OK, so I got 15 posts in 7 days, not a lot, but yeah, it was a pretty decent week! What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Death Island, and Final Fall.

Her family name tainted by her great-grandfather's crimes of piracy, Meriden Cummings is far from the typical 18th century woman. A social outcast, she works in a carpentry shop in a small village, where the people barely tolerate unconventional behavior.

However, her life takes a turn after a gang of pirates attack her village and her blood reveals an ancient map adorned with Mayan glyphs leading to Death Island. An island legends say is ruled by the Mayan god of the underworld, Ah Puch. Her great-grandfather had sought after the island before he vanished without a trace. Now, Meriden is about to journey across the sea to understand her family history.

There are only a few problems: her growing feelings toward a mysterious stranger linked to her great-grandfather's past; a greedy band of pirates after her great-grandfather's legendary treasure; and a contract she has unwittingly signed in blood with Ah Puch himself.
Sherlock Holmes and Miss James "Mori" Moriarty started at the top of their game—so they have that much farther to fall in this epic conclusion to the Lock & Mori trilogy, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.

You know their names. Now discover their beginnings.

Mori is out for revenge. Imprisoned in the English countryside, with her brothers held as leverage, she's never felt angrier or more helpless. When an opportunity for escape arises, Mori takes it and flees back to the streets of London, where she is finally able to plot the demise of her recently freed father and his cohorts.

But after a bittersweet reunion with Lock, she discovers that he may not be the ally he once was. In the face of blackmail, threats, and Lock's noble attempts to thwart her crusade, Mori has an impossible decision to make.

Can Mori wash the blood from her hands and walk away? Or will her final fall from grace be the end of everyone she loves?

    1. I pre-schedule the meme posts, back in December, I got all of 2018's meme posts done till 2019, so that gives me a good number of posts, at least one a day, and then Saturdays for reviews :) Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  2. I have the 2nd Lock & Mori book on my TBR mountain. I didn't know the 3rd was available. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. Yeah, I think it came out late 2017. Not totally sure though, since I did get an ARC of it...Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
