Publisher's Summary

Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast.

When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation. Margo must once again team up with police lieutenant D'Agosta and FBI agent Pendergast, as well as the brilliant Dr. Frock, to try and solve the puzzle. The trail soon leads deep underground, where they will face the awakening of a slumbering nightmare.

Prolong the suspense: listen to the first book, Relic.

What the Critics Say

The netherworld of New York City...proves as shuddery a setting for the authors' latest scientific monster mash as the American Museum of Natural History did for their bestselling Relic, to which this is the sequel. (Publishers Weekly)
"This should do for the New York subway system what Jaws did for Long Island beaches." (Booklist)
"Dick Hill's reading of this fascinating sequel to Relic builds the suspense and horror." (AudioFile)

    "I liked it more than the first book."

    After reading Relic I looked forward to Reliquary. I enjoyed this book even more than Relic. I recommend reading the books in order. Many characters introduced in the Relic appear in this book.

    "I love Agent Pendergast!"

    I could read anything with him in it! This was a fan and exciting sequel to Relic. It only gets 4 stars because of the change in narrator... It's hard to listen to 14 hours of Relic with certain accents and pronunciations and then go into the sequel with a completely different guy...

    "Not Bad"

    I didn't love this book but I didn't hate it, either. Same formula as the others; grusome discovery leads to a police investigation with a supernatual bent to it. Same reporter, same museum curriator, same cops. The only thing new is the narrator. Different from the usual Rene Auberjonois but different isn't bad.

    "Read the book"

    Love the story, love Pendergast. HATE Dick Hill. He is just a terrible narrator. Avoid him at all costs.

    "Very Good"

    Not as good as some of the later books in this series. Need unabridged books in the middle of this series.

    Story
    "2 ½ stars."

    I really enjoyed book 1 (Relic) but this not so much. My mind wandered frequently.

    Book 1 was a complete story about a beast who killed humans. Book 2 is about beasts who are related to the beast in book 1. Book 2 has a lot of time in underground tunnels and with the homeless. The story and characters were not as good as book 1. The people, what they did, and their motivations did not interest me.

    In an interview the author Preston commented that "RELIQUARY was probably the least successful of the "Agent Pendergast" books.”

    The audiobook narrator Dick Hill was very good.

    Genre: science fiction suspense thriller.

    "Not a Dick Hill fan"

    I have been enjoying this series and this was a good story but I did not notice that the reader was Dick Hill before I downloaded. Not sure I would have listened had I realized. Just not a fan.

    "More of the same"

    These books are all starting to sound the same to me. The stories are not different enough (from Relic to Reliquary) to interest me enough to listen to the rest of this book. I like Special Agent Pendergast and would like to see him have more presence as as does in later books. Sorry ... not for me.
