“I said that Shadowfall is rather like an enjoyable nightmare. Shadowblood is even more enjoyable.”
Tracy Revel’s first novel Shadowfall got rave reviews worldwide, and is already being translated into Italian. The Sherlock Holmes Society of London loved it and we couldn’t wait for their review of the sequel Shadowblood – they didn’t disappoint us.
“The sequel to Shadowfall is just as deliriously weird. Shadowblood by Tracy Revels introduces us again to the World of Shadows, whose interaction with our own world can be devastating. Watson’s recuperation from his previous encounters with the supernatural is interrupted when an unpleasant recluse demands that Holmes find his missing daughter.
Shortly after the detective’s arrival,the old man is horribly murdered, and Holmes’s own Shadowborn powers are tested to the limit in a quest for the girl and, ultimately, for the Fountain of Youth. He and Watson travel to Prague, where they are helped by Dr John Dee, and then to St Augustine, Florida, where they receive assistance and opposition from even stranger beings.
The missing girl is practising blood magic and has acquired a very dangerous assistant, a woman skilled in murder. I said that Shadowfall is rather like an enjoyable nightmare. Shadowblood is even more enjoyable.”
Tracy Revels has a popular blog Strictly Sherlock and Tracy was on Team 1 (BBC Sherlock) in The Great Sherlock Holmes Debate in November. She joins us for the December discussion taking place on 14th December.
