~Waiting on Wednesday~ These Ruthless Deeds (These Vicious Masks #2)

                “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 Ruthless Deeds (These Vicious Masks #2) by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas
Out: 3/14

From Goodreads:
                England, 1883.  Still recovering from the loss of her beloved sister, Evelyn is determined to use her powers to save other gifted people from those who would harm them.  But when her rescue of a young telekinetic girl goes terribly wrong, Evelyn finds herself indebted to a secret society devoted to recruiting and protecting people like Evelyn and her friends.

                As she follows the Society’s orders, healing the sick and embarking on perilous recruitment missions, Evelyn sees her problems disappear.  Her reputation is repaired, her friends are provided for, and her parents are newly wealthy.  She reunites with the dashing Mr. Kent and recovers the reclusive Mr. Braddock (who has much less to brood over now that the Society can help him to control his dangerous power).  But Evelyn can’t help fearing the Society is more sinister than it appears…
               
Why I’m Waiting:
                I read the first book, These Vicious Masks (review), last year as an ARC so I’ve had even longer to wait for this one.  I’m ready to learn more about Evelyn and this Society and what sinister motives they may have.  I had a great time reading book one and want to know more about this world.

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.

  5. Gaaahhh, I want to read this one so desperately! I was a tiny bit surprised that the pub did not do print or electronic ARCs. Oh well! Longer wait for us. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Eve. =)
