Summary

Meet Mulder and Scully, FBI: the agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line. Their job is to investigate the eerie unsolved mysteries the bureau wants handled quietly but quickly, before the public finds out what's really out there...and panics - the cases filed under "X".

In this ambitious and exciting X-Files adventure, Mulder and Scully fly to the Yucatán jungle to investigate a missing team of archaeologists. Their exploration leads to a strange electronic signal coming from beneath ancient ruins - a signal aimed upward, at the stars.

Awesome!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No, I loved it!!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I loved to connection to the ancient Mayan culture. . The jungle descriptions were amazing.

Which character – as performed by Patrick Lawlor – was your favorite?

Mulder is always my favorite. I love his passion for weird stuff.

Could you see Ruins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

YES!! This book would make an amazing movie!!

Any additional comments?

I really loved the tie in with one of my favorite TV shows "Ancient Aliens". It made for a fun story and drove Scully a little crazy. Great book!!

No, This is not a good X-Files Book

Three hours into the story and it is still totally boring. The narrator's overly present voice offers no feeling to the reading. It might not be entirely his fault because the story is so very, very, very slow.

Best original run x-files narrated

Conditional praise! The story itself is pretty engaging and fun, even if the spectacle at the end pushes the bounds of the in-universe a bit. Also, the issues of narration rather than full cast are still present making what would be an excellent adventure into a story that takes a little patience at times but is worthwhile!
