Publisher's Summary

What do a heartless Dragon Shifter, a cold-blooded Basilisk, an arrogant Lion Shifter, and a brooding, tattooed Harpy have in common…?

Me. 

Elise Callisto. Vampire. Angel of vengeance. And a girl on a mission to destroy one of them for murdering my brother. I just don’t know which one did it yet.

When I kicked the ass of a Werewolf who was high on a new and dangerous drug called Killblaze, his final words painted a dark reality for me. The King of Aurora Academy killed my brother. The trouble is, there’s four kings at that school, and each of them have motive and cutthroat natures.

Aurora Academy isn’t a place for the faint of heart. To put it lightly, my town is the asshole of Solaria where the dodgiest Fae in the kingdom reside. The school itself is divided by the two gangs who run this town, The Lunar Brotherhood and the Oscura Clan. And guess what? Two of the kings run the gangs at the school, their hatred for each other so fierce I hear a day doesn’t go by without blood being spilled in the halls.

I might be a petite, lilac-haired girl who looks like a fragile doll, but they haven’t been introduced to my fangs yet. And they don’t know why I’m really here. Or that I’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the Fae who took my flesh and blood from me. 

I don’t believe in fate, but I do know this…the King who killed my brother is a dead man walking. And I’m prepared to sacrifice my heart, body and soul to ensure I get my revenge.

This is a reverse harem series set in the world of Zodiac Academy four years before the Vega Twins were awakened. Expect some character cross-over, dark and hot romance, and a twisted murder mystery which will leave your head spinning.

Five Freaking Stars 👏👏👏

Yaaaaaaaaaasss! I was scared, guys. I was scared going into this. Why do you ask? Well. I read Kings of Quarantine before this - my first book from this author duo - and it was waaaaaaaay too much for me. It was brutal. Just like the title. Haha. Anyway - I knew they were good writers and people loved them so I wanted to give another series of theirs a shot. I am so freaking glad I did - this book was 🙌 epic. The FMC is so strong and totally worth the love of all these hot men. It’s academy but it definitely has its own little twist to it. Only the first book is on audio sadly - the narration was HOT. I really love Troy Duran’s voice - and the female narrator rocked it too! I couldn’t wait for the second book to be released so I’m reading the second one on kindle. I can’t wait to own all the audio books though! I love owning special ones I can re-listen to!

Great Story and Narration

This is the 1st audiobook in the Ruthless boys of the Zodiac series. The narration is duel. During male POV chapters we have a male narrator and during the FMC chapters we have a female narrator. Both do a great job at the voices of the charathers and make them distinctive. Very good duel narration.  

The story. Is so addictive. I lean more toward compentary but this story and genera by these authors have made me fall in love with a magical, deep, well develop world. This is a mystery an RH romance. In this world of Fae each Fae has an order from vampires to lion shifter. They all also have Elemental Magic based on their zodiac signs. It's a very interesting world of Magic based on zodiac. Elise is going to a good but rough Academy (college aged) to try to solve the mystery of her brother's Murder By befriending the leades in the school including rival gang members. We also flash back to her time at the brothers school before his death. The story is loading very well. The story is really addictive and compelling. With a well-balanced of emotion grief loss and humor and fantastic mystery and story. The authors are there also have other series based in the same world. Timeline wise this series takes place first. I can't tell you enough how picky I am about this genre and I've tried to find something else like this but I can't this is just such an amazing series and amazing world that they have created and amazing writers and it translates so well over audio.

Love this series

Absolutely loved this series. The female lead is strong and independent and her guys are hot. It has a little bit of everything and I found myself laughing out loud more times than I can count. The sex scenes are hot and the story line is great. Well worth the credits. Troy Duran is my favorite male narrator and Keira Stevens is my favorite female narrator. Having them together makes this story even better.

Ok

I wanna start off by saying the story is really well written. But there were a couple things I found frustrating throughout the story. I didn’t feel like we made any headway at all in finding out who’s good and who’s bad. This is supposed to be a reverse harem story and so far she’s only actually been with one guy… And constantly teases and turns down everyone else. Maybe that’s what I found frustrating. I was ready for her to move forward with the other guys. I am intrigued enough that I want to get book 2.

Highly recommend

Narration of this book was great. Troy did a superb job on narrating all of the men and giving each their own distinctive and distinguishable voice. Keira was excellent as always.


The story, universe and characters was just... just WOW! I feel like I went on a great adventure with Elise as she left home to attend Aurora Academy to find her brother's murderer and avenge his death. What surprised me the most is how much heart was at the core of the story and also how laugh-out-loud funny it is at times. Leon, the lazy Lion King, is hilarious and just a genius character.

The only con is that book 2 isn't on Audible and now I will go read it on Kindle Unlimited.

More please!!

This is book 1 of the Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac and sets up the world of Elise and the guys. Elise is on the hunt for her brother's killer and all signs point to one of the 4 kings of his school being the culprit. Only, things aren't so black and white once Elise arrives at school and gets to know them. I read this series before I listened and I love it! The narrators do a great job (Troy Duran has this gravelly voice that is HOT!) Can't wait for the next book to come out in audio.

Buyers regret

I bought this after listening to The Zodiac Academy which I really enjoyed. However, found this story line lacking, predictable and honestly just really boring.

Dissappointed.

I have been waiting to start this series until all the books were on audible. I stayed up half the night listening, I hope the 5th book is available by the time I finish the fourth. This is a great series!!

Fantastic world!

Another fantastic series in the Solaris world. I love this world so much. I am instantly pulled in and never want to leave. Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti write such great characters you can't help but think about even when you are not reading or listening to them. I love getting Garreth's POV even though it makes me sad because he died. He is a really likeable character that loves his sister so much. So much mystery in this story i cant waitbto continue on to the next audible. I loved Troy Duran as the narrator for the guys. He made each voice so different that fit perfectly for each of the guys! Keira Stevens is an amazing narrator. She brought Elisa to life so well.

Narrator

Loved the male narrator voice, but the female voice didn’t match the character for me. She seemed too young (and maybe Midwestern??) against the mature gravely voice of the male. Good story, I’m a fan of these authors.

Fantastic Characters

I'm a huge fan of this series. Immersive world, strong complex characters, why choose and hot steam. Whats not to love?! Then I found it on audible and just had to listen.

OMG these narrators, between them they manage to bring it all to life in a whole new way. To voice so many characters between the two of them and get the so right is incredible and they do a fantastic job of setting the tone all the way through <3

loved this

I'm normally not interested in school themed books but this book kept popping up on my feed to read and I'm so glad I took the chance and purchased it. It had me laughing out loud and kept me captivated all the way through (hasn't happened for a while). The characters are great, I absolutely love Elise, and the narrators were amazing.
Off to listening to book 2 :)

Predictable and boring

didn't finish it. The girl is a ho, thinks she's better then everyone because she's an emo purple hair girl with family issues. Prick teases all the dimwitted heir that keeps trying to pursue her.

AMAZING

This was an amazing audiobook. Both narrators were amazing and definitely helped bring the characters to life even more. I was worried I might lose interest after a while but was pleasantly surprised to find that I was engaged in the storyline the entire time. So much so that I was sitting on the edge of my seat until the freaking cliffhanger. Urgh!! While the story doesn't end in the middle of the scene, it leaves you with sooo many questions. Having said that, I would still recommend this book to anyone who has read the blurb and thought they might like it. It was amazing and definitely left me glad about my decision. I hope you find you love it just as much as I did. Enjoy!
