There’s more to my brother’s murder than I realised…

Shadows in the halls, mysteries lurking around every corner.

Whoever killed him is covering their tracks well.

And now I’m walking a dangerous line between getting close to the four kings for information and wanting to crawl deeper under their skin for my own desires.

I can’t trust anyone.

I can’t let my guard down.

And I must keep the urges of my body separate from my heart.

But I’m starting to break all of my own rules.

I just hope I’m not falling for my brother’s killer.

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.


This was my favorite installment of the Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac so far. It had the perfect seamless mix of action, story development, filler and relationship building which gives it an edge over the two previous books.

The authors have completely done it again. They are absolutely amazing with their writing. They write in a way that just captures you from the very first page and doesn’t spit you out until well… never. You are still so invested even when it is over. They have created such an amazing world with characters you fall in love with instantly.

Elise continues to investigate her brothers death. The growth of the characters as individuals and in their various inter-connecting ways is so well done it shows how great these authors are in their craft.

And yes, of course the cliffhanger, these two authors definitely know how to keep their readers hanging in suspense for the next book! This book is absolutely fantastic, exciting, thrilling, terrifying, and addicting. It will leave you wanting more! The characters are complex and the storyline is great!

I can’t wait for the next book, Broken Fae!😍

 I highly recommend it!
