Series Review: Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac by Caroline Peckham part 1

Title: Dark Fae/Savage Fae

Series: Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac

Author: Caroline Peckham

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 was the book I didn’t know I needed, just like Zodiac Academy! Totally pulled me out my slump.

And again, like Zodiac, I was totally hooked, stayed up late cramming in more words and devoured it!

Ryder, Gabriel, Dante, Leon are our Kings this time and Elise is on a quest to find out why and who killed her brother.

And what follows is hot, dark goodness!! Omg the tease of it all! It certainly wasn’t a chore trying to decide which King I loved the most. Sidenote – I have 2 faves but 1 I want to win (hint, he’s the Darkest of the lot and a basilisk!!!)

It finishes on sort of a cliffie, not a bad one but a lot more questions need to be answered!

Fans of Zodiac Academy will absolutely love this book set in the same word and will be totally hooked like I was!


I gorged this book just like the first one! Loved it!

Elise is still on the hunt to find out what happened to her brother and get revenge….but all sorts is happening.

The 4 guys are still all basically lusting after her but bargains have been made so there are a lot of blue whatsits situations going on!!! I did chortle a lot at some of the stuff in here!

I have one large question though. Who is Elise’s Dad? Is he going to turn up one day or is he actually just an after thought?

My life would just be made if Elise got with Ryder. I need it. Immediately.

And this is why I find myself getting book 3 so I can read the life out of it to get to this part!!!
