Title: Prophecy Girl
Author: Cecily White
Publisher: Entangled Teen

About the book: 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?


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. 

My thoughts:  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.

About the author: Cecily Cornelius-White, Psy.D. makes a habit of avoiding boredom whenever possible. She has enjoyed careers as a hand model, GAP salesgirl, movie projectionist, psychotherapist, yoga instructor, university professor, artist, dance choreographer, eating disorders specialist, psych diagnostician, book reviewer and copy editor. None of which are as much fun as writing novels.

She currently lives in Springfield, MO with two FABULOUS kids, and a schizophrenic yet well-mannered cat. She can swear in Klingon, take down an alien aggressor using only her mind (or a pair of chopsticks), and kill giant spiders without getting schmutz on her shirt.

When not singing to herself, she spends time creating new worlds and thinking up ways to make this one better…
