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.

Each book in the series better than the last

Can't get enough of this series. A huge amount of fantastic characters, all very well developed. Yet, not overwhelming. I never once found myself lost within the epic scale of the story. Keep an on John Gwynne. This guy is gonna go far

The best so far.

This book is by far the most impressive piece of fantasy literature I have listened to, it has made me feel empower, happy, sad, helpless and down right awe struck.

both the writing style and the narrator are perfect.

time to start the final book.....Though I really am scared.....

Stunning, fast-paced action

Would you consider the audio edition of Ruin to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Camlyn. Hard to explain but something about him resonates. Also like Edana, Coralen, Veradis and Cewyn.

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

I've only listened to his other Faithful and Fallen performances and this is right up there.

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

Not really. Though I found myself getting very involved in a number of the plotlines.
