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.

    Imagine, you’re one of the last in your kind. And all you can do is hide for the rest of your life, just to keep the relic out of the wrong hands. A conflict in this book (the protagonist) relic master Galen Harn is being hunted by antagonist, the Watch. The Watch is a group who wants all the relics to themselves. With Raffi by his side,The turning point is when they are captured by the Order. All the order wants is gold. Another conflict is when the order makes a deal with Galen and Raffi. They could go to Sekoi in Tascoron and get the relic back or they could stay there. This Book takes place in the fictional land of Anara in the early 1700s. This book is called the Relic Master book one, The Dark City by Cathrine Fisher. I recommend this book to those who like fantasy, magic and violence

        Imagine you’re the few left of your kind- hiding for as long as you live- to keep the relic safe. In the this book Relic Master The Dark City by Catherine Fisher you’re a keeper of the relics. You have a third eye that has special powers but only use it when necessary. It takes place in Anara. Its time period is in the past/mid 1700’s. The protagonist is a young boy named Raffi. He is a keeper of the relics, and his master Galen is also a keeper. The antagonist is The Watch, they are the people that hunt the keepers and want all the relics to themselves. Another conflict in the story is the order. All the order wants is gold, but something bad happens with Raffi and Galen when they come across with the order. Turning point. They are captured by the order. And they have to make a choice. They are asked to go and get the Sekoi in Tasceron. And in return they get their relic back, or they can stay here to root. What will they choose? And why. I recommend this book to readers who like mystery violence and fantasy. WARNING- This book may be inappropriate and confusing for younger readers.
