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.
So Amazon said
that this book can be compared to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice meets the X-Men.
That intrigued me I had to read this book.
I think what I wrote on Litsy is "I liked it at the beginning, the middle was "eh" and then I LOVED it at the end! It was exactly as Amazon said: regency era and superpowers! (that's kind of a weird combination).
There was a little bit of romance, a lot of mystery, and---well superpowers.
I enjoyed reading this YA novel and am looking forward to the sequels. I understand it is the first in a trilogy.
