Meet the Author

In spring 2002, Robert Stanek's first books, Keeper Martin's Tale and Elf Queen's Quest, appeared on bookshelves and become instant bestsellers, spending a combined 26 weeks on the Amazon.com Sci-Fi/Fantasy Top 50 list. These stories introduced readers to the fantasy world of Ruin Mist. The name "Ruin Mist" is the common language translation of an elvish word, which means "the lost ages". The stories of Ruin Mist are set in a fictional past of our world.

The popularity of the Ruin Mist books built up through the release of the subsequent books. Readers were taken with the magical realms, the grand adventures, and the combination of classic fantasy elements with a fresh, highly imaginative approach. In spring 2005, Robert Stanek's books were first published in audio and became instant audio bestsellers, spending more than 52 weeks on Audible.com's bestseller lists. In 2005, his book, The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches, eventually became one of the Top 100 all-time fiction bestsellers on Audible.com. The book was so popular, it was featured on the Audible.com home page throughout July and August 2005.

It's been a fairly open secret that Robert Stanek is the name of the more familiar bestselling author William Stanek. The main reason for using Robert Stanek for fiction and William Stanek for nonfiction was the astounding pace at which William Stanek produces books. With nearly 50 published books to his credit by 2002, he had many upcoming books waiting to be released by his current publishers, and was creating more and more fiction as a creative outlet to balance his work in nonfiction.

"I wanted to find audiences for both my nonfiction and my fiction. I love writing nonfiction works that help people learn how to do new things, but I also love writing fiction works that open new doorways to the imagination," explains Mr. Stanek. "The Ruin Mist books have been a part of who I am since I started them in the 1980s and they allowed me to create a magical realm with many levels of reality. I was overjoyed that I finally could share the realm and the books with others."

The Ruin Mist books have afforded Mr. Stanek an opportunity to explore relationships, family stories, epic sagas, myths, legends, and more. His books have been popular with fans both young and old.

    short books.

    Books themselves are pretty short. A lot of junk at end of books about the fantasy world, etc. Story line isn't too bad. Lots of misspellings & layout errors, but readable.

    Excellent Book

    Robert Stanek is a wonderful author who can write exactly what a reader likes. This is the best book I have ever before read, everything you would want in a book is right here it is so good at painting a mental picture in your head. I loved it from the moment I read the first page of this. Get lost amongst the fantasy of dwarves, dragons, elves, magic and humans!

    Love it!!

    This book will keep you reading from cover to cover. The blend of intense action amazing landscapes and jawdropping events makes this book anyting but boring. Vilmos and Xith travel to amazing place and Valam journeys in the elvin kingdoms. This book is a MUST READ for fantacy readers and is great read for anyone who wants a good adventure book.

    Best BOOK

    This was the best book I have ever read. The only one better is the first one. I used to be crazy about Harry Potter, but not any more. I couldn't stop reading In the Service of Dragons because it was so good. It is a bit challanging but I read it when I was ten. Me and two other people who loved it tried to get our teacher to read it but she didn't because some people just decided that they didn't like it without even looking at it. But they are crazy. IT IS THE BEST BOOK ON EARTH.

    This Book Is Awesome

    This book is amazing, and came close to Lord of the Rings! It was one of those books I couldn't put down, and that doesn't happen often. This is very suspensful, and I was upset when it was over because I wanted more!
