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*

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*
