A Stoker and Holmes Novel, Book One

The Clockwork Scarab

The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason

Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood, so to speak.

And when two young society girls disappear—one dead, one missing—there’s no one more qualified to investigate.

Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve a murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab.

The pressure is on, and the stakes are high—if Stoker and Holmes don’t figure out why London’s finest sixteen-year-old women are in danger, they’ll become the next victims.

Stoker & Holmes is Young Adult book series set in steampunk London. For ages 12 to adult.

“Gleason has vamped up the familiar world of Holmes and Watson…to paranormally exhilarating effect.”

“This book has it all…the vivid setting and the finely drawn, compelling heroines make this a fine choice for readers who like their stories with stem punk spice and smart, strong women.”

-- School Library Journal

“The author’s writing exudes energy, romance, and humor, and she gives her heroines strong, vibrate personalities as they puzzle out the expansive mystery unfolding before them.”

-- Publishers Weekly

"With its fog-shrouded setting, its heart-racing and clever plot, and, most of all, its two completely delightful kick-butt heroines, The Clockwork Scarab is pure, delicious fun from beginning to end."
