Heather Terrell worked as a commercial litigator in New York City for over ten years, but she has always been obsessed with myth, lore, and the gap between history and the truth. This preoccupation has led to several loosely factual historical novels (The Chrysalis, The Map Thief, Brigid of Kildare) and the pure-lore Fallen Angel series. Relic is the first installment of The Books of Eva series. She lives in Pittsburgh with her family. Visit her at www.heatherterrell.com.
Chronicle: Before the Books of Eva (The Books of Eva 0)by Heather Terrell
Each year, the finest Gallants in New North embark on the Testing, a harrowing rite of passage through the frozen wastelands to recover Relics, artifacts from the evil time before the Healing. About these Relics the Testors/b>
The prequel to RELIC: The Books of Eva I, introducing New North, a medieval society built from the frozen wreckage of our own world.
Each year, the finest Gallants in New North embark on the Testing, a harrowing rite of passage through the frozen wastelands to recover Relics, artifacts from the evil time before the Healing. About these Relics the Testors construct their Chronicles, illustrating mankind’s depravity, his Vanity, his love of Tech, his sins too numerous to count. All true Chronicles are collected and made part of the Lex’s Holy Truths, year by year.
The Chronicle. Nothing is more vital to the resolve of the inhabitants of the New North, the last inhabitants of an Earth flooded by the Healing. But not all Chronicles are deemed True. And not all Testors are Gallants. One year there was a Maiden, Madeline, the first but not the last. Braving the perils of the Testing, she discovered a Relic that, if Chronicled, would be the New North’s downfall...

A fascinating prequel; I can't wait for the full book!
1 star I only read 30 of 109 pages and could not figure out what the story is about. It rambles no hint what the theme of the story is. I understand the symbolism of Apple and how we are very self centered but what is the purpose of this story? If this is the prequel it has not made want to finish the prequel or buy the book. I need a pre-presequel to understand this story. Cannot recommend - thankfully it was a free friday selection, if paid any money I'd be asking for my money back. Definitely deleting from library
