Ruin by John Gwynne

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. For in Drassil lies the spear of Skald, one of the seven treasures, and here it is prophesied that the Bright Star will stand against the Black Sun. @goodreads



Damn it all to hell! I knew that ending was going to happen and I am not happy one freaking bit!

You know where that ending can go? ↓

I don't even know what to say in this review! Probably not much. Everyone you love dies! Everything you love dies! THE END!

Why do I torture myself with books like this and Game of Thrones when I know they are going to kill everything you love 50 billion times! I guess because they are so well written. Damn it!


Don't even talk to me right now! I'm soooooo mad. At least I didn't cry! I always cry in books as all of my friends that read my reviews know. I'm in too much of a bad mood to cry! I want to set all of these books on fire, but then I will kill everyone and everything that I love all over again! And of course I will read them again some day because when you read stuff again you catch more than you did the first time around. I do that with movies too. Maybe I'm just not that bright. And I can't do that to a book, I love my books too much for them to get hurt =)

I'm hoping something good is going to happen when my paperback, pre-ordered copy gets here on December 6th, but I highly doubt it!

One star removed from what would have been a five star review for one particular death, or what seems to be a death.
