More About A Study in Darkness by Emma Jane Holloway
 
 
 
Overview
When a bomb goes off at 221B Baker Street, Evelina Cooper is thrown into her uncle Sherlock s world of mystery and murder. But just when she thought it was safe to return to the ballroom, old, new, and even dead enemies are clamoring for a place on her dance card.
Before Evelina s even unpacked her gowns for a country house party, an indiscretion puts her in the power of the ruthless Gold King, who recruits her as his spy. He knows her disreputable past and exiles her to the rank alleyways of Whitechapel with orders to unmask his foe.
As danger mounts, Evelina struggles between hiding her illegal magic and succumbing to the darker aspects of her power. One path keeps her secure; the other keeps her alive. For rebellion is brewing, a sorcerer wants her soul, and no one can protect her in the hunting grounds of Jack the Ripper.
Praise for Emma Jane Holloway s A Study in Silks

This book has just about everything: magic, machines, mystery, mayhem, and all the danger one expects when people s loves and fears collide. I can t wait to return to the world of Evelina Cooper Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles
As Sherlock Holmes s niece, investigating murder while navigating the complicated shoals of Society and romance in an alternate Victorian England, Evelina Cooper is a charming addition to the canon. Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author of the Kushiel s Legacy series

Holloway takes us for quite a ride, as her plot snakes through an alternate Victorian England full of intrigue, romance, murder, and tiny sandwiches. Full of both thrills and frills. Nicole Peeler, author of the Jane True series
A Study in Silks is a charming, adventurous ride with a heroine who is both clever and talented. The brushes with the Sherlock Holmes mythos only add to the fun of this tale, and readers are bound to fall in love with Evelina and the London she inhabits. Philippa Ballantine, author of Geist

In A Study in Silks, Emma Jane Holloway has created a wonderful reimagining of the Sherlock Holmes mythos set in a late-Victorian Britain ruled by nefarious industrial titans called steam barons. Holloway s clever writing, attention to detail, and sublime characters forge a fascinating world that combines brass-plated steampunk technology with magic. By turns a coming-of-age story, a gas-lamp thriller, and a whimsical magical fantasy, A Study in Silks is the premiere novel of an author to watch. Susan Griffith, author of the Vampire Empire series
Holloway stuffs her adventure with an abundance of characters and ideas and fills her heroine with talents and graces, all within a fun, brisk narrative. Publishers Weekly

Splendid . . . The characters are thoroughly charming and the worldbuilding is first-rate. RT Book Reviews (four stars)"
