“As I watched her bones heal, the bleeding slow, and the bruises fade away, I let out a heavy sigh of relief. Within a minute, she looked like she might on any normal morning before rising from bed.

I’ve had Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas’s sequel These Ruthless Deeds for quite a while. I ended up rereading the first book and enjoyed it so much more the second time around. This second book was also a treat. You can read my mini-review of this one hereCover is linked to Goodreads. Excerpt taken from page 156.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “England, 1883. Still recovering from a devastating loss, 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…”

  1. This book sounds interesting!! But I’m not sure if I’m gonna love historical fiction. I actually haven’t read any historical fiction book. But the sound of “historical” bore me already 😂😂😂

    I’ve been listening to Saturn-Sleeping at Last over and over again, are you the one who recommend this song to me? I can’t remember 😂

    1. Haha, I know what you mean. I need a little something extra with my historical fiction novels. Magic and mayhem usually do.

      I did not recommend this one, but the other day I was thinking of one for you and I couldn’t remember if you had already recommended me the band, so totally understandable. I’m actually familiar with this one though. It’s very relaxing.
