    The premise of this book is sneaky cool.A small crew of young idiots kidnap a wealthy man s son without a serious plan, so they end up stranded in the woods with their prey with nothing else to do than beat on him and turn against one another Clich , you say You might be rightEXCCCEEEPPPT for a clever twist thethe crew beats up young Edric and pumps drugs into his system, thehaunted he becomes by a creature that turns him into a violent and resourceful psychopath himself Ano The premise of this book is sneaky cool.A small crew of young idiots kidnap a wealthy man s son without a serious plan, so they end up stranded in the woods with their prey with nothing else to do than beat on him and turn against one another Clich , you say You might be rightEXCCCEEEPPPT for a clever twist thethe crew beats up young Edric and pumps drugs into his system, thehaunted he becomes by a creature that turns him into a violent and resourceful psychopath himself Another thing that makes AMONG THE RUINS really cool is that it features a group of young men acting out on their tough guy fantasies They think they re smarter than the system, they see themselves as predators until they get too far into the jungle They re not boring, hopeless cons, which I appreciated By making his protagonists a little thick between the ears and his wealthy hostage nuanced and believable, Stephen Williams muddled the lines of morals which I can appreciate too.Sure, the execution gets a little shoddy at times The dialogue is always overdoing the exposition a little Asclepius tells Edric I m molding you for my own purpose about 100 pages into him molding Edric for his own purpose Edric s dreams are a little conveniently cool Stuff like that It wasn t to a point where it was unpleasant or anything, though AMONG THE RUINS is worth a try, beautiful people Stephen Williams is an intriguing new talent Make sure to add him to your lists
