Steampunk Scarlett is Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes meet Steampunk.

DESCRIPTION

Scarlett was a sensible seventeen year old young lady or so everyone thought, but there was definitely more to her. The daughter of famous English Egyptologists and archeologists Theodore and Gemma Seely, she was prone to adventure and all the world had to offer. It was the 1890s, and she had just received a letter from one of her parents' dearest friend, a certain detective who lived on Baker Street, who needed her help on a case most bizarre. As she embark through the supernatural side of London, venture into the forbidden realms bordering Victorian society; often accompanied by a dashing but infuriating Lord Darthmoor; Scarlett's first case, which had seem innocent at first had taken a turn for the unexpected and dangerous.

The Steampunk Scarlett Series(TM)- Available as an eBook, Paperback, and Audio Book (Coming Soon)

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - Peg Weasley
A quick, fun read. Light on the steampunk, but with a generous helping of the supernatural (and a smidgen of Sherlock!), this story has an engaging plot that draws the reader in and keeps the pages turning. Handsome suitors abound and Scarlett has a chance to sample a kiss from all of them. First in a series, this book is a great start.
Reviews - g jo50
This book is a fun read, and Gow's story line moves rapidly holding your interest hostage with the twists and turns.
Reviews - mlp mom
This is steampunk with, well, spunk.

As with all Gow novels we have a fantastic heroine who is no wussy female waiting for a man to save her or come to her rescue. Instead we get a woman who is fierce and smart and knows how to be tough when she needs to be, act like a lady when it is appropriate and be a warrior when needed. Someone who doesn't fit the ideals of a gentlewoman in London in the late 1800's where this novel is set.

Steamy steampunk with a kicky butt female protagonist. She is smart, pretty. I like her chemistry with the vampire, but the fey is pretty hot too.

I will read anything from the prolific Kailin Gow in any genres. Now only does she have hundreds of books, but they are addicting. I have spent many nights staying up trying to finish a series. You read one book, you have to read the next. I am not the only lifelong fan. My sister and cousins are all reading her. There's vintage Kailin Gow and then there's her newest releases. You have to read them all!
