Format: Paperback
The unearthing of an ancient sacrificial site leads to a lot of ominous happenings and gruesome deaths. Relentless gore-- a person or animal is disemboweled about every thirty pages with clockwork regularity. Despite the onslaught of weird goings-on and the rash of mutilation deaths in this small town, the inhabitants do not seem unduly alarmed and, in fact, DO NOT EVEN TAKE ORDINARY PRECAUTIONS, resulting in people wandering around alone for a mysterious entity to kill them off one by one (!!!). Is this normal in Britain? I read the FORTEAN TIMES, which is full of inexplicable events, but they aren't so commonplace as to not raise an alarm, but I've never been to that country, so what do I know? The fact that mysterious stone tablets seem to have unearthly (and possibly deadly) properties does not deter an archeologist from deciphering its ancient script. There are also two or three false alarm scares, just like a bad horror movie. On the plus side, Hutson only uses the word "fusty" once...

This was the first ever book i read of Shaun's, followed by Slugs and Breeding Ground, I have to say that I am absolutely hooked on his books, this one in particular was superb to read, had some very shocking moments in it, in fact some very very very shocking moments in it. Great and I cannot wait until he brings more out!!!

I have read a number of his books, my favorite being Erebus. This one worked for because it was bleak, frightening and had a much better ending than ususal (much like Erebus.)

HASH(0xa6f4d81c) out of 5 stars Gripping March 21 2009
By marky77 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Relics is only the second book I have read by Shaun Hutson - the first being Compulsion - so I cannot compare it to his other books, but I thought that it was very good. Relics is genuinely scary in places and features truely nasty death scenes.

After a team of archaeologists uncover an ancient underground sacrificial chamber filled with childrens skulls, the novel turns into a combination of supernatural slasher (with a body coutn well into the double figures - there's a very bloody death every 30 pages or so!) and mystery whodunnit as archaeologist Kim, along with a police officer, try to figure out who is commiting the grotesque murders, and what connection it has to the Druid relics found in the underground chamber.

Very compulsive reading, I read the second half of the book in one go because I just couldn't put it down.
HASH(0xa6f4dc54) out of 5 stars Sacrifice, mutilation, stir April 23 2014
By Marcia Kidwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Druids, Celts, human sacrifice, witchcraft, and throw in some dog fighting and stir. Oh My! "Relics" is a mixture of blood curdling horror and an important archeological find that leads to mutilation and child sacrifice. Shaun Hutson keeps the story going with such grim descriptions and scenery that you just have to keep reading to find out what happens next. AND the ending was NOT what I expected. As scary as it seems after finishing the story it made me wonder what I would do if the exact facts and supposed outcomes were put in front of me.
