A beautifully written story set in Victorian-Era Philly with ZOMBIES!!
I received an Advance Reader's Edition of this book from Epic Reads. Thank you guys soo much!
Eleanor Fitt is an extremely strong-minded heroine, which is quite refreshing considering the time period. She tells the story and oh! what a story it is! The scenes are so vividly imagined that this reviewer felt as if she was actually walking through the streets with Eleanor. The world building in this novel left reviewer speechless at times, it was that good! The mystery of finding out what happened to Eleanor's brother brings us to a world of necromancers, zombies, and the elusive spirit hunters. Daniel (who is a member of the little rag-tag group called the spirit hunters who are trying to stop the zombies from attacking Philadelphia) and Eleanor's often-times frustrating relationship will leave readers cheering for them to "just kiss already"! Readers will be hanging on to every beautifully descriptive word as they race to figure out just what really is going on in Philly, and who is behind it. This enchanting mix of zombies, mystery, magic, forbidden love, and good old-fashioned girl power is NOT TO BE MISSED!
This was awesome. I enjoyed Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince just fine, but this was a Victorian world that I fell in love with. Eleanor Fitt is a spectacular heroine, the boy she likes is kinda cute, and the zombie and supernatural fights are very exciting. Highly recommended, even for those just dipping their feet into the period piece pool for the first time.
