Zodiac Academy 8: Sorrow and Starlight
About this deal
Our sorrow is spun like a web, trapping us tight, and I fear our enemies will soon come to feast upon our souls.
How. Could They. Do That! Sorrow and Starlight is a beast of a book, the biggest the Twisted Sisters have written to date and those were the words I screamed over and over again along with WHY?! I felt so much frustration and rage whilst reading, Seth and Caleb ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I thoroughly enjoyed the introduction of new povs from characters and getting a chance to peak inside their heads, although there was one that I could have done without. I also enjoyed the interactions between more of the characters, the ex-councillors being some of my favourites except I have to say I HATE Seth's mom, I really do not like her!
More scenes with out favourite Ruthless Boys were added, providing great hilarity from Leon that had me crying with laughter at his insane, random mind. Carson is obviously living his best life, Dante is perfect as per usual. So much of the funny scenes were down to Leon or Seth or both. Washer is also still managing to hang on and he has a new job within the army that just had me cringing. If you are also a fantasy romance series lover then this series is for you, if you already read the other book of this series then it’s the time to read the last one if not then you can read it one by one and then jump on this one. Maybe it’s because I love them and this is wishful thinking but I refuse to believe this is some Ned Stark level stuff.
He always has trouble seeing shadows and obviously there are a lot of shadows in the remaining portion of the book. Honestly you could skip 40 chapters of this book and still understand the story. Some great moments but it took commitment to get through. The ending was good- last 10 chapters. That was the saving grace for me - and yes I will start the next one. The Imperial Star had supposedly fallen from the sky thousands of years ago, found by the first queen to ever sit on the throne of Solaria after she’d seen the blazing arc it had made through the sky as it fell. Once she had it, she started receiving visions in the night, whispers as if from the star itself that told her the ways of dark magic.”I used to love the Geraldine chapters - now I find them pretty cringe. I think it was too heavy on fluff and book filler. I felt sorry for the narrators. There were also multiple other gifts that had been added to it over the centuries and power that weren’t specifically cited.
