As a player of the prequel game, Ring Runner: Flight of the Sages, I enjoyed seeing the universe of the game come alive in novel form. While I had seen the descriptions of some of the races in game, and of much of the tech in game, the more detailed descriptions in the book, as well as their integration into the plot, were quite fun. Said descriptions in the novel also painted a clearer picture than the ones I'd gotten from the game.
I feel that even if I hadn't played the Ring Runner game, I would have enjoyed the novel, and been curious about the preceding events in the game.
Have played the game first, I am left with certain questions still unanswered, and other questions from the game answered quite well. There's room for sequels/continuations, though I'm not sure if they're forthcoming or not.
All in all, a very enjoyable read, which I recommend for anyone who wants to find out about the adventures of a troublemaker named Exterrus Rey. Or Ex, as he prefers.
For those hoping to read a book about the character you used in the Ring Runner Game, you will be sorely disappointed because the book follows Solipso's decedent. However, there are a few pages in the book about the nameless sage which made me extremely happy.
Overall, Derelict Dreams is a good read for those who have or have not played the Ring Runner Game. It is in no way a masterpiece, but for the writer's first novel, I am truly impressed and am excited to see his next piece of work,
