Summary

When I arrived at Roseborne College searching for my foster brother, I had no idea what I was in for. In the past few weeks, I've endured torments both physical and emotional. I've looked death in the face. And I've made an unnerving discovery that's left me scrambling to pick up the pieces of the quest I started out on.

But the supernatural beings who run this school haven't conquered me yet. I'll turn the tables on them with my newfound knowledge - and maybe with the help of three temptingly screwed-up guys I never expected to count on.

At least, that's the plan. Everyone in this place is keeping secrets: Me, the guys I might be falling for, and my brother. Secrets big enough to bring us together...or to tear us completely apart. How will I find the strength to continue the fight if it turns out I can't trust anyone - not even myself?

Academy of the Forsaken is the second book in a gothic paranormal trilogy with shades of Beauty and the Beast. If you love snarky heroines, damaged heroes, dark secrets galore, and reverse harem romance with no choosing required, look no further! Just beware: Once you enter Roseborne College, there may be no coming back....

Incredible plot

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. I just love how with these books, the further you go a little more of the puzzle of this plot is revealed at just the right moment! At no point did I find myself feeling this book lacked anywhere, we find more parts of each of the back stories out which in themselves are pretty chilling! It’s really interesting to watch these characters grow and develop an the relationship between them blossom. You also see a lot more of her step brother Cade and the struggles and relationship between Trix and him. I haven’t even gone into the main plot of the book which is exceptional including yet another cliffhanger ending!!

Would you be able to keep going?

Narration is very well done. A trilogy with a powerful lesson within. Maybe a series of books in the future that should be studied at school. A brilliant concept.

You will not forget this story. You’ll love it

Book 2 in the series. This story is different than Evas usually stories. This one is a goth , dark paranormal. This book 2 continents where book 1 left off . The characters are well developed. The scenes are well written and very detailed. Trix is the heroine. Trix goes back to the Academy trying to figure out what the rose bush does with all that energy that it gives to the professors. She also tells her guys that this time she didn’t forget what happened and what her plans are. There is one glitch, she wants to help her foster brother, but he plays the on Trix feeling. Trix slowly takes steps to brake the hold the teachers have. Her men help her out . The attraction between them is hot. Can’t believe the ending The performance of Lidia Dornet, Jason Clarke was strong, smooth and they brought the story to life

The cycle is discovered but can they break it?

Never have any problem with one of these two narrators, this was no exception. They fit well together too. After the events of book 1, this book starts with a new cycle, although there seem to be little differences compaired to the previous cycle so now it’s a matter of searching what makes it different. Searching for what Trix and her boys can do or use to break that cycle. Because leaving her brother is not an option! And by now, it’s about rescuing all the students because there is something way off about Roseborne College. I loved this installment because the first book I was constantly questioning what was going on there but also a lot about the How? Really intriguing storyline. Fascinating College that no-one in their right mind would even come near if they knew what was going on. I’m starting to learn that some parts of RH isn’t really my thing, I don’t mind the why choose mentality and such but the steamy parts are either good or too steamy and crowded for me due to the RH. But still, even with my dislike: this author has made it on my “checking everything this author writes” list because the stories are just way too good to not try her books. Because each and every single one of the books of hers I have read/listened to, I listened to without any problems, there are no plotholes, great thinking, great details, like with this series, even the classes have their meaning. So in short: for me not liking all aspects of this genre, I sure got hooked from start to finish! I actually scribbled some keywords for this book, so I’ll know later, while reviewing, which aspects belong here and which are from book 1 or 3. And then I immediately started book 3! So needless to say at this point but I absolutely loved this storyline

Academy of the Forsaken

As the story continues for Trix and the guys, things get interesting. Trix had started her journey set to just find Cade. Instead she found out everyone is stuck at that horrid school. Now she is determined to help them all. Love this series so far. Can’t wait for the last book! If you like Beauty and the Beast retellings then you will probably enjoy this series. The narration was amazing!

Even Better than the First Book!

This is the second book in the Cursed Studies Series. This book starts very similar to the first one, except Trix remembers more then she should. The story flows a bit faster than before and we learn so much of what is behind this unusual school. The story sucked me in from the beginning to conclusion. Narration was excellent and brought the story to life. Our heroine is one tough girl. Even though she remembers the terrible things going on in this college, she goes back to figure out how to stop the teachers from controlling the students. She learns a lot, although I’m not too sure about her “brother”. I believe there is more to him being there than meets the eye... I love how the story has picked up speed and the plot is getting thicker. We have seen glimpses of the past and there is a lot more we need to understand to put all the pieces together. The story wraps up with a major cliffhanger and I’m looking forward to finding out what lays behind this cruel school on book three.

Even Darker!!!

Academy of the Forsaken by Eva Chase and narrated by Lidia Dornet and Jason Clarke is the second book in the Cursed Studies series. I found this book to be even darker and more twisted and I loved it. Trix, Jensen, Rio and Elias have their work cut out for them with this installment. Walk into the adventure in one crazy college. Would I listen to this book again? yes in the daylight Would I recommend this book to others? yes, with disclaimers This is an RH, so I would only recommend it to those over 18.

Academy of the Forsaken

This book picks up right where the first book left off. Trix is back and determined to free the students at Roseborne. As her relationship with Ryo, Elias and Jenson develops, she's forced to face some hard truths. I love this series so far, it's a fastpaced, well-written and compelling plot and I can't wait to find out how everything unravels in the final book
