Answer the questions:
The knives for opening the Presents from Mycroft are only awarded by successfully completing hidden object & match 3 puzzles related to the monthly event. These puzzles are accessed via the prominent open book open on the lectern on the far left of the library screen (just to the left of the parlour nook where Doctor Watson often sits). You cannot get the knives from any of the regular book quests. Also the knives from each monthly quest disappear when that quest ends; they don't carry over to the next month's quest.
The X-bow shoots virtual bolts along the rows and columns of the match 3 puzzles. These bolts eliminate any tokens in that row or column, such that they a replaced with new ones. The bolts will also destroy any dangers (for example: balloons, & bombs) or blockers (for example: chains, ice, feathers...) in their path. When the X-bow bolt hits a feather, though, the bolt is used up; it doesn't continue on. Finally the bolt will activate any bonus token it hits, such as flasks, barred tokens, and chromatic discs. Beware of this effect because the bonus token is used up in this manner, and it might not be used up in the most advantageous way for you, the player.
When you open the books, you can get their specific side quests, usually by completing the first couple of quests related to the story. Once you finish these, you can continue to do puzzles in each of the books' three settings, but there will be no more side quests for that book. As you follow the main questline, though, Holmes & Watson work their way around to each book. Then you'll receive more quests for that book and it's characters as part of the main quest. In playing, I've noticed the main quest return twice to both the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Wizard of Oz. I think the main storyline has revisited Alice in Wonderland, at least thrice! By the way, ever notice that all the books are at least 100 years old? That way their copyrights are expired and G5 can use them without paying any royalties. ;)
Cynical answer: give G5 Games *real* money for them. :/ The only way I've seen to earn them in game is by making level, which gains you 1 (ONE) lousy gem. You also can get 10 gems by filling out the game registration, which involves telling G5 your age, sex, location, birthdate, and email address. I'm sure they would *never* use this info for "push" marketing or resell it, aren't you. Unlike the coveted gems, it's easy to earn in game coins — thousands of them — the trouble is, unlike the gems/crystals, there's almost nothing useful in game that you can get with the coins.
I agree this game is a lot of fun and challenging, but way too expensive. It seems the more levels/books you achieve, the faster your energy goes and it’s almost as if they want you to play less. As for the expense, it is getting out of hand, as the more levels you play the harder they are and you use up all saved items…or end up having to buy something. I am just about ready to move on to a new app…this one is becoming too frustrating and expensive. Sad, as I really enjoyed it.
