Publisher's Summary

Do I want to spend my summer with my vicious classmates at Bloodstone University - better known as Villain Academy? No, thank you. But I've got to find a way to tackle my enemies before they try to destroy me again, and the trail to potential answers starts there.

I've had it with taking the high road, though. Come at me, and you'd better believe I'll hit you back just as hard. Maybe that'll mean I have to tap into my dark magic instincts more than I'd ever have planned to, but I'm not letting one more person I care about get hurt.

That also means I've got to steer clear of the one guy I completely trust, or I might ruin his life, too. With two of the other scions vying for my attention and the last shifting his campaign against me in an unexpected way, I've got my hands full as it is.

I can't say whether I'll survive everything this summer has in store. All I know for sure is it's going to be a hot one.

Sinister Wizardry is the third book in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no one’s will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance where there'll be no choosing required.

The academy has never been more cutthroat

I love this story about Rory, Declan, Connor, Jude and Malcolm and the summer semester at the academy. The way the guys attempt to get into Rory's good graces and the mystery that is unraveling around the Barrons is amazing and spellbinding.

Better and better!

These just keep getting more interesting. Always wondering what powers she can use next? Who/what evil is after her now? Which of the boys will she choose or more than one? They all seem either like of dislike each other but not her. They fight amongst each other about their actions and how they are family and they should just get along. Even though this is a large cast we get to see some new people introduced. Rory has some relatives and family friends coming out of the woodwork. Rory just impresses me already fighting to good fight. No temptation....other than the boys. I did listen to this on audio. Meg Sylvan and Stephen Dexter are always a joy to listen to.

Another great book!!!

Warning- this books ends on a pretty big cliffhanger.. but it is soooo good!!!!! So we picked up where we left off. Rory's mentor died but left her a key to help her get some answers. Jude did something so horrible that ended up in Shelby leaving the school. :(. Declan is still aces in my book. Malcom is still mean and I think Connor is coming around. So Rory is going the summer school session where she finds out she must use her powers on the naries in a project. Rory, being the awesome person she is, does something unexpected with this. The tension between the naries and the mages gets more intense in this book . The cliffhanger just about killed me!!!! I can't wait for the next book. As always I love the duel narration from Stephen and Meg. #Audodbx Review

Summer Classes get HOT!

Sinister Wizardry by Eva Chase and narrated by Meg Sylvan and Stephen Dexter is book 3 in the Villain Academy series. I love this book, as Rory does everything she can to take fear and turn it into something good. Connor and Jude have changed their attitudes toward Rory and are now trying to help her while Malcolm is still trying to destroy her. Declan is doing what he can to help her but keeping his distance at the same time. Rory is still trying to deal with Imogen after her betrayal but giving her a chance regardless. As it seems to be so far in each book, there's a murder and this time, Rory is charged. Follow Rory and her harem of Scions through the summer adventure and see just where not choosing gets you. I highly recommend this book and so far the entire series.

Mixed Feelings

On the one hand, this story is so compelling. The magic system, the romance, and the school project are excellent. When any of those topics are the focus, the story flies. But the main plotline/mystery is so boring. It's mostly Rory looking through paperwork that has to do with characters we don't care about, who are related to other characters we don't care about. I know that this will eventually come together to some big event but man... I wish I could skip all those parts. It's not like I'll remember any of the 1000 names that we added to the Bad Guy list. I mean... should fantasy have this much paperwork? Is there a magical more interesting way to discover information? The bullying is also somewhat stale and we already had a climax where Debra was being threatened... so it's sort of... been done? The mean girls in particular are afully one note. The main 5 and two or three other characters are very well done and pull me through the series. But I'm reluctant to keep going based on the slow pace and main plotline. The fun stuff with Malcome was a 10/10 especially things that happened in the classroom.

A wizard of a listen for your heart

Wow this audio story will have you wondering till the end . Book 3 continues where book 2 ended . With lots of twists and a turns . Eva wrote a very strong story . Eva is a wizard with grabbing your attention and having you listen hook line and sinker. Eva wrote a story that will remind you of the university that Harry Potter went to . Some people are your friends but there is some that will try to skin you alive . The Bloodstone university is on summer break . Rory needs to find out where that key that her professor gave her belongs to . She also meets one of her mothers best friend, a black suit , The police of the mags . Rory bonds with 3 of her scions , yes one of them is not Malcom. Rory also has an idea of how to protect the normal people from the dark Mags , build a building that will be just for them. Her idea comes when the school has a contest where each Mag has to influence a normal person. The idea for a building is going great till the other Mags but doubt in the normal people’s head . That is where Connor comes in . Also Rory finds out something about Jude that might destroy his life . And Connor shows Rory a secret that you never saw coming There is a lot going on because everyone wants to bring the most powerful Mag down. I’m just tell bits and pieces of the story Wow what can I say Stephen Dexter and Meg Sylvan performance was great. The way both performed the characters were great

This series has me hooked! Book 3 starts pulling together more RH aspects with many twists and a surprise cliffhanger! Can't wait to start book 4!

Can’t stop listening!

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. Can’t stop listening! In this book Rory is certainly working her way on the guys making them question what they have been taught and how they think. Rory is attending her first session of summer school with a very clever way of seeing exactly how people will act. Rory has such an inner strength that you can’t help but love. I’m really looking forward to the next book especially after that ending!!

Holly Hell of a ride!!

wow too many things to unpack! I love the evolution of the characters, the change in their mindset and how the RH element is embedded in the story. The plot is getting thicker and holly cow that ending! I am glad I picked this series once it was complete. diving right into the next installment. Both narrators are doing a great job at bringing the story to life even though I prefer the female narrator. Connar's male narrator voice makes butterflies flutter in my belly!!

The shock...

Eva Chase has produced another amazing book in the series. Not adding too much of a spoiler here As the guys fall apart and pull back together, there is only one more relationship to repair... Malcom and Rory. But that last chapter the ending... Cliff hanger has no grasp on it. Did not expect that ending...

Completely on form!

Book 3 of a longer series is usually a tipping point for me: I'll either abandon, or in this case fall head over heels and NEED the whole of the rest of the series right freaking now! True to form, Rory HATES the premise of the summer project, but taking her own slant on it seems to grow up, step above the petty crap her classmates are dealing to her and really step into her own power (literal and metaphorical). I love how each of the guys are beginning to come around separately, that she has a healthy amount of trust around Imogen without simply throwing a friendship away the way a more imature heroine might. I also did NOT see that cliffhanger coming! (Yep, there is one - if you're a non-cliffhanger person then I suggest getting book 4 at the same time)

Amazing

Eva Chase does it again with this brilliantly written story. The tension between Rory and the boys is so addicting. The story is full of more twists and turns. Whilst I have read all of the previous books in this series so far and thoroughly enjoyed them, listening to them is magical and really brings this story to life. I cannot wait to listen to the next book after such a cliff hanging ending.

Love this series

So Rory is getting better at figuring out this magic stuff and she is on track to figuring out exactly who is after her. Some of the guys are turning the corner and I find myself actually cheering for them. I love the mystery in this series. Eva continues to keep us guessing. This one ends with a cliffhanger so you will want to pick up the next book right away.

More twists and turns

Narration is as great as ever as we follow the group in their daily struggles at the academy and home. I love how things are hotting up between the group and how they are becoming more aware of the sinister world around them. I look forward to the rest of the series here on Audible.
