Yes, my own book, but it is the work of decades, and I do happen to be rather fond of it.

AAAAH so exciting! Not only was it hard to put down, but I was dazzled by the atmosphere (historical details, description) and the characterization. Also, as I mentioned in a previous update, it was just plain fun to read a young Sherlock. So serious, but also sometimes inevitably boyish. ^^ (Dare I say "adorably"?) Morrigan was also a highly sympathetic character--clever but vulnerable, and full of heart. Definitely recommend this!

Very well written...

After reading the forward, I was hooked. The story itself started a little slow, but it wasn't enough for me to put down. Actually, I didn't put it down -- I read straight through the night. I am looking forward to reading about the adventures of Morrigan Holmes and the others.

Maybe because I am such a fan of Sherlock Holmes, I loved this story. Morrigan Holmes is just as interesting as Sherlock and this story will grab you and pull you into the era and the intrigue. When I read a story like this, I realize how much better our lives today because I know how stark the class contrast was and how poorly women were treated. This vivid reminder is just one of the reasons I loved this book. Another is that is it not just a copy of Sir Arthur's style. And the mysterious note ...more
