The lovely Wendy at Wall-To-Wall Books has posted the first review of Ruins! Check out her 4.5 star review below…
Fantastic, gripping, action packed thriller! There is not a dull moment in this book. It just amazes me that an author can think this stuff up! This has a very complex plot that you have to pay attention to, no sleeping through this one (like you would anyway).
There was good strong character development. I liked Nicholas, of course, our hero. But I also loved Rae and Dawn, and then there’s Merlyn (he’s hilarious). And Isobel, the cat is still a favorite! I just loved everybody.
The first 1/3 of the book was a little confusing to me. It had been a long time since I had read the first book, it took me a bit to catch on and remember who was who and what had happened. But the book kept getting better and better throughout. I would really suggest reading all the books one ofter another.
As crazy as the ending got – it was actually less confusing to me than the rest of the book, it was very well done. And the visualization was fantastic, I had no trouble picturing everything, the author did a fantastic job!
I love it when there are little things that you can connect with in a story – I am not sure if “London’s burning, London’s burning” is a reference to The Clash??? But I love The Clash! So I took it as a reference! LOL
This was a great second book to this series, can’t wait till the next!
