In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.

Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.

As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.

I love the steam punk atmosphere that I can see on the cover of this book. I was immediately drawn to the woman on the front when I first spotted this cover on Goodreads. Her outfit is just so eccentric and the colors chosen give the book a very “Sherlock Holmes” feel. In most of his movies London always appears to be dark and gloomy and I get the same sensation here as well. Plus, I love a good, strong, and witty female character and this one looks and sounds like she is a keeper! What is everyone else waiting on?

It does have a Sherlock Holmes feel to it, and I agree about the woman on the cover. She stands out against the background but blends in enough to where it all comes together :)

You had me at "alternate London"! I definitely see the Sherlock Holmes vibe you're talking about - and the cover is truly eye-catching. Great pick!

Thanks for stopping by my WoW!
