9781452110707: The Clockwork Scarab: A Stoker & Holmes Novel

"The mishmash of popular tropes (steampunk! vampires! Sherlock Holmes!) will bring readers in, but it's the friendship between the two girls that will keep them."--Kirkus Reviews

Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business.

But when you're the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And when two society girls go missing, there's no one more qualified to investigate.

Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve a murder with only one clue: the strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high.

If Stoker and Holmes don't unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they'll become the next victims.

About the Author:

Colleen Gleason is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of more than twenty novels. She is best known for her historical vampire slayer series The Gardella Vampire Chronicles, and the post-apocalyptic romance series The Envy Chronicles (as Joss Ware).

Set in steampunk Victorian London, The Clockwork Scarab is her debut young adult novel. She lives in the Midwest.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up–This book has it all: plot, setting, character development. An alternate, steampunk version of 19th-century London is the setting for this first title of a proposed series. Reluctantly at first, Mina Holmes, the teenage niece of Sherlock Holmes, and Evaline Stoker, the teenage sister of Bram Stoker, combine their sleuthing and hand-to-hand combat talents to find out why society girls are turning up dead. As the pair infiltrates opium dens, pubs, society balls, and seedy criminal lairs, they discover that a secret society based on Egyptology is at the heart of the bad business. As the teens get closer to the truth, they get closer to being counted among those killed. Holmes, highly logical and serious, comes across as aloof, even a bit of a snob. However, readers come to discover that she uses her snobbishness as protection. At heart, she is insecure about her looks and worries about what guys think of her. Stoker, a pretty and vivacious vampire hunter, is brave and strong, but she, too, has her vulnerabilities. Throughout their adventure, they have the help (and admiration) of mysterious, possibly criminal, Pix; intelligent Inspector Grayling; and accidental time-traveler Dylan. Sherlock Holmes and Bram Stoker add familiar excitement with their cameo appearances. All in all, the vivid setting and the finely drawn, compelling heroines make this a fine choice for readers who like their stories with steampunk spice and smart, strong women.–Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.
