Publisher's Summary

The launch of a gripping new supernatural terror trilogy by the acclaimed author of Coldbrook, The Silence, and the Alien-Predator Rage War trilogy

There's an underground black market for arcane things. Akin to the trade in rhino horns or tiger bones, this network traffics in remains of gryphons, faeries, goblins, and other fantastic creatures. 

When her fiance Vince goes missing, Angela Gough, an American criminology student, discovers he was a part of this secretive trade. It's a big-money business-shadowy, brutal, and sometimes fatal. As the trail leads her deeper into London's dark side, she crosses paths with a crime lord whose life is dedicated to collecting such relics. 

Then Angela discovers that some of these objects aren't as ancient as they seem. Some of them are fresh.

Meh

Interesting premise but fairly average delivery. While it's written well the book doesn't lend itself to a second read through.

Two dimensional characters

I read The Silence by the same author and was blown away. I found this one and hoped for an equally great experience but I was disappointed! I kept on reading anyway while hoping it would get more interesting but it never did. The characters are two dimensional, the plot is soapish and without depth. I gave up half way through.

Not one of Tim's best.

The story takes quite a while to develop and the leading female character is annoying as all get out. Other than that, I like where this is going.

Great idea, bad writing in need of strong edit

I only finished this one because I liked the idea so much. Don't bother reading.
