The shadows are in my blood.

I can feel them crawling through me, slithering under my skin and taking me hostage.

But the darkness within me, isn't nearly as bad as the darkness that lives around me.

The four heirs will stop at nothing to destroy the lives of me and my sister.

But they haven't figured out yet, we're the strongest creatures they've ever known...

This is the fourth book in the Supernatural Bullies and Beasts series.

Not going to continue

Definitely liked this book series it was a little hard the first two books but overall idea of the book kept me reading until book 4 I got halfway through book 4 and had to just stop because it was so frustrating I feel like the author dragged things out too long and took things too far and not in a good way. It just feels like when things start to kind of get a little bit better everything just completely falls apart over and over and over again and how much of that can you really read before you’re frustrated and depressed… looked up other peoples reviews and it really never gets better so why keep reading?…
So sad this book series had so much potential.

WTF happened???

This ending ruined the whole book! It did worse for this series than the last 2 episodes of GOT! I would have continued listening to the rest of the books but this ending ended any interest I had.

so dramatic

hate the ending, consent is nonexistent in this book and it's so dramatic with unnecessary cruelty but I love the narrators

this installment may have turned me off the series

characters were good at the beginning of the series but they have been making stupid and transparent mistakes for too long. it's become frustrating to listen to with no payoff other than more foolish decisions with obvious solutions that never occur to any of the characters.

What A Letdown!

Darcy needs to pull her head out of ass! This ending sucked. I don’t mind cliff hangers but Darcy went from being my absolute favorite to the most irritating. Her anger is too much work to keep rooting for her. I wish the authors would have given the readers at least one win with this one.

Absolutely no interest in spending money or time investing in the remainder of the series. I’d rather find out how it ends via Google.

Not worth the time.

I have followed the series this far anticipating what could happen, excited for the order forms to emerge, for friendships to grow, to find true love beyond the hate. This book ruins it all with egos, whining, and long drawn out explanations. I found myself forwarding through the long drawn out details of internal thoughts and character complaining. Rather than giving a twist of two enemies come together over love and alliances built to go against their common enemy. They are pushed further apart. The ending was overly dramatic and did not lead to curiosity for the next book.

Blown away

This series just keep getting better and better, and I absolutely love the audios for them. The narrator is one of my favorites, the emotion and feeling she puts into the character really makes me FEEL what’s happening. And visualize it so much clearer than with other narrators. Something a certain reader will have a “tick” or a certain way of saying a word or sound that will really bother or distract me, but after listening to so many of Bridget’s books I can confidently say she doesn’t have any of these flaws. I’m a firm believer in the fact that a narrator can make or break the book, and these narrators absolutely MAKE them! I’m dying for book 5 to release on audio!! 🤞🏻🤞🏻

I WILL SAY : the ending of this one got me. I do not like the way things ended. An insanely intense cliffhanger. J wish things would have worked just djfferentmy in the end if this one, but I’m holding out hope that things will work themselves out in the next few books in the series. IF I CAN GET THEM ON AUDIO SOON!! I can’t switch to physicals for this series because the narrator is part of what I love so much about ZA!

If you enjoy:
💫 enemies to lovers
💫 bully romance
💫Unbreakable Sisterly bonds
💫Sexy antiheroes
💫Teacher student romances
💫Unique magic systems and settings
💫Strong FMC’s
Than check out the Zodiac Academy series!

Left me broken

First off, I love this series. The end of the book however, left me devastated. Even more so because the next one isn’t out on audible yet for me to binge. I don’t want to give away spoilers but just prepare yourself mentally towards the end of the book. It ripped my heart out of my soul.

All for nothing

Bridget nailed her performance. Especially with the finale! Jake needs some coaching on "this" and "his" but is decent otherwise. But the story this time.... honestly, totally ruined the series for me. I was hoping for an awesome character arc where two characters would learn to see the others reasons but I was severely disappointed. The past few books have been building to this moment of understanding and it fell so flat... I'm honestly no longer interested

Whew...that was emotional. I audibly gasped

Loved it. The naration is amazing and the story compelling. I audibly gasped and nearly cried severall times. I can always feel what direction each Zodiac Academy is heading into, but the twists at the end always catch me off guard

Shadow Princess

This is the fourth book in the Zodiac Academy series. Darcy and Tory have just passed the Reckoning and their orders finally emerged. They are having to learn how to tame the shadow magic. They now have to keep their orders a secret from Darius’s dad. This book ending completely devastated me! I was not expecting that to happen. I am definitely going to have take a minute to prepare myself to continue on. Bridget and Jake Bordeaux did an absolutely phenomenal job narrating this book.

A heart grabbing story

Book 4 in the series . Like all books in the series, this book picks up where the last book ended. This story is a roller coaster of a listen. Darcy is put through a grinder , with so many ups and downs . This is where Diego reveals what is going on with his hat There is so many things going on , the twins going to the palace, Orion almost dying by his sister.

Bridget Bordeaux, and Jake Bordeaux performance is phenomenal, love how they bring you right into the book beside the characters.

I’m an emotional wreck

I just don’t know what to say. I’m addicted. I’ve done the first 4 books this week and my husband is about to leave me because I’m ignoring him. I just can’t take this emotional rollercoaster. I do want to slap Tory round the face 90% of the time though…get a grip woman!

Why isn’t book 5 on audible?! Sob.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!

I haven't cried this hard because of a book since Allegiant and I can't believe this series has got me blubbering so hard. If you told me on book one I would be a mess I wouldn't have believed you.

By 80% in I was like ok maybe I need a break from this series I'm getting a bit bored. Then BAM I'm hit with this ending and my soul hurts

I knew something bad was coming, I was Sus the whole time. But THIS?! This was not what I expected or predicted.

I utterly love this series ❤️

Great world, brilliant characters, the narrators are the best in their vocal range for different people. You have no issues knowing which character is which, considering how many lead characters thus series has. I have one huge issue with this particular book, what in the 🌎 are the fae of salaris doing celebrating Christmas 🎄 😳 🤔 SERIOUSLY I do not understand , when did christ go to salaris? why is the religioun based on the stars astrology etc if they are Christian ✝️ 🤔 to me this destroys the enjoyment of the book, the depth you lose yourself. or do the writers believe i am an idiot as i am a Christian.
Beyond that whinge i love this series 😍 👏 ❤️ 🙌 ♥️ 💕 😍 👏

Narration is hard to listen to

It's hard to listen to the narration bit I do like the plot. The sex scenes seem a bit too frequent and get a little boring after a while. Hooked on the story though, so I'll keep going!

I hope this series never ends

I've just finished the last book available on Audible and seriously, this is one of the best series I've read.
These books will have you screaming, crying, laughing, loving, hot under the collar and so many more emotions.
Do yourself a favour and read these books- yes okay there's some bullying, and yes it's hard to endure at times but I swear if you stick with it and ride the wave you will not be disappointed and you will absolutely adore this series. TRUST ME. Go on the journey and live this story!

Editing cuts make it hard to listen to

There are moments in this audiobook where mid-sentence the dialog will change to a different tone of voice like it has been sliced in after the fact.
