    Unsatisfying I really liked the first book. The second one was a little off. This one frustrated me, to the point that I was tempted not to finish it. Thank goodness it was short. Let’s start with what I did like: the final battle. It was fast paced and engaging, even though there were things that moved too quickly (as in poorly thought out), and didn’t really make sense.

I’m super annoyed that Melany gets it on with Hades, and then a few chapters later with Lucian. THEN, not even twenty four hours later she’s banging Hades again! Now, if this were a case where both of the guys were in on it and chill with it, that would annoy me less (still obnoxious and unrealistic, but I’ll let it go), but that is obviously not the case. Lucien is afraid to bring it up, and Hades is passive aggressive about it. It’s terrible, and really made me dislike Melany. And the end was... lame. We have this battle, and then suddenly it’s a couple months later and everything that has happened with her is basically brushed under the rug. It felt like the authors didn’t really have a plan beyond that battle, so they just kinda left it, figuring their audience would be ok with it. ((Sure, yeah, I’ll just fill all that in on my own, because there definitely isn’t an even MORE interesting story to be told there.)) I’ve finished the series, I can move on with my life now. No, I’m not recommending this series to anyone BECAUSE of this last book. There is no point. I’m not usually this scathing in my reviews, but this one really irritated me.

    An amazing story, too bad it’s the last Impossible to stop reading once you’ve started. Fascinating.

    Dropped it mid-way. From the first two books of the series, it was clear that this was going to be like a reverse-harem-type situation but I expected a bit more of romance or rationale to the actions of the leads. Melany started off as a strong bold girl but in this book she is reduced to a bed-hopping indecisive brash and stupid person.

She provokes without reason and the speed at which she sleeps with Lucian after sleeping with Hades - if a male lead had done it, a lot more people would be crying misogynism and 'using women' etc. But what really turned me off was the boring usual spinoff about how Mel is the special cookie - the one who would save the world. I want to read at least one YA fantasy where there is no world-saving expected out of a single person. The cliches, the bed-hoppings, the lack lustre romance and finally the stupid reactions of Mel ruined the last book of this trilogy.

    Disappointed I had high hopes with the first book in this series, lost a little of it by the second book, and for me book three crashed and burned. Potential relationships were not dealt with or done away with in an abrupt manner. The heroine, Mel, was turned into a walking Greek tragedy. The ending was anticlimactic. Blink and it was over. It was so rushed. Bad guys dealt with, unnecessary elimination of good ones, and The End.

    Man, I loved the first book, but in the end the series was a disappointment. Hades and her save Lucian. Right afterwards she has sex with Hades. Then later she has sex with Lucian, just to turn around and have sex with Hades the same day. I dont read reverse harem, which is why I read this. I want an epic love story, or at least a sweet romance. Not bed hopping, loving two guys at once, one we barely know anything about and has said right to her face they don't have a relationship.

If this was a guy I would be screaming and not finishing up the book, but I was interested in the battle, and who she would up with. She gets poisoned, dies, and meets Persephone, who is the daughter of Demeter, and Mels bloodline. She is told she is the key, she sees her parents, they were killed. We find out that the academy was started long long ago by a Titan and a human for knowledge. But Zeus stopped being worshiped and the gods were losing power. So he overthrew the titans and took control of the school. Zeus and his crew want to release the Titans and force them to destroy the human world, so that fear and hope brings more people to worship them. In the end Mel has her friends give them their element powers. Hades takes a blow from zeus to save her, dies, and she kills Zeus. Revana died the one time she made the right choice to not follow Aphrodite.The last chapter is in Lucians pov 2 months later. The friends don't have their powers, and don't have high hopes of them returning. The titan comes back to run the school. Aphrodite and Ares are banished to Tartarus and Lucian is now head of training. Poor Gina lost an arm. Mel isn't the same, and she is talking to Hades, but no one can see him. Then it just ends. It was pretty disappointing that this was the end. The first book was so amazing, so this is a let down. Its like having the best salad ever, a meh overcooked steak, and then finishing dinner with rancid pudding. I still hope that more in this world could be explored in a future book, then maybe we could get closure.

    Yea, I can spot those "why choose" vibes from a mile away. I am just going to say that I like it when the author puts in the blurb that their books have either "why choose" or RH aspects. I have no problem with either of these aspects and read a ton of both. The problem lies when I don't know how to feel because it wasn't identified as an option ahead of time. So is it really "why choose?" or, is our FMC a cheating McCheaterson and should I be mad about it? Are the guys mad about it? They both h Yea, I can spot those "why choose" vibes from a mile away.

They both have aggressive vibes toward each other, but at the same time its like noone wants to talk about it. How come noone is having some adult conversations here!?? ....and this is why I like a little clarification to start. This last book definitely took a turn into NA with some graphic scenes.. not like OTT or anything but definitely not YA. Melany and her friends are really in the thick of it now as all kinds of stuff hit the fan here in book three. Season one has concluded, the bad guys are brought out and exposed and dealt with... and yet... it seems like there is even more going on. Season 2 starts next year at the Academy and Hades is acting shady (pun intended.) Not sure what else we are going to face, and I'm not all too happy with where we have left off, with like no closure here. I'll probably check the next season out to see where its headed, but I'm a little disappointed at the end of season 1 here. I mean I should be feeling all the "feels".. but I'm just a little lost here. We will see.

(view spoiler)[ Mel starts having affairs with both guys, claiming to love them both. It's weird. Had sex with Hades, then had sex with Lucian, then had another round with Hades. It's getting frustrating. Learns she has Persephone's blood running through her veins, well, a little bit of it. And that's when things get totally confusing for me. Persephone's a goddess, Hades' wife, so unless she was cheating on him with someone mortal and given birth to the child without him noticing, Mel might have some Hades' blood as well, if their child started procreating. That makes Mel and Hades thing an incest, which leads me to almost puking when I really think about it. I mean, they could have chosen anyone's blood, why Persephone's? Speaking of gods, how exactly a god can be killed? Titans had trouble killing a God, even though they kinda were stonger. And Mel just goes and kills Zeus? The God of all Gods? While at it, authors also kill off Hades, making Mel's choice simpler. (Btw, thanks for not ending up with Hades. One good thing about the whole book.) If gods could kill each other so easily, how did they manage to live for thousands of years? I mean, there is always tension, wars, intrigues, backstabbing involved, so that leaves me with so many questions. But then again, maybe, I'm judging their demigod's world based on Percy Jackson's world. But Rick Riordan sticks to legends and common sense, and that's why his books are amazing. (hide spoiler)] The third book's ending was so disappointing. They wrote a short chapter on what was happening after the big event, and it was not even about the main characters. Losses, tragedy, grief - everything was very shallow. Most people whom we've grown to love while reading the first two books didn't get more than one sentence in the end. I expected more. The story was so promising, I felt cheated and robbed of a proper goodbye. Don't like the feeling, don't recommend it to anyone.

Also it ends so anticlimatically. After such care is taken to describe Melany's training, the final battle just ended so abruptly. It felt as if the authors got sick of this series and wanted it to just be over. Therefore, for me, the book is 2 & 1/2 stars instead of a 3 or a 4.

    I have always been a big fan of the covers for the Demigods Academy books, each one always powerful and hauntingly beautiful. The lightning on this one really gives it that tension it needs to signify the events upcoming within. Much like book two, book three picks up from the events of the previous novel.

The lightning on this one really gives it that tension it needs to signify the events upcoming within. Much like book two, book three picks up from the events of the previous novel. Thrown straight back into the chaos and heartbreak that was the battle with the Chimera and Lucian dying. We discover Melanys pain at prospect of losing Lucian, so much so she was selfless enough to take his place. Lucky for her she has the King of the Underworld on her side. We get Lucian back but it is not without consequence. Whilst there is relief there for Melany at not having to lose Lucian, the scare doesn’t seem to quite be enough to put things into perspective for her and quench her desire for Hades, and so she continues to be confused and torn between the two. This is the beginning of a significant theme in the book; when some of the characters make very questionable decisions there is only acceptance, no shaming of any kind. The story is written with so much power that you experience the characters emotions right alongside them, including Melanys confusion and anger in addition to her intense attraction to both Hades and Lucian. The last installment of the Demigods series is the most action packed by far, with betrayals coming in fast and heavy. some expected and some quite surprising. We see a divide developing between all of the characters as sides are drawn which is very much a representation of the society we live in today where we let our beliefs define and segregate us. The pressure that the recruits have to endure finally starts to crack the strong bond between the friends. There is so much deceit that we even begin to question the people closest to Melany and their motives. One event in particular results in Melany introducing us to some new characters briefly, and while it helps to develop the story I wish we could have had more time with them. **Spoiler Alert** We get to meet Persephone which I was thrilled about because the story of Hades and Persephone was what brought about my love for Greek Mythology, they are by far my favourite. We continue to experience the adventure that Melany and her friends are on and as they head into the biggest battle they are ever going to have to face they do it together and as one. As they do so the casualties start rolling in and losses start building up including the characters we love and hate. As we come to the end of the final battle we experience an explosive ending that has a lasting impact on all of the characters, Melany most of all. Order is restored and the group are able to move on with their lives. The ending has left me wanting more and with so many questions but I feel like should they ever want to that the ending leaves space for another installment. Elisa S Amore and Kiera Legend have collaborated to create a series that is pure magic that takes readers on an adventure they couldn’t even dream of. Containing imagination and using such skill to create a story line that is clear. And whether intentional or not have gifted readers with an added surprise. Lucians character is described as being the exact opposite to Hades, whilst Hades is all dark Lucian is described as being light. Interestingly Lucian is a French name which translates as, you guessed it, light. Prepare yourself for the end guys, the wait was worth it.

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel Blurb: On their eighteenth birthday, everyone in the world receives a Shadowbox—a magic box that is a gift like no other… because it’s a gift from the Gods. For the majority of people, there’s only a birthday message inside their Shadowbox. For a few chosen, though, there’s something more. Nobody knows what those special guys receive. What’s known is that they disappear and never come back. Rumors say they are invited to join the Gods’ Army… I think it’s just a load of crap. My name is Melany Richmond, and for my entire life, I’ve been an outcast, an orphan tossed around like a ship in a storm. I don’t think that gods really exist. I never even received my Shadowbox when I turned eighteen. Maybe because nobody knows my true birth date, or because not even the gods care about me. Afterall, I'm a blue haired rebel and troublemaker with tattoos all over my arms. I’m not like Callie Demos, the beautiful blondie living in the huge estate my adopted mother takes care of. She is the perfect specimen of Greek devotion and nobody doubts she will get “the call.” She has everything in her life and doesn’t appreciate any of it. Her birthday party is the biggest event in town, and everyone wants to be there when she receives her blessing. To me, it’s just another ridiculous parade. But when I secretly open her Shadowbox and feel its magic on my skin, all my beliefs vanish. Gods do exist. And if the scroll in my hands says the truth, they have a secret academy where their recruits train to become demigods. I’ve done really bad things in my life, but stealing Callie’s opportunity to attend the God’s Academy? It’s got to be the worst. If Gods find out I’m a faker, what was supposed to be someone else’s gift may turn into my personal curse. MAGIC. ADVENTURES. FRIENDSHIP. Total Score: 5/5 Summary: Melany didn’t believe in the gods. What do you expect when she was left to fend for herself in the foster system until her parents friend to her in. On your eighth birthday every young person, except for Melany, receive a shadow box where it is either a birthday notice or an invitation to go to the Demigods Academy. That is until the rich girl that Melany works for gets her shadow box, but when the box reacts to Melany she takes her chance at a new life. Everyone at the academy belongs there except for Melany, but she is about to learn that things are not what they seem and she may have as much or more reason to be there. Melany finds a new life where the gods may not quite be what everyone thinks. The academy could open up a new world or take everything away from students that do not make the grade. Join Melany and her friends as they accept the challenge of a lifetime as they gain friendships and love in a world where they leave everything on the line. It was fascinating to see the gods of old in a more human light making mistakes along the way, but their mistakes could mean dire consequences for the students of the Demigods Academy.

    Demigods Academy: Year Three is the third book in Elisa S. Amore and Kiera Legend’s Demigods series. In this book, the truth comes fully to light as to what is going on at the Academy and the battle that has been waged in the shadows comes to the forefront and a head.

In this book, the truth comes fully to light as to what is going on at the Academy and the battle that has been waged in the shadows comes to the forefront and a head. When I first started reading Demigods Academy I was hooked. I loved the variety of the characters and how the authors gave us some of the mythical characters that are usually declared evil and gave them a new twist from the norm. This book continues in that vein which I like and approve of. The authors continue to develop Melany’s relationship with Hades and Lucian. Melany is changing, but she’s not the only one. There is something strange going on with her friends. But war is coming, and there are some truths that Melany needs to learn before it’s too late. The storyline overall is well written and engaging and kept me page-turning to learn what was going to happen next. There is a nice element of mystery woven into this story during certain scenes to help push the story along a little faster in some places. This book has its good aspects and then it has it’s negative ones as well. For me – the negatives are Melany’s attitude and behavior…especially towards Hades. She flip flops between being a love-sick teenager – wanting his attention, wanting him, and trying to make him jealous or wanting him to be jealous of Lucian, and a petulant child when she doesn’t get her way when it comes to him or the other gods. I like sassy characters, but Melany really pushed the envelope at times to the point of where she was endangering her life because she wanted to mouth off. There were moments of where I understood to an extent, but others I just felt that she wanted to act like a brat and behave like she’s entitled to make demands. Another issue I had with the storyline itself is the build-up to the “epic battle.” The build-up was there, but when the actual moment came…it fell flat like a deflated balloon. I was expecting at least a couple of chapters dedicated to an epic fight, a major battle scene… and I didn’t get it. I felt disappointed that there wasn’t more to it. I honestly hate to say it, but it felt like the authors lost steam when they hit this point in the storyline because this is what everything has been leading to…and it for me, doesn’t measure up to the build. There are also a couple of scenes/situations with certain characters that I felt were glossed over. Instead of us getting to the root of what was going on we get “we’re okay now, it’s all good.” I kinda felt robbed. LOL! All in all, I am rating this book 4 out of 5 stars. The storyline overall is good, but it has it’s pitfalls that, for me, were a bit hard to ignore. My expectations were built up and then were made to fall flat on its face. The other books were thrilling and gripping, and which causes this book to feel like it was phoned in towards the end. If you enjoyed the first two books in this series, then I encourage you to read this book, but I suggest you go in with moderate expectations this time around. Regardless, I look forward to reading more from these two authors in the future.

    War is coming. Melany knows this. She has heard Ares and Aphrodite making plans. She knows they have already released Titans. But Zeus won't listen. Either he doesn't believe her ot he's on their side. Still, Melany won't just stand by and do nothing. She's not powerless. She's not alone. Her friends may not trust her completely but she still has Lucien and she still has Hades. When she takes an unexpected trip to Elysium, she gets information that could change everything.

What an interesting conclusion to this series. I will admit there were many twists and turns I never saw coming. Hades and Lucien, the reasons behind the war, the outcome; just to name a few. I really wasn't sure how the authors would get themselves out of the triangle they had written themselves into and while it wasn't 100% satisfying, it was better than I had expected. It was nicely written from beginning to end with no plot holes or unfinished story although if you are expecting an epic god battle, you won't get it. That was fine with me although it seemed a strange choice since everything built up to the final confrontation. The guys were my favorite part of this story. I loved Hades and Lucien, the Dark and Light. Melany remained a little too bratty and unnecessarily confrontational. Her approach to the gods should have ended her before she ever had a chance to stand against them. Subtlety was not an asset she possessed. Finally, I have to give special recognition to the residents of Hades Hall; Charon, Cerberus, and the Furies. Uncle Skeletor, a three-headed slobbering puppy, and three violent hags. Never would I have thought that these characters would become some of my favorites but they definitely were. The power of imaginative writing!

    Heartbreaking!!!! In my review for book 2 i was kinda mad about how Melany had gotten together with Hades. I take everything back that I said.

The sad part that actually had me in tears 😢😢😢 was the death of Hades. It was really heartbreaking. Throughout the series I was so against any idea that he would be the good guy. Come on Hades is supposed to be so darkness but to be honest he turned out to be the one God who was against ending the world. Who would've ever saw that coming. I didn't but it was a great way to show that Hades wasn't all bad. I'm still a little confused about Hades former love and Melany being distance relatives. Does this mean that she had a child of her own and who was the father? Was it Hades since Melany ended up with the Shadow power? Plus, does this mean he might have slept with and fallen in love to some degree with a member of his child's child? It's all confusing and leaves a lot of questions asked with little answers. But the story was still great and I wish there was more to read.

I would’ve liked to see more hints of what was coming perhaps in the second book, but it was well delivered even if it was a little quick. The ending left some mystery to the story and as well as leaving a door open for a potential continuation of the world. I received a free copy of this book via the author’s ARC team and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I still don't like Lucian's actor (he would have fit better as one of teh gods) and his overly obsessive need to save Melaney as opposed to assisting her on her journey. Overall, I Enjoyed teh Deigods Academy very much.

    I struggled with the story. I was so frustrated with the main female character, Mel. I loved her and connected with her character in the very first book but man...it’s like her character suddenly changed and it became a love triangle. Gah, I love Lucian and felt like he truly deserved better. The battle at the end was great!! The build up to it and the conclusion, letting the reader know where most of the characters are at and their headspace. The narrators truly did a fabulous job. It’s one of I struggled with the story.

It’s one of the reasons as to why I continued listening to the book. I would recommend this book if you enjoy demigods, greek mythology, and academy books. I would say that this is a upper YA book so for older teens. I received a free copy of this title in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Still not sure how I feel about this ending The first two books built this story up in the best way. I was expecting more from the ending because of that. I was expecting a great explosive end, and maybe it’s just my perception, but it felt a bit rushed and abrupt. I feel like this book could have been quite a bit longer and really given the characters an epic conclusion. The reality had me feeling quite sad, not in a horrible way, more like “Oh...” Overall, I loved Mel, Lucien, and all the char Still not sure how I feel about this ending The first two books built this story up in the best way.

I’m sorry their story is over, I wasn’t ready to be done with it.

    The best book in the series. Had me crying at the end. The characters were not who I thought they were. Some changed my mind about them by the end of the book. I love that Hades was a great guy. This book showed me a different side to Hades that I never thought I’d see or read. Mel really grew into her calling and did so much for everyone. Lucian grew into his calling and stood by Mel no matter what happened. The last chapter had me fighting back the tears and ended in a way that I didn’t see com The best book in the series.

    5 star adventure through mythology This series is fun and exciting. I love the mythology without all the trappings of over explaining. The writers gift us with a story that weaves in legends without getting caught up in the processes of explaining every little thing you could find in a google search. This keeps the story moving at a fast pace without becoming tedious and boring. If you like mythological fantasy fiction take this series out for a spin. Strong character development and bonds.

However, the ending really disappointed me it felt rushed and there seems to be a whole lot left unfinished to me. The whole thing just feels anticlimactic to me. Hades dead, really? So he's just gone? What happens to Melany? Why was she the key? What about everyone's powers, are they really gone or what? There's just so many things that don't add up or makes sense to me, so many questions left unanswered! This should not have been I enjoyed this series, the action, the romance and the mythology.

    This has been such an amazing series. Book 3 answers all the questions that have been brewing since the beginning and everything comes to a head. I love Mel and her ability to love even when it seems like all hope is lost. She may have darkness in her but that does not mean she is evil and I was happy she was able to prove that not only to others but to herself as well. Although heartbreaking at times, this book was remarkable. It was a great way to round out a fabulous series.

    Brilliant! A wonderful adventure filled YA trilogy for all ages. From the first book to the last it keeps you reading until you finish the whole book. I had to finish. And the plot and characters keep you thinking what's going to happen next long after you've finished. Book 3 had me guessing a lot and was a surprise twist near the end. But I should have figured it out! Elisa & Kiera did an awesome job on this trilogy. I hope they continue to write together more. Brilliant! A wonderful adventure filled YA trilogy for all ages.

    Amazing ending to this series. Love the writting and the storyline. The characters are great. In this book you will know who the characters really are. I got a changed of heart with Hades. Love the moments Melany has with Lucian and Hades. So many twist and turns that will keep you turning pages. What a surprise ending I did not expect. So much emotions. A wonderful adventure you will not want to miss.

    Demigods Academy:Year 3 by Elisa S Amore and Kiera Legend is a 5 star read. Melany finds out she is the key to ending the war but she’s still trying to figure out who will start the war and who she should trust. Melony’s Heart is torn between Lucian and Hades and she must choose between them which won’t be easy for her. I loved this book and was sort the story came to an end as I really enjoyed reading about the Academy and the people in it.

    This series was a downward spiral. I would recommend the first book only, but honestly not even that since it ends on a cliffhanger. The world is super interesting and the first book is very strong, but the second and third are so lazy? Idk, it seems like the authors just gave up on the story. The rest of it wasn't fleshed out, so it was very abrupt and left lots of loose ends. I wish they had given the story the time it deserved.
