Darkmore Penitentiary 2: Captive Fae (Supernatural Prison for Dark Fae) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the second book in the Supernatural Prison for Dark Fae series.

I came here with a single goal in mind. An aim. A purpose.
I will break out of Darkmore Penitentiary.

But I was a fool to think that it would be so simple. And now with more and more Fae relying on me to get them out of this slice of hell, I find myself unable to do a damn thing.

Mason Cain stabbed me in the back and left me to rot in the dark. So now I have another goal in mind before I escape this place, because no one messes with the Queen of the Oscura Clan and lives to tell the tale. The moment I get out of this place, my sights will be set on him.

Between the four alpha males luring me in, the psychopaths trying to kill me and the monster roaming the halls at night, I have my hands full in here.

But one thing is for sure. I’m not throwing my life away in this place.

So I’ll do whatever it takes to escape.

This was absolutely fantastic. The storyline was brilliant, the characters are great and once again, our Celestial Authors have outdone themselves.

Rosalie is such a strong feisty character. After spending that amount of time in the hole, and coming out of it sane, she deserves a darn medal. I love her relationship with all of the guys, and love how it’s developing with each of them. Her group therepy sessions were absolutely hilarious, and I loved how Cain reacted to them.

Mason Cain has stolen my heart. I absolutely love him. He is an absolute stronzo for sure, but he let out his softer side at moments in this book. Once Rosalie told him what her father did to her, he felt bad for what he’d done. He’s growing relationship with her is absolutely brilliant and I loved the moment he gave in to his desires. Mason at the end though… Oh my god, I was feeling so sorry for him. I sure as hell hope that Rosalie isn’t too much of a arse towards him in the next book, and I hope he does actually help her.

I love Sin. He’s hilarious, but bloody hell he doesn’t listen. I also love Ethan. It was great to see him finally grow some balls towards the end of the book. Both of them with Rosalie was hot as hell.

Roary is probably least favourite out of them, although I do still like him. I just don’t see the natural chemistry between him and Rosalie, but that may be because he keeps holding back. He deserves to get out of this prison, and I sure as help he does. I hope they all do.

I set myself up for everything to go wrong at the end. It was all going too well and nothing ever goes that well. I didn’t expect it to happen the way it did though and I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book now that they have a deadline. I’m also intrigued to see how the news about phych will play out.

Our Celestial Authors need to keep some food sacred. Is nothing safe? Gah. Thank for ruining more food items I love.

I love all of the easter eggs we get, but I have so many questions.

Who is Benjamin Acrux? What the hell happened with Darius? What happened with Ryder? Gahhh

This book was absolutely fantastic. I love the storyline and the characters are absolutely fantastic. All the books in Solaria are fantastic and I would definitely recommend them all.

P.S I love Mason Cain.

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*

Alchemy Academy: Shadow Cove (Book 2)

Alchemy Academy: Shadow Cove (Book 2) is up for pre-order and is scheduled to be released on the 15th June 2020.

My Chaos is free, but that fretful night had come at a cost.
Erebus knew, and he wanted me.
My only chance was to gain my freedom from him, but I needed that Ruby.

Unfortunately, life had to go on and if I stood any chance of fitting in, I needed to turn up to lessons.
The only certainty I had in my life was Levi.
With my bond with him strengthening, and my mind struggling to focus, problems were bound to get in my way because nothing was ever that simple.

I planned on getting that Ruby though, one way or another.

Why not check out Alchemy Academy (Book 1) before book 2 is released.

It’s also free on Kindle Unlimited.

Welcome to Alchemy Academy.
We’ll give you the building blocks to harness your natural power and control your magic. You’ll learn to let the waters flow and let the fire burn strong, to let the earth shake and the winds blow. The only limit is yourself.

I was never meant to be on this island, but my own curiosity got the better of me. The Shadowmaster let me stay for whatever reason. Everyone seems to be able to do magic, except me.
Yes, magic is indeed real.
I don’t belong here.
But I’m Roxy. I make the best of any situation and this one will be no different.

Zodiac Academy 5: Cursed Fates by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

This is the 5th book in the Zodiac Academy series.

After the devastating events at Zodiac Academy, we have to deal with this darker world we’re faced with.
Lionel seeks to hurt us, the Nymphs seek to hurt the entire Fae race, and between all of it, we just have to try and survive each day as it comes.
I’m afraid of everything falling apart, but it looks like it already has.

I normally try and make my reviews spoiler free, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to for this one, so just a little warning.

This book was brilliant. It brought me on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride. It’s ripped my heart out at moments. It’s made me laugh. It’s made me frustrated. I don’t think I’ve ever shouted at a book as much as I did with this one.

I’ve said it in my reviews of the last books and I’ll say it again.

Darcy and Lance Orion’s relationship is everything. And what have you done? You’ve taken away the only bit of good happening in this series. I absolutely love Lance. He’s brilliant and totally my book boyfriend. But the self sacrificeing, righteous idiot needs his head smashed against a wall and some sense shoved into him.

I swear, if this situation doesn’t get itself fixed, I’m going to have an absolute fit.

Tory and Darius are fantastic together. Tory was an absolute idiot to turn him down, and it was brilliant to see her finally come to terms with what she has done. I do understand where she was coming from, but it was still the wrong choice. I loved the way their relationship grew in this book, even though the stars are forcing them apart. The moments they were able to have together were brilliant.

By the stars, there better be a way to reverse this. They both finally want each other and they both deserve to find happiness together.

I love the relationship between the twins and all the other heirs. They’re all getting on and starting to work together. Caleb is the world’s best friend after everything he has done for Darius and Tory and everything he does for Seth. Max and Geraldine and absolutely fantastic together. I never thought that I would grow to like all of the Heirs, particularly Seth.

I loved Xavier in this book. I loved what Tory done for him. His photoshoot was brilliant.

The ending was a shocker. Diago. Who would have guessed that about hat boy?

I look forward to the day when I can read Lionel Acrux die. It better happen. It needs to happen. Daddy Acrux is an absolute monster of a man and I hope he suffers for everything he has done. And Clara. Jesus wept, what is wrong with her. The Shadows have taken away her humanity and left a psycho behind and her relationship with Lionel is just wrong.

Tory. Why can’t something just go right for her? Once again, daddy dragon needs to suffer for what he has done. Just when you thought he couldn’t do much worse, he does. He took things that one step further. I really hope Tory is strong enough to fight this.

I absolutely love Gabriel. I suspected about his relationship with the twins and I’m so glad that it’s the case. At least something good happened in this book. I hope he finds some answers and is able to help things in the next book.

Lance Orion. Why why why? I’m so mad about what happened. Kylie deserves everything she gets and I seriously hope that we get to see more happen to her. I am literally in despair over what has happened to him, and he made it so much worse for himself.

Our Celestial Authors have outdone themselves with this book. The crossovers with other characters in the spin-off series are fantastic. But by all the stars in the sky, I don’t think I can cope if Lance doesn’t get out of there and that situation not get fixed.

I cannot recommend this series enough. It’s a roller-coaster of a ride. That’s the wonder of brilliant writing. You shout at the book, the feel your heart being ripped out for the characters and you immerse yourself into this world.

My rating: 5/5*

Finch Merlin and the Everlasting Vow by Bella Forrest

This is the 15th book in the Harley Merlin series and the 6th one in the Finch Merlin series.

No more Mr. Nice Guy…

Finch is tired of people jerking him around—and now, it’s time for payback against the powerful forces who have made him a pawn in their games. Returning to the surface world is his endgame, but while that seems nearly impossible, especially when a certain Necromancer and demigod have teamed up to take Finch out of the running, Finch plans to use all the tricks up his sleeve on his enemies. And before he’s force-fed the love potion that will ensure he loves Princess Kaya forever.

Good thing Shapeshifters are known for their trickery.

I love this series and enjoyed reading this book. The characters are brilliant and the storyline is great. The plot developed at a good pace, although this one was a little slower than the past books.

Finch is a brilliant character and has been the whole way through the series. He’s having so much bad luck happen to him, and it only gets worse in this book. I’m feeling sorry for him.

Erebus surprised me in this book. He’s been this big bossy, evil Child of Chaos the whole way through, but in this book, we saw a little humanity to him.

Kaya has been a very surprising character. She’s come across all nice until nearer the end. It was interesting to get in her head in this book, and trying to see her point of view on things, but she really isn’t listening to anyone else.

The storyline has been great, although in this book, it developed a little slower. It was interesting to see more of Atlantis and their way of life. The last few chapters made up for the slow development though. I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen next and how Finch could possiblly fix the situation.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this series. The characters and storyline are great.

My rating: 5/5*
