House of Ballads is a faction in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-reckoning. Each faction has its own story, quests, and characters; some offer houses the Fateless One can own, others promise treasures untold.

The House of Ballads is the home to the greatest Summer Fae heroes, embodying all the morals and ethics that the Summer Fae and the Summer Court of High King Titarion uphold. As magical beings who embody nature in the physical world, the Fae lack "mortality", when they "die" they are reborn later on. As such, their lives tend to be circular, repeating over and over in cycles. Each Fae has his or her own calling for the cycle, and those who have done something heroic or very important to Fae society has their lives immortalized in a ballad.

These ballads repeat themselves through the seasons, reenacted down to the very smallest detail. Although they do repeat, the original heroes are no longer with the Ballads. They have all left, either due to retirement due to having a greater call in their cycle or through death. All current members are Summer Fae who have taken up the mantle of a hero that they had successfully completed the telling.

Due to the Fae's lack of mortality, or rather ability to be reborn, they live their lives repeating the actions of their past through what is known as "Ballads". These Ballads are cherished by the Fae and the stories they contain, reenacted to the very last detail. However, it would appear that as the hero's ability to unravel the thread of fate itself has put the Fae's way of life out of balance and, thus, changed the way their very ballads are sung.

With the powers of the Summer Fae slowly fading, a dark twist is beginning to take shape within their ballads. The heroes and the other members are bewildered, trying to figure out exactly what is going on and who is behind this.
