Fiction, Science Fiction

Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

I have no idea how I found the time to read this book. It’s a really stressful time for me at school and this book is quite long. But I finished it in a matter of days and I must say, it was worth it!

The New York Museum for Natural History has always been popular. But it’s about to get a lot more interesting: the directors of the museum have decided to open a massive exhibition on all sorts of hidden mysteries in the world. But as the date for the opening approaches, the museum staff are horrified to discover that there is a killer on the loose that is savagely murdering museum visitors and staff, a killer that may not even be human… The directors are firm in their decision to continue with preparations for the new exhibition. It’s up to Margo Green, a museum  researcher, to discover who (or what) is responsible for the grisly deaths – before the killer can strike again!

This book was quite good! I loved the buildup and the different perspectives of each character. The biological explanations were quite sound and the main detective was a very unique character. It felt like a mix of Sherlock Holmes with Jurassic Park – and I really enjoyed this combination. If you like Michael Crichton’s stuff or James Rollins, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. I can’t wait to read the rest of the novels in this series (did I mention it’s part of a series? Because it is. And I intend to read all of it!)!!
