Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Six years ago, I got my hands on the first book and my obsession could not stop ever since. Featuring the little sister of Sherlock Holmes, this book really takes your breath away. I loved every second of the book and was really sad when I can't find anymore in my local library. Six years later, I can still remmeber details from the book, which says that this book really engaged me in reading because I tend to forget the plot of books even after I read them. I love this series, and I highly recommand this to anyone who likes a good mystery. I promise, you will gow to love Enola.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun fast read for Sherlock Holmes fans Although this book is marketed as "Young Adult" i can only lay claim to the latter part of that descriptive. Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed this series of 6 books (read them in the order they are written). I all but memorized Sherlock Holmes stories when I was a teen and it is great to see an author 'revive' the genre. The attention to period details is excellent and the plot is a fast moving zippy read that made me wish the series would never end. I highly recommend this series.
