In this third installment of the Stoker and Holmes series, Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes have reluctantly agreed to act as social chaperones and undercover bodyguards for Princess Lurelia of Betrovia, who has arrived in London to deliver a letter that details the secret location of an ancient chess queen that's been missing for centuries. But when the letter - which will heal a centuries-old rift between England and the Betrovians - is stolen out from under Evaline and Mina's watchful eyes, the two girls are forced into a high-stakes race to ensure they find the chess queen before anyone else does.The Stoker and Holmes series is suitable for ages 12 through adult, and the series should be listened to or read in order:

Chess Queen Enigma does not disappoint

Gripping, hard to put down, this third book in the Stoker Holmes series is fantastic. The strong characters are off into another mystery and the Ankh has returned. A centuries old mystery, a chess board and a race to the finish, or check mate! The character, the writings s adventure, I loved it all!

Love the story

I love this series, however, the narrator was too monotone and used little emotion in her voice. I think this would have been a 10/10 had she used more emotion. The story itself is really enjoyable and a nice mix of steampunk and Victorian society.

Love this series

I love the Stoker and Holmes series, the story is plotted well and has some really great charcters. I really love how their friendship has blossomed over the series's and how they make a great team in their detective work, dispite their differences in background and personality's. This book was just as gripping as the ones previous and just as many plot twists and surprises. The book is aimed at teens and adults, which is perfect as I can listen to the book any where, at any time without worrying if my children are around me, which is a real bonus. The narrator reads the book well, she is very clear in her speech and has a lovely soothing voice, which is a pleasure to listen to. I would definitely recommend this audio book and the others audio books in the series to any one with a love for detectives and mystery solving, and as mentioned above is great for the whole family to enjoy, as there are no nastys to be found in the story.

Another Great Instalment

Loving this series! It's so great to see a different characterization of two great fictional individuals. Yes the originals pop up every now and then but to see the younger versions deal with growing into their characters is great fun. Loving the story and looking forward to the next one.
