North to Nara (Crimson Sash, #1)North to Nara by Amanda Marin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

North to Nara (Crimson Sash #1) by Amanda Marin was a really good book. I think it demonstrates how many of us start out. We think we live in a wonderful world, everything looks perfect, everything seems perfect. Little by little we see the worms in the apple. Neve begins to see the worms in the apple when Micah catches her eye and suddenly nothing is as it seems. This is a great introduction to wonderful series.

Tompkin’s School: For The Extraordinarily Talented (A Supernatural Academy Trilogy Book 1) by Tabi Slick – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur

Tompkin's School For The Extraordinarily Talented (Supernatural Trilogy #1)Tompkin’s School For The Extraordinarily Talented by Tabi Slick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a tale of transferring to a new high school, in a new place and let’s not forget that it is a boarding school as well. This tale starts with a landing plane and setting off to a new, unknown place and the one who pick’s the new passengers to take them to their new home, is none other than a local policeman who takes them to stay with him and his family for the night, before hitching a ride with his son to the new school the next day. While looking out of the car window, a realisation hits that the new school is in the middle of nowhere and that there will be nothing interesting there.

On arrival there is something a bit unusual and off about the new school and from driving up to the gates, the place and the people within it are astounding, but not all for the best reasons, being shown around, normality resurfaces with the meeting of roommates, finding out what the school year will look like and who the teachers will be.

As everyone at the school starts to settle in, that things are not as they seem and the people are not who they are perceived to be, and the fact that one of them has black wings and shifts into a demon on the full moon, is a lot to handle on top of everything else.

there are twists and turns in this adventure, but will the ties that they develop last the distance, or will this school break those bonds? There are discoveries to find, decisions to be made and mysteries to uncover, how can anyone still maintain who they are as they get through these new challenges and stay in control of the darkness within?

You can only find out by reading the book and it will keep you guessing about what will happen all the way to the end.

Lucifer’s Emblem (Celestial Academy Book 1) By Sarah Biglow and Molly Zeno. This story starts when Lucifer’s emblem is stolen right from under Zuri’s nose. Zuri is lucifers daughter and she is determined to get back her fathers emblem, even if it means changing her identity and infiltrating the Celestial Academy. I loved this book. It is written really well and draws you in form page one. I think it was a great unique story and would highly recommend this book to everyone I know.

Sex-O-S; The Tragicomic Adventure of an Italian Surviving the First Time (Italian Teens, novel 2, The Italian Saga) by Gaia B Amman – Review by Netania Lim

Sex-O-S: The Tragicomic Adventure of an Italian Surviving the First Time (The Italian Saga, #4)Sex-O-S: The Tragicomic Adventure of an Italian Surviving the First Time by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This picks up after the third book and continues the story of Leda and her adventures in young love and growing up as a teenager. I love that although it’s written about teenagers, it’s not written as young adult fiction. It’s really relatable, and the two male main characters, Nico and Ange, are well-developed. Even though sometimes the story seems slightly dramatic, it never goes too far and it’s an enjoyable read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lucifer’s Emblem: A Paranormal Academy Romance by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk is the first book in the Celestial Academy series and is a paranormal book. This book follows Lucifer’s daughter Zuri and her quest to track down Lucifers Emblem that was stolen. This leads her to Celestial Academy where she must create a false identity to even enter. She meets Miryam the daughter of an archangel that has issues of her own. I loved these two and the connection they had. Can the two figures out who stole the emblem and its secrets? Can their bond get past the bad blood between the families? This book was an amazing read and one I highly recommend. Can’t wait to read more in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lucifer’s Emblem is an amazing start to an exciting series adventure you will not be able to put down. As soon as you finish this book, you will be begging for the second book in the series. With the use of dual perspectives throughout the book, the characters become painted so vividly that it is as if you are watching a movie, rather than reading a book.

In this book, you will get to follow a daring adventure as a Fallen child, Zuri, daughter of Lucifer, and Archangel child, Miryam, daughter of Michael, attempt to work together to prevent an Apocalypse after Lucifer’s Emblem is stolen. However, given their differences, it proves difficult for Zuri to trust Miryam. Can Zuri trust Miryam in time to save the world from an apocalypse? Will Miryam believe in herself enough to accomplish this victory? These are only a couple basic questions you will continuously ask until the very last page.

4 Stars!!!!

I have read these authors before and I was really excited to read this the first book in a new series. I was not disappointed. I really found this book to be a great read. The characters are really brought to life as much as supernatural characters can be. I just love the angels and fallen theme to the book. I found that the idea of like a school setting was just an added bonus.

I really like how Miryam and Zuri become friends. I like the structure of the story and how the drama and romance is balanced out within it. I have always loved angel themed books and this is definitely one of my top ten. I will definitely be reading more from these authors in the future.

Lucifer’s Emblem: A Paranormal Academy Novel (Celestial Academy Book 1)
By Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk
4 Stars

I’ve always loved paranormal academy stories. This one is about angels and demons. Zuri is the daughter of a fallen angel and when a powerful relic is stolen, she goes in search of it. It leads her to Celestial Academy, a school for the children of angels. Forming an uneasy alliance with Miryam ( the daughter of Archangel Michael), they search for the culprit before the Apocalypse is unleashed. Will this tentative bond ease the bad blood between the Fallen and the Archangels?

I loved the characters in this novel. Each one was unique and likeable. Zuri is a strong lead who is smart and fearless. Miryam, being her opposite, needs to have faith in herself and learn where her strengths lie. I think they made a very good team. The secondary characters added an interesting aspect to the story as well. This is a good start to what I think will be an awesome series. Looking forward to seeing what their next adventure will be.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk. The story is about The Fallen and Archangels and it was a fun romp throughout. Lucifer’sEmblem is a funny young adult novel that can be enjoyed not only by kids, but by adults as well. Being a part of the story and watching the friendship of Zuri and Miry come together was enjoyable. I really liked the fact that Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk made the heroines different and unique as I think this will help young readers realize this it is okay to be different and unique. Lucifer’s Emblem was funny and had enough adventure to make it a good book to read. I look forward to the next book in this series.
