Okay, we all know I’m totally gaga for this one because of the cover, so let’s just get right to it:
SERIOUSLY? Talk about having me at “hello”.
(YOU GUYS! THERE IS A SMOKE STACK ON BIG BEN!)
Then I read the blurb, and it got a bit more ridiculous.
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.
REALLY? You want me to read a story about a quasi-Victorian heroine who probably would have been good friends with Helen Magnus, and you area also promising me intrigue and smoke stacks on Big Ben? WHERE DO I SIGN?
Tiffany Trent’s, “The Unnaturalists” come out on August 14, 2012. Mark your calendars.
