The thing is… I kept spelling Mycroft as Microsoft in my head while reading. 😂
Anyway, this was a pretty fun and intriguing trilogy. I had heard a lot of good things about this trilogy and it was sitting on my e-reader for a loooong time, so I finally decided to pick it up and daaaaamn, I was so not expecting it o be this good! Also, this was a pretty good Sherlock adaptation.
The Mysterious Plot!
This trilogy follows Mycroft and Rachel as they hop onto solving one mystery to the other which eventually leads to the mystery of how Mycroft’s parents were killed. So many freaking things kept happening, from Rachel being kidnapped to them finding out who killed Mycroft’s parents.
The first book was pretty awesome, a homeless guy who used to be Mycroft and Rachel’s friend is found dead on the streets and eventually, they figure it out that it was not as simple as it looked like. I looooved how involved they got while solving the mystery, especially Mycroft but Rachel didn’t lag behind either. And that ending!! I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry seeing their condition, it was truly a dangerous situation but kind of hilarious at the same time.
The second and third book is more of a link up together as the events continue from the second book to the third one. A carjacking case brings Mycroft back to his hometown a.k.a London and it’s a case similar to his parents’ death. My poor baby went through a lot but Rachel, oh my freaking goodness, I didn’t think she would survive. I was horrified at the tortures she had to face.
The 3rd book felt a little slow, pace-wise and the first 50% was a little less interesting than the other books in this series but I definitely enjoyed how everything was executed but things definitely took a whole new turn and it felt like everything was on the verge of a freaking apocalypse. It was sooo exciting because the killer was about to be revealed yet the risk was too high. Again, that freaking ending completely freaked me out! Like seriousfreakingly! But, in the end, I was satisfied how everything wrapped up.
I absolutely adored Mycroft and Rachel!! They are best friends and their friendship slowly evolved into something much more as the book proceeded. Mycroft’s past made me so sad, he felt broken and urge to find out his parents killer never left him a moment of peace. But it was only with Rachel he found his sanctuary. The chemistry between them was off the charts!! Holy hell, sometimes I had to fan myself! Ahem! Anyway, they made a pretty good team and despite everything, they managed to support and never lost faith in each other.
The Mystery Aspect!
This was one of the most important aspects of this trilogy and I was constantly on the edge! I didn’t think I would finish this trilogy so fast but once I started it was sooo difficult to put it down because I was desperate to know what happened next. Also, the fact about Mycroft’s parents’ death remained constant throughout this trilogy and was the main focus of the 3rd book,I sooo didn’t see the twist coming and things took such a dangerous turn, and by dangerous I mean suicide mission, I was so scared but it was thrilling at the same time, I definitely enjoyed how everything was executed.
Every trilogy was a super awesome read! The plot managed to surprise me throughout the series and I loved the character growth of Rachel and Mycroft. The mysterious aspect was absolutely done well and the writing was smooth and easy to read.
So guys, have you read this trilogy? What did you think about it? Or is it in your tbr?
