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.

On the other side, Miro, Ella, Killian, and Amber each must make their own sacrifices and play their own roles if they are to stop the Primate before all is lost.
This book is much like the first one in that the pacing is quick, the world building is very solid, and the characters are well developed (and continue to develop throughout the story). These are the first books that I’ve read from Maxwell, but I can certainly see why he’s such a popular author. Both of these first two books have been extremely well done. There is a circumstance or situation here or there that was settled a little too conveniently or a solution that presented itself at just the right moment, but that’s forgivable considering how good the rest of the story is. Two books in, I wouldn’t call the Evermen Saga a masterwork, but I would say that it’s certainly been a fun ride that is hard to put down. With this one Maxwell has guaranteed that I’ll finish the series and in all likelihood, read his other series as well. Another great effort and most definitely worth the read.
Hope is such a small word but yet is a very powerful one as well and Maxwell also used and weaved the light of hope through the forces in strong ways that you may find yourself gripping your book or bouncing your legs on the edge of your seat as you read. The pictures painted throughout were masterfully done and one that carried me from the beginning to the end and Now am ready for their next chapter......

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!
Only Tolkien has compelled that kind of response from me.
I await the August release of the third instalment of James Maxwell's other series with some impatience.
This author is a serious talent!
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.
