Summary

Do I want to spend my summer with my vicious classmates at Bloodstone University - better known as Villain Academy? No, thank you. But I've got to find a way to tackle my enemies before they try to destroy me again, and the trail to potential answers starts there.

I've had it with taking the high road, though. Come at me, and you'd better believe I'll hit you back just as hard. Maybe that'll mean I have to tap into my dark magic instincts more than I'd ever have planned to, but I'm not letting one more person I care about get hurt.

That also means I've got to steer clear of the one guy I completely trust, or I might ruin his life, too. With two of the other scions vying for my attention and the last shifting his campaign against me in an unexpected way, I've got my hands full as it is.

I can't say whether I'll survive everything this summer has in store. All I know for sure is it's going to be a hot one.

Sinister Wizardry is the third book in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no one’s will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance where there'll be no choosing required.

A wizard of a listen for your heart

Wow this audio story will have you wondering till the end . Book 3 continues where book 2 ended . With lots of twists and a turns . Eva wrote a very strong story . Eva is a wizard with grabbing your attention and having you listen hook line and sinker. Eva wrote a story that will remind you of the university that Harry Potter went to . Some people are your friends but there is some that will try to skin you alive .
The Bloodstone university is on summer break . Rory needs to find out where that key that her professor gave her belongs to . She also meets one of her mothers best friend, a black suit , The police of the mags . Rory bonds with 3 of her scions , yes one of them is not Malcom. Rory also has an idea of how to protect the normal people from the dark Mags , build a building that will be just for them. Her idea comes when the school has a contest where each Mag has to influence a normal person. The idea for a building is going great till the other Mags but doubt in the normal people’s head . That is where Connor comes in . Also Rory finds out something about Jude that might destroy his life . And Connor shows Rory a secret that you never saw coming There is a lot going on because everyone wants to bring the most powerful Mag down. I’m just tell bits and pieces of the story

Wow what can I say Stephen Dexter and Meg Sylvan performance was great. The way both performed the characters were great

Completely on form!

Book 3 of a longer series is usually a tipping point for me: I'll either abandon, or in this case fall head over heels and NEED the whole of the rest of the series right freaking now!

True to form, Rory HATES the premise of the summer project, but taking her own slant on it seems to grow up, step above the petty crap her classmates are dealing to her and really step into her own power (literal and metaphorical). I love how each of the guys are beginning to come around separately, that she has a healthy amount of trust around Imogen without simply throwing a friendship away the way a more imature heroine might.

I also did NOT see that cliffhanger coming! (Yep, there is one - if you're a non-cliffhanger person then I suggest getting book 4 at the same time)

Amazing

Eva Chase does it again with this brilliantly written story. The tension between Rory and the boys is so addicting. The story is full of more twists and turns. Whilst I have read all of the previous books in this series so far and thoroughly enjoyed them, listening to them is magical and really brings this story to life. I cannot wait to listen to the next book after such a cliff hanging ending.

Love this series

So Rory is getting better at figuring out this magic stuff and she is on track to figuring out exactly who is after her. Some of the guys are turning the corner and I find myself actually cheering for them. I love the mystery in this series. Eva continues to keep us guessing. This one ends with a cliffhanger so you will want to pick up the next book right away.

More twists and turns

Narration is as great as ever as we follow the group in their daily struggles at the academy and home.

I love how things are hotting up between the group and how they are becoming more aware of the sinister world around them.

I look forward to the rest of the series here on Audible.

The academy has never been more cutthroat

I love this story about Rory, Declan, Connor, Jude and Malcolm and the summer semester at the academy. The way the guys attempt to get into Rory's good graces and the mystery that is unraveling around the Barrons is amazing and spellbinding.

Extremely good

I found this book to be an extremely good listen. It has a great combination of suspense, romance, drama and emotion. I can’t wait to see what the next semester holds.
The narrators both do a superb job of voicing the characters.

Great Narrators, love the plot

Sinister Wizardry definitely amps up the pace of this series. Where Rory was definitely extremely biased against the fearmancers, you can see how she lets go of the extreme beliefs that fearmancers are all bad and joymancers all good. Not only that evolution is one that I enjoy, I also love the other scions standing up for her when they notice how their ways were wrong, building the relationship between Rory and them in the process. This series grows on me with every book and the narrators definitely bring the characters to life, conveying the emotions.

Such a good series!

Seriously, I've been listening to all of these books this week and am so wrapped up in Rory's world. The guys are ALL staring to come along and finally realizing that maybe changing Rory isn't what's needed (maybe it's their system), the plot to unseat or build distrust toward Rory as the Bloodstone Scion is further unraveling, and the ending made me so sad that I started crying in public today (thanks, Miss Chase!)

I haven't mentioned the narration in my previous reviews, but Meg Sylvan and Stephen Dexter have knocked this performance out of the park. Meg is so good as Rory (I'm loving her voice) and Stephen's voice is brash and sexy when it needs to be. So good!
