Ruination: A League of Legends Novel is a novel that will be released by Riot Games Inc. on September 6th, 2022. It primarily focuses on the Ruination of Helia and the events leading up to it from the perspective of Kalista Kalista and Viego Viego, the King of Camavor Crest icon.png Camavor.


The first ever novel set in the blockbuster universe of League of Legends, one of the most popular video games of all time, Ruination is an epic tale of magic, revenge, and an empire on the verge of ruin.

Camavor Crest icon.png Camavor is a brutal land with a bloody legacy. Where the empire’s knights go, slaughter follows.

Kalista Kalista seeks to change that. When her young and narcissistic uncle, Viego Viego, becomes king, she vows to temper his destructive instincts, as his loyal confidant, advisor, and military general. But her plans are thwarted when an assassin’s poisoned blade strikes Viego’s wife, Isolde Isolde, afflicting her with a malady for which there is no cure.

As Isolde’s condition worsens, Viego descends into madness and grief, threatening to drag Camavor down with him. Kalista makes a desperate gambit to save the kingdom: she searches for the long lost Blessed Isles Crest icon.png Blessed Isles, rumored to hold the queen’s salvation, if only Kalista can find them.

But corruption grows in the Blessed Isles’ capital, where a vengeful warden warden seeks to ensnare Kalista in his cruel machinations. She will be forced to choose between her loyalty to Viego and doing what she knows is right--for even in the face of utter darkness, one noble act can shine a light that saves the world.

Featured Characters


  • Online shops that sell the book describe it as "the first ever novel set in the blockbuster universe of League of Legends". Garen: First Shield, released before the Ruination book, is a novella. A work of fiction between 20,000 and 49,999 words is considered a novella. Once a book hits the 50,000 word mark, it is generally considered a novel. However, a standard novel is around 80,000 words, so books between 50,000 to 79,999 words may be called short novels.
  • The first cover of the novel shows the Blade of the Ruined King Blade of the Ruined King of Viego Viego with a soul silhouette of Kalista Kalista appearing in the middle of the sword.
