Ooh, this is one that I was really looking forward to! A young adult historical paranormal? Yes, please! And I’m happy to report that it’s extremely enjoyable — I highly recommend you check this book out. Of course, it’s the cover that drew me in at first but then I read that blurb and I was sold.
The two society girls from 1890’s New York City were so adorable — effervescent and so excited about traveling and seeing the world. They were like a breath of fresh air! There’s a strong Regency feel to this story (obviously, considering that’s the time frame) without getting too maudlin or sappy (as some romances in that time period can be). And I loved how the family mythology was introduced and how each girl had their part to play but, being headstrong, smart young ladies, they didn’t always do as they were told (Women’s Lib, girls!). Ooh, and there’s romance (yay!). This story is definitely worth a big ole pre-squee. It doesn’t come out until July so put it on your wishlist!
