Praise & Reviews

Junior Library Guild

  • Fans of previous Sherlock Files books will be glad to reunite with Xena and Xander for their latest adventure, but newcomers to the series also will be able to dive right into the story.
  • The dual disappearances—of the historical princess and the current princess—are neatly intertwined. Tracy Barrett’s tight plotting provides a satisfying resolution to these complementary mysteries.
  • Nonstop clues make for a fast-paced narrative that encourages readers to piece evidence together along with Xena and Xander.
  • Barrett’s exploration of class differences and delusions of grandeur provides a gentle, but never didactic, lesson about finding happiness regardless of social station.
