A Study in Darkness

Emma Jane Holloway

If being the niece of the master detective Sherlock Holmes affords Evelina Cooper any special privileges in Victorian London, she has yet to encounter them. In the second book of this marvelous new trilogy, she must navigate a world of paranormal fantasy, romance, and mystery all on her own (from Netgalley)

My Thoughts

This is book two of The Baskerville Affair. This was just as much fun as book one. The story has everything - steampunk, mystery, power-struggles, magic, sorcery and a bit of a love story to boot!

Evelina (Evie) is pretty much out on her own in this tale. She is learning about her magic abilities from the dark, evil Dr. Magnus. She is still caught between the love of two men, Tobias and Nick. She is trying to do spy work for one of the Steam Kings in trade for saving the life of her Uncle Sherlock.

I’m really, really enjoying this whole story line. Book two was just as fast paced and intricately woven as book one. There is a lot going on in these stories and the author does a fantastic job of keeping the reader involved. Can’t wait for more!

Many thanks to Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra, via Netgalley, for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
