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!

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.

WOW! WHAT A GREAT START TO A NEW SERIES

What are great start to the series. Caroline and Susanne always amaze me with their world building and character development. Elise is a bada** babe who I have a girl crush on! Lets not forget about these four sexy men they are complete fire! These two authors have such a way with words and their detailed writing of the world they are building is amazing. There is so many secrets that we still need to discover and I can't wait until we dive deeper. You get all the feels, all the drama and all the mystery in this one. If you loved the Zodiac Series then you will love this one as well.... Bring on book 2!!! I am so excited.

Must Listen Series!

The voice performance by Keira Stevens and Troy Duran is absolutely amazing! A special shout out to Troy’s female voice, it is so spectacular! His voice in general is sexy, holy hotness Batman! This is a wonderful audiobook, definitely worth it!

Elise’s brother Gareth was murdered, and nobody knows who did it or really cares. Elise gets a lead that the King of Aurora Academy was responsible. The problem is that there are 4 of them. Now Elise needs to enroll at Aurora and figure out what happened to her brother.

I absolutely love this book and with the final book in the series coming out on March 31st, this is the perfect time to start. This is a bully/enemies to lovers slow-ish burn revers harem. I love that you get chapters from everyone’s POV, even Gareth, depicting the events leading up to his death.

Absolutely Elise and her boys

I Dark Fae on my kindle and was excited when it came out on Audio. Something about having the book read to you, by amazing voice actors, makes you feel all that more entranced!

Without a doubt, Caroline and Susanne have crafted another impeccable series in Solaria, with Ruthless Boys!

Elise is a badass FMC. She’s fierce and thorough in her search for her brothers killer. The relationships she gathers along the way will make you swoon and curse, in unison.

The guys in this book are all delicious. Leon and his adorable self is my favorite, thus far. Those they’re all extremely different in personality, their need for Elise is a common thread that binds them.

I can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series, on audio!

5 stars for both the story and the performance!

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.

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

I loved the books - but the audios ..

Wow! I honestly love the book of this series, but having these voices to go with it? Completes everything. If you haven’t already given these books a go and prefer audiobooks then definitely go download these. The voice for Elise is even better than I imagined. I can’t wait for the other books.

These books are truly amazing. If you’re a fan of the Zodiac Academy series you will love these. This series is like the dirtier, grittier version of ZA. None of these Fae were born with a silver spoon and they all have issues that you’re dying to get to the bottom of. This book introduces Elise - a young female vampire who is hurt and broken, but with it she is strong and has brilliant depth. Leon, Dante, Ryder and Gabriel are all interested in the new girl. One has seen things he wish he could change and they’re all feeling new things towards the new comer. I can’t wait to see where this series go next because I’m hooked on these like Killblaze

Every bit as good as I hoped

This was my first audio book - I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it or not. Honestly I think I still prefer actually reading BUT when I still have to do life things this is an amazing option. The readers really bring the characters to life.

I loved reading Dark Fae last year and the audio version was every bit as good.
Plot is twisty and keeps you in suspense.

Elise is a complete badass, you’ll love her from the very beginning and as you get to know the boys you’ll have your own favourite, there is some for everyone no matter your type - bright, smouldering, dark and aloof 😜 it ends with you desperate for book 2

I love the world of solaria the ladies have created - you should definitely explore the other series - zodiac academy and Darkmore Penitentiary 💕
