All stars must fall.
Bloody, lost, broken. We live to fight another day. But with so much stolen from us, can the fates ever twist in our favour again?
My sister and I have been torn apart by shadows and despair, and now we each stand alone.
Our sorrow is spun like a web, trapping us tight, and I fear our enemies will soon come to feast upon our souls.
But if I have my way, the merciless sky will have dealt us its final fortune. It’s time for us to take back the power that’s been ripped from our grasp and turn the tide of this war.
All stars must fall, and all Phoenixes must rise.
Long live the Savage Queens.
This will now be book 8 of 9 in the series.
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.

GENRE: Dark Fantasy Romance
AUTHOR: Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti
TROPE: Paranormal, Reverse Harem
TYPE: Series (Zodiac Academy Book 8)
POV: Multiple POV
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5
Zodiac Academy 8 is a thick one (1244 Kindle Pages)! While I enjoyed reading the book, there are a LOT of characters' points of view (more than 10), not to mention some of the chapters are incredibly long! One chapter alone was almost an hour and a half long, according to my kindle reading time. Because of this, it has taken me more time to get through the book.
It is best to read Sorrow and Starlight without spoilers, but I will say it was a journey! Some parts of the storyline were predictable, while others were in true "Twisted Sisters" style, and I did not see them coming. I enjoyed the storyline and will continue to Zodiac Academy 9 when the final installment comes out. I am giving a rating of 4 / 5 Stars.
I feel like this was really setting the stage for the finale in the next book. We also finally got some good scenes between a certain two that I’ve been waiting for 🥰🥰
I’m still unsure on how the ending of this book will play out into the next. (The cliffhanger isn’t sad imo) I didn’t see it coming at all and was completely thrown off. I swear I never know what they are going to do 🙄
Oh and lastly the spice hit ✌️
I’ll be here patiently waiting for the next book 😶🌫️
But I'm still waiting impatiently for book 9!

With how ZA7 was left, I was expecting to have my heart ripped out further but there were moments of joy that keep you going and make it all worth it. I cried and laughed throughout.
*Potential spoilers below* - I will try my best not to spoil anything though.
There are so many new POV's in this book (I believe I counted 19 in total) and whilst some of them I wasn't completely into, I do think it helped the flow of the story as you could see what was happening with everyone and how it would all come together. I also really loved that you could see what was happening with the rebels and how they were trying to help.
There were moments that had me screaming in frustration (Seth and Caleb I am looking at you!) but it just helps you keep reading on as you want to know that it all works out.
I could not work out what the prophecy was at all but now that I've read this book, it's so clear. But, of course, there is now a new prophecy I cannot work out!
I also love the little nods and references to Darkmore Penitentiary and that series - they actually made me scream a little as I realised little things that I remembered from that series were coming into this series.
This cliffhanger was honestly not as bad as I was expecting. On a scale of ZA1 to ZA7, I would definitely say it's more of a ZA3 or maybe a ZA6 rather than a ZA4 or ZA7 (which in my opinion were the worst ones!)
I get that this book will not be for everyone as everyone had different ideas of what they wanted to happen and how they wanted things to go but honestly, I really really enjoyed this book and loved the direction it took.
I can understand how there was no way they would have been able to cut this down to make it the final book so the decision to split it, whilst a bit disappointing that we still have to wait for the ending to see how it all works out, is the best decision for the series as it means we get the full story that Caroline and Susanne imagine and want to tell us without having to lose anything.
I have waited 9months for book 8, for a conclusion. When it was announced this wouldn't be the last book, I was cool as it meant more time in this world.
That was until I read book 8!
It just felt like 70% of it was filler and not necessary at all.
There may be some spoilers from this point on. So don't continue if you haven't read it.
POVs for some characters were pointless. Like Justin (might have the name wrong as I switched off) just floating in the clouds for a whole chapter - why???
Chapters of Seth and Caleb getting freaky but still not admitting their feelings. I like a good sex scene but it felt overloaded.
Pointless mini battles like the library and the weird s*x not s*x scene with the 3 witches and Tory. That was just- well I cant describe it but I Skipped those pages.
The thing that let me down the most though was Darius returning. Like they've spent the whole book mourning him and when he turns up- nothing. I cant understand that and it deflated me. I was so waiting for the big reunion and all the happy feels that would come with it, for it to be nothing.
Adding new villains. At this point it's not needed. They still haven't killed the villains that have been tormenting them the whole series. With Cylde I think I can already see how that story is going to go, and if I'm right I think its going to ruin all the greatness of this series.
So as much as I love this world and all of the other books the sisters have wrote, this book just didn't hit like I expected. It most definitely could have been the last if all the unnecessary filler was cut out.
Will I read book 9 - of course, but am I as excited about it as I was the others - no.
The characters continue to grow and evolve in sometimes completely unexpected ways. Our favourite slippery salmon gets adventurous, our favourite puppy dreams about the wonders of a moon mate, Rosalie Oscura cameos as the badass she is, the Herald of Truth works his magic in the press, countless faebook posts - what’s not to love! Ok I’m making this sound like way too happy of a book so I feel I should prep you and say it is not and has its share of heartache and horror and you def need to keep the box of baileys and bottle of tequila to hand to drown your sorrows in between basking in the starlight.
The unfolding of the previous prophecies was great to watch happen over the process of the book and the realisations of what different parts could possibly have meant while still keeping the suspense until the truth is revealed. The cliffhanger is thankfully nowhere even close to being as horrifying as HS’ and overall ends on a fairly positive note.
I have but one disappointment at the end which I hope shall be fixed in book 9 (cannot come soon enough) which I won’t give spoilers but I think when you’re finished you’ll know what I mean.
This series has me in a chokehold and I’m 100% here for it. May the stars be ever in your favour ✌️
This series is a complete rollercoaster ride with your emotions and it's a ride I don't want to end. I am loving how fearless Tory is and that she isn't some perfect pure princess who weeps all the time and even though she is broken she still keeps fighting.
Darcy is definitely Torys light to her dark and this book even though takes them on different paths in the end proves there's no greater bond than sisters.
I am loving everybody stories not just the Vega twins, I am really rooting for Seth and cal to finally confess how they really feel and max and Gerry just make me laugh.
So would I recommend this series......Absolutely but if you have never read these amazing author's books you definitely need to start with dark fae as that is the first series to introduce zodiac academy and the lovable Leo and the hotness that is Darious, Gabe and Carson happy reading xxxxxx
