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?

Move over Sherlock, I am with Marisol now!

I have been waiting for this baby, ever since I read book 1 of the series A Study in Shifters.  If you have read my post, then you know already that I was super excited about it and I can tell you right now that The Sign of the Serpent is as good.

I am beyond happy with this follow up and can I even say that I am dying for book 3 The Wolf of the Baskervilles that has already been announced!

So here, we follow up on the events that happened in A Study in Shifters, so my friends you need to have read this book. This is not one where you can read them out of order as a standalone.

So if you are discovering this series now, I suggest you start there and trust me you will not regret it. The more I think about ti, I think book 2 is even better than book 1. So many more things happen, fall into place and we are getting more info about the characters and their history.

I love the fact, that some questions were answered, but now I think I have more that need to be covered.

I really could not put down The Sign of the Serpent, and I cannot help myself loving Marisol more and more each page.

This is where it is easy for me to give you spoilers, but I am not going to do it. All I am going to say is you have to read the book. So, if you have read book 1, then you are going to love this baby.

I promise!

However, as I mentioned above, if this is your first time stumbling on this post and series, then my best advice is to go start from book 1 and lucky enough you are not far behind.

I do enjoy Majanka’s writing style very much and it make for some entertaining and enjoyable reading.  I am going to very highly recommend The Sign of the Serpent and beg and plead to not make us wait too long for book 3…

Pretty please!

You are going to love it!
