Publisher's Summary

The Banished Lands are engulfed in war and chaos. The cunning Queen Rhin has conquered the west, and High King Nathair has the cauldron, most powerful of the seven treasures. At his back stands the scheming Calidus and a warband of the Kadoshim, dread demons of the Otherworld. They plan to bring Asroth and his host of the Fallen into the world of flesh, but to do so they need the seven treasures.

Nathair has been deceived, but now he knows the truth. He has choices to make, choices that will determine the fate of the Banished Lands.

Elsewhere the flame of resistance is growing - Queen Edana finds allies in the swamps of Ardan. Maquin is loose in Tenebral, hunted by Lykos and his corsairs. Here he will witness the birth of a rebellion in Nathair's own realm.

Corban has been swept along by the tide of war. He has suffered, lost loved ones, sought only safety from the darkness. But he will run no more. He has seen the face of evil, and he has set his will to fight it. The question is: how? With a disparate band gathered about him - his family, friends, giants, fanatical warriors, an angel and a talking crow - he begins the journey to Drassil, the fabled fortress hidden deep in the heart of Forn Forest.

    "Soooo good"

    It's really hard to say what I loved about this book with out ruining it for others, if you have read the other two read this, if you haven't read the other two start now. Proper old school fantasy.

    "So emotional !"

    This is the second time I have listened to these books and it is still absolutely fantastic: The story is gripping, the narration is excellent, you just don't want it to end because you know how it will end. Cannot wait for the final instalment. 10/10 (for me).

    "Rich in character and story"

    Third in the series. If you know the series then you know what to expect. The plot develops and thickens and the well crafted characters mature and, in some cases, die. It took time to appreciate the delivery of the narrator but I now consider him one of the best. It ends dramatically and I eagerly await the next installment.
    If this is new to you then, think Martin and Abercrombie and find the first book in the series. A good plot and rich characters but could be a little confusing without listening to the earlier books.

    "Weird accents"

    Having read the first two books I thought I would give the audiobook for Ruin a try.

    No idea what the deal is with the weird attempts at accents by narrator as he is not particularly skilled at this moment. If you are going to do it get it right. The weird accent of the main character is pretty confusing and amusing in places which does not help the story.

    I will stick to the book as this series has been good this far.

    "Hooked! MORE PLEASE :-)"

    PLEASE AUDIBLE, PLEASE MAKE THE FINAL BOOK IN THE SERIES AVAILABLE!!!!!!
    I would throughly recommend this series (Ruin is the 3rd out of 4). Well rounded characters and interesting story with enough turns to keep it exciting but not confusing :-) It took me a little while in the first book to engage with the jump from character to character with each new chapter but by Ruin, I am totally hooked on all of them.

    The narrator's accents are excellent and help distinguish between characters. I'm a VERY BIG FAN :-)

    "Hard to put down"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ruin to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read this in print, but I did the first two in the series. It was a very good listen, an emotional roller coaster that the author and the narrator take you on from start to finish.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say it is hard to single out a single character in this, but if I have to choose it would be Veradis. I love his struggle as a good man on the wrong side. I won't say anymore as not to spoil the journey. Brinnna, is excellent in her stern maternal ways treating everyone like children, though being caring all the while.


    Have you listened to any of Damian Lynch’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but I would listen again. He was excellent his voices brining the characters to life giving voice to the great personalities in the story, making you buy in to each and every character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it took a while, but it brightened up the long walks to work and those long boring hours doing cardio in the gym.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read or listen. I eagerly await the final instalment.
