Sometimes tales flow down from the mountain peaks like the snow-fed streams that bleed down their boney flanks. Strange beasts. Stranger men.

Review by: Azriel on Dec. 18, 2014 :
This is a Tale worth reading! T.B. Schmid has crafted a truly outstanding fantasy adventure that will keep it's readers riveted until the very last word. It has everything a fan of this genre could want; Action, adventure, romance and magic and he does it with vivid scenes, strong believable characters and a unique story. This book left me wanting more, more, more and so I eagerly await the Ruine series. Take note: T.B. Schmid will become a household name!

Review by: joelschmid on Nov. 29, 2014 :
Like a warm, crackling fire on a cold winters night !
After wading through so many cookie cutter fantasy/D&D style stories this one was a welcome relief from all the E. Howard wanna-bees.
The settings and scenery in this story were spectacular and well described.
The author handles combat and love interest scenes with skill and realism - two areas typically embarrassingly bumbled by many amateur authors.
My only nitpick might b e that I had a bit of a hard time with two of the stories characters forming a friendship at the end, but otherwise a fine read.
Looking forward to the RUINE series. I anticipate some reading time well spent ...
