[King Ruin] continues the adventures and battles of Ritry and his chord. Just like the first installment the back and forth could get a bit confusing but was easier now that I know the characters. [Michael John Grist] is an incredible story teller and you feel as if you truly are there suffering through the trials with the characters. The overall theme of the book seems to be the battle of good versus evil and one mans own struggle to save his own soul. I look forward to the third installment.
