Format: Hardcover, 416 pages
Following an all-out battle with the walking Dead, the Spirit Hunters have fled Philadelphia, leaving Eleanor alone to cope with the devastating aftermath. But there’s more trouble ahead—the evil necromancer Marcus has returned, and his diabolical advances have Eleanor escaping to Paris to seek the help of Joseph, Jie, and the infuriatingly handsome Daniel once again. When she arrives, however, she finds a whole new darkness lurking in this City of Light. As harrowing events unfold, Eleanor is forced to make a deadly decision that will mean life or death for everyone.
I adored Something Strange & Deadly!!! Read my review here, if you like. At the end of it, Eleanor really was in a bad spot, and apparently she's left to her own devices. I can't wait to see how she masters that, and how the story will unfold in Paris! Oh, and there's of course Daniel, and their awesome banter. And Susan Dennard once posted a teaser involving an airship!! Plus, look at that stunning cover. Notice the subtle differences to the first one. If you'd read it, you know why she has her arm behind her back...
What do you think of my pick? Are you also impatient? What did you pick this week?
