Overview

Sherlock's niece and Bram's sister in their fifth and final adventure

"Gleason has vamped up the familiar world of Holmes and Watson...to paranormally exhilarating effect!" –The New York Times

It's a cold, blustery day in January of 1890 when Mina Holmes receives an invitation to Evaline Stoker's wedding. The two young women—partners and occasionally friends—haven't spoken for nearly two months, since the events at the Carnelian Crow.

Shocked, Mina is still looking at the invitation when constables from Scotland Yard begin pounding on her front door. They've arrived to arrest her for the murder of a man she's never even heard of.

Meanwhile, Evaline has her hands full with wedding plans (boring) and an overbearing sister who wants to manage her every move—including a dizzying array of social activities. In the midst of all this, she receives an invitation to visit Lady Isabella Cosgrove-Pitt, a most villainous woman.

With Pix in jail, Mina being hunted by Scotland Yard, and Evaline dining with the murderous Lady Isabella what more can possibly go wrong?

Plenty. And when the mysterious black zeppelin appears once again in the night sky, things are about to get even more dangerous for Miss Stoker and Miss Holmes.

I loved this final installment of the Stoker & Holmes series! There were so many questions to answer and as the story progressed, even more mysteries materialized. Colleen Gleason did a great job of revealing bit by bit how each of the main characters (both the villains and the heroes) have played a part in the events of the whole series. There are so many surprises, but the story is wrapped up in a satisfying way, with just a hint of new adventures to come. I envy those who are just finding the series and can binge it in one sitting! The descriptions of the costumes for the masquerade ball and the many gadgets of the alternate Victorian London allowed me to picture the fashions and mechanisms vividly. Even the descriptions of the fanciful foods had me craving a crab claw! I loved that we got to see our couples dance around their romantic issues. It was typical Mina and Evaline that they could see clearly how the other's gentleman friend was totally in love but were unable to see it in their own romantic interest. And while there was a little more romance, since the characters all knew each other better and were a little older, it was all still appropriate for an adolescent/young adult audience. Action, intrigue, romance, steampunk, and vampires--what more could you want?
