    ‘Relics’ might just be my favourite Tim Lebbon novel yet! It is a book that has elements of crime, urban fantasy and even horror, and I strongly feel that ‘Relics’ is destined to become one of my favourite reads of 2017.The two main characters are Angela and Vince. Angela and Vin...

    Relics is an urban fantasy thriller, with a killer climax and some smart twists on classic myths and legends. A few more twists on tropes and characters, too, would have made it much more recommendable; as it is, it’s relatively fun, harmless pulp that most fans of fantasy and horror will proba...

    Over the last few years, authors like Mark Morris, Mike Shevdon, Tom Pollock and Liz de Jager have produced work that consistently proves that there is plenty of life left in the urban fantasy genre. The latest to add their name to this esteemed list is Tim Lebbon. Relics is the first book in a new ...

    everything felt ok to me, it wasn't fantastic in any way but i liked the premise and the writing is good. hopefully will read more of lebbons work to see if i like it more than this. urban fantasy has always been a hit or miss for my own sake and this fell kinda flat for me unfortunately....

    I'm grateful to Titan Books for an advance copy of this.I found this a refreshingly different take on urban fantasy. Yes, we're in the heart of the city, and, yes, there are mythological creatures around, but there's no magic - that died years ago - and it's largely, the "monsters" who are the victi...

    between 3 & 4 stars. I've now read a handful of books by tim lebbon, and each one I think, "this'll be the novel that launches him into to elite it genre writers". I thought that with Coldbrook, and was certain this would be the one. however this didn't quite reach the lofty requirements to launch L...

    2 stars. I was not surprised or delighted. Things were predictable and done before.I loved The Hunt by this author under the name T J Lebbon (aka Tim J Lebbon). I read that he was doing a sequel to The Hunt. This was his next published book so I bought it hoping it was as good or maybe it was the s...

    Warning: I almost didn't write this review. I dislike focusing on the negative, which is why up till now I skipped reviewing 1 star books that I finished. My disdain for this book is enough to alter that. Snark and sarcasm will ensue. This had a really nice epilogue which made me quite curious as to...

    Two years ago Tim Lebbon's The Silence was my favorite read of the year. I was already a fan of his work, and I decided to pick this book up off the new releases shelf at the library on the strength of that experience. I went into Relics totally cold. I read nothing about it, not even back cover com...
