Review: Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty
Summary from Goodreads:
In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students, one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James "Mori" Moriarty, meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.
Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more.
FACT: Someone has been murdered in London's Regent's Park. The police have no leads.
FACT: Miss James "Mori"Moriarty and Sherlock "Lock" Holmes should be hitting the books on a school night. Instead, they are out crashing a crime scene.
FACT: Lock has challenged Mori to solve the case before he does. Challenge accepted.
FACT: Despite agreeing to Lock's one rule--they must share every clue with each other--Mori is keeping secrets.
OBSERVATION: Sometimes you can't trust the people closest to you with matters of the heart. And after this case, Mori may never trust Lock again.
Release Date: September 15th.
Another book for review that I jumped up and down when I received it. :) Mainly because I'm a huge Sherlock fan and love the idea of a female Moriarty.
My main complaint was Moriarty was not evil enough, lol, but that changes as the story goes on, and I really enjoyed Mori's POV. The side characters didn'[t really matter in this story, it mainly focused on Lock and Mori, besides the Father who the villain.
This was a quick read, it was only 256 pages, I wish it had been a little longer and the world had been built more. I'll be checking out the next books in the series, mainly, because it is an interesting plot.
I recommend checking this novel out if you love Sherlock, or fanfiction.
