Meet Marisol Holmes: High School Student, jaguar shifter, and great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes. She’s solved countless supernatural cases, but her next one’s the hardest yet. Why?

Marisol is about to lose her heart.

Two days ago, terrible events shattered the very foundation of the Conclave. Now, Marisol Holmes swears she’ll stop at nothing to destroy the man she once loved: her arch nemesis, Mannix.

But when a cryptic clue left by Mannix leads Marisol to a secret room that once belonged to her father, she realizes that hunting down Mannix won’t be that easy. If she wants to catch him, she’ll have to retrace the steps of her own past and discovers secrets that might have been best left buried.

When the hunt for Mannix brings Marisol to London, she teams up again with Roan and Wyatt on a quest for the truth that leads her through the dark alleys of London, to shady shifter pubs, to libraries cloaked in magic, and eventually to an abandoned castle in Scotland that once belonged to her family.

But Mannix is as sadistic as he’s smart. At every turn, Marisol and her friends face harsh truths and deadly puzzles, and risk their lives to uncover a past that should stay buried. With the stakes getting higher and Marisol’s attraction to Roan growing, can Marisol deny what she truly wants, even if it puts her new love on a collision course with her villainous ex?



My Review:

Marisol Holmes the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes likes solving cases just like her grandfather. So when an old enemy Mannix makes an appearance in her life again Marisol is determined to find him and put a stop to him and to also make him pay for what he has done.

Marisol is still grieving from a terrible loss in her past and another case to solve but when her enemy Mannix starts leaving little clues that lead her to London she teams up with a couple of old friends Wyatt and Roan. Mannix has Marisol, Wyatt and Roan running all over London looking for clues and puzzles to solve.

Marisol hopes that at the end of all these clues and puzzles is the answer to all her questions. Like was her father murdered or was it an accident? If he was murdered who did it? When she finds the answers to all of her questions and to what is going on with Conclave and the death of her father will they all lead to the same answer or man?

The Sign of the Serpent is a very intriguing read that will keep you on the edge of your seat following all the clues trying to guess what they all mean. Once you think you have it all figured out and know what is happening then guess again because you don’t.

There are clues and puzzles and mystery around every corner just leading to more and more leading you to an ending that you just know you have already figured out but let me tell you that ending was not what I was expecting at all.

This has been another exciting journey with Marisol looking for clues and solving cases I can’t wait to see what cases she has to work on in the episode of The Adventures of Marisol Holmes.

I would highly recommend The Sign of the Serpent to one and all who loves a good mystery and Sherlock Holmes of course.
