      Oh the humanity the expectation murdering ugh of the dreadful sequel to the quality original Unfortunately they happen Some are a menace to the phantoms of our youthful memories others make us long for murderous Revenge on the studio that spawned it from their retched, greed dripping Jaws.Some sequels have plot acting directing so loaded with mockery needed fail that we are transformed into staunch proponents of the virtues of franchise euthanasia and some sequels are just big, bloated, ego fill [...]

      If reading Relic was the literary equivalent of eating a hot dog, reading Reliquary is like eating a chili cheese dog with extra onions it s of everything that was good and also heartburn inducing about its predecessor Higher stakes, a elaborate and ridiculous mystery, crazier science pseudo science heck, it even threw in a Scooby Doo esque villain I d have gotten away with it, too, if you meddling FBI geniuses with cloying southern accents hadn t stopped me So, chances are, if you re in the [...]

      Aloysius Xingu Leng Pendergast is generally described as being stoically aloof and eccentric, though his ineffable politeness and unerring intellect imbue him with an irresistible charm or enigmatic sense of danger if the occasion should call for it Well learned in many subjects, he converses easily with doctors, scientists, intellectuals, vagabonds, highly specialized masters of specific disciplines, and people of a wide variety of language and culture alike He is a master of psychological mani [...]

      What a fun and suspenseful book to read Fans of Relic will enjoy Reliquary All the same characters from Pendergast, Margo to D Agosta are in this sequel You ll enjoy a few new characters such as Hayward a badass woman cop for NYPD to the chief of police that s the typical narcissistic politician that makes bad decisions Woah, sounds familiar, huh hahahaIt s got a great setting for a book, the NYC tunnels This was so fascinating since it s based on facts and the community that live below New York [...]

      Eighteen months before, she had stared into the face of Mbwun, seen her reflection in its feral red eyes.First of all the cover of Reliquary is misleading I have a vague suspicion that the critter depicted is a rather innocuous and extraordinarily baboon like depiction of Mbwun, because it certainly isn t a Wrinkler It was important for me to get that off my chest, because Reliquary is the first Pendergast novel that I read out of sequence Why Well, the closing chapters of Relic and the cover ar [...]

      Enjoyable sequel to Relic it has the same fab characters and the same spooky story but this time set in the underground tunnels of New York Love all the science bits as before and just think it s a fun creepy story.To add to the hilarity I listened to this one on audio and the man talking in a girl s voice made me laugh so much and then when they were denoting a thought rather than something said aloud they used an echo effect heehee I am so childish sometimes

    7. Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* on said:

      With that tantalizing wrap up of Relic, I couldn t wait to revisit the story and characters in Reliquary I m glad the authors decided to continue the story of Mbwun right off, although it s clear after the prologue that much has happened and mutated behind the scenes.You get a return of the familiar characters, but most have changed a little, partly from the events they survived and partly from the developments which befell them as a consequence of those events Margo has rounded out to be a litt [...]

      Reliquary is to Relic what Aliens is to Alien Both are them are great books and movies and while the first book movie focuses on a single predator in a closed space, the latter focuses on multiple predators in larger space.Reliquary, while being as intense as Relic, also manages to have time for character development In addition to the gang of four we saw in Relic Pendergast, D Agosta, Margo Bill , we have new characters who also have their own unique stories.The great writing as well as the fas [...]

    9. Terry on said:

      Very fun and exicting sequel to Relic Those who enjoyed the first book would likely enjoy this follow up, which included several of the original characters The book is filled with action and science and a great, creepy setting, which is hard to believe is based on reality I enjoyed very much, and look forward to reading of the adventures of Pendergast Thanks to Ginger also, for a great buddy read

    10. Colleen on said:

      I love these books so much I m trying to reread the whole series for what is probably the fourth or fifth time before the latest book comes out in May Funny reading this again, I couldn t help but notice how little Pendergast is in this one All of the later ones focus on him much , but in the earlier ones, the strength of the book is much in the cast of characters and not one individual I like how fleshed out the world is And I give major points to both authors for giving me so many characters [...]

    11. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      I didn t care for this one quite as much as I did the first Relic Pendergast is still a good character but the story wanders a little farther into the suspension of disbelief area.There is one point in this book that disappointed me particularly, but to go into what would require a notable spoiler So, the book is still readable and enjoyable, Pendergast is still a good character aside from the Gary Stu aspects He is somewhat of a superhero but I still didn t care for it quite as much as its pred [...]

      Please let me never again read a novel about a race of mutated hoboes living underground.

    13. Quentin Wallace on said:

      Good novel, but not as good as The Relic The Relic seemed like of a classic monster story whereas this one took a different approach that I didn t think worked as well view spoiler The whole mad scientist posing as a god to the monsters in the sewer just didn t work to me, even though there at least were good explanations presented for what led to the events I just thought the first story with the wandering monster in the museum was much better than the human like monsters living as a society [...]

      MINI REVIEW A nice follow up to book one that doesn t suffer through the typical sophomoric slump Yes, the beast is back but in a totally different manner so no real spoilers there Focus upon the mole people of NYC with some interesting tidbits of American History that go back quite a ways Dialog and story plotting are particularly well done and new characters come to visit If you enjoyed the first book then you should enjoy this one as well WHEN READ July to September 2010 MY GRADE B plus to A [...]

      I really enjoyed this story Not quite as dry reading as Relic Pendergast, Margo, D Agosta and Dr Frock are part of this story too I was very surprised by who the villain was Good ending

    20. Kribu on said:

      I can t really remember exactly which problems other than slow start and somewhat lacking characterisation I had with Relic, but whatever they were, I didn t have them with this one, which is or less a direct sequel to the first book, taking place eighteen months later.Frankly, by some other scale some vague scale of literary goodness or whatever, this wouldn t be a four star book, but I did really like it, soSlowish start again, but this time it didn t really bother me I even enjoyed almost ev [...]

    21. John on said:

      Here s a sequel I didn t expect much from, having read the original Relic twelve or so years ago Not that the original story wasn t excellent, because it was it s just that the awful movie version stuck with me and drained away any excitement toward revisiting those characters Surprisingly, despite having had none of the fanfare of Relic, Reliquary was a solid, down and dirty action thriller Sure, it s much too long, but, like many a Stephen King novel, it s all written so well that you can t re [...]

    22. aPriL does feral sometimes on said:

      Relic, 1 in the FBI agent Pendergast series, must be read first before Reliquary , 2 in the series I do not want to reveal anything else about Reliquary because the novel will be spoiled by a review which discusses it too much The book continues 18 months after the events introduced in Relic It concludes Relic s plot Maybe.

    23. Gillian Brownlee on said:

      An excellent sequel Lincoln and Child are really good at keeping the plot fast moving and unpredictable, while keeping the fascinating sciencey bits in there I can t wait to read of Pendergast

    24. Natasa on said:

      This book is equally entertaining as the first one, but still one start below It doesn t mean I didn t thoroughly enjoy it though

    25. Shainlock on said:

      4.5 Just in case, may be spoilers minor ones Though I think they are in the synopsis on the book This book was scary, or gave me a few shivers but for entirely different reasons than Relic This one took place mostly under the city of NY and again in the NY Museum of Natural History I ve always loved hearing about the Paris catacombs, cenot s and cave systems so this was a bonus mystery underworld waiting to be discovered The thing is, there are these tunnels, with all of these homeless vets, men [...]

      A year and a half after the events that brought Pendergast, Vincent D Agosta, Margo Green, William Smithback together, police divers stumble into two headless skeletons One of them is completely deformed The details of the case are enough for D Agosta asks for Margo s help This story is built upon the previous so even if it could be read as a standalone, it s better to read Relic first I was beginning to think that Pendergast won t appear at all since he enters a quarter into the story.The chara [...]
