We left Tory Vega, Darcy Vega and the Heirs after they went to battle with Lionel Acrux. After everything that happened, none of them can go back to Zodiac Academy. Luckily Geraldine’s dad and other anti-Lionel Fae have set up a safe bunker far away from the palace.

To make things more complicated, Darius made a promise to the stars…that no one knows about. He’s ready to face the consequences, yet everyone he knows would try to stop him.

In Zodiac Academy 4: Shadow Princess, we left both Darcy and Tory on the worst night of their lives. Darcy and Orion made a serious mistake, one that could hurt every Fae in Solaria. While Tory ruined her personal life, possibly ending any hope of being with Darius Acrux.

But surprisingly, they find three unexpected allies: Seth Capella, Caleb Altair and Max Rigel, who have stopped their asshole ways and start to help the Vega twins.
