    When Rigg and his friends crossed the Wall between the only world they knew and a world they could not imagine, he hoped he was leading them to safety. But the dangers in this new wallfold are more difficult to see. Rigg, Umbo, and Param know that they cannot trust the expendable, Vadesh - a machine shaped like a human, created to deceive - but they are no longer certain that they can even trust one another. But they will have little choice. Because although Rigg can decipher the paths of the past, he can’t yet see the horror that lies ahead: A destructive force with deadly intentions is hurtling toward Garden.

    Brian says: "A good follow-up, but could have been better"
    "great continuation of the original story, but..."

    Story
    Where does Ruins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    interesting storyline,I liked it right up till the end, no resolution, obviously this will be a trilogy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruins?

    when they discussed time travel, it made me think of how planet placement in space/time would change by thousands, or millions of miles. This would present a huge obstacle to any real time travel.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    many, he's always consistently good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I know the author hasn't been well, and he's trying to tie up lose ends on his many series. I hope he can finish this .
