The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…SUPER excited for this book. When the tag line is:
Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—
The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.
And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.
Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.
Something Strange and Deadly
is the first in a trilogy
that will thrill lovers of mystery,
the macabre, and all things Victorian.
I can't help but fangirl. They compared it to the Clockwork Angel. If it's not nearly as good I'm going to be severely disappointed.
