“What an exciting ride this book is! The first in a four part series, Relic Master chronicles the journey of Galen and his apprentice Raffi, outlawed keepers of a demolished Order, who travel to the once great city of Tasceron to both restore Galen's power and bring hope to the scattered remains of the Order. Joined by a young spy from the governing Watch and a member of the curious Sekoi tribe, they must combat terrifying monsters - and their own self-doubt - if they hope to release their world from the dark grip of the Watch. This is a promising start to a great new adventure!”
— Amanda Hurley, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL


Welcome to Anara, a world mysteriously crumbling to devastation, where nothing is what it seems: Ancient relics emit technologically advanced powers, members of the old Order are hunted by the governing Watch yet revered by the people, and the great energy that connects all seems to also be destroying all. The only hope for the world lies in Galen, a man of the old Order and a Keeper of relics, and his sixteen-year-old apprentice, Raffi. They know of a secret relic with great power that has been hidden for centuries. As they search for it, they will be tested beyond their limits. For there are monsters-some human, some not-that also want the relic's power and will stop at nothing to get it.
