I love all of the books by this author. This is the third installment, and it just keeps getting better. Please read this author, because she grabs you from the first chapter. Start from book #1, though. The Devils Grin...I love her main character Anna, and of course who does not love Sherlock Holmes. Anna is a strong, and centered character, even when her life is in shambles. I love the fact that Sherlock is not just all facts, and numbers, and off putting. There is some of that, or it would ...more

A satisfying, but creepy, end to the Anna Kronberg series. Anna has disguised herself as a man in order to study medicine in 1890's England. She has become Dr. Anton Kronberg, renowned surgeon and bacteriologist. After a series of deaths by unexplained disease, Anna pairs up with Sherlock Holmes in order to uncover a plot by Moriarty to use germ warfare to protect England and his business interests. This series is not for the weak of heart. It is very dark, violent and creepy. Questionable moral ...more

I liked this one better than the second book. I kept waiting for Moriarty to pop up any minute, I can't fathom the super genius having been dispatched so easily, or Moran continuing his pursuit out of loyalty to a dead man. Both of these aspects took away from the plot for me, although I suppose some might find these twists less cliche. The tension between Holmes and Anna is growing and the ending caught me by surprise. Looking forward to more adventures of the good doctor and Sherlock. All in ...more

Edgy and Innovative

Annelie Wendeberg has a wonderful writing style and she never fails to keep her readers on their toes. Once again, the series took an unexpected turn in The Journey. I really enjoyed this! I am looking forward to seeing where the author takes her readers next. The Journey is book three in the Kronberg Crimes series. I’m a stickler for reading a series in order, so definitely pick up the first two before reading.

Could not put book down.

Annelie Wendeberg has written a riveting trilogy of mystery and adventure in 1890s London and the continent. Although fiction the story of Anna and Holmes is believable.

Oh Yes! I waited with such anticipation for this 3rd installment of the Kronberg series and I was not disappointed. Ms. Wendeberg has triumphed once again. I have become such a HUGE Kronberg fan that Sherlock will never again be the same without her. Thank you!

I too enjoyed this series and want to thank Ja'nell for clueing me in to this wonderful author. I hate to see it end and find that I want more of Anna and her adventures with Sherlock Holmes! Thank you to Ms. Annelie Wendeberg for one wonderfully intriguing story!

The more I read the trilogy, the more I liked it! I'm actually disappointed it ended! I want to know where "Anton" goes from here!

I liked the series very much. I only had a small problem with the last chapter of the book. It fell flat. I think an epilogue would have been nice to give the story a finished feeling.

This is a great story with great characters. The writing in this series keeps getting better and better. Can't wait for the next installment.

I really enjoy the premise behind this series, although Sherlock Holmes "purists" might be a tad upset. I think Anna Kronenberg is a fine intellectual match for SH, written from the point of view of a woman and a scientist. The character of Moriarty is incredibly evil, but his backstory is helpful with understanding why this is so.

The Journey, an Anna Kronberg mystery
by Annelie Wendeberg

The Journey picks up three days after the conclusion of "The Fall." Anna and Sherlock are traveling on foot cross country in order to avoid detection by Moran and his men. Anna is now about 5 months pregnant; still desperately unhappy about it, but beyond the time when she can choose to terminate the pregnancy. The weather is cold and wet, both of them are dirty, tired and hungry. There resources are dwindling to nothing. Anna uses the hun

While I found this entire series to be compelling, thought provoking, inspiring and well-done, be forewarned, it is dark, saddening. You turn many corners that bring on a strong desire to reverse course and choose another adventure. But I couldn't turn away. The author states that this tale was truly inspired by journals and personal items found in a house she purchased that dates back to the 1500's. I found this possibility fascinating and if true, what an amazing story of a life. Such bravery. ...more

I really liked this book as a conclusion to the previous 2 in the series. The story had lots of movement, traveling and talking. Just one reason for the title being Journey, I guess. The conversations between Anna and Sherlock were very enjoyable to read even though both of them drove me crazy sometimes. One of their best conversations was the contest of imaginations for the cause of a passer-by's foot deformity. Very clever. But they often seemed to talk past each other and frequently missed ...more

I had forgotten about this series and did not realize that the next book had been released. It was a lovely surprise.

After her escape from Moriarty, pregnant and now a murderess, she is pursued by Moran. The book covers the relentless pursuit which is brutal in its viciousness. No one escaped unharmed. The limitations of being a woman and being pregnant while trying to discover the purpose of the situation she was thrust into (of her own accord) in the first book, force her into some very diffic

I highly recommend this series. It's like riding a roller coaster, without having to take my Dramamine. Smart, sharp and so lovingly rendered to the Sherlock genre. If you are one of those readers who simply loves Sherlock and everything about his controlled mind, and even more, his attempt at control over his emotions, you will enjoy this book. Don't think that the mystery is skimpy, for it's not. It is quite in depth and so very well researched. It keeps us guessing right though but what this ...more

I was completely drawn into the story of Anna and her adventures with Sherlock from the first book "The Devil's Grin" to this 3rd book "The Journey". Having never read a Sherlock Holmes novel in my life (quite shocking, I know) I am now scavenging for books similar to this one. Oh, yes, I will go back and read all things Sherlock. I have even started watching the first season of "Elementary".
The medical details and information about germ warfare were necessary I know, but boring to me. That's th

This book was a good read. It was one of those "out there" books. Who would have thought a woman dressing as a man and getting a doctorate could happen? (back in the day when women weren't allowed to have a "man's" job). I honestly liked the first book better though. I didn't read the 2nd book in this series, but won the 3rd book in a contest so read it and enjoyed it. Thank you Ms. Wendeberg for the signed book! It was a great adventure to be a part of. Although, I don't think anyone would ever ...more

Interesting, thought provoking, story (Part 3) about a female Dr. Anna (Anton)Kronberg interacting with Sherlock Holmes but mostly this is her story. At times tender but always intelligent there was still a few sections that absolutely made me cringe. Some true terror in here as well. An Ok ending. I don't know what I was looking for but that wasn't it. Did it leave the door open for more of Anna's story? Well yes. I enjoyed all 3 volumes and would read more. Anna is definitely a different ...more

I've been enjoying Laurie R. King's Mary Russel series a little bit at a time. While written differently and containing a unique and different female main character, I found myself as absorbed and entertained by this book as I usually am by King's. The scientific descriptions were fascinating, the plot twisted, and the supporting characters well-fleshed by this, the last book in the series. A good, but short, entertaining read.

An intriguing "ending" to this trilogy. The quotes are because it didn't precisely end, but neither does a person's story until their life is extinguished, and even then... I highly recommend this series to all the brainiac, mildly whimsical, extensively curious, and absurdly observant readers out there. Looking forward to more from this author!

Loved this one, too. A period piece on bio-terrorism, and yet it works.

Very harrowing and the pacing keeps you reading.

There were a couple of things I was only so-so on in the ending. Maybe a little cliche in places as endings often are.

Very interesting character which I thought really carried out in this last book. A good thing because the big reveal of Moriarty's plan was underwhelming by this point. The last part got wrapped up very quickly at the end and left loose ends (another book?)

Der Klappentext nimmt leider schon wieder einiges vorweg, trotzdem ist "The Journey" ein spannender und würdiger dritter Teil, der wieder anders ist als seine beiden Vorgänger - und er lässt sogar noch Raum für eine Fortsetzung :).

The adventure and intrigue continue. Again you are compelled to keep reading and have a hard time putting the book down. I look for more with Anna and Sherlock and hope there is a future.

On the,run

I found all the cloak and dagger a little tiresome but would recommend it to anyone who wants to continue the journey with Anna and Sherlock Holmes. It culminates in a few breath holding moments when the villain finally finds Anna.
