Summary

In a month, I've gone from magicless to one of the most powerful dark mages in the world. You'd think that would make my life easier. 

But all that power is only potential until I learn how to wield it, and my enemies have a huge head start. While I'm picking up every skill I can, adversaries both within Villain Academy and beyond it are working to knock me down. 

My fellow scions? I can count at least a couple of them among those enemies. The others...let's just say the lines between light and dark have gotten a lot more blurred. 

Nothing's safe here - not my mind, my heart, my magic, or the few people who're proving themselves my allies. When the danger turns deadly, will I be able to save all of them and myself?

Rory’s battle to survive Villain Academy has only just begun. Vicious treachery, unexpected allies, thrilling passion, and wrenching heartbreak await in Vile Sorcery....

*Vile Sorcery is the second 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 magic audio story

Wow Wow book 2 is just as hear wrapping as book 1. What can I say. The words are not enough to do it justice. Eva Chase wrote a story that will wrap you into the story . Eva characters are strong. The heroine, Rory , is strong , her resolve is unshakable, no matter what Malcom and his other Scions ( who Rory ) is suppose to be part off throws at her , Rory rises above the attacks , stands her ground, she does fight back but very mild . The four scions but mostly Malcom wants to Rory to bow down to them . Rory does have a mild connection to 2 of them . Rory professor gets sick once he wants to tell her something who wants to do her harm
Grab it and find out who .
Stephen Dexter and Meg Sylvan are a great team . Stephen doing different tones for all the male characters were great . Even 2 or 3 voices in the same scene were great . Meg doing Rory , Debrah and all the females were spot on

Interesting Series

I'm so glad Rory is starting to question things and dig deeper into her past. Deborah's insistence that Rory shouldn't trust fearmancers is making her seem suspicious.

I know this is a slow burn RH but it's very slow. I'm having a hard time seeing how they'll all come together but hopefully it'll become more clear as the series progresses. Malcolm especially I can't see winning Rory over (or me lol)

new start

rory characters grew up from book 1 to a stronger person in book 2. the more the scions try to make rory's life hard the more she fights back.I love how strong and determined Rory is despite all the cruel things are happened to her in her life.I loved book 2 and can't wait for more. eva wrote a great cast of characters in this series and meg and stephen did a great job also. I can't wait to see what happens next

secrets, cruel magic and a strong female lead

Great second book in this magical pnr series, I'm really enjoying it. The two narrators on the audio were very good and easy to listen to.

The plot thickens....... although we learnt a few things especially in that twist at the end, there are still secrets galore and a sinister plan to bring Rory to heel.  I love how strong and determined Rory is, despite all the cruel obstacles being thrown at her.  She has morals that don't align with fearmancer protocol, she's kind and caring but is learning fast. I'm happy to see a few more layers to the scions being revealed, especially Declan and Jude. There wasn't too much from Connor, but he's finally growing a pair! Malcolm was still a big a-hole. I really don't like him at the moment, he's stubborn, mean and blinkered.  I just hope he shows some redeemable qualities in the next book. There wasn't very much in the way of romance but bonds are slowly forming and I'm looking forward to what comes next, even if I have no idea how things are going to pan out!

Great sequel! 4.5 stars!

Definitely a great sequel. If the first book was on the slower side, in this one a lot happens. I loved to see the developments with Jude and Declan, and Rory grows a lot as a character. Overall I loved the book!
The narrators were awesome, just like in the first book. Can't wait to start the next one :D

Can’t wait for more

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review.

Omg I am so enjoying this series, it’s a slow burn so it makes it much better to watch the characters growing especially when you get little snippets of the guys POV’s. Rory is such a strong fiery character yet relatable. The world building just keeps getting better and better and the plot is very twisted and intriguing. I can’t wait for more!

Captivating

Just as captivating as book 1.
Eva Chase has a wonderful way of describing the world of Rory's unravelling life.

Sometimes pain needs felt to open your eyes; Jude and Connor have seen it, will Malcom come around?

Royals of Villain Academy Book 2

I enjoyed the first book, Cruel Magic, but this book is even better. Rory’s fellow scions continue to be a problem, although the line between hate and love seem to be blurring for a few of them. Rory continues to uphold her values and principles and it is not popular with the Fearmancers.

Narration is excellent and brings the story to life.

This is an adult series and there are some steamy scenes. The author did a great job creating an interesting world with well developed characters. I’m still not too fond of any of the Scions but hopefully they will develop some redeeming qualities.

The story sucked me in and it was impossible to put it down! I finished the book in record time and can’t hardly wait for book 3! This series is very entertaining and I’m looking forward to finding out what will happen next.

Loving this world so much already ❤️

I thought book 2 was a great follow-up to book 1, had me more invested in these characters and want to shake them all with their decisions and can't wait for them to be a unit instead of all the pushing and pulling and being on opposite sides. I loved seeing some walls come down, I loved the angst and heartbreak between some, and am ready for Malcolm to get the stick out of his butt and realize what he wants to happen shouldn't happen and he needs to listen to his fellow scions. I enjoyed seeing Connar finally do something admirable and am excited to see what happens with him and Rory in the next book. I hope Jude can snap out of it, I mean he is trying to understand, but its not clicking yet. and I am worried about what might happen to Declan. The ramifications will probably bite them later. I was heartbroken but knew it was gonna happen eventually with one character and sad that Rory keeps losing friends left and right. I loved getting more insight into the powers and how they can be used against each other/see how to combat some of them. I loved the little Hogwarts-esque team/league challenge. I also thought the moments with Rory and Shadow was adorable. Overall 5/5 for the story in book 2 of 8 of this series ❤️

In terms of narration I thought there was improvement, between and 4 and 4.5 stars for me. I thought the emotion that Meg provided was gut wrenching, especially with the event at the end of the book. I think the portrayal of Debra is helping make me suspicious of her and her narration of the mean girls was amazing. I felt the sorrow with Imogen and the feeb I am blanking on (totally not playing into the Villains storyline/relationship I promise haha). Great job, Meg! Stephen did a good job, I thought he was better at not being screechy/whiny with Rory's narration. He definitely did a great job with Malcolm and Connar's scenes. I am interested to get a POV from Jude after the blow-up with Rory, feel how lost he is.

Already downloaded book 3, losing this story so much already! I am glad this series is complete because I would be devastated to not know what would come next 😍

I love this series !!!!!!!!!!

In book 2 Rory has just learned that she is one of the most powerful mages in the world. Now she has to learn how to use those powers. The Scions still give her trouble along with the "mean girls" but my girl Rory is keeping up.
Her relationships with Jude and Declan start to heat up in the book. Connor has a lot to make up for and Malcom is still a jerk to her. I love her relationship with Shelby and I can't wait to see what will happen next.
There are several plots in this book. The overall plot is Rory trying to reconcile her Fearmancer abilities with her Joymancer nature. They we have the mystery of what is happening with her mentor. Also the constant conflict with the Barrons and now her grandparents. Rory has a very busy and complicated life.
Stephen and Meg do an amazing job of narrating and bringing the characters to life. I can't wait for more!!! #AudioBx review

Awesome Job!!!

Vile Sorcery by Eva Chase and narrated by Meg Sylvan and Stephan Dexter, the second book in a multiple book series.
Return Rory Bloodstone, She made it through the trial to prove her magic, now she just needs to survive her classmates. I love how she tries so hard to maintain her morals while she is being told that everything she grew up learning is wrong, but she is surviving with help from her mentor, her mouse, and her access to the library.
I highly recommend this book but you really need to listen to them in the order that the author intended, or you will be completely lost. Follow Rory and her adventures, and the other scions to see what happens next.
