Sherlock Holmes and Miss James “Mori” Moriarty may have closed their first case, but the mystery is far from over in the thrilling sequel to Lock & Mori, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.
You know their names. Now discover their beginnings.
Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori—not her father—is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them.
Through it all, Lock—frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock—is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done. With the clock ticking, Mori will discover just how far she is willing to go to make sure that justice is served, and no one—not even Lock—will be able to stop her.
I've been dying to read this sequel. Just in case you don't know, Lock & Mori is an original story based on Moriarty and Sherlock set during their teenage years. If you're a Sherlock fan, this is a must because this is such an original way to visit those beloved characters.
Mind Games picks up pretty much where Lock & Mori ends. I was a bit nervous because sequels tend to be less impressive than the first book but this was not the case here. I was hooked from the very first chapter, which also happened with Lock & Mori. There's something about Mori that I find fascinating. Her voice is unique, so dark and strong that I just want to get lost in her world. Also, her relationship with Sherlock continues to develop in this one and I cannot tell you how much I love the way Petty adds layers to it.
This series is everything. It has mystery, romantic tension, complicated (to say the least) family dynamics, and one of the best duos in YA. Please do yourself a favor and read this. Or buy it for your friends. Or both. Yeah, actually, please do both.
