Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas
Paranormal Young Adult
Releases February 2016 from Swoon Reads/Macmillan
Evelyn has no interest in marriage and even the dashing Mr. Kent can’t inspire her to give in to society’s expectations. She’d much rather assist her beloved sister Rose in her radical quest to become a doctor. Then she meets Sebastian Braddock. The reclusive gentleman is vexing, annoyingly attractive, and quite possibly mad—and his interest in Rose is galling. So when Rose disappears, Sebastian is immediately suspect.
Yet Sebastian’s strange tales of special powers soon prove to be true, and Evelyn learns that Rose’s kidnappers have much worse in mind for her than simply ruining her reputation. Surrounded by secrets, lies, and unprecedented danger, Evelyn has no choice but to trust Sebastian, yet she can’t help but worry that his secrets are the most dangerous of all…
Well hello there, gorgeous cover! I love absolutely everything about this cover, from the background texture to the type to the bright pop of red in the ribbon, so it of course went on my list as soon as I saw it. And while characters with secrets (I'm looking at you Sebastian) cause me stress, especially in a romantic situation, I still can't help but want to uncover every last one of them like the obsessively curious reader I am. I die a little inside every time I look at the release date, but I'm sure it will be 2016 in no time, right? RIGHT?!
