Publisher's Summary

Kalish has been a successful treasure hunter for years, relying on only herself to deal with deadly predators, impenetrable jungles, and diabolical booby traps. But with her father kidnapped, and a notorious pirate demanding an ancient alien artifact that may or may not exist, Kalish needs help.

She hires a mercenary company because she needs their combat experience and their piloting skills - the intelligence officer with the background in translating alien hieroglyphics could come in useful, too. Sedgwick Thomlin is charming and handsome, when he isn't busy sneezing at something from his long list of allergies. But she's not sure if she can trust him or the mercenaries, not when the most valuable and coveted relic in the galaxy might turn out to be real.

The Ruins of Karzelek is a space-based adventure and romance that can be listened to as a standalone. It is also part of the Mandrake Company series and brings back characters from the other books, such as Val, Gregor, Tick, and Striker.

Space men/women not living like monks.

The story is engaging, but the most memorable is the author doesn't treat the characters like sexual ciphers. Too much sci fi treats there characters like they took monastic vows of celibacy. Even if they can't write XXX rated scenarios as good as this, they could at least acknowledge that stuff happens. And the narrator can go from sultry to command without skipping a beat. Not for the prudish, but for the engaged.

A hero with vulnerabilities

Segde can defeat the bad guys, protect the females, and save the day with the best of them. That is if his allergies doesn’t defeat him first. I loved the fact that our hero wasn’t 100% macho. So far, this has been an excellent series.

ruby doesn't disappoint

had to go back to this series as I've been in a slump having listened to all my favourite authors and waiting for more to be uploaded.
even got in trouble ( just a tad😊) with audible as I returned too many awful books.
it was heaven to listen to Jill Redfield she brings all characters and plots to life.
this wasn't as sexy as some of the others but really action packed. it was unusual to see the Hero leave their job and join the heroine...haven't listened to many like that. such great plotlines and awesome research into sci-fi technology.

***The Ruins of Karzelek***

Another explosive story from Ruby Lionsdrake, it's unputdownable fast paced, full of edge of your seat actions and explosions romance hot and sexy nerdy mercenaries and kick ass treasure hunters just to name a few. take my word for it's another winner. And Jill Redfield? oh my God she is just brilliant.
