The Lore of the Evermen: The Evermen Saga, Book 4 Kindle Edition
The Lord of the Night is coming. The future of civilization is at stake.
Miro is in the Imperial capital to prepare the Empire for the onslaught. He knows his homeland lies directly in the enemy's path but struggles to form the alliances he needs.
As the high lords bicker, Ella seeks Killian's help. But, amid the growing tensions, their responsibilities drive them apart, as Killian can't be seen to favor Ella's homeland.
Against a backdrop of old hurts, guilty secrets, and shaky new allegiances, people of all nations and abilities must learn to trust one another again, and form a united front against a powerful enemy intent on destroying them once and for all.
This is the fourth book in the epic Evermen Saga.
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.

Right from the 1st page, book one you are seeing the characters grow, to be fleshed out, given life, taking you and drawing you into their lives. As the story progressed through the 4 books you can't put them down. You want to turn the next page, chapter, to see what's happening. But then to towards the end of the last book. You find you don't want the story to end. You want book 5, 6,7??
Really hope James revisits the Evermen story!!
Read it!! You won't be disappointed!
Killian is torn between pledging help to Miro and the Alturans on the one hand, and protecting the Imperial Capital - the final target of the Lord of the Night - on the other. And all the houses are more interested in rebuilding after the prior war, rather than preparing for the next one.
Then the revenant army of the Lord of the Night strikes and the rest is more or less a sequence of action events, from the large epic battles on the one hand, to small unit skirmishes inbetween. This element is very well managed and the action scenes are quite gripping.
On the other hand the story development often has a deus ex machina element to it - too often there seems to be a miraculous resolution to the dire situations encountered and in that sense the books are a bit less exciting on the overall level than works by George R.R. Martin or Tom Lloyd.
Still, it is a fitting finale to the series and it came just at the time before the world starts running out of steam.
I rarely write reviews as I am a voracious reader, too busy reading, however I felt the need to comment on the inspiring heroes and infuriating villains that have drawn me in.
I hope there will be more in this series as I am very fond of Ella et al, in the meantime I shall try some of the author's other work. Well worth a read!
Honestly though this is a great series and ive thoroughly enjoyed it.
