The Awakening

(The first book in the Zodiac Academy series)
A novel by


What happens to the students who anger the cold-blooded Dragon Shifter, vicious Vampire, black-hearted Werewolf and cruel Siren who run this school?

They pay in blood.

But what's that got to do with me?

A helluva a lot more than I'd like...

I just discovered I'm a Fae with unspeakable power, an heir to an entire kingdom, and a threat to those four ruthless supernaturals who are also in line to rule this world. 

And I'm a twin. So she's damned to the same fate too.

They want to hurt us.

They want to break us.

And they'll stop at nothing to make us bow at their feet.

My Gemini sign meant little to me until now, but the stars rule this world. They define my Elemental magic, determine my nature and twist my will.

But I've never bought into daily horoscopes, so I'm not gonna start now.

I'll determine my own fate. And I'm here for one thing and one thing alone: the inheritance my royal parents left in their wake.

There's just one catch...

We have to graduate before it's given to us. So until then, the heirs won't stop fighting to get rid of us. And I have the awful feeling they don't just want us gone, they want us dead.
