The complete Ruin Mist Chronicles, over 2,400 pages in print. Enter a world of titans and dragons, men and elves.
Three heroes set out on an epic journey of discovery only to find that at the end of their journey nothing is what they thought it was and that their world is undergoing a transformation that will change everything. Survival in a changing world depends on their ability to adapt and if they fail, their world and everything they believe in will perish.
Against a backdrop of treachery and intrigue, murder and mayhem, the price of free will is high. Many will pay with their lives. Many will succumb. For when alliances shatter, old hatreds rise anew and the plotting and scheming begin. Bold, inventive, brilliantly imagined, Ruin Mist Chronicles is an epic adventure of magic and wonder.
Their world will be transformed. This is their story. Fully linked and cross-linked with links to individual books. Extras: Lost chapters and scenes restored; the meeting of Xith and Vilmos as originally written; the chronicles of Ruin Mist completely unaltered to hint at the story's origins in ancient myth and legend.
Praise for Robert Stanek's Ruin Mist...
Foreword Magazine: No matter how fascinating a fantasy world is, it fails if not animated by a compelling story and Stanek gives us not just one, but three, tales. A prolific non-fiction writer, Stanek's focus on instruction influences his fiction with a penchant for clear and simple prose. He also prefers swift, action-oriented scenes. Solidly built. Stanek moves among his main characters with ease, always switching at a climactic moment to maintain suspense. The accessible, brisk language keeps things moving.
Stanek's Ruin Mist was featured in the Publisher's Weekly Cover Story in April 2009. Nearly a million people have read the Ruin Mist books. The books are available via Amazon, Audible, Playaway, OverDrive, and more than a dozen other retail and library partners.
The Complete Idiots Guide to Elves and Fairies:The world of literary fiction featuring elves and fairies [has] a multitude of great authors... of these authors Robert Stanek [is one].
Ancient Art of Faery Magick: "Recommended series."
Review by the YA Librarian Staff at VOYA - the leading magazine for YA librarians: Dramatic illustrations draw the reader into the Tolkienesque world of Ruin Mist, plunged into darkness after a Great War five hundred years past. Sure to attract fans of graphic novels and classic Tolkien alike. Stanek will likely draw a cult following, but his work is not for the novice fantasy reader. Despite the sophisticated plot, however, this guarantees fans, and those fans will be ready to wield their swords against the Dark Lord in Stanek's next installment.
