Evelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes, is the unforgettable heroine of the Baskerville Affair series, a rollicking trilogy blending paranormal fantasy, romance, and mystery. Reimagining Victorian London as the battleground between magic and machine, Emma Jane Holloway captures the city in stunning detail, from 221B Baker Street to the hunting grounds of Jack the Ripper. Now this eBook bundle brings together all three captivating novels: A STUDY IN SILKS A STUDY IN DARKNESS A STUDY IN ASHES Also includes prequel short stories for all three novels: “The Adventure of the Wollaston Ritual,” “The Strange and Alarming Courtship of Miss Imogen Roth,” and “The Steamspinner Mutiny”! 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—poised to enjoy her first Season in London Society—to do but mind her manners and pray she’s never found out? But first there’s a murder to deal with—not to mention missing automatons, a sorcerer, and a talking mouse. As Sherlock Holmes’s niece, Evelina should be able to find the answers, but she has a lot to learn. And the first decision she has to make is whether to trust the handsome, clever rake who makes her breath come faster or the dashing trick rider who would dare anything for her if she would only just ask. 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. I can’t wait to return to the world of Evelina Cooper!”—Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, on A Study in Silks “Holloway stuffs her adventure with an abundance of characters and ideas and fills her heroine with talents and graces, all within a fun, brisk narrative.”—Publishers Weekly, on A Study in Silks “Riveting . . . 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
