It was imaginative with great world building and really set the stage ready for this series future growth. Its told in dual POV Mel (Melpomene) and Caim both seemed really well-developed characters with interesting personas. Mel herself is supposedly a muse with a muddy pedigree descended down from immortal gods. Caim is an Unseelie who has managed to acquire the silver throne. When these two immortal destinies cross there paths become entangled. So this is very much slow burn in regards to our central pair and any romance this really does concentrate on selling you this world and its story. This is also a totally unique take on the whole fae concept with spaceships and Tartarus I really did love this and it made this just so distinct and original. Adored the wicked dispositions and cruel intentions of those in this land of monsters and I am ever so interested in seeing where this series is going next as this really did manage to grasp my attention. Lastly, we get some long-awaited action and a small cliffhanger of a finale and as I said earlier the finish for me did feel a tad abrupt and rushed and I also would have liked some prior build up to the long-awaited action as it just seemed to come out of nowhere. Only small niggles and as I have said all else I adored. I will most certainly be reading the next in this series how could I not. This was one I really enjoyed a thumbs up from my corner. I voluntary reviewed a copy of King of Ruin. Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm https://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/ www.beckiebookworm.com

    Criticising a May Sage book hurts me, really it does. Cos I love lovvveeee her books and her writing style and her heroines. They are not stupid, they are not insanely or childishly bold, they have a spine and they are not waiting around for a man to rescue them. And Mel is a good heroine. Caim is a decent hero. So far so good. What went wrong with this book IMHO is their chemistry buildup and the plot itself. Its not at all clear why things are the way they are.

So far so good. What went wrong with this book IMHO is their chemistry buildup and the plot itself. Its not at all clear why things are the way they are. The story was doing well and good till Caim rescues Mel. May builds a vivid cruelly beautiful world of Sidhe with beauty and death side by side. Then suddenly it switches to boring. All Mel does in Caim's world is read books. No seriously, thats all she does. There are not even 'cat' fights between her and other fae ladies who are aspiring for Caim's bed, though Caim warns her to expect this. She meets none except a tailor and a steward. And then suddenly out of nowhere we have a crazy traitor who tries to kill Caim. His actions are incomprehensible. You would expect a guy like Rhedrek who is a military commando to have more sense than attack Caim after suspiciously luring him in the presence of a witness (Mel). If I am planning to do in a guy, I'd make sure I approach him when he is alone. Not when he is with a woman I am suspicious about. And the worst part is the sudden intimacy and sex. Its like May suddenly realized, 'Oh my god, I reached the end of the story, I am so tired to do anything more, these guys have really no chemistry so far so at least let me make them have sex so you know.. something is better than nothing!" It all feels rushed, weird, unexplained, out of the blue. Other than Caim and Mel sitting together to read books, they have really had not much interactions or warm moments to validate Mel's actions. Overall - not May's best.

I love how distinctly you depict each of your paranormal & fantasy species, and your fae did not disappoint. I can’t wait for this sequel! Man!

    My exact word for word response when I finished this book was, "Ah, damn it, I need book two." It's a good thing I don't mind cliffhangers at all. King of Ruin was a pretty cool and very *different* fae romance. One that blends fantasy and sci-fi together in a very unique way that totally works. Since this is the first book in a series, most of the book was spent acquainting the reader with the world building while the plot and romance was pretty slow to pick up. But I didn't mind it at all because My exact word for word response when I finished this book was, "Ah, damn it, I need book two." It's a good thing I don't mind cliffhangers at all. King of Ruin was a pretty cool and very *different* fae romance. One that blends fantasy and sci-fi together in a very unique way that totally works. Since this is the first book in a series, most of the book was spent acquainting the reader with the world building while the plot and romance was pretty slow to pick up. But I didn't mind it at all because my mythological-obsessed side appreciated the heck out of the details the author painstakingly chose to include to make this magical world as real as possible. So in this universe, the old gods and titans have banished the fae to an artificial moon circling a planet called Tartarus, where the gods now live. There is some leeway. The fae can leave their home and visit Earth for a year at a time, but the longer they stay, the weaker they become. The "moon" realm where the fae now live is called Sidhe and it is made up of seven kingdoms that were once united under the rule of a Queen. However, since the Queen's long-ago disappearance, the seven kingdoms of Sidhe have been ruled by seven Lords. That is until the Lords are murdered at a conclave. Five of the seven had heirs, so no problem there. But the Silver Circle and the Iron Circle - enemy kingdoms that have been at war for a hundred years - do not. The Silver Circle chooses their new leader by holding a tournament and our hero, Caim, wins. Caim is a ruthless male fae with only one thing on his mind: Breaking the curse that keeps the fae on Sidhe. The Iron Circle, meanwhile, decides to round up any moral heirs their late leader might've had and slaughter them so that they may be free to vote on a Lord of their choosing (The ex-Iron Lord had a weakness for mortal women and they have a weird law that prohibits them from voting on an alternative ruler if one exists anywhere in the universe). Enter our heroine, Melpomene, aka Mel. Mel is a young goddess who was orphaned to a group of Muses, demigods, and other half-breeds on modern-day Earth. She was raised as a Muse, having no clue whatsoever as to her true parents or linage, and finds herself dissatisfied and bored with the life she leads. Until one day the Iron soldiers abduct her and take her to Sidhe. After making sure that Mel has no relation to their deceased leader, Mel is given the chance to earn her freedom by fighting for her life in a gladiator-style fight to death with the other captives. Spoiler alter, she wins. BUT, earning her freedom doesn't change the fact she's completely lost and alone on an alien planet. Lucky for her, someone in the audience has taken an interest in Mel. It's Caim. He sees a use for Mel. The crown has made him extremely busy, putting a strain on his original "get off of Sidhe" agenda - in addition to being expected to father heirs of his own. So he offers Mel room & board in addition to a payed job that would secure her passage back to Earth. The job is simple enough. She is to conduct research on the curse that keeps the fae on Sidhe for Caim while posing as his fake mistress. Mel agrees -- Anything to avoid the torture of the Iron Circle and find a way back home. But as the weeks grow into months, Mel is surprised to discover how much she likes living in Sidhe, how *right* it feels, and how much she admires Caim. That would be fine and dandy, except the man who killed the original seven Lords has decided to reveal himself, and he's not nearly finished wreaking havoc on their world. King of Ruin was a very refreshing and enjoyable read for a few reasons. 1) It's written in third person, which, I don't know about you guys, but it seems like every PNR I read lately is written in first. So it was nice to see a third person narrative for a change. 2) The romance builds VERY slowly. Caim obviously was attracted to Mel right away but not in a supercharged sexed up way that is common in PNR. Mel, on the other hand, took about 2/3 of the book to realize she had a crush on Caim. Now for me, this is a #WIN because I'm not a fan of instant love. I like that Mel and Caim were given the time to really to get to know each other BEFORE they wanted to rip each others clothes off (makes it more satisfying when they finally DID. lol) 3) Have I mentioned the world building? It was a really neat blend of mythology and magic with a healthy dose of sci-fi level technology mixed in. It was so different, yet it worked together seamlessly. 4) The characters are very well developed and layered. Caim and Mel each have a past and you can tell we only scratched the surface of those pasts with this first book. But besides that, Caim and Mel acted like PEOPLE. Their actions and thought processes made sense. Nothing was done just for the sake of it. Caim is an alpha, but definitely *not* your typical alpha-A-hole. He didn't need to f*ck Mel silly or act like a dick or be overly protective -*cough*possessive*cough* - Rather, he was just the strong silent thoughtful type. And Mel, who definitely kicked a lot of ass, did so in a strictly "self defense life or death back against the wall" way. She was not "the chosen one" or any of that crap. She was not naive either. She was a believable woman with a healthy sense of suspicion and the actual training to backup her skill set. Basically, I'd love to be friends with Mel. Overall, I enjoyed it. If you like PNR but are a little bored with the usual tropes, King of Ruin is the book for you. Now I'm off to look up book two... ************* Reviewed on behalf of ILOVEVAMPIRENOVELS.COM Video review on YouTube coming soon.

    Not a love story This books focal point is folklore and not romance. Just an FYI for those seeking a typical romance novel because you will be disappointed at the lack of engaging connection and chemistry between the main characters.

    Very interesting This is a novel that takes a woman, several centuries old, and transports her to the fantastical and dangerous land of Sidhe... another planet. It’s part technological, part fantasy and all fae in an adventure that seems to be about discovering who the girl really is. Pros: - Great FMC! - Interesting world building. - Flows well. Cons: - Little easy to figure out what she is.

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!

    As always, May Sage delivers. This new world of hers is absolutely absorbing; I never wanted it to end. The only qualm I have with it is that the last page was like a whiplash then...nothing. Just 'The End'. A dawning revelation then...BAM! The. End. I'm hoping the 2nd book would be out soon because I don't know if I'll be able to stay sane while waiting months long for it. Other than that, everything was a treat to read. Meli and Caim are already favorites of yours truly. I cannot wait to read As always, May Sage delivers.

Other than that, everything was a treat to read. Meli and Caim are already favorites of yours truly. I cannot wait to read more. Not gonna lie...I miss the non-cliffhanger/ mini-cliffhanger, with a splash of a complete HEA, days. Not May Sage's problem though 😂. Edit: May Sage posted on her facebook page about the word 'cliffhanger' and what it entails. Also, how it relates to her work. And she's right. A cliffhanger is the book ending just when the action is getting interesting. Just like the word (look it up if you're still a bit confused :) ). The reason I say non-cliffhanger/ mini-cliffhanger up there is because for me, just when I want more; the book ends. They might as well have been hanging off a cliff. A lovey dovey cliff, that is. And for a romance addict like me; who is also suffering a case of mild OCD when it comes to books (look, the story's gotta have some kind of reassuring HEA, okay. The heroine coming to terms with her choices; the hero realising his idiocy; the world burning and the H/h choosing to fight the fire instead of firing each other up. You know. Little tidy ending bows like that. Instead, somehow May Sage's perfectly fine ending for her Book 1 of 3 left me shaking my head and flipping the page like maybe, my book didn't fully download or something LOL. Honestly, for those wanting to pick this book up, go ahead! It's definitely a good read. And me complaining about the ending? I applaud May Sage for that. Because somehow she gave me a tank of water to drink then left me thirsty again by the end anyway ehehehehe. So please, if you find yourself eyeing this book with mistrust; don't. It's May Sage. She always delivers. Get it. Enjoy it. Push it to the back of your mind and hopefully forget about it for a couple of months. Then BAM! enjoy the second one when it releases. This has been tried & proven true by yours truly LOL. Hope you enjoy! I'm off to find a distraction from the wait! Adios & Happy Reading, folks! 😃 This was a good read. Totally. Xx

This showed great promise to be an amazing story at the first half and with its ideas.

Nobody was stupid, all the characters had their agendas and agency. The start was going great, the world was amazing and interesting, the dynamic of characters was working, However, there was little build up happening after the middle of the book. I felt like there must have been scenes and build up that was just edited out. At times it felt chopped and cut off, like we are missing an important growth piece in the story between characters. Somehow the grains of complexity that were put in didn't get enough sun to grow and entwine as they should in a story. Most characters felt like they were there to fulfill one purpose, and that is so the main characters aren't speaking to themselves or reading a book, just tools. To me a great story is when I care about the side characters too. What I mean is if you introduce a couple of characters like a nemesis or close friends/comrades in a situation, have more scenes with them beyond the initial ones. Break them apart ok, but then reunite them for something meaningful for the story to develop, or a meaningful conversation or to throw us off even. Have us learn what they are all about beyond their station. The second half was rushed. Great ideas, just not woven enough or developed enough. It could have been great, it still could be. PS: cover.. I can't even why why I am sure you can do better. I know sometimes authors don't have a choice though.

The main character Mel is an immortal raised to be a muse. However, she does not know who her parents are and has always felt adrift from the rest of her clan. She left and ended up owning a book/potion store in Paris. She has an unchallenging existence, with the exception of an inability to cook, until she is kidnapped and taken to another world. I love Mel, as she is strong, intelligent, curious and compassionate. She faces adversity with courage and determination. When we are introduced to Caim we are convinced he is not a good guy, but he is very interesting and their interactions create tension and intrigue. Caim’s flaws are what make him fascinating and bring his character to life in a very different world to the one we inhabit. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

There's a few different story lines going on here, they mesh perfect and there's a lot to still discover, along with finding out who Mel really is, other than an immortal. You will love Mel, she's a great character. Betrayal is the Faes constant companion and revenge is coming. Author weaves a wicked tale of Gods and Titans. I will anxiously be on the look out for next in this series.

    Strong heroine, great world building I admit, I was at an impasse and looking for anything to read that was well written and indie. I unexpectedly found it with King of Ruin. Thank you, May Sage. The heroine, Mel, comes across at first as mild mannered and peace loving. Just wait. Thrust into an untenable situation in a foreign environment, she begins to shine and overcome. Slight romantic suspense is built up right til the end. The hero, if you will, is Caim.

I didn't want to like him and I'm still ambivalent until he can prove to me he's worthy. But he played a crucial role in developing Mel's character and potential. I enjoyed this very much and searched for the next book in the series, Queen of Chaos. Alas, not out yet. Hopefully soon.

    Want More So, I was definitely looking forward to this and I enjoyed it and I want more of Mel's story for certain. I'm very much hoping the sequel will continue to follow her and Caim as there is still much to discover about just who and what Mel really is. My main issue is that the big revelation and only sex scene happen at the very end of the book. It actually reminded me a lot of After Darkness Falls that way. Especially since while the characters are obviously drawn to each other, there's no Want More So, I was definitely looking forward to this and I enjoyed it and I want more of Mel's story for certain.

Still, I do want to know what comes next.

    King of Ruin is another 10 This book is another amazing story from May Sage. It wonderfully weaves the story of Mel and Cain. The background character development is perfect to give the reader a sense of the essence of who they are and their role in the story. I just love the way Ms. Sage uses her vivid imagination to create a world that is so believable, I want to go there, and believe it is almost possible.

Please more Lords of Sidhe!

    Lords of Sidhe I'm looking for this whole trilogy,this book was off the hook! These characters and the drama was a little slow going at first ,but it was worth hanging in there. There's a lot of information the author has to provide. A lot off background,but I can't wait to read the next book's. There is A lot going on now. This author is rather new for me,but she is an amazing writer.How she comes up with these worlds and magic ect. Is astounding. Makes you really stretch your imagination and fa Lords of Sidhe I'm looking for this whole trilogy,this book was off the hook!

    Omg loved it. 💘 I loved this read. It wasn't fast paced or rushed but it wasn't slow and dragging, the author managed to find a happy medium. I loved both main characters their not immature or falling head over heels in love with each other after just meeting. Their both very capable people who know how to look after themselves. The world the author has built is amazing and I can't wait to read more. So excited for this series and where it's going . I would highly recommend this read I'm off to s Omg loved it. 💘 I loved this read. It wasn't fast paced or rushed but it wasn't slow and dragging, the author managed to find a happy medium.

    Yes!!!!! Almost speechless. I just finished this amazingly awesome book and I immediately want to read it again. I have loved every book I have ever read by May Sage but this one tops them all. So unbelievable happy that it did not end on a cliffhanger. Will be impatiently waiting for the next book but enjoying whichever books this amazing author decides to put out until then. Amazing!!!!

    Great World Building Thus particular series from May Sage is all about world building. A little slow in the telling, but rich in the details. The main characters had very separate trajectories for most of the book and I was starting to get frustrated because there wasn’t any connection. Towards the last third of the book is when things really begin to take off. I am excited for the next volume in the series now that we know what Mel is and the story ended on a cliffhanger.

    I’m so tempted to give it 5 stars! Where to start with this review??? Well how about why I did t give it 5 stars? The beginning was slow and boring but I understand we needed the info and the plot to be laid out. I almost didn’t finish the book, the beginning was that hard to get through but I am sooo very glad I stuck it out. I haven’t even looked to see if there’s a sequel, there better frickin be!

    I absolutely loved this book, until the very end, when it suddenly was rushed. I definitely want more in this series as the characters are compelling, especially Mel's blend of modern woman and fantasy. I love the blend of technology and faery. This book should have been twice as long, bc I feel like it got to the middle of their story, and I want just as much in the courtship and falling in love part.

    Great world building, intrigue The male and female lead characters were very likeable. I found myself really caring about them and in the hero's case, his cause. The pacing was very good; the supporting were interesting also - loved The Tailor. The villains are truly awful. Looking forward to their downfall. I really liked that there was a courtship between the hero and heroine even if they weren't aware of it. Can't wait for the next book!
