Summary

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.

The Series That Blows Me Away

I absolutely adore this series, it's my ultimate fave, but to be lucky enough to have Bridget and Jake narrate it too is the icing on the cake. Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Oh my stars! Spellbound

Oh my stars!! To say this series is utterly addictive is an understatement. I’m truly spellbound.
The heirs are finally back in my favour, but the twins can’t seem to find a lasting moment of happiness. This entire book has been a roller coaster- and Lionel Acrux is undoubtedly the most villainous villain ever!!
I’m so mad at lance rn even though I understand his PoV
Can’t wait to dive into book the next book.

Cursed Fates

This is the fifth book in the Zodiac Academy series. This book is crazy intense. As the stars had brought Darius and Tory together, they are now trying to tear them apart. I guess nothing will ever come easy for the Vega twins. My heart is broken right now. Caroline and Susanne how could you do me like this and end the book like this! Bridget and Jake Bordeaux did a fabulous job narrating this book.

The story has drama, tension, strength, well thought out and crafted characters, You see Character growth from the heirs and Darcy and Tory . As you go more into the story your heart will be broken and cry .

Bridget Bordeaux, Jake Bordeaux Performance is unbelievable. You won’t believe how they will pull you into the story and you’ll think your right beside the characters.

Great books but needs to expand vocabulary

love this book and series,
But over use of the word "FLESH" and "MOAN" thru all books is starting to annoy me.

I LOVE this series.

When I say love I equally mean hate because wow the emotional turmoil that rips you apart is utterly intense. This book follows on with Tory and Darcie’s trials and tribulations from the heirs (although a kind of truce is in place), Lionel Acrux to the nymphs. There’s so much going on but you can’t help but be dragged into this incredible world that completely immerses you especially when you listen to the amazing audio version narrated by Bridget and Jake Bordeaux. I love the fact that these narrators make each character sound different enough that you know exactly who is who even when it’s the twins! And don’t get me started on how absolutely perfect Geraldine sounds! This is one heck of a book and honestly I’m on an emotional cliff right now needing the next one! The temptation to read the next book buuut so far I’ve waited on for each audiobook so I shall continue to with this amazing narration!

Getting tired.

I'm exhausted by these books at this point. These characters are so astoundingly stupid for people with magic that it makes me want to bang my head against the wall in anger. It's maddening. They make the same horrible choices over and over without learning from them, act like absolute idiots, and make me wonder why I'm bothering with this series at this point. The amount of text that could be purged from these novels could write an encyclopedia, and I'm uncertain if the author was just THAT into the story or was pushed to make it longer and more repetitive with the same plot points circling again and again for fluff because the publisher wanted that or something. I understand on some level why it would make some sense but it's bordering on silly now. I don't know, maybe it's in purpose and we'll need all the extra fluff at the end of the series to understand? I hope so. But this cycles of the Vegas getting the upper hand, someone pushing them back down, they get back up a little stronger, some hurts them more deeply, etc. etc. is so annoying when it feels like they learn something from it, but only about 10% of what they need to be gleaning and it's infuriating, especially with Tori. With Darcy, I think she became unhinged a little when she didn't have Orion as an anchor anymore and I get her impulsivity and recklessness, oddly. But Tori should know better at this point, after how many times it continues to get her into trouble and how she seems to have grown, that part just remains. I have always favored her, always felt a kindred spirit in her with her fearless attitude, love for motorbikes, and take no s***s attitude, but I get so frustrated with her decisions, all of the character's decisions, that I wanna stop reading at times. I could almost believe dark coercion was a real thing, since this series could almost be proof of it alone. I hate it with such passion at times and love it so much at the same time and feel compelled to continue as I rage at it. If I had a physical copy, theyd be battered at this point from me throwing them at the wall. I can't deny how into the story I am, and I kind of love it and kind of hate it. The problem is that these characters and the series is a NON-STOP FREIGHT TRAIN OF MISERY, and I'm too sensitive so I end up internalizing what's happening as if I'm going through it too. This has resulted in my mood being quite foul for the past week and a half or so every time I listen to these books, and I hate how I can't help but feel it and even know that's why I feel it but be unable to stop myself from being cranky when I'm listening and I'm interrupted, especially during the angsty scenes. But beyond my complaining lies a deep respect for this series that I can't shake, even with my irritation at how it's been done. I begrudgingly love it, and while I'm ready for the ride to finish up so I can get my pound of flesh on the behalf of both sisters and see them happy, I have enjoyed the ride. The good and the bad, even if I'm too much of an empath to handle it well, I loved it anyways. Can't help it, like I'm Bering dark coerced to love it while I also writhe in denial due to the way it's twisted my own emotions. I think a small break is in order before finishing up the last one.

Disgusting ending way too far to like

I have been obsessed with this story but the ending was way too much for me. If she mates with this this guy it will be over for me. That’s too far. Way too far. These characters are so amazing. But this is way too far of a sick twist for me. The narrators are the best I’ve ever listened to!!

UGH

I read the first books then purchased this one on audio book. I have never HATED a performance more than I hated this one. It was so difficult to listen to that I ended up just reading it. The female narrator sounded like she was whining and crying throughout the entire story .

Okay…

I love this series but, I just feel like it being dragged out too long, and the girls cannot catch a break… how does Lionel keeps on succeeding with his evil plans. Still I’ll be waiting for the rest of the books to be on audible.

The male narrator XD

Don't get me wrong. Both narrators and the story are phenomenal.

However!! Can we all smirk at the fact that he read "Faetalian accent" and the characters that speak it, and somehow to him that equalled a Jersey accent?? Ew.

Frustrating Spoilers

I hate how overpowered some of this is, it doesn't make sense..a guardian bond can be cast in all of 30 seconds and not be consensual...dumb ho can completely control everyone's shadows... I genuinely haven't seen a benefit to having them for anyone other than her and "daddy" in this entire series.
I really hoped it would've wrapped up here...but no. gotta have a whole nother book about an OP star rock and whoever gets it wins. probably the fix to all of Roxys problems.

Drags

This series started out strong and had so much potential. The last 3 books have dragged on and on and are so repetitive. There is nothing more annoying when authors make fillers books.
The worst part for me is endless hardships that Tori and Darcy face. They are just so ridiculous at this point.
I have decided to wait until the series ends before I continue listening. This way I can skip to the last book and avoid all the unnecessary garbage in between!

Just Disgusted

I started strong with this series but now I'm just over it. There are too many books with no resolve. Tory and Darius are split apart AGAIN, Darcy hasn't grown into her powers and seems to cry the whole damn book, Orion is sitting in penitentiary which prohibits the one relationship that was thriving, Seth, Caleb, and AquaMan (don't remember his name after 5 books), are great supporting characters but not strong enough to make me purchase the next book.
