Sherlock, oh Sherlock.

  I loveeee it I don't care if this was a FF, I couldn't stop reading it, I adore this young version of Sherlock, he's sooo sllaskdflsdhfkld, but I think Irene should be more badass right? ohh and Mycroft! I cannot..




 the rating isn't higher because the editing was poor, I feel I was reading an arc (which I wasn't I can assure you) anyway, I hope the editing will be better for the next book. Edit: Eva Morgan wrote on twitter (04-28-14)"Just fixed a couple typos in LOCKED - if you bought it before today and you want the fixed edition, email me and I'll send you a free copy."

Locked
Locked - Eva Morgan ¿Sherlock Holmes adolescente, y en el siglo XXI?

Sherlock Holmes es un personaje arrogante por naturaleza, así que la idea de un Sherlock adolescente me parecía aterradora. Es es algo que podría haber salido mal, muy mal. En cambio me encontré con una historia fresca, divertida, romántica y con un toque de misterio.

Sherlock, por supuesto, es arrogante, pero en grados tolerables y sólo respecto a su inteligencia. Así que nada de síndrome de Daemon aquí. (Daemon-soy-lo-máximo-y-todos-me-aman de la serie [b:Obsidian|12578077|Obsidian (Lux, #1)|Jennifer L. Armentrout|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1328275091s/12578077.jpg|17588854])

Además, también: CERO INSTA-LOVE.

Su relación con Irene comienza como un simple misterio. No la entiende y por eso comienza a pasar tiempo con ella. Porque Sherlock Holmes tiene que entenderlo todo. A partir de allí comienza a formarse una amistad y es sólo con el tiempo que surge un interés romántico.

Cabe destacar que esta historia esta basada en las historias originales de Sherlock Holmes escritas por Conan Doyle. Por lo que nos encontramos también a Mycroft y, al final, un breve vistazo de Moriarty, el eterno archi-enemigo de Sherlock. Eso si, nada de Watson.

El final es, aunque no completamente inesperado, sí sorprendente. Y aunque sabía la verdad, porque no hay nada más popular en las historias de Sherlock que cuando éste finje su muerte aún así llore una que otra lagrimita.

Unraveling: Locked by Eva Morgan
Locked - Eva Morgan

Sherrrrrrrlooooooooockkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

 

Need I say more? If that's not enough to convince you, I don't what is! description

 

Ok, ok, fine, let me try and convince you then...Have you watched BBC Sherlock? No? Then what the hell are you doing reading this?! Go watch it right now! Come back already? Excellent, let's proceed then.

 

Ms. Morgan does such an awesome job at catching the essence of Sherlock and then putting him in a high school setting. It was brilliant.

 

This is the story of a modern day Sherlock and Irene. Irene is a very troubled girl. She was in the car when her sister died and she didn't come out of it whole. So what happens when her mom makes her welcome the new neighbors by bringing over a casserole? Sherlock does what he does best and throws in her face the death of her sister not 2mins after opening the door.

Irene's reaction? Throw the casserole at Sherlock's face :D And this was most of their interactions throughout the book. Irene was a strange but great mix between Molly and Watson. Watching Sherlock trying to make sense of this strange girl, and Irene trying to cope with such an intense young man. It was perfect.

The whole book had me laughing out loud, sighing in contentment, and breaking my heat at others. Especially the ending! But it was all so worth it!

 

I would have liked a bit more mystery to the murder plot, but I was just having so much fun with Sherlock and Irene I couldn't be bothered with it for too long.

 

Mycroft was a tad creepier here than he is in the show. We don't even know what his job is, only that he is basically never at home, and every time he talked with Irene he gave me the creeps, but you could still that he did actually care for Sherlock. We also get a very tiny glimpse of Moriarty and I can't wait for the next book!!

P2P Fan Fiction Review: Locked
Locked - Eva Morgan

Found out after I read Locked that it's Sherlock Holmes P2P: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10098753/1/Locked.

 

Locked is pretty much based on the popular BBC TV series, Sherlock, but with a YA spin to it. The premise caught my eye, but the author really needs to go back to the drawing board with this one. There are many editing errors such as lowercase words for names, and the biggest offense is gender nouns goof. An example of this is when Sherlock it talking about Irene, the heroine while she is in the same room, Sherlock says "he" when she means "she", as in Irene. This happened more than once and had me doing a double take. There's also way too much telling and not enough showing. A good editor could have fixed these problems, but it's apparent there was no editing, or the editor used did a sloppy job.

 

The writing is one big convoluted mess. What I thought would be a murder mystery investigation about the death of Irene's sister becomes this Beverly Hill 90210 type of plot where Irene is treated as an outcast and Sherlock latches on to her for no reason. I guess she's supposed to be his Watson? Also out of nowhere, Irene is known as Ares, a secret advice columnist of some sort where her fellow students write to her to help fix their problems. At one point she ends up half naked in some boy's room to prove he's cheating on his girlfriend. The so-called girlfriend, who didn't reach out to Irene (an imposter did), sends her half naked pictures to everyone in the school and on social media. Now Irene and Sherlock must find out wants revenge against Irene for no real reason that is explained.

 

The author tries to make Sherlock like Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal of Sherlock, but it fails on paper. Sherlock comes across as way too robotic and spouts nonsense that makes you scratch your head more as you read. He's annoying and not at all seductive or admirable.

 

Big reading fail here. Should have never been published as is.
