Psychic Nan Killian and medium Sarah Lyon-White, and their clever birds, the raven Neville and the parrot Grey, have been agents of the Elemental Fire Master, Lord Alderscroft, since they left school. Now they have a new commission: to work with the famous man living at 221 Baker Street. But not the man living in flat B; they are there to assist the one living in flat C. Taking the occult cases his more famous friend refuses, Dr John Watson and his wife Mary, who are themselves Elemental Masters of Water and Air, will need every skill the girls and their brids can muster. Together, the girls will confront the mysterious and deadly entity that nearly killed them as children: the infamous Haunt of Number 10 Berkeley Square, and a multitude of spirits that threaten to destroy not only a lifelong friendship, but far more than that.

Note: Saved from a harsh life of destitution as an enslaved orphan, Mags has been recruited by the King's Own Herald as a spy. In this special appointment, Mags has thrived - he is well fed, educated and treasured for his unusually powerful gift, an ability to mindspeak and mindhear anyone, regardless of whether they are gifted. This makes him the ideal undercover agent for the king. After a year of careful investigation of the gem mines, it becomes clear that half of what was being produced has been disappearing. No one knows where the gems are going, or why. Mags must go undercover to find out. As he delves deeper into the mystery, he will confront old foes, and unearth a secret that goes to the heart of the nation of Valdemar.

Note: Married life for Mags and Amily is smooth sailing. Professional life is something else entirely. Genteel blackmail amongst the highborn and wealthy is a way of life, even in the relatively staid and well-behaved Court at Haven - but someone is breaking the unspoken rules. Whoever it is has several families (who only visit the Court over the Midwinter Holidays) terrified to the point of refusing to talk to anyone about it. Then, when one well-loved young man commits suicide, and a beloved daughter is kidnapped, Mags and Amily have to pull out all the stops to find the blackmailer and bring him to justice.

Book:The bartered brides:2018
Author: Lackey, Mercedes
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Titan Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: The threat of Moriarty is gone but so is Sherlock Holmes. Even as they mourn the loss of their colleague, psychic Nan Killian, medium Sarah Lyon-White, and Elemental Masters John and Mary Watson must be vigilant, for members of Moriarty's network are still at large. And their troubles are far from over: in a matter of weeks, two headless bodies of young brides wash up in major waterways. A couple who fears for their own recently-wedded daughter hires the group to investigate, but with each new body, the mystery only deepens. The more bodies emerge, the more the gang suspects that there is dangerous magic at work, and that Moriarty's associates are somehow involved. But as they race against the clock to uncover the killer, it will take all their talents, Magic, and Psychic Powers and perhaps some help from a dearly departed friend to bring the murderer to justice.

Note: Mags, Herald Spy of Valdemar, and his wife, Amily, the King's Own Herald, are happily married with three kids. Their daughter, Abidela, dreams of building upon her parents' legacy by joining the Artificers, hoping to offset her seeming lack of a Gift. But when Abi senses the imminent collapse of a bridge only moments before it happens, she saves countless lives, including that of her best friend, Princess Katiana. The experience, though harrowing, uncovers her unique Gift - an ability to sense the physical strains in objects. Intrigued by the potential of her Gift, the Artificers seek to claim her as their own - but so do the Healers. Through training with both of them, Abi discovers unique facets of her Gift, including a synesthetic connection to objects that allows her to 'see' as well as feel the strains.
