In the dark underbelly of our world, there’s a black market in arcane things—living and dead. Angela Gough has been pulled into this world, making her a criminal on the run.
In London she encountered the Kin—satyrs and centaurs, Nephilim and wraiths, they are hunted and slaughtered for their body parts. Fleeing back to the United States, Angela discovers that the Kin are everywhere, and they are tired of being prey.
When her niece Sammi is struck by lightning, she is drawn toward the mysterious Folded Land, and its powerful and deadly ruler. Helped by her lover Vince, caught in the midst of a Kin uprising, Angela must locate Sammi before the girl is lost forever.

I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review.
If you like Urban Fantasy and mostly character driven stories, then this book, which is book two of the Relic Series, is for you.
This is one talented author who is comfortable writing in many genres for both adult and children. His books are packed full of action cover to cover and you won’t be able to set them down until you’ve read every last word. There’s a power struggle presented between human and Kin and I can’t wait to see where Lebbon takes this. His tone shifts in this book from what it was throughout the first, but it’s not any less engaging. He shows the darker side of a world created, one filled with blood, gore and a gruesome need for “Relics.”
The whole concept of creatures of ancient magic existing in the shadows of the human world just gives me goose-bumps. I devoured each page wanting more. This is the second book of the series and there will be a third.
The complexity of the world-building mixing ancient and new and the characters placed within this world… wow! The author’s voice is hypnotizing and his style intoxicating.
He writes with a raw intensity that is so needed in fantasy books of this caliber. He doesn’t hold punches and gives you, the reader, exactly what you need to turn the page.
I love this author and highly recommend his work to horror and fantasy readers alike!
