Relics by Maer Wilson
RelicsMost of Thulu and La Fi's clients are dead. Which is perfect since their detective agency caters to the supernatural. But a simple job finding a lost locket leads to a big case tracking relics for an ancient daemon.
The daemon needs the relics to keep a dangerous portal closed. His enemy, Gabriel, wants the relics to open the portal and give his people access to a new feeding ground – Earth.
Caught on live TV, other portals begin to open and the creatures of magic return to Earth. The people of Earth are not alone, but will soon wish they were.
When Gabriel threatens their family, Thulu and La Fi's search becomes personal. The couple will need powerful help in the race to find the relics before Gabriel does. But maybe that's what ghostly friends, magical allies and daemonic clients are for.
When the creatures of myth and magic return to Earth, they're nothing like your mother's fairy tales.
Starting the story at a very suspenseful and potent moment is one of my favorite ways to be drawn into a book. It piques my interest and really adds to my want to complete the book to find out how that scene ends.
The world building and characters are in depth and well developed. Mixtures of different creatures, pixies, goblins, angels and demons. Thulu and La Fi are partners and private investigators with their current employer a demon who has hired them to find the Relics and help save the world from Angels.Both the characters and the world is incredibly imaginative and a true original piece of work.
The storytelling is layered, detailed but not to complex. A truly fantastical story that will whisk you away and highly enjoyable. I have to admit that I really felt connected to the characters and the circumstance they found themselves in. I found it exciting, humorous and sad.
Overall a great read I recommend it. 5 stars.
