Zodiac Academy: The Awakening: An Academy Bully Romance Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
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.

Tory and Darcy are heirs to a the throne of Solaria, which they don't even want. Yet, Darius, Caleb, Max and Seth will do absolutely ANYTHING to get them out of Zodiac Academy in order to keep the throne to themselves.
Those boys are the worst of their kind. I just hate them so much. I really hope Tory and Darcy will get their revenge because those guys can't ever win. The scene at the end, when they deliberately let Tory drown in the pool,was insane, they wouldn't even feel one ounce of remorse. They're so evil.
Cannot wait to read ZA2 to see how the girls will deal with them and what they went through. Praying for a good ol' revenge though.
My first book by this two authors and I fell in love ... I fell in love with Tory and Darius, I fell in love with the story.. I laugh.. a lot .. I cringe.. a lot too ..
It’s not a nice love story where everything is pink .. it’s hard and a real BULLY story .. but it’s amazing. The story is dark and addicting, the characters endearing and so funny, the romance is ... slow.. but we are going to wait...
I loved it !

Note that there is a novella before this book. However, I recommend reading it after book 3 if you want to go completely blind and discover parts of the story at the same time as our heroines.
So, what is the story about? Darcy and Tory are twins that have lived all their lives in the mortal world from foster home to foster home. One night, Professor Orion appears in their tiny apartment and they discover that:
1. They are Fae that belong to Solaria, the Fae world.
2. They are princesses, heirs of the throne.
3. They possess magic
As they are Royals, their inheritance is massive but they need to graduate from Zodiac Academy in order to get access to it. However, the 4 Celestial Houses are currently ruling Solaria since the twins’ parents died and their Heirs are also studying in Zodiac. As they want to rule in the future they will make the twins’ life hell so they drop out and they go back to the mortal world. This is why the book is considered a bully romance and you will want to punch some people’s faces.
The book is written from the twins POV. I love their characters, they are so different but they are strong together and they complement each other. My favourite is Darcy as I can relate more to her personality. They are the strength of this book, seeing their bond and how they overcome all the obstacles that they throw on their way.
The world-building is amazing and, as you can imagine by the name, it is heavily influenced by Astrology. Fae have Elemental Powers linked to their Zodiac: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. The Academy is split in 4 Houses linked to each power and each Heir is the Head of one House.
Also Fae have Order forms, so you can find Vampires, Werewolves, Sirens, Dragons and multiple more.
The romance is very slow-burn and you won’t even know who the love interests are as there are a few options for each of the girls. My favourites hands down are Darcy and Professor Orion, I guess I am a sucker for forbidden romance! They give me all the feelings!
This was my first book from Caroline and Susanne. I love their writing style and how they really spend time developing the characters so you really care about them. I highly recommend you to check their series Ruthless Boys and Darkmore Penitentiary once you finish with Zodiac as they are based in the same world and there is some character crossover. Zodiac is NOT a Reverse Harem, however the other two series are.
This was my first bully romance, and its safe to say my last. The first half of this book was just blood rape, abuse, and extreme bulling. Consent was nonexistent! Then two of the worst bullies are meant to be love interests. I’m sorry but no. There is no redeeming them in any way that would make a relationship plausible.
Now the book wasn’t all bad. I loved the sisters and their bond. The world was interesting and the magic system fresh and exciting. That being said it wasn’t enough to overlook the abuse and the unhealthy forming relationship. These girls are victims.
Zodiac Awakening is a great world building book, with kick ass heroines and a great variety of man candy to choose from.
Note: not RH like their other series but go for it even so, especially if you enjoy their other RH series.
I came across these Authors by a complete random fluke as I was looking at potential new reads from different Facebook groups and loved the idea and concept of this book. Storey story is well told and difficult to put down after the first few chapters. I love most Academy Books but not always the bullying ones as they can be a bit much and really which self-respecting heroine falls in love with someone who has been evil to her. To be fair the bullying in this one actually works and isnt OTT.
I don’t think this is a RH which is good as makes it stand above a lot of the other Academy books out there. For something a little different this book is well worth a read and within a few chapters you will be hooked as the storey is really good, well defined characters and brilliant moments through out the book that drag you in deeper leaving you definitely wanting book 2, there is also a prequel that I have just found which I am off to read ..
