BeschreibungThese three short stories return us to the world of Emma Jane Holloway's delightful novels featuring Evelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes. Together they expand the bounds of Holloway's irresistible vision of Victorian London, which has enchanted readers with a seamless mix of paranormal fantasy, romance, and mystery. Now this trilogy of prequels is available in one convenient eBook bundle: THE ADVENTURE OF THE WOLLASTON RITUAL Prequel to A Study in Silks THE STRANGE AND ALARMING COURTSHIP OF MISS IMOGEN ROTH Prequel to A Study in Darkness THE STEAMSPINNER MUTINY Prequel to A Study in Ashes In a Victorian era ruled by a council of ruthless steam barons, mechanical power is the real monarch and sorcery the demon enemy of the Empire. Nevertheless, the most coveted weapon is magic that can run machines-something Evelina Cooper has secretly mastered. But rather than making her fortune, her special talents could mean death or an eternity as a guest at Her Majesty's secret laboratories. What's a polite young lady to do but mind her manners and pray she's never found out? But first there's murder and mayhem to deal with. Praise for The Baskerville Affair "As Sherlock Holmes's niece, investigating murder while navigating the complicated shoals of Society-and romance-in an alternate Victorian England, Evelina Cooper is a charming addition to the canon."-Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author of the Kushiel's Legacy series "This book has just about everything: magic, machines, mystery, mayhem, and all the danger one expects when people's loves and fears collide.

The villains and scoundrels continue to be wonderfully complex, and heroine Evelina only grows more interesting as she explores the fearsome and fascinating darker side of her Blood magic."-RT Book Reviews, on A Study in Darkness "An exciting trilogy . . . what a stunning conclusion to such a phenomenal series!"-Fresh Fiction, on A Study in Ashes
PortraitEver since childhood, Emma Jane Holloway refused to accept that history was nothing but facts imprisoned behind the closed door of time. Why waste a perfectly good playground coloring within the time lines? Accordingly, her novels are filled with whimsical impossibilities and the occasional eye-blinking impertinence-but always in the service of grand adventure. An award-winning author of both historical and urban-fantasy romance, Holloway has an honors degree in English literature. Writing as Sharon Ashwood, she won the RITA Award for paranormal romance for the third book of her Dark Forgotten series. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and is owned by the Demon Lord of Kitty Badness.
