With rich, expressive descriptions and characters that leave an impression, Kingdom of Ruins held me captive until the epic culmination of everything leading up to the climax. And hints at things to come in the future of this series. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Aug 02, Florence Wright rated it really liked it. After spending our honeymoon in Orlando and making a few visits after that, I learned to appreciate roller coasters and fast rides.
Kingdom of Ruins is not that ride. Wind speaks, little breezes play with you, the ocean speaks with special writing and the epochs call out from huge deep chasms. There is just enough mystery and wondering what will happen and what happened before the story, to carry you along.
I kind of wished she was the main character, she was so full of life, color and music. The creative premises to me are very interesting and many are kind of new to me, so all in all, it was a good read. The opinions I express are provided without obligation for a positive review. I receive no compensation for the review, other than a really good read. Aug 04, Katie rated it really liked it.
Fantasy meets reality in a historic way through the eyes of an archeologist that has a fear of ruins. If that sentence seems to twist your head a little bit, get ready for a fun fantasy ride in Kingdom of Ruins. Our author uses great artistry creating "The Lands Within. I always enjoy a good fantasy, and it certainly took artisitic skill to craft this on Fantasy meets reality in a historic way through the eyes of an archeologist that has a fear of ruins.
I always enjoy a good fantasy, and it certainly took artisitic skill to craft this one, and the plot we find within. While this read is a lengthy one, and I wish that maybe the action was a bit more fast paced, there is plenty to be in awe of. I connected to Lori because I too tend to be fearful, but the Lord has a way of pushing me way out of comfort zone as Lori finds herself.
I felt like the characters were very relatable as well which isn't always easy to do with characters contained within a fantasy world. Overall, great artistry here. If you like adventure, fantasy, or just a fun read that will keep you guessing until the end, Kingdom of Ruins is for you!

Reminiscent of some other books I've liked, this book is engaging and has a world that feels eerily familiar, like I've met it or read it before. An archaeologist afraid of ruins, oh my.
Poor Lori, what a thing to have to cope with. I had to read more before I could decide why she would even stay in a profession that caused her so much fear. Lori winds up sucked through a wormhole. Now that she's in another world, it's even more import Living artifacts, that's something I can dig. Now that she's in another world, it's even more important to fight her fears and use her gifts at every turn. Thane was another strong character and I look forward to the next book in this series.
It's a strong fantasy read, that isn't so far fetch from my own imagination. That makes me feel connected and comfortable with the world that the author created. It's a debut book that should expand into a good series. Themes include, obviously, fighting fear, dealing with sin, good over evil, greed vs giving, and finding out who you really are. My thoughts and opinions are my own, left of my own free will. May 28, sarah rated it it was amazing.
May I just say, thank you so much for writing this. Marino, this was fantastic. I don't think I have shipped two characters harder than I did Thane and Lori From the archeologist with atephobia, who could sense ruins, to the Lands Within, to the purenthas, this was absolutely brilliant!
I can't wait for it to be published so that I can fangirl about it with all my friends!!! Aug 12, Debbie rated it really liked it. Marino is a fantasy that is a long read but I found it interesting.

For someone that is usually saying no to such novels, I was curious about this book that hosted history being erased and a female character that I absolutely loved. Lori and I are very similar when touching objects it is easy to feel the life of a previous duty in it. Though obviously Lori experiences more magic than this mere mortal. I really loved the realms, each hosting its own unique characters and obstacles.
I loved the good vs. I would gladly pursue reading more in the series, if there are more. Where do I begin??? Lori is such a strong character and the world that she stumbles into is so magical that I just want to step inside and soak it all in! I only wish that we got to spend more time learning about Lori and her childhood at the beginning of the book.
I feel like I was a bit lost trying to figure her out, and deciphering her motives was a whole ot Where do I begin??? I feel like I was a bit lost trying to figure her out, and deciphering her motives was a whole other ballgame.
However, because I am familiar with the author and her voice, it helped to use her personality and "instagram reading voice" to read the story to me. One thing's for sure: I can't wait for her audiobook to come out so that I can follow along!
Aug 10, Alicia Beck rated it it was ok. My Review Kingdom of Ruins is a fantasy type of story. Lori has the ability to feel the past by items she finds or places she goes. In this story you will travel to a strange world. Along the way there is plenty of secrets and mystery. It took me awhile to really get pulled into the story. But the story was well written with lots of detail. Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my own honest ones.

After Merida met the same witch and gave her mother the same kind of spell and the two were trying to undo it, the Will O' the Wisps led them to ruins.
Merida wasn't sure who once lived there until she fell into the old throne room and saw the four stone thrones and the split stone carving of the brothers; she realized that she wasn't the first one to use the spell, the ruins are the remains of the kingdom from the old legend and that the prince that the witch told her was the oldest son and that the spell turned him into Mor'du.
After Merida put the peaces together, the beast woke up and tried to catch her, but Elinor got her daughter out of the ruins and the two ended up in Ring of Stones. When the two went back to the Castle so they may fix the family tapstry and undo the spell , Merida reminded her father and the lords of the legend: as Merida told them and how their own kingdom is still young, and that their stories are not yet legends and how they put their hatred for each aside so they may defend their land and bring it together, she realized her mistake and what her selfness would of led to and that legends do ring with truth.
