Waiting on Wednesday (#194): These Ruthless Deeds by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


These Ruthless Deeds by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
Book Two of the These Vicious Masks series
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Publication Date: March 14, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

England, 1883. Still recovering from the loss of her beloved sister, Evelyn is determined to use her powers to save other gifted people from those who would harm them. But when her rescue of a young telekinetic girl goes terribly wrong, Evelyn finds herself indebted to a secret society devoted to recruiting and protecting people like Evelyn and her friends.

As she follows the Society’s orders, healing the sick and embarking on perilous recruitment missions, Evelyn sees her problems disappear. Her reputation is repaired, her friends are provided for, and her parents are newly wealthy. She reunites with the dashing Mr. Kent and recovers the reclusive Mr. Braddock (who has much less to brood over now that the Society can help him to control his dangerous power). But Evelyn can’t help fearing the Society is more sinister than it appears...



So I didn't totally love These Vicious Masks. But I'm still excited to read its sequel!

  1. I didn't read These Vicious Masks, my TBR pile is high as the sky and it is there. Maybe I will just wait to binge read it. Hope the ssequel is as good as it sounds.

  8. YES! I enjoyed These Vicious Masks for the most part as well, so I'm looking forward to this sequel. I feel like I might need to skim the last few chapters of TVM though, I've forgotten so much already!

    1. I hope so! I love historical fiction in YA; have you read Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassins trilogy? Sharon Cameron's books are historical fiction (kind of) as well. :D Happy reading!
