This was a tremendous novel, all the classic Sherlock characters, Mrs Hudson, Watson, Mycroft and even a helpful Lestrade. Along with the newest character to add to the Holmes cast, teenage Mary Russell who Holmes identifies with immediately. I'd recommend this novel to any fan of Sherlock Holmes who's looking for more stories after the Doyle cannon.

I definitely liked this more at the end than the beginning. I think I just needed to get used to the writing style. I had heard a lot of great things about this series and I do think it is well written. However, there was just nothing that drew me completely into the story. I never got really invested in any of the mysteries. I thought the last section was the best one and the most entertaining but the first two sections were a bit boring to me.
I don't particularly care about Sherlock Holmes but it was interesting to see his character reimagined here. I enjoyed the relationship between Mary and him that is developed throughout this story. There is a hint of romance between them, which may make some people uncomfortable as they do meet when she is quite young and there is a considerable age gap between them, but nothing actually happens in this book so I didn't mind.
I'm not opposed to reading more from this series, and there are a lot of other books in this series, but this type of more literary mystery doesn't tend to draw me in. In general, I have a hard time getting invested in historical mysteries. I do like seeing the character development, which may push me to read more from this series. ( )

What a treat. Immediately jumped in the next two books in this series; floored and oh, so surprised by the deep thinking of the theological discourse in which Mary engages. ( )

My very first Sherlock Holmes novel, my first Mary Russell, and... my first mystery? Can that be possible at this stage?

Keen to read more mysteries, especially if they're like this one. King is a very clever writer, her tone and pacing match the classic character nicely. I never felt compelled to read more than a chapter or two, but when I did sit down to read, the time flew by.

I don't think I'll dive into more Sherlock/Mary Russell books just yet, but certainly in the future. The source material and genre are too rich for me not to be interested. ( )

I mistakenly read one of the later books in the series years ago and didn't care for it (probably because I was so confused - I didn't realize how many books I had skipped over at the time.) I decided to give it a fair shot and start back at the beginning, but I just can't bring myself to go further. Mary Russell annoys me, and given what I know from reading that other book (and what spoilers I've picked up via Goodreads), I just can't see the sense in the romantic aspects between her and Sherlock Holmes. That's just my opinion, obviously, and I didn't get that far into this first installment, but life's too short to waste on a book that irks me from the get-go.
