"Lebbon is a master of drip-feeding horror and suspense" - The Guardian on Relics.
A gripping dark fantasy from the author of The Silence, now a major film on Netflix.
There exists a secret and highly illegal trade in mythological creatures and their artifacts. Certain individuals pay fortunes for a sliver of a satyr's hoof, a gryphon's claw, a basilisk's scale, or an angel's wing. Embroiled in the hidden world of the Relics, creatures known as the Kin, Angela Gough is now on the run in the United States.
Forty years ago the town of Longford was the site of a deadly disease outbreak that wiped out the entire population. The infection was contained, the town isolated, and the valley in which it sits flooded and turned into a reservoir. The truth--that the outbreak was intentional, and not every resident of Longford died--disappeared beneath the waves.
Now the town is revealed again. The Kin have an interest in the ruins, and soon the fairy Grace and the Nephilim leader Mallian are also drawn to them. The infection has risen from beneath silent waters, and this forgotten town becomes the focus of the looming battle between humankind and the Kin.

"The long-awaited third novel of the Relic series is here....The end is nothing one expects. Of course, it isn’t really the end because it begs for another story. The Kin are now revealed to the human world, cameras have captured their images, and who knows where that knowledge will lead?" - New York Journal of Books
