Publisher's Summary

Sistina awakened after millennia of dormancy, her memories in tatters and born anew. Residing in the ruins of an ancient city, she finds herself drawn into a war between two elven nations and the slaver kingdom of Kelvanis when she rescues a princess from slavery.

With her domain containing hints of forgotten knowledge, Sistina becomes a dungeon, stronghold, and source of hope all at once. And perhaps, just perhaps, she could finally find love in her new life.

This is a dark fantasy novel suitable for adults.

    Story
    "An excellent elaboration of the fantasy genera"
    What made the experience of listening to Ancient Ruins the most enjoyable?

    This book was a joy to read as the story slowly unfolded. The author does a marvelous job in atmospheric world building. At one point when a specific point was elaborated I was initially quite surprised, as I knew most of the prudent points about it already without them being stated outright. The world is also very complex, in that it is easy to lump people together into stereotyped groups, but as the story progressed, and we learn more about them, those lines begin to blur. Even the villains are shown to have motivations that humanize them.

    "Very enjoyable, highly recommend"

    A very enjoyable rendition of a truly fantastic book. The reading was very well done, with just a few parts that I felt good have been done better. In addition, it was a purely personal reaction so other people might have very different feelings. The parts I didn't like were few and far apart, so they did not hurt the over all telling. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone.

    "Good acting, horrible story"

    The story starts off decent but hits rock bottom when it goes into Rape, slavery, and brainwashing. This book made me so mad I couldn't finish it after half way through.

    Story
    "feminist dribble..."

    So do you hate men? You think humans make the best bad guys ever? This book is for you. The reason that I decided that to give this book a try after reading the overview was the "dark fantasy" tag. Bad stuff happens in this book... a lot of bad stuff, but never to the main characters. I found myself almost goimg for the bad guys after awhile.
