Summary

I’m a Gemini. Impulsive. Curious. Headstrong. A twin. Heir to a throne I know nothing about. And it turns out, I’m Fae. But of course, there’s a catch - all I have to do to claim my birthright is prove that I’m the most powerful supernatural in the whole of Solaria. And sure, technically that’s true, as I’m the daughter of the Savage King. But the bit they didn’t put in the brochure was that every single Fae in this Kingdom would claim my throne if they could. 

The school they’ve sent me to is both dangerous as sh*t and one helluva party. Vampires bite weaker students in the corridors, the Werewolf pack has orgies in the Wailing Wood at every full moon, and don’t even get me started on the dark and twisted ways the Sirens use their powers on people’s emotions, or how my sinfully tempting Cardinal Magic teacher hosts detentions that leave people needing therapy. Classes are totally interesting if you manage to live through them. And that Gemini star sign I mentioned? It now determines my elemental magic and affects my destiny, so learning astrology is essential if I’m going to beat down my classmates - which is actively encouraged, by the way. 

My biggest problem is the droolworthy Dragon shifter who has his eyes on my throne. He and his three psycho friends are determined to make my time here hell. All I’ve got to do is survive. But fate might have other ideas. Dammit, why couldn’t I have gotten a letter to Hogwarts?

This is a dark, bully romance - don’t go expecting a sweet school for magic with friends around every corner. Fae fight for everything they own and Zodiac Academy is a cutthroat school for students aged 18+ where only the strongest prevail. There’s no Dumbledore here to save anyone’s ass, and Lionel Acrux will give Voldemort a run for his money in the evil dictator category. So hold onto your stardust (broomsticks not required) and get ready for a bumpy ride.

I’m Gemini… No wait WE are gemini or WE ARE TWINS

So im just 7 chapters in and I’m considering to put it down.
1. It’s not one main character but 2, twins none the less.
2. The “sexual tension” is the girls being assaulted and bullied by the higher ups.
And 3. It’s the typical “ your from another world and not only that but you are royals”
If it was less attention to how the boys look and actually think that “ hmm, this is assault. Maybe not have that in here and calling it “sexual tension” is the way to go.”
It has potential with the magic and fantasy era, but it misses when it tries to be steamy.
Another thing that bothers me is the miss leading intro to the book. Had it said we are Gemini and we are fae, it would have been more true then “ I am Gemini and I am fae.”
I picked it up on a recommendation from tiktok expecting a bad ass leading lady who tries to build her powers and gets beef with the bad boy of the school who actually falls for her. But was thrown in some mello drama of twin sisters where one is cute and quiet while the other is a total “I don’t care- bitch” and ohh shit they are long lost princesses who went missing years ago.

Meh..

I found the environment and magic system quite interesting and would love to explore in the future. I came into this book with the expectation for it to be steamy, but even still, all I got was a story about girls who talked about being strong, with the story attempting to keep sexual tension as if it was OK, completely glossing over the fact that they were assaulted and bullied. I love enemies to lovers / rival dynamics any day, but this just felt like the twins were dumb, for some reason always focusing on the guys looks, even when they were in situations no real horny person would ever be horny about. Certain scenes it did work, but the horniness was too much, and I've read much spicer stories. There honestly wasn't much pay off for the sexual tension to work and the girls were just punching bags throughout the whole story, where there was constant repetition of the same things about "not letting them get the satisfaction" or "being stronger than they think" with no actions to back it up. I find this to be quite a shame, as I genuinely enjoyed following the characters when they weren't unnecessarily ogling each other. The twist at the end kept me hooked and I think it was well executed especially with Darcy, however I don't know if I'll continue reading as the constant pushing the girls around with not much proper development on their side has put me off. If they learned any proper magic at all or if what they did learn had actual impact, I'd probably overlook the poorly executed sexual tension. I was waiting for one of the to finally snap, and let the heirs show they need to take them more seriously, show SOME potential. However no such thing happened and I felt quite disappointed.

Amazing story &voices thatare velvet for your ears

Loved every minute of this, I’ve read the book before but listening to it I picked up more.
I now only have Bridget’s voice in my head when ever I think or read about Geraldine. The two narrators work Fantastically together and moving from between the different points of view chapters with the narrators is awesome.
I’m not giving any spoilers to the actual story, if you new to Zodiac Academy its got everything in as you go through the series, found family, enemies to lovers, friendship to romance, fated mates, bullying, revenge you name it its packed into the series.
The first book introduces you to the new world, you learn along side the main characters Darcy and Tory, about the world, the rules and people etc its brilliant gradual world building not overloading.
Be warned this book is heavy bullying but as the series progress so do the characters.
Would highly recommend.

I'll be back for more

Well I've been waiting a long time to start Zodiac Academy and I don't know how I feel about it.

Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti have certainly created a world that readers will visit more than once. Even if some of the characters are reprehensible!

I got a 'Harry Potter -The College Years' vibe from The Awakening and will certainly be coming back for more.

The trials and tribulations facing Darcy and Tory have only just begun in this first novel and I'm sure we'll be graced with more shenanigans as the girls' time at The Zodiac Academy progresses.

Perfect audio for this book!

I have read this book before but really fancied a reread so I decided to try it on audible and wow I’m so glad I did!
It’s narrated so well, I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time!
100% recommend!

Couldn't read more

Well, it was a book suggested to me and though I was curious in the beginning and give it a shot.. well, it is not as intriguing as it seems and honestly I got tired because the bullying was constant, everyone is enemy and it is so fake the whole thing.. No, this book lacks adventure and suspense and interesting characters.It lacks many things. The performance was the only good thing.

These ladies could use a thesaurus

The main characters are unfazed by the new world they are thrown into and seem more bothered about the looks of the men that are horrid to them. Get better role models and avoid this book

Bad is an understatement

So poorly written, terrible characters that are somehow all assholes, sadly can't find one redeeming quality about this book.
