Review: Zodiac Academy 8: Sorrow and Starlight by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

Finally, seven months after reading Zodiac Academy 7: Heartless Sky, we’ve finished Zodiac Academy 8: Sorrow and Starlight. The book starts right where the previous left us off, at the end of a huge battle between Lionel Acrux’s loyalists and the resistance.

Everything has changed for the Vega twins. With Darcy Vega cursed by Lavinia, Darcy has no choice but to leave the resistance, since she’s a danger to everyone she loves. Tory Vega is trying to recover from the worst day of her life, while also trying to rebuild her troops.

Review: Zodiac Academy: The Awakening As Told by the Boys by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

After finishing Zodiac Academy 7:Heartless Sky, we were desperate to get back to Solaria and our favorite characters. We decided to pick up Zodiac Academy: The Awakening As Told by the Boys, where the Celestial Heirs and Lance Orion get to tell their side of Zodiac Academy: The Awakening.

Review: Zodiac Academy 7: Heartless Sky by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti

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.

But everything has changed now and there’s no going back to normal for anyone, especially the Heirs, who Lionel has stripped of their titles for standing against him. 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.

Nobody is safe in Solaria and with a civil war brewing and all Fae most pick a side. Stand with the Vegas or let Lionel and is Nymph army continue the totalitarian rule.

Binge-Worthy YA Books

In need of a YA series to binge? We have some awesome recommendations for series to read through immediately. Whether you want something cute and fluffy for summer, or a dark thriller for autumn, we have something for everyone.

1. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Pretty Little Liars became a cult classic when the TV show released in 2010. But, we think the books are much better. Three years after Alison DeLaurentis disappears, former friends Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily start receiving mysterious text messages from someone named A. Pretty Little Liars is a perfect binge series because there are 16 books and two companion novels. Just get ready, the YA series is full of thrills and is even darker than the show.
