New Treasures: These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
Well here’s something interesting — a Victorian era superhero novel. Debut novelists Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas bring us the tale of Evelyn Wyndham and her sister Rose, a Victorian adventure featuring evening parties, abductions, a love triangle, witty dialog, mysterious and secret societies, fog-shrouded London, villains with phenomenal abilities, intrigue, mystery, and more. It’s being called Jane Austen meets X-Men, which isn’t a description I hear very often.

Cool cover too. And as usual, certain big name online retailer has even lower prices for both e-version and paperback, $7.09 and $6.13 respectively at the moment. Given the lower price for the paperback, I’ve already ordered that version.
