Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you're the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And so, when two society girls go missing, there's no one more qualified to investigate. Now, the fierce Evaline and the logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, in order to navigate the advances of not just one, but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve a murder with only one clue: the strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don't unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they'll become the next victims…
"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." (Kirkus Reviews)

Much better than expected
No I have none hence listening to audiobooks all day.
I'll continue with the series, the characters are all likeable, that's the most important thing to me in most books. too many people aren't.
I bought this book because of Ms Entwhistle having listened to her on the Flavia de luce series, the narrator on audible is not as good so I had to get them from iTunes. ||||||
|She has a lovely tone to her voice though one criticism I have is that it is difficult to concentrate on which character is speaking at any time, I feel Stoker and Holmes sound too similar. It would be improved if one of them sounded more distinct say like Daphne in the De luce novels.
Joyfully not a Vampire (or vampyre if your cool) in sight. Like the Theodosia series ancient Egypt makes a welcome return.
