    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss Four tunnels, Jack says decisively, eight of us We ll split up and see where they lead Split up Sonya asks Do you think that s a good idea This was a YA horror story, with a bit of a non ending.The characters in this were all okay, and Annie reacted appropriately when she thought that someone or something was following her she ran, but personally I wouldn t have gone exploring a [...]

    2. Who says we don t need cannibalism in YA Not me And if anyone could tackle the subject, it s Gretchen I loved this group of characters and the plot was so deliciously creepy Every time I thought I had it figured out, there would be a new reveal that would shock me Fast paced and eerie, I loved it from the very first page Huge thanks to Harper Teen and Edelweiss for providing an arc in exchange for an honest review

    3. When I was in high school, I loved horror movies My tastes have changed somewhat I m way of a wimp now but I was hoping this would be a throwback to those old school teen horror movies, like Halloween, Friday the 13th and Scream.So there s good news and bad news The good news is that wimpy, scaredy cat me didn t find this too scary I d assumed it was one of those scary stories in which a bunch of kids are trapped somewhere summer camp, abandoned asylum, etc and get picked off one by one But no [...]

    4. Ladies and gentlemen, Gretchen McNeil did it again She wrote another haunting, creepy book OK not really recommended if you are having stomach flu like me, because it is kind of gory But other than that, read this I already was looking forward to this book ever since Gretchen McNeil told the world about it on Twitter It had all the right ingredients.1 It was written by Gretchen McNeil, and I know that she can write some amazing thriller horror creepy books.2 Horror I am always looking for a new [...]

    5. I was needing a good horror novel and Relic did a great job and boy did the ending surprise me It has the makings of a good syfy movie with a group of teens who think they are untouchable You have the cocky guys, the trashy girl you always hope gets killed, the cutsy couple, the quiet one, etc They have just graduated and are wanting to do something wild with no regrets They decide to spend that time exploring an old mine that is off limits They were even told by the lake patrol to leave it alon [...]

    6. This book reads just like countless horror movies I ve watched, which at first was a good thing, but like many horror movies it ended as a big disappointment For starters the twist couldn t have been easier to see if there had been a big flashing neon sign pointing to it Word of advice to horror authors, view spoiler if your character keeps losing time and finding herself in various states of undress or has other signs or having been somewhere and conspicuously won t let people finish sentences [...]

    7. Maybe 3.5 It s a teen horror story, with a supernatural twist A perfect quick, and exciting, read for a winter s night or a holiday flight I did not figure out the plot twist, which was a nice surprise but but I m not sure how I felt about the ending It wasn t overly young adult and was a little gory Good fun

    8. This was interesting Full review soon Merged review This book has one hell of a twist I didn t see coming I was totally wrong about everything I didn t realize how much this book would get to me until a few days later Relic reminds me of a SyFy movie, I love horror Syfy movies so this was actually perfect.I loved the characters but I didn t connect with them until after I finished the book, I know that sounds really strange, it s hard to explain I really thought I knew who was doing it but was n [...]

    10. I know this is horror, and there s always going to be a layer of mystery, but I have no idea what I just read I kind of liked Annie, kind of didn t, and the same goes for Jack and the rest of the characters I kind of liked the threat and creepy murders, kind of tired of them, and the end was just odd If you love the genre, you ll probably love this I will say it s a quick read, and I like the element of the mine, but I m not sure I liked the rest.

    14. Such a fan of McNeil, but this one didn t do it for me I loved the twist towards the end saw it coming though but overall, felt it was way too slow, and than a couple of chapters and events seem unnecessary to trudge through

    15. Ten and Get Even by McNeil were relatively decent thrillers, albeit served with a heaping pile of implausibility and leaving you longing for something better Ten is a retelling of And Then There Were None, but despite being pretty freaky, I only wanted the original Get Even is a murder at a boarding school story that again, had the potential to be really good but came out marginally meh Maybe she and I just aren t meant to be, because not only was Relic a relatively weak story, but it also used [...]

    16. For Annie Kramer, the summer before college is bittersweet both a last hurrah of freedom and the last days she ll spend with her boyfriend, Jack, before they head off to different colleges So she and her friends plan one final adventure a houseboating trip on Shasta Lake, complete with booze, romance and an off limits exploration of the notorious Bull Valley Mine.The legends of mysterious lights and missing persons on Shasta Lake have been a staple of sleepovers and campouts since Annie was a k [...]

    17. Relic by Gretchen McNeil is a supernatural read Annie and her friends are graduating and planning their summer of no regrets before leaving for college in the fall They take a trip to the lake, where they venture into an old, deserted mine Somehow Annie gets separated from the rest of the group The plot thickens, becoming mysterious and supernatural People are being killed one at a time in horrific ways I give Relic 3.5 stars because the writing is done well, without grammar errors, but the sto [...]

    18. I m a fan of Gretchen McNeil s books I ve read Possess and Ten previously and also 3 59 I forgot about that one , and now Relic They remind me a lot of the Fear Street or Christopher Pike books, and they re a lot of fun I think she has a good handle on the teenage voice Her teenagers sound like teenagers, and they have the same hopes and dreams and disappointments of that particular age This one was actually my favorite of the four Her writing has improved and flows a lot better The plot had a l [...]

    19. This book was so ODD I love reading weird books that have the craziest plots but this one took it a little too far for my taste It was so ridiculous at times and I was not engrossed all that much If I hadn t been reading this with a friend, I probably would have stopped before being halfway through and not really have cared what happened in the end The ending was very sudden and not executed very well in my opinion It felt extremely rushed and unfinished even though the major question was answer [...]

    20. Read full review here readinginwonderland relic OverallI love all of Gretchen McNeil s books and this one was just as good as all of her others and its kind of like Ten The ending was great and it really threw me because I wasn t expecting it at all If you like mysteries and horrors this is a great book to read and you can definitely try to find out yourselves what s after Annie and her friends.

    21. I liked the teenage drama and sexual tension that spewed from the first quarter of this book Then, the action happened and I felt like I was being punked After reading Ten, I had expectations of a fast paced, thoughtful, young adult mystery with a side of teen drinking and romance This was really lame, in my opinion, and it gave me the sads.

    22. I really love this book It takes place in Shasta County where I live I ve been to Slaughterhouse Island, played in caverns and old mines as a kid and they were TERRIFYING, which gave this book enough authenticity that I found myself with goosebumps on than one occasion Now I m sort of freaking about the houseboat my family plans to rent this summer on Shasta lake

    23. Dark, enticing and exceptionally thrilling This book seems to be a cocktail of the classic themes age old myths, kids going out to a forbidden place for fun, and the murder that follows But this book manages to still keep you at your edge, definitely a good read.

    24. I don t want to say too much and spoil this, but I found the story entertaining and sometimes creepy I wish a little time had been spent in the mine itself, and by about halfway, I d pretty much guessed the ending Still, if you enjoy campy horror movies, you ll enjoy this.

    25. DisappointingMediocre mystery, mediocre writing Thought it would be similar to ten, which I remember being as being a fun, entertaining mystery Now I wonder if my expectations were just really low as this one just felt really phoned in Bummer.

    26. I was really disappointed with this, it wasn t all that scary or gory Thought it was going to have that 90s slasher flick vibe like Pike or Stine, and it was okay but I don t think I ll ever reread this.
