The King will fall.

While I continue my hunt for the Fae who killed my brother, I have to try to keep my heart away from the vicious boys who could be responsible for his death.

Urban Fantasy

Reverse Harem

Vicious Fae by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti is the third book in their Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac series, and begins right where we left off in the last book. No closer to the answers regarding her brothers murder, Elise tries to keep herself from falling in love with her suspects, while keeping them close for information. As her investigation gets more intense, and she gets closer to the information she needs, she and the kings are brought to Zodiac Academy for a week long student exchange. Zodiac Academy has some answers though, and as she gets closer to the truth, she gets closer to her kings.

Hey, this one was better! I mean, don't get me wrong - this book is seriously still too heavy on the romance/sex. And this is coming from me - a romance/sexy times obsessed book nerd. And when I say too much ... it's too much. I get there is four guys, and they all need equal time, but isn't there a murder to solve. I kinda felt that Gabriel was more focused on getting to the truth than Elise. Too much peen in the way. And that's not judging. This is my first reverse harem, and I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. I just wish that we got more story with substance in regards to Elise. Most of this book she is flirting or fucking, and I was left wondering what happened to the Elise at the beginning of the series. The one who was hell bent on the truth, and more focused. I hate that these books are ALL relationship building and sex, until the end, when the authors need to put some actual plot in there to sustain the story. I was hoping by the third book, we would be moving in the right direction. We are starting to get somewhere though. Especially now that Elise has finally admitted to herself that the kings, while guilty of a lot of things, didn't kill her brother, and she has them backing her up.

Am I going to continue the series? Of course. Zodiac Academy made me love this world, and I'm not hating this series. I just wish it was more. That cliffhanger at the end though, broke me. Like, for the first time in this series, I was crying. What the heck? What is going on? Must ... continue ... series ... damn ... you ... Caroline Peckham ... and ... Susanne Valenti.
