Ruin - Soon to be Published!

by Xbwalker

The land of Ruin is a brutal, harsh, and unforgiving desert with little water and less kindness. Do not mistake its brutality for lack of life though. Thousands of traders and people from all walks of life travel its vast reaches daily looking to make their fortune in the trade of "black crystal" - the mineral that fuels everything from airships to, landships, to currency its self. There is even rumor of its magical properties.

Jim is just such a trader and frankly, he sucks at it. But, things are about to change for him. Ever the introverted hermit, he's about to be thrust into a world of intrigue, magic, and colorful friends. Ruin gives few second chances. Don't waste yours.

A very entertaining story!

Fast paced. Good grammar. Interesting story and characters with personality and logic behind their actions fitting the context.

In short, I loved it.

According to the autor this book is just the first of 3(maybe 4) in the saga and has no lack of action, adventure, fantasy, and magic.

Bait: There, better I don't spoil it for you, just go and read it, I recommend it.


A decent story, worth to spend some time on.

This book does read like a published book.

I myself noticed barely any grammar mistakes and even if there were any, they were of no problem to the overall reading experience.

The pacing is also decently fast without wasting much potentional plot.

The world in wich the story takes place in is pretty well built along with the characters being interesting, there is no stupid stuff which you would see in other novels.

Also all the art for this story cannot be forgotten, the art is drawn pretty well and fits in within this book.

This review is for the first book, not for the later ones since i have not read them yet.

As in overall, a good story with very good writing, i hope this author completes the rest of the series.
