If you are a fan of the Zodiac Academy series, you’d be excited to know that a new book is just around the corner. The release date for the upcoming Zodiac Academy book 9 has finally been announced!
The Zodiac Academy series has 8 books at the time of writing this, along with two novellas and one online chapter, and a ninth book is on the way. This series, written by sisters Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti, is set in the adult paranormal genre. It is about twin sisters Darcy and Tory Vega, who happen to be Fae, who are about to enter the Zodiac Academy, an academy for supernatural beings.
As the series continues, they begin learning to harness their powers and discover the truth about their mysterious past. It’s a best-selling series, selling millions of copies since the first book was published.
One of the authors of the Zodiac Academy is Caroline Peckham. While she has written and published books independently, she’s been writing with her sister, Susanne Valenti, for a few years. The Zodiac Academy series is their best-selling book series, which has become very popular.
Although there are 8 full-length novels already published in the series, there’s a ninth book coming out, too. In this article, we’ll talk about the upcoming book!
What is the Zodiac Academy Book 9 Release Date?
The first book in the Zodiac Academy series, titled The Awakening, was published in 2019, while the most recent book, i.e., book 8 titled Sorrow and Starlight, came out in December 2022, and a novella titled Beyond The Veil came out in June 2023. So it hasn’t even been that long since the latest release.
However, this doesn’t mean fans aren’t itching to get some information about whether there will be a ninth book in the series.
The good news is that the authors had already announced they were working on the ninth book a couple of months back, and now we also have a release date. The Zodiac Academy book 9 will be released on April 23, 2024, according to Goodreads.
Although we have a release date, we still don’t know the book’s title. But as there’s still some time to go before the book is released, we’ll get an update about the book’s title and cover reveal soon!
Zodiac Academy Book 9’s Plot:
Although the title of the book, as well as its cover, hasn’t been revealed, the authors did reveal the synopsis. Here’s what the book is going to be about:
“Orphans. Changelings. Princesses. Queens.
We are all and nothing now; our fate is weighed on the scales of the stars and counterbalanced by the forces that oppose us.
The shadow of the false king spreads as thick as oil across the kingdom we were born to rule, and none remain untouched by its darkness.
Our crowns lay within reach if only we can claim them. All souls are at risk now, and when the final battle dawns, a new regime will rise. The time for the true reckoning is upon us, and we have proven ourselves as savage as our father, as brutal as our mother, and as wild as the Elements which roar through our veins. We can only hope it is enough.
When the last sword strikes the final death in this game of fate and fortune, only one side will be victorious. The Starfall Legion charges at first light. And our destiny rides upon our shoulders as we rush into the end.
All hail the True Queens. May our rule last longer than this night.”
What is the Zodiac Academy Series About?
If you’re a fan of magic, paranormal, astrology, romance, drama, and mystery, the Zodiac Academy series is for you. This epic book series by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti revolves around an academy of magic and the events that take place there or in the lives of students and professors.
The series is set in a magical world known as Solaria, where magic is real, and mythical creatures such as faeries, werewolves, and vampires exist.
The story follows the lives of twin sisters, Tory and Darcy Vega, who discover they are Fae and not regular humans. Upon reaching 18 years of age, they are taken to the Zodiac Academy to awaken their powers, learn how to harness them, and ultimately claim their rightful place as the daughters of the King and Queen of Solaria.
However, the Zodiac Academy isn’t a fun place to be at; it’s a cutthroat place where the supernatural students have no qualms in beating down those weaker than them. Actually, this kind of bullying is encouraged!
While most Fae can only harness one elemental power – either Air, Fire, Water, or Earth – Tory and Darcy discover they can harness all of them, making them the rarest Elementals seen in thousands of years.
This may be a good thing, but it puts a target on their backs as the “Four Celestial Heirs,” the strongest beings in the academy, are out to beat them down before they can claim the throne!
The Zodiac Academy series comprises several books, including prequels and sequels. The prequel series, Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac, is set around five years before the main series, while the sequel series, Darkmore Penitentiary, is set around five years after.
Overall, the Zodiac Academy series is an exciting and magical journey that will transport you to a world of wonder, mystery, and ruthlessness.
The adult paranormal genre might have been a niche genre at one point, but now it is very much mainstream. This can be attributed to such books as The Cruel Prince, which did bring the paranormal adult into popular culture. Whatever caused the genre to explode into popularity is to thank for all the great books that have been created in this genre.
The Zodiac Academy series is just one of many popular adult paranormal books out there, and it is rightfully deserved. Now that the Zodiac Academy book 9’s release date is just around the corner, it is the perfect time to pick up the series and start reading it!
