Summary

The second book in the epic Evermen Saga.

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 way 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 there. 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.

A great sequel

As the title states, Hidden Relic is a great sequel to Enchantress. I think I actually preferred this a little more. This might be due to the fact that the slowness of the first book isn't as present now we know the characters and the world has been explained.

Hidden Relic shows you a whole new area of the world Maxwell has created and a brand new people to go with it. I found this book a heck of a lot less predictable than its predecessor and, for that, I found myself finding more hours of the day to put into it.

Simon Vance does a good job of narrating again in this book; his voice seeming to fit the story and characters perfectly. His emotional range is fantastic, hitting excitement, pain, sorrow and grief almost flawlessly.

Ella and Miro's tales continue off in their own direction and you genuinely get a feel for how big the world in which the story is set is.

Excellent story and narration

The characters continue to develop nicely as they grow older and face more trials and tribulations. I was swept along with the story and care what happens to Ella and Miro and their increasing circle of friends.

A good continuation

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favourite?

This man is rapidly becoming one of my favourite narrators. He has such a good range of voices, to such an extend that I've started searching for him alone on audible. For me no higher praise exists.

Any additional comments?

I do believe that our Mr. Maxwell is an incurable romantic at heart. Really liked the second book, although did find it in places a little predictable. Have high hope for the third book which I’ve just started, this one has taken a different tack, and I think will develop the story much more than this book.

Great Series

This is one of my favorite series. There are many great characters with many great adventures tied together in one book. The first book was a little slow for me as the author laid the ground work. However it soon picked up and I couldn't put the books down!!!

feel mislead

The preview of this story never said anything about necromancers. Too much of this disgusting and dark stuff out there. I want my money back.

Great Saga

Well-imagined world with a history, religion, relics and fascinating characters. Excellent follow-up to The Enchantress. It answered the burning questions and left some things to the imagination. Lots of things to think about. Deep themes.
