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.

    "Decent story but nothing outstanding"
    What did you like most about Ruin?

    I was getting a little annoyed with the book at first but I am glad I stuck with it as it got more interesting as it went on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruin?

    The duel towards the end.


    What three words best describe Damian Lynch’s voice?

    His characterisations are admirable and competent but he reads the book with many amateurisms. The most annoying thing is how he uses a load whispered voice when one of the characters is shouting. I am assuming he is a trained actor, so I expect something more than that.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Action-packed

    "Great story"

    Firstly, I've come finally to earn a grudging respect for Damian Lynch. This is a difficult character set to narrate and while initially I felt he had chosen some odd voices for some characters, there is one thing he does very well and that is maintain consistency across all the stories so far.

    I think my only criticism remaining perhaps is for parts of the story where the characters shout, Damian sort of 'whisper shouts' as if he's got kids in the room next door he doesn't want to wake while reading. It takes some of the emotion out of the reading but for the rest of the story you forget it's being narrated and just become immersed in the story.

    And it is a great story, occasionally getting a bit battle predictable with great arcs of blood and hammer crunched bones but I guess there are only so many ways to describe the graphic violence of combat.

    Highly recommend, particularly if you enjoyed the first two.
