Description

"Lebbon is a master of drip-feeding horror and suspense" - The Guardian on Relics

Beneath the surface of our world, mythological creatures and their artifacts still exist-corrupt people pay fortunes for a sliver of dragon bone, a basilisk's scale, or an angel's wing. Angela Gough is an American criminology student in London whose fiance Vince disappears, and her investigation leads her into a black market specializing in arcane relics. She meets Mary Rock, a criminal of mythic status who also wants to find Vince... to kill him. Angela and a growing team of adventurers must stop this horrific trade, yet they face a growing menace as the hunted creatures begin to fight back.

Review Text

"Tim Lebbon's RELICS opens a darkly beautiful glimpse into another world, one lurking in the shadows, hovering at the corner of the eye. If Anne Rice and Clive Barker had written a story together, it might have looked something like this novel: richly imagined, fantastical, yet grounded in the grit and reality of modern-day London. I look forward to the wonders and terrors yet to come."
-James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Bone Labyrinth

"The first literary hit of the new year has been born." "Breathtaking"

"In Relics, Tim Lebbon has created yet another wonderful world for readers to lose themselves in, one which will likely remind them of both Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker, yet speeding them along with the thrilling pace of James Rollins or John Connelly. Lebbon's writing, as always, seduces the reader, inviting them into his imagination, while they find themselves immersed in the fantastic, horrific roller-coaster ride which ends too soon. Thankfully, Relics will have two sequels to complete the journey. Highly recommended. If you weren't a fan of Tim Lebbon before, this will likely be the novel to change your mind. - Cemetary Dance Magazine

"Relics puts all of his storytelling skills to use...bright, flashy, and determined, with a breakneck ending that almost guarantees this isn't the last time we'll venture beneath the suburbs of London." Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi blog review

"fans of Lebbon will want to pick this one up." - Booklist
The Grim Reader
"I strongly feel that 'Relics' is destined to become one of my favourite reads of 2017."
