A Study in Silks (The Baskerville Affair, #1) by Emma Jane Holloway

A Study in Silks (The Baskerville Affair, #1)A Study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloway
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was expecting much from this book, a steampunk whose protagonist was none other than the grandniece of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, practically a bomb, too bad that I was disappointed.... The author has put a little too many things going on, including the usual love triangle, which I hate. While this book is more on the side paranormal romance that YA , it is also true that it does not meet all the conditions of steampunk, which in short, is not so importante. Also I admit that was a little too long and at times slightly boring.

Mi aspettavo tanto da questo libro, uno steampunk la cui protagonista era niente meno che la nipote di Sherlock e Mycroft Holmes, praticamente una bomba, peccato che....peccato che l'autrice ha messo un po' troppa carne al fuoco, tra cui il solito triangolo amoroso, che io detesto. Nonostante questo libro sia piú sul versante paranormal romance che YA, é anche vero che non soddisfa tutte le premesse dello steampunk, che insomma, si vede e non si vede. Inoltre ammetto che era un pochino troppo lungo e a volte leggermente noioso.

THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND RANDOM HOUSE PUBLISHING GROUP - DEL REY SPECTRA FOR THE PREVIEW!
