    I would give this book ten stars if I could. Lyndsay is a queen among pasticheurs, and delivers wholeheartedly with this collection. Her Holmes and Watson are living, breathing, snarking partners who adore one another and work together with beautiful efficiency. They care for one another so palpably...

    This is a collection of stories that covers Holmes's career. We see Holmes and Watson banter through various entertaining stories and mysteries and each chapter feels like a Cliffs Notes version of a longer novel yet still shows the fantastic ability they have in solving cases and baffling those aro...

    I have read one other book by Lyndsey Faye (Jane Steele), and I loved it. This book is no different. If you are a fan of the television show "Sherlock", I think you will enjoy this book. Written in the manner of several stories across the Sherlock's timeline from when he was just starting out to his...

    I have read quite a lot of Sherlock Holmes stories written by authors than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Some good, some less than good. However, this collection is one of the finest I have ever read and the stories really feel like they were written by Conan Doyle himself.The book's stories are both befo...

    Galley provided by publisherI have never been Sherlock Holmes' biggest fan. Sure, I read them (or rather, my mum read them too me, and freaked me out a little), but I've not read any Holmes stories in at least 10 years. Lyndsay Faye's take on Holmes and Watson is wholly refreshing and, although some...

    I have always been a huge fan of Mr. Holmes, possibly even going as far to consider myself a “Sherlockian”. Maybe I’m too much a fangirl, since in my mind, the whole time while reading these short stories, I saw Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Watson. When I saw...

    Overly Modernized and Overly Talkative Fan-Fiction. While this series of short stories gains a star at the debut of the first two shorts which dive into Sherlock Holmes' life before Baker Street, the rest of the shorts quickly become tedious and reveal an alternate universe where our beloved Sherloc...

    Basically, I love Lyndsay Faye. And this is an ARC that was provided for me by Netgalley and the publisher for an honest opinion. My honest opinion is that Lyndsay Faye is fantastic. She was the one who introduced me into Holmes pastiches with Dust and Shadow: An Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr...

    Originally published at Reading RealityI have an often-confessed penchant for Sherlock Holmes pastiches. As a consequence, I’ve read a lot of them. Some take the Holmes canon into entirely different directions, like Laurie R. King’s Holmes/Russell series, A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry...
