Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
About the Book: After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

“Sherry Thomas has done the impossible and crafted a fresh, exciting new version of Sherlock Holmes. From the carefully plotted twists to the elegant turns of phrase, A Study in Scarlet Women is a splendid addition to Holmes’s world. This book is everything I hoped it would be, and the next adventure cannot come too soon!” —Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author

“Thomas weaves a lush, intricate fantasy world around a gorgeous romance that kept me riveted until the very last page. What a breathtaking journey!” (Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series )

"Sherry Thomas is the most powerfully original historical romance author writing today."—Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author 


Do I Recommend this book? Yes!

Notes and Opinions: It was a little confusing to read in the beginning because each chapter changes between two stories, or technically, two different times: the past and present. It also picks up where The Burning Sky left off. And! You get to know the secondary characters more! Which I loved because you got to know Titus's friends and even more about him. You also get to know Bane more...and he's just as bad as we thought he was, actually I want to say worse. I mean, he's horrible. There is so much going on. Things are thrown at you every which way. Many times I had to go back and reread it. I'm grabbing book 3 as soon as possible!
