Ruins is book three in the Avala: Spirits of the Mindscapes series and so I do not want to spoil the plot! However here is a snippet from my review of the first book Avala: Spirits of the Mindscapes, Hope, which sets up the story for you!

“In Avala, the reader will meet many characters however our protagonist is Avala! Avala is a half-human/half-Yajiran girl who recently discovers that her planet’s beliefs are founded on lies by the Yajirans so they can keep the people of the planet in a primitive state and rule over them. This forces Avala to go on a journey to free her planet from the menacing Yajiran Empire and what unfolds is shocking, brilliant and should not be missed book lovers!”

Avala will fight her nemesis Namjila across the galaxy while she desperately tries to save her people from the oppressors of the Yajixa. It is an incredible addition to the brilliant Avala: Spirits of the Mindscapes series that had me enthralled from beginning to end and so of course shouldn’t be missed!
