“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on. This week’s pick is:
These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas
Jane Austen meets X-Men in this gripping and adventure-filled paranormal romance set in Victorian London.
England, 1882. Evelyn is bored with society and its expectations. So when her beloved sister, Rose, mysteriously vanishes, she ignores her parents and travels to London to find her, accompanied by the dashing Mr. Kent. But they’re not the only ones looking for Rose. The reclusive, young gentleman Sebastian Braddock is also searching for her, claiming that both sisters have special healing powers. Evelyn is convinced that Sebastian must be mad, until she discovers that his strange tales of extraordinary people are true—and that her sister is in graver danger than she feared.
Why I’m Waiting:
I was sold on X-Men adventure-filled paranormal romance in Victorian London. Now I’m not normally one for time/historical books in general (probably why I’ve never read Jane Austen) but I do love the paranormal aspect. Also it makes me think of the Infernal Devices series so win/win there. It sounds like a mystery, discovering powers and secrets and all but also finding her sister. I look forward to it. I also received an ARC of this and plan to get to it this week all things permitting! Plus the cover is awesome! I love masquerade masks!
