Review: Zodiac Academy – The Awakening by Caroline Peckham

Title: The Awakening

Series: Zodiac Academy #1

Author: Caroline Peckham

You have been selected to attend Zodiac Academy, where your star sign defines your destiny.

If you’re one of the Fae, elemental magic is in your blood. And apparently it’s in ours. As twins born in the month of Gemini, we’re a rare breed even in this academy of supernatural a-holes.

Changelings were outlawed hundreds of years ago but I guess our birth parents didn’t get the memo. Which means we’re totally unprepared for the ruthless world of Fae.

Air. Fire. Water. Earth.

No one has ever harnessed all four of them, until we arrived. And it hasn’t made us any friends so far.

As the rarest Elementals ever known, we’re already a threat to the four celestial heirs; the popular, vindictive bullies who happen to be some of the hottest guys we’ve ever seen. It doesn’t help that they’re the most dangerous beasts in the Academy. And probably on earth too.

Our fates are intertwined, but they want us gone. They’ve only got until the lunar eclipse to force us out and they’ll stop at nothing to succeed.

We never knew we had a birthright to live up to but now that we do, we intend to claim our throne.

We can’t expect any help from the faculty when it comes to defending ourselves. So if the dragon shifters want some target practice, the werewolves want someone to hunt or the vampires fancy a snack then we have to be ready. But we’ve been looking after each other for a long time and fighting back is in our blood.

Today’s horoscope: totally screwed.

Ok. I am now obsessed!

Darcy and Tory grew up in the mortal world and they find they are something more. Fae. But not only fae. The lost Vega Heirs, twins, next in line for the throne. But they have competition in the shape of 4 guys, the Celestial Heirs, and they are not happy the girls are back!

I loved Tory, she’s outspoken and wont take anything from anyone although she gets trouble handed to her on the daily. I especially loved her inner monologue…….’There was no way in hell Iโ€™d be ending up in his bed tonight. I was at least sixty-seven percent certain of that.’

Darcy has more of a played down personality than Tory. She doesn’t jump into things and tries to placate situations. I really loved her vulnerable nature.

Now Orion……I really hope there is teacher/student romance here!

There were quite a few spelling errors but that didn’t take my enjoyment away and I will be reading the next book!ย 

It was dark, it was bully and it was delish.

      1. Most of the longer ones end up that way eventually.. but for the first five to be great must be no easy task. I’ve already started trying to find where I can fit the first one in. ๐Ÿ˜†
        Thank you!
