Rozum’s work on The X-Files is generally quite consistent and occasionally even impressive. But it seldom seems ambitious or exciting. Under Petrucha, the tie-in comic carved out its own space that intersected with the parent show. Under Rozum, the comic book seems to do nothing but skirt the margins. It should be noted that there are good stories under Rozum’s tenure. His three-part Remote Control is probably the best story in this stretch of the title, even if it does feel a little safe and familiar  . John Rozum’s run on The X-Files is competent. It manages to satisfy a lot of the requirements imposed upon him, while still telling stories that (mostly) work.

As an X-files tv series fan,
I wasnt sure how i would like
The book.I purchased the kindle
Addition with no problems with
Download or Quality of copy.
Being intetsested in archeology
And south american history,i found
The story line entertaining.Some parts
seem to ramble on while the writer was
Describing differant things.all n all,i lked
The book,the story,and how it twisted around
The X-file genre.
In "The X-Files: Project Aquarius", Stefan Petrucha and Charles Adlard resolve the Aquarius conspiracy they originated in "Firebird". Though a gripping story that makes better use of Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully than the first volume, "Project Aquarius" does not offer as threatening a conspiracy as that of The X-Files television series. Fun for a tie-in work with elements that will delight long-time fans, but the original material clearly outshines it.
As I write, forty of sixty-seven readers have given this book five stars. I am sorry, but I have just finished reading it, and at least for me it does not come close to being a five-star book.

Here are some books I have recently read and that I think deserve five stars: "Tigana" (Guy Gavriel Kay), "A World Undone" (G. J. Meyer), "The Dreaming Void" (Peter F. Hamilton), and The Farseer Trilogy (actually three books by Robin Hobb, though each one deserves five stars). I have read many other five-star books, but these are recent reads that I remember well and can easily compare to Kevin J. Anderson's "Ruins." Please note that "The Dreaming Void" is part of a trilogy and that "The Evolutionary Void," the third volume, is not due to be released until August 31, 2010.

Recent four-star novels: "The Empty Chair" (Jeffrey Deaver), "Berserker Kill" (Fred Saberhagen), "The Sixth Book of Lost Swords: Mindsword's Story" (Fred Saberhagen), "The Messenger" (Daniel Silva)

Recent three-star novel: "Seven of Nine" (a Star Trek Voyager novel)

As you might expect from a pulpish franchise novel, "Ruins" is short and to the point. You are taken on an adventure with Mulder and Scully to Mayan ruins in Yucatán. Being interested in the X-Files, you are probably interested in things like villains, monsters, and aliens. In that respect, maybe "Ruins" satisfies. Though the story has tragedy, it has a good ending.

What's my beef with it? Though it is okay--at least I finished it--it has too many shortcomings to get five stars. Here are some of its shortcomings:

1. Shallow characterizations: In a 264-page novel, space is limited. You get a basic picture of supporting characters Cassandra, Aguilar, Rubicon, Barreio, and Major Jakes but you don't spend much time with them. You don't get a taste of the bread of life that you get from characters in Kay's "Tigana" or Hobb's Farseer Trilogy.

2. Simple plot: The story is straightforward and unadorned with twists, turns, and surprises. It is the opposite of epic.

3. Gratuitous Levity: Mulder is a veteran of perilous adventures. So maybe it's reasonable that he makes quips during moments of peril. But Cassandra is just a humble archaeologist, and she should not be making quips during such moments. Also, most of Mulder's quips were beneath him. They were flat. Maybe I should excuse Anderson, though. I can't expect him to have Mulder's IQ. Also, near the very end, a talk show is on television. To avoid spoiling the story, I won't reveal the subject of the talk show, but I will say that it was inappropriate. Anderson was probably trying to be humorous.

4. Style: Anderson made some unnecessary descriptions and some repetitive descriptions. He uses too many adjectives.
It's a typical X-Files.
This book was not well thought out. Muldar's jokes are made without regard to the urgency of the situation. If you and your partner were standing alone at night in a spooky ghost city and armed soldiers appeared out of nowhere, would you crack a joke? If the U.S. military needed to blow up a pyramid would they attack it with a mortar? Would that even be enough? The firefight scene lacked realism. If you were the head of a small unit in a firefight against a much larger force and some FBI woman started lecturing you while your men died, would order her to her tent and stand guard outside?
Classic X Files monster-of-the-week double episode story. Five stars if you already know the X world, but probably only a three if you don't already know these characters and their back stories.
First of all, Mulder and Scully are not in the book very much until about 2/3 of the way through. The story mostly follows various criminals and government officials in the Yucatan. For people interested in some descriptions and esoteric words native to that geographical region, some parts might prove interesting. Other readers will wonder why the story is not moving, and where are Mulder and Scully.

As other critics of this book point out, when they are in it, Mulder's incessant wisecracks in this book are so out of place, disjointed from both the character and even the scenes in which they are spoken. Mulder occasionally would crack a sarcastic quip in the show. This book has him line after line after line after line trying to say something funny, no matter the situation. Scully is one-dimensional. I can't remember much of her medical analysis in this story at all. The chemistry between Mulder and Scully playing off each other's belief/skepticism is almost entirely absent--just a line or two that doesn't really come into play. The dialogue is sometimes ridiculous. For instance, during a huge gunfight in the middle of the jungle, a guerilla thug shouts from his concealed place in the trees: "Your defiance of our laws and our borders is against all international treaties." Awkward lines like that pull you out of the story and remind you that you're reading a book by an author.

Way too much of the story is what characters are thinking, and it's often uninteresting. Usually, a story should reveal what the characters are thinking with less explicit descriptions of their thoughts, and more active description of what they say and do to reveal their sentiments.

The ebook version doesn't even have the cool cover. It's some generic default "cover" with clip art of a book and the title.

It's a fairly easy read, and some of the setting is decent, and there's some remotely interesting stuff about artifacts or such, but that's about all I can say for this book. Disappointing for X-Files fans. All the other novels I've read were better (Goblins, Whirlwind, Skin, and even Ground Zero by Anderson were all better as I recall).
