classes, great friends, and nights spent demon
     hunting.  Well wait that is a little less than normal but Ami wants to be a Guardian and will make that happen
    regardless of who is standing in her way.  She is looking for a Watcher to bond with her and take her to the next
    level, but so far, no one seems to be a fit.  That is until the day that Jack comes to her high school as an
    "instructor" creating a best and worst day of her life.  There is something going on between them she cannot quite
     put her finger on, but one thing is a definite she likes this man too much.

    During her training finals, it appears that using her gifts created a portal for disaster.  Ami and Jack are
    sucked into a scenario with a death sentence over Ami’s head.  While Ami and Jack fight back from the nightmare
    existence, they are residing in the relationship heats up and Ami starts to question what can she offer to this
    man she is bonded to.  Ami comes to terms with who she really is, the forces that control her, and the merging of
    past and present.  Jack struggles to figure everything out wondering if there is something between them stronger than magic.

    Strap in and take a great reading ride with a well-written story wrapped around amazing characters

    Amelie reminds me of Rose from Vampire Academy, only I liked Ros

    Amelie reminds me of Rose from Vampire Academy, only I liked Rose more. Amelie is stubborn and headstrong, and she's not quite human. She's a troublemaker, much like Rose is. Only, I didn't find her as real and believable as Rose. It may be in the way that she's presented or how her personality is so out of there. I never felt as though I really got to know her. At the same time, she has something about her that can help her relate to teenage readers. Despite being a Guardian, she's a regular high school girl. She doesn't let any of this Crossworld business shape her personality or force her to mature too soon.
    I didn't like the romance in this novel. Amelie acts overly familiar with Jake. It would have been all right with me given her character, but she pushes Jake far past his comfort zone to the point where he has to put the equivalent of a restraining order on her. It doesn't seem like a good way to develop a romantic interest, and yet it happens. Out of nowhere, and the paranormal reason for their chemistry isn't working for me. It still doesn't explain how a love from years ago can still be there when they've had so many life experiences since they last met and aren't the same people they were back then. I also don't like what Jake sentences Amelie to at the end of the novel because of his selfish desire to keep her (and, yet, he can't keep her because of the circumstances).
    The strong part of this novel is the dialogue. It's real and often filled with witty banter. My only problem was that I didn't understand a lot of the movie references. I never was much of a movie buff, but that's me. I also liked Amelie's friend well enough, though they don't show up enough for me to be able to glean much of their personalities. My favorite character is most definitely Luc. He shows up later in the novel, but he's also the one who I had more time to get to know. I love his eccentric personality.
    Prophecy Girl doesn't particularly stand out to me in the wave of paranormal romance books out there. Still, it is a fairly solid read for the most part. The plot isn't anything particularly original or action-packed, but it has steady pacing. I recommend this for those who enjoy a down-to-earth paranormal romance read.

     Imagine the local high school, full of teens and teachers, but

     Imagine the local high school, full of teens and teachers, but they are Guardians, or really Guardians in training, and protect anyone with a soul from demons.  Upon graduation they are paired together - bonded - to kill demons.  Usually those bonded end up falling in love as well - so bonding is sort of a really big deal.  There is a lot of thought that goes into the bonding decisions, one of which is what bloodlines a person has descended from.  




    Amelie is known to be somewhat of a troublemaker.  Her spells usually end up backfiring in some big way.  That is how she meets Jack the first time - she is trying to put out a fire that she has created on accident.  The connection between them is immediate and Jack does everything he can to keep his distance from her.  That isn't meant to be though and before they can blink they are on the run together.  




    I loved their chemistry and hope to see more of them in the future.  The book flowed nicely and I found it easy to follow the storyline. There were some twists at the end, some I had figured out, some I hadn't.  All in all - good quick clean read.

    A big thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This book was a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, hating and enjoying it, the whole way through. One minute I found myself enjoying trying to guess what would happen next. And then the next moment I was screaming at it to not do something stupid. And unfortunately I was a little disappointed with some stupid moves.

    Amelie is the main character of the story. I found her amusing and just like a teenager as she should be, and some teenagers are annoying. Her character wants to kick butt and save the world, but she is ill equipped to do it. But there comes a very good reason why she has been the only girl in school that could not get her powers to work right, often ending in disasters. She has been given drugs to hold her back most of her life. I found her to be very oblivious, impulsive, and frustrating. Yet something about her makes me not hate her completely. She tries to be strong and save the day, so that gives her points in my book. But she could shut up and listen for a moment.

    Jackson was my favorite character. He just tries to do what is right and follow the prophecy he has been taught to follow. He also puts up with Ami, and keeps her as safe as he can. He was easy to fall in love with. He did angrify me near the end and I almost threw my iPad with how the writer was taking the story. But the end redeemed it for now.

    One more character I need to mention is Luc. He is a vampire. He was slowly brought into the story, but ended up having a big role in the end. I love how he was a vamp with a grumpy attitude. Yet he was loyal to Jack who is like a brother to him. I am very interested to see where the next book takes his part in the story.

    I think this was a good start to a series, that is definitely geared toward young adults in high school. There was enough mystery and fighting to keep the pages turning, and enough left open at the end to have me waiting for book 2.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and Netgalley.)
    17-year-old Amelie is a channeller. Descended from angels, channellers channel otherworldly energy to kill demons, and Amelie knows that this is what she was born to do.

    Before chanellers can graduate from their special school, they are put into pairs or bondmates – one channeller, and one guardian, but Amelie isn’t ready to be paired with anyone at her school, until Jackson Smith-Hailey shows up. The problem? He’s not a student, he’s a teacher!

    Strange things are happening though, and after several people turn up dead, the finger ends up pointed squarely at Amelie, even though she has nothing to do with it. There are things that Amelie doesn’t know though, things her father has hidden from her, and a prophecy that does not look good for her.
    Will the prophecy concerning Amelie come true? Why is she so attracted to Jack? And what has her father been hiding from her?


    I enjoyed this book. Even though some of the ideas might be considered cliché by some people, I liked the little touches and the writing style that made this a really entertaining read.

    Amelie was a truly kick-ass heroine! She was stubborn and bold and often did exactly what she wanted to do, even if it wasn’t the thing she should be doing! She totally held her own, and wasn’t afraid to make sacrifices for something she wanted.

    Jack was a real sweetheart! I liked him right from the beginning, and I loved how whilst keeping Amelie at a distance, it was also pretty obvious how he felt about her.

    I liked the romance between Amelie and Jack. There wasn’t a lot of it, but the teasing and arguments between them were like flirting, and I loved the idea of bond-mates. Even though the soul-mate idea is not new, I liked how Amelie and Jack created yellow sparkles when they touched, and I liked how they both showed that they cared for each other without words.

    I liked the rest of the storyline, and I liked the brief glimpses of demon hunting that we got. The ending was pretty dramatic, and fitted with the rest of the story, although the thing that happens to Amelie right at the end was a little strange!
    Overall; a good YA paranormal, with a dash of romance.
    7.5 out fo 10.

    Amelia is a demon slayer and also a young girl. She goes to an A

    Amelia is a demon slayer and also a young girl. She goes to an Academy to learn demon hunting and also to find her bondmate. It is very important to find a bondmate. problems start when her professors begin getting killed. She begins to snoop to figure out what is going on. She also has to figure out who just may be her bondmate. More problems occur when she meets Jackson. He wants nothing to do with her and is also a trainer. Amelia feels attracted to him and should stay away but some things are harder to figt\ht than demons. Her powers are stronger around him and that usual only happens when you the right Watcher and Guardian are together. Things turn even worse when her field test go bad. Now she is on the run because it is believed she is the one killing people and the one told to fulfill a horrible prophecy. Can she prove she isn't the prophecy girl and not fall head over heals for Jack. She has five days to do it all in. It is going to be very hard.




    Amelia is so freaking amazing!! She has it all going on. Powers, funny, tough and not afraid to get right in the middle of things when they get rough. Her life hasn't been perfect but she doesn't let it get her down. Even when it seems like everyone is against her she takes it in stride and she sure isn't afraid to let it be known what she thinks of the other paranormal creatures. Jackson is a double side of yummyness!! Strong, good looking, can be funny at times, smart and so much more. I see a lot of people falling in love with him when they read this. He should be afraid at times but he doesn't let it slow him down. He does what he thinks is right. I so fell for him.




     It is hard to put into words just how much I enjoyed this book. It is has a different twist on the paranormal world with new things. The writing is very awesome and draws you right in. From the start you get to see just what type of girl Amelia is and as the book progresses you get to see so much more. There is plenty of action as she runs for her life or they are all battling demons. You also get the sparks between Amelia and Jack. They are enough to light up the pages they are on. There is plenty of other characters to get to know and enjoy. There is also plenty of twist and turns many I didn't see coming and was shocked by them. No spoilers from me but seriously read this book!! You won't regret it if you love paranormal YA books. I can not wait to see what happens next.

    When approached about reviewing this book I was super excited an

    When approached about reviewing this book I was super excited and accepted right away. The synopsis had me intrigued. Demon slaying, a mystery, murders, and a romance! I'm not typically an angel book reader, but this one caught my attention and it was a really great read! I have gotten away from reading a lot of paranormal so I think it was a nice change.

    Amelie is a character that took a bit to grow on me. She is impulsive, a bit annoying, and a total rule breaker. She could be really funny at times though, and she is not about to take anyone's crap or listen to what people say if she doesn't agree. She is a bit obsessive over Jack upon just meeting him, which at first made me roll my eyes because it screamed insta-love, but I give the author props for having a good reason behind it. Anyways, there is much more to her than even she knows, and with Jack's help she unravels things. She is also a little naive about some things, but she is a teenager and her whole crush and stuff does cloud her mind. She's also in danger so ya know. She's not exactly thinking straight.

    Jack was just okay to me. He's got a lot of stuff going on and he knows some questionable people. He is also keeping quite a big secret from Amelie. Honestly he was a good guy and all and he's strong and smart, but he just didn't really do much for me. He was good for Amelie though. He somewhat kept her from doing completely stupid things, though just barely.

    This was a little predictable, but an interesting book. There was plenty of action and adventure, and just enough mystery to give it that extra push of awesome!! I thought that the romance was done well. It didn't overshadow the main story, but it was very much there. More so because Amelie is so insistent on it even if Jack is trying to keep her at a distance. When it all came together I thought it was really well done. It wasn't anything that blew my mind, but I really did enjoy this book and will continue on with the series.

    *Actual rating on my blog was 3.5 stars.

    Copied from Goodreads:

    Awesome debut! 
    I have to admit, I'm not a huge reader of YA books and I know the author personally (full disclosure). I'm also not crazy about the title of this book (reminds me of a Marvel comic superhero or something), but it does tell you what it's about, so I suppose it works. 
    That said, I picked it up and didn't stop reading until the very last line. The writing was engaging, clear, and funny. I loved the characters. Amelie and Jack sizzle with tension, even as they try to fight it for practical reasons. Cecily left the ending open for more, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens to these two as their story continues.

     "Death is a lot like prom-" and she was my fast friend until the end. I love, love, loved her snarky quick wit and stalky tendencies. I'm cool with stalking.
    It's a trait I admire in the less-creepily inclined.

    This young adult, paranormal read left me starving for more. I found myself
     trying to slow down the read so I could savor it and make it last. It didn't work.
     It pulled me in and didn't let go until the last blessed page! I totally didn't see
     the plot twists coming (trusting soul that I am). Nicely done!

    Think Beautiful Creatures meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer and you have
    Amelie. Amelie is no Girl Scout, but she has a few of their better qualities:
     loyal, brave, strong and RESOURCEFUL. I would follow her into battle any day.

    I can't wait for book two! Write faster, Cecily White!

    This book is AMAZING! Amelie is a kick-ass heroine with just the right amount witty snark, the world-building is fantastic and the plot is non-stop action. Throw in a drool-worthy hero, and I couldn't put this book down! More, please, and quickly!

    Finally a main character that can make me laugh without making me want to slap her. Amelie is smart and funny and strong at the same time. This is one paranormal book with a heroine I REALLY rooted for. It's a fun ride from beginning to end and best yet, it's the start to a new series. (SQUEAL!) I can't wait to see what's coming next!!

    I usually love stories with a strong female protagonist and Prophecy Girl is no exception. Look forward to reading the rest of the series!

    I loved Prophecy Girl, and cannot wait for the other books in the series. Amelie is a wonderful main character and I appreciate that she is a strong female lead. I think it sends a great message to young girls. I also
    really enjoyed the fast pace of the book, but was never confused or lost in the story. the imagery really brings the town and Amelie to life.
