Review: Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes are at it again fighting their nemesis, the Ankh. This time they are searching for the lost Chess Queen that belonged to Queen Elizabeth I. They must escort the rather boring Princess Lurelia of Betrovia whose country gave the chess set to the queen years before. Evaline, a vampire hunter, was trained by Mina’s mother, while Mina is niece to Sherlock Holmes. Narration alternates between Evaline and Mina and is often quite entertaining. Plot twists along with the fascinating steampunk underworld will keep readers turning the pages.
