Let’s face it, Cumberbitches: Something happened! Sherlock and Irene Adler didn’t just hold hands, did they? What would happen if the famous detective from Baker Street were suddenly confronted with his (quite clever) offspring, describes Christian Humberg in the fantastic book series “Die unheimlichen Fälle des Lucius Adler” (Thienemann-Esslinger-Verlag). After the great success last year, Humberg now brings the new adventure “Angriff der Automatenmenschen” (Attack of the Machine People) exclusively to FedCon – fun not only for serial junkies.

Die unheimlichen Fälle des Lucius Adler: Angriff der Automatenmenschen
(The eerie cases of Lucius Adler: Attack of the Machine People)

They’re all over London: People who support everyone actively. But suddenly they seem to develop a life of their own, they turn against their owners, crimes are increasing. What is behind the strange behavior of robots? Are they possibly remote controlled? A race against time begins. Can Lucius Adler and his friends stop the eerie machines?

Press comments

“The third volume of the youth book series also scores once again with a very lively and consistently entertaining story, but above all with the charm of the four young protagonists.

Nautilus Fantasymagazin, Daniel Bauerfeld
