Summary

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.

I’m Gemini… No wait WE are gemini or WE ARE TWINS

So im just 7 chapters in and I’m considering to put it down.
1. It’s not one main character but 2, twins none the less.
2. The “sexual tension” is the girls being assaulted and bullied by the higher ups.
And 3. It’s the typical “ your from another world and not only that but you are royals”
If it was less attention to how the boys look and actually think that “ hmm, this is assault. Maybe not have that in here and calling it “sexual tension” is the way to go.”
It has potential with the magic and fantasy era, but it misses when it tries to be steamy.
Another thing that bothers me is the miss leading intro to the book. Had it said we are Gemini and we are fae, it would have been more true then “ I am Gemini and I am fae.”
I picked it up on a recommendation from tiktok expecting a bad ass leading lady who tries to build her powers and gets beef with the bad boy of the school who actually falls for her. But was thrown in some mello drama of twin sisters where one is cute and quiet while the other is a total “I don’t care- bitch” and ohh shit they are long lost princesses who went missing years ago.

Meh..

I found the environment and magic system quite interesting and would love to explore in the future. I came into this book with the expectation for it to be steamy, but even still, all I got was a story about girls who talked about being strong, with the story attempting to keep sexual tension as if it was OK, completely glossing over the fact that they were assaulted and bullied. I love enemies to lovers / rival dynamics any day, but this just felt like the twins were dumb, for some reason always focusing on the guys looks, even when they were in situations no real horny person would ever be horny about. Certain scenes it did work, but the horniness was too much, and I've read much spicer stories. There honestly wasn't much pay off for the sexual tension to work and the girls were just punching bags throughout the whole story, where there was constant repetition of the same things about "not letting them get the satisfaction" or "being stronger than they think" with no actions to back it up. I find this to be quite a shame, as I genuinely enjoyed following the characters when they weren't unnecessarily ogling each other. The twist at the end kept me hooked and I think it was well executed especially with Darcy, however I don't knoew if I'll continue reading as the constant pushing the girls around with not much proper development on their side has put me off. If they learned any proper magic at all or if what they did learn had actual impact, I'd probably overlook the poorly executed sexual tension. I was waiting for one of the to finally snap, and let the heirs show they need to take them more seriously, show SOME potential. However no such thing happened and I felt quite disappointed.

fantastic

This audiobook is absolutely fantastic and I enjoyed listening to it. The story is brilliant, the characters are great and the pace is great.

Tory and Darcy are both brilliant main characters and are both relatable. They get thrown into this new world with no preparation, yet they cope with it well, even with the bullying going on. I liked the differences and individuality between them even though they are twins. It's a hard, ruthless world they have to navigate.

The 4 heirs were interesting characters. They go to lengths to make Tory and Darcy uncomfortable and try to scare them. I can kind off see things from their point of view given their upbringing, but they go to the extreme.

Orion was another interesting character. Everything throughout the book is pointing towards him being a bad guy, but then certain events contradict the idea. I'm looking forward to learning more about him.

All the different Orders and characters came in different shapes and sizes which was brilliant to read. I liked the fact that they were essentially, Human, but they could change into these characters and they each topped up their magic in different ways. Each one was different and had their quirks. They were described great and I found it very imaginative.

Overall, this book is absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to read the next. I would completely recommend it. It's simply brilliant.

This is not ‘hot bullying’

This is not my first bully romance by any means, however the bullying in this gets progressively worse and irritating. In other bully romances, yes the guy is horrible and cruel but they show moments of kindness, there’s some balance. This story had very few such moments.... The twins are the victims yet you can’t help but dislike them too. I’m not looking for a Mary Sue but dang can’t they learn more? The authors barely talked about them practicing at all! We don’t have to be at the point where we can kick the celestial heir’s bums but not even their minions? Seriously? And apparently it’s like that until the 5th book, Not sure if I can hang on long enough even though I love the story’s premise and astrology.

No backbone, no romance, don't waste your time

I can honestly say this is one of the worst books I have ever wasted my time on. Not only was there absolutely zero romance, like none at all… The bullying got to a point where it was annoying. Tori and Darcy did not stick up for themselves not even once in the book. They had absolutely zero back bone. And they let everybody run all over them. So you got no answers by the end of the book, no romance, no sticking up for themselves. The whole book is a waste of time

storyline is promising but...

the storyline is promising but the first book truthfully doesn't move the storyline past weak women who don't know anything nor do they learn anything. the last chapter was great, however the rest of the book was a repetition over and over.

Eh

I really wanted to love this, with girls that have been through so much they are easily tricked whiny. There is no thread of strength. I had to see if this was written by a man. Nope.. it made me sad that the writers felt the need to make strong women so weak especially when it comes to sex. The story could be so amazing.

Aurora Academy series was sooooooo much better.

I remember listening to the audio sample and decided not to purchase it. Then I came across the Aurora Academy series and loved it. But what I didn’t know was both were part of the same story line. So after being so happy with Aurora Academy I decided to purchase Zodiac Academy. How disappointing! There were several parts of the book that made zero sense. I skipped at least 4 chapters just to get to the good stuff. I didn’t miss anything because of the constant drawn out repeat of what they went through. I’m truly hoping that book 2 isn’t as overly dramatic and makes more sense like the Aurora Academy one. I do really like the story line.

REALLY wish the other books were here.

Finally, a book that satisfied the hole HP left in my heart with also being a self indulgent bully romance. When can we expect the next 6 to be narrated here?

No girl power!

The heroines we're fairly worthless. They were as clueless about magic at the end of the book as they were at the beginning. Perhaps if the writer wasn't so busy planning the next possible rape or torture they could have squeezed some time in for the heroines to actually learn some magic. Strong start but you keep waiting for a climax that never happens.
