I only review books I really enjoy and this one qualifies. In fact, I'm about to buy the sequel which is something I almost never do. Kudos to the author.

This is a fictional story based on gruesome historical facts surrounding 2 murders. No one can discern the who or the why these murders took place. Ms. Ross has given us a very enticing answer to those questions. You will have a very difficult time walking away from this story until you have your answer.

The Daemoniac moved a little slow for me, even though there was a lot going on. I felt like the mystery was overly convoluted. There was so much running around that it seemed fairly aimless at times, with nothing to show for their trouble. When the mystery is finally solved, it was somewhat anticlimactic. I expected something massive and huge, and it just seemed to fizzle in my opinion. The characters were a lot of fun though. Harry, the younger sister of a famous detective, takes on a case, enlisting the help of her friend, John Weston. The banter between these two characters is great. I looked forward to their conversations, both about the case and not. I don't think I'll be continuing the series. However, the book is very well written with excellent characters. If you enjoy a more drawn out mystery, this may be one for you. *I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of this book*

I love reading fiction set in late 19th and early 20th century New York City. It’s fascinating reading about how some things in the city are so much different but others are so much the same. I think this is the main reason I signed up to review this book, but it became just another part of an awesome book. It’s weird, but I had recently read something about Arthur Conan Doyle giving up his writing to focus on spiritualism, and then he pops up in this book. I like how he has a very small part in the story, but just enough for you to connect a few strands of story together. We start out feeling badly for Harrison, as it seems like she plays second fiddle to her older sister, Myrtle, who is best known for her own sleuthing skills. A heat wave and boredom push Harry to pose as Myrtle to take on this case, and quite a case it is. Kidnapping, black magic, murder…lots of action here. I think my favorite part was Harry. She’s already shown how she doesn’t want to blend in by chopping her hair off. Now, she doesn’t even think for a second about how she should be acting like a contemporary female, which means getting ready to marry. She’s off traversing the city, albeit almost always with male companions, to find out who is committing these terrible crimes. She’s definitely a heroine, even if you were to transplant her in these modern times – she’d still kick butt. I was so excited to see that the next installment in this series will be arriving early next year. I hope to be able to read that one as well to see where Harry and her friend John (and their awkward “more than friends but not really” thing) wind up. And please, don’t be turned off by the young adult label on this book – you’ll enjoy it no matter what age you are! I received this book in order to provide an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
