Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Adult author Gleason (the Gardella Vampire Chronicles) brings the same penchant for mixing the historical, paranormal, and romantic to this first book in the Stoker & Holmes series. The narrative switches between two young women living in 1889 London: observant and cerebral Alvermina Holmes (she goes by Mina for obvious reasons), the niece of Sherlock Holmes; and Evaline Stoker, the headstrong (and physically strong) younger sister to Bram, and member of a proud line of vampire hunters. The girls’ differing temperaments make for some bristly interactions as they investigate the connection between the disappearance of a young woman and several recent murders. Gleason’s premise should be “too much”—in addition to the literary conceit involving the Holmes and Stoker families, the story rapidly expands to include steampunk, alternate history, time travel, and Egyptian mythology—and yet it all works. Few answers are offered in this outing, but the author’s writing exudes energy, romance, and humor, and she gives her heroines strong, vibrant personalities as they puzzle out the expansive mystery unfolding before them. Ages 12–up. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Sept.)

VOYA - Katie Mitchell
Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes are an unlikely duo. When they are asked by Irene Adler to investigate the murders of young ladies who hail from Britain's upper class, the two find that once they overcome their initial distrust, they actually make a pretty good team. Evaline has trained for years to be an actual vampire hunter—a fact unbeknownst to her high society friends, while Mina possesses the same logical and inquisitive mind as her uncle. A mysterious cult focusing on Egyptology, the strange appearance of a young man who claims to be a time-traveler, the Met's own inquiry, and a street criminal create further complications for the pair, who are targeted as the killer's next victims. An alternate-universe London creates an atmospheric steampunk setting for this debut in the Stoker and Holmes mystery. Gleason is able to weave a number of genres and plotlines into a tight and suspenseful mystery. Readers who are familiar with the literary origins of the protagonists (including fans of BBC's Sherlock) will find fun bits peppered throughout the story, but the young women are also fully formed characters without their impressive lineage.

Gr 8 Up—This book has it all: plot, setting, character development. An alternate, steampunk version of 19th-century London is the setting for this first title of a proposed series. Reluctantly at first, Mina Holmes, the teenage niece of Sherlock Holmes, and Evaline Stoker, the teenage sister of Bram Stoker, combine their sleuthing and hand-to-hand combat talents to find out why society girls are turning up dead. As the pair infiltrates opium dens, pubs, society balls, and seedy criminal lairs, they discover that a secret society based on Egyptology is at the heart of the bad business. As the teens get closer to the truth, they get closer to being counted among those killed. Holmes, highly logical and serious, comes across as aloof, even a bit of a snob. However, readers come to discover that she uses her snobbishness as protection. At heart, she is insecure about her looks and worries about what guys think of her. Stoker, a pretty and vivacious vampire hunter, is brave and strong, but she, too, has her vulnerabilities. Throughout their adventure, they have the help (and admiration) of mysterious, possibly criminal, Pix; intelligent Inspector Grayling; and accidental time-traveler Dylan. Sherlock Holmes and Bram Stoker add familiar excitement with their cameo appearances. All in all, the vivid setting and the finely drawn, compelling heroines make this a fine choice for readers who like their stories with steampunk spice and smart, strong women.—Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC
Kirkus Reviews
A vampire slayer and a great detective (-in-training) fight baddies in a steam-powered London. Alvermina "Mina" Holmes is thrilled when she's invited to a secret rendezvous at the British Museum; she'll finally prove herself a fitting successor to her famous uncle Sherlock. The mystery she finds is every bit as fascinating as she could have hoped: bloody murders, a secret society, even a time traveler. Along with pesky vampire slayer Evaline Stoker, Mina investigates the mysterious Society of Sekhmet. Mina deduces, while Evaline (ever ladylike in her split skirts) does violence to their enemies. Between attacking villains and questioning her own prowess, elegant Evaline develops warm feelings for a common thief named Pix. Meanwhile, Mina is troubled by her attraction to the almost-as-clever-as-she-is Inspector Grayling. Some elements fall flat: The time traveler's Nikes and "egg mick-muffins" clash with the tone, and Pix's over-the-top guttersnipe dialect--"No' all of 'em 're true"--is pure distraction. Nonetheless, the budding friendship between the bickering girls brings heart into this gadget-laden mystery. While Pix and Inspector Grayling will clearly provide romantic interest in forthcoming volumes, it's the snarky bromance between Stoker and Holmes that stands out. The mishmash of popular tropes (steampunk! vampires! Sherlock Holmes!) will bring readers in, but it's the friendship between the two girls that will keep them. (Steampunk/mystery. 12-16)

    An interesting new series - cannot wait for the next one Revie

    An interesting new series - cannot wait for the next one

    Review Tally - based out of 5

    OVERALL: 4 STARS

    Story/Plot: 5 - I have to be honest here - going into The Clockwork Scarab, I was a little hesitant. It was promising a lot to be honest - Sherlock Holmes's niece, Bram Stoker's sister, Irene Adler, time-travel, steampunk & it was a mystery. I see you nodding your head too, but it all worked. Before I was finished with the book, I was already checking to see if the next book in the series was already in the works.

    Re-read Value: 3 - 50/50. Even though I enjoyed the story, I don't know if I will re-read it right away.

    Continue Series: 4 - As I mentioned up there in the story section, I am already anticipating the next book in this interesting series.

    Characters: 4 - I did enjoy the characters and I cannot wait for the growth which happens for characters over a series. This book was a good introduction and I cannot wait to learn more about them. I will be honest though - I have a slight pet peeve about love triangles and that whole "team so & so" or "team so & so" and although it appears there might be a little of that in the future of this series, I am hoping it doesn't become a serious issue.

    Cover: 4 - Almost a 4.5 to be honest. I think it is an interesting cover, it fits the title and the storyline. You do get a steampunk vibe from it, so it fits nicely.

    Genre Fulfillment: 5 - Steampunk elements, check. Sherlockian mystery, check. Young Adult elements, check.

    Personal Involvement 4: - I did enjoy this story and look forward to continuing the series. I do have a few issues - the triangle issue, which I find tedious to say the least - and there is an issue with the book and how it ended, which makes me wonder and hope for a REALLY good resolution. Also I wish to see if my theories pan out or if Ms. Gleason is going to surprise me. Which will make me change this review possibly into a 5. I love when authors shock me.

    THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB: A STOKER AND HOLMES NOVEL by Colleen Glea

    THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB: A STOKER AND HOLMES NOVEL by Colleen Gleason is a terrific start to a new and unique mystery series set in 1889 London. It's an amalgamation of several popular subgenres, including steampunk, time travel, romance and young adult mystery, and stars Evaline Stoker (Bram's half-sister) and Mina Holmes (Sherlock's niece and Mycroft's daughter) as courageous, self-reliant, 17-year-old sleuths under the tutelage of Irene Adler (Sherlock's admired female opponent).

    Told in alternating points of views, the story follows Mina and Evaline as they use their unique skills to identify the person(s) responsible for kidnapping and murdering upper class teenage girls and dumping their bodies around London. The palm-sized mechanical scarabs found beside each body link the murders and are crucial to the investigation. These and other clues lead to a secret Egyptian society to which all the dead girls belonged.

    As in all good mysteries, the two young sleuths face a number of obstacles to their investigation. The main one here, though, is the girls mistrust of each other. The ever observant and analytical Mina Holmes thinks Evaline is flighty, weak, not terribly bright, and uncooperative. The incredibly fast and strong Evaline Stoker believes Mina is a haughty know-it-all who is dull and has no sense of adventure. But as the story evolves and they save each other with their set of special skills, they grudgingly begin to admire one another as worthy partners.

    Though Mina and Evaline are the main sleuths in the story, they have plenty of help in solving the murders. The girls are glad to have Irene Adler as their mentor and supervisor, but their other assistants aren't as welcomed. Mina has to share her quest with the maddening but intriguing Inspector Ambrose Grayling of Scotland Yard and the handsome time traveler Dylan Eckhart, while Evaline needs help from Pix, a young man of questionable character who knows more about the case than he lets on. The men are just a bit older than the girls and provide the light romantic elements in the story.

    Steampunk is a large part of THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB . The variety of steam-powered mechanical devices, such as Night-Illuminators, Steam-Stream guns, and the Deluxe Tome-Selector, adds a bit of humor to the story, and a few are even used to help solve the murders.

    Overall, THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB is an intriguing and well-plotted murder mystery that readers from 12 years of age and up will enjoy. If you like adventurous stories with unique characters and strong, confident heroines, then this book is for you. I only hate that I have to wait a whole year for the release of the next book in the series.

    To put it simply, this book was a perfect fit for me it had steampunk, science fiction, paranormal, classic book crossover characters, ancient gods, time travel and 2 very strong female protagonists...all a win, win for me. I am very happy to say I was NOT disappointed by my high expectations.

    Miss Holmes and Miss Stoker (yes, Sherlock's niece and Bram's sister) are an unlikely duo called upon by the Princess of England to unravel the murders of young society women. The corresponding clue to all these murders is a clockwork scarab. It will take all of Miss Stoker's extraordinary vampire fighting strength and Miss Holmes fabulous reasoning and observations to stop these heinous crimes.

    From start to finish I was pulled into this unusual caper, trying to sleuth the mystery for myself.

    The Clockwork Scarab provides a brilliantly written plot with twists and turns that will leave you guessing till the end and even then you will still want more.

    This ARC of The Clockwork Scarab was given to me by Chronicle Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 17, 2013.

    Lovely Victorian Novel

    Honestly together with the time period and the authours thorough knowledge of it, it is no doubt why the book was so good. Along with the plot, some of the books characters were mazing, while otgers not so much. However, with the London setting was a tad confusing to me, I enjoyed watching relationships unfold. It is really a timeless novel.

    Girl power in steampunk Victorian England! Mina Holmes and Eval

    Girl power in steampunk Victorian England! Mina Holmes and Evaline Stoker team up to solve the mysterious deaths and disappearance of young society girls. While they don't exactly get along to start with, they learn to work together and use their strengths to get to the bottom of the mystery and save lives from the evil doings that are afoot. With Mina's observational and investigative skills and Evaline's superior strength and fighting ability, what could possibly go wrong? Unexpected twists and turns, as well as distractions such as handsome, enigmatic, and infuriating pickpockets, police inspectors, and time travelers, make solving this mystery a challenge. The descriptions of the steampunk gadgets and the workings of this alternate reality add to the gritty and fascinating world of steampowered London. I can't wait to read the further adventures of Stoker and Holmes.

    Loved this book.

    I wasn't sure how much I'd like this book. Having the main characters that were offshoots of previously existing classic character could either be really great or really terrible. I'm so glad that in this book it was the former. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    Plot spoilers

    Between the plot spoilers and the kids role playing there isnt a decent review here. The plot spoilers are giving away every detail of the book then bragging about getting their book for free, then we have kids playing cat games that have absolutely nothing to do with the book. Bn, both of these need to be banned from posting as they are violating terms of service.

    As much as I love the idea of steampunk, I surprisingly haven't

    As much as I love the idea of steampunk, I surprisingly haven't really read a lot of books with a steampunk feel. The Clockwork Scarab sounded like it was going to be so much fun, especially because it features a duo of female protagonists basically out to save the world!




    And although there were a few plot twists that had me worried at first for how they'd turn out, The Clockwork Scarab delivered and ended up being an enjoyable, clever read for me!




    Reasons to Read:




    1. The dynamic duo:




    It's a really neat idea to take Sherlock Holmes' niece (Mina) and pair her with Brams Stoker's younger sister (Evaline); you end up with two very different young women, who don't always see eye-to-eye but figure out ways to compliment each other. I appreciated that the main relationship of the book was about two female characters, as well. They're both spirited, gutsy girls which makes them interesting characters from the start.




    2. Plot-driven story:




    More than anything else, the plot takes the stage in The Clockwork Scarab.  The story moves along nicely, and there aren't any lulls but instead it continues at a steady pace. The mystery isn't overly simplistic, and while we do receive a few answers by the end of the book it's clear that the central mystery will continue throughout the series. 




    As much as I liked Mina and Evaline as characters, it's important to note that this story is written in dual-perspectives, with alternating chapters between Mina's and Evaline's voices. The idea for writing this from two points-of-view is great, but I found the execution to be lacking. The narration didn't strike me as two different characters, but instead it felt like the same voice. There was no real difference between them. 




    It also seemed that there were too many different ideas introduced for one little book, but I'm hoping that we'll see more of these sub-plots will be better explained in later books of the series. 




    I mentioned earlier that The Clockwork Scarab has some steampunk aspects to it, but it's definitely fairly minimal for a steampunk book. The setting is still fascinating and a lot of fun though; Colleen Gleason was able to incorporate some neat details about steampunk gadgets or society. 




    Review copy received from Chronicle Books/Raincoast Books for review; no other compensation was received.

    Mina (short for the horrific Alvermina) Holmes, niece of Sherloc

    Mina (short for the horrific Alvermina) Holmes, niece of Sherlock, and Evaline Stoker, sister of Bram, are called upon by the Crown, through its representative Irene Adler, to solve the murders of several young affluent women under mysterious circumstances. They all seem to be connected by the clockwork scarabs left near each corpse, apparently tokens of a secret society. The two young ladies alternatively butt heads and partner with Scotland Yard and other less savory elements of society to solve the mystery. Along the way, they have to overcome their own insecurities and put aside their petty rivalry to become true partners in the investigation.

    As a fan of Gleason's adult fiction (Gardella Vampire Chronicles), I was pleased with this first installment in her new YA series. I enjoyed the references to the Gardella Chronicles throughout, and I also enjoyed the steampunk elements. I was somewhat let-down by the ending. You're left not really knowing whodunit, although I definitely have a strong suspicion. I was also left wanting to see more of Stoker and Holmes and their various acquaintances, so I look forward to book 2.

    Colleen Gleason does it again!  When I saw that she had release

    Colleen Gleason does it again! 

    When I saw that she had released a steampunk inspired YA novel featuring characters named Stoker and Holmes I knew I needed to read it and I didn't regret it. Oh yes you read those names correctly, and YES they are related to the characters you are thinking about.

    Although it is a YA premise there are plenty of little gems scattered through out that fans of Gleason's previous work will definitely appreciate. From a nod to the Gardella history and a whimsical little quip from the young Miss Stoker to Bram that perhaps vampire hunting should be left to her opposite (an old man ..... Van Helsing .... Genius!) there was plenty in this that kept me turning the pages.

    There is a LOT to take in, murder, vampires, Egyptian history and even some time travel. Add to that a new twist on some familiar faces and this was definitely a hit.

    I cannot wait to read further adventures of this feisty little pair! A little suspension of belief may be suggested due to the way that the female characters are portrayed versus what they could probably have gotten away with in that age but the strong female theme is one of the things that Colleen does best and let's be honest .... when you throw in everything else if a touch of mismatched history is all you can find to point out ... that says it all!!

    Takes place in 1890s? England, with daughter of Bram Stoker and niece of Sherlock Holmes as protagonists. Not fond of jumping from one character's POV to another - gets confusing sometimes.

    The premise is good but you never develop much liking for these two whiney young women. Plot is predictable. Maybe the next book will have more substance.

    Striking's history, part four

    We managed to harm each other pretty good before we both stopped. I had a broken rib, him other numerous injuries. He still healed me and padded away, smiling, as if he were proud of me. I padded away, loathing him, not truely understanding. This was around when I took on Panther as a mate and tried to gain everyone's trust again. I destroyed that by breaking Panther's heart and and going to Ivy and by leading too many projects that I got annoyed with and gave up on. So I left and stuck just with The Elite, no longer part of both. I am still there today, working to keep everything in order and straightened. In fact, I am the second-in-command there. I still have Ivy as a mate, but Aspenpaw has became more involved in my life than I ever thought possible. Also, I've made more bonds than I ever had at BloodClan. And we all trust one another. More than I could say for BloodClan. We have ceremonies and meeting. Which, let's just say, BloodClan needs to be better organised on these. We are much better prepared and organised, in general, than that of almost all other Clans. All because my leader and I have worked with the Clan to make it work. Something BloodClan, among others, need to learn to do.
