Ruins on Stone Hill is the first book in the Heroes of Ravenford series by F.P. Spirit. The story follows a band of adventurers as they take on threats around the town of Ravenford. There are plenty of monsters – orcs, zombies, golems, etc. – to keep the band of friends busy as they try to figure out the connection between the attacks and some mysterious mages.
Ruins on Stone Hill is a really fun read. The book is full of adventure and its main characters are all loyal friends with good hearts. The tone of the book is light – thanks to the good-natured characters and constant humour – and makes for a nice change from the bleak anti-heroes which dominate so much of today’s fantasy.
I have already picked up the next two books in the series – Serpent Cult and Dark Monlith – and look forward to more adventures!
