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 16-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.

The great plot & story, as well as believable characters. I loved the good ones and hated the bad ones, just as you'd expect.
That's a toughie. But Galen & Raphie were the best, I suppose, although I enjoyed the heroine as well.
No, this is the first one.
Yes, I wanted to, but wasn't able to. But as soon as I finished the first one, I couldn't wait to get on to the next!
LOVE LISTENING TO 'YOUTH' OR 'YOUNG ADULT' books so there's very little languages and rarely any smut. In fact, I will rarely select a story unless I've already read or listened to one of their books before. I am very particular when it comes to that stuff.
