Zodiac Academy 6: Fated Throne by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the sixth book in the Supernatural bullies and beasts series.

Fate has torn us apart and sometimes I believe the stars have given up on us altogether.

Without my sister, the world seems darker than ever before and the shadows loom thicker, rising up to answer the call of the Shadow Princess and changing the face of Solaria for good.

Now Lionel Acrux has the strength to make a move for the throne, I’m not sure how much time we have left to stop him.

Our only hope is to find the Imperial Star before he does. We made the sacrifice the stars called for and we’re paying the price for that decision so it can’t be for nothing.

But with the stars turning against us at every move, and the last light in the world seeming to fade, I’m afraid we’re almost out of time.

Hope is a dangerous thing. It’s the key to us fighting on. But it could be what destroys us in the end.

One thing is for certain, I won’t stop until I have been reunited with my other half and together we will fight to take our crowns.

A war is coming.

The throne is calling for a new monarch.

And someone must answer its call.

I’ll try and make this series as spoiler free as I can manage, but this book wasn’t half a roller-coaster of a ride to read.

I absolutely love this series. It’s absolutely fantastic. The storyline is amazing, the characters are absolutely brilliant and the plot keeps developing well.

F#cking Lionel.

It was amazing how much I said those words. Jesus christ that man is a monster. I’ve never hated anyone a much as I hate that dragon. He’s just… Ugh. The whole way through this book he was ughh. He keeps getting worse and worse. I can’t wait to see that monster of a man die.

I felt so sorry for his family. Catalina, Xavier and Darius put up with so much shit. My heart went out for them with the way he treats them. At least there was a small bit of good in this book with Catalina.

I loved Xavier and Geraldine’s chapters in this book. I love them both. It was brilliant to see Xavier come into his own in the academy, and seeing him with Sofia and wanting to become the Dom. There was plenty of humour. Geraldine is just the best. I love her. Tory and Darcy are so lucky to have her support, even if she’s a little over the top at time. I love her relationship with Max as well. I seriously hope that they end up together at some point.

Caleb and Seth were both brilliant together in this book. I loved it when Rosalie made an appearance. I seriously hope these two admit their feelings to each other at some point. They were annoyingly close at one point.

This book seemed to be the King of interrupting good moments.

The Heirs in general all became fantastic. It’s amazing how I hated them at the beginning and love them all now. Their support for helping Darcy and Tory is brilliant, and their willingness to risk their lives for them is endearing.

Oh god, my heart went out for Tory in this book. Jesus christ, what she went through with Lionel. That monster of a man. It was so hard to read her being Guardian Bonded to daddy dragon. I loved what Darcy and the others did for her and eventually she owned that shit.

Lionel Acrux seriously needs to die though.

Clara is a phycho. I loved what we learnt about her though. It was satisfying to learn more about the Shadow Princess. I really want to see that bitch die though. Even at the end, the bloody shadows. Gah. What the hell had that bitch done to Darcy at the end? There better be a way to fix it.

Darcy was absolutely fantastic in this book. She was so fierce and strong. I loved that she got everyone pheonix weapons. I loved her relationship with Seth in this book. He’s a fantastic friend and I loved seeing him trying to make Lance jealous.

Lance Orion is the best. I’m in love with him. I loved what happened to him in this book, although it wasn’t freedom either. His relationship with Darcy is everything, and as frustrating as it is, I was kind of glad that she didn’t forgive him straight away. He needed to grovel.

I don’t want to spoil too much, but the moments at the end between them were everything

Amongst everything going wrong, there was still plenty of humour. Geraldine in general, Xavier and his dijazzle.

I loved the prophecies, even though they are very cryptic. Gabriel is the best. Thank god he’s there, because he is literally saving everyone’s lives.

The stars are arseholes.

Darius. Holy shit, what have you done? The ending. God, I seriously hope that there’s a way around it. That sacrifice. Ahh. I get that he needed to agree to it, because it was the reason that everyone got away at the end. But by the stars, there has to be a way to change it. I don’t think I can cope if there isn’t.

I loved the moments he got with Tory and the fact he agreed to that price shows his love for her. I hope they make the most of it and steal the moments they never got to have.

The ending was brilliant and rather than a cliffhanger, it was a more natural place to stop. The whole ending was excellent, exciting, tense, action packed. Par what Darius did, it was brilliant. I loved the fact everyone was there to help.

At least they had a small win against Lionel… Kind of. I have to hand it to our Celestial Authors…

Overall, this is one of my favourite series, and our Celestial Authors have completely outdone themselves again. This book was a emotional roller-coaster. I would completely recommend this series, although you have to start from the beginning with book 1. I can’t wait for the next book, the final book in the series.

P.S f#cking Lionel.

And apologies for the language, but that’s the best way I can sum up my feelings towards Lionel Acrux.

My rating: 5/5*

Kings of Anarchy (Brutal Boys of Everlake Prep Book 3) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the 3rd book in the Brutal Boys of Everlake Prep series.

My father always taught me to take care of myself.

He made me strong, cunning and calculating.

But my Brutal Boys made me unbreakable.

Have you ever heard the saying that it takes one to know one? Because from the very first moment I met the men I’ve claimed as my tribe, I knew that I was looking into the faces of monsters. And that really should have been all it took for me to know that I was one too.

Hiding beneath my skin isn’t an innocent girl, waiting for someone to ride in on a white horse and rescue me from my demons. So I think it’s time I showed the world my claws.

I’m sick of people thinking they own me. My Night Keepers and now the members of this twisted club all need to learn a lesson in that.

I’m not a doll made to dance to their tune, I’m not a puppet intended to play a part and I’m certainly no plaything to be used and destroyed. I’m a warrior with a goal of my own. And everyone who wants to stand in my way had better get used to the idea of falling to ruin at my feet.

When everything you thought you could rely on is ripped away from you, you have no choice but to find out what you’re truly made of. And deep down in the depths of my soul, I know that I was made to survive.

I have suffered through torment, fought against my oppressors and tamed the creatures who tried to bury me in the dark.

It’s time that everyone stopped underestimating me.

I’m done being a queen without a crown.

I’m ready for my coronation.

As much as I try to keep my reviews spoiler free, I’m afraid this one may not be.

Holy shit on a stick, what a book!

But 🦑🧅🐙

This book was absolutely fantastic. The characters are the best, the storyline is brilliant and the plot developed well.

I love Tatum. She is such a strong character. She’s determined, strong willed, and kind of wild and her connection with each of the boys is fantastic. After the end of the last book with what she’s been through, you’d expect her broken, but she isn’t. She’s a fighter and she makes herself into a warrior. She turns herself into a queen. Their queen.

I absolutely love all 4 boys. Each of them have their own individual traits. Blake is brilliant. He’s fun yet crazy. Kyan’s relationship really developed in this book with her, and I loved learning more about his crazy family. Saint is kind of frustrating with his OCD and his rules, especially in the first half of the book, but he definitely grew on me as the book went on. I hope he gives in to his desires in the next book.

I absolutely love Nash Monroe and he is definitely my favourite. He has become one of my book boyfriends for sure. I absolutely love how his relationship has developed with Tatum and even with the other three Night Keepers. The way he treats her is fantastic and I loved his idea of date night. I even love the fact that the truth is in the open with the other three now. His connection with Tatum is just hot and it makes me almost jealous 🙄.

The relationship between all five of them is just fantastic.

The storyline was absolutely brilliant. The plot continues to develop and there’s always new twists and turns occurring.

The ending. Gah. Caroline and Susanne are literally the only authors who have me shouting at my kindle. Their books make me laugh and they make me shout. They are the queen’s of cliffhangers. I knew there was going to be one, especially after the dedication at the beginning, but seriously? I still shouted at the end.

This series is a masterpiece, and I think you’re missing out if you don’t read it. I’d definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

P.S 🦑

Filthy Rich Boys (Rich Boys of Burberry Prep Book 1) by C.M. Stunich

This is the first book in the Rich Boys of Burberry Prep series.

Description
Break the new girl.
That should be easy, right?
Trash like her doesn’t belong at Burberry Prep.
No, Marnye Reed is going down, and we plan to make a spectacle out of it.
Let’s see who can make her fall in love first.
Bet’s on. Any takers?


Take on the filthy rich boys.
They’re the idols of the school, veritable gods on earth.
Old Money. New money. A rising star.
These guys are nothing like the ones at my old school.
I might come from nothing, but I’m determined to be someone, and I won’t let them get in my way.
They say they’ll make my life a living hell; I think they mean to keep that promise.

This book was brilliant to read. The characters are good, the storyline is great and the plot developed well.

The first chapter does give away the ending, but it didn’t change how great this book was to read, and how the ending comes to happen.

Marnye was a great character. She’s strong and determined, if not a little naieve at times. She was far too trusting and should have known better, but she don’t half have a backbone. You can’t fault her will power though. She gets bullied by everyone time and time again, but always comes through on top.

The boys were great too. Creed, Zayd and Tristan, the Idols, are cruel. Each one had their own personality and each one an absolute dick. The whole way through, you know the small kind streak was going to end, but the way it ends was still unexpected and harsh. I feel like the chemistry between them had some truth in it, bet or no bet, and I’m looking forward to seeing where this leads.

The girls were so much worse though. They were so bitchy and I really hope they get what’s coming to them.

The storyline was great. There were plenty of twists thrown in, and the ending leaves you wanting to read more. I hope she comes back and shows those boys that they’ve messed with the wrong girl, and I hope they realise just what they’ve done.

Overall, this book was brilliant to read and I’d definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*

The Angels (Raven River Academy Book 1) by Ruby Vincent

This is the first book in the Raven River Academy series.

My parents forgot something when they ran… me.


After scamming most of our town out of their life savings, my folks disappeared in the middle of the night.

Forced to take me in, my estranged aunt and uncle shipped me off to Raven River Academy the first chance they got.

In my town, the line between the haves and the have-nots is actually a twelve-foot gate that keep the unwanted where they belong. Nothing could unite the two factions until I set foot on campus.

For the first time in our history, they all agree on one thing:

I must pay for my father’s sins.

But why should I care?

The joke is on them because I have nothing left inside. No part of me that isn’t already broken. I invite them to do their worst.

Until The Angels enter the game.

The most dangerous gang in town has a score to settle with my family, and Cassius, Clay, Hiro, and Royal are here to collect.

Raven River soon becomes a battleground of lies, deceit, and violence, and I stand at the heart of it.

The gorgeous otherworldly Angels will remind me that there is one thing left that I care about… and they’ll destroy it in heavenly fire.

I enjoyed reading this book. The storyline was good and the plot developed well. I loved the characters as well.

Ember was a great main character. She was strong and determined, but also kind. She was ruthless when she wanted to be as well.

The bullying she received was harsh, but the way she dealt with it all was great. Like I said, she’s strong.

I liked the boys in the end, but they were massive dicks to begin with. Especially Royal and Hiro. Cass and Clay were the better ones and by the end, I loved them two.

I enjoyed watching Embers relationship with the boys developed. Her relationship with Royal was an interesting one, and by the end I liked him. Her relationship with Cass was fantastic and I really hope she develops the same thing with his brother Clay. Hiro hasn’t grown on me much yet. He just seem a little grumpy and miserable.

The beginning was a little slow and it took me a little while to get into it, but the more we learnt about the Angels and Horseman, and about what her parents did, the more it grabbed my attention. The ending was brilliant.

Rio turned out to be quite an unexpected character, although a massive dick. I’m intrigued to see what happens next after that cliffhanger.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book.

My rating: 4/5*

Broken Fae (Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac Book 4) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the 4th book in the Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac series.

Me and my kings have come as close to breaking as I ever could have feared.

Just as we were finding a way to get past our difficulties, the stars have torn us apart. Can I fight against the will of the heavens or does fate have something unforeseen in store for me now?

While we’e reeling from the wheel of fate and trying to find a way to move on with our lives, our enemies are only growing more powerful.

Felix Oscura is haunting Alestria with his bloodthirsy need to steal the power of the clan he was never destined to rule over. And the illusive King is growing closer to their goal of taking control of the entire city and maybe even beyond.

With challenges around every corner and the mysteries behind my brother’s death slowly starting to unravel, will I be able to piece everything together and find a way to overcome the will of the stars before it’s too late?

This book was absolutely fantastic. The storyline was brilliant and the characters continued to develop well.

I absolutely love Elise. She’s such a strong and determined character. I love her connection to all the boys as well.

Gabriel is my favourite, and he came out of himself in this book. I loved seeing him with the other 3, and his growing relationship with Ryder is fantastic. Both of them are great together.

I also love Leon and Dante. Leon makes me laugh. He’s brilliant. I enjoyed seeing his relationship with Elise develop after their newfound bond. Dante is just a brilliant character and my heart went out to him after the whole Lionel incident. That man is an absolute monster and I hope he gets what he deserves in the Zodiac Academy series. I also loved seeing a young Rosalie in this book.

The storyline was brilliant. It was great to see the moments between the 4 men and Elise. Christmas was brilliant to read. The relationship and gang situation between Dante and Ryder was done so well. The situation with King also developed well, although holy shit, the ending.

I can’t wait to read the next book, because as usual, what a cliffhanger. This series is absolutely fantastic and I would definitely recommend it. All of the Solaria book are fantastic, (Zodiac Academy, Darkmore Penitentiary.) This world is simply fantastic.

My rating: 5/5

Zodiac Academy: The Big A.S.S Party by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is a Novella set in the Zodiac Academy series, which falls between books 5 and 6.

Once upon a moon, the wild wind whispered in my ear that the true queens were returning to Solaria and I made it my mission to open up their path to the throne so that they could slip right in like an oily oyster.

Now, on this most special and wonderous of days, the very day of their birth – I will prove myself to be the most loyal and dependable of their followers. Though of course, Venus is in my chart and Lady Petunia has caught sight of the bothersome barracuda once more.

Max Rigel is my most sinful of temptations, the shark in the dark who wishes to lure me to his sea cave and I don’t know if I’m Fae enough to resist him for long.

But one thing is for sure, I will make certain the Vegas get the big A.S.S. they deserve for their birthday or I’ll die trying. Succulent squids be damned!

This was a brilliant story. The plot was great and it was a great filler to go between the main books.

Geraldine is the best, and it was fantastic to get inside her head, and I absolutely love the relationship she has with Max.

Seeing Tory and Darcy from her point of view great, but it brought back all of the heartbreak from book 5.

The humour in this book was wonderful, but that was just Geraldine herself. She’s hilarious and I kind of wish that I had a Geraldine in my life.

Even in a Novella, our Celestial Authors had to add a twist at the end. I really hope that Max wins her over in the end.

Overall, this was a brilliant Novella which fills the gaps from book 5 brilliantly. I would definitely recommend reading it, but only if you’ve already read Zodiac Academy: Cursed Fates.

My rating: 5/5*

Academy of the Forgotten (Cursed Studies Book 1) by Eva Chase

This is the first book in the Cursed Studies series

Three haunted young men. A terrible curse. One girl who could break it… if this place doesn’t break her first.

From the first time my parents decided that getting their next hit mattered more than keeping me fed, I learned I couldn’t trust anyone—until Cade. My foster brother took me under his wing and sheltered me from the worst of the crap thrown at us.

So when he heads off on an exclusive scholarship and everyone around me starts denying he ever existed, Roseborne College has some explaining to do. I’m not leaving until I get answers.

The school I barge into isn’t what I pictured. The staff claim Cade’s never been here. The students glare like just looking at me offends them. The classes involve more torment than teaching, while sobs and howls fill the night. And three very different, unnervingly appealing guys—one of them a teacher—act way too invested in my arrival.

Some unnatural power holds this place in its grip. The more I dig, the more horrors I uncover. Finding Cade might not be my biggest problem after all. It’s looking like none of us, me included, will escape this place alive.

I enjoyed reading this book. The storyline was good, the characters were great and the plot developed well.

Trix was a good character. She was strong and stubborn. She’s also thinking about others more than herself although she is also very much a damaged soul.

I liked the three boys. Each of them are different. I feel like Ryo stood out more than the others although Jenson was also an interesting character. I feel like that there’s more to them than we know yet. Elias was my favourite. He’s protective although he’s keeping things back and I feel like there’s some tension between them that needs an outlet.

I’m looking forward to seeing how her relationship with each of them develops.

The storyline was definitely different. There’s many mysteries in this place which were only just seeing the surface off. I’m interested to know more about what’s happened to her brother.

My only criticism is that it took a little while for the pace to pick up. It was only the second half of the book where the action started to happen.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend this book. The storyline was good and the characters are great. I’m intrigued to see what happens in the next book.

My rating: 4/5*

Royals of Villain Academy 4: Horrid Charms by Eva Chase

This is the 4th book in the Royals of Villain Academy series

Every time I turn around, new opponents are looking to knock me down. No part of the magical community is safe. And now my enemies have left me with a horrible accusation hanging over my head, using so many tricks I can barely defend myself.

If I want to clear my name and keep my freedom, I have to turn to the guys who once made my life hell. They’ve changed their tune and made amends, but how far can I really count on them? Especially if they discover that my greatest foes are within their families.

I’m going to have to find out. The truth can’t stay hidden forever. But no matter what the villains in the university and beyond it throw at me, I won’t give in. I’m the last of the Bloodstones… and hanging onto that role may be the only way I can save everything that matters to me.

I enjoyed reading this book. The storyline is great, the characters are great and the plot developed well.

The storyline led on well from the last book. It was good to see how Rory dealt with everything that has happened. She’s a brilliant, strong character. She’s always trying to do good even though she’s been thrown into this new life where fear is everything. I love how she’s growing as a character.

I love how the 4 guys have developed. They all started out as complete arseholes, but now I actually like them all. Declan is my favourite and I was so happy to see him actively supporting Rory in this book. I also love Jude. He genuinely loves Rory and has opened himself up to her. Connar is also great. Malcolm has taken the longest to grow on me, but he did in this book. He’s finally trying to be decent towards her and I loved the fact he apologised.

I’m looking forward to seeing how the plot develops in the next book. The Barons are plotting against Rory, and I’m looking forward to seeing how that develops.

I love the types of magic in this series. It’s different to other books I have read.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend this series. It’s got great characters and a great storyline.

My rating: 5/5*
