The Hidden Relic (The Evermen Saga Book 2) Kindle Edition
With the fate of their homeland still in jeopardy, siblings Ella and Miro must face the Primate’s evil as he discovers a new technique: a method to extract essence from human blood.
The Primate has been temporarily defeated, but his home was once inhabited by the Evermen, and their ancient secrets still remain. As the mysterious Evrin sets out to destroy everything he can, the Primate stumbles upon an ancient book that tells of a hidden relic with unfathomable power—and he will stop at nothing to find it.
Realizing the solution to defeating the Primate and saving the Empire is tied to the hidden relic, Ella, Miro, Killian, and the desert prince Ilathor must race to reach the relic before the Primate…or suffer disastrous consequences.
Published in 2014, the highly acclaimed Evermen Saga is a worldwide bestseller.
Revised edition: This edition of The Hidden Relic includes editorial revisions.
About the Author
James Maxwell grew up in the scenic Bay of Islands, New Zealand, and was educated in Australia. Devouring fantasy and science-fiction classics from an early age, his love for books translated to a passion for writing, which he began at the age of eleven.
Inspired by the natural beauty around him but also by a strong interest in history, he decided in his twenties to see the world. He relocated to London and then to Thailand, Mexico, Austria, and Malta, developing a lifelong obsession with travel. It was while living in Thailand that he seriously took up writing again, producing his first full-length novel, Enchantress, the first of four titles in his internationally bestselling Evermen Saga.
When he isn't writing or traveling, James enjoys sailing, snowboarding, classical guitar, and French cooking.

I developed empathy fatigue. I no longer gave a toss what happened, the cycles of challenge and victory were clumsy. Killian's story in particular. This apathy hit me right before the final battle and even the hook for the next installment wasn't enough to make me want to carry on. There were also "lore issues" to do with the Akari as they had a seemingly inconsistent method of controlling their "products" (trying to avoid giving a spoiler!).
If you've tried the Wheel of Time series, you'll get where I'm coming from. You can have too much of a journeying, hitting problems kind of story. I think it's missing intrigue. There's just nothing to keep me interested.
The story is strong and imaginative with enough twists and turns. The story travels well with a good pace and jumps between character cleanly so that the story flows better. If a character hints something or something happens that changes another characters situation, then we need a little suspense but we don't want to wait ten or more pages to get to it.
Good book well worth the money and time. My college tutor won't be happy though as I have been procrastinating instead of doing coursework!
The only smallest of niggles were that the location of the relic was guessable from relatively early on.. - and then there was a little bit at the end that didn't seem consistent/make sense. I don't think is in any way a spoiler, though I'm thinking you'll probably work what I'm talking about. Really enjoyed the other 99.5% of the book though!
Not quite sure how the next book will go .. but considering I've enjoyed the last two, like others, I'll be keeping an eye out.
