Evelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes, is poised to enjoy her first Season in London Society. But there's a murderer to deal withnot to mention missing automatons, a sorcerer, and a talking mouse. In a Victorian era ruled by a council of ruthless steam barons, mechanical power is the real monarch and sorcery the demon enemy of the Empire. Nevertheless, the most coveted weapon is magic that can run machinessomething Evelina has secretly mastered. But rather than making her fortune, her special talents could mean death or an eternity as a guest of Her Majesty's secret laboratories. What's a polite young lady to do but mind her manners and pray she's never found out? But then there's that murder. As Sherlock Holmes's niece, Evelina should be able to find the answers, but she has a lot to learn. And the first decision she has to make is whether to trust the handsome, clever rake who makes her breath come faster, or the dashing trick rider who would dare anything for her if she would only just ask.Advance praise for Emma Jane Holloway's Evelina Cooper novels ';Sherlock Holmes's niece Evelina Cooper is a charming addition to the canon.'Jacqueline Carey, on A Study in Silks ';Quite a ride through an alternate Victorian England, full of thrills and frills.'Nicole Peeler, on A Study in Darkness ';Magic, machines, mystery, and mayhem: This book has just about everything.'Kevin Hearne, on A Study in AshesFrom the Paperback edition

Descrizione libro Del Rey Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 172 x 106 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Evelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes, is poised to enjoy her first Season in London Society. But there s a murderer to deal with not to mention missing automatons, a sorcerer, and a talking mouse. In a Victorian era ruled by a council of ruthless steam barons, mechanical power is the real monarch and sorcery the demon enemy of the Empire. Nevertheless, the most coveted weapon is magic that can run machines something Evelina has secretly mastered. But rather than making her fortune, her special talents could mean death or an eternity as a guest of Her Majesty s secret laboratories. What s a polite young lady to do but mind her manners and pray she s never found out? But then there s that murder. As Sherlock Holmes s niece, Evelina should be able to find the answers, but she has a lot to learn. And the first decision she has to make is whether to trust the handsome, clever rake who makes her breath come faster, or the dashing trick rider who would dare anything for her if she would only just ask. Praise for 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). Codice libro della libreria AAS9780345537188
