Publisher's Summary

The 14th novel in the magical alternate history Elemental Masters series continues the reimagined adventures of Sherlock Holmes in a richly detailed alternate 20th-century England.

While Sherlock is still officially dead, John and Mary Watson and Nan Killian and Sarah Lyon-White are taking up some of his caseload - and some for Lord Alderscroft, the Wizard of London.

Lord Alderscroft asks them to go to Dartmoor to track down a rumor of evil magic brewing there. Not more than four hours later, a poor cottager, also from Dartmoor, arrives seeking their help. His wife, in a fit of rage over the children spilling and spoiling their only food for dinner that night, sent them out on the moors to forage for something to eat. This is not the first time she has done this, and the children are moor-wise and unlikely to get into difficulties. But this time they did not come back, and in fact, their tracks abruptly stopped "as if them Pharisees took'd 'em". The man begs them to come help.

They would have said no, but there's the assignment for Alderscroft. Why not kill two birds with one stone?

But the deadly bogs are not the only mires on Dartmoor.

Another wonderful book

I have been reading Mercedes Lackey's books since I was in High School. I still love them and am still working my way through them all.

I love Mercedes Lackey!

This was a great overall story, but the reading using the local dialect and accents was mostly too unintelligible. I have no idea if the hard copy book was an easier read. The narrator is usually very good (and the rest of the book was very well done indeed), so I have to say she did her best in trying to vocalize a difficult, poorly written dialect.

A Story that will leave you Spellbound.

I love the characters. the discussions between characters got you involved in the story to the point of trying to find the children.

Very satisfying.

Once again, a full, engaging story filled with intrigue and excitement. There’s no one who writes like Misty.
