Devoted (Angel Academy #1) by Emery Skye Devoted (Angel Academy #1) by Emery Skye tells the story of Anna who is about to turn seventeen and attends Hope Academy, a school for angels. The angels (noviates) attend and train to become Warriors so they can protect the human race from demons. Anna attends school with her sister Amalie who is not as serious about her training as Anna is and because of this, Anna is very protective of Amalie. Anna is strong minded, disciplined, and fierce. She wants to be the best Warrior she can possibly be. Some of the noviates have been disappearing from the different Angel Academies and the Powers that govern the angels have sent assistance in the form of the delicious, Legite Warrior Angel,Nathaniel Deror(the embodiment of perfection) and other Warrior angels. Legite Nathaniel Deror is an enigmatic, powerful, and intense individual that Anna feels a great pull towards. Legite Deror replaces Dr. Chayyliel and teaches the Combat Techniques class and singles out Anna. Anna gets her ass handed to her each class until one day she pushes back and steps over the line. Anna and Amalie go to a party at school and after being at the party for a while, Anna can’t find Amalie. Anna starts to panic and she looks for her all over campus. Legite Deror helps look for Amalie, and they find her and Alyosha (her boyfriend )in a compromising position. Amalie, Alyosha, and Anna are punished. Anna ends up having to do extra training with Legite Deror. During these training sessions, Nate runs hot and cold with Anna which drives her nutty. Anna has strong feelings for Legite Deror which is uncharted territory for her. Alyosha (also Legite Deror’s brother) ends up going missing like the other noviates. Anna, Amalie, Taylor, Legite Deror, and Lucas (another Warrior Angel) go to the Dark World to rescue the noviates that have been taken. When they are meeting the Soothsayer for the first time, Anna finds she has a very rare power that she did not realize she had, and Nate is troubled by this new revelation. Nate decides he wants to do some research in the library before they go into the Dark World. Amalie, Taylor and Lucas enter the Dark World through the book, but before Anna and Nate jump into the book they look into each other’s eyes; they see the longing the other has for the other and finally give each other a well-deserved kiss. (The type that will knock your socks off.) After they are all in the Dark World, all hell breaks loose both literally and figuratively. Unthinkable choices, betrayal, and secrets are revealed. Anna’s world is turned upside down. The beginning of the story serves as an introduction to the Angel Hierarchy and the characters themselves. You learn about the main characters and their personalities. As a result of the information dump, the beginning of the book is a little bogged down but still very interesting. After you get past the initial getting to know you stage, the story takes off. Emery Skye has created a book that grabs the reader. Skye’s book is gripping and commanding. The characters are well thought out and interesting. The story line moves along at a steady pace, with plenty of great moments, and never lags. This book has many twists and turns to keep you intrigued. The author has given fantastic mental images that bring the story to life for its readers. The only negative aspect of this book is that at times during the story there where things that needed to be edited so that unnecessary material which slowed down the story could be cut out. Other than that this book was highly entertaining, and a joy to read. If you enjoy action, romance, and/or angels, I highly recommend you read Devoted (Angel Academy #1) by Emery Skye I can’t wait for the next book in the series! It will be interesting to see how Nate and Anna’s relationship grows and also to see if we learn anything else about her mom and dad. However, I think I am looking forward to learning more about Imogene since she is an angel that is like Anna. 4.0 Stars I did receive this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Devoted grabbed my attention from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat.  The plot took many unpredictable  twists and turns.   I can't wait to read the next book in this series and find out what happens with Anna and Nathan.   I look forward to reading more from this author.

I have always loved angel fiction and this novel does not disappoint by far.  Young angels train at Hope Academy to one day protect humans from demons, only some of the noviates are disappearing.  As Anna sets out with her sister to rescue a fellow angel, and her sister’s boyfriend, they are joined by Legite Deror. The group then journeys to the Dark World to rescue the missing noviates. Between the pull Anna feels for Deror and an interesting power that pops up during the trip, I couldn’t put the book down for a second! I’m looking forward to reading more of Angel Academy novels as Skye writes them.

Anna Hasdiel attends Hope Academy, a secret school for angels in training. They train to be warriors to protect the human race from demons. To be a warrior you must be the best, and this is Anna's goal. To be the best warrior, the best sister, what could go wrong. When young noviates begin disappearing The powers that be send in reinforcements to keep the others safe. Legite Nathaniel Deror is sent to protect noviates and he cant seem to make up his mind to either protect Anna or stay far from her. When Anna's sister Amalie's boyfriend disappears they set off to find him. Devoted started a bit slow but most stories do. They need to get the reader caught up on the history of the characters and the story. Once I got past the history BAM! Emery Skye smacked me upside the head and got my attention. Anna is a seven-teen year old noviate determined to be the best and become a warrior. She does not want any other distractions, especially Nathaniel. Anna is strong, fierce, and a determined character...which I love~! Emery Skye did an amazing job for her debut novel and I hope to see more amazing things from her and this series. This novel does have a cliff hanger just to forewarn y'all. Who doesn't love one of those though! especially when it contains mystery, intrigue, angels, and Lucifer....come on! *Reviewer for Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock!

I was a little hesitant picking this up as it's a new novel, but it exceeded my expectations. Devoted has strong characters and interesting look at duty with a relevant message and a killer cliffhanger. it's all here. I think Anna has a lot to learn about life like most seventeen-year-olds, but she's well on her way. Great book!
