The stars called us.

The Veil closed at our backs.

And now death holds us in its clutches.

We were torn from life before our time, a Savage King, his queen, a betrayed son, a wronged brother, a scorned wife and so many more. We watch those we left behind as they struggle against the grip of the stars, the answers to so many of their questions within our grasp and yet out of their reach.

But what if we could find a way to answer their pleas? What if we could find a way to help them from this side of the divide? And what price would such a thing come at?

*This is a bridging book which takes place beyond The Veil (in the land of the dead) during the events of book 8 in the Zodiac Academy series. It should be read after book 8 to avoid spoilers for that book and holds the answer to what takes place for the characters who are held within the clutches of death by this point in the story, as well as vital clues to the conclusion of this epic series.*

Overall Opinion :

I am gonna mention this in the starting of the review only that I am going to avoid spoilers and what this book is all about and won't be mentioning anything about the characters in this story and how it unfolds.

All I can say is that OMG. I swear I didn't know that I would ever love a book so much. It is not even one of the main books of this series but more of an extra one but seriously wow. Just when I think that the sisters will stop surprising me and stop surpassing my expectations, they always shock me and kind of drown me in need for more zodiac academy books 🥹😂

If there is one book world out of the thousands I know , I would choose Solaris to live in. I ahve never ever been more connected to a series and the characters as I am to this one. I love them all , even the small side characters. It's amazing how these authors have created so many amazing characters. This book will make you sob , laugh and also make you freaking angry. Definitely a must read for all the Zodiac Academy fans.

I know people often stick to the full length books of a series and skip these ones but make sure that you don't make that mistake with this one. This book plays a crucial part in the series and even has some answers to the questions I had about this series . It is strictly to be read after book 8 as it contains tons of spoilers but this book is by no chance an optional read because I found it phenomenal and absolutely mind blowing all the ways!!

Totally recommending this one to all the dark fantasy romance loving people out there. Zodiac Academy is a series that contains a world of amazing characters and tropes that you can never imagine and quite frankly, you can never get enough of them as well.
