Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don’t unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they’ll become the next victims.
I see Stoker and Holmes and I get excited. I love Bram Stoker, and Sherlock Holmes. So let me tell you that this book lived up to my expectations.
I thought that this book was just really well written and I love Mina Holmes character.
She was just the right amount of sassy and she has that Holmes smarts. She reminded me of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock. She had that spunk about her. She's Sherlock Holmes's niece and Mycroft Holmes's daughter. Evaline is Bram Stoker's sister.
Evaline wasn't my favorite character in the book. She was just too proper for me. I don't know, but she'll grow on me the more I get to know her. She's just one of these characters that takes time to love.
Then there is Pix, he is Evaline's man. I like Pix, he's just.... I have no words to describe him.
So the girls have be thrust together as reluctant partners by a Miss Irene Adler because she has a problem. A cult has been discovered, and two society girls have been killed. Mina and Evaline have to figure out a way to infiltrate this cult and stop them from killing anymore girls. Together these two are the perfect team, even if they don't think so. They both have problems with one another.
I would highly recommend this book. I got the second one for Christmas and I have already started reading it and it is just as good as the first one. I would totally recommend it if you like Sherlock Holmes, and Bram Stoker.
