Beneath a mountain on an uninhabited continent is said to be a fabled city, a city occupied by an ancient goblin civilization founded for only one reason—to protect and defend the Heart of Nidaar, an artifact that can harness the forces of nature as a weapon. An elite team of combat mages. Chief mage and goblin duke Tamnais Nathrach must help the guardians keep the legendary power out of the hands of a malevolent goblin brotherhood and their otherworldly allies, whatever the cost. Together with his hand-picked team—which includes elf pirate (and team demolitions expert) Phaelan Benares—Tam descends into a vast subterranean world both wondrous and terrifying, a world laid with deadly traps and filled with apex predators from another age. The countdown to the end of the world. Some secrets are meant to stay buried. When the Heart of Nidaar is accidentally awakened, and aimed at the west coast of the Seven Kingdoms, Tam and his team are in a race against time to prevent the deaths of millions. To succeed, they must confront their deepest fears, unmask their darkest secrets, and reveal their shameful pasts, testing the bonds of friendship and beyond. To fail means death for them all—and the end of all life in the Seven Kingdoms....

    Finally, a book from Tam's point of view. Always my favourite character (possibly I may be an anarchist...) Anyway, this made me very happy.

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: In a race against time Tam and his team have to get to the Heartstone and save the world.Opening Sentence: I knew that saving the world wasn’t going to be easy, but I would have appreciated fewer personnel issues.Excerpt: NoThe Review:Tam has selected his team and they have finally made it to the lost continent and are beginning their journey into the mountain. He just has to make sure his team knows that Phaelan is needed in order to complete the mission. As they get closer to the mountain and must go down underneath it, they discover the bodies of their enemies and they know that time is running out. The closer they get the more Tam begins to dream of the goblin Queen. She is warning them not to come closer.Once they are inside they must get through traps and whatever has been eating their enemies. The Heartstone is guiding them and drawing them in, but what powers does it hold and will they be able to destroy it. When Tam shakes Agata out of dream state, he realizes that the Heartstone has bonded them, in a way that the goblins recognize as deeper than marriage. Tam has not informed his team of his visions.When they realize that someone or someones are following them, Tam knows that time has run out. Will they be able to reach the Heartstone before the confrontation with their enemies? Will the Chi Nidaan accept their help? Will Tam and his team be able to save the Seven Kingdoms?I have not read any of the Raine Benares books, so I started with Treasure & Treason in order to sort of understand this world. I am not sure that it fully helped, but I did recognize a name from the SPI series and that helped me connect to these characters. I was worried that my confusion would carry over to these books, but with the focus and some back stories told in this one, I really didn’t feel so lost. That being said, after reading those two I am glad I added the Raine Benares books to my list because I love Tam. I want to go back and read more about him.I loved his interactions, and the storyline and I loved how connected her series are. In SPI they are on Earth, but here they are in the other world mentioned in those books and I love discovering this world. I think it is safe to say at this point that Lisa Shearin is becoming a must read for me. Her books are full of action, romance, fantasy and just about everything I love. Plus, I love her goblins, like words cannot describe how much I love her goblins. Gone are evil little creatures, or ugly little creatures. Her goblins are just as beautiful as the elves, and it is amazing!Notable Scene:A null and thief such as Phaelan Benares. In addition, the Khrynsani would be looking and listening for goblins. Not listening with their ears, but with their magical senses. An elf registered differently than a goblin; an elf null would register as background noise, if at all.FTC Advisory: NLA Digital LLC provided me with a copy of Ruins & Revenge. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.RUINS & REVENGE picks up right where TREASURE & TREASON ended. The two together make for a satisfying duology within the Raine Benares series, offering adventure, danger and even some hints of romance. With a cast of characters that outshines the slightly repetitive nature of the storyline, RUINS & REVENGE is a perfect conclusion to Tam's adventure.RUINS & REVENGE is not the place for a casual reader to jump into the Raine Benares series. It is clearly the second half of TREASURE & TREASON, and at times I wish they could have been one book. While I understand why they were broken into two books, it also made for some actions scenes feeling a bit superfluous - after all, how many obstacles could the team really run into? But it made for some great edge of the seat, suspenseful reading, so I wasn't too sorry about it.Tam is a great main character, though his internal monologue got to be a bit fatalistic and slightly overdramatic. However, I had similar complaints about the narration in TREASURE & TREASON, so I was mostly prepared and it wasn't as distracting or annoying as it could have been. Overall, the story is full of Shearin's trademark wit and snark, and the characters make up for any negatives I found. While Tam has always been a favorite of mine - with Phaelan a close second - the rest of the characters are multi-dimensional and wonderful to get to know.Overall, RUINS & REVENGE is definitely one worth picking up if you've read TREASURE & TREASON, and if you haven't, now's the perfect time to pick up TREASURE & TREASON, since you won't have to wait for the sequel! I can't wait to see what Shearin has in store for the crew next, and I can only hope that it involves more of Tam.Sexual content: N/A

    This picks up where Treasure and Treason left of on a cliffhanger (which I hate). Raine isn’t the centre of this pair of books. The main characters are Tam Nathratch, handsome Goblin enforcer and recovering dark magician, and Raine’s cousin Phaelan, a pirate captain with a healthy dislike of magic and a penchant for blowing things up. Tam, Phaelan and their team of combat mages must get to the Heart of Nidaar before the bad guys, the Khrynsani Goblins do or it’s the end of the world. Lisa Shearin writes good repartee, and though I’m missing Raine and her problems, I’ve enjoyed an outing with Tam and Phaelan.

    I love this series..Lisa Shearin has created a fantastic world the style of her writing makes it easy to imagine Raines world.And her Characters are so well developed any one of them could carry this series on for a long time and you would have Fresh new stories in the same world .For me it is hard to pick a favorite character they all have qualities I like.This is a must read series starting with Magic Lost,Trouble Found.The first Raine Benares book.All the books are fast paced with action and adventure with lots of drama and humor and "Snarkieness".I hope Ms. Shearin keeps writing these books I would love to read from Many more of the characters point of view.

    The latest in the Raine Benares series this one is focused on Tam and Phaelan and only mentions Raine but still a great read that furthers the series overall arc.  I really enjoy Lisa Shearin writing that features vibrant and imaginative stories, clever world-building and quirky and delightful characters. This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan

    So goodI really do love this world, and Tam, sexy beautiful Tam. Once again our brave heroes have saved the world, struck a blow against Goblin/Elf prejudice and lived to fight the Khrynsani another day. Can't wait for the next one!

    What a fun read!!Another throughly enjoyable addition to this world. Lots of action, humor, daring-do, and fun! The plot rollicks right along, the swashbuckling smash, and the buckles buckle. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens next.

    Tam and Phaelan and the rest of their group made it to the island. Now they have to contend with an enormous stone, and the civilization (or what's left of it) that protects it.

    I'm an idiot and read #9 before #8. Would likely have been better if I had read them in the proper order. Still good.

    This book was better then book 8. Which gives me hope for the rest of the series.

    I am so happy to see another book in this series. Tam has always been one of my favorite characters, and it is great to see him with his own story line. Shearin never disappoints!
