Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
When the beautiful Duqessa Blanchfleur del Campo goes missing, it falls to Enola Holmes, sister of the better-known Sherlock, to crack the case and recover the missing lady. This is the fifth book in the series of books about Enola's adventures, but it can be read out of sequence and without the confusion that often accompanies "catching up" with a series. Brief nods are made to earlier books as spunky, level-headed Enola dons disguises and pseudonyms to keep her whereabouts secret from her brothers. Meanwhile, Enola scours London, above and below ground, to locate the kidnapped duchess. While ferreting out clues to Blanchfeur's disappearance, Enola discerns the involvement of her earlier nemesis, Mrs. Culhern, and suspects that Duqessa Blanchfleur was taken for her elegant clothes and glorious red-gold hair. Meanwhile, Enola receives a gypsy prophecy suggesting the whereabouts of her long absent mother, sending her on another search to find out why she was abandoned. This is a fast-moving, exciting, and wonderfully feminist adventure that offers both fun and great storytelling for middle readers. Certainly, the tales have not ended because now that Enola is reunited with her famous brother, she will undoubtedly be taking part or taking the lead in more amazing adventures in London Town. Highly recommended. Reviewer: Lois Rubin Gross
School Library Journal
Gr 5–9—In this fifth book in the series, Enola, younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, discovers that the royal Duque del Campo's wife, Duquessa Lady Blanchefleur, has gone missing. Through an array of pseudonyms and disguises, the 14-year-old sets out for the grimy underside of Baker Street's Underground station to search for her. Along the way, she encounters an old Gypsy woman wearing a chrysanthemum-blossom amulet displaying Enola's long-lost mother's initials. The woman bestows a fate upon Enola—that she is destined to be alone forever unless she chooses to defy the fate. As Enola struggles with the del Campo case and her mother's whereabouts, she collides with Sherlock. He hands over a mysterious packet that was left on his doorstep, revealed to be a cryptic "skytale" sent by their mother. Feelings about her abandonment begin to change, and all three siblings set out to Lady Blanchefleur. Although Springer builds upon the earlier titles and characters, a different side of Enola's character is presented. Through 19th-century London's dark atmospheric settings, Enola's flair shines through with perseverance and ingenuity. Her descriptive internal monologues demonstrate sensitivity as she discovers her mother's real reason for leaving. In this brilliantly written emotional tale, children will appreciate Enola's self-discovery on the importance of family and her determination to find her true fate.—Krista Welz, North Bergen Public Library, NJ

    Review on series...

    Enola Holmes is a really well thought out, exciting, and thrilling series. Each book has an element of surprise, and so many brilliant parts of mystery that you wonder how Enola can even solve such a confusing case. The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye, although interesting and as good as the rest of the other books in the series, had a somewhat unsatisfying ending (I won't spoil it for the reader though). In this book Enola is in the final chapter of finding her mother. All throughout the rest of the books this has been her main goal -to find her mother. This book is exciting, and the plot is very fast pace. This series does need to be read in order, and although these books are appropriate for teen girls, they are not at all appropriate for kids. Some things that parents or readers need to be cautioned about in this series are : In the first book there is a scene with a prostitute in it. The D word is used. In another book, although sex is not directly mentioned, it is implied when Enola notices how young wives vanish into their houses for a week or so and come out pregnant. There are also some pretty vivid descriptions of the slums of England. Along with all that, there is a scene where drunk men call out to Enola asking if she wants company. The Case of the Left Handed Lady probably has the most questionable content. There are a few other issues that might keep younger teens and kids from being able to fully enjoy the intricate plot lines of each Enola Holmes mystery. These book are for girls only. Each mystery is seen from the eyes of Enola in a womanly perspective. Also, each mystery is full of things only a female detective, such as Enola, would notice - which I suppose is why she always seems to figure out things before her oh so clever brother Sherlock. Enola is also easier to relate to than Sherlock. I give this series overall 4 stars, and if it could be given a movie rating for its contents I would rate it PG-13.

    Why does it have to end?

    Am I hearing this right? This is the last Enola Holmes?!? I really like this series, even though I'm a teen. I like Sherlock, but I can never really relate to him. I somewhat relate to Enola, though. Not in parent abandonment, but in being alone in the world... Springer hit home when writing about it. If you like a short and cute read, I would really reccomend this series! I'm going to hate this series being over... it's that good!!!

    Excellent

    This entire series is delightful - even for adults. Enola is an incredibly resourceful and independent heroine while reminding us how important family really is. The mysteries are simple but interesting and this one wraps everything up. The depiction of Victorian London is excellent as well.
    I enjoyed this series very much and recommend it for young and older adults.

    Arrianna to a love ?

    (Sorry for not being here. I was disgustingly sick.) Arrianna walks in and starts to write a letter. "So I have recieved your question," it reads, "and the first thing you need to know is that you are not a stalker! I know that anytime I like a guy I do the same thing. Second thing is, ask him if he feels the same way. I know it sounds easy when written out, but if you just ask 'Hey (insert boys name here), do you still feel the same as you did last year?', I think you will get an answer. Who knows? Maybe it is one you like! Oh and, if you do not want to do that, then drop hints. Just make sure they are not too hidden because some guys have a hard time understanding hints! Have a wonderful day, Arrianna."

    Very Well Thought-Out...

    The Enola Holmes Series is very well writen, with wonderful surprises on each and every page. The ending, however, was a bit...dry, I guess. It leaves the reader wishing for a bit more. I do not like how some people say this book is for adults only. I am only in middle school, and I understood it just fine. Nancy Springer depicted London in the 1880s very well, and I liked the way the characters were developed throughout the series. It was very entertaining, and all together quite delightful. This is defintely a book that won't get old, you will want to read this series again and again. Some of the concepts are not for younger readers, therefore I would say this is appropriate for ages 13 and up. Springer did a great job on this series, and I can't wait to see what she will write next.

    . . . . .

    The only thing I really have a problem with is the ending, but other than that, I find myself looking "enola holmes" in the search bar, hoping for more, but....* sigh * Every time I'm disappointed. u.u
    Other than that, it was a thoroughly enjoyable book because it was full of suspense and action - more than you'd think to find in a book like this. Overall, this series has become one of my favorite series.
    You don't have to read the middle four books in any order, but I would recommend reading the first and last books first and last, because you would miss alot of information.
