Zodiac Academy: Fated Throne
by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti
Self - Published
Book 6 in the 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.
Zodiac Academy: Fated Thrones by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti is the sixth book in their Zodiac Academy series, and picks up months after the events of the fifth book. The Vega sisters are split up. Lionel has forced Tory to be his bonded Guardian, and has made her succumb to the shadows, and he is closer than ever to securing the throne for himself. Darcy, and the Heirs refuse to give up though. Darcy will stop at nothing to get stronger, get her sister back, and fight for their crowns, and Darius will not let anything - even the stars - keep him from the woman he loves. Their only hope of getting in the way of Lionel's plans is finding the Imperial Star before him. No matter what happens, war is coming ...
WOAH! Where did this come from? I was literally groaning when I saw the length of this book. Don't get me wrong - I like a girthy (heh.) book - but I try pretty hard to get a review out every other day, and with the length of this book, I didn't think I could get it done. But holy shit. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down. And I have thoughts. So many thoughts. And because SO MUCH happens in this book, I gotta split up. Spoilers will be hidden for those of you who haven't read this book, but I will try to give a general, non spoilery blurb.
Tory - In the past others, including myself, have complained that Tory felt a little one dimensional, and there wasn't a whole lot of growth. This book changes that. Her storyline is dark, and some parts are hard to read, but in true Tory fashion, she finds a way turn it around and make something positive for herself. ---------spoiler --------> In so many ways too. She becomes stronger in her magic, and controlling the shadows after Darcy and the Heirs help pull her out. She learns to control herself and her anger. In the past, she NEVER would have been able to pretend and work undercover. She learns to forgive. Forgive Darius, and herself. Forgive the Heirs and Orion. She forgives but doesn't forget. She won't be steamrolled, and she won't let anyone get away with shit. Hence, Orion's daily dick kicks. lol. Can we celebrate the moment Tory's tore off Lionel's hand, and then burnt it to ash before he could get it back to heal himself. FUCK YES GIRL!<----------------------
