Evermore Academy: Summer Synopsis
Welcome to Evermore Academy where the magic is dark, the immortals are beautiful, and being human SUCKS.
After Hellebore Narcissus exposed my secret, he claimed me as his, a pawn in a deadly Faerie game I’m only just beginning to understand.
Now, I’m caught in a complex web of bloodthirsty courts, ancient feuds, and the lust for ultimate power. To expose Hellebore and recover the Darken’s soulstone, I must become an expert at navigating the cunning world of the Fae and my new life at the academy—all the while resisting my true mate, the Winter Prince.
Win this game, and I regain my freedom while saving humanity—lose and the entire mortal world will fall to the Fae.
But what if the only way to win involves giving up my soulmate forever?
Evermore Academy: Summer Review
Audrey Grey’s Evermore Academy is definitely a new favourite series of mine. The Summer year is the third and final book in this series and it does not disappoint! Evermore Academy: Summer takes place after the Evermore Academy: Spring finale. Summer is bonded by contract to Hellebore and sequestered to her new home until the new year at the academy starts. She has minimal visits allowed with Eclipsa, Asher, and Mack; and no contact at all allowed by Valerian, the Winter Prince. In fact, if Valerian even looks at Summer, Hellebore is allowed to kill him. When the Summer Year at the Academy starts, Summer has more freedom from her contract, but she is still stuck doing what Hellebore decides for her. She has to figure out herself, her relationship and on top of it all, she has to figure out what The Darken is planning with his allies within the Fae realm, or else lose everything and everyone she now holds dear.
Summer grows so much over the series and overcomes a lot of obstacles. I am so happy however, that she never forgets where she comes from, even with all the new information she learns about her history. I love that she is strong and puts her friends first, and that her friends recognize this and call her out when she needs to step back and put herself ahead. Eclipsa is one of my favourites sassy badass assassins. There is still some growing she could do and I still feel like we are missing part of her story. Maybe we will get it as a novella (*fingers crossed*). Asher and Mack omg those two. Mack and Asher both have such similar qualities. They are both so loyal to their loved ones, to a fault. Mack always stands up for Summer against anyone, even when its in her best interest to stay quiet and I love this about her. Valerian, oh my sweet Winter Prince. He struggles in this book a lot. We also see how much he will put Summer before himself and he’s always putting her interest before himself. The growth we see from him in the series is great, especially when you consider how closed off and icy he was in Evermore Academy: Winter and what he learns in the Spring year. Ruby is by far the funniest character and provides so much comic relief throughout the series. I hope Summer keeps her well fed with candies and she gets more Tall Goats to cuddle with. This little Sprite gives Summer so much support despite being a hot mess.
Audrey’s writing in this novel is just like the first two. You just get pulled into the world and immersed in the story. Evermore Academy: Summer is the least action packed of the three, as it takes on a more political manoeuvring and “Who Done It” plot as Summer is thrust into her new roles and responsibilities. I think everyone will be happy with the ending and the major twists and turns throughout the final novel! Although there is some points in the story that are left open-ended; leaving room for a spinoff (hopefully!). Overall, this series is definitely a must read for those who love Fae and Academia settings!
I would like to thank Audrey Grey for sending me an eARC for a fair and honest review.
