With a firm resolve, she will forsake her own future in order to save him. Their love will trigger an ancient war. Can Serena and Tristan rewrite their destinies? Or will the Vergina Sun prophecy be fulfilled, and the lovers fall to fate? Welcome back to the Royal Protector Academy.
I started reading this series last year. I feel in love with Vernal (book 1) of the Royal Academy Protector series. Great beginning. I jumped right into reading Aqeuus (book 2). I knew that the third book Nox would be out until later 2017, so I paused at 60% of the book. I didn’t feel like finishing book 2 and being left in anxiety until book 3 was released. It took a little longer than expected but Nox finally came out January of this year.
I still didn’t begin finishing reading Aqeuus right away. I needed to ensure that I would be able to read it uninterrupted. I was wondering if I should add it to my summer read but I decided what the heck, I have waited long enough, let me not torcher myself anymore. This weekend I found my quiet place and devoured the book.
This book blew me away. I scream for Tristan. How do I love Tristan, let me count the ways? Hot half gargoyle, half nymph. It’s no wonder he is wanted by women in every realm. His love for Serena, is beautiful. He is willing to do whatever it takes to be with the woman that he loves.
My favorite quote in this book.
“In her love, I find peace.”
I enjoy Serena. Her strength, and stubbornness. I don’t know if I would be able to watch the man that I love be with someone else. She showed strength that many of us wouldn’t be able to.
All the other characters in the series are great. The book is GREAT. Wait wrong word, it’s PHENOMENAL!!! The complexity of the book, how each character intertwines. You can never tell what’s coming next, you turn the page, biting your nails. When you feel that you have figured it out. Wrong, something else happens that throws you but it so… so… good.
If you are a fan of paranormal and fantasy novels and haven’t read this series. You are seriously lacking.
This is a series I will read again and again. Randi does a great job drawing readers into the novel. I felt as if I was apart of the story. Standing there on the side lines watching everything happening. Drooling over Tristan, wishing I was Serena.
I want to tell you so much but I need to keep it in. MUST… MUST… MUST READ!!!!
This is a phenomenal read.
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
