5.0 out of 5 starsWhat the what?
Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2019
I was not expecting anything in this book. Each book in this series has gotten better. This is now one of my top 5 favorite series I have read.
Note: I received this book from the author and I voluntarily give this review, it is my honest opinion.
Grim Witchery is the seventh book in the Royals of Villain Academy series and it's the best book yet! I loved this book, I simply devoured it, enjoying every single moment.
Rory has been through so much and with her mother back you would think the assaults from the barons would finally decrease but it's just the opposite all of the barons are increasing the pressure on not only Rory but the other scions and the naries as well. The scions are banding together to protect not only each other but to stop the barons from doing dastardly things but when they find out what the barons are truly up to they don't know if they will be enough to stop what's coming.
Eva manages to create a really good balance between, the steamy scenes and the arc of the story. I love it when Rory and her guys are together, even Malcolm, who in the beginning I was like no way but now I'm so team Malcolm, I know, shocking right. Rory has brought out so many positive aspects in the scions and got them to see things in a different light while they have offered her not only guidance in a new world but they support her as well. Also thanks to Rory the relationship between the guys has become better, sturdier than it has ever been. These are all signs of a good relationship, I don't want Rory to have to give up any of them and I don't want the scions to have to give up anything to keep their relationship but I know that's not always possible, I just hope that it all works out.
As for the plot... dude! A lot went down in this book, first Rory's birth mother is no joke. Not only is baron Bloodstone powerful but she has the full-on attitude of the other barons and to make matters worse she seems a little unsteady due to her years of captivity. The barons are starting to put their schemes into play and no one is safe. I thought things were looking bad before but now... and things can always get worse. I can't wait to see how Rory and her guys deal with them.
The writing was perfectly smooth but what really got me was all the bombshells. There were so many shocking plot twists that happen and that ending, gawd I am not ready for the series to end but I am so ready for the final book, I have to no what happens, how is it going to end and will everyone make it out alive? So many questions that need answering, it's all happening in the final book, Vicious Arts and I'm so excited!
First, I’d just like to start by saying that, out of all of them so far, this is probably one of my favourite covers. And as for content – wow. We really are gearing up for the final showdown now. This will probably be a shorter review because there’s not much I can say that I haven’t said already. Like its predecessors, Grim Witchery was well written and plenty engaging, enough that I absolutely flew through it in one sitting. And there was even a little more action in this book, which made it all the more enjoyable.
There were also some surprising new developments that I didn’t see coming at all. I don’t believe that I would have been able to spot signs in previous books had I been informed about them ahead of time, but they aren’t so outlandish that they’re completely outside the realm of possibility either. And then with everything that happened at the end – including that totally mean ending – wow is really the only word to describe it. The equilibrium has once again been disrupted, and with only one more book left to go, I can’t even begin to imagine how everything will end. I just hope that the wait for the last book passes quickly.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe pressure and the passion is ramping up

This series is intense and is still building, it will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I just could not put this book down. I was so absorbed into the story, fiction yes, but with so much realism with the internal politics and the ‘good ol boys club’ running the show. Plenty of action and even more twists and turns, just when you thought things would be winding down things get more ramped up.
This is a multi book series and you must read from book one to get the full effect, but with that said the author does an excellent job of weaving in many details and events from past books back into this book to keep the reader up to speed.
The awesome transition of Rory being independent and on her own in the beginning of the story and now they are all working as a team, that is not only carried throughout the entire book series but in the covers too, I think that added such a high quality touch. The covers are awesome, if you had not noticed, look how Rory is maturing on each book cover. A full length book and series that I highly recommend. I received this book for free and voluntarily reviewed.
5.0 out of 5 starsIntense and a roller coaster! can't wait!

Rory and her pentacle of scions have really grown since the first book. I love how tight and close they get as they continue on their journey and time at the university. They each are so loyal and protective of each other. Rory's willingness to show her true feelings, hope, and desire especially to their future was memorable. All were in agreement and solidarity. Left an indelible mark. I'm really glad they are all trying to achieve the same goal in the best subtle way as possible. Even with the scion's guard, it is still very difficult to go up against 5 full barons. Since Rory's mom return to the barons has escalated conditions in the non-magical community and her time with the joymancers have left internal marks in the way she handles betrayal. There was some surprises in the book. It's definitely wonderful to have another unexpected ally. I can't wait for book 8! I can't wait to learn more about Holden, Jude's magic/Uncle, Malcolm's sister, Malcolm's discovery, and if the scion can truly overcome the newest and biggest development in the barons' plan.
I felt that in this book Rory and the other scions were finally going into action against the Barons. So many things were done and I really enjoyed it.
Rory is amazing, as usual. Even with what her mother does, Rory still tries to avoid hurting her. She even felt bad about Connar's mother (and that one was a real *****).
Jude scared the hell out of me. He almost did something insane but thankfully Rory talked some sense into him. He's still my favorite. Declan is also here to save the day, being all cautious and everything. As for Connar, I'm happy for his brother. I cannot believe their parents knew he could be healed, but did nothing. Disgusting. And Malcolm... I really hope he and Rory aren't related. I'm sure they're not but still, it scares me a little.
Now I cannot wait to read Vicious Arts and see if the scions will win the war against the Barons.
