REVIEW: These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas

Book Blurb: 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.

Jane Austen meets X-Men in These Vicious Masks, the thrilling Victorian adventure from debut authors Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas!

My Review: This book really is Jane Austen meets X-Men and it's not bad. The book is surprisingly good. We have our brooding Mr. Darcy character in Sebastian Braddock along with a ton of interesting characters. Though it seemed to me that London was teeming with all these people with powers. The ending was sort of sad with the death of a character that didn't need to die. However a lot of the stuff that happened in this book was very predictable. This book is worth picking up though and worth a read especially if you're a fan of both Jane Austen and the X-Men. Now I want to read the second book in the series.

Rating: 4 ½ stars out of 5
