I Want to Read It (55): Downward Spiral



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.



The Downward Spiral (Lock and Key, 2) by Ridley Pearson, October 10. 2017. Published by HarperCollins. Source: Wish list.
James Moriarty hasn’t been the same since he enrolled at Baskerville Academy. During his first year, he was forced to room with the insufferable Sherlock Holmes, he grew distant from his younger sister, Moria, and then, horribly, his father died under mysterious circumstances.

Now with school back in session, James has become more isolated than ever. And for the first time in her life, Moria isn’t sure if her brother is on her side. The only person she can trust is Sherlock. Sherlock listens to Moria’s problems and tries to break through James’s wall. He is obsessed, maybe to an extreme, with finding the truth about their father’s death. But at least Sherlock cares, and that’s why Moria joins him on a quest that leads to a secret sect, a rare jewel, and a murder that may change everything. The search for the truth is darker than even they could have anticipated. Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series, said, “Only a mastermind like Ridley Pearson could put such a fresh spin on Sherlock Holmes.” It’s another edge-of-your-seat mystery-adventure from New York Times bestselling author Ridley Pearson.

Why


Earlier this month I shared my thoughts on The Initiation, the first book in Ridley Pearson's newest series Lock and Key, which was a great re-imaging of Sherlock Holmes (as a young teen). That brings up to my immense need of getting my hands on a copy of Downward Spiral because I just need more Sherlock, Moira, James, and to see what new mysteries and secrets will come about.

Have you start the Lock and Key series?
