A Study In Shifters
Majanka Verstraete
(The Adventures of Marisol Holmes, #1)
Publication date: June 26th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Seventeen-year-old Marisol Holmes may be the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, but it’s hard to live up to the family name when only one mistake can spell your downfall. After trusting the wrong guy in a case gone totally wrong, Marisol convinces the Conclave, an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases, to give her a last chance to prove her worth, and maybe even heal her broken heart

After all, as a half-blood jaguar shifter, Marisol is uniquely qualified to solve this murder—and every scrap of evidence points toward the culprit being a fellow jaguar shifter. But is one of her own people involved, or is this all a ploy to kick Marisol’s mother off the shifter throne?

Then Marisol discovers her best friend, Roan, is missing, and maybe the killer’s next target. The stakes just got higher than political intrigue. Just when things couldn’t get worse, Marisol’s ex-boyfriend-turned-nemesis, Mannix, starts leaving sinister clues for her. Marisol fears this case might be far more personal than she could’ve imagined.

It’s time for Marisol to prove her worth, or her people could fall into chaos while her best friend loses his life.

A Study In Shifters by Majanka Verstraete

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Seventeen year old Marisol Holmes is a jaguar shifter hybrid and human half breed with a penchant for solving crimes, just like her ancestor Sherlock! After messing up her last job, Marisol is given a second chance to prove herself, and comes to England to take on a new case in the exclusive Waynard Academy where she investigates the murder of a student.

Then there’s the ex-boyfriend, a wolf shifter, Mannix, who once betrayed Marisol, who’s now equivalent to a Moriarity type character, and her arch enemy. What a reboot!

Marisol is also the daughter of the revered leader of her clan, which adds another layer of political intrigue. Could what’s going on even be politically motivated? Is someone trying to ruin their family name? Or do her issues go much deeper, and that’s what they want you to believe?

What a great start to a new series, A Study In Shifters turned out to be! I especially like the whole idea surrounding the Conclave, an underground organisation of detectives solving supernatural cases!

Young adult Author Majanka Verstraete, has written a fresh, fun, and feminine take on the infamous Sherlock Holmes murder mystery stories. I can’t wait to see what comes next!

Thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for my ARC copy.
