Violence of Action (Forgotten Ruin Book 3) Kindle Edition
Speed, surprise, and aggression... Hit on Jackpot is go.
The scourge of the Savage Lands, an ancient dragon allied to a gathering storm of dark forces threatening the world of Ruin, becomes the next target of the most fearsome shock troops ever conceived, prepared, and trained for total war: U.S. Army Rangers.
Deep beneath a once-fantastic ruined empire, a creature more terrible, diabolical, and malevolent than any myth ever told lies atop a vast horde of wondrous treasure and deadly magic, dreaming dreams of greed and terror. The Rangers of the Ruin will thread the dangerous trap-laden depths of a deadly desolation sinking into a foul swamp in order to get their hit on the ancient prize.
But wyrm be warned, the fight you pick with Rangers... is going to be the last fight you pick.
It’s Rangers vs. Dragon as the saga of Forgotten Ruin continues!

Great premise, but very challenging story telling for me.
But this is the Ruined Earth and the Maiar are not coming.
Instead they got Rangers from the unRuined world ten thousand years ago, and their magic forge that keeps them stocked with weapons, ammo, and other toys.
I don't think there are any spoilers, but, just in case: Spoiler Alert.
Sruf the Cruel is a huge ancient green dragon from the stars, He's possibly older than the human race. He's toppled the most powerful civilization on the Ruined Earth, the Dragon Elves, and sat for centuries, gloating, on the enormous hoard stolen from their ancient city of Tarragon. He's surrounded by thousands of slaves and minions ready to fight and die for him. The lands around Sruf bear him tribute to turn away his wrath.
Sruf was always on the Ranger's 'To-Do List' but he just PO'd them. So now the Rangers have bumped him to the top, and so this is the story of the Doom that came for Sruf the Cruel.
As a bonus there are vignettes from the fall of the pre-Ruin World.
* The plot is engaging and suspenseful. Finally emerging is the rhyme and reason behind the behaviors and motivations of the characters. The flashbacks and forwards keep the reader on one's toes, carefully reading each word, rather than to just trying to skim past the descriptions of weapons and coffee.
* The first real foray into worldbuilding in this amazing setting appears. Talker and the Rangers get to learn more history of the Ruin, and a glimpse at what the future might hold.
So, skim "Forgotten Ruin" to learn who the characters are.
Skip "Hit and Fade" just in general. You'll miss literally nothing. There is no character growth or development, no forward progress of the plot, no new information about ... well... anything.
And then sit down and look at "Violence of Action" as the real start of the series. I hope they continue with the trend started in this book.
RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!

That is all. The story telling is unique and I’m digging it so far. On to the next story in the series!
Subtracted 1 star because of length, and because I suspect the punch in the gut at the end was an attempt to write a character out of the story (who had very little time in this book despite having their whole arc hinting to this confrontation), but we'll see in book 4.
