Zodiac Academy: Origins of an Academy Bully by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is a prequel novella to Zodiac Academy: The Awakening, the first book in the Supernatural Bullies and Beasts series.

Dark magic is forbidden at Zodiac Academy.

That’s why I hide it so well.

But now I’m supposed to mentor Darius Acrux: the son of the most ruthless Dragon Shifter in Solaria.

If he’s caught using blood magic, he’ll lose his claim to the throne.

The problem is? Our families are up to something, and we’re determined to find out what. No matter what dark power we must turn to…

This was an interesting insight to Darius and Lance Orion. It puts an understanding to their behaviour in Zodiac Academy: The Awakening.

They come across down to earth in this book, but being controlled by their families. The consequences unfortunately make then revengeful and bitter.

I still don’t particularly like Darius in Zodiac Academy:The Awakening, despite his background. He really is a right bully in it, and I don’t think his background is enough of an excuse for some of his behaviour.

The insight on Orion also had just made me even more intrigued about him. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

I would definitely recommend reading this along with the Supernatural Bullies and Beasts series.

My rating: 5/5*
