Starring Millie Bobby Brown (Godzilla vs Kong, "Stranger Things") as the young and brilliant Enola, the graphic novel features an original story that bridges the adventures of the first film with the highly anticipated sequel, Enola Holmes 2. Fans and new readers alike can connect with Enola’s spunky story as she embarks on an adventure helping (and evading!) her famous brothers – Sherlock and Mycroft (portrayed on page and screen by fan-favorite actors Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin).
Picking up where 2020’s exceptionally popular film left off, readers and fans will join Sherlock Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola in a thrilling adventure and uncover the new mystery that she is up against. After a mysterious group of anarchists abduct her brother Mycroft, Enola investigates his disappearance in hopes of rescuing him and recovering something precious he took from her. With the help of Lord Tewkesbury and a young boy on the streets named Shag, she uncovers the truth behind her brother's abduction and unravels a web of mystery that takes her deep into the London underground as she tries to foil the anarchists’ nefarious plot!

I very much enjoyed the movie and this takes place right after the first one. Enola tries to save Mycroft after witnessing his kidnapping. She make new acquaintances and old ones are there to help her along the way. I enjoyed the illustrations in this graphic novel and hope there are more stories to come.
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for letting me read this ARC for an honest review.
While on a mission to retrieve her mother's book from Mycroft's lodgings, Enola witnesses her brother's abduction by the anarchist group Alarm. After leaving a note for Sherlock, Enola enlists Lord Tewskbury to aid her in her search. They end up down in the underbelly of London where they enlist a runner to help them find Mycroft and free him while also discovering the scheme that Alarm has concocted. A quick fun adventure clearly in the spirit and style of the Netflix movie. An enjoyable diversion!
Loved this book. The illustrations, graphic drawings and Witty comments are so entertaining. I love Enola’s feisty spirit and have a go attitude. She won’t let the men drag her down and she knows best- well she thinks she does. I really liked the details in the drawings, they add so much to the story.
A graphic novel spin-off based on Netflix's Enola Holmes film. This will be sure to delight fans of the film, with its drawings that mirror the film actors remarkably well. This graphic novel follows Enola as she embarks on a wild goose chase through London to rescue her brother Mycroft, who has been abducted by an anarchist gang. With the help of Lord Tewkesbury and the mudlarks, can Enola save not only her brother, but also foil a plot that would put Guy Fawkes to shame? While this is a light, entertaining read for young people looking for fast-paced action, it is not likely to satisfy older readers, especially those who are fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories.
