Description
There's an underground black market for arcane things. Akin to the trade in rhino horns or tigers' bones, this network traffics in remains of gryphons, faeries, goblins, and other fantastic creatures.
When her fiance Vince goes missing Angela Gough, an American criminology student, discovers that he was a part of this secretive trade. It's a big-money business--shadowy, brutal, and sometimes fatal. As the trail leads her deeper into London's dark side, she crosses paths with a crime lord whose life is dedicated to collecting such relics.
Then Angela discovers that some of these objects aren't as ancient as they seem. Some of them are fresh.

Gripping supernatural terror launching a new trilogy by the acclaimed author of Coldbrook ("distinct, unique, and absorbing"), The Silence ("truly addictive"), and the Alien-Predator "Rage War.

"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 bestselling author of The Bone Labyrinth

"A magical, perilous drama full of characters who live and breathe, darkness you can feel..."--Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat

"Tim Lebbon is an immense talent."--Joe R. Lansdale, creator of Hap and Leonard
