Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn't expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England—and Crowe somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web—where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

Rebel Fire, Andrew Lane's exciting second case for the teenage Sherlock, leads the young detective to America, straight into the heart of a shocking conspiracy.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 2/17/2014

    " This was a fun read. Lane seems to be trying hard to stay true to the original stories and yet fill in gaps in the stories, such as where Sherlock learned to play the violin. Nicely done. I may recommend we go back and order the first book of the series which we don't seem to have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celia | 2/13/2014

    " Sherlock Holmes is staying at his aunt and uncles house and is being tutored by Amyus Crow. His brother comes to visit him, or at least he thinks. But the truth is, Amyus Crow and his brother are actually following some people who are trying to redo the war between the states! Although Sherlock lives in England, He has read about the war between the states(which we call the civil war), and finds himself sailing to America to stop it from happening again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 2/12/2014

    " This book is even better than the first! It has non-stop action. It has a villain with a nasty secret, an unguessable plot and Sherlock's own brother is somehow involved. It is a great book you must read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony Keefer | 2/8/2014

    " Another fun read. Being the Sherlock Holmes fan that I am, it is very cool that Andrew Lane has built a young Sherlock Holmes that honors the original tales yet adds the action/adventure piece that many youth readers crave right now. The plot got a little crazy at times, especially the twisted villain who would give most Bond villains a run for their money is over-the-top-ness. My sixth grade son also loved this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hristina | 1/23/2014

    " It wasn't so good as the first one, but I enjoyed the light reading. Sometimes after work I like to read even children books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shauna Castle | 1/23/2014

    " This is a middle grade series but my love of all things Sherlock Holmes attracted me to it. Plenty of action and it held my interest from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brendon Haithcock | 1/16/2014

    " I haven't read the first one, and I found this in the library. It was really good. I love mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzan | 1/7/2014

    " I really enjoyed it and will admit to staying up til one in the morning to finish it last night because I was so close to the end and didn't want to leave it! I liked his idea about how Sherlock would have become interested in the violin and learned to play! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erikka | 12/18/2013

    " 3 1/2 stars. not as good as death cloud, premise very far-fetched, but still good and still very accurate depiction of a young holmes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn Borton | 12/9/2013

    " Rebel Fire was such a disappointment after Death Cloud. The story was not well organized, the mad man was ridiculous, the characters did not develop and the whole thing was boring. I took #3-#5 in the series off my to-read list. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 12/9/2013

    " Andrew Lane's development of the teenage Holmes towards the man with whom we're all familiar is shaping up nicely - I find young!Holmes pretty believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 12/3/2013

    " as the first in the series, I thought this book was a fun look at what and who Sherlock Holmes was before he became the great detective. "
