Full disclosure I like Edward Cox We re friendly online and I was lucky enough to meet him last year in Brighton The synopsis for his debut The Relic Guild sounded great but you never know right Thus it was with a bit of trepidation that I started reading Ed s novel because what if I didn t like it Well I m pleased and relieved to say that while I had some issues with the narrative The Relic Guild didn t disappoint and on the whole I had a great time with the storySo let s just start off with the issues I had These were mostly centred around the world building and the lack of a map I know how cliche to whine about the lack of a map but in this case it would have really helped me because I spent a large part of the novel just having trouble figuring out where I was and visualising how Labrys Town looked I couldn t get to grips with the scale of the town and its surrounding labyrinth and though we do get some sense of the numbers and size of this universe about a third of the way in I kept running up against how to visualise my surroundings There is magic but also modern technology in the form of magic powered pistols trams reflector helmet and CCTV observation yet society and the rest of their surroundings don t feel modern they feel like a renaissance era setting It was only once I decided to just go with it and had some good chunks of reading time to get stuck into the narrative that I really got immersed in the story enough to not worry about how I should see it in my head and just follow the charactersThe story is told in two timelines one during the Genii war and one set forty years after In both timelines the central characters were young women Clara in the present timeline is a new beginning for the Relic Guild and is our way into this mysterious organisation while Marney is our window onto the past I loved both of them for different reasons Clara is very much the newbie drawn into the Guild and trying to find her feet and learning to accept her power Hers is very much a coming of age story while Marney already knows these things If Clara is an apprentice Guild agent Marney is at least a journeyman Marney s story is far about figuring out why the Guild does what it does and how she fits within that missionThere is some overlap between the agents we see in the two timelines notably Samuel Van Bam I m sorry but that name just makes me giggle and Hamir I found it fascinating to see them in these two incarnations while it was a great way to get to know them better it also created uestions about how they ended up as they did There are several agents we do not encounter in the present the most important of which is Marney s mentor Denton I really liked this gentle kind old man and the interaction between him and MarneyThe Relic Guild s plot is well constructed I loved how the past timeline informed the current allowing the reader to understand what is happening along with Samuel and Van Bam but before Clara I found both timelines eually compelling They both centre on the same mystery but where in Marney s time we start with the uestion of who the culprit was in Clara s time we know who the culprit is it just isn t clear what he s doing exactly In Marney s time they are trying to stop a war while in the present they just might start one if they don t stop a catastrophe from happeningI enjoyed The Relic Guild tremendously The characters were wonderful and their stories compelling Cox leaves both timelines on a cliffhanger and with plenty of uestions about our characters left unanswered Such as what did Marney implant in Clara s mind What happened between Marney and Van Bam How did the Genii war truly end and who is on the other side of the portal I can t wait to crack open the next book and find answers to these uestions And maybe just maybe I ll also get my map With The Relic Guild Cox delivers a strong debut and I look forward to reading of his writing Help My Boyfriend's an Alien is forbidden Magic will save usIt was said the Labyrinth had once been the great meeting place a sprawling city at the heart of an endless maze where a million humans hosted the Houses of the Aelfir The Aelfir who had brought trade and riches and a future full of promise But when the Thaumaturgists overlords of human and Aelfir alike went to war everything was ruined and the Labyrinth became an abandoned forbidden zone where humans.
