First thoughts on The Ruin (Cormac Reilly, #1) by Dervla McTiernan The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.


Steve Maxwell (goodreadscomstevem) A brilliant captivating story and for a debut novel, excellent. Had trouble putting it down. Believable every step of the way. I am looking forward to more by Dervla.

I'm excited for #2 in the series Steve :)


Andrea | 1759 comments Just started it this afternoon. I was immediately hooked in by the prologue, I must say. Looking forward to getting stuck into it over the weekend.

Enjoy Andrea!


Carolyn | 8454 comments I loved this book too - such a great debut!


PattyMacDotComma | 2526 comments I'm just getting started on it. The author was interviewed recently and sounds just delightful, so I hope I like her book just as much.


Jenny (diggensjenny) | 768 comments I got my copy of this book this week, and I am enjoying it so far.


Icewineanne | 263 comments I’m so envious!!!
In Canada we can’t get our hands on this until July 👹

Oh that's sad :( Have you checked Book Depository?


PattyMacDotComma | 2526 comments I only just realised we can claim the author as an Aussie! (I'm sure you've already told us somewhere, Brenda). Three cheers for immigrants! I wonder if McTiernan will plot any stories in Oz.

I've read her debut now and thoroughly enjoyed cold, rainy Galway. No spoilers in my review.

Oddly here until it’s officially released, amazon doesn’t list any 3rd party deals. I can try going to BD directly but it will cost a lot more in shipping & exchange.......so I’ll just have to be patient 😡 rats......
Happy reading Brenda!

Oh bad luck :( I thought all BD orders were free shipping.... odd! I guess you're like me though and "it's not like we have nothing to read"... lol

Thanks! You too :)

Must just be us who get the free shipping. I wonder why?

It says world wide I'm sure... yep. Just googled - "millions of books with free delivery worldwide"...

Thanks for checking Brenda! BD does indeed have both editions, the one you have & our later release. This is terrific! I’m ordering it today - even though you’re absolutely right - i have more than enough to read 🤣 🤣
