The land of Ruin is a brutal, harsh, and unforgiving desert with little water and less kindness. Do not mistake its brutality for lack of life though. Thousands of traders and people from all walks of life travel its vast reaches daily looking to make their fortune in the trade of "black crystal" - the mineral that fuels everything from airships to, landships, to currency its self. There is even rumor of its magical properties.

Jim is just such a trader and frankly, he isn't very good. But, things are about to change for him. Ever the introverted hermit, he's about to be thrust into a world of intrigue, magic, and colorful characters. Ruin gives few second chances. Don't waste yours.

Enjoy this unique full sized novel filled with over 60 illustrations from artists around the world. Thanks to the low cost of E-Book publishing, this colorful book costs much less than a print novel of similar visual calibre.

Editors - Daniel E. Olesen and Adam Wright
Illustrators - Brandon Ellis, Valentina Baric, Do Hoang Son, Al Bani, Guilloux Youenn, Cassandra Canady
