Publisher's Summary

The mission is simple. Escort an emissary to an intergalactic peace summit. Try not to get in the way.

Lt. Magnus and his 79th Recon Team have certainly handled worse, after all. 

But when an explosion rocks the tower and sends everyone into a panic, Magnus and his asset find themselves cut off from the rest of the team. 

Worse still, a dying alien chieftain gives them a priceless drive of intel, marking them for death. 

The mission has officially changed. 

With enemies on all sides, Magnus must do everything in his power to protect the emissary and escape the tower. There is no backup. There is no chance for failure. 

The fate of the entire galaxy now lies in the hands of a Republic Marine and a diplomat.

All they have to do is survive.

Experience the beginning of this sprawling galactic tale in this first entry to the Ruins of the Galaxy series. If you’re a fan of Star Wars, Galaxy’s Edge, or Battlestar Galactica, you'll love this military sci-fi epic.

Includes bonus Ruins of the Galaxy stories "The Night of Fire" and "Demons at War".

R.C Bray is the only good thing about this book

I had a hard time getting into this book and following along. it seemed to be all over the place. R.C Bray tried to help this mess along. I found there to be alot of similarities to Galaxy's Edge, Expiditionary Force, and Titan Born (all great books). to the point where it was like here is the homework but don't copy it too much or the teacher will find out

Famliar and slow

Enjoyable but I often had the urge to fast forward past space filling details. The story elements are VERY similar to galaxy's edge. The author might want to step outside the comfort zone a bit more. RC Bray top notch as usual.

A worthy new entry into military/SciFi genre.

A very worthy entry indeed. Though, with many of these books, the more you listen to, the more they bear striking similarities. No difference here. Some very "Galaxy Edge" references but, 8mitation in the sincerest form of flattery. Story was interesting and exciting, RC Bray was awesome, as usual. Will definitely recommend this book and series. Great start!!!

Incredible start to the series! Loved it!!

I loved this book from start to finish! The authors have created a universe that is comparable in detail and complexity to the Star Wars universe (but different in many ways). How can you make a great story even better? Have one of the best narrators in the industry narrate Ruins of the Galaxy! Looking forward to the next book in the series!!

unimaginative

Story and setting are taken from other classics. book length was inflated by giving hours of the next chapter in lue of a more in depth and complete story. But to be fair, I did have a hard time staying interested in the narrative so I may have tuned out from time to time. a real shame as I've been a huge fan of RC's narrative and this storyline didn't give him much room to shine.
