  1. Reliquary is essentially a sequel to Relic , only better Its settings run the gamut from NY s Museum of Natural History, to the various castes of homeless and their own social strata living in and below the ancient, abandoned subway tunnels beneath Manhattan, to a wealthy woman looking to make a difference in ridding NYC of crime.The novel is a fast paced page turner with its share of twists among the action Some characters are held over from Relic while others are new The new characters are act [...]


  2. I m not sure how many times I ve read the first two books in the Pendergast series they are just that good This was an awesome followup to Relic, and I m sure I ll read both many times It s a very fast paced book, with lots of twists and turns Hard hitting the whole way through to the end If you enjoy suspense, thrills, chills, and brilliant imagery, this is one book you should be sure to pick up.


  3. The duo Preston and Child produce some of the most tautly written fiction currently available This novel written a while ago is reflective of their body of work A follow up to RELIC, this novel goes deep beneath the basement levels of New York City into the dark and often forgotten layers of subway tunnels, sewer drains and aqueducts that underlie the metropolis This geography is populated by thousands of persons who, for various reasons, shun the world uptop It is a smelly, ugly and dangerous w [...]


  4. A poorly disguised plea to acknowledge the plight of homeless, this book is too long by a half The most interesting character of this sequel FBI Det Pendergast does not appear until almost halfway through the book Up until that point, the reading is sluggish After he appears, the book is made Interesting but overall feels packed with clich after clich The final twist is delivered with little if any foreshadowing, leaving the reader feeling tricked rather than excitedly surprised.


  5. I don t know how Margo transformed from a graduate student in ethnopharmacology to a forensic physical anthropologist in 18 months and an assistant curator at the same time I guess that this is a work of fiction.The underground depths of NY are interesting If you believed the creature in the first of the Pendergast novels, I suppose you can swallow this as well The Jekyll and Hyde thing is a nice touch.Makes for a good read sort of, but after 2 numbers, I am finished with it.


  6. I enjoy most of Preston Child s novels, but this is the pits The book is supposed to be a sequel to RELIC, but it s a disgusting, stupid story, with some of the worst writing I ve read in a long time No scares, just long detailed paragraphs about manure to use a pleasant word , garbage, body parts, etc lodged in the underground of Manhattan The writing appeared to be aimed at 15 year old boys, and not grown ups The one star is generous The only decent thing in the whole book was the introduction [...]


  7. Several friends recommended the Preston Childs books, so I started out with RELIC I thoroughly enjoyed it and immediately started RELIQUARY It was equally an excellent read I was most pleased to see that several of the primary characters in RELIC were present and equally fascinating in RELIQUARY In the first book, much of the storyline involves the labyrinthine lower levels, passages and laboratories of the New York Museum of Natural History For the sequel, much of the setting takes place within [...]


  8. This is the direct sequel to another excellent novel, RELIC, in fact although i really enjoyed RELIC, i found that RELIQUARY is better.A new drug is on the streets of New York Haze is its name and death is its game People are being killed and beheaded when the haze addicts cannot get the drug any read the book to find out why FBI special agent Pendergast comes to New York to investigate with the help of his friends Dr Margo Green, Professor Frock and Lieutenant Vincent D Agosta of the New York p [...]


  9. Reliquary takes up 18 months after the events of Relic with the discovery of Pamela Wisher s bones and those of an unidentified companion Pamela is a socialite who disappeared 4 months previously Both bodies have strange teeth marks on them and are missing their heads and the companion s body has some kind of unidentifiable bone disease Lieutenant D Agosta calls in Margo Green and Professor Frock from Relic to help him identify what he has and then Agent Pendergast turns up to express his intere [...]
