'City in Ruins' by R.K. Ryals

A Time flys when your having fun right? Time for the last review of the 'Scribes of Merdesia' series. If you havent read the first two reviews here are the clickable links for 'Mark of the Mage', 'Tempest' and 'Fist of the Furor' by R.K Ryles. Lets get started:

After saving her people things are still not the way they are meant to be. Stone is still trapped inside a world of politics and gods. With Prince Cadeyrn at her side they venture to save much more than just Merdeisia. Dark times are coming for Sadeemia that could effect them all.

After the amazing first three books in the series this one just did not live up to them. It was quick paced, too quick. The poetic writing was still there but it had lost the sparkle the other three had. Parts of the novel felt like it was a filler. The story line was fantastic but the depth was lost and could have easily have went on for two if not more books. I did enjoy it, but felt like this book was an unneeded addition too what would have been a fantastic trilogy.

I do however thing i will be checking out this author to see what else has written. I really enjoyed her writing style and descriptive language. 


Have you ever read a book that didn't live up to expectation? Let me know down below.

Much Love,

  2. I've not heard of this series before, so it would be great to get a little run down on the themes etc!

  3. oh how disappointing when you read a book and it's a let down. I find that a lot of books are great to start with but then the author doesn't know how to end it. I've had a few book group selections that have ended up like that!

  4. I've read many books that didn't live up to expectation, but also many that excelled so they make up for it :)

  5. I've never heard of this author before but the storyline does sound intriguing. It's a shame the plot wasn't as good as it should've been though. I can't stand it when I'm really excited to read a book but it's full of flaws!

  8. I have read several books which didn't live up to my expectations, some I have just stopped reading and picked something different to read but others I have persevered with and on occasion one has proved me wrong.

  10. I hate it when a book you are looking forward to let's you down, I still have to read to the end, but boy it is frustrating.
