Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

You had me at Stoker and Holmes!! Once I could get past the beautiful cover jacket of THE CLOCKWORK SCARAB by Colleen Gleason, I was completely transfixed by it synopsis. This novel sounds wicked amazing and I am giddy with excitement over the possibilities that this duo can come up with. If only I did not have to wait until December to enjoy it.

Stoker & Holmes, Book One

by Colleen Gleason
ISBN-13: 978-1452110707
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Pages: 356

Two young women of similar age and standing have disappeared: one found dead and the other still missing. The only clue to connect them is a small Egyptian clockwork scarab. Only Miss Stoker and Miss Holmes are well-positioned enough—similar in
age and stature as they are to the victims—to investigate. An unlikely pair, the fierce Evaline Stoker and logical Mina Holmes must follow in the footsteps of their infamous families—Miss Holmes has inherited her Uncle Sherlock’s keen investigative skills, while Miss Stoker has accepted her family calling as a hunter of the undead. The partners must find a way to work together, while navigating the advances of a strange yet handsome American, a clever Scotland Yard investigator, and a cunning thief, to solve the mystery of the clockwork scarabs.

Set in steam punk London, steeped in Egyptian mythology and literary references, with a surprising time travel twist and compelling romantic triangles, Colleen Gleason has crafted a fast-paced and romantic debut young adult novel.
