Review: The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to post my first contribution to the Baker Street Challenge Blog. Here's a snippet of my review of The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King:

In The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, Laurie R. King introduces Sherlock Holmes to the most unlikely companion – a young woman with an intellect that matches the legendary detective in every way. Holmes is well-known for his lack of tolerance for the mental acuity of others – so for Mary Russell to have won his admiration, respect, and affection is a remarkable feat. This series needs to achieve two objectives to succeed – the character of Holmes has to be true to the canon and Russell has to be a true equal to him in mind and mettle.
