A trip through time that is unbelievably awesome!

I don’t think I’ve read a book in quite some time this involved and intense with plot twists and different elements… elements that totally rocked. Besides the time travel / time dimension aspects, you have the core involvement of the paranormal and fantasy with the zombie-like ghost army, fae, witches, gods, and magic. That alone would sell me on the story, then Ms. Rider introduced the 22nd century with its cybernetically enhanced survivors of th

This was the kind of book where I would put it down and still find myself thinking about it throughout the day. The story line is fairly complex--there's a lot going on--and there is a large cast of characters, but Tess does such a good job creating dynamic profiles of them all, that I never found myself saying, “Wait, who’s that?” Bring me to Ruin was refreshingly unique to me because it was a little Sci-Fi/Time Travel, a little Fantasy (Evil Fae!), part action, part romance with this apocalypt ...more

When I started the book, I wasn’t sure on where it would lead. By the end of the story, I was completely blown away. The love story between Thea and the General was amazing. To think that one’s soulmate throughout all of the timelines would show that love can exist between two people despite the fracturing of time brought happy tears to my eyes as I read the final pages. The overall plot had my imagination engaged page after page.

During the battle scenes, I was able to imagine the different unde

Being this is the first I have read from Tess Rider it pulled me in all directions. There is paranormal which I love in this book then then is science fiction thar just made me want to give up. A lot of tech babble which at times seemed too much yet in a way is important in the book. I felt for Thea in her pain and heartache yet I rooted more for the General. These two at times completed each other and also seemed to bash in every turn. Have to applaud Tess
