Posted toThe Literary Lawyer A Thinker s Mystery 4.5 StarsI was not disappointed with the second novel in this so far intelligent series by Laurie R King In this novel, the author does an absolutely superb job of using the mystery to move the issues that the book contemplates I would not go so far as to say that this is message fiction but the author certainly uses this to deal with issues that, while historical, nevertheless persist Plot summary Our feisty protagonist, Mary Russell, is on the v [...]

On page 328 a what I hoped was minor subplot grabbed my suspension of disbelief and threw it out the bar window Subplot angled itself toward the exit and thrust open the louvered, slightly squeaky doors It walked over to Suspension chuckling mildly, the spurs on its boots clinking in what would ve been a merry way had it not been so ominous Subplot wedged one spurred boot s tip under Suspension s still sprawling figure, flipped it over onto its back and rested the boot on its chest Gazing coldly [...]

I m torn about this book Some of it I really liked, some I didn t like at all If I were reading this instead of listening to audio, I don t think I would have gotten past the first half of the book I didn t care for the character Veronica I didn t care for the character Margery,big time I didn t care for the Temple and all the people associated with it Too much religion, too little Holmes And Holmes confessing to Mary at the end of the book that he s wanted to kiss Mary since he first met her Sh [...]

After reading The Beekeeper s Apprentice, I decided to ride on the high of enjoyment I d acquired while reading it, and plunged straight into the next book in the Mary Russell series, titled A Monstrous Regiment of Women.To say that the title is intriguing is something of an understatement It is taken from the title of John Knox s treatise The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women, which was published in 1558 and is, as the title indicates, a document against women [...]

This is the second in the Mary Russell series, and it loses a star for its lame o mystery Mary Russell, now in her early twenties, takes the foreground as her mentor Holmes stays mostly in the background, due to Mary s increasing independence and a rising sexual tension between the two And again, the characters are the strongest part in this second book, the plot hinges on a sort of feminist mega church led by an extremely charismatic woman who surrounds herself with a flock of rich young women, [...]

This is my favorite of the Holmes Russell series, and one of my favorite books, period I ve read it innumerable times, and keep coming back to it A beautiful blend of coming of age, detection, romance, and gritty drama, it gets at the heart of the series Mary Russell s friend draws her into what seems like an odd religious cult, with disturbing overtones At the same time, she has to settle a growing discomfort with her relationship with Holmes, and her future with him Read it this book is awesom [...]

This is a solid, entertaining follow up book in a stand out series I can t say enough good things about this book and the series as a whole King isn t afraid of putting her characters into unique situations and is willing to touch on sensitive subjects such as religion She clearly spends time researching the historic period, religious, political, and social issues of the day Her attention to detail is effortless and will keep readers salivating for Russell and Holmes See my full review here

As I put this book down at 2 AM, I found myself thinking, why was this book so delicious I am not as enthralled with Mary Russell as I was after being introduced to her in Beekeepers Apprentice Maybe it is because now that I know her character, there is less to learn about her I am not quite so awed by her beauty, but if she keeps getting nicked with knives, bullets and needles, there won t be much of that left There were fewer brilliant deductions and fewer encounters with Holmes, although thos [...]

A Monstrous Regiment of Women isn t my favorite of the Holmes Russell novels, but that s a little like saying dark isn t my favorite type of chocolate It s still chocolate, and therefore by definition far better than many another thing.Mary Russell has graduated from Oxford, is about to turn twenty one and achieve separation from her horrible aunt and her joy at these two events is dampened a bit by the peculiarities of her evolving relationship with her mentor Holmes, never an easy person to de [...]

3.5 stars I ve been putting this one off because of the mixed reviews, but I liked it, and I ve already ordered the next book in the series The setting is great, and King s writing is than strong enough to overcome some plot weaknesses.This has a great and suitable title, and I loved the anti feminist quotes at the beginning of each chapter, everything from St Paul s Women should keep silent in church to Shakespeare s Thy husband is thy lord.It takes place in 1921 just as Mary is obtaining her [...]

I picked this up at an opportunity shop I m glad I did as it was a fun read.Mary Russell is an interesting character Sherlock Holmes is present, but much in the background.The plot involves suffrage, a female mystic, and a series of unexplained deaths All good fun, even if the villain is a little stereotypical But this is only the second book of the series, so I am assuming the bad guys get a little subtle as time goes on.Highly recommended.

The second of Laurie King s Mary Russell books returns to her heroine as she graduates from Oxford In London she encounters an old friend from earlier in university who is involved with the a church whose leader is a charismatic feminist But is all as it seems There are many things I like about this book The writing is excellent, and the post WW1 British English almost spot on there are a couple of slips, but nothing that made me shudder the occasional out the window sort of thing While some of [...]

Probably of a 3 1 2 star read, if only for the fact that the mystery was somewhat lame and part of the narrative view spoiler that is, the method the villain selected to try to kill Mary Russell hide spoiler rather implausible than it needed to be Still, Mary Russell is a well drawn character, her independence, intelligence, temper and sense of humour collectively helping me overcome any impulse I might have to refer to her as Mary Sue Russell Holmes is believably Holmes The setting is interes [...]

Sherlock Holmes wants to bang an obnoxious 15 year old No thanks Laurie King hasn t done Sherlock Holmes fans any favors with not only this book, but the whole inexplicably popular series There s just no accounting for taste.There are a lot of twists and turns in this particular book that go nowhere And some bits are just pointless Mary doing a back flip off the top of a hansom cab JUST because Holmes says something borderline obnoxious What the hell with a back flip Just jump off No need to be [...]

A Monstrous Regiment of Women is the second novel in Laurie R King s Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series I have very mixed feelings regarding this book Right until the end this was going to go on my favorites shelf and could only receive a 5 star rating but there is a twist at the end that has left me disappointed and uncomfortable for the future of the series I m still coming to terms with it I waited to write my review because of these feelings I did not want to unfairly overshadow the res [...]

A confusing and inconsistent book It s advertised as a novel of suspense but the suspense only starts in the second half of the novel and it contributes very little to the plotline.The novel takes place in 1921 in London and Oxford The book follows Mary Russell, a young heiress reading the British equivalent of studying don t you just love Anglicisms theology in Oxford, on her exploration of a new religious movement and its leader Margery Childe Like Mary, Childe is a feminist and she preaches t [...]

Disappointing After The Beekeeper s Apprentice I was looking forward to having an entire new mystery series to delve into, but if this is what I m in for I don t know that I ll bother There was the barest inkling of a good story, here the religious element and the idea of the regiment of women but all that was undercut but weaknesses in the story.And what weaknesses Mary Russell turns into Pauline in peril, getting addicted to heroin by our nefarious and completely random villain and has to be r [...]

She crossed the line She took what was an interesting take on a literary icon and got all mushy and romantic The first book was much better than this, and she d have been fine keeping Holmes and Russell as a team rather than a couple A married Sherlock Holmes just ridiculous.

After immensely enjoy a debut novel of a series, like The Beekeeper s Apprentice, I m always tentative about picking up the sequel fearing that it will pale in comparison However, in this case, I needn t worry IMHO it was better.No longer an apprentice but viewed as an assistant to Sherlock Holmes, Mary Russel is nearing her 21st birthday and emancipation When an Oxford friend introduces Mary to the charismatic Margery Childe, leader of the New Temple of God, she is skeptical of her true intenti [...]

Every one of the Holmes Russell books ends up making me hunt down supplemental reading After re reading this one, I now have to go find Evelyn Underhill s Mysticism A Study in the Nature and Development of Spiritual Consciousness Curse you, Mary Russell For me the story surrounding the mystery in this book is actually much interesting than the mystery itself The work that Margery Childe and her women are doing is intriguingly progressive, and Margery s sermons are remarkably inspiring it s hard [...]

I was anticipating reading this book, right on the heels of the first in the series, The Beekeeper s Apprentice but I was also a little apprehensive Would the characters appeal to me as much as they had previously Would King be able to achieve the same level of intelligent writing she set for herself in the first book Would the plot be intriguing and interesting enough to truly keep me wanting to read on in the series Yes, yes, and yes For someone who often abhors new slants on old classics I ca [...]

I liked the first book but put off following it up because of the very mixed reviews for this one Having reread BA, I eventually decided to go on and try this myself What I most liked about the first book was Mary, seeing a Sherlock who was realistic than in Doyle s books, and the historical setting So far Monstrous Regiment reminds me very much of the first book We re seeing a lot of Mary and not much Sherlock Also, there s no actual plot in the beginning, just following Mary around in her lif [...]
