Publisher's Summary

As the kingdom of Camelot descends into complacency, an ambitiously sadistic madman known as Merodach advances his rogue armies, recruiting by the sword and threatening revolt. Eighteen-year-old Princess Gabriella is the only one who understands the severity of the threat, but she is powerless to convince her father or her brave commoner husband, Darrick.
With defeat all but certain, Gabriella sets out on a final, desperate quest. Her plan: to confront and defeat the madman, Merodach, before his armies can destroy everything she loves. Alone and on foot, she must cross the haunted magical wasteland known as the Tempest Barrens, where she is beset by mutant beasts, capricious magical creatures, and even the walking dead.
In the end, wounded and hopeless, Gabriella finally confronts her nemesis and learns his final, horrible secret: He is not alone, and the forces he has allied with are far more powerful than anyone could have imagined.

Entertaining.

This was such an entertaining and engaging read and definitely makes me want to read more by this author.

The summary says enough about the plot that I'm not going to add anything in case I spoil something, so all I'll say is that it's a fast paced, intense, magic filled, adventurous read. I loved how it was being told from 2 separate generations and how they collide. It was really well written and described and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The characters were all well written and developed but my favourite was Gabriella. She was such a great role model. She was brave, loyal, impulsive but also kick ass and not afraid to do what is right.

In all, this is a really great read. It has everything a good book should and I look forward to more from this author.

Jus Sargeant did a good job with the narration. There was enough different tones for each character that I had no problem following who was talking.

*I received this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

A well done Camelot legend.

Any additional comments?

I received this audio book at no cost in exchange for an honest review courtesy of audio book boom.

Ruins of Camelot is a fun take on the Arthurian myth and a fall of Camelot that happens long after Arthur. The characters are engaging, the plotis fun, and the weaving back and forth between times is well executed. The narration is also superb. All in all, I highly recommend this one.
