Susan Dennard's Something Strange and Deadly, the first in a series, releases on July 24th - and I'm anxious to read it because it sounds awesome.
It's Victorian, there are zombies, a necromancer, kidnapping, and a girl who has to take things into her own hands (all while her mother wants to secure their future by finding the most eligible bachelor to marry her).
Sounds like it could be perfect.
Watch the Q&A to find out more :)
Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…Out July 24 from HarperTeen//Goodreads/Book Depo/Amazon
Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—
The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.
And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.
Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.
Enjoy your weekend!
