A Stoop to a Rake
by A.J. Hall
A Stoop to a Rake is the sixteenth in a series of Queen of Gondal ebooks by the author A.J. Hall. You might like to refer to their suggested reading order & more detailed series information. It is a quasi-historical AU of the BBC Sherlock series set (more-or-less) in three fantasy kingdoms devised by the Bronte children, with occasional excursions into other fandoms (Life on Mars, in this case).
Charis plays a dangerous game and realises too late that the stakes are far higher than she imagined. Now only her wits, her nerve and her gambler's instincts stand between her and the Pretender's plans for the three kingdoms. And she is very far into enemy territory, and feels so very, very alone.
Dedicated, with enormous gratitude, to my beta Caulkhead and shezan for invaluable suggestions.
