“What exactly might you mean by no?” I asked.
“I mean, miss, that my customers value their privacy and wouldn’t appreciate me sharing it willy-nilly with anyone who comes in off the street.”
I was so excited for Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas’s debut novel, These Vicious Masks, and even though it failed to live up to all my expectations, it was still a fun read. If you like historical fiction with a fantasy element, I’d recommend this one. You can read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
“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.“
