King Ruin (Ruins Sonata #2) by Michael John Grist
The sadistic Mr. Ruins is gone, swallowed by a tsunami at the edge of the floating slums, and ex-Arctic marine Ritry Goligh’s long nightmare is finally over. His family are safe, his soul is his own, and at last he can go home.
Then comes an explosion that makes no sound, but blows all his thoughts to shreds. In an instant Ritry is prey again, hunted by a power so vast he can’t even comprehend it. This is King Ruin, and before him all Rit can do is run, so far and so fast he starts to forget who and what he is.
Soon half his mind is gone, and the souls of billions are at stake. King Ruin wants the Bridge, a direct path into the minds of every living thing, and only a lost and broken Ritry Goligh can stand in his way.

King Ruin is the second novel in the Ruins Sonata trilogy. It picks up right where the first novel ended and almost immediately you are drawn into a fast paced and thrilling read.
King Ruin is stronger, smarter and more ruthless than Mr Ruins. He seeks to possess the minds of every human. To do that he needs the mind of exhausted and battle-scarred Ritry Goligh.
For me I often find that the second instalment of a trilogy is the weakest novel, but this certainly isn’t the case here. I thoroughly enjoyed Mr Ruins and King Ruin not only keeps to the same excellent standard set by the author, but it surpasses it. King Ruin is full of action, emotion, humour and suspense, and I’m really looking forward to reading the conclusion of this outstanding trilogy.
