A Darker Place
A Darker Place (Anne Waverly) - Laurie R. King

Anne Waverly, a respected University professor who specializes in alternative religious movements, goes undercover again to learn more about a community called Change that has branches in Arizona, England, and Japan. She found it easy to get into the community when a young girl, who looked a lot like her dead daughter and who hadn't been speaking took an interest in her. The young girl spoke to her and even laughed. She learned about her brother Jason and found herself determined to keep these children safe. She was slowly learning the secrets of the Change community in Arizona but not enough to call in her FBI counterpart to take over. Then she, along with the two kids and one other child were sent to the England branch for more advanced training with Jacob. They quickly realized things were not the same at the England branch and she was scared for herself and the kids and decided she needed to contact Glen with the FBI and fast! The problem was, he had no authority in England.


This book was slow moving but held my attention until the end but the ending was very abrupt and left me with a lot of questions.

I don't know what I expected.
In the Company of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon - Leslie S. Klinger,Laurie R. King

Don't get me wrong, I owe a lot to Laurie R. King. Her Mary Russell series is what really got me into Sherlock Holmes in the first place. (It also gave me a healthy, if often unfulfilled, love of Sherlockian romance--but that's a conversation for another day.)


That being said, I have never read a Sherlock Holmes collection edited by Laurie R King that I liked. I don't know what it is.


And I'm gunna be straight with you, I didn't finish this. I got about halfway through (just to the point of the adorable comic) and started skipping stories and looking ahead to see how many of the stories that actually involve Holmes and Watson. Hint: 6/15.




PROSE - 3/5

A Grave Talent - Laurie R. King

Another brilliant read, full of characters, places, and situations that it's a joy to get to know. While I love the Mary Russell character/stories best, this near-present-day urban mystery is beautifully written, elaborately detailed and philosophically complex. Reaching for the next already!

The Bones of Paris (Harris Stuyvesant) - Laurie R. King

Enjoyable 1920s mystery-thriller with a distinctly creepy vibe. Works in a large and colourful cast of American and Parisian artists of note. Complex, twisty plot with more of an edgy note than King's Holmes & Russell mysteries.

Touchstone - Sherlock & Holmes under another name ;D
Touchstone - Laurie R. King

Effective period spy thriller. It seems to pick up on elements of her longer Holmes/Russell series, with Watson & Holmes type traits spread among the cast and an emphasis on discussing the woman's role(s) in society at the time.


Enjoyable and unexpected. In the style of classic literature, it has perhaps a bit more description than modern readers will be used to.
