About King of Ruin:

They say the fae used to take the most beautiful maidens and make them their brides.

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.

EXCERPT:

Someone walked in front of her cell, quiet as a shadow.

A man, this time. He hadn’t been among the five who’d come for her. She would have remembered him.

Her abductors were stunning. This man…was something else. The smile, the bright eyes, the delicious mouth. He made her want to be his with one glance. Magnetic. That was the word for it. His very presence was a weapon.

Mel took a step back.

“Chatty,” he said, voice soft and velvety, like dark chocolate sauce on top of a strawberry.

He smirked. Another weapon, and he honed it like a master who knew just what sort of effect he had on women.

“Lessara wants your beating heart seasoned with bluebells and golden apples.”

“Gross. Raw meat without salt?” Mel always had a smartass retort at the ready. Right now, she half wished she could take it back when the boss’s smile broadened.

“I hear you killed Coder. A brute and an idiot, but he was skilled enough. How?”

He was demanding an answer. Demanding she show her neck to the wolf and reveal all her secrets.

“Come here. I’ll show you.” Now she was really bluffing. With no water in sight, she had no hope of using her magic against him. As for physical combat, she could tell—she just knew—he’d make a chew toy of her and spit her out.

“Sassy,” he said. “I like sassy.”

She wondered if he meant he liked to eat sassy.

“I denied Lessara’s request, for now. I am bored, and I see that you may entertain me well enough for a time. So you get to keep your neck on those pretty little shoulders, as long as you’re fun. How does that sound?”

She hated the way he was looking at her. Like she was a helpless rat and he, a playful cat. “Sounds like you’re a megalomaniac deluded enough to think that I won’t slit your throat and get back home before my next book club meeting.”

Again, he laughed. “That might prove to be rather difficult.”

On that note, the man—the Aos Si—walked away, toward the light.

She glared until he was out of her line of sight, but a movement to her right caught her attention. The wall opposite the door was moving. A panel slid away, giving her a window to the outside. There still was a transparent, vibrating energy wall between the outside and here, but she could see out now.

Her jaw fell open.

She’d been right. They were in a transport.

A transport advancing toward a flat land set on a cascade of golden fire. A strange world with seven circles of land and right at its center, a large blue tree with white leaves and flowers red as blood.

In the distance, she could see a large reddish-brown planet with black spots like a Dalmatian’s. It had four rings similar to Saturn’s around it.

That planet, she knew. She’d seen illustrations of it, and heard about it in her tutelage, many moons ago.

Unless she was much mistaken, the planet was Tartarus. And as for the world they were approaching at high speed…

Mel gulped. “Old man?”

“Aye.”

“Tell me this isn’t what I think it is. Tell me we aren’t in Sidhe.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I warned you I could not protect you.” The boy winced as she bent forward to his ear. “So, stay close and you may just survive.”

Caim paused. He’d been mistaken. This wasn’t weakness. This wasn’t naivety. She was simply certain, absolutely certain, that she was in no danger here.

That she’d made it five minutes without any weapon had surprised him. Now, it didn’t.

Tired and spent as she was, her every move was fluid and precise. A Gaian darkling came from the side with a blade; she tilted her pelvis forward, and the blade hit air. She reached for the attacker’s hand and pushed it back to his skull, all the while avoiding another hit on her left shoulder.

Water.

She moved like water.

If she’d had a sword in her hand, Caim knew she could have made short work of all the prisoners, and most of the lords, no doubt. But she seemed content to let them murder each other, simply defending herself—and the boy holding on to her like the lifeline she was.

His lips parted and a delighted laugh escaped him. He laughed like a child, with enchantment, astounding himself and anyone who was paying attention to him.

She didn’t spare the boy another glance, but she let him stick to her. Grace and indifference. She was cruel. Cruel, untouchable, and beautiful.

They were supposed to watch slaves butcher each other. Instead, they were graced with a dance worthy of a fairy queen.

Exclusive Excerpt:

There was a young boy among the prisoners. Younger than Dreron, by far. A teenager. He was trembling like a leaf. Whatever Alrik had planned, the boy would not last a minute.

“You may claim whatever weapon you may steal or exhort from any of us. Spill the blood of your peers, fertilize our forest with their remains. The last three standing will have earned their freedom.”

The bloodbath started.

None of the darklings hesitated, begging for swords that the Ironers were more than happy to provide, eager to see them murder each other.

Some among the prisoners were prey, and others, hunters. The boy Caim had noticed, because of his youth, fell in the first lot.

The smell of blood and the clash of blade against blade awoke something dark inside him, making him want to join in. This was what they were: wildness.

But the boy wasn’t fair game. Destroying youth was where he drew the line. His eyes followed his progression. He would not enjoy seeing him die, but if he spoke up against it now, he would be undermining the authority of a lord of Iron, one likely to become regent, on their land.

The boy stumbled over his feet, missing a blade by an inch. He crawled away, hands around his head, crying, trying to get out of the massacre.

He hit a bare leg. Caim lifted his gaze to the would-be murderer of the child.

It was a woman, and she had no weapon in hand.

Caim watched her bend over, extending her hand to the boy, whose eyes widened.

He took it, carefully. She pulled him up to his feet.

The woman was emaciated, with dark circles under her eyes. Yet, she was beautiful. Striking. Memorable. Among a crowd of fae ladies in silks, she stood out in her rags. Her golden skin and dark hair. Her eyes.

Her voice.

It was but a whisper.

“I warned you I could not protect you,” she told the boy, letting go of his hand. “So stay close.”

That she’d survived five minutes without any weapon had surprised him. Now, it didn’t.

Tired and spent as she was, her every move was fluid and precise. A Gaian darkling came from the side with a blade; she tilted her pelvis forward, and the blade hit air. She reached for the attacker’s hand and pushed it back into his skull, all the while avoiding another hit on her left shoulder.

Water.

She moved like water.
