Sir Magnus Holmes, cousin to the more famous Sherlock, is asked to investigate the appearance of an otherworldly knight carrying a legendary sword in the cellar of a Victorian London pub.
This was my first real exposure to Garth Nix’s writing, even though I have a couple of his books on my TBR and I did enjoy this spin on the Holmes family as well as his writing style. The story does start off rather jarringly as you are dropped smack dab in the middle, getting a vignette really. Perhaps an introduction would have helped, but it was still enjoyable and a fun mini-adventure.
One thought on “Review | The Case of the Somewhat Mythic Sword by Garth Nix”
Nice review. Sometimes books need a good introduction. Sometimes getting dropped into the middle of action works well. Sounds like this one needed a bit of an introduction.
