Teaser Tuesday: Rebel Fire by Andrew Lane

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week my teaser is from Rebel Fire (Sherlock Holmes: the Legend Begins) by Andrew Lane. This ARC has been on my review stack for quite a while but I chose to read it now because the book will be released on April 24. Here is the description:
Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn’t expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England—and Crowe somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web—where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

The lead ball buzzed past Sherlock's ear like an enraged hornet. He felt the heat of its passage singe his hair.
This is the second book in the series. I also recommend Death Cloud by Andrew Lane to fans of Sherlock Holmes and to young mystery lovers who might want to be introduced to him.


  1. Very nice. I've not seen this series, but what a great idea - young Sherlock Holmes!

  2. Oooh, my husband loves Sherlock Holmes. I may have to splurge on these books for him. Here's Mine

  3. The hubby would love this. I'm not a huge Sherlock follower.
