Hello Nerd Herd!!!!!
As you know from time to time we will share with you some reviews or musings from the “Non Indie” world so here are my thoughts on The Carnelian Crow
Melanie V””V #NerdGirlVamp
Title: The Carnelian Crow (Stoker & Holmes, #4)
Author: Colleen Gleason
Published Date: July 11th 2017
Genre: YA Steampunk
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Ever since the debacle of the Chess Queen Enigma, Mina Holmes and Evaline Stoker have laid low, trying to settle back into their quiet lives as young ladies of London. But the Holmesian deductive abilities won’t remain dormant for long, and when Mina receives a strange package from a winged, midnight visitor, she is catapulted into a new, dangerous adventure: the search for The Carnelian Crow.
Meanwhile, Evaline has received some very disturbing news–news that will change her life forever. Along with that unpleasant knowledge is the strange disappearance of her nemesis, the disreputable pickpocket Pix.
When it becomes clear the arch-villainess the Ankh has made her next move, it will take all of Mina’s Holmesian ingenuity and Evaline’s courage and determination to stop the criminal from executing her boldest and most dangerous plan yet!
Reviewing the 4th installment is HARD, not because they book was anything other than excellent, but because I don’t want to give spoilers and pretty much everything I go to type seems to be filled with them.
Ass with all of this author’s works the descriptions are absolutely incredible, but as this installment delves a little more into the society elements I feel that they shine here maybe even a little more than normal. Keep an eye out for a light festival that made me want to travel back and visit it now!
The characters have grown so much over the series of books, something that I always look for especially in YA reads, and all I can say is I have my endgame worked out for these 2, I can only hope that the author feels the same way!
As a huge fan of the Gardella series by the same author I am ALWAYS looking for those little crossover nods, and anyone who is there with me won’t be disappointed. Book 5 cannot come soon enough ….. literally …. as I got to the end and was frantically trying to get more pages that just were not there!
An easy 5 out of 5 stars from me and a strong recommendation to start this series if you haven’t!
