Relic Book Review
Relic - Douglas Preston,Lincoln Child

This was fun and not my normal genre. I had these audiobooks recommended by a friend and they are definitely well worth listening too. Though I have to say, if I didn't listen to it I'm not sure I would have finished reading it. The plot didn't totally grab me. The narration did. 

 

The museum is under attack but they don't know by what. After two kids die an investigation is under way. They quickly find out that what's in the museum may actually not even be human? What is attacking these people? It's up to Moriarty and his team to find out. 

 

A good book for a family car ride as it has lots of action and will keep your attention.

Blog Tour: Tempest in the Highlands (Scotish Relic Trilogy: Book 3) by May McGoldrick & Excerpt

 

E-Original published by Swerve
Publication Date: December 6, 2016
ISBN: 9781250106582
Price: $3.99

 

 

Book Description

Miranda MacDonnell is on the run. When she inherited a mysterious relic from her mother, she had no idea the dangers it would bring. Now hunted by a relentless foe who will stop at nothing to find her, she has one choice: stow away on the ship of the notorious privateer, Black Hawk.

 

Rob Hawkins, the half-English privateer known as Black Hawk, has a mission from the Tudor king to find and kill the rogue commander, Sir Ralph Evers. To complete his quest, Hawk must find Miranda, a young woman Evers is pursuing. Caught in a tempest, he is shipwrecked with a “boy” who demonstrates an uncanny ability for saving him. Cast away on the mysterious Isle of the Dead, Hawk realizes that the “boy” traveling with him is actually Miranda MacDonnell and having her means that Evers will come to him. What begins as a ploy —using her as bait—soon changes, however, as he falls in love with her.

 

Ancient forces are at work, drawing the four possessors of the relic’s power to the Isle of the Dead in the Outer Hebrides for a final battle where good must overcome the forces of evil in this spectacular finale to the Scottish Relic Trilogy.

 

 

Excerpt:

One moment, Miranda was gasping for more air. The next, her very existence depended on how close she could get to him. The touch of his lips freed her mind and made her body soar. The tension gripping her limbs and her lungs melted away in an instant. She shivered involuntarily and her arms tightened around his neck.

 

Hawk’s mouth moved back and forth over her burning lips, urging them to open. Surrendering to his silent demand, she parted her lips. She heard the groan deep in his throat as he took a fistful of her hair and his tongue plunged deep into the soft recesses of her mouth.

 

A silent thrill of desire raced through her. She’d never been kissed by a man before. But right now, all fears were forgotten. The trap in which they found themselves became trivial. Miranda allowed the rising hunger she had for him to erupt within her.

 

Lost in the seductive play of his tongue, the heat of his embrace, and his roaming hand, she responded with passion.

 

He lifted her higher in his arms and pulled her legs around his hips.

Her body ached for his touch, her heart pounded, and her mind whirled in the closeness of his embrace. Miranda gave another low moan of surrender as he deepened the kiss.

 

She didn’t know for how long they were lost in the kiss, but when he tore his mouth away, he was as breathless as she had been.

 

“This is a dangerous game we’ve started,” he said.

 

She understood what he was saying. It was impossible to not feel his erection pressing against her. Unwrapping her legs from his waist, she tried to float away, but his arm around her waist kept her close.

 

“I don’t mean to scare you off,” he said. “But you’re too beautiful, too tempting, and I’m a man.” Hawk released his hold on the wall, and they floated together. His gaze never left her face. “But I want you to know you can trust me.”

The Hidden Relic (Evermen Saga #2)
The Hidden Relic (The Evermen Saga, Book 2) - James Maxwell

Second verse same as the first, a little bit shorter and a little bit worse.

 

The writing is still plagued by the many problems I noted in book one. Even more unfortunate, the story wasn’t as engaging this time.

 

The Hidden Relic’s second book syndrome took the form of super lazy writer’s convenience that occasionally snapped the thread by which my disbelief was suspended. Key plot points seemed painfully contrived. Preposterous situations were glossed over or blatantly unexplained. I’m still enjoying the story enough to continue with the series, but that’s in spite of the significant amount of eye-rolling this book induced. I’m still optimistic the quality will improve, but if it doesn’t the story is interesting enough that I’m willing to try locking my inner pedant in a closet for the remaining books.

Relic of Sorrows by Lindsay Buroker 99 cents and on Kindle Unlimited~
Relic of Sorrows: Fallen Empire, Book 4 (Volume 4) - Lindsay A Buroker

Captain Alisa Marchenko finally has a lead on finding her daughter, but her passengers want her to take them on their quest instead. Even though the Star Nomad is her ship, they have power she cannot fight, and she finds herself with no choice but to accept another detour.

But the ancient relic they seek has the ability to destroy worlds and is coveted by many. The path leading to it is riddled with competitors and littered with the dead, and even a cyborg and a Starseer may not be strong enough to fight the obstacles in the way.

Swept up in a fate she never chose, Alisa must find a way to survive against impossible odds, knowing that if her passengers succeed, they will change the course of history—maybe not for the better.
