Realm of Ruins Reviews
Awesome awesome awesome book! For anyone who appreciates a book with strong female characters, sexy and intelligent men, Disney references, fantasy and magic....this is the book for you! And that is really just the tip of the iceberg. I read this book in ONE NIGHT. I could not put it down, and I was crazy tired the next day. I didn't care though.

I was thrilled to be able to pick up the second book immediately after the first and stay in this world. I'll gather my thoughts and write my review.
More like 4.5. I really liked this book. Well written.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. In return for my honest thoughts and review. I am so glad I won this book. I really enjoyed it. Now you don't have to read the first one. But I highly recommend that you do read the first book. Because there a lot information that refer back to book one. This book is about a young girl Valory who is training for a eliccromancer stone. Then on her birthday party she fellows her friend to the magical water. Then gets sent to prison for a crime that she didn ...more
I would call this a back story fantasy. To me this story gives you the story of how Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White came about and I absolutely loved it. Valory is our hero that puts it all into action. This story just made me go wow I can see that being the back story. Well written and executed beautifully.
“These words were intended to be spoken amid joyous revelers, but somehow they were more precious whispered in the shadows of rebellion.”
Realm of Ruins is a thrilling fantasy adventure that although not wholly unique, is quite enjoyable to read through and presents some intriguing situations that push the line about what is heroic or not. With so many fantasy elements and various bits of well-known fairy-tales sprinkled throughout, I unfortunately couldn’t help but feel that the story is a t ...more
