Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Faye Longchamp, girl archaeologist, is…in charge of finding the origins of an ethnic group of people in the Alabama hills… Soon, Faye is fighting for her own life against someone who doesn’t want the secrets of the Sujosa revealed. A fascinating look at contemporary archaeology but also a twisted story of greed and its effects.” Dallas Morning News 
“Evans’ second archeological mystery is every bit as good as her debut, Artifacts…Faye makes a compelling heroine, and she’s supported by an interesting array of suspects…Transcripts of Dr. Martinez’s interviews scattered throughout the narrative provide important clues for the discerning reader.” Publishers Weekly 
“The locale is wonderfully described and beautifully etched for the reader. A compelling read that holds the reader's attention throughout.” Midwest Book Review
“Evans delivers a convincing [story] with life-sized, unique characters, not the least of whom is Faye’s Indian sidekick, Joe. The archaeological adventures are somewhat reminiscent of Tony Hillerman’s Jim Chee mysteries. While the story is complex, Relics will engage the imagination of readers attracted to unearthing the secrets of lost cultures.” School Library Journal 
“Evans combines a fascinating plot and an appealing investigator. As in Artifacts, the first in the series, the remote setting engenders an eerie sense of isolation and otherness that gives the story an extra dimension. Recommend this steadily improving series to female-sleuth fans or those who enjoy archaeology-based thrillers like Beverly Connor's Lindsay Chamberlain novels.” Booklist
