Reign to Ruin is book four in this addictive Omegaverse series.
This particular instalment centres on Alpha King Malloron of Eiros and the Omega Amara a spy masquerading as a servant within the royal castle.
My first experience with this author but definitely won't be my last as this was such fantastically engrossing stuff.
So after Amara is discovered by the king red-handed the two strike a bargain though somewhat reluctantly on Amari's behalf and as a result, Amara finds herself at the mercy of n

So far, this is actually my favorite book in the entire Myth of Omega series. I like Malloron and Amara. I found the magic elements more engaging, and Malloron. Also Malloron. If you're like me, and found the Crave books a bit slow, imo it's worth reading them to get to this book.

I know the first 3 books in the Myth of Omega trilogy are beloved by many...but I think I prefer Reign to Ruin because it had the morally ambiguous anti-hero that I like reading about. Malloron is a darker characte

An intriguing and twisty story with some very dark undertones

This is my second read through of the book and I definitely enjoyed it better this time - some of that may well be because I've now read book 3 (I'd somehow missed that out last time and only read books 1 and 2). Yes judge me as you want - I totally deserve it 😄.

For a chunk of this story Malloron didn't appear to be quite as bad as the very unpleasant character portrayed in the first series of books. Strangely he started off as not too

4 Stars!
H - He's deliciously dark, sexy, rich, powerful, a king, huge is size, strong (said to be the strongest with magic), OTT controlling, possessive and would totally be j/p if given the opportunity. (He's the King so there weren't many opportunities for j/p scenes.) He's also an alpha anti-H.

Sex - Very steamy with bondage. (She's almost always restrained during sex.)

Unapologetic pervert meet fiery Omega.

I've been waiting for King Malloron's story since his introduction in the previous books. When Emperor Drocco use brute strength as an Alpha, King Malloron use silver tongue and his powerful Talent. He is know as the most manipulative leader in the lands. As a true Visant royal blood who create Talent/magic. But there's so many corruptions happened in Western Lands. It is also known for the slavery.

Amara and other Omegas has been in King Malloron's
Using the Talent (the ability to manipulate magic) is as natural as breathing for King Malloron as his family created it but it comes at a cost. A cost that requires periodic compensation. With the clock ticking, Malloron needs to focus on lining up all the the components needed to pay or risk forfeiting his family's very heritage.

Returning to the western lands of Eiros after an extended absence helping Emperor Drocco, Malloron is emotional over the fact that Omegas have been hiding right under
Spoilers ahead, 3.5 not quite 4 but bumped up nonetheless

Huge spoilers as I'm feeling lazy so I'm reviewing all 3 books here

Well I warned you......

So we get the story of King Malloran, king of the depraved Western lands who kidnapped the h of book 1 because he desperately needed an Omega. Drocco shared that there are Omega's in his land and he finally finds one among his servants. Malloran offers her a deal to get what he wants. Lots of twists and turns to their HEA

I really liked this book and how the author continued this series.

When I heard King Malloron was the main anti-hero:


If you liked the first 3 books of this series you'll love this book. Especially if the first taste of King Malloron in the previous books weren't enough.

Zoey Ellis, I am hugely impressed with this book. I actually thought this book would be below the original 3 books, but... I am happy to type this book was in my hands the entire day it came out. I couldn't put it down for more th

Reign to Ruin continues in the same Omegaverse as the Myth of Omega series, but follows different characters. It can possibly be read as a standalone, but it’s probably easier to understand if you read the MoM series first.

The story starts out slow, but the dynamic between Malloron and Amara is intriguing, gaining momentum for the story and making it difficult to put down.

In the previous MoM books, King Malloron learns that there are Omega spies within his castle, but he doesn’t know why they’re

I want to make it clear right away that this was a case of it's not you, it's me.

I really wanted to like this one; there aren't enough MF Omegaverse stories out there, and the first couple of books in this series were pretty good. I just somehow couldn't get into Reign to Ruin. Amara and Malloron didn't feel like real people to me, and the first 50 pages or so were a deep struggle. Things did pick up after a while, but it felt far too easy to put the book down and tell myself I'd return to it i

I'm glad that I didn't give up on these books, they're shot after all. The last one was pretty awful what with the magical history lessons and stupid mothers but this one shows great potential. It still has it's kind of boring magic parts but it's a spy game for the most part.
A little bit disappointing. More sex than the actual story. A disappointing, supposedly strong heroine. Not really sure what was the point of the book, read more like a filler, hopefully the next one will be better.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! Cliffies!!! Zoey Ellis writes those types of cliffhangers you love to hate and you hate to love. Always leaving the book off with so much suspense and excitement for the next book!
King Malloroon seems like a much lesser Alpha than Drocco was at first. Reign to Ruin is the first book about him and Amara. After getting to read and learn about him in this book, he is most definitely not a lesser Alpha than Drocco. He ju

Another great installment in the Myth of the Omega series. I love this series, and I loved the start of Malloron and Amara's relationship.

I loved the glimpse that we got of Malloron in the Crave books, so I was super excited to learn that he and Amara would be the focus of the second trilogy. Like Drocco, Malloron is an alpha in every way, but he is much more twisty and manipulative than Drocco was and reminded me a lot of Loki. He is a powerful Talent user, and through him, we learn more about

I have read the "Crave to" series that follows Emperor Droco and Cailyn's adventures from Cailyn's discovery as an Omega to her acceptance of her Alpha, and I think it's important for that series to be read before starting the "Reign to" series that follows King Malloron and Amara. There's too much background information, not to mention a great story, that would be missed otherwise.
I can see that Malloron is starting his change, and I definitely hope that he gets rid of the slaves in the pleasur

I really enjoyed this book. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars because the beginning did seem a bit slow but definitely picked up pace.

King Malloron is a powerful man who is not used to having his power tested by others. Amara is a strong, determined woman. Willing to go the extra mile to get the answers she wants no matter what it takes. She finds out soon enough it might be harder fighting her own mixed emotions than it is to fight the King.

I liked the mild BDSM the story had to offer. It was just

Eek! I meant to write a review a while ago, I’m in the middle of trying to move so too many things are getting in the way of my reading! LOL! Malloron is one of my favorite characters of Zoey Ellis’, I feel like he just fits all of my preferences to a T. Anti-hero done right- Check. Sweet but sassy heroine- check. Side of dark- check. Great storyline- check. If you like a darker hero than this is the book for you, I couldn’t have loved him more and this was the perfect trope to put him in. LOVED ...more

Daammnn! Malloran and Amara are so dang hot! I highlighted so many quotes in this text. I kind of wish I could wait until the series Is completed then I could read it all the way through. There are some intriguing plot twists. This story is way different than Drocco and Cailyns story. Amara is a fighter and refuses to let him get away with his shenanigans. I have questions galore. What is going on in the red dungeon? Will we see the Omegas again? What about Drocco and Cailyn? What is going to ha ...more
This is a great start to what I hope will be a great series. It doesn't drag on with boring conversations or go on and on about history. Entertaining spy work as well. It is similar to the previous series but quite changed. Looking forward to the next installment.

Slow to start and found myself putting it down several times. But once I really got into it, couldn't stop reading till the end.

Extremely cruel anti-hero but incredibly delicious if you are looking for that sort.

Bring on the next book!

I received an advanced reader copy of this book to review *minor spoilers ahead*

I loved the story of Drocco and Cailyn in the first novel and couldn't wait for King Malloron's story. Don't let his use of magic fool you into thinking he's not just as Alpha as Drocco and this book proves it! I loved the in-depth worldbuilding of the Western Lands in this book and how different it was from the 1st 3 books around Drocco. This was not necessarily a direct continuation of the 1st trilogy but it's not

MALLORAN is supposedly the most powerful Talent Crafter and in the first book we see his desperation to have an Omega. The question is why? He's desperate to find a vessel to hold the Tenebris, a powerful source that only certain heir in his family can hold and allows them to use magic without dropping dead.

"Engaging first book of Alpha Malloron’s tale and the perfect slave he has many uses for…”

REIGN TO RUIN (Myth of Omega, Book #4) by Zoey Ellis —>>> Alpha King Malloron had been pragmatic for many years now, regarding his rule of Eiros Castle, taking the utmost precautions to ensure he maintains control over the surrounding Western lands. It has come to his attention, however, that magic was being used in his very own castle, and he has finally found the culprit -
When Reign To Ruin appeared in my inbox, I dropped everything (including the book I was busy reading) and started reading this immediately. Having read, and loved, the previous Myth Of Omega books, I had high expectations for Reign To Ruin. I was not disappointed.

This time round, we are taken back to the Western Lands and Eiros Castle, home of King Malloron. Unlike other Alphas in Omegaverse books, who want and need Omegas mainly to mate with, Malloron has a different agenda, making this book un
