    After finishing Kingdom of Ash and Briars, I was super excited to pick this book up. Realm of Ruins is a continuation of the series, but it is its own standalone book. I really liked this story. It was so reminiscent of the first one, but completely was its own story. Again, with this ...

    I won this book as part of a goodreads giveaway. I would not have purchased this book on my own, so I'm glad I won it since it was such an enjoyable read. Like all fantasy books, it's sometimes hard to keep track of the unique settings, names and experiences, but this book was worth th...

    I would call this a back story fantasy. To me this story gives you the story of how Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White came about and I absolutely loved it. Valory is our hero that puts it all into action. This story just made me go wow I can see that being the ba...

    Rating: 4 Stars ???? Realm Of Ruins is the spin-off/companion to West's 2016 debut, Kingdom Of Ash And Briars! This YA Fantasy melds so much from action, magic, fairy tales, quests, dark powers, royalty, & so much more! If your looking for wholly unique twists on the class...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) What I loved about Realm of Ruins is that it looks about the cost of ambitions and the price of the rules when they are broken. It's almost like a mixture of Bea...

    I enjoyed most of this book, but the ending left me feeling sort of disappointed, how this big bad was swatted pretty much like a moth. I like that the fae people were in the story. I sort of wanted more but hey their people aren't like that. The romance was good since it wasn't like l...

    Hannah West returns to the Realm of Nissera, first introduced in "Kingdom of Ash and Briars." While you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one, it is also exceptional, and clearly defines her world and the magic that permeates it. This book takes place a hundred years...

    Realm of Ruins is a really good book with a strong plot. It explained the characters so thoroughly that I did not even know that it was the second book in a series. However, I think that people should read the first book in the series to fully understand what's going on. ...

    Awesome awesome awesome book! For anyone who appreciates a book with strong female characters, sexy and intelligent men, Disney references, fantasy and magic....this is the book for you! And that is really just the tip of the iceberg. I read this book in ONE NIGHT. I could not put it d...

    Realm of Ruins took everything I loved about Kingdom of Ash and Briars--the complex characters, unique magic system, awesome antagonists, and gorgeous writing--and amped it all up. West's latest novel is dark and intense, with intricate plotting and an underdog main character you'll lo...

    Another excellent story from Nissera! Timely yet timeless; classic but approachable; familiar and fresh all at once. I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking to scratch that fantasy itch! ...

    More like 4.5. I really liked this book. Well written. ...

    As both the companion and the second book in the Nissera Chronicles, REALM OF RUINS takes place a century after the events of the first book: KINGDOM OF ASH AND BRIARS. You absolutely can pick this book up without reading the first book as the events of REALM OF RUINS vary a great deal...

    Math. Even the most complex problems have a solution. That?s why Esther is obsessed with math. Life. Not everything in life has a solution, and even if it does, life problems are not as easy to solve as math problems. Esther?s family has just moved to Truth or Consequences, New ...

    Realm of Ruins by Hannah West was sent to me by Holiday House. It was never on my radar, but I'm extremely grateful that I crossed paths with it, because it is a marvelous story. "The first kingdom he destroyed by plague, the second by vanity and decadence. The third he destroyed by...

    Rating: 4 Stars ???? Realm Of Ruins is the spin-off/companion to West's 2016 debut, Kingdom Of Ash And Briars! This YA Fantasy melds so much from action, magic, fairy tales, quests, dark powers, royalty, & so much more! If your looking for wholly unique twists on the class...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) What I loved about Realm of Ruins is that it looks about the cost of ambitions and the price of the rules when they are broken. It's almost like a mixture of Bea...

    I enjoyed most of this book, but the ending left me feeling sort of disappointed, how this big bad was swatted pretty much like a moth. I like that the fae people were in the story. I sort of wanted more but hey their people aren't like that. The romance was good since it wasn't like l...

    Hannah West returns to the Realm of Nissera, first introduced in "Kingdom of Ash and Briars." While you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one, it is also exceptional, and clearly defines her world and the magic that permeates it. This book takes place a hundred years...

    Realm of Ruins is a really good book with a strong plot. It explained the characters so thoroughly that I did not even know that it was the second book in a series. However, I think that people should read the first book in the series to fully understand what's going on. ...

    Awesome awesome awesome book! For anyone who appreciates a book with strong female characters, sexy and intelligent men, Disney references, fantasy and magic....this is the book for you! And that is really just the tip of the iceberg. I read this book in ONE NIGHT. I could not put it d...

    Realm of Ruins took everything I loved about Kingdom of Ash and Briars--the complex characters, unique magic system, awesome antagonists, and gorgeous writing--and amped it all up. West's latest novel is dark and intense, with intricate plotting and an underdog main character you'll lo...

    Another excellent story from Nissera! Timely yet timeless; classic but approachable; familiar and fresh all at once. I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking to scratch that fantasy itch! ...

    More like 4.5. I really liked this book. Well written. ...

    As both the companion and the second book in the Nissera Chronicles, REALM OF RUINS takes place a century after the events of the first book: KINGDOM OF ASH AND BRIARS. You absolutely can pick this book up without reading the first book as the events of REALM OF RUINS vary a great deal...

    Math. Even the most complex problems have a solution. That?s why Esther is obsessed with math. Life. Not everything in life has a solution, and even if it does, life problems are not as easy to solve as math problems. Esther?s family has just moved to Truth or Consequences, New ...

    Realm of Ruins by Hannah West was sent to me by Holiday House. It was never on my radar, but I'm extremely grateful that I crossed paths with it, because it is a marvelous story. "The first kingdom he destroyed by plague, the second by vanity and decadence. The third he destroyed by...

    I would call this a back story fantasy. To me this story gives you the story of how Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White came about and I absolutely loved it. Valory is our hero that puts it all into action. This story just made me go wow I can see that being the ba...

    Rating: 4 Stars ???? Realm Of Ruins is the spin-off/companion to West's 2016 debut, Kingdom Of Ash And Briars! This YA Fantasy melds so much from action, magic, fairy tales, quests, dark powers, royalty, & so much more! If your looking for wholly unique twists on the class...

    I enjoyed most of this book, but the ending left me feeling sort of disappointed, how this big bad was swatted pretty much like a moth. I like that the fae people were in the story. I sort of wanted more but hey their people aren't like that. The romance was good since it wasn't like l...

    Hannah West returns to the Realm of Nissera, first introduced in "Kingdom of Ash and Briars." While you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one, it is also exceptional, and clearly defines her world and the magic that permeates it. This book takes place a hundred years...
