Overview

The first book in the Everman Saga, packed with action and adventure.

"One of ten emerging fantasy authors you must read." - Apple iBooks, Nov 2013

Ella and her brother Miro are orphans, their parents killed long ago in the ongoing struggle against the mad Emperor.

From the day Ella witnesses an enchanter use his talents to save Miro from drowning, she knows what she wants to be. But the elite Academy of Enchanters expects tuition fees and knowledge. Determined, Ella sells flowers and studies every book she can. Meanwhile, Miro dreams of becoming one of the world's finest swordsmen, wielding his nation's powerful enchanted weapons in defense of his homeland.

A dark force rises in the east, conquering all in its path, and Miro leaves for the front. When the void Miro left is filled by Killian, a charming stranger from another land, Ella finds herself in love. But Killian has a secret, and Ella's actions will determine the fate of her brother, her homeland, and the world.

His travels influenced his writing as he spent varying amounts of time in forty countries on six continents.He wrote his first full-length novel, Enchantress, while living on an isle in Thailand and its sequel, The Hidden Relic, from a coastal town on the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.The third book in the Evermen Saga, The Path of the Storm, was written in the Austrian Alps, and he completed the fourth, The Lore of the Evermen, in Malta.When he isn't writing or traveling, James enjoys sailing, snowboarding, classical guitar, and French cooking.

    Wonderful story

    I love stories where the characters reach out from the pages and become friends almost instantly. This book does that from page 1 and doesn't let up until the final page. Don't let the length scare you...it's worth every single page.

    Fantastic book! Fresh fantasy with a new world that is easy to f

    Fantastic book! Fresh fantasy with a new world that is easy to follow and yet keeps you learning throughout the book. The characters are well developed and likable, yet they have flaws and make mistakes and learn from them in a realistic way. Don't let the length scare you, there's enough excitement to last. I never felt like things were being drawn out just to fill pages. My copy also tended to have pages mislabeled. It wasn't enough to bother me in the slightest, but it does say it has 2001 pages on the bottom of my nook, and in reality it isn't that much.

    I would compare this book to something like Lord of the Rings, but easier to read. It's full of adventure, love, lore, drama, and enough comedy to crack a smile every once in awhile. 

    The sex scenes are not explicit, and I feel are necessary to character development. The war scenes are descriptive, but not overdone, and I feel are also necessary to get the point across. I also suggest you pay attention to the map included in the beginning of the book. I referenced it several times while reading in order to understand where each character was travelling, and what they might run into in their travels. I highly recommend this book to anybody who loves good fantasy novels, and I will definitely be purchasing the other books in the series!

    Highly recommended

    This is a good one with interesting characters that grow (or regress) throughout the book. Magic develops as characters learn to use it. There are good plot twists and well described background scenes and characters. This writer knows what he's doing. Battle scenes are somewhat gory but that's necessary to the plot. I read this in one sitting, because I just HAD to see what happened next. This is first in a series and the author knows how to give a satisfying interim resolution to the book while leaving threads to future books. I'll be watching for the next one.

    Highly recommended.

    Just finished reading this book. It was very hard to put down for the 1st, 1000 pages. The characters were well developed but I felt the story kinda faltered.Also did not like hanging at the end. several characters were left un accounted and were told to get the next book for $5.99. I suppose I will have to wait for a sale.

    Surprise! a great Fantasy fiction!

    This book was on a special sale and I picked it up for almost nothing thinking it might be good. What a surprise! I could hardly put it down. A great summer read - or anytime for that matter. I've got Book Two now and love it just as much!

    Great read

    I just couldn't put it down. I thought it would take me a while to finish, but the story and its character drew me in and I finished it in less than two days! I'll definitely be reading it again.

    Very Long Science Fiction book.

    I enjoyed this book. 2000 pages. I thought maybe they would finish it but of course there is a second book. I like the character Miro the most. Don't want to give anything away but I went ahead and bought the second book.
