Kings of Ruin by May Sage is an Adult Paranormal Romance of fae, power, and survival.
*This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
“They say the fae used to take the most beautiful maidens and make them their brides.
What they do with them is much worse.
After the seven lords of Sidhe are massacred in one day, the thrones of the fae realm pass down to their heirs.
The Iron Circle remains leaderless, as its true lord lives in another world.
The nobles of the realm will find the heir, and they will destroy him.
West, in the Silver Circle, a new lord has taken the throne.
A warrior who never hesitates to crush ants for the good of the world.
A man whose rule will change the fate of their realms.
Melpomene has never known where she came from, and after centuries, she’s stopped caring.
Until the fae take her, dragging her to a land where bloodlines and power is everything.
To survive, she needs to embrace the monster buried inside.”
If you love paranormal creatures, this book is definitely for you! From witches to fae to shape shifters, there are so many races found throughout the realms.
The main female character is a bookseller on Earth who is done trying to find out where she comes from. She has secret ties with the paranormal world, but decides to stay away from her past.
But then a group of men from her realm come to capture her and bring her back to her true home. Tortured and lost, she comes to find herself thrown into the world of dark Fae. Their world is in chaos when a meeting of the Lords ended in massacre.
Now, she has to face her captor and the realm she swore to forget.
The world building is extensive and well-written. There is potential for so much more and the ending leaves a hint of unanswered questions.
I only wish there was more romance. We can tell that there is a connection between the powerful Fae Lord and the minor Goddess, but their connection is strung out until the very end. I was hoping this book would have more steamy scenes, but maybe we will see this is the sequel?
Overall, this was a well-written paranormal story. There are dark features which I love to read in books. I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars. The character development works wonders with the plot through all the imaginative and creative writing.
I can’t wait to see what comes next!
