    This is another book series of books I was introduced to by my late wife we were married 34 years before she passed so there were quite a few books we ended up sharing, sometimes to the surprise of each of us I introduced her to things like epic fantasy she introed me to things like, well Preston Child or Koontz I am surprised not only that I liked it them but that I decided to give it 4 stars This is a surprisingly absorbing read and the

    RelicSome thoughts.Now, this isn t really a review, simply because too much time has passed since I actually read the novel to form any objective and cohesive opinion on its literary merit What I would like to focus on is what remained with me.I m sticking to my original rating This novel is one of the few that my wife and I still discuss on a rather regular basis, even after all this time Relic ticked quite a few of the right boxes Such as

    I ll be damned This silly book turned out to be one big, over the top, cheesy, load of fun I enjoyed it quite a bit I ve read some reviews where people called The Relic a mystery horror and I guess in some ways it is but I tend to look at it as a crazy, disaster, monster film If you took The Position Adventure, threw in a furry, brain eating, velociraptor, and then had a total nincompoop in charge of the rescue mission that would be this book Yes it s that crazy
