#BookReview: These Vicious Masks (These Vicious Masks, #1) by @tkshanker & @kellyzekas

These Vicious Masks (These Vicious Masks, #1)About the Book: 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.

About the Author: Mild-mannered assistant by day, milder-mannered writer by night, Tarun Shanker is a New York University graduate currently living in Los Angeles. His idea of paradise is a place where kung-fu movies are projected on clouds, David Bowie’s music fills the air and chai tea flows freely from fountains.

Kelly is the co-author of the THESE VICIOUS MASKS trilogy with Tarun Shanker. She graduated from NYU with degrees in Acting and Sociology. She likes to think these are somewhat helpful in writing.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This book makes me want to read Jane Austen's books.

Recommend this book? Yes!!

Notes and Opinions: You have a main character who knows what she wants to do and never gives up! She was so wonderful! Then you toss her into a story with snark, twists, and people with special abilities all wrapped up in a beautifully done historical setting and you have a recipe for the best book ever!!! If you love X-Men and you love Jane Austen type books then this is the book for you!  Now I'm not really into classics but this one worked really! The blend really worked and I loved it! Though I would have loved to see more romance.
